Allergy to Straw?

    When Patrick's Anvil was bred to Mim's Perlie (Bolio-Red Boy cross for the most part) a reversed brindle popped out. It was the first one I had ever seen. Her base coat may have been a tad lighter and her brindle stripes a little darker and with the lighter base coat looked more defined. The other pups were of normal size but she was born as big as a soup can.

    Patrick's Anvil (Patrick's Sleighton X Patrick's/Kronic's Yeska) was some sort of history re-maker. I bred him to a daughter f Patrick's Kasai and they threw a brown/white headed female with one blue eye. Like Dirty Mary recreated without Dirty Mary being in the pedigree.

    His fate was much worse than being stolen. I'm not a bad-ass guy or I'll do this or L'll do that type, but if I had caught the individual/individuals involved I may be pulling time now, not typing on a Sunday morning.

    Anvil threw the reversed brindle dogs and then had a terrible fate from a vile human being....

    sorry for the babbling as well.

    After 2 weeks of treating with Corona ointment every other day or so and removing him from the straw he looks a lot better. Hair is already growing back. This shit has worked very well for me over the years. Highly recommend it.

    A holistic pet owner turned me onto this concoction for ear issues. I have found it works for just about anything skin related

    A 12 oz. bottle of isopropyl alcohol. Two tablespoons of boric acid and 12-14 drops of genetian violet.

    The alcohol is the carrier and it rapidly evaporates. The boric acid lowers the ph to the point both fungal and bacterial infections are treated. The genetian violet serves as a topical.

    I have seen it work on ear infections, both fungal and bacterial. I seen it work on what some would call foot rot and others have used it on mange.

    It is a sort of catch all.

    The only issue is the genetain violet leave big purple stains on the dog, but the trade off is worth while.

    a lot of people can save a ton of money just using the search on game-dog.com lol... good job he looks a whole lot better
  5. correct is has to do with acidic levels in a dogs ear
    so especially after u use anti biotics in a dogs ear u need to raise the level of acidity in the ear so the normal bacteria can work again
    a true clean ear is a issue
    same with giving a worming or a long anti biotic cure make sure u raise the acidty in the stomach again
    give those natural bacteria a lil help to get to back to normal levels

    in regards to straw and saw dust , people please educate yourself those cheap straw and sawdust u buy is full of shit
    get the gigh grade the top horse people use thats step one

    Do these stains transfer to cloths or furniture?

    They do when they are first applied.
    Once dry, not that I have noticed.

    I have an English Bulldog in the house and she can catch an ear issue merely by being awake.

    This stuff outclasses any meds I have ever received from a vet for an ear issue. Most ear issues are 50/50/90 anyway. Half the time the vet prescribes for a bacterial issue and it is fungal, the other half it is fungal and they prescribe for bacterial. And with the ears, 50/50/90, 90% of the time you have to go back for the second treatments.

    This stuff lowers the ph which works well for both.

    The alcohol readily evaporates taking unwanted moisture with it an the gential violet is a pretty good topical. So much so it is the primary thing used to wipe down the astronauts as they returned from space in the 60's because we simply did not know what was out there.

    Good stuff.

  8. correct its PH level I couldn't come up with the word , sorry not a native English speaker
    I struggled with a dog for over a year , couldnt get with my regular vet in a weekend and ended up with some old farmer vet
    he just smelled the ear gave me some PH correction thing and 2 days later it was gone
    was a wise lesson

    That is true. Fungal infections smell quicker than bacterial. Bacterial infections take a little longer before they smell also.

    It would save money and time if the vets just gave out medicine for both, as most will not do any type of cultures to identify the actual issue.

    Most ear issues are multiple trips.

    I now use this stuff as the monthly ear cleaner as well. I end up with some 'purple cheek dogs' for a day or two but it has been years and years since I had an ear issue with my dogs.

    It is now a go to for my buddy with his beagles as they keep wet scraped ears on the regular.

    I'm prob wrong AGK as I'm not a expert .I was wondering if it could be harvest mites but shit it may be to cold but I'm not sure of the climate they thrive in.From what little I know they don't bother most people but some folks they attack and I think its same in animals.I'm prob wrong but just a thought.My woman's sister they will flat out attack her and she has to take a bath in some sort of solution and ive seen the photos of the bath tub of dead mites after her bath.Its crazy .You can barely see the dam things unless they lump together on the skin.

    I would think though if it was mites the other 4 out there would have them too. I used the same couple bales in all their houses. If it was just one time I could see it being possibly mites but I battle this issue with this particular male every single winter.

    The only thing I change in the environment between summer/ spring and fall/winter is the bedding.

    I never did find the other kind of grass straw near me but they've all been in my house for the last 2 weeks because of these - double digit temperatures.

    Talk about a damn pain in the ass.

    Today is the last day supposedly that we'll have these real cold temperatures. I plan on all of them getting TF out of my house by Sunday. Lol

    Except Charlie. I'll be keeping him indoors until it's warm enough outside for cedar. Don't want to have to heal him back up again. Plus, he's a real good dog in the house anyways so he isn't much of a problem.

    My dad has used Corona for horses over the years with good results. Looks like it really did the trick whatever it was. I've been battling my own unknown skin issue: spotty patches of hair loss, never really get too irritated or infected looking at all and have treated/tested for all usual things(not demodex, fungal, etc) with no luck. Some have started to ha e hair grow back, but then a few new ones appear. Aggravating as hell... KIMG2532.JPG KIMG2548.JPG KIMG2572.JPG
