Dog with Blood Filled Zits That Pop Open
Blood filled zits (red bumps) after cleaning
I have a Dogo Argentino and about 4 days ago I noticed some bumps on his back and thought it was bugs or something minor. Sunday noticed blood spotting on his coat where some of the bumps were.
Did a medicated bath. Monday noticed they were not getting better and gave him a Epson salts w/lavender soak. That normally relieves minor skin issues.
Talked to my vet figured it was an allergy to new food with some staph infection put him on TMZ and a shot of DEX. Today it is horrible!! Like blood filled zits popping open all over his back. Immediately went to vet. They have not seen anything like this.
So we shaved the skin, did skin scrape sending it to the lab. He is On 2 different antibiotics “2 different shots” - one is for 4 days max and the other is penicillin.
Keep it clean and put Silva dine salve. We are treating it as if it were MRSA Until we get labs back. I will be going nuts waiting - these are my kids!
Have you seen anything like this? Please anything I can do to help would be great.
Also giving plain yogurt, organic coconut oil in his food. And a small splash of apple cider vinegar in their water bucket. I like natural whenever possible. I worry about all the strong meds.
In the pics you can not see because it has been cleaned but each or the red bumps are like blood filled zits and they just pop open.
A very worried mom
