    I was just reading that pumpkin makes poop taste bad to dogs and to use it as a remedy to get poop eating dogs to stop eating their poop. Wondering if it is true now?

    Doesn't work for Wilson or Sally. Wilson back in the day would still eat Ace's poop. Sally tried to eat her first poo yesterday morning - she had pumpkin the night before.

    How long do you do the soak with Epsom salt and how much? I did it again tonight and used about 1/2 plus of epsom and a 1/2 gal or so of water followed up with a good rinse and then washed with the hibeclen solution with a good rinse after. She's a champ, just let me do what I need to do.

    I squeezed it in the warm water and some nice white stuff came out.

    Keep using the hibiclens until it is gone it is an antiseptic that will help keep it from getting infected. Glad you got stuff out of it! That will make it feel better.

    hi..i've posted this once before...but here it is again.....
    A Bulldog's nails must be kept short. A Bulldog's feet carry a lot of weight and long toenails can cause foot distortion, put stress on his joints, and may contribute to inter-digital cysts. Don't overlook the dewclaws. Teach your Bulldog to accept nail trimming from puppyhood. Take it slow and gentle so you don't "quick" him. You may use dog nail clippers, followed up with a grinder (such as a Dremil), or just a grinder if you are good about keeping the nails short. attaching the link from one of the sites I found this info....hope it's okay to put it here !Bulldog Basics: An Introduction to the Breed : BCNC

    I should have kept using it. Over the weekend it really healed up. It went down and then scabbed over. Last night it exploded. I got a lot of stuff out but mainly just blood this time. It was like a big bubble. Here's tonight's pic after treatment last night and tonight.

    Christy, do I treat her twice a day with the Epsom, Hibeclen and then with her Mupirocin? How much epsom salt? I'm using a cup right now for about a gal of water.

    Oh I also trimmed the fur around it tonight too.

    OUCH!!!!!!
    Poor Sally - Jeannie that is what Nitschke's would look like. I consistently treated till it was gone. But, he never truly got rid of them till we identified the rice allergy. Then he never got another one,.

    She's a trooper that's for sure. She lets me do what I have to do to get it cleaned. I'll keep doing a twice a day cleaning until it's 100% gone this time. Canned food has stopped but she did go on Earthborn Meadows Feast for a few days and that's when it cleared up. She's been back on the Fromm since Tuesday. I need to compare those ingredients I think.

    It looks really healthy. No signs of infection, very clean and healing. Desertskybulldogs is the one who recommended the epsom salt so I don't know what mix she uses. It can take weeks to heal unfortunately. I would stick with the twice a day soak and even get a third in on the weekends if you can. I think everything you are doing is just right.

She gets a couple tablespoons mixed in her food morning night. Wonder if that's it? We had her 8 weeks plus now so I'm thinking it's it.

    Mabel's vet suggested putting Listerine (the old yellow variety) in a spray bottle and spraying them with it. He said that it will keep her from licking her paws (bad taste) as well as kill the bacteria that can cause these. When all else fails, I have a limitless number of refills of cephalexin that takes care of them. He also said we can use Malaket wipes on them.

    Christy, I just took this pic. It's down and looking better. I just cleaned it an hour ago. Earlier today it was dry and white. It gets red like this though after it's been cleaned. Some puss came out this evening too.
