Bacterial Infection

May 28th, 2004, 09:57 AM
My chocolate lab has a rash on his belly. This is not the first he as had it. When he got it the first time I took him to the vet and she said that it was a bacterial infection, she also said 'these things happen to active, outdoor dogs.'
At that time she gave us pills to help clear the problem however, I was hoping that there was something I could do to clear the problem without going back to the vet and paying $50 just for her to tell me it's the same issue as before and the another $30 on the pills.
A breeder friend of mine said that polysporin and keeping him extra clean should clear the problem. Is this true?

Thanks Alot,
Angela :o
