Sadie, female, 9 yr. old spayed, in relatively good health,

Sadie, female, 9 yr. old spayed, in relatively good health, having had a nail bed melanoma removed last year. She is on the melanoma vaccine, (4 x last fall, booster in April) When she had the melanoma, she had a bad 'doggie' odor that went away after her surgery. (odor happened in August). This August, the odor came back. She swims frequently in the ocean and is always showered off after the swim. The second issue is that two days ago we noticed a red 'coating' on the left eye, toward the nose corner, and about 2/3 the size of a dime. She evidences no pain, no tearing, no rubbing, and no obvious swelling. I am not sure if it is reducing her vision in the left eye. So, my two questions are, does this odor indicate another melanoma cancer somewhere, and what is this red coating in her eye?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: SadieJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sadie?Customer: She is the best dog we ever had - smart, loving, obedient. But then she is a Golden Retreiver. She still runs with us 3 x day. (we do not run very fast, being in our 70's)

I am doggy sitting for a friend that is out of town. The dog

I am doggy sitting for a friend that is out of town. The dog is a rescue. Looks like a Shi Tzu and Maltese mix. She is on medication for it. They told her it was elephantitis due to people smoking in the home. Never heard of that, so I was doing checking online. They have her on Enroflaxin 22.7 mg; 1 1/2 tablet every 24 hours and Ketoconazole 200 mg 1/4 tablet every 24 hours. Plus Sorolan Drops 15ml; 5 drops twice daily for 7 days. They also said she has a skin yeast infection. Looks and smells like it. Was prescribed on 7/29. I started taking care of her on the 30th. Skin redness is much reduced today. Is the elephantiasis caused by a parasite or can it be caused by tobacco? Just wondering if I should keep her off of furniture if it is contagious. Sweet younger dogJA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?Customer: DaisyJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Daisy?Customer: The meds were prescribed by a Veterinarian

My wheaten terrier is 5 now is is having major hot spots.

Hello, my wheaten terrier is 5 now is is having major hot spots. May have a fungal yeast infection. Chews at paw, his underside around his penis and inner thighs are covered in now black yeasty bumps or scabs.I switche vets recently after being dissatisfied with antibiotic rounds that were not getting rid of problem. Every time Tahoe came back from being groomed, he would have another skin issue. I recently switched to a raw food diet thinking that would help and I now have a holistic vet. We are working on it but I'd love your opinion.Allison
