rubbed raw

8 posts in this topic

Just got back from 2 days of hunting ditches in Iowa. My Lab's 2 front legs, on the inside part, are rub raw (about the size of a quarter), right down to the skin. What is the best way to help heal this and is there anyway to prevent it in the future.

Thanks,

BHS

This happens to my weim all the time. I've used neosporin sp? And udder balm. The best way to prevent it I have found is to by a cheap tight fitting shirt. I used a cheap knockoff of under armor warm gear. I slip that on my dog under a neoprene vest or by itself if it is really warm! Hope this helps!

Honestly, I would say the best way to prevent this is run your dog more in the off season. Not saying I do this very well either, but it is probably the best way to prevent it.

I just got back from pheasant hunting in some thick cattails, and my dogs eyes are so red, bald and swollen she can hardly open them. is time the only cure for this or is there something i can do to help her now, or better yet, prevent it?

If anyone has a way to prevent this, I'm sure there a lot of dogs that would appreciate it. My older dog has these issues after hunting. We also wash his eyes with saline and rub some antibiotic cream on the outside of his eyes where he is rubbed pretty raw.

Poor dog looks pretty homely for the week following the hunt.

I think 2dagills said it best, get your dog out more in the off season is probably the best way to prevent it

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
