    Default Has anyone seen this before????

    Hey everyone! You all have been so amazing anytime I've needed help with boss! I just had him at the vet because his ears were infected and also because he was taken to the dog park... Got covered in mud and had a bath when he got home and the next morning woke up with a rash on him. He was given a medicated ear wash and ointment for his ears.... Also was give an intibiotic which he is still currently taking. They said the rash was an allergy and the ears were yeast and bacteria. The rash seemed to clear up but then today (only 6 days after his vet visit) there was this on him stomach. He has been vaccinated for almost everything under the sun and is also on monthly flea and tick medsa and had a 6 month heartworm injection. Has anyone seen this?!?!? I'm starting to really worry I don't like the bright red circle and this does not look like any of the other spots

    Yes. Both mine get the exact same looking thing when they get bit by insects. It goes away in a few days.

    Could it be ringworm?

    What would be an anti fungal that I could maybe look for at home? What does ringworm actually mean to a dog? Is it fatal?

    It's a fungus on the skin from what I know IF it is ringworm. I think a vet visit might be in order to get some sort of topical cream or shampoo. They will do a skin scraping to see what it is for sure. No not fatal but it can spread from what I read.

    Sentry Anti-Bacterial Wound Cream for Dogs at PETCO We keep this on hand for Goob but I don't know if it is strong enough to kill ringworm it SAYS it is but a vet will tell you for sure

    FYI: I have never personally dealt with ringworm on dogs so someone else more knowledgeable than me might offer better info IF that's what it is.

    Ringworm is a fungus(the "man" thing called jock itch,is the same thing) I know for a fact that NuStock will get rid of ringworm,I know you all probably get tired of hearing the name, but it works for alot of things.I have used it for decades! Even told Fred Flintstone about it!!!

    Hi, I was also going to suggest it may be Ringworm. It is treatable and not fatal, but it is very contagious and can be passed to humans. The vet will be able to diagnose this and give you a cream or medication to clear it up. I stopped going to leash free parks because people don't clean up after their dogs and my guys would come home with poop on them and I would have to bath them, which got me to thinking not all, people vaccinate their dogs regularly and there can be many viruses, parasites and fleas and ticks in the park that your dog can pick up. Also every time I went I ended up having to leash my dog because all the intact males would hump Blossom or attack my Bulldozer. There are a lot of good dog owners out there, but the ones who bring aggressive dogs or unsocialized dogs make it a bad experience for the ones who are responsible owners. So I just stopped going.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
