Pug moms

Or for anyone that has an animal with wrinkles or folds. 

Mia had black crusty crap above her nose outside of her one wrinkle/fold. I used a baby wipe and cleaned it out, but it was gross and smelled. Do you have any suggestions for me?  She has a vet appt in 2 weeks and I'll ask for the anti-yeast meds, but since it is close to her eyes, I don't want anything too bothersome. I cleaned it with a wipe, dried it and then used a Q-tip with triple antibiotic and put it in the fold. I feel bad for her. From what I read, I need to clean her wrinkles daily. That's nuts!

Re: Pug moms

  • I had a pug, he's gone now :( but I'd clean his wrinkles with a q tip or face cloth about every 3-4 days. In the summer he'd get the crusty stuff like you described. I think it was because he would sweat more or something. I put some polysporin (ok'd by vet) when it was bad. Love pugs!!! :)
  • I have a pug but no new suggestions. I clean Spaz's eyes often. I do know you want to get her eyes checked ASAP because you never want to wait especially pug eyes, they can get infected quickly and that can get expensive plus can be dangerous. Hope Mia feels better soon!

  • I agree w PP that you should try to get her in sooner, if possible. In the mean time, try and keep the folds dry. Clean daily w just a damp wash cloth with water. Your vet may want to test a bit of the discharge to see whether it's bacterial or fungal (yeast). The treatment for each is different. Bacterial=oral antibiotics and maybe a antibacterial powder. Fungal=topical cream or liquid. If shes really itchy, they may do a short course of oral steriods like prednisone. I would try to avoid triple antibiotics because close to pug eyes and trapping more moisture (Im sure you're familiar w eye issues too). Regardless, it should be a fairly simple treament. Good luck w your puggy! (Im a vet tech, sorry for the rant, it just comes out)
  • Desitin!!!! We use to use that on my bulldog all the time in his wrinkles.  You need to dry it out there.

    Thanks, ladies! I'm in NY for the next week, so I'm away from the vet. I'll call them and see if there's anything I can get at petco in the meantime. I really appreciate it!
