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?

Flush with sterile saline when you get home from the days hunt.

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

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
