|Sunflowers||I got some usnea salve from a lady in California who sells it on Etsy, and she was kind enough to include some usnea in the package.|

I was going to comment that hopefully you've laid the golden Easter egg but I thought it might read wrong ;-) I'll review the links and thank you again.
I do use the Penaten cream on Travelers elbows and lip folds but the silly boy just loves the stuff. I have to hide the tin or he's got his tongue in there while I'm working it into his elbows.

Carmen, this is the first I saw this recommendation. Thank you. Is this the same old man's beard we have down here in Florida hanging from oaks? Is it possible to buy a ready made tincture?
Traveler is currently on Missing Link, Orijen regional red, Standard Process Canine Immune System Support, and coconut oil. I'm not seeing any improvements other than seeing weight gain so I cut back and give one or two vs all in a given day.

I keep recommending a very safe (as toxic as water ! -- so not at all) remedy which doesn't sting is effective against fungal , viral and bacterial including MRSA bacterial strains -- USNEA January Medicinal Herb Tip – Usnea Lichen
you also need to treat the dog from the inside out . Bolster the immune system so that the dog can ward off infection .

|Traveler's Mom||Oh, geez, one last thing. We have Hibaclens at home for humans disinfecting our hands. It says quite clearly not to get in eyes, ears, or genital area. Hard to give a bath and not get his noogies wet.|

|Traveler's Mom||Oh, forgot to mention, Douxo sells a jar of wipes to. I give Traveler a swipe with those just on his back to remove any extra pollen in the event he does have pollen allergy.|

The shampoo specifically states to keep it out of their eyes which seems rather typical. I put cotton in Traveler's ears just to keep water out but the vet had no issues beyond that.
The vet perscribed once a week . Now, it is true as Sunflowers said, that the shampoo calls for bathing more frequently but once a week is doing the job. I did go 2 weeks and would not want to go any longer than that.
I hear about the sulfur bath but I don't know where to get the right stuff and I used to use Selsum Blue which my regular vet recommended. That was ok but drying-too drying I thought.

Ok, already been to 3 vets.
|04-18-2014 02:20 PM|
Don't think so.
I would consult a vet about what can be used around the eyes.
