Our little Marcus is now currently sick! He's having this skin rashes and infection all over his face. I think it's quite itchy as we would sometime wake up in the morning seeing him with blood all over his face. We already brought him to his Vet for consultation and was prescribed with the proper antibiotics , however, he already had consumed few bottles and the infection seems to be recurring from time to time. Poor Marcus! We cannot bring him out of the house for a walk as we do not want his face to be exposed to dust and bacteria as it may just aggravate his worsening condition. Aside from the regular dose of medicine, his wounds are being cleaned and sanitized and sometimes covered with gauze pad to prevent him from scratching his wound.
I'm wondering what may have triggered his skin infection. Is it the shampoo that he's using? I would admit, we sometimes use Sunsilk, Palmolive or Cream Silk whenever we bathe him especially when he ran out of his dog shampoo and come to think of it, man's shampoo smells better and we love him smelling fresh and clean all day. We cuddle him and hug him sometimes, so it is essential for him to be totally clean and smelling good. As I browse online, I came across this site, http://www.entirelypets.com/duoxomain.html and they have this special line of shampoo and hair care products for our beloved pets. Not only that, they also have these amazing pet home essentials, toys and pet food and treats. Our dog's Vet advised us to be very particular about the product we use in bathing our Marcus as this can also cause his infection.
Right now, he's still recuperating from his illness and hopefully, he'll get better soon. We can't wait to bring him to our next weekend swimming get away.
