Dog with loose skin


Dog with loose skin: The cause?

I have a dog who has an unruly, loose skin on his face. The area is in the corner of his left eye. We are currently having difficulty finding anything that would be a solution. He was given some meds to help with the swelling, but there has been no change.

Here is a picture of the area. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My question is, what would be the best way to treat this? Is there anything avlable that would work?

He also has a bad itchy, rash type area around his rear end, but it doesn't seem to be as bad as the eye area. The skin is red and looks infected. I'm not sure if that would affect the treatment of the eye area or not.

When your dog gets the itchy, red rash, it may be a case of the body fighting off an infection. You can buy some anti-biotic suppliments at a pharmacy. Or you can buy some over the counter, but they are not usually the best. You should use anti-biotic suppliments that are good for both dogs and humans. The pharmacist can guide you.

I just came across this thread. This is so sad! This is such a cute dog with a cute problem.

I did a quick search and came across this forum with some possible treatments, but wanted to share some more possible things.

You may try to find some ointment or lotion to put on the spot. It might have to be repeated if it doesnt work.

It may also be possible to get an ultrasound, which is done with a machine that looks like a giant TV with a wand. This machine is called an echo machine.

I don't know much about the machine, but if it is avlable, it may be possible to get this ultrasound done, and it would look at the skin.

There are also many kinds of steroids that you can use. The pharmacist may have some kind that you can buy at your local pharmacy. There are other kinds that you can buy over the counter as well, but they are more expensive.

You may be able to find some of these things at your local animal hospital. If not, you can go online, to sites like www.cvs.com and other online pet supply stores to look for these things.

Agn, sorry to hear about this. If this happens to your dog agn, please let me know, and I will keep looking for answers!

That is really interesting. We will go back to the vet about this and see what they say.

The most important consideration is the size of the problem. If the eye is so inflamed it can't be touched then it is best to leave it alone.

If there is enough skin for a bandage, and the eye can be covered and still see, a bandage can be applied for a couple of days until the eye can be seen and cleaned.

The dog will need to eat and drink to stay hydrated, and should be monitored to make sure he doesn't become dehydrated or eat something that he shouldn't.

If you're going to use a steroid, you'll need to use it for several days in a row to make sure the swelling is controlled.

You could also apply hydrocortisone ointment on the spot for a couple of days.

But be sure to tell your vet you plan on using steroids so they know to watch for any side effects. If the problem continues, the steroids may have to be reduced or stopped.

Hope the vet can help. Best wishes!
