My boy has several, like ten or eleven staph bumps on his back/side. He had a few Monday and Tuesday but I was vomiting from stomach flu so couldn't leave the house. Vet was closed yesterday and today. Tomorrow is his surgery day at the vet's office. Will it hurt until Monday to get antibiotics? Or should I take him to an emergency vet? Thanks!

I am dealing with staph now with Roxy. It has always been the case with Roxy that if I wait the staph just gets worst and the itching is unbearable. Roxy's bumps seem to multiple right before my eyes. I don't know what to tell you, if you can swing the cost I might go to the emergency vet.

unless they are really bothering him, I would wait till the vet is open again. It isn't life threatening.

Got any good medicated shampoo?

Ketachlor wipes?


If the dog is otherwise acting fine, I'd clean the area well and see the vet when possible.

How about some benadryl for the iching? And some antibacterial spray on the bum?
I'm only making suggestions...
