    Default Red nipple

    Haven't been on here in a while but I'm back with a question. George has an enlarged nipple it is red and sticks out all the others are flat against his body and regular skin coloured. I can't manage to get a shot of it as he is not happy to roll over for me. I am heading to the vet tomorrow but I'm just wondering if anyone knows what this might be. Thanks in advance.

    Hey there!!! Hard to say without seeing it.... hoping it just needs a good cleaning or is scratched.

    Keep us posted, please

    I was gonna say could he have scratched it? Maybe scratch that led to small infection? I'd guess that or a bug bite maybe?....

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Can't hurt to put some Nu-Stock or Neosporin cream on it.

    will be interested to hear... Often, when we go to water areas, we come back with a nibble of some sort that just needs time to heal. Hope that's all that is with yours

    So we are back from the vet the nipple is just a skin irritation we also had the vet check his ears which were a bit crusty and he had some interdigital cysts which the vet says are all symptoms of sensitive skin he gave a shot of Dex (that's the short version of the very long medical name) I think it's a anti inflammatory so an antibiotic shot was also given. We also have a course of steroids which may need to be continued throughout his life (I'm not happy about this but if it keeps him well that's all that matters) I know my vet wouldn't recommend this unless he thought it was necessary as he isn't into over medicating and avoids it if possible.
    Thank you all so much for your support yet again in our time of need it is much appreciated always ❤️

    What food do you have your dog on? It could be environmental allergies, but it could also be partly food related. I wouldn't worry about a short course of steroids but if it's going to be long term I'd ask about getting Cytopoint injections. It's new so no long term data but so far has been considered to be the safest of all the immune supressants.
