Avatar n tn My dog (a pug) was attacked a couple of days ago - she seemed fine. We washed the cuts and she has been eating normal - she's been a little sore. Today though she has been very sluggish and her right shoulder has started swelling. Is there something I can do for her at home to reduce the swelling?
1078123 tn?1255914486 I can’t figure this out, is this pinched nerve or spinal abscess cause by bacteria and compresses the nerve? And, if my dog was on antibiotic for 10 days, why didn’t help him? 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 my dog has a small lump behind his left front leg. it causes no pain what could it be?
Avatar m tn Furthermore, it appears that there is swelling behind her left eye, and she has very dry skin and is constantly itching herself, but we’re unsure if these symptoms are related. We know the dog has allergies, so we’ve always attributed the swelling and itching to this cause. She has not had problems eating her food or drinking water. She was a bit lethargic at first, I believe she was scared, but has since remained as perky and active as ever.

Really need advice and whats wrong and will it get infected if we don't treat it. Thank you for your time and I really appreciate it.
Avatar m tn I had a similar experience with my Wolfhound. Had to take him to Vet for abscess ended up on Ant-biotics for 14 days. Should have taken him in earlier.
Avatar f tn The vet says she has pancreatic insufficiency and inflammatory bowel disease and she also has a abscess on her incision where she was spayed, it has done been drained several times and then again yesterday, the vet said if it doesnt get better he going to do surgery. He isnt sure if she may have something else going on that is causing her not to eat, he said if she doesnt get better he going to do explatory surgery.

Avatar f tn thank you for your help. I've never seen anything like this on a dog and i thought maybe it was a spider bite. We cleaned it was some saline solution the vet gave us a few months back and were able to get a little more out of it.

Avatar m tn A neighborhood big dog attacked the cat 2 days ago. I heard the commotion and went outside and scared the big dog away.The cat was on his back and I was able to grab him before he ran away as he appeared to be really hurt. There was cat hair everywhere. He appeared to be in some kind of shock for the first 24 hours or so. He has 1 small puncture wound on front shoulder and many scrapes. The cat has been resting for about 48 hours now.
Avatar m tn A cat I am feeding was attacked by a big dog. He has 1 small puncture wound on front shoulder and many scrapes. This is a 20lb outdoor cat who put up a good fight and avoided getting killed somehow. The cat has been resting for 24 hours now. I cleaned all wounds and the many scrapes with peroxide, betadine and neosporin. I am giving him 50mg of Penicillin twice a day. Today he accepted very little food and water. His 3rd eyelids are not up and his eyes look clear.
Avatar f tn My dog has been diagnosed with Cushing's disease and has been taking Trilostane (60mg bid) for about 5 weeks. After about a week on the medication I noticed a decrease in the drinking and an increase in energy. I then noticed a lump under his eye which was a tooth root abscess. He was given clindamycin (sp?) and after about 2 days on the antibiotic he started the excessive drinking again. A urine cortisol test was done after about a week on the antibiotic with even more elevated results.
878936 tn?1240340085 Our 8 year old Lab/Boxer Mix has not ate for going on 3 days. He is going to the vet today. I am just looking for some people to talk to. Some of the things that i noticed about him are. He is not eating any food, not even table food. It started 5 days ago we switched him to wet food casue he quit eating his dry food, the first day he ate it, the second he ate some, the next he would not any anything. Today is day #3 of eating nothing.
Avatar f tn Were you treating the abscess on your own or under the care of a veterinarian? My vote is that the abscess was far worse than what was visible on the surface, and likely needed surgical drainage. Antibiotics can do only so much, and if they weren't specific for the particular bacteria strain at work, they would do no good at all. I'm guessing that the infection got into her blood stream (sepsis) and she finally died of multiple organ failure.
Avatar f tn Do you have a Credit Card? If so pay the vet on that...you will make montly payments off on the card. Thereare also resources which may help you. Take a look at the Health Pages article "Resources to help pay for vet care" (I think it's called) To get to the Health article pages, scroll down this page, and on the right at the very bottom under "Most viewed Health Pages" click on "view all health pages". You should find it somewhere there.
Avatar f tn The vet gave atibiotics for my dog after the 3rd day the sore on her leg was healing up but she wasnt getting any better. She couldnt weight bear very much we had to lift her up for my dog to catch her balance she walked short distances then lay back down.this was fri the end of the 2nd week.On Sat she was urinating where she layed and had a very hard med BM. Sun evening she tried to move her head but she couldnt, also stopped drinking water on her own I had to give it through a seringe.
Avatar n tn Sounds like he now has an abscess from impacted anal glands. Was he put on antibiotics? Since you're having to express them so often, you might ask your vet if they can be surgically removed. It might cause more trouble than it's worth - I'm honestly not sure.

Avatar n tn Depending on the general health of the dog, a small dog weighing 45 pounds can live 15 years or more! Ask your vet about making payments to have the abscess taken care of. If you are considering putting him down because of an abscessed tooth I can tell you that most vets would sternly recommend against it, and it probably will not cost you a lot more to have the tooth taken care of than it would to have him euthanized. PLEASE consider having the tooth doctored.
Avatar f tn I have a dog who is 4 years old and her name is Prissy and she was spayed in september and she been having alot of problems since then, she been vomiting and wont hardly eat and been running fever, which she has done this before because she has inflammatory bowel and pancreatic insufficiency, so the vet said maybe that was causing ehr problems, but she kept getting a abscess on her incision and the vet kept draining it but it wouldnt get better, but friday she started running a high fever and he
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.
