What should be done for treatment of boils?

hi every 1 I have a 5 month old neo mastiff. I was feeding him Royal Canin since he was 45 days. 15 days back I switched to home food. minced ckicken boiled with spinach carrot beet n 2 cloves of garlic. with rice. he started getting boils n 4 days back it got severe. I took him 2 vet he gave him some injection now he is fine. but he has plenty of boils on his elbow. it has become hard n rough n when scratched white flake type skin peels off. its been a long time. now I feed him veg diet with curd rice a day n paneer n cheese as snacks. kindly suggest regarding the boils.

hii . .nothing to worry as neo mastiff has lessesr hair coat some times when dogs tends to get a itch problem they rubs there elbow against any firm object and tends to have boils.. its normal do not worry as it is a allegic problem and injection will cover all the boils. get him cvaccinated with dxextor.

2 Cloves of garlic daily !?! Thats overdosing him..thats enough to give heat boils to humans!!
You have got the diet all wrong.Include meat and get rid of all the dairy products.
Never change diet abruptly.

I think Puthran is correct, half of the meal should be meat product and the other half mostly rice and a little vegetable. I give a little musur dal also. Beef is best to build up the bones and muscles.

i have started giving him chicken, liver n heart. but the problem is whenever i start chicken he gets heat boils. thats why i had stopped giving him chicken earlier. yes i have stopped giving garlic too. his current diet chart is........ morning 7 am rava with milk, 2 bananas n 1 boiled egg. at 12 noon 500gms curd with rice. eve 5pm veg(carrot, spinach, pumpkin, french beans, peas, beet root), moong dal, chicken meat, liver n heart mixed with rice. night 10pm same as eve. i also add 15ml flaxseed oil n grounded flaxseeds to this diet.

Hi Ganesh, no hard feelings but you seek suggestions here but you dont implement them or experiment a lot. Any reputed breeder would have given you a daily feed and exercise chart for atleast 1 years which seems to be missing.500 Gms of curd daily to a 5 month old dog is absurd!! What i suggest is list down all suggestions here, show it to your vet and finalize on a diet.Too much yo yoing happening which isnt good for your dog.
1.Grains which you feed break down into sugar and they cause skin allergies.
2.Dairy products turn into lactose, again sugar and cause skin allergies.
3. Total daily feeding should be 2-3 % of desired body weight atleast in adult dogs. So a 40 Kg dog should be fed roughly 800 gms of food. Check with your vet but seems like you are already feeding him a over a Kg of food daily.
4.How much does he weigh now..if he grows up too fast will lead to joint problems.
Finalize one diet after proper consultation and just avoid posting diet questions on the forum for atleast 6 months.Your dog would be feeling like a guinea pig wishing that your internet connection would permanently conk off :)
