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.

I had my 5 year old to the vet the other day for annual checkup and this sore was found on what I would call his chin. The vet gave some antibiotic pill and said to apply Neosporin to it also. Well It has finally started to get smaller but am wondering if anyone has seen this before? Pic attached

Oh poor thing! I've never seen that before, but it looks like it must bother him =( Did the vet say what could have caused that?

It doesn't seem to bother him at all, I had no idea he had it at all. The vet wasn't all that sure as to what it was, gave some antibiotic and said to bring him back in if it doesn't get better. It has finally started to shrink down and is about half the original size now so hopefully it is going away.

Does he have a playmate? Almost looks like a bite mark that got infected, if you look right at the middle of the wound you'll see what looks like a break in the skin.

I would agree, it looks like an infection do to the skin being breached in some fashion.

Well the Vet did say it was possibly an ingrown hair but wasn't sure. He doesn't have a playmate on a regular basis, there are a couple of dogs that people walk that will stop and play from time to time but nothing rough. It looks like it is getting smaller but only 3 days worth of medicine left plus trying to put Neosporin on it also, but that is a chore. I didn't know if maybe this was one of the sores from a Zinc deficiency that I have been reading about but it doesn't look anything like the pictures of some of the sores I have seen posted. We will have to see what happens in the next couple of days.

Doesn't look like ZRD deficiency to me, at least any of the kind of spots my dog gets. They are almost always black and crusty and hardly ever swollen.
