    this would be a good opportunity to educate us on Pyoderma  ;D  How far is the bacteria into her skin i.e. what strain does she have.  Is she getting treated for fleas also – pyoderma usually a secondary factor – i.e. the symptom rather than the cause.  If you dont treat the real issue it will keep reoccuring

    I love the witchywoo woo title  😉

    ok sorry sorry sorry…we fell fast asleep  :-[

    vet says it’s superficial pyoderma probably caused by the heat and the fact that she’s swimming so much. Recommended no swimming and a course of anti-b’s – novolexin to be precise.

    It initially broke out under her front legs, in her armpits…spotty, bumpy, slightly pussy and red….followed by some hair loss in the affected area and a drying up of the spots leading to a crusty skin……has spread to between her back legs as well now

    this is what it looks like

    also, I thought withchywoo just referred to “natural remedies” not to a specific person  :-[

    more info;

    it’s definitely bothering her but as I’ve said before she’s a very stoic girl and isn’t prone to obsessive scratching or chewing

    thing is she’s also fighting the coccidia right now which is either the reason that she got the pyoderma or the pyoderma is the reason she got the coccidia  :-\  whatever her immune system is definitely down

    mudgie, why do you say liver? she’s been having liver for treats the last couple of weeks and liver ‘juice’ (the water that the liver was boiled in) on her food also

    she doesn’t have fleas and is on Revolution once a month for fleas, ticks mites heartworm

    vet said to me, it’s nice to see a dog that is allowed to be a dog  ::) — easy for her to say

    I told the vet that I was concerned about giving Anti B’s because her system is down already and wouldn’t they hurt the situation? She said the thing to do was to get rid of the pyo first through a 2 week course of antibiotics, then reevaluate    –I said I’d get back to her

    that’s about all I can think of and i know you’ve probably gone to bed

    did the vet consider that the revolution treatment maybe knocking the immune system…has a thyroid check been suggested?

    sodium bicarb and borax mixed to a paste with hydro.peroxide is what i used on Zak dog…he had it real bad bless him

    no mention of the revolution as a cause and no mention of thyroid tests

    “sodium bicarb and borax mixed to a paste with hydro.peroxide ”  that sounds painful!  Isn’t borax bleach?    so the idea is to keep it as sterile and dry as possible ? with the borax and the hydro actually killing the bugs?

    Interesting you should say this Bev as thats not far off the mix for the ear cleaner which I am sure would work.
    I would say benzoyl peroxide shampoo twice weekly, and then appling a Benzoyl Peroxide gel daily.
    And get that immune boosted.
    Have only just got back from Bounemouth am now off to my neighbours to celebrate his 95th birthday won’t be that long then I will sort out some remedies

    Thanks Bev and Val.

    Went out today and bought Vit E, Selenium and Hydro Peroxide spray.  I already have Apple cider Vinegar , St. Johns Wort and Cod liver oil

    How much should I give her? The Sel tablets are 250mcg, the Vit E capsules are 400iu…Sadie is now 25 kgs (the little tubby)    It’s very easy to give her pills as she eats them with her food without really noticing.

    I take it Benzoyl Peroxide is different than Hydro Peroxide?  :-[

    I emailed Sadies breeder and she said she’s never had any skin conditions with any of her Blues or Red and Whites , uses no flea or tick control and only vaccinates for rabies…but her dogs don’t live like Sadie does. She also feeds raw and asked about her diet.

    *sigh* sometimes it all seems like there’s too much to learn  🙁
