    Default Black spot forming around puppies area

    So charlie has this thing forming around her area, We clean her very well and try and keep her dry. We have shown this to the vet but he says it nothing to worry about just yet and to wait to see if it goes away if not he will give her some more powerful medication for what he believes it to be bacterial. She is already on a spray but it doesnt really seem to do much. Has anyone with a female puppy seen this? Could this be a food alergy?

    I have no idea what that could be, if I had to guess it looks like an infection, but since your vet said its nothing to worry about, he's the expert , so we have to trust, but if it doesn't go away, then I would take her back.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Grace my female Staffordshire bull terrier gets black stuff around hers to all the time I just wash it really well with a baby wipe with apple cider vinegar on it an it comes off good but you have to really get in there its kinda gross but I'd rather it be clean then look like that she has a little now but she hates when I do it so there's no way I could get a picture she will not roll on her back inside she was abused before we got her but outside is another story she loves rolling around on her back but enough about me. I wouldn't worry about it just wash it really well with the ACV an it should go away.

    Well, I'm sorry to disagree, but your Vet may be an ignorant a**. Bacterial infections are no joke
    and can get out of hand quickly. I'd find a GOOD Bully knowledgeable Vet for a 2nd opinion.

    Let us know, will keep y'all in prayer.

    @cowsmom -- Tagging my best bud. She knows everything.

    Anything that CAN wash off -- should be. I'd get down there and scrub the dickens out of that area. I tend to agree with Carol also. You need a new vet.

    i honestly dont know what that is but id be putting something on it for sure. do you have duoxo pads or hibiclenz they are really good for bacteria and such. hibiclenz can be gotten at the drug store or grocery store in the bandaid section. at the very least if be putting some peroxide or maybe some neosporin on it. i agree bacteria is nothing to fool with either. if it doesnt wash off with the hibiclenz then id think about a new vet to.

    OH MY.... I'd be looking for a new vet without a doubt, if it is bacterial it needs to be addressed and not waiting 'to see'

    That does not look good to me!!! Like cowsmom said a good antibacterial soap like hybiclens and that looks snotty too.... If it's fungal and not bacterial you will need something else, however.

    I should have clarified the spray he gave us was to kill the bacteria from the outside rather then give a puppy a pill which could give her a upset stomach, if that spray didnt work then he would have given her the pill.

    LOL...okay then, guess we'll hold off shooting him for now although I agree with @desertskybulldogs it could be fungal.
    Keep us informed, best of luck w/Charlie!
