I thought I'd caught it with his Furminator so cleaned it up and it was 'fine'.

Why his med-back is still swollen? What should I do? I can’t afford $2500 for MR test and etc. Is it a good idea to keep him on steroids the whole time? Please help! I don’t know what to do anymore.
Avatar n tn The vet may just drain it, and apply antiseptic, and probably give you some to keep bathing it with (it will be important to keep the wound open until it is fully drained) Or, like Misfits4Me said, a course of oral antibiotic may be necessary. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> had an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her back a while ago, and the vet drained it and washed it out with antiseptic, which I then had to do 3 times a day and allow the wound full drainage to stop it filling up again.

Seems to be trembling and will not even look at me when I walk in. A massive cyst an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> developed on his neck. It is draining but the color is brown and stinks link excrement. Took him to the vet yesterday, they gave him a shot and antibiotic pills but this seems to be getting worse not better.
Avatar f tn Dear Dr. Marie, five days ago, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> sweet <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> (Maltese - 2,8 years) started to feel sick, he had fever and he was trembling and he refused to eat. We took him to the vet and as we were waiting, we noticed a hard swelling in the left side of the neck (~3,5 cm in diameter), that for sure wasn't there the day before. The vet confirmed that he had fever (39,7C). The vet suspected that it was a trauma and it developed an abscess. They gave him three shots (antibiotics and anti-inflammatory).

Swollen glad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> one side, both lymph nodes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> swollen, increased thirst, urination, generally less energy.

Vet really doesn't see anything abnormal, but an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> is not himself!

459853 tn?1283144114 It is also possible it could be an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> caused perhaps by some cut or puncture wound. Can you see anything <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her skin under the fur? If she is fighting something like that she will not feel 100% an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> feeling is that you should take her for the vet to look at her, to be on the safe side. Especially as it does seem to be affecting her breathing.

Avatar f tn A few months ago, we found a small, hard lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan>'s left side of his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, he was about 9 months old at the time. It didn't seem to bother him and there was no change in his behavior or eating habits. His favorite activity is going to the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> park, where he is the youngest and most active, he loves playing with the other an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan>s but they all get rather rambunctious playing and "mouthing each other in their play".
Avatar m tn an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> had sudden swelling of his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and lower jaw. He is scratching a lot so we gave him a Benadryl inside a treat. This an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan>n't helped much, if any and the swelling is not getting better. I don't think he's eaten much and only drank a small amount. We are calling the vet at 7 in the morning when the vet opens and am hoping to get in right away. Does anyone know why this could have happened? We do live out in the country and perhaps it's a bite...
Avatar f tn an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> 13 year.old beagle was attacked by a <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the beach while we were out of the country last June 2012. Long story short, the wound (on her neck) wasn't.properly cleaned and being that we were in a third world country, vets weren't incredibly helpful. an abscess formed about a week after,was drained by the vet only to reform a couple weeks later. This continued periodically, the abscess moving around her neck and showing up in different places, at one point on the complete opposite side.
Avatar m tn I am also thinking (after researching a little) that this is either a swollen salivary gland or a lymph node issue (as well as maybe a tooth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span>.) any ideas or thoughts? Will this go away <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> its own? I've been giving him antibiotics (had some left over from an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> other an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> just a year ago & they are weight appropriate) & also doing warm compresses. Thanks so much! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/1086890'>Swollen Lymph Node in neck</a>.

It's underneath <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the side. I only noticed when petting him. It doesn't seem to hurt him, he still an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> his appetite, and is as playful as ever. Do you think this is something I can treat by cleaning with a warm compress and peroxide?
Avatar n tn She had an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> which needed to be removed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>...I researched this and found they are prone to dermoid sinus. Our vet removed the abscess on her neck and said in fact it had been an accumulation of hair/dirt. After surgery she had drains tubes for one day and he removed them. Her neck drained but then started swelling...we drained the fluid with a needled (per vets instructions) and it seemd to heal. Now there is a small mass still there and slight drainage...

Avatar f tn Until you get him neutered maybe you can get him used to a harness. You can not use a regular <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> leash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> a cat, LOL! They will or you will strangle them. The harness distributes the restraint around the entire cat body, no just the neck.....and Yea, good luck with him liking it. First just leave the lease where he can smell it and his scent will be on it. Then put just the harness over hid head and try to fasten it very loose.
Avatar n tn There were thousands of those little water blister type itchy suckers. Literally made the hair <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> stand. going to make appointment tomorrow and once I find out some information, I'll post what doc says. All I can say is DO NOT SCRATCH anY ITCH. Try the Bactine and let me know. Good luck all and I'll get back to you soon.
Avatar n tn is your <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> current <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> vaccines? Is the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> that bit your <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> current <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> its vaccines? Many of the viruses these vaccines cover are transmitted by body fluids, which includes saliva. Given your an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> puncture marks, saliva was definately transferred from the other an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> to yours.
Avatar m tn He had a surgery to clean the puncture wounds and place a drain for fliuds. the attacked area was th e <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and ear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the right side. The cut made for the procedure is very long, from ear to below his jaw. Upon followup exams he an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> developed hard skin to the touch and the vet says he may require yet another surgery to remove possibly dead tissue. Is this normal or the result of an inexperienced vet?
1541943 tn?1293125317 an tick borne infection may not show up in the blood for 3 weeks or so, therefore, although you just found a tick on your an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> it may not be possible to diagnose a tick borne disease yet. If your <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> is improving <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the cephalexin than it might be best to keep her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> it. once she an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> finished with the cephalexin she can be placed on doxycycline. Being on two antibiotics simultaneously may cause gastrointestinal symptoms and may not be recommended.
Avatar f tn and doing that can make the inflammation worse. I have removed an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> own bee stings, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan>self, but wouldn't like to try removing one from a <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>, as it can mean a certain amount of 'digging around' which hurts, and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> to be done very carefully! I'd let the vet do it. If she an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hasan> shown no worse reaction, she'll most likely be OK, and won't have an allergy to the sting, but it is possible infection or an abscess could develop, so it would be best to take her to the vet and get her properly checked.
Avatar f tn I just carry on removing them when I see them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her, simply because I am so wary about chemicals <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dog</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>. and I do believe it's possible for the ticks to become resistant to the products.
