Common Questions and Answers about Abscess on dog's face

abscess

They tend to just fill right up again. We had a sebaceous cyst removed from our <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>'s face a few months ago. She'd had it for well over a year along with a couple on her back that resolved with no medical involvement. The facial cyst was right under her eye and finally got big enough that it interfered with her vision, so off it came. It was the size of a large marble. My vet knows me well, so I was able to observe the surgery. Cool stuff!
Since it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the side of your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>'s face, it could be related to the a tooth root abscess. Allow your vet to further investigate. Your vet can perform a fine needle aspirate or other biopsy, or lance the lesion if it is an abscess.
My dog has a soft lump under his jaw and this morning his face was swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the same side as the lump. His whole face wasn't swollen, just the jowel on the same side as the lump. I have an appointment to take him to the vet but was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what this might be.
As soon as it was time to roll over and get some sleep, I started to worry about him. I googled this eye problem called carnassial abscess. Its when a root in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</span>'s upper molar tooth can become infected and it caused swelling underneath the eye. The only way to cure it is to remove the tooth, which can cost anywhere from $100-$600 (as estimated on the net). That would pretty much be most, if not all of what I have left in my bank account.
Also during the course of treatment he developed a protrusion/some boil sort of thing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the right side of his face and due to it and the swelling up this protrusion his right eye has also got closed.The vet punctured this boil sort of thing to take out any discharge or pus if present.initiallt one day some fluid came out but now it is swelled up and there is no fluid/pus in it and our dogs eye is closed due to swelling.the medication continues but not uch effect as such. Our dog does.
At 14, your boy is quite an old man in doggy years, so I was getting a bit fearful of the outcome ... but your posting has put a smile <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my face. Do keep us informed how things go.
That's what my cat's skin cancer looked like it started like a bump which I though was a abscess at first then began to open and would bleed off and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>, I thought it was a bad infection cause that is what the first vet had said so I also bought her a skin disinfectent spray but it would never heal so I knew something else must be wrong so I'm glad I took her to the vet; now the next thing is surgery and all I can do is hope and pray everything goes well.
My dog (shepherd/husky mix, 73 pounds, 12 years old) began to have grand mal seizures last week. He had two seizures, one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> Sunday and one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> Monday, at almost exactly the same time in the evening. After the second seizure, the vet put him on phenobarbital (97 mg/2x per day). He's been on it for five days now and is still pretty out of it. He is extremely lethargic (sleeps most of the day), has coordination problems, and weakness in his hind end. He walks veeery slowly.
Just so everyone knows, I posted a question about our condition <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> a Doctor-to-Patient forum. So far there has been no answer, they're several days behind in posting answers. I assume someone on our old thread had asked them (MedHelp drs) before, but i figured it couldn't hurt to try again.
