Staph Lesions Case Studies

This is a 3 year old terrier with red spots that are scaling around the spots. The dog is very itchy. These lesions are typical of Staph but can also be caused by ringworm and other infectious organisms. We did a skin scraping to look for mange, a skin cytology, and a skin culture to check for the very dangerous form of Staph called MRSA. Fortunately the non-MRSA form of Staph was diagnosed and we successfully treated the dog without oral antibiotics using our special bland of antimicrobial herbs and several remedies to help the immune system fight the infection.

The dog was better in 3 weeks.
