Lump after dog bite

Common Questions and Answers about Lump after dog bite


516285 tn?1211550990 Yes, there can be swelling after a bite. IMHO, taking him to the vet about the swelling was a good thing. You have done everything you can for your dog and I'm sure he knows it. He is a young dog but being bitten must have been traumatic for him and you. Was he attacked by another dog or were they playing? Either way, the history of the biter is something you might want to find out about.

203342 tn?1328740807 com/wiki/Dog_Cushings_DiseaseIt will explain everything to you. My dog was just diagnosed with Cushings she is 10years old. She is a Siberian Husky and she has a longer life expectancy so I am treating her. She has had all the symptoms you describe. Panting, drinking water like crazy, back legs very weak and lost a lot of muscle, eating like a wild dog,up all night has to pee all the time even in the house which she NEVER EVER did before. She lost her eyesight but that doesn't bother her much.
Avatar n tn This lump may just be scar tissue, as a result of the tick bite. The lump could also be due to a vaccine reaction and although somewhat rare, vaccine sarcomas do occur in dogs. Because your dog seems to be feeling fine and the lump is not bothering him, I would not worry but checking with your vet is always wise.
375103 tn?1199227274 Dogs with floppy ears tend to have somewhat more ear issues than dogs with pointed, upright ears. Your dog may have a very simple, easily treated cyst-like formation in the ear flap; or an infection (like a big zit); a swelling from a bug bite; or something more serious. Until you find out for certain, I wouldn't mess with it too much. If it's infection, squeezing it will force that junk into the surrounding tissues and just make the problem worse.
Avatar m tn My 16yr old Schiperkke was backed over by a neighbor on a cell phone. Dog went to vet and x-rays revealed nothing broken,"Her fat may have saved her life". While that is very funny, after a long recovery, she still has a mass where the tire pinched her butt to the ground.She gets along OK but now has poop sticking to her fur,as her tail is no longer inside her tail flap,(Skips don't have tails).So I deal with that. But a year later?, the flappy large area is still there. The Vet.
Avatar n tn Hello, I'm new to the group and thought I'd share my frustrations with you to see what you think. Last Friday night I noticed one small lump the size of a big marble located approximately 3 inches under my dog's (Dixie) right jaw and under the skin. I took her to the vet Sat. morning and they said it was an abscess and they gave me some antibiotics. They said if it gets bigger or doesn't seem to get smaller to bring her back on Monday.
Avatar n tn And a friend just told me her dog came home lethargic and not eating or drinking after a weekend visit with us (this was several months ago). She didn't connect it with the visit to us aside from thinking maybe my active girl had just been a little much for hers. I've already scoured my yard but will be doing it again today. I've looked at toxic plant lists but Lucy just does not tend to chew on plants, just grass. Still, if anybody has any ideas, I am wide open.
Avatar n tn I have just come back from the vet because my dog hasn't been eating for a couple of days and after a blood test, found out that he has a tumour in his liver. :-( The survival rate is very minimal apparently and they're taking him to a larger vet hospital tomorrow for some further scans. He stopped eating about a month ago and we took him to the vet then and he was given some tablets and had some injections. He recovered quickly and was eating normally until two days ago.
Avatar f tn Your story breaks my heart as I lost my 14-year-old dog, Chica, to this exact disease on January 4. The vomiting is so awful to watch in the end as it just goes on and on and on... There are many anti emetic meds to try. Has your vet not prescribed anything? Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood.
Avatar f tn About 3-4 days ago i noticed that he had a lump on the right side of his shaft, that goes down to his thigh sort of area... sort of inbetween the area... and it's gotten considerably bigger. My local vet is away for vaccation over the holidays.. and i'm not sure what this is, or what it could be. He doesn't seem to be in any pain, he's walking fine, peeing, pooping, eatting and all that good stuff but like i said, the mass is getting bigger.
Avatar n tn I dont think it is an ingrown hair because it is not painful. It feels like a mosquito bite. What could this be? I am 22 years old and had sex for the first time about 3 months ago with my boyfriend of over a year. I ruled out any sexual transmitted diseases because from what I know he doesnt have any, and if he did wouldn't sympotoms show after we had sex for the first time? Also, if this helps, I just finished my period today and thats when I noticed the bump...
Avatar m tn Hello, I have a 14 year old german sheppard/husky. This dog was very healthy for many years and because he is old now we've noticed a few problems. But a few days ago something happened and we don't know whats going on. He was sick for 2 days, throwing up and diarea. After that he seemed ok but all of a sudden he cannot walk. He tries but is very shaky and has extreme difficulty. This just happened in 1 day.
