I’m new to this and I know there are other threads but I didn’t want this to get buried. I didn’t see a >1 year pup health section- sorry if I missed it.
So, after becoming Web-Vet in the last two days I’ve come to the conclusion that my boy has Juvenile Pyoderma, but we are taking him to the vets tomorrow since I am usually wrong. I just wanted to see what everyone’s opinion is, I’ll like a YouTube Vid and post some stills. He is an English Cream and his skin, including his fat belly and groin are darker than most pictures I’ve found to compare. Also, anyone who has had this come back- any tips on prevention?
Basically it seems like the vaccination has been the biggest culprit in a lot of the JP cases. I read it somewhere else, it made sense so I’m preaching it like it was my idea. The puppy’s immune system, under developed as it is at their age gets occupied with the undertaking of recognizing and developing an immunity to rabies or more, therefore bacterial infections are primed to take hold. I’ll link first the forum thread that I hopefully understood all of this from, and a vet who offered the explanation plainly, and suggested holistic alternatives- which I’m undecided on, not even on the fence yet. But it’s interested. Second will be my YouTube link to a quick video of Ghost’s troubles. I’ll post some stills for anyone who doesn’t want to watch the 30 second clip.
Thanks in advance everyone. Can’t wait until i have time tomorrow to explore the forum
••edit•• just found out after linking both- no linking allowed on first post. I’ll do it in the reply if possible
