    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    I just had my maltese to the groomer, she said he has a bacterial infection on his nose and to treat it with mixture of apple cider vinegar and peroxide applied with a q-tip. the tip of his nose does appear dry. should I just take him to the vet to be checked? any comments would be appreciated!

    If you have a vet, it never hurts to check it out. Or you could try her solution for a bit and if it doesn't clear up, take your pup to the vet. The peroxide/vinegar isn't going to hurt him unless he has an open wound, and then it would just sting him.
