My nephews dog had a scratch on her lower front leg about 5

My nephews dog had a scratch on her lower front leg about 5 or 6 weeks ago. Not bad at first, but she has been licking it aggravating it terriblyJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: No it started above the first joint, you could see where maybe berry vines scratched or something like that, simple at first. She pit bull you know hardly any hair, sensitive skin. I wasn't around to see how quickly it worsened. He didn't stop her from constantly licking. So a few days ago I got her the plastic collar to stop that. Got Cut-Heal brand medication (I've had great luck with my animals on it) also an aerosol can stuff with lidocaine. She was improving but today he says she much worse her leg is red as is her lips and anal area. A reaction to either med? Or as soon as I left he removed the collar because she looks so miserable? He called for help and admits to having removed it "only 10 minutes ago"JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about for?Customer: Such as?

My 11 year old Golden Retriever has been to the vet recently

My 11 year old Golden Retriever has been to the vet recently for coughing, running nose, lick granuloma, scratching his face and under his chin. The vet put him on a regiment of prednisone when he has completed and Cephalexin 500 mg and cephalexin 250 mg 1 tablet each twice a day. He has stopped scratching and everything seemed to be going well until he started not wanting to eat. He loved treats and now doesn't seem to want to eat, he has trouble getting up and at times seems weak to the point that he can't seem to stand.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?Customer: HudsonJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Hudson?Customer: He had a complete examination along with a senior blood profile and everything seem to come back normal.

I have a 5 year old Great Dane that has a swollen right

I have a 5 year old Great Dane that has a swollen right hock. The swelling is predominantly on the medial side of either the distal tibia or the proximal fibula. When palpated, the swelling is hard and immovable. He presents with no pain when palpated, nor is he limping. He has, however, given himself a lick granuloma approximately 2 inches below the swollen joint, on the lateral side. I have lost a Dane to cancer before, and I am well aware that Danes are more likely than smaller breeds to develop bone cancer. I will be taking him into the vet this week, but I am hoping my mind is just going to the worst possible scenario and there are other reasons besides osteosarcoma or chondrosarcoma for the swelling.
