Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So spent the morning at the vet with Jack, he has a bacterial staph infection, its minor and we have a bunch of meds for him. they did a skin scraping to figure out what it was. so some steroids and some meds i need to pick up still and both his ears are infected so we have ear meds to. our poor boy Sad i have been keeping an eye on his eye since thur when it started and the lip thing has been going on for a little while now but kept waiting for it to go away and he has been scratching his face more and more so i knew i had to take him in, last night his lip started to bleed. we just need to figure out if its allergies or not, if it clears up on the meds its a allergy. it all started when we switched his food to a turkey based protein, the ear infection came first then i noticed the mouth and switched him back to salmon but i was still giving him a turkey based treat and using the food scoop for the turkey for sierra and his salmon food so time to clean that all up when i get home and see if that helps as well. i just hope he can get to feeling better soon.

aw, poor Jack!
I hope it clears up with the meds and it turns out to just be an allergy to turkey (and maybe chicken?).

Has he never had turkey before? Or just in really small amounts in some treats?

With Ginger, she doesn't do well on 'processed' chicken, but will be OK if it's dehydrated or freeze dried chicken/turkey.

Feel better, Jack!

I hope it's something simple like turkey allergies and isn't anything more serious. Hopefully he feels better soon on the meds... :/

Koda is actually allergic to turkey i think also, but he didnt get a rash, he just got really really bad runs. Did jack have the runs when the food changed?koda does very well on chicken though which i think is a little werid. I hope it clears up quick and jack feels better!
