Re: [jacksontan] PUG - SKIN PROBLEMS - PLS ADVISE
[In reply to]
most of the time, missing hair on elbows is because the dog is sleeping on cement or hard surface floor for a long period of time... is this the case for ur pug? if so, not to worry, there's a simple remedy for the hair to grow back - cut a handful of bayam (leaves n stems) very finely, boil in water with honey n olive oil, leave it to cold, n serve bayam with soup to ur pug, give this daily for a week or two, then twice weekly, u'll see results in 2 weeks - i've tried it with my pug n a rescued pug, the bayam works in making the hair grow back, but not as treatment for any skin problem...
as for the pustules, do get a vet to check it out to determine wat sort of skin problem it is...
i'm not sure if eukanuba is the best food to give a pug with skin problem, but if ur pug has no problem with the food then it's ok to stick with it... otherwise u may wan to consider switching to a more premium brand...
let me know if u need more info, i'd be more than happy to help out another pug owner n possibly meet up with ur pug too!
