Elly had surgery 8 days ago tumor removal and the abdominal

Elly had surgery 8 days ago for fatty tumor removal and the abdominal incision has gotten infected. The wound has seeped and dripped from when we picked her up the day of surgery. We have had her back to the vet twice and her antibiotic has been changed 3 times. They tell us it has to heal from the inside out. At first it was just a couple staples that had torn the flesh and the vet saw this. The skin has now torn from about 6 staples and the opening is now gaping approx 1 1/2 inches. Also there is a piece of skin hanging down from the side of the opening about the same length. I'm afraid that this is just going to continue. Is this fairly common treatment or is it time to find another vet? We have had someone with Elly watching her 1:1 since she was brought home. She has her cone and has been confined to one room with activity restrictions. I have pics but can't get them to paste in this window.

Boston Terrier puppy 3 1/2 weeks old being weened from

Boston Terrier puppy 3 1/2 weeks old being weened from mother first diagnosed with an enlarged esophagus. Barium swallow test was conducted and determined not to be.Symtoms: once done eating, it seems the dog is having the food repeat on him. Eventually it appears to be distressed, snorts, sneezes and fluid sometimes clear, sometimes white muicussy in nature appears in his nose. We have a suction ball which we use to clean the nostrils. He carries on like this for 10 to 15 minutes then gets very tired. Stools are solid, urine yellow yet strong in smell. Puppy has been dewormed. He was never a good feeder as a pup and is about half the size of his sibblings. Appears weak and wobley. My wife is feeding him a vet recommended puppy recovery food about every 2 to 3 hours, a thick consistency with little water. I think we are loosing the battle and are looking for other possible diagnosis. Thank you.

Dog is currently in a pet hospital due to persistent

Dog is currently in a pet hospital due to persistent vomiting after eating. Vomit usually includes copious quantities of "white foam". Still looking to determine what part of the GI tract is the problem. Dog recently had stomach surgery (5/30) and obstruction removed from esophagus (food bollop). Dog is also recovering from pneumonia. Dog's appetite is healthy but cannot hold down food as within seconds a gag reflex is triggered. What are your thoughts?

My dog has pretty severe blepharitis and conjunctivitis. She

My dog has pretty severe blepharitis and conjunctivitis. She has been on 7 days of oral clavamox and 7 days of tobramycin drops. I also am giving her 10 mg of benedryl a day.After 7 days - there is some improvement - but not dramatic. Is this normal - or should I stop the tobramycin and use some Terramycin ophthalmic ointment to see if that antibiotic works better. I do not have a vet right now - my vet of 12 years suddenly shut down his practice do to illness - so I'm trying to do this myself. So - my question is - since the tobramycin does not seem to be dramatically working - would it be ok to stop the tobramycin and try terramycin?
