    Default Really need some help

    -imag0021-jpg


    SO we just moved into are new place about 2 weeks ago and this has been happening to poor dozer since then. Not sure what to do. They vet at pet smart gave us some wipes and fish oil pills but clearly it isnt helping at all. Any help is much appreciated.

    Is Dozer scratching, tearing, rubbing his face on the floor or grass?

    Any change in behavior?

    Any change in food? treats?

    What kind of wipes did the vet give you?

    that looks rather raw and oozy. Not sure wipes will do the trick. I'm pretty conservative on symptoms like this and would try to see the vet this weekend if at all possible. You don't want that to lead to a bad skin infection. Is that the only area where Dozer has it?

    Yes that is the only area. He doesnt scratch his face or anything like that. He does chew on his back feet some. The wipes are GlenHaven Therapeutics Gentle Cleansing Wipes that have Acetic and boric acid in them. Also we do have 3 cats but I dont think that is a cat scratch.

    We have had the wipes for about a week now and it has not gotten any better at all. And he really doesnt like them at all.

    Poor baby, looks like it's pretty sore. I wonder if he is allergic to something in the home, or outside. Our two bullies get allergies pretty bad sometimes and itch and scratch. If ever the skin has broken, we've got a Betagen spray that the vet had prescribed and it clears it up well. A friend recommended Corona Lanolin Rich Ointment for little cuts, or even neosporin. I sure hope that it clears up for your dozer soon !

    Looks like it might be turning into hot spot. Maybe look at meds

    I'd try Desitin. Usko's tear stains got really bad and raw once and I cleaned them with colloidal silver and put Desitin on them twice a day and they healed really quick.

    That does look like it might be a hotspot... in an odd area, but it could be. does it bleed or just raw skin? Since you just moved, it could just be stress related

    Aw looks sore!
    @Higgins This is kind of out there, but here is a photo from a thread I started in November. This is Wilbur, and it got to look like Dozer's pretty quickly. I got him to the vet for meds, but root cause turned out to be a food allergy. This was when I switched him to prescription vet food ( hydrolyzed proteins). It cleared up immediately and and I have had no issues since.


    i am certainly no expert....your photo just reminded me of Wilbur's issue that also seemed to come out of nowhere.
