Common Questions and Answers about Abscess in dogs throat


Avatar f tn Inn the meantime fill a clean bucket filled with hot water and two large tablespoons of salt well dissolved get a clean hand towel and immerse in the bucket then gently squeeze out and making sure its not too hot place it on your dogs abscess until it cools down then repeat this should bring it too a head and hopefully release the pus inside, never squeeze the abscess. This is not advised if you can get to a VET, it can be risky .The antibiotics are important too......
Avatar f tn Hi Mark, It is difficult to say without seeing him but I would not focus on the wheezing and throat clearing but would be more concerned with the change in his eating habits and weight loss. I am thinking that he is in pain somewhere, perhaps the mouth (maybe a tooth root abscess which would also explain the wheezing) and his appetite has been effected and now he only will eat food if it is extra yummy. Weight loss in a Jack is very unusual at this age.
Avatar f tn One bit of optimism is that her creatinine decreased from 8 to 2 in a matter of weeks only on SC fluids and Aluminum Hydroxide. In my experience the creatinine only decreases slightly. Is it possible to have the abscess removed using a local anesthetic and sedation or even very safe general anesthesia?
Avatar f tn There are a number of potential causes for pain around the time of eating but the most serious one is a retrobulbar abscess, or an abscess that forms in the space behind the eye. These can cause serious problems fairly quickly, including blindness and in severe cases, death. In most cases, dogs with retrobulbar abscesses are really pained by having their mouths opened -- some dogs refuse to allow this and others just scream when someone attempts to open the mouth beyond a certain point.
Avatar n tn They told me she must have gotten something loged in her throat and her body trying to break it down caused a virus.

Avatar n tn It can cause convulsions in any dog and seizures in dogs with central nervous system disorders. This being the weekend and most veterinary offices only being open half a day today and closed tomorrow, it would NOT be a good time to give this to your pet unless, as I said, you make your vet aware of its administration prior to using it. Besides, your vet will need to check out this swelling to make sure it doesn't need to be lanced and drained.
Avatar n tn I know its just a dog but I miss her so much it hurts. like my stomache is in my throat all the time.
Avatar m tn In this case, you will have drainage into your throat, called post-nasal drip, and your throat often have too much mucus in it, which can cause a mild sore throat or cough on a chronic basis. 9. WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS? The main symptom of sinusitis is pain. Pain in your face, pain in your head.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Friends! Welcome all Tramadol warriors. We're all very glad to see you. Please come in and share.
Avatar n tn It's a little scarier this time because the abscess in the right nostril is so painful and now I have a headache, swollen gland in the left side of my neck, the roof of my mouth on the left side, burning and pain on my let cheek and lip and I have been on Bactrim for about 3 days and applying ointment to the sore. I keep thinking since it's Sunday I want to go to the hospital and get checked but I'll feel like a jerk if there is nothing they can do.
Avatar f tn The following adverse events were reported voluntarily during post-approval use of the product in dogs and cats in foreign markets: death, tremors/ataxia, seizures, anaphylaxis, acute pulmonary edema, facial edema, injection site reactions (alopecia, scabs, necrosis, and erythema), hemolytic anemia, salivation, pruritus, lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, and inappetance.
Avatar m tn It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer. My dog was knocked flat by the loading dose and barely moved for the first couple of days. He bumped into objects, seemed blind, responded to sounds incorrectly (looked in the wrong direction), tripped, stumbled, and fell flat on his stomach a few times when trying to walk.
Avatar f tn None of the others seem sick and they wont ever trust me again to capture them in the humane traps no matter what i try. I have some human antibiotics in capsule form of Amoxicillan 500mg and ciprofloxacin 500mg. Could I sprinkle a little of this on his food over a period of (how many days)??
Avatar f tn sometimes it feels like i have something stuck in my my throat when I swallow...THE WORST PART ABOUT THIS IS....MY FAMILY n FRIENDS....They know I have a problem but no-one HAS EVER SAID ANYTHING TO ME....n IT hurts because I know theyre somewhat ashamed but they love me and they know saying something will be too damaging to my ego and confidence which is already low...THIS CONDITION REally showed me who my real loved ones are....
1323357 tn?1274826939 You might have reduced serotonin due to stress (even if you don't feel that stressed, modern life is pretty stressful in itself) as Tommygunz has theorized - in this case the supplements he has listed will help that re balance but you also need to train yourself out of the over thinking and ruminating habit and try to live day by day as normally and routinely as possible. For most people, the DP dissipates naturally when they are out of the traumatic situation but this is not always the case.
Avatar n tn It is a lifelong problem common in certain breeds but possible in all breeds of both dogs and cats. It is also called rodent ulcers ..not sure if its the same or a variation of the problem. Cortisone wouldn't be enough. My vet treated with steroid shots too...but a stronger one. (forget which one). It's about $25 per shot and it reoccurs every few months. One vet misdiagnosed and wanted to do biopsies after biopsies, another vet talked about cancer.....

Avatar f tn The 5th day, developed into chills without fever, with few sweats going on for a month, it happens in few hours of each day, still have a mild soar throat and ocassionaly dry couch. though dry cough burst for a few minutes once in a day. My stomach appears to be discomfort at times but it does not lead to Diarrhea. my stool is dark. and I am easily prone to motion sickness. my first two weeks later. CBC test counts from 4800, monocyte 4.0.
Avatar n tn Since your liver enzymes are raised, possibility of liver infection is there. An abscess in the liver at the site of surgery could also be the case. This is often missed if not searching for it carefully. Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn it will be costly but save you from this pain in the long run. Also...when these abscess drain the puss is contageous...so make sure you wash your clothes and that warm compress in hot water to kill any bacteria that may have contaminated the material. Hope all this has helped....
211940 tn?1267884866 In October, 2007, I developed an extremely sore throat, accompanied by an abscess on my tonsil. At the same time, I found that I could not turn my head side-to-side, nor lift my arms forward, sideways, etc. The Sports Medicine doctor took x-rays, which turned out so poorly, he could not determine whether or not I had a hole in my rotator cuff. I was sent to rehab., whereupon I was told that the tissue in my upper arms was filled with knots, and that my shoulder joints were not frozen.
Avatar f tn Amazing.....I am an OLD woman (59!) who just came home from the hospital. I had been diagnosed with high blood pressure and on a visit to a "clinic" to get medication. I mention the SAME pain above my left breast. He "freaked out", insisted on an ambulance, insisted this was a heart attack brought on by my "newly found" high blood pressure. Nine hours in the emergency room, needles, nitro, ekg's, admitted to a room, etc......

Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
Avatar n tn that I can see, unless I give in and scratch. I take cranberry supplements to keep me flushed out for a UTI, which I was treated for last year. My doctor is unsupportive, and unhelpful-told me was due to regrowth from not getting waxed. I just want some facts to arm myself with before trying the doc (new doc) office again. Any suggestions?? All you cooch experts feel free to speculate.
