Other than the gorp on the can of Gunk (not set up, what a hoot), here's the deal. The gorp had a bunch of stuff that looked like raw bacon strips. Where the heck did that come from?? Bubba hasn't been out of the fence line for a week. No carcasses of something he took down. It's a mystery.

Anyway, he has a bacterial infection on the skin at his frond elbow and rear knee. He's apparently a sensitive guy all of a sudden. Hah! He's a darn tank on four legs.

Glad you clarified. Thought it was your pug.

Is your LGD better?

My guardians HATE the car/truck with all their hearts. Have to give them benadryl to get them in. Should probably tape a barf bag to their heads...
It'll take a while for the meds to do their work. There is nothing that we can determine is the cause. The outcome is a bacterial infection and the cause is from abrasion. The abrasion is the curious part. Its only on the left legs and at the 'elbow' joints. Only Bubba has this, his sisters are fine. These dogs are exceptionally clean and spend a lot of time grooming themselves. And they really enjoy their winter snow baths.. I just didn't want this to get worse and because these breakouts are on the joints and fairly swollen, the last thing I want is some permanent damaged. Bubba is very valuable to us as I'm sure many of you can relate.
