    What do I do about this? What would you do about this? Do your bucks have missing hair like this cause the pee has rotted it off?

    I put some antibiotic ointment on it yesterday kinda of thick and it is gone today? Should I wrap it to protect the skin but then I have to change it everyday?

    Isn't there such a thing called Pee Shield? [​IMG]

    I would imagine you can make one! One belt and one mudflap! [​IMG]

    I have not delt with this personally, yet (my buck still has all his hair) but I have been told that if this happens to put bag balm on it. I would put it on as often as necessary, but I don't think it would be everyday. Poor guy! Urine Scald looks ouchy to me! You'd think they would get the clue! HA!

    My uncle has a whole mess of Boers and all his bucks have raw places like that from their peeing on themselves. They even have them on their noses.
