Vet visit and well wishes for Sexy Penny!

Hi everyone!

Mom hauled me in to see the Vet again this morning (she swears she doesn't have Munchausesn by Proxy...she's just a freak about keeping me healthy). I've had these gross cysty looking things on my chin that won't go away and one ruptured and BLED last night which put her RIGHT over the edge!

LOOK...(now look away...I'm HIDEOUS!)

Dr. Graves and one of my favorite techs Lisa both checked me out and said that it's just some folliculitis that has developed a staph infection. I don't have mast cell tumors or anything horrible (WHEW!). Dr. Graves gave me a LASER TREATMENT to kill the bacteria deep down in my chin to help clear up my infection. Check me out!!!

Cool-breeze chillin' with the Pug!!!!

Mom said I was lucky and even told Dr. Graves that she'd volunteer to be a guinea pig to see if the laser would do anything for crow's feet around human eyes...we'll see how that goes.

I have to take antibiotics for 10 days and I have some special medicated wipes for my chin to help clear up the yuckiness. Mom got me some PEGETABLES to make up for the torture.


On a completely different note...we want to direct you over to see our friend Penny and her awesome mom Dana. Penny is a very fabulous, beefy and SEXY Pug who has very suddenly lost her eyesight due to something called SARD (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration). We are thankful to learn that she doesn't have any underlying conditions (like cancer or a tumor) that could have caused this. We know that Penny loves her whippy cream, so here is a HUGE can of it just for her....

Better make it the LIGHT variety...Penny's mom said that her doc said she's a little TOO beefy and sexy ;-)

Happy Tuesday everyone! We hope everyone is healthy and gearing up for Turkey Day!

Those doggles are AWESOME!!! Glad it wasn't anything too bad Sal. This was kind of like your first derm treatment... guys like you LOVE getting face treatments! Beauty is key, right? (And health!)

Winston has been using those same medicated wipes for YEARS!! He got those bumps as a puppy and STILL (at 8 years old) gets yeasty under his chin so we always have a supply! LOL!

Apollo said...

I have those red bumps too! But my doctor has never said anything about them, so we just thought it was a harmless "pug" thing. Hmmmm.

Oh I hate my Doggles! Mommy "tries" to make me wear them when I am swimming (I do always wear my life jacket) and when I'm hiking and when I'm out in the snow... Get the picture? They stay on for maybe 30 seconds...hehe.

Pearl said...

Ok, I have those bumps too!!!! Who knew they were so popular?

What are these alleged wipes called? Do we need to get some?

And we're thinking of Penny too!

Have a great Turkey Day, y'all!!!

Salinger you have one great mom and great vet for taking care of you so fast. A laser treatment are you sure don't live in Hollywood CA?

Stubby said...

Salinger dude! You look crazy cute in those googles. Are you sure you didn't have any other treatments done while you were there?

I used to get those icky bumps too but Mom never took me to the doctor. Hmmm. More neglect, huh?

I stopped by Penny's blog this morning. She is one fine chick and I know she's going to be okay.

Whoa whoa whoa, Salinger buddy, did that laser stuff hurt? We are glad your mom is keeping you healthy and stuff but if that hurt we think you deserve more than some pegetables! Like maybe a pizza or something. You did get to wear some nifty glasses tho.

Lots of licks--

Oh no!! Gus gets those some times, we call them pimples but thankfully they haven't gotten infected. eek. :p

Puglette said...

charlie gets those pimples all the time. we use clearasil wipes and ointment and it really helps. and yes, hers bleed sometimes too. but you look fab in those goggles!

Harry Pugalicious said...


Didn't your Mom tells you you's not supposed to try to pop those pimples? That's why they gets infected!

Staph = YUCK! But we's glad that's all it is and not something really bad.

We were sad to hear about Penny too. I wish we could sends her some whipped cream but I bet there's so post-911 regulation against sending those kinds of cans.

Punchbugpug said...

Nice "doggles"!

Dana Orsborn said...

A can of whipped cream is the
ultimate gift someone can give
Penny! We really appreciate the
pug love! Penny thinks Salinger
looks really sexy in those
man pug goggles.

Hank said...

Sal, buddy.....you could never look "hideous". (hahaha!)

Laser treatment, huh? I dunno, bud...I'm thinking ya might have had a little "work" done while gettin' yer zits removed. I'm gonna hafta really check out yer mug next time I see ya.

agent99 said...

S-dog, that's the story all the celebs tell when they are getting some "work" done. Uh-huh, folliculitis my #ss.
My mom says she doesn't know of any laser than can zap staph bugs.
awesome doggles though.
We get very icky stuff in our nose folds, so our vet gave us MALASEB wipes - but we hear that's best for yeast.
Next time, try a scarf insteadof th elame "pimple story", dude.

The photo of you in your doggles ROCKS, Salinger! AND I'm glad it was just some infected pimpley things.

And Penny can never be too beefy or too sexy!
