  • I took my dog to the vet today. His one eye is very swollen, fluid coming out of his ear,

    I took my dog to the vet today. His one eye is very swollen, fluid coming out of his ear, does not want to eat. swollowing his food whole. It happened within three days that his eye got so messed up. He has been geting around fine otherwise. I live up in rural Maine. My issue is she gave him nothing today. Said I needed to see a specialist because she believes it is a tumor behind the eye. She never took exrays or even looked in his ear. The specialist is 4 hour s away in Portland. It happened so fast. I don't see how in three days it could be a tumor. I think he has a infection. Maybe even a tooth problem. He is a older cocker spaniel about 38 pounds. I was wondering if I could give him some amoxicillin to see if the swelling goes down?
