Abscess on horses

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess on horses


Avatar m tn If you cleared on Pegintron I would think that you would also clear on Pegasys. I did Pegintron and cleared but relapsed after stopping. Now I am doing Pegasys and cleared pretty quickly. I think you would be okay if you did Pegasys. My doctors tried to disuade me from Pegasys since Pegintron worked the last time. I prevailed upon them to let me try Pegasys because I had such a hard time with Pegintron. Thus far it has been a lot easier on me.
Avatar f tn My concern would be some type of osteitis of the facial bone that can occur in young horses that is a normal situation. As far as extractions on older horses, it is not abnormal for there to be an enlarged area above the tooth IF the tooth was repelled by opening the sinus cavity from the outside as some boney enlargement from the flap of bone made into the sinus would be expected.
Avatar n tn Yesterday I noticed late in the day that my cat's left pupil was consticted and looked blood shot on the bottom. The right eye was dilated. He was not his usual loving self and seemed needy and frightened. He was closing his right eye. I took him to the vet who said he had Anisacoria. Well his eye's have never looked like this until late yesterday afternoon. As the evening progressed his left eye became watery and almost glassy like.
Avatar n tn At darkness her both eyes look normaly dilated but in daylight her pupils have diferent sizes (the left is larger) I took her to the vet on saturday, the vet found her healthy, without fever or with a signal of being sick, just with her left eyelid a bit swollen and suggested me to go to an ophthalmologist. I made an appointment for today. but I'm too worried. She eat, walk and act normaly in fact she doesn't look to be sick just has her left pupil look strange and is always dilated.
Avatar f tn Although in my personal opinion, after seeing my friend with hyperthyroidism loose 25 lbs in a month, vomit after eating anything, have freakish abscess and horrifying blood pressure, have miscarriages and frequent panic attacks. And THEN become anemic because of the medicine they gave her- I'm thankful for my under active thyroid. My road hasn't been easy but from this side of the fence I feel like I can deal with it more than I could if I was in her shoes.
Avatar f tn Can anyone shed some light on this for me? I just had surgery to place a seton in a refractory fistula, and it looks like there are actually two setons running through the same tract. I was only expecting to see one suture/string. Is this common, might I have two fistulas close together and the surgeon used two setons...? Anyone familiar with this scenario?
Avatar n tn This is the first time I've posted on this site although I have been a quiet reader over the last 3 months. I'm wondering if any of the wonderful ladies here have any idea how long it takes for your body to settle down after laparotomy surgery for Endometriosis? Many thanks in advance for help.
524608 tn?1244421761 YUH!!!!!! We can ride around on horses in armour (Our unshod steeds must be protected at all times) and us scantily dressed (Because 98.6 degrees is mighty toasty) whilst we shoot bows and arrows at flying dragons!! (We ride tall and straight and keep our balance without the reins, we steer with pressure from our legs) We are strong, we are alert. --Well, that was my visualization technique the first 3 months of tx.
594071 tn?1241954397 at the same time I do not agree with kind of 'giving up on a dog's treatment' because it is getting on in years. Depending on breed, and overall condition, a lot of older dogs do very well with many surgical interventions. This couldn't be an anal gland abscess, could it? Or an anal gland which badly needs draining?
Avatar f tn Ok This is gross. I've had an abscess on my gum for at least 6 months now, and can't afford to go get it taken care of. So every few days I do a little self surgery, with an exacto blade to relieve the pressure. Its disgusting but cool at the same time, like popping the most giant zit. So gross, so gross. Hiding my head now.

Avatar f tn It is impossible for me to know exactly what is going on with you. That being said, this is some background on systemic infections. As massive bacterial infections are overcome by therapeutic intervention, the by products of the destruction are neurotoxins, which damage brain cells. Organs are damaged, including the pituitary, which controls production of many hormones. These take along time to get out of the system. And in some cases do damage that cannot be rectified.
356518 tn?1322267242 I am having an MRI done on Wednesday and go back to her on Friday to get the results of that - one main reason I haven't been posting/commenting as much lately, as it makes the pain worse sitting, so I, unfortunately, have to limit my computer time :( I totaly agree about how people who don't suffer with chronic pain just sipmly do not understand what we as CP patients go through on a daily basis.
Avatar n tn It is now three weeks since the op and I can at least move around more, no longer doing an impression of a ladybird on its back trying to get up... The main scar is still sore on the inside and by later in the day I get pain down the left side, still have the shelf overhanging which hoping with time and eventually some exercise will go, still quite bloated but this comes and goes seems to get worse later in the day. Hormones have been all over the place as well.
Avatar n tn I went back to bed and they still were sore when I woke up. I am not large (34 a/b) and they did feel less sore as the day went on but were sore again when I woke up the next day. They don't hurt as much now but kinda feel tender right along the underwire bra. It's not just one boob but both? Any ideas? Any suggestions?
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 n tn after i had a spinal injury and 2 opperations i sufferd this on and off for years. it is nerve sensations that you are feeling and absolutely nothing to worry over. in my experience , what we've never had before feels scary, but can be quite harmless.
Avatar f tn Although I VERY RARELY feel it on the right side, it DOES happen once in awhile. But for the most part it's been my left side. I've had all the heart tests, including stress echo, I've had an MRI of my brain and neck, I've had a breast exam. I've even seen a chiropractor. Every test they've done comes back normal. And nothing seems to help. I've tried aspri - doesn't work. I try massaging my breast and shoulders and that seems to help a tiny bit. Usually the pain is very dull...
Avatar n tn 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. This tearing is not related to intercourse since my husband and I are unable to do that due to the pain it causes me. There is no real pain otherwise. I am getting some minor bleeding when I poop due to the tears in the anal area.
551343 tn?1506834118 Hi, I've been in the MS forum for several months and find it a source of advice and inspiration but it's nice to have the support of people who like myself are undiagnosed as yet, I'm currently in the ''possible MS but it might be something else'' category at present and my neuro has climbed on that big fence and staying there for the time being, he put me on carbamazapine for symptoms to which I have had side effects on the low dose, however, I learned this morning he wants me to stay on th
Avatar n tn His ENT did allergy testing on him, however, he did not have any significant allergies. Our last resort was to have PE tubes placed. This only made his symptoms worse and they took them out after a couple of weeks. Suprisingly after they took the tubes out and his ears were healing, he was symptom free. When the holes closed up he began with the same symptoms all over again.
