Spots

I noticed a few little spots on Sasha's head the other week and didnt pay much heed to them. Now I notice that there are a lot more and are round the side of her mouth and under chin. They aren't raised, in fact you can only see them through the lie of the fur or when her head is wet. I vaguely remember my lost boxer having them, but as she was a red, they werent quite so obvious so I didnt bother.

Does anyone know of any magical cure to get rid of these unsightly blemishes, or are they just "teenage skin" and are likely to disappear over time?? She'll be one next month.

Thanks!
Karen :wave:

Dont worry Karen. It's just teenage skin. Most boxers get them. They will go away. If your really bothered about them getting infected ect. Try some tee tree iol in some warm water.

Re: Spots

hi karen
tj had these spots for about a year, they were a bit annoying for him as they would often burst if he rubbed up against something, and with boxers they usually just stick there faces into things, but he is 3 years old now and he has been spot free for about a year thankfully, so they will clear up!

Ok, I tried the T tree oil in warm water and now Sasha wont come near me when I have a cotton wool pad in my hand! She absolutely hated it and went nuts!

Any other ideas? The ones on the top of her head are fine, but the ones just under her chin keep bleeding - they dont seem to bother her, but they certainly bother me!!

Thanks
Karen :wave:

hi karen, i used to to rub savlon on Tj's spots, you can buy either the cream or the spray on stuff! the good thing with it being on her chin is that shge can't lick the cream off!! It's a wee shame for them as they look so sore, but they do dissapear eventually, honestly!:wave:

Re: Spots

Hi Karen - Molly used to suffer from them but seems to have grown out of them. Tash has a "bum chin" because she is a wee bit over enthusiastic when retrieving balls etc and usually smashes her chin into the floor in the process.

I sometimes treat her spots with TCP / Savalon if they get really bad but generally they don't seem to bother her at all.

If Mollys anything to go by they should clear up - but I do know what you mean they look really painful.

Hope this helps.

Paul

ps - good luck trying to treat her at all if she now has a phobia regarding the tea tree oil - hope it all goes well.
