    Poor Minnie - that looks really uncomfortable. Check Dog Food Reviews and Ratings | Dog Food Advisor for help with picking a good food. It can be hard to swallow the additional cost, but if you switch to a really good food, you're likely to spend less in vet bills. Lots of people here swear by Taste of the Wild. In fact, you may want to try a food that is grain free but is also a protein your Minnie has never eaten before. If you find some foods that look like good options, post them on the Food forum and people will weigh in to help you decide.

    I'm sorry you're having trouble. She might be on the wrong medicine. She needs to be seen by the vet ASAP....that "rash" ...infection can spread even further and become much worse!
    Talk to your vet about a payment plan.....or try care credit!

    Hopefully, your girl will be feeling much better very soon!

    Hmmm.... Do you ever wet her down to cool her off? My pug had something that looked like that before and it ended up being because moisture was trapped in her fur and wasn't drying out.... I started shaving my thick furred pug in the summer because of it!

    The antibiotics could be causing a yeast infection.Yeast does smell and itch.Giving a probiotic 2 hours after you give the antibiotic will help repopulate the good bacteria in the GIT.And help fight off yeast.Also using a immune supplement will help your pug to be able to fight off infections naturally.I use multiple things for yeast,bathing is a must in a medicated shampoo and I rinse with ACV,but I would not put ACV on your dogs sore as it will burn.Maybe a Epsom salt rinse would help.When your vet did a skin scraping did he check for yeast and bacteria?

    In my opinion, all the home remedies are good....however...as bad as that girl is...she's uncomfortable and needs a re check at the vets. Would be nice to go to a vet that practices holistic as well as reg. medicine....but they are real expensive! I've looked into it myself!

    It was my thought too that maybe this is the wrong antibiotic. That looks nasty and it probably hurts. I would see about getting back to the vet before it gets even worse.
    If you have a Costco near by go and look at their grain free food. I would get rid of the corn and by products.

    Default Yay!

    Thank you everyone for your help! I am getting her grain free food on Friday and her spot is now healing! It has scabbed over and is no longer moist or green. I have stopped getting it wet and have just been using neosporin.
