Thread: Sores around bullies mouth... HELP!

    Default Sores around bullies mouth... HELP!

    I noticed this evening some blood coming from my bulldogs mouth and started looking closer to figure out where it was coming from. I noticed a group of 3 sores on the corner of her mouth along with irriation on her chin and more sores. Does anyone have any ideas what these could be? I researched it a little online and it says possible bacterial infection but I have never seen this on her before so I am a little concerned. She has been battling an ear infection for about a month now and we are now on a second round of ear antibiotics (Mometamax) and she is on benedryl 2 tablets a day and just started omega vitamins for very dry skin.
    Let me know if anyone has any insight on what this might be ??-molly-jpg-tn-jpg

    Her chin really looks painful.... it almost looks like poison ivy ... could she have gotten into some? Or, could she be having a reaction to the mometamax and benedryl being mix?

    She is only outside for a very short period of time to do her business on a leash and we go around the same area everyday and she hasent been in anything new... The mometamax is a medicine that goes directly in her ears and the benedryl is taken orally so im not sure if there would be a reaction from the two. I am going to call the vet in the morning and see if they have any suggestions or if I need to take her in. Her chin has a tendency to be red alot but not inflammed like that. We just started the benedryl 2 times daily about a week ago but I wouldnt think that would cause it. The only new thing that has been added in the past few days in the omega vitamins. So frusterating when you dont know what it could be or whats causing it

    Does she have a really wet mouth (like can you visibly see her drooling)? Sometimes if a bulldog has a super wet mouth and tends to lay on a hard surface and drool...they can cause irritation to their mouth area. Another thing to consider is...if you have recently shampooed your carpet or used a chemical on the floor to clean or something and then she came along behinid you and laid on it...that can cause irritation as well.

    I would check with the vet though just to make sure it isn't something that needs medical treatment. Good luck with your baby!

    Ok chin bumps ear infections n dry skin are just what you said allergies. Do they have what looks like dandruff in the fur? Allergies. Either something environmental or food. Have you had your bully allergy tested? I would n are you feeding a food with grains or grain free? If I'm feeding Sarah something she is allergic to she gets red chin with bumps. Not bleeding but bumps with red. And she will keep an infection or yeast in her ears? Are they brown with gunk? Just wondering

    Do you have any malaket wipes or anything similar? Maybe try cleaning with that will help? Cutty just randomly out of nowhere had some CRAZY chin sores that were very sore looking. Came out of nowhere and I felt so bad when I noticed them. For him only thing I can think is all the chewing on the antlers he has been doing? Anyhow I cleaned with my malaket wipes and almost immediately they cleared up. havent seen them since. May not be the same issue but couldnt hurt to give it a try.

    Agree with @cali~jenn , clean the area with the malaket wipes or you can try stridex pads. It could be the acne that has gone out of control. Try drying the are whenever it looks moist. Food plays an important part also. Check your dog food for the ingridients. oh , also what type of food dish do you use???

    Oh, please let us know how you and your bully make out. My bulldog George has the same thing for about 2 months. It seemed to have started as acne. We thought from drinking the Christmas tree water but the tree is gone. Make sure you are using stainless steel bowls not plastic or aluminum. George's sores will sometimes seap a clear fluid and sometimes they bleed, especially when he is running around like crazy ...which is daily.
    Hope things work out well, please update us.

    Could it be a hotspot? since you say it is oozing... made me think that
