I'm hoping someone can offer some guidance here. We have a six and a 1/2 month old bullie (Sanford) who is the light of our lives. At the beginning of Sept he was treated (at the vets) for mange - they gave him a "dip" and within 4 days I noticed he was behaving differently, scooting on the floor and then he started crying (which is by far the worst sound in the world, for me anyway), additionally I noticed small red sores on his normally crystal clear face.
I immediately took him back to the vet and they diagnosed him with a bacterial skin fold infection under his tail as well as a yeast infection on the face folds, they said they were probably caused by moisture left in the skin folds from his dip. We were given a spray solution to clean around his tail twice daily and the malosep (sp?) wipes to use on his face as well as a week's worth of antibiotics.
His face has cleared up somewhat and we thought he was doing better with the tail infection, but yesterday we noticed a large amount of (for lack of a better word) "crud" under his tail again, and the area at the base of the tail appears to be stained a deep red color (he's coat is fawn colored).
I guess what I'm trying to find out is if this is normal for a bullie and if anyone has any insight as to whether we should expect it to be a recurring event etc, and if there is anything we can do to prevent it, or heal it for good.
The poor little guy is so out of sorts because of it and it breaks my heart to see him this way.
Sorry this is so long, I'm obviously a new Mom and am just at my wits end as to how to help him.
I'd post a picture so you could see how darn cute he is, but I can't see a way to do that...
