Seriously have to consider if this can happen on the outside of your dog, what is happening on the inside???

Is there a web reference for the photo?

I saw that on fb too...wonder why it was in two different spots and how long it took to get that bad?

msvette2u 11-08-2012 08:27 PM

Yeah...there's so many photos floating around the 'net, I'd want the back story on that one.

Did you get through Dogs Naturally? Greyhound link?

My neighbour has a mutt, she couldn't tell me what was used as her roomate does treatment, but I suspect from the pet store. Anyhow, this dog was going nuts scratching at her neck and leaning into my leg begging me to scratch her spine at base of tail....apparently the spot on requires shoulder blades and tail base...poor dog was miserable and this was after it had been on for a week. Her owner said this happens every time..So I asked, she is having a reaction, Why are you using it?...er, uh...IDK...they don't go anywhere, they walk around a parking lot 3-4x a day:mad:

I always hear of these stories but have never had issues with any of the spot-ons I've used :shrug: The worst thing I have an issue with is the smell and it goes away after the 1st day.
Luckily our area is fairly flea-free and ticks are only a concern near water or in the woods.

I saw it on this: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Greyh...s/345821701457

There was a post on the picture with this link, so it obviously isn't a one time thing: http://www.1800petmeds.com/Certifect...prod11230.html

I had the EXACT same thing happen to my last dog Abby ... I put the liquid revolution on her neck and within seconds she was screaming in pain and freaking out ... called the vet ... oh, yeah, that happens sometimes WHAT??????

It took almost 2 months for the gaping wound to heal properly and for her fur to grow back.

Never used anything like that since - I'll stick the holistic methods that have worked best for me over the last 7 years

Gaping wound...?
How'd you get it off? How long was it on there??

Kyleigh 11-08-2012 08:48 PM

It literally BURNED her skin ... I treated it like you would a burn - polysporin, had to shave the whole area around the wound, put gauze over it for a couple of days, keep it clean, etc. Thankfully she couldn't lick it because it was on the back of her neck.

It took amout 4-6 weeks to heal completely and another two for the fur to start growing back
