Ashley, I just didn't want to scare you. MRSA can be hard to deal with, but if you can get a handle on it early then it helps.

I hope they culture at least and just don't throw Meds at the problem.

I know you will keep us updated on Mason.

Oh no! I'm so sorry. This time of year is so tough for him :-(

Glad that tomorrow is Monday, and yes, sure hope that they can culture something.

hugging I know how frustrating and difficult this is, let us know what the vet says!

GSDTrain—I’m so sorry to read about Mason and can completely relate. frown. I wish I had the magic cure for your Mason and my boy too.

Derma Paw—Link: We are using this product for that exact reason and it helped, it really helped. We apply it every other night before bed and put the socks on with it, they don’t stay on long, but enough.

I had received great advice here, and they are working ie, Only Natural Pet Immune Balance, T-shirt, socks, scarf, etc.

I hope that your vet will help & do the biopsy/culture like suggested.

Good luck and hugs to you both.

PS—DH wanted me to add that the Temaril-P did help him and it did, but I’d add that he was really tired, not himself and did vomit a few times on it. It is a combination of Prednisolone and an anti-itch.

Ooh, this definitely sounds like a staph infection to me. Similar to what happened to Elsa with the "scratch/bite/wound" getting bigger and bigger. The lump is what happens to my friend whenever she gets a flare up.

Hopefully it if that is what it is then it's as easy to treat on him as it was on Elsa. Easy 2 weeks of antibiotics and she was good to go.

Had the vet appt this morning!
Vet did a culture, and it is a staph infection, so he is on abx for 2 weeks, as well as panalog cream to apply to the affected areas.
Vet offered TP, but I told her that I would wait on that, and continue with the benadryl for now.

And I haven't put a t-shirt on him like usual because it is so warm here and he would be burning up if I put one on him.
And the ONP stuff doesn't work for him.

Just updating,

Mason's staph infection cleared up nicely. He finished his abx last week.
No other issues. He is doing really well.

Those dang spiders!!!

Knock on wood, no itchies!! smile Nice soft, silky coat. And the hair he lost in the hot spot area has grown back really fast.

We are back on track! smile
