Exclamation Skin problems? Or Staph??

Pongo (my pup) got some skin problems but we are quite busy these days and can't even find some free time to take him to the vet. I searched in the web and I found his problems are similar to a disease called Staphylococcus (staph) that might cause death to human and dogs. What shall I do?! Hope somebody can help me...

I think you definitely should take it to the vet. Doing research online will give you some idea of what is wrong, but it is not going to resolve the problem.

The longer you drag, the more your puppy will suffer and might even reach a stage where it is too late to be cured. I suggest that you try talking to your parents or neighbours and bring the puppy to the vet as soon as possible...

I remembered that you lost 2 puppies to diseases - you don't want that to happen again right? Take good care of your puppy ya...
