Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am sorry to hear of this diagnosis. I know this can be challenging to manage, is your veterinarian treating with steroids?The fluid can occur as a result of lymph edema, basically the connection between lymph nodes is not moving readily and so there can be swelling of limbs and certain areas of the body that can come and go. I am glad it was a good day, perhaps starting him on famotidine (pepcid) over the counter 0.25 mg/ pound every 12 hours will help reduce the nausea and vomiting he is experiencing whether he is on steroids or not...I hope this information is helpful but please let me know how else I can assist you both today
