Yes we did but not to the actual wound itself.

And yeah the oozing is good, it isn't constant but its a good sign I guess

I recommend seeing another vet - preferably a veterinary center or teaching hospital. They will have more knowledge on rarer issues.

I think this will have to be removed. Looks quite bad. Think he is past the point of responding topically.

Remove and shave the hair about an inch around his wound. Let it breathe and don't let hair trap moisture near the wound

I agree - do not wrap it.

Could it be a spider bite? If it is a recluse bite it may not get better on its own and will spread.
We just went through this, but our vet removed the area right away. It is nothing to mess around with.

USNEA is a tincture . Go to a well stocked health food store and ask the staff member .
http://www.urbanherbschool.ca/blog/c...ith-herbs.html

Also effective is grapefruit seed extract --- then a high lauric acid coconut oil after . There are different qualities of coconut oil, some barely having the active ingredients that you are in need of .
Help the detox process via diet. Add nettles, dandelion greens, burdock .

i would also ask the vet to surgically remove it
maybe try the laser therapy to it as well
if your vet does not do it call around to one who does

you can sit around trying herbals but this imo needs addressed surgically because there is not a lot of skin or muscle in that area
if this infection gets into the spinal cord you are going to be looking at a whole nother issue
also ask the vet to do a culture and sensitivity on this wound to determine which antibiotic would best kll the infection

What did you use? When?

You have a 5.5 month old pup. Fragile immune system, vaccines, antibiotics and pesticide use.

That's the problem.

Bovine colostrum to assist the immune system, RAW diet to avoid the plethora of toxins in the kibble (which includes the vit./min mix usually manufactured in china).

I would make a compress out of some healing herbs (tea bags) the Usnea Carmen mentioned, can use goldenseal, pau d' arco, bilberry. activated charcoal applied to bread and milk poultice wrap in plastic and secure with first aid paper tape and warp the body as you are doing now

Bath the puppy using Dawn dish soap (this is the advice from the pesticide pet product companies) to remove the inert ingredients that move the pesticide along the skin

Oh dear.

Now that I see how massive and discolored it is, I would definitely see a veterinary dermatologist. That is way beyond a little cream or a little iodine.


Where are you located?
