    Default Staff infection

    So we just got back from the vet and Bacon has little spots of staff infection on his back and he is getting red between his front toes. They have us sebolux medicated shampoo to use once a week for the next three weeks. Had anyone ever used this?

    I've never had that shampoo, but if it dries out the scabs, that's what you want. I'm familiar with staph infection, Jack gets it seasonally. I found that if I catch it and use Pyoben, the shampoo my vet gave me, I can keep it a bay. If I miss any spots, it goes crazy, then he's got to have lots of antibiotics.

    Okay thanks guys, the spots are not red or anything they just look like little patches of dry skin with no hair on his back so hopefully they clear up without antibiotics. He did say if his toes get worse that he will have to go on antibiotics but I was thinking of soaking his feet in a water ACV mix to help clear that up in addition to using the shampoo once a week. Do you think that would help or would it be overkill?

    It couldn't hurt, since it is a natural product. Try it and see if it helps.

    never used the shampoo.... when Nitschke had staph (a few times) they only way it was addressed is with a long, high dose of antibiotics. it is due to a weaken immune system which is what our vet said was a direct result of all his allergies he would get staph right near end of summer beginning of fall which is when his allergies were at their peak

    Yea we have a feeling that was the case with Bacon too, plus the stress of being boarded twice over the span of three weeks which we will NEVER do again. Didn't have a choice in the matter, next time we just won't go to the weddings, my little man is more important to me then anyone's wedding.

    Just seeing this....Hibicleans, hibiscrub, duoxo pads and anything else containing chlorhexidine is good for staph too x
    in fact its good for most skin infections except Pseudomonus xx

    if you do get hibicleans or hibiscrub you need to dilute it...I'm not 100% sure at the moment but I think its 1 part hibiscub to 6 parts water.
