Hi all,

My bully Tate has had a skin wound on his hind leg for over a year now. The vet at first treated him with a cephalosporin antibiotic (Simplicef) which seemed to "cure" it but once the regimen ended, the wound recurred. The latest vet took a smear of the wound and found that one of the bacteria is pseudomonas, somewhat hard to treat. He's now on a combo of Baytril and Clavamox. In addition, I'm doing a Hexachlor K shampoo treatments on him. I'm hoping the antibiotics will work for him, and if not, he will require a biopsy.

Have any of your bullys had a pseudomonas infection before?

Never heard of it. Several months ago Louie had a super bad skin infection that was actually turning green and stunk so bad. He was put on Prednisone and 2 weeks of Clavamox. This treatment cleared it up but did a number on his gut and the Prednisone was making him pee in the house because he couldn’t hold it.

I would definitely give NuStock a try. Couple yrs ago Jake completely ripped all of his top paw. Lawnmower n anxiety. Don’t ask….The paw never got the chance to get infected cause I used first bag balm for the first couple days then finished with NuStock. Took a good week before removing all bandages n then let it aired. Worked like a charm.

Thanks gang. The wound SEEMS to be improving. The area is very thick too, if that makes sense. I did get the Nu Stock and have applied it once already a few days ago and will do it again today .
i’m attaching a photo of what it looks like.

Poor baby, no suggestions. Just wanted to send you both a hug and prayers for a speedy recovery. I so hate when the furbabies are sick.
