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.

When Kyra had her final vert visit a few weeks ago the vet said she had a minor skin infection and to wash her stomach with anti-bacterial soap. I've been washing her about once a day but if I'm working a 12 hour shift by the time I get home to her to wash it, it looks bad all over again..

So she gets spots that look like pimples (only 1-3), when one clears up usually a new one shows up in a different spot on her stomach. Also she has what seems to be a light line down the middle of her stomach with the tiniest black spots scattered, I'm at work and can't get a picture but has anyone else has this issue, and is there anything else that I can do to clear it up permanently?

I've had good luck using that website before. Haven't had skin infection but you may find some good remedies and tips on there if you know specifically what type it is. The fourth slide on there sounds like what you described

Haven't dealt with a skin infection but we use Vetericyn for cuts, and supposedly it also treats skin infections,fungal, ring worm, so on. Might wanna give it a look.

Edit: It's basically an Anti Infection/wound care.

Either vetricyn or Nolvasan/Chloahexidine. Both are antibacterial and anti fungal. I trust Chloahexidine more because that's what we use at work; even to sterilize patients before medical procedures and surgeries. Ive used it on kale for numerous cuts and minor skin infections. Clears it up quick. It is definitely more long lasting that Vetricyn, and I'm pretty sure it's cheaper. Check with your vet, most sell it already diluted to clients. (It comes as a concentrate)

Does Kyra lick where the infection is? That can cause it to persist. If so, she may need a cone or something similar to stop the lick till it resolves. If she isn't licking, disregard that Smile

She doesn't lick her stomach at all. It is very minor, but it won't go away completely. It seems the small pimple looking spots have subsided for now, but still has a vertical line going up the middle of tiny little scattered black spots that won't go away.

We use a little tea tree oil in our shampoo, it's supposed to be a natural antiseptic. Might be something to try that's natural.
