Both dogs have it. This raised angry looking area. Pepper's is much more mild, more the size of a pea. But VIctor's is enormous, and raised up a full quarter inch. IT drains in some areas..a bloody serum. HE has been on clyndimiacin for a week now and i can't see any improvement. In fact it looks worse. THe vet said it would clear right up but it hasnt and the one on his chin looks just as bad. I found two more spots on his body. I am so worried. I applied a warm washcloth for a heat treatment since the alcohol isn't making any difference either. I pray to God it is not staph but i got a sick feeling it could be. Will be going back to the vet monday morning. I looked up what the vet said he had..a dog acne but it says it is a young dog problem and he is 5 and Pepper is 2. Whatever it is they got it out of the soil and they got it at the same time. Those of you with digging dogs is this something you know about? WHat could I do at home to help him get over it? I am not finding much on the net.
