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 ****

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
