| | probable puppy-pyoderma - See attached pic.
is that her midline, going up & down the photo - dividing it approx in half?
I'm presuming her head is above the pic, & her tail is below, yes? -
IME, it appears to be puppy-pyoderma; has she seen a vet since U got her?
Did the vet mention puppy-pyo / Was this skin condition present, at the time of the appt?
Puppy Pyoderma | Skin Infection in Puppy | petMD
Puppy-pyo is a 1st-Aid issue; use a cotton ball or 2x2 gauze - wipe her tummy where the spots are visible with H2O2
[1st-Aid strength hydrogen peroxide.] POKE A PIN-HOLE in the foil seal of the bottle, just enuf to perforate it, not to touch
the fluid level - limited surface area will keep it fresh; "drip" it out, vs touch the bottle-seal with anything, & possibly contaminate
the mother-lode. U only need to dampen them; they shouldn't drip. Dab or wipe gently, & discard; use another cotton ball /
a fresh gauze pad, & rinse - PAT with plain water, discard; lay a fresh paper-towel on the damp skin, blot it dry gently, discard.
Don't rub the skin - pat, wipe very lightly, or dab. // 2X a day should be sufficient, 8 to 12-hrs apart.
The spots should shrink in # & size after 1 day / 2 treatments; there should be a color change, too - less pink - cooler color.
Small scabs may appear on the larger spots; the skin will heal beneath them, & the scabs will flake off, after the skin is closed & dry.
If it's not markedly improved in 2-days / 4 treatments, see the vet.
[If she's already *seen* a vet while she had this condition, did the vet remark on it?
Was there a diagnosis, or suggested treatment?]
