Throat infection on dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection on dogs


Avatar n tn My dog has a chronic throat infection since 8mo. and is now 4 yrs old. It's very bad again. She's had scopes down throat, cultures, blood tests and taken to Michigan State Small Animal Hospital for cat scan and more tests. Antibiotics don't totally clear it and it comes back. I almost wonder if it' ever goes away, but that possibly the antibiotics, pain med, and antibiotics helps it get better for awhile but not enough to totally clear the problem.
793908 tn?1294705109 I adopted my dogs & they came from Mena Arkansas. They came here by Dog Transport Truck, which is A/C & climate controled & music for them & food & water & they stop every 100 miles on a ranch to walk the dogs. I paid $125.00 for that service & they delivered Chanel to Parcippany N.J. & Sara to Nanuet N.Y.. They came 2 wks apart. Both places were easy to get to. Orbax was for germs or whatever may have been causing her to cough. It did NOT work.

Avatar n tn The cloudy eyes could be Keratitis which is inflammation of the cornea in which the cornea becomes cloudy, resulting in loss loss of eye transparency. Now there are many different forms of Keratitis. All types of keratitis must be treated by a vet. Have you had him checked out? The soft throat could be a Soft palate disorder. It's an abnormality of the tissue in the back of a dogs throat.
Avatar f tn On Aug. 31st my dog was diagnosed with Kidney Failure. Her creatinine was at a 8. As of almost 2 weeks ago it went down to a 2. I have been giving her 6 cc's of fluid subcutaneously. As also Aluminum Hydroxide Gel, USP 5 mL after she eats. Along with PancrePlus as she basically has chronic pancreatitis since 2011 and I can only feed her either boiled chicken & rice or science diet I/D or she starts to tremble in pain.
Avatar n tn Inflammation makes that skin more porous allowing bacteria already there to penetrate more deeply into the skin than is normal and infection may ensue. The infection may include bacteria, yeast or both. A MAJOR contributing factor to the severity of the "ear infection" signs an owner may see is the degree of self-trauma caused by the dog itself.
1310633 tn?1430224091 I'm not sure who else to ask besides my MH friends, so here goes (this may be a REALLY stupid question, so don't flame me if it is;-)... I have a pretty bad case of strep-throat at the moment, and I've been really careful about steering clear of my wife so I don't pass it along to her (been taking antibiotics since yesterday evening, but the symptoms persist). Question: Is it possible that I'll pass strep-throat along to my dogs?
1974283 tn?1425609124 She started antibiotic treatment and medicam 5 days ago (she also had a throat infection). She still eats and drinks fine. She still has energy and wants to play with the other dogs. Of course the concerning part is shes bringing up the mucus and phlegm in her lungs from the kennel cough. She has done this about a dozen times today. Does this just mean it's starting to break up and it's clearing away.
Avatar f tn Hi there! I'm over on the Dogs forum and someone pointed me to your question. I hope your dog is doing better by now. Did the symptoms finally get any better? Ear infections can do the same things to dogs as to humans. If the inner ear is involved, keeping balanced can be a problem. Can't imagine how much more difficult that would be on 4 legs instead of 2! Also, did the symptoms show up after any medication?
Avatar n tn s a gland up, there is a reason WHY that gland has come up. Often, infection or injury on the limb, or area nearest to the gland is the cause, but there are internal problems which could cause a gland to swell, which you couldn't see. If ALL his glands are up then that points to quite a serious infection or something similar which is affecting his whole system. Just one gland, and it is likely to be something wrong in some part of his body nearest to that gland.
Avatar n tn s in both ears, it could be caused by allergies or he could have a yeast infection in his ears. A yeast infection, while not as easy to clear up as a run-of-the-mill ear infection, CAN be cured with medication. If it's allergies, however, it can be more difficult to treat because the first step in treating symptoms caused by allergies is to eliminate the allergen, which can be like looking for a needle in a haystack.
Avatar n tn There is a reddish pigment in the tears of many dogs called porphorin. The coloration exists in dogs with all color coats, but it just cannot be seen in darker coated dogs. Porphorin shows up as reddish "gubers" when the pigment becomes concentrated in light colored coats. This has no relationship to the anal glands or the nails. Nasal folds can become infected by a dark reddish brown or black yeast called malassezia pachydermatitis.
