    Default Duke arrived! Need some help

    Duke arrived he is going to the vet tonight. He has a mark in his ear. He was cleared by the hungarian vet on Tuesday with a clean bill of health. He might have mange. Could this have developed due to the stress of a 2 day travel? Ill post a pic.-image-jpg

    Is it contagious? I won't be able to take him to vet till 7pm? Is it hard to get rid of?

    not contagious, can be hard to treat, must get immune system back up. I see a spot on his head too, he may have had it for quite a while

    Yes, stress can bring it on, but it looks like he has had it for a little while. He needs some antibiotics to get rid of it. Give some yogurt, and get some NuVet Plus to help build his immune system. I wouldn't let the vet do the dip on him, it's hard on them. Get his immune system built up and the antibiotics will get it under control.

    Well I'm at the vet, they say he's healthy, it's not mange, says its an ear infection, and the scabbing is from him scratching at his ears. I'm going to follow up with my bulldog vet next week. But I'm releived it's not mange.

    Glad to hear its not mange, and an infection that can be treated with antibiotics. You can also put Polysporin ointment directly on his ear to help heal it, and to soften the scab. Adding yogurt to his food, and apple cider vinegar to his drinking water will help boost his immune system as well. Congratulations on your new baby, and looking forward to seeing pictures of him.
