Help please rescue dog.
 
So I just rescued another dog from a crappy situation and he has what I was told is heat rash/hot spot all over his back end. I've never actually had a dog with heat rash so I'm not sure what it looks like but his hair is growing back really well. He was tied to a tree in a house and left to starve to death by the room mate of the girl that gave him to me. He's a Bull Terrier and the breeder of him is trying to get me his AKC papers. Poor guy is so frikken cute. Pictures soon.

major props for rescuing! you really are making a difference.
heat rash can be alot of things. but a bath with mild soap would be a good starting point. preferably fragrance free. rinse super good.
follow with cold compress (not too cold). and considering the time of year, try to keep him in the shade and AC if you can.
a very small amount of aloe vera might be helpful. he will try to lick it off and that could make her sick. so i would only use it if you have a cone (which you probably do since you rescue on the regular).

Yea he's getting ready to hit the bath right now. So the full story now that I have a second to type.... I guess this girl shared a house with her husband and a room mate. They got their own property and moved out. The owner of the dog ended up moving to an apartment that couldn't take dogs so he tied the dog to a tree in the backyard and moved out. Never told his landlord or anything. When she got there the dog was emaciated and had almost no hair on his back end. She took the dog to the vet and the vet said it was hot spots and she has been treating it with NuStock (I'm gonna get some but I have to order it online and I didn't want him to have to wait if there was another remedy) his hair is growing back pretty well considering what she said he looked like and he has put on weight and looks fine. His coat is nice and shiny and she got him his shots. She was planning on keeping him but her Great Dane attacked him so he had to go. Poor dude has scars and little bite wounds all over besides the fact that his back end looks awful. He is such a cute dog too I can't imagine and she was told by the breeder that he gave $2,000 for the dog. The breeder wanted my phone number so she could get ahold of me for papers and to see how the dog was doing. I just don't get why somebody would just dump. He could've frikken died??

Is she itching the spots? Our pug got hot spots bad every year. You can put cortisone cream on her to help relieve itching. Can't wait to see pictures!

you can get your vet to give him a shot for 'hot spots'
the only thing in the shot is peanut oil and vitamin b,
but it does work,
plus if you could've give him a bath with oringal head and shoulders shampoo

that would've felt good to her

I didn't know about head and shoulders :/ I used hypoallergenic tear free Johnson's baby soap. I figured it was about as gentle as I could get.

Hey have soothing sprays at walmart that will hold you over til the nustock comes in. I always wanted a bull terrier.

Princesspaola21 08-20-2013 01:09 AM

Thanks for all the help!! I've always wanted a Bull Terrier too lol. He's got such a great temperament especially for what he's been through. I can't imagine somebody just abandoning him. So sad!

I have always wanted one as well! How does he get along with the others?

surfer 08-20-2013 01:12 AM

there is some medication in the head & shoulders thats good for the skin or the other dandruff shampoo in the blue bottle, i forgot the name, begins with a d.

and actually i dont know if i noticed this this right, it looked like he had bare spots on his haunches, not saying it is, but that could be a vitamin deficency, and just getting him on a good regular diet may fix any problems

Yea the spots aren't as bare as they look actually there is hair definitely growing back there but yes he has several patches like that :/ poor dude.