741741 tn?1294284010 She has had a ton of ear problems ever since we had her spayed. Well her left ear has swollen shut and she is on CEPHALEXIN for that until the vet can actually see in her ear. We have been dealing with this for about 5 years now and nothing we have done has worked. Anyway my problem atm is that she will not take her meds. She is very smart and because she knows that we have pills for her she will not eat anything! ANYTHING!
Avatar f tn 30), I went to my room to check up on her and I saw that her THROAT was swollen (mostly on her left side). I rushed her to the emergency vet, the vet began checking everything, she said that she has a mild fever. When she was looking and touching her neck she couldnt understand what the cause and didnt know what was swollen. I then remember that my other dog (chihuahua) had fake pregnancy before and started to milktate and I noticed that her breast wore swollen.
Avatar n tn Nutrition Smart, and asked them what I could do for my dogs ear infection. I think my dog has allergies and his ears hurt...but his ears are fairly clean all of the time. There was a lady customer who heard me asking the clerk about ear infections. So in lieu of hearing me,, she said I use Oregano oil for my ear she explained how to use it. Let me say that this works! Take a coffee mug.. mix 50% / 50% of oregano oil and olive oil.
Avatar n tn My dog has what seems to be an abscess on his neck. It's underneath on the side. I only noticed when petting him. It doesn't seem to hurt him, he still has 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 m tn My neck does get tight and my wife who is a massage therapist, performs deep tissue massages on me and it does help relive the headaches, but not the overall pressure I experience. I do suffer with seasonal allergies from pollen etc... but I dont have any other allergy type symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, running nose, congestion, etc...My question is, can one have sinus problems due to say pet dander and allergies without all the other typical allergy symptoms?
Avatar f tn She has had congestion, runny nose, sneezing, wheezing, and what sounds phlegm in her throat. The vet has prescribed an antihistamine and a steroid when necessary. The antihistamine does not seem to be working anymore and we don't like to give the steroid unless necessary. Can you tell me what other options are available?
Avatar f tn Hello Back in may my wife had a cough and red but not sore or painful throat, she had green mucus in her nose as well. She saw our doc around 5/15 & the doctor told ger it was allergies to go home and take flonaise. So she did but it did not get better. So she revisitef our doc who thenprescribed amoxacillin twice a day for 10 days. Her throat did seem to get better, gowecer it is still a little red now but no pain and has becer had fecer from any of this.
Avatar f tn The uterine infection is called a pyometra. This is a serious uterine infection. Did your vet do abdominal X-Rays to check her uterus? Your dog may need long term antibiotic therapy or may even need to be spayed to clear up a bad pyometra. The increased drinking is a classic sign of pyometra. I am very happy that her blood work is good and that she has no other organ problems, it also means that she is a good candidate for surgery.
203342 tn?1328737207 I just got back from seeing a doctor and after going over my blood result tests he believes a lot of my throat issues (raspy voice, achy feeling and/or lump feeling at the base of my throat) is due to an infection on my thyroid and once we clear that up I should be fine. My TSH levels were within normal but my T3 and T4 were high. He retested to make sure I don't have Graves and that came back negative.
Avatar f tn I have been cleaning his ears with an antibacterial, antifungal solution for dogs. Is there anything else I can do?
Avatar m tn I just have an annoying wheeze in my throat. My asthma has been great for months, ever since I moved to florida. I just started on my singulair the other day, and I am on astmanex 220mcg, I think. I just got off of Amoxolcilin, due to a sinus infection. I cough up a lot of mucus, I feel it right now in my throat. Could it be from my drip? or could it actually be my asthma again?
1450842 tn?1287452262 Hi my dog has ear problem she is on otmax i think it is for fungel infection, not sure. i was wondering if i can catch fungus on my skin from my dog?
Avatar n tn Took her to the Vet and ran some blood tests, kidnes, liver, diabetes are fine but there seems to be a problem with her blood count, vet says it could be because of a slight infection in her cheek but her stomach is also bloated and it could be Pyo - infection of the uterus. Please Help, I do not have any insurance for her and the bills are frigtening me.
