Nose

I've noticed bo has a spot on his nose that will not heal up that I have seen on other Pyrenees before. Does anybody else have experience with this?

It would be very useful if you were to provide a picture so we could actually see what you are referring to.

Without that it is difficult to make any meaningful comment.

Spot on Nose
by: Donna

If it's a sore and isn't healing, you need to have him checked by your vet.

Perhaps you should have that checked by your vet. Much better to know exactly what that spot is so that treatment, if needed, can be administered. Some skin conditions are transmittable to other dogs and/or people. You'll want to avoid that, so...time for a visit to the vet, I'm thinking.

time for a visit with the vet
by: Tressie

I concur with previous advice. This could be an innocuous skin cancer or a more serious kind that really needs a vet check. White coated animals are more prone to developing these skin cancers. The nose is a common site. The sooner this is removed the quicker it will heal and the less expense to you. More serious skin cancers can spread into deeper tissue if not removed and affect internal organs.

rescue
by: stormy

Honestly the expense is no concern (that Really sounds more smartass than what I mean) He was a rescue From an adopter who did not know how to deal with his issues. The first part of his life he was very abused. The people that ended up adopting him were going to have him pts Because Of behavior Issues. I talked them out of it. What I'm saying Is I rescued him it's my responsibility To make sure he's cared for.

RIP baby
by: stormy

Sorry it has taken a while to update. I also found a lump on his belly. After receiving the news, I decided he had a hard enough start in life to make him suffer thru cancer and treatment.

See Beaux's original "owner" had no business having any dog, much less a GP. The day he was taken his poor body was one connected bruise (old and new) and he'd been tied to a tree out in the woods for most of his life at that point.

I gave him a hell of a doggy day before we went to say good bye. I hope he crossed over knowing he was a good dog and knowing that he was loved. I hugged him until his last little breath. I miss my boy.

Thank You For Your Kindness
by: Frank

Stormy, There is no doubt that he knew he was loved by you.

He is so fortunate that you rescued him. You showed the greatest kindness to make the tough decision and to be with him to the end.

He was not alone.

You will miss him for a very long time.

We have a Rainbow Bridge section on this site. Why not post a tribute to him there?

Thank you for making this Pyr's life a better one.

An Opening line...
by: Frank

Writing a piece for Rainbow Bridge is very difficult. It brings up so many memories. It can be so painful. Start by acknowledging your pain, then tell us the beautiful story of your time together.

You could start with something like this...

No matter how big a hole a Pyr will dig in your back yard, nothing compares to the size of the hole they leave in your heart when they are no longer with us.

You can take it from here.
