    Default Abe is having a nasty bleed on his head...help please!

    Took Abe to be neutered on Tuesday. While there he got his nails trimmed and another Rabbies vaccine. He slept all day after picking him up on Tuesday.

    Wednesday eveningt I noticed some blood running down into his hair. He had a small spot at the base of his head at the top of his shoulders that was oozing some blood...by Thursday it was larger and we where keeping an eye on it. By Saturday it was the size of a 50 cent piece, raw and bloody and the blood was mating in big globs in his fur.

    This morning we put him on on a table and washed his head and neck to clean all the blood and crust out. He now has a large area that is exsposed meat and is oozing badly. I cleaned and sprayed it with Vetericyn wound and skin care...

    He will be 3 in may...eats Blue Buffalo Life protection formula lamb and brown rice recipe. He has never had allergies or hot spots. He has been a picture of perfect health.

    Is is it possible he is having a reaction from the rabbies vaccine? Is the base of the head at the shoulders where a rabbies vaccine would be given?

    Can I put peroxide on it with some gold bonds medicated powered to try and dry the wound up?

    Tgat is a hotspot.... shave the area and keep it clean use peroxide at first .... they can be from weaken immune system or stress.

    Called the Vet and our Vet is out if town till Wednesday...the nurse on the phone told me to go to Tractor Supply and pick up some powdered medicine called "Wonder dust"...get this...it's intended use is for "Horses and Show Animals"...
    ingredients are:
    Iodoform 2%
    Potassium Alum 5%
    Flowers of Sulfur 2%
    Tannic Acid 2%
    Activated Charcoal 5%
    Copper Sulfate 13%
    Hydrated Lime 71%
    Is a powder like flour that you squirt on the wound...supposed to coagulate the wound and medicate. Within seconds of applying the bleeding stopped. There was to much raised raw flesh to shave the area but hopefully it is healing....time will tell...will give an update in a few days.

    I have used Wonderdust on injuries many times over the years. It sounds to me that @HoldenIron Abe had a bad reaction to the Rabies shot,or the needle wasn't sterile.

    Yes, it sounds like reaction to Rabies shot.

    You might get a waiver from your Vet (check on State laws),
    at the very least, get your Bully titrated before each shot to
    see if he can avoid getting them based on enough immunity.

    Praying for your baby, please let us know how he is doing.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Well gang I promised to keep you updated...Abe is just about gone I'm sad to say...he hasn't eaten since Saturday night...and until this morning he wouldn't drink either, we did manage to get fluids in him after breakfast time...he crawled under the bed last night and didn't want to come out...

    so fearing the worst we had that "what if talk" with our sons this morning ages 8 and 10...after talking to the one other Vet in our area and showing pictures (Abe is to sick to travel) she agreed Abe probably had a severe reaction to the rabies vaccine..she gave us a full head muzzle and sent us home with more medicine.

    we muzzled him and was able to cut out most of the skin and fur that had turned into a nasty lesion and looked like an abcess...it was horrible to say the least. I have never seen so much puss and dead skin coming off with the fur attached...I have to admit I had to stop once and go throw up...the smell was to much....we poured almost 2 quart sized bottles of peroxide on the wound and got it cleaned up pretty good.

    His favorite things in the world is peanut butter and bacon...we tried putting his pills first in peanut butter and then rolled them in bacon but he wouldn't even eat that...I got bit trying to force them down his mouth.

    my little boys are heart broke, my dog is almost dead and I'm mad as hell at the Vet that did this....if any of you pray please pray for Abe tonight...it will be touch and go for a few days I'm afraid if we got the infection cleaned out in time.

    PLEASE bring ABE to another vet-don't just let him die! Praying that you do and praying for Abe to survive this.
