You can get special shampoos and medications to relieve the itch. check in with your vet as factors such as indoors/outdoors, hair type, grooming or even other health issues are factors that need to be taken into consideration. if its only one or tow point on the dog then topical treatment is best, ie. clip the hair in the area, apply gels/ointment to he area (provide by vet) and bath twice daily. other treatments are antiseptics such as chlorhexidine and benzoil peroxide or antimicrobials such as bacitracin and fusidic acid. Speak to your vet as they may prescribe an antibiotic for your dog to take orally to speed healing.

Which ingredients in a shampoo should I avoid if I have chronic folliculitis?


First thing to ask is if you have had your blood sugar levels checked. Check with the doctor to see if there are any implications there.

The general wisdom seems to be to avoid cnditioning shampoos which leave a coating on the hair and scalp, and also hair gel.

How to choose healthy treats for your dog


When it comes to dog treats, it is important that you choose the right treats for you dog. You should try to avoid overly fatty treats and opt for healthier, more beneficial treats. I recommend buying low-calorie dog treats. Make it a point to check the calorie count on the packaging. You can also break larger treats down into several pieces to give to your dog at various points throughout the day.


Avoid giving your dog table scraps. Human food tends to be high in calories and fat and low in vitamins and nutrients. It is also a bad habit to get your dog into - begging at the table for food.


Look for treats made from all natural ingredients. Treats made from whole grains are great as well as treats made from a single protein such as chicken/lamb. Finally, look for treats that have oxidant rich vegetables such as spinach/beans.


Lastly, you should consider the texture of the treat itself. Although ingredients are far more important, texture can play a significant role. I recommend buying your dog harder treats. They are far more beneficial to your dogs dental health.


Here are some links for the treats we use, our dogs love them and they are very healthy -

What kind of sore do I put Foban Ointment on?


Hmmm not really for 'cars and trucks' !!!!!
Foban Ointment 2% is used as a topical treatment for bacterial skin infections, including primary skin infections like: impetigo (a contagious skin infection forming blisters or red spots), paronychia (infection of the nail fold), folliculitis (inflammation of hair follicles) and erythrasma (infection in skin folds in areas like underarms, groin and between the toes); as well as secondary skin infections like infected cuts and abrasions, eczema and contact dermatitis. Foban Ointment 2% prevents the spread of susceptible bacteria, relieving symptoms of the infection.

Do I need to buy a special kind of treat for my Maltese? She's so small and I don't want to give her something that may hurt her.


There are treats that are better to buy smaller dogs. I have a Boston terrier and also bought him small dog-specific treats. I will send you a few links; however you can also go to a local pet store and they will help you out.

My dog is overweight and I don't want to take his treats away from him entirely. Can anyone suggest some good treats for a doggie on a diet?


You should get your dog all-natural treats filled with proteins. I have located a great site about low-fat, all-natural treats for you to browse through.
