I am so sorry Chug got into toothpaste.
Did he actually ingest some?What is the brand of toothpaste so I can see the ingredients?
After your reply please give me a few minutes to type detailed answer.
Thanks so much for your very helpful reply.
It is possible the toothpaste (if it was minty) irritated Chug's skin.
Apply raw honey to any sore areas. It is a remarkable healing agent:http://winterparkhoney.ecrater.com/p/4865201/16-oz-melaleuca-honey-raw-unheated
He may have an unrelated urinary tract infection or cystitis:
Many times this is caused by a dry food diet:
Pick up all dry food. Feed Chug Royal canin wet food (S/O is equal to Iams C/D).
He can also have human baby food chicken or turkey with no onion or garlic.
If he does have a UTI he will need an antibiotic.
Please let me know how he is doing. I hope he feels better very soon.
