My nine yr old golden has been suffering from what his vet

My nine yr old golden has been suffering from what his vet called a skin infection. It is characterized by patches of hair loss and bumps that feel like scabs. I've been somewhat successful in treating the areas with hydrogen peroxide. I have an extensive landscaping in my back yard. I recently had it "cleaned up" and landscaped. Almost immediately my dog had an attack of this infection in several areas over his body. I'm a microbiologist by training hence the use of H2O2. Is there something that I can use that would bring faster and perhaps longer lasting treatment?

Ugh! I didn't read the Rx label close enough and gave my dog

Ugh! I didn't read the Rx label close enough and gave my dog one whole pill of 100mg Cefpodoxime instead of 1/2 a pill, 3 hours ago. He's a king Charles spaniel weighing 16.9lbs. So far he seems fine. No lethargy or vomiting. He's eating and drinking fine. How worried should I be? What are the chances it will be a problem?

My dog Sammy has been suffering from Blepharitis

My dog Sammy has been suffering from Blepharitis for almost 2 months now. It started out as a small bump over one eyelid and has progressed to severe inflammation in both eyes, upper and lower lids. At his first vet appointment she prescribed Cefpodoxime Proxetil 100mg (1/2 tab once a day for 2 weeks) and NeoPolyDex. Little to no improvement was seen. Went back and he was given Clindamycin 150mg once a day for 2 weeks. I held off on giving it to him at first to see if a change back to his old diet would help (he'd recently been switched to another food shortly before the problem started). Still no improvement so I started the antibiotics. We only have 4 days left of them. I've also been doing moist heat twice a day and cleaning his lids with an eyelid cleaner recommended for blepharitis. We've tried allergy medicines as well (Zyrtec and Claritin). His eyes look worse than ever. At his last appointment the vet took a scraping of his lids and she said he did not have mites there and she actually saw very little bacteria so she was thinking it to be allergy related- she didn't send the slides off to a lab, just looked at them under the microscope herself. Here's the thing....I recently lost his sister to lymphoma so I'm hyper paranoid about anything in regards ***** ***** Tonight I was looking up information about blepharitis and one website mentioned lymphoma in the eyelids. Needless to say, I started looking that up, found some pics that kind of looked like what he has and now I'm totally freaked out. What are the possibilities that is what we're dealing with? Would the vet have been able to see any cancer cells on the slide she took? He had full blood work and all was okay. I know you can't see cancer on blood work but I thought it was worth mentioning. I'm going to attempt to attach some pictures- on one you will see the original bump that appeared and on the others you can see how it looks today. unfortunately because the only way to get a decent pic is with the flash I could not get one with his eyes open.
