    Default Ideas on keeping Meatball still

    Hey, Meatball has some sort of infection in his wrinkles. Some of you suggested witch hazel, powder etc. His vet appointment is Friday in the mean time I wanted to help him. HOW does everyone do it!!!!!!!!!!! I did the witch hazel and never got to the powder!!!!! The world came to an end with meatball!! He ran for cover, I bribed him with every treat that usually meatball would sell his soul for, than when I finally got him out he ran and rolled around like crazy. It was like Texas chainsaw massacre over here, his infection really started bleeding from his reaction!!!! Seriously he turned down bacon, Meatball NEVER turns down bacon.

    any advice on keeping him still to clean him out? Or do I need bulldog Xanax?

    UGH.... can you put his leash/harness on the stand on it so he can not run around till it dries or is there someone that can hold him for you?

    Will try the leash when husband comes home tonight. It's a collar, we never needed a harness for Meatball. He was always a great walker and never tries to pull or chase other dogs during walks. Thanks for the advice

    So if he has an infection the witch hazel might burn, which could be why he is running away. If his skin is cracked or already sensitive, you might want to stop using the witch hazel. Warm water and apple cider vinegar is a homemade alternative that works for some people. Ask the vet about duoxo wipes, they don't sting. I keep them handy for when Ruckus's wrinkles get irritated. I hope Meatball feels better soon!

    And once the infection is gone, keep up with the wrinkle maintenance every day, even if just with a dry kleenex, and Meatball should be ok with the routine of it. Lola lets me do all the wipes twice a day with a kleenex, douxo wipe, witch hazel, whatever we need. Paw, other paw, toes, other toes, boogies (eye wrinkles), other wrinkles (nose rope), ears, bum (tail pocket), wee (her wee), belly. I say all the words as I do it, and then the next time, i just need to say what I need to wipe and she's ready to get it.
