|Hi guys. Well, I'be been having troubles with Ralph for awhile now. Hes had a lot of skin issues and eye issues since May and they're not getting better. My main concern is one that I"ve voiced to several vets and all have brushed me off saying its nothing.
I'm pretty sure Ralph has skin fold pyoderma. His wrinkle under his eye is obviously sore, its inflammed, crusty and musty smelling. The vets keep saying to just wipe it clean with water and dry it, but its NOT working. Hes rubbing his eye constantly and its heart breaking to watch him suffer.
I have used boric acid wipes as mentioned by vets and other pug owners here, but it seems to irritate the skin. I have used a weak peroxide solution, which appeared to work, but when I mentioned that to his eye specialist (for a seperate matter) she freaked at me and told me to stop. This was the only thing keeping the inflammation away!
Now when doing a google search, the course of treatment for this is an oral antibiotic AND a peroxide shampoo!
Has anyone encountered this problem and if so, whats the course of action?