Avatar n tn It could be a mild ear infection, or something wrong with a could be a reaction to a scratch, bite or sting.... Do try to persuade your parents to let you take him back to the vet for a check. If the vet cannot find any obvious reason for the swollen glands, they will run a blood test to see if there'sany other cause. They don't do that during an ordinary annual health check usually.
Avatar n tn after my hysterectomy at 45yrs old I am gaining weight fast...never had mood swings or sweats...taking no harmones..does anything help?Trying all over the counter pills and etc. nothing working...HELP!!
Avatar n tn It started out with little pains in the back of my neck and near my shoulderblades and then moved to tingling in my left arm (I got the shot in my right arm). This all started about 5-6 hours after getting the shot. Mind you my right arm where I got the shot didnt even hurt! As the night progressed i started to get tingling in the tops of my feet and then in my lips and tip of tongue... This is when I went to the emergency room, because I thought was having an allergic reaction.
Avatar n tn My mother had breast AND kidney cancer, and I recently lost my father to metastatic colorectal cancer. That being said, after having pain in the area of my left ovary, an ultasound found that I have "something" growing on my left ovary. A repeat ultrasound showed that it is growing, and I was giving the choice to leave it and "watch it" or have it removed. I did have a CA-125 blood test, which was "normal".
Avatar f tn I took him to the vet because he kept pawing at his mouth after only a bite or 2 of food (even liquids) after exam, blood panel, and x-rays, it was determined he needed to have 10 extractions. Well he continued to paw at his mouth, a biopsy was done, results came back negative. So the rest of his teeth were removed. Its been 1 month and he is pawing at his mouth after 1 or 2 bites, and he runs and hides after eating.
Avatar n tn There was no evidence of a bite and I was not confinced but he put her on antibiotics and she recovered after about 7 days. I now feel that she is suffering from a second phantom pregnancy and this is her second case of Mastitis. I can not however find any reference to swollen neck glands in relation to Mastitus in dogs ( although I am pretty sure that I did when I had it ! ). Can anyone give me any advice. I am considering treating her with Clavamox.
Avatar n tn Here is the continuation of surfnsand247's original Tingling after Swine Flu Vaccine.
Avatar f tn Sorry your dog got injured. Bite wounds/puncture wounds can be deceiving. A dog's mouth is full of bacteria so the chance of infection is pretty high. Even though it may seem small on the surface, bacteria was surely introduced to the soft tissue. You can continue to wash it and keep it clean and use the antibiotic ointment but that is only getting the surface. I would discontinue the use of the Hydrogen Peroxide that often as it might make it worse.
162948 tn?1205256292 now am scared because I see that a lot of women have not been able to conceive after the mirena IUD removal... pls help!!! I have had it for 18 months and after all the crazy stories, I am thinking of having it removed :(.
Avatar f tn I have 8 days to my 1st beta test after my ET on Aug 12. Out of 11 mature eggs only 4 fert after icsi and only 1 viable embryo. I too had OHSS after egg retrieval and am really hoping that this works. So far no signs of period coming so keeping fingers crossed. Does anyone know how many days after ET a period will come if it didn't work?
Avatar n tn I started feeling sick every morning (gagging but not vomiting) starting at about 10 days after the procedure. I was confirmed pregnant on day 14 after the procedure by blood test. I had the symptoms before I was confirmed positive and I also thought they were in my head, but there could be more to it. I had a failed IUI a few months before and I did not have any symptoms at all. Good luck!
765439 tn?1292964014 Winston is 3 yrs old....and great pyrs are healthy dogs. well we went to the vet saturday after seeing a lump and the vet said it looked like a tick bite(i pulled what i thought was a tick off there so it makes sense) but to use antibiotic and it should heal in 72 hours. Well it never healed and we went back today because we found another round lump on his back leg!!!
1103110 tn?1341258099 I have tried everything to make him happy, but maybe it's just all the hard work he's been doing plus the holidays coming up and then after working he's got people contacting him to ask him to help them out, he's so tired. We went to KY to visit his sister, which I love going, but they had work for him also. But anyhow I have tried changing my looks, tried cleaning the house even down to moving furniture!
1032970 tn?1252476523 Just noticed a nickel sized hotspot on my 7 yr old cockers back left leg, near the knee. Then I noticed her licking that paw and discovered a red lump under one of the pads - size of a large pea and looks irritated, bled a few drops after she was licking. She walks fine and is acting/eating fine, but licks at both spots frequently. We started giving her a few new supplements about a month ago so think it could be a reaction to those - is this possible?
Avatar f tn my dog had puppies three weeks ago and now i have noticed that two of the puppies have large knots on the right side for their necks what is it and what can i do for them?
