Need Advice about Josie Wales

Josie had these places on her in Feb. I took her to the vet and she ended up staying two weeks and came home with a collar and predizone and another spray. He told me to keep the collar on until we ran out of medicine. Well I ran out of meds, but she still had a scab or two and I left it on for another two or three days. then the first of the week, she was sitting in the window when I got up without her collar. She had manage to get it off. It was Mama, I need to go out. I agreed and turned her loose. She only comes back in to eat and I sprayed her every time I got my hands on her. Well look at her now. It is as bad as ever. And she feels bad, just laid on the screened deck all day and didn't give me any trouble about the pictures. We are going to a new vet tomorrow. DH has promised that he will take us as soon as they open. Most of the sores between her legs, one bad one is under her arm. Anyone ever seen anything like this?

Gosh Lucile, those sores look nasty. A second vet never hurts. Hope you find out more.

DH was going to take her to the vet Sat morning but couldn't find her. She does love the new grass and all the insects and voles. But when she came in this morning, she laid on the chaise lounge on the screened deck all day and let me pick her up and put med on her. It looks like when a child skins their knees--just that deep. But that sandpaper tongue takes off anothe layer of skin.I don't believe it is an allergy, the sores are in the same place. It is more like an acid burn or something.

Poor baby, so this is the second flare up and it started in February did the vet have any idea what it could be? Its not ring worm is it? could you put a onesie on her so she wont lick it?

Have the vet take a culture to determine if its a bacteriel infection or parasite. Might be staph, my Eskie and one of my Havies, developed that. The Eskies was on the skin.
So sorry for your dilemma! Keep us posted.

Did she have exposure to fertilizer?

I agree that if I saw this on a human, I'd say "Ringworm, for sure". It looks very sore. Good luck to you, both!

Gosh, those sores look painful! So sorry! Please keep us as closely posted as you can! Seems to me new vet might be a really good idea; glad you're doing that.

Watching and cheering you and Josie on!
