    Default Penny rubbed her face off...

    Penny decided it was a good idea to escape her crate while the hubby and I were at work. She not only succeeded in escaping she also bent both doors, moved the crate 4 feet beck from where it started, bent the base, rubbed her face RAW and hurt left front paw. So, I've checked her paw out it seems fine, I've been giving her doses of aspirin every 8 to 12 hours based on her body weight, and I've been trying to put neosporin on her mouth and cheeks, but she licks it off immediately. What do you all recommend for her raw cheeks and nose? It isn't bleeding it's just very red, and looks really painful. I thought about getting Aquaphor since it's really thick, but wanted to check with you all for recommendations.

    First, I'm so sorry this happened, how traumatizing!

    I know to be careful of giving aspirin w/out Vet approval
    (can't remember why), hoping someone else knows. You
    might call your Vet and ask for advice.

    I know my Catahoula got stung on his cheek by a wasp
    and the other dogs licked his cheek raw, it was an awful
    wound! My Vet had some miracle cream (in a small tube)
    it just took a tiny bit on the wound, it looked 1000x better
    by the next day! Will try to find the tube & get name of it.

    Possibly Vetericyn would heal it too. Sending hugs & prayers!

    RIP beloved boy.

    Yes, I would try Vetericyn - I just received mine earlier this week, and as luck would have it, I came home to Tyson with some sort of irritation or hot spot yesterday so I started the Vetericyn this morning. I used neosporin last night. I hope I start to see improvement. Alot of members really rave about it, hope it works just as great for us. Poor Penny - I wonder what the heck made her do all that. Is she feeling better this morning. And yes, I would use that aspirin very carefully...

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Checking in on y'all, how is Penny's face today?

    Got to thinking she rubbed from itching, is she on
    anything for allergies?

    Hoping for better news, continued prayers over her!

    How is Penny today? did she do all this due to anxiety? I would just clean it with peroxide to make sure it does not get dirty and then a little neosporin they alwasy lick it off, but try to distract her with treats so she ignores it when you first place it on the sore

    I think the best thing for Penny would be a new baby brother. I believe a 6 week old puppy brother would calm her down. Ralphie

    Her face is almost as good as new. She has a small rubbed area of irritation but her nose is a lot better. It is from anxiety she does fine some days and other days she goes crazy. We've decided to put her in the bathroom from now on and deal with her destructive shinanigans in there.

    Come on Brandi. Just one more puppy. They say 4 is no different than 3. Of course I heard 2 is no more that 1.

    Have you tried a thunder shirt on her?

    Also, an herbal product called Rescue Remedy works well
    for some dogs, it's a spray available otc too, like Petsmart,
    Petco, etc...sending loving hugs to y'all, the puppy stage
    IS challenging but some of the worst pups change into
    awesome adults, some change for the better even sooner!

    We tried a thunder shirt, but she pouts like she is in punishment when she has it on, and rubs it against everything to try to get it off of her. I'll try that and see how it works. I'm sure it's because she's deaf that she gets so anxious and scared, hopefully she will grow out of it. She's doing A LOT better now with anxiety and spooking than she did when she was a baby, at least we're moving in the right direction.
