Ugh. The more I think about the spots that are healing on Baxter.... The more I think he may have a minor staph infection. It doesn't appear to be getting WORSE, but it also doesn't appear to be getting any BETTER.
Here's my dilemma: The last time I showed these to my vet, he gave us a cream to us to heal the sores, but that was it. The first time Baxter has this, we took him to a different vet because ours was closed, and he was miserable. I wanted it taken care of ASAP. They put him on Simplicef and gave us pyoben gel as a topical treatment. It cleared up VERY quickly. I let our vet know, and he didn't listen.
I am SO BAD at putting my foot down and demanding the treatment that I know will work. I go in there thinking I can do it, and then I just cave when they say they know best. Arggghhh. Why can't I find a vet with a good balance of both holistic AND conventional treatment approaches?
Do I take him to the other vet (which, unfortunately, is at the e-vet, so they want to charge an arm and a leg), or express my opinion on the phone with our regular vet and ask them to consider that route of treatment seriously? I don't want this getting any worse, and it doesn't seem to be healing on its own.
