    I could get him on the table, but he might really freak out… Lol

    It can be taken care of, but it's reoccurring in most cases. It involved diet, meds, sometimes surgery… and constant care of the area. It's not a quick fix w/meds unfortunately…

He's usually pretty relaxed and let's me do whatever I want to him in the tub. We clean his butt after every poop but it's still nice to get in there every so often. Also, isolating him with you in the bathroom will eliminate the problem of him trying to run away or lashing out at Lily or Willow.

    Also, when hubby comes back, will he tolerate baby powder or desitin? Maybe it's itchy or burns?

    Whatever the solution, I hope you're able to find answers and a remedy for both Wally and you.
    Your suggestion is great BUT here's the problem… I'm actually allergic to dogs, and I get shots every month. They work great, the only problem is wet dog hair seems to really bother me, I guess I could put on rubber gloves. Not sure how he would react to that, but I may end up doing it. He seems fine w/powder but I haven't tried in that area yet...

    Tonight I'm going to put his in his harness and hold him w/one hand while wiping w/the other… see if he doesn't try to kill me… Lol Oh these dogs…

    oh dear, Tracey. I'm just reading this thread. I know how worrisome this is but I'm glad you left your vet a message. Would you think of getting another vet's opinion if need be? I remember when Finn hurt his hip last summer and he growled at me quite fiercely when I tried to move him. I hate to think of Wally being in pain so I'm hoping and praying for a resolution soon. Hang in there!!!

    I trust my vet's advice on this one… she didn't want to put him on steroids and wanted to give the meds a chance. I just thing it's either re-infected or something else...

    Tracey I'm so sorry to hear about Wally! I don't know if this will work or not but I figured I'd mention it anyway- when Murray had his tail pocket infection he was a bear about letting me touch it to clean it too but @TyTysmom gave me some really great advice that worked for me- treats in one hand, wipe or I actually also tried warm hand cloth in the other hand (with a glove on, in your case) and just gently see if he'll let you dab it with the warm cloth. I had to give Murray the couple treats, then have an antler or something he could chew one while I was trying to clean him up and that helped, he didn't 100% tolerate it in the beginning but it got better each time. I kept my one arm so his head was like resting on it and used my other hand to clean it. It's a challenge because they're wiggly little buggers! Please let us know how you make out and in the meantime Murray and I are sending our love, healing thoughts and prayers your way!!
