  1. He's been wearing a lamp shade and tolerating it well. He's still on his antibiotic. It still looks the same. The sore on the other leg looks better. Dried up somewhat. I have been putting the chlorhexidine on it several times a day and just letting dry. No bandages. If it's not better by next week I plan on taking him to my regular vet. I wasn't too impressed by the ER vet.
  2. Thanks so much for this info. I appreciate it.
  3. We've had a lot of snow here. It's mostly powdery.....some ice underneath. I hadn't thought of that. It might be possible. Hmmmm
  4. I don't think it's a bug bite. But who knows. Just odd it's in 2 places.
  5. HIs bed is in front of the fireplace, but I've never seen him whack it before. Just so weird.
  6. I still have no clue what it is. He developed the same exact sore on his other rear leg in the same location. Odd. They never told me if it's bacterial or fungus. He's been wearing his lamp shade well. He's still taking his antibiotics. He seems to feel better today. The sore still looks the same. When I go to put chlorhexidine on it and pat it dry there is some blood. It does not seem to bother him if you fool with it. Could it be dry skin? Just weird that he could get the same thing on the other leg. Maybe it's the way he sleeps on the floor. Those 2 legs rub together at that point.
  7. I'm sorry I haven't replied to anyone yet. I've been super busy.
  8. I agree. It's so odd that it's in the same spot on both legs. Could it possibly be from his laziness of sleeping all day? His legs rubbing together in the same spot. I can't seem to attach a picture. All of them are too large.
  9. HI all, I'm new here. I have a hound named Dakota. He's 9 years old. A few days ago we noticed an open sore on one of his back legs. I could not get in to see my family vet due to bad weather. I took him to the ER vet. They cleaned up the wound, gave him antibiotics and a cone and said all would be okay. Well, just now I saw another open wound on his other leg in the same spot. Odd. He doesn't seem to feel very well. I can't get back to the regular vet due to the weather. Plus, he's not open. I've been putting chlorhexidine on the wounds. He is wearing the cone. If it's not on then he's licking on the sores. I can't figure out what it is or what brought it on. I think he might be in pain. He's just sleeping all day...not frisky. Not wanting to do his usual stuff. Does anyone have an idea what it could be? I can't get a picture to load. It keeps stating the picture is too large.
