That's what I realised. I planned to take her to the vet in the morning at the time and really didn't expect to wake up to a big bald spot!!See if your vet will allow you to keep a spare tube on hand. After three instances with Max I requested a bottle of Betagen (his prescription) to begin immediate treatment as long as I brought him in right away.
With this condition, hours can matter. It can grow overnight and get HUGE. If hair is clipped early and treatment begins early, it can be contained.
The first time it happened I had no clue what it was and waited until the morning to call for an evening appointment. By the time I got Max in, his neck was covered in a raw, red, angry looking wound. I mean HIS ENTIRE NECK. I’d never heard of it and I’d never seen anything like it before. I felt so guilty.
Hope your baby continues to heal so well. It really looks good.
When did your dog start getting this? Did he always have that issue or did it crop up later on? My girl is 5 years old and never had this before. I was hoping this is just a one off, but who knows. I have a feeling the vet won't let me have extra of this cream, but it's worth asking I suppose.
