    if it is staph, Bella gets this all the time. Her Immune system is very compromised with her EPI. The vet is never concerned, just have to bathe her more often with a antimicrobial shampoo.

    At first I thought of a bug bite. Is it the only one or is there more? From what my vet has said, the staph is usually in the moist areas. (underarms, groin etc)

    Always with me

    This is really interesting and I will follow this closely not only because I am hoping Vegas is back in tip top condition in no time, but Truman just went through a bout of superficial pyoderma that is related to a weakened immune system so this seems like something I might want to keep on the lookout for.

    @sheshistory, does that spot on his leg look like what Truman had? It appeared yesterday afternoon and it is the only spot, it has not changed in size today and no more have happened, I am going to take off work early tomorrow (IF I can) my vet closes at 5, and I don't get off til almost then. It still does not bother him. Another question?? Is it possible I can get it through him? I have touched it several times to see if it hurt him (he does not even flinch) but I do wash my hands very good afterwards. As you have read he is batteling an ear infection and on mega-antibiotics right now. I have been giving him yogurt morning and night for his snack.

    My vet said to wash my hands good but not to worry about catching it from him.

    Hope Vegas is doing ok!

    When we got Penny spayed & they shaved her, the vet found a few spots like that on her belly. They aren't yellow like Vegas's, but he called it pyoderma. I asked if I needed to do anything & he said I could put a little neosporin on it. He said it was most likely from urine coming in contact with her skin where she had it. This might be a thought if it's on the inside of his leg.

    Good luck!

    @JAKEISGREAT, Did Jake have any issues on the forta flora? I am still looking for one I like. I was thinking to order the Jarro but am not sure.

    None at all! In fact I kept him on it for an extra month and I'm going to get more Tuesday when he goes to vet. The antibiotics he's on currently are very strong and when his pills stop..I'd like to have him on it to help his immune system.
