Hi, I'm new to the Boxer Forums, but I'm so glad I joined, I've read a lot of interesting things already. This is my first time posting and I need a little bit of help. I noticed some scabbing on the underside of Duke (my boxer) 's neck about 2 weeks ago, and at first, we had thought it was just from him roughhousing with other boxers at the park, and they would go away, and they didn't get any worse, but they weren't getting better either, so we took him to the vet 2 days ago, and the vet told us it was staph and prescribed some medication 3 times a day and instructed us to wash it twice a day with a specially medicated shampoo he gave us. He also said to try not to let the sores scab up because they need air and for the soap to get to them. However, I wash his neck in the morning before I go to work, and in the evening after he eats dinner, but while he is sleeping overnight and while we are at work, the sores get somewhat of a crusty scab over them, I don't know how I'm supposed to keep them from scabbing. If anybody has any suggestions, or has experience with this, it'd be very appreciated. Thanks!!
