    Default Brown gunk in folds

    Monty suddenly has a brown face! It's in his nose rope and the fold above that but he does not have tear stains (at least, no more than he did before). His ears have also suddenly got dark brown wax. This all happened in the 2 -3 days. I have been cleaning several times a day with Chlorhexidine Gluconate but is there anything else I should be using? His diet is the same although I did take him off Kefir last month. I have put him back on it since this started.

    I love malacetic wipes. The bullies hate them because they smell like vinegar but they keep the rolls dry and healthy. Lola used to get brown gunk sometimes. The vet said it was yeast and recommended the wipes.

    I have the same issue with Dozer and his allergies. It is caused by yeast and usually food allergies or sensitivity.

    Same here. Allergies. Here is Orion before and after. We now feed her Fromm grain free and we give her benadry twice daily. Any treats we give her are grain free.....and she loves frozen green beans as a treat. We had to put her on an antibiotic first.... she had yeast and bacteria on her face. Once we killed that...we were able to control it and prevent it from happening again with the diet above.

    That looks exactly like Monty. He has been on Acana Wild Atlantic for several months now with no problems. He has Salmon Oil in his food in the a.m and coconut oil in the evening meal. Green beans in both plus I have put him back on Kefir morning and night after this flare-up. I am waiting for Malaket wipes to be delivered and in the meantime wiping him about 3 times day with Chlorhexidine. I give him Benedryl once a day but will up that to twice a day. His treats are dried duck liver and he was on Acana Duck and Pear before without problems so I think the duck is safe. He is not licking his feet or scratching. Will give it a couple more days and if it doesn't improve will take him to the vet. He looks a mess!

    Took him to the vet today as the gunk was not clearing up. He is now on Amoxicillin. His ears are pretty good apparently, just waxy. Strange thing though, he just now stood up and pee'd on his bed. He has never done anything like that. Poor boy. I am assuming it is because of the Amoxicillin but he has only had one pill so far. I don't think I will give him another one tonight as he doesn't really seem like himself. I will call the vet again tomorrow.

    Tate's nose rope is filled with yellow-brown gunk on a regular basis lately too He's on benadryl twice daily and i just switched them to TOTW grain free. They were on Acana for awhile but i thought a change was in order since the skin issues seemed to be getting worse. I think it's this damn heat we've been suffering through in LA though.

    Acana has changed their recipes since they moved production to the US. Really p****s me off! He has been on their 'new' formula for two months now but everything has changed in it. He was on the Duck & Bartlett pear before the Pacifica fish one and did well on it. I changed to the Pacifica so I would have a back-up if necessary and it seems like maybe that is now the case but the Duck and Pear has changed somewhat too, although not as drastically as the Pacifica (now Wild Atlantic). Aarghhhh!!! I need to make a decision quickly as he is about out of food. Someone tell me what to do!!!!!

    I did give him the amoxicillin again this morning as I went back through his records and he has been on it 3 times before with no problems. I think it was my fault as I gave it to him without food (Bad Mum). He had it with his food and no problems.

    Is there one close to the duck/pear that you can switch too.... maybe the pork/squash?
