    Default My bulldog has a wound that keeps bleeding, see post For info

    My bulldog has a wound/skin blemish between his ears on his head, we noticed it a few days ago when we saw his fur was turning brown (dry blood) so we cleaned it and it didnít get any better.
    We have shaved a patch of his fur off to reveal the issue but we canít put our finger on what the hell it is! Itís a bump that keeps bleeding and I think a few more have formed around this existing bump. The smell is really bad and I canít get a clear answer as to what it actually is so all we are doing is cleaning it and applying sudo cream to it, he canít reach it himself so heís not making it any worse.
    Weíre not sure if heís hit his head or if itís a skin problem.
    I have just ordered Vetericyn Plus which will be here in 2 days, but if this doesnít sooth or heal it, what do I do next? Weíre trying to avoid vets if possible but will take him if necessary! Thankyou in advance for any advice, Iím worried about him because this is the first problem weíve had in his 2 year life!

    It’s difficult to see on that picture but he has a bump in the middle that keeps bleeding and now the skin around the bump keeps bleeding, it seems to be spreading a lot more now

    This is a better photo, I have cleaned it up and shaved a bit more as his fur was starting to Matt. I am not using any creams on it now, I am just going to use the spray I have ordered when it arrives, any more advice or if you think I should take him to the vets, please say as weíre not sure what the next step is, thankyou

    Yep, it is a hotspot. It is due to a weaken immune system most likely from and allergy. Shaving it was the best thing, now keep it clean and dry. No need for vet, but you should add a probiotic to his daily routine... sauerkraut, raw goats milk, milk keifer
    or Herbsmith micro flora are a few great options.

    Are you aware of any allergies?

    Ok Thankyou so much, is there anything I can do temporarily because heís really agitated and uncomfortable at the moment, Iím avoiding any creams (unless advised to use) or can I do anything to simply sooth the itching? Also the smell is quite bad! Is this normal? Iím cleaning it with salt water and cotton pads at the moment.

    And no I am unaware of any allergies, heís had the same diet since weíve had him, sometimes we will give him a splash of milk with his dry food and sometimes a tin of tuna (in spring water), we try to stick to a regular diet so there are no complications

    Looks like a hot spot. Castor had a bad one that we treated with chlorehexidine shampoo (Trizchlore I think it is called). Washed once a day: sponge scrub, leave on and then rinse after ten mins). Took less than a week to heal the ulcer (but longer for the fur to grow back).


    Castor is on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/castorthebulldog/

    As stated, this sure is a hot spot. Vetericyn Plus usually works. I would wash it each time, before apply more.Another product that works for hotspots, and many other wounds is NuStock, which you need to keep on hand. Keep up with the hotspot, until it is gone! Agreed-also start a probiotic for Brian. All will be well! @HWxtts

    What is the diet... especially protein. To clean use peroxide in a cotton pad. Th salt is probably irritating him and can be painful. I'm trying to remember, but I think coconut oil will help the healing process.
