Some cockers are prone to this too, I know many people that use a diluted Hibiscrub mixture to wash around the mouth.

Thanks CC, will see if I can find some. How often would you do that then? Everyday or just a few times a week?

Finn's chin and folds around his mouth was like that a while back. We were given dilute hibiscrub from the vet 1 part hib 10 parts water. His was a yeast infection though but it looked dirty and looked like rust that would not rub off.

Think I'll definitely be giving the Hibscrub a try then. Found some on the internet 2.99 for 500mls, sounds reasonable enough!

Just a shame I have to use it at all, she is one sloppy drinker though so it's no surprise!

"The raw areas of infection can be very sensitive. they need to be cleaned gently with a non-stinging skin antiseptic and treated wiuth a topical antibiotic and anti-inflammatory ointment or cream." from "Caring for your dog" by Dr.Bruce Fogle.

I was reading this the other night so thought I would pass on the information.

Thanks. Think I'll try the Hibscrub, it is an antiseptic and will be mild when diluted.

I don't think she needs any ABs though, there's no inflammation and she's apyrexial so there isn't a bacterial infection present.

Plus Dr. Bruce Fogle thinks that Labradoodles are due to be recognised by the KC, so I'll definitely try the Hibscrub first!

Thanks though.
