My dog's eyes are swollen shut, at first it was one eye and

HiJA: Hi. What seems to be the problem?Customer: My dog's eyes are swollen shut, at first it was one eye and we took him to the vet that day. they prescribed the oral medication and some eye drops. didn't help. it spread to the second eye and for over 2 weeks now his eyes havent improved even with the medication. They're both swollen shut. At times, especially in the morning he will open his eyes and I can see a film over his eyes, but both his eyes now have it and it seems their is blood all over the pupil? no sign of blindness, just itches a lot and sneezes it out as he itches his eyesJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Assad and he's 13 months nowJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Assad?Customer: thats all

My 7 month old bulldog has a huge lump on side of face as

My 7 month old bulldog has a huge lump on side of face as big as a baseball now. It started last night. It is hard as a rock.She had a similar situation 2 weeks ago but not this big and a steroid shot relieved the swelling in 12 hoursAnd before that about three weeks same thingI'm beginning to think there is an infection that has not been addressed and it is reoccurring because only dex shots have been given for treatment thus farIs this life threatening? I'm afraid with how much swelling and how hard it is that it may bust her eardrum or eye socket out or even close her airway

My name is ***** *****. I am the charge nurse in a First

My name is ***** *****. I am the charge nurse in a First Nations community where we are far away from any city. Community member came to me asking for my help with his 20km Pit Bull Husky mix. 5day hx of swollen L side of his neck now radiating to the R. Appears to have dental abscess that is worsening. Fri gave his master 2 & 1/2 baby ASA bid. The nurses assess & give courses of meds to Pt here. So we have a pharmacy. I have helped dogs in the past but non of the vets seem to want to help without seeing this animal. He is suffering & only want to help. Can you advice what antibiotic & what dose to give. We have suspension. If I don't help this dog will become septic. Thank you.***** *****(c), NIC ****
