    Thank you all for the support! It is very disturbing to see that huge spot on that mans head! Eww! I hate seeing Douglas go through this, but he is a tiger and will get through this! Yes, every doctor was very apologetic, but I agree, unprofessional to jump the gun with lymphoma! Ugh- it went untreated for so long I guess which is why it looks like a tumor!! Thanks again.
    Ps -- being very careful around him!!

    Hello. I have a male English bulldog. I recently took him to the vet because he has a raised bump on his paw. They wouldn't take ringworm into consideration or test it at all for that matter. The next day I noticed a flat circular bald spot under his arm. I took him back in and demanded both be tested and anti fungle medication. Did the bumps leak clear fluid in the healing process? Also what antifugal meds did they put Douglas on?

    I have never seen any leakage for ringworm. It's more like a circular rash.

    You're going to have to wash environment and dog for 8-16 weeks, and possible oral therapy:
    Environmental: Wash environment with bleach diluted 1:100 if possible- preferably limit dog to area of house you can bleach such as tiled area
    Topical: Wash dog twice weekly with Ketohex or Malaseb or Curaseb shampoo (containing ketoconazole or miconazole)
    Oral: Itraconazole 5-10 mg/kg once daily for 7 days, stop for 7 days, treat for 7 days,stop for 7 days, then last 7 day treatment OR:
    Terbinafine 30 mg/kg once daily for 4 weeks

    Top looks like interdigital cyst... epsom salts soaks help clear those, but they are usually due to an allergy... environmental or food . Wipes paws when coming in from outside

    Can also try lufenuron 80-100mg/kg every 2 weeks as a supplement treatment. It's normally used for fleas (Program,Sentinel) at a lower dose. You can buy lufenuron generic in 410 mg capsules. I wouldn't personally try this over itraconazole or terbinefine if you have to give meds orally.
