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 ****

Hello, I am living in Liberia, West Africa for a year and there are no veterinarians in the country. I have a small puppy whose fur is coming coming out in chunks at an alarming rate. A man (not a vet) came twice and gave him injections of invermectin, but it hasn't helped. I think it's mange, but I'm not sure. Do you have any suggestions about how I can help my puppy?
Nice to see you online. This is a busy month with questions.
Hi Dr Peter - nice to see you online. This is a busy month with questions. Ivan was going to run over to a dead small animal in the yard today and I grabbed him by the collar. Even though he is smaller and lighter than Effie - when he gets willful, heis strong. They both have harnesses for walks so I don't strangle them - but Ivan has been coughing on and off since I brought him into the house. Do you think I did ANY damage?? Thank you again for your time
My toy poodle was attacked by a German Shepard dog which tore the skin off her neck, backView more dog veterinary questions
My toy poodle was attacked by a German Shepard dog which tore the skin off her neck, back and chest requiring 36 stitches to repair, broke her jaw in 2 places (which is miraculously healing without intervention) and caused nerve damage on the left hand side of her face which prevents her from blinking.She is recovering well, but has an abscess on her eye which can't blink, this is being treated with antibiotic eye drops and lubrication eye drops. If she doesn't regain the ability to blink and produce tears she will most likely have to loose the eye (which works). Out vet is happy to leave it for a period of time provided the eye health doesn't deteriorate. Do you have any idea what kind of time it takes for nerves around the eye to heal (if they do)? Is there anything we can do other than keep ontop of the eyedrops?
