Here is Roger. He was supposed to be waking our daughter up...instead, I go in & find him on the bed with her...sleeping! I'll play catch up for anyone who doesn't want to read through the previous 7 pages. When my Mom first got this dog, Roger, he had open sores on both of his front legs. He was a neglect case...left in a small chain link cage. He would cower whenever a man raised his voice, even just loud enough to be heard across a room. Any man wearing a hat would make him whine. He was rescued and lived with a very nice family (and 7 other dogs ) for 2 months before we got him. Licking his paws looked like a nervous habit. I thought he was just scared. His sores sort of started to heal after my Mom's vet put him on Prednisone. He'd let one side heal while he licked the other. But after about 2 months, both sides weren't weeping any more. Still sores, but not leaking fluid. My Mom had another Golden, Rowdy. Roger & Rowdy were peas in a pod...Rowdy taught Roger how to be a dog. It was awesome to watch. And then my Mom died. Roger came to live with me & my family for 2 weeks while my Dad decided if he wanted the responsibility of two big ole dogs again. He decided he did. But in those two weeks, Roger had started licking again. Sores were weeping as bad as they were before. Dad took Roger to Mom's vet again. After a year and a half of emotional stability, these sores had NEVER gone away completely. They had healed a little, or switched sides back & forth, but they never went away. After those 18 months of dickering around, thinking that it was allergies, or nerves or grass or genetics or WHATEVER, I read a thread here where my bottle of Stop-Rot was shown to promote healing. I gave my Dad some of my SR. He put it on with the vet's approval (she was at her wit's end and would have tried Unicorn dust if she'd had any) but I sent her links to Glen's photos that show the results it gives. She didn't know if it would help, but she didn't think it'd hurt, so we might as well try it. This small dry spot is the worst that is left of any of his sores. This spot is just dry skin...hair is creeping in from the sides very slowly. No other spots or scars are visible any where on his legs. He doesn't lick them. Dad doesn't put Stop-Rot on them any more. In my book, that counts as healed. Thank you Glen, thank you very much.
