Recent developments in treating Canine Pyoderma

Because of the most recent recurrence of Pyoderma in my Rottweiler Ruffin I have done a new search for more effective treatments. My veterinarian originally put Ruff on a high dose of Cephalexin but after two weeks of no sign of improvement he sent a culture out for lab testing and found the new strain of Pyoderma was resistant to Cephalexin so he switched Ruff over to another antibiotic.
You may want to read this new report Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcal Infections: Recent Developments on this link and talk to your veterinarian about doing similar lab work.

Here are some additional useful links on effective antibiotics and topical treatments as well.
