My dog, a shepard mix, has developed small lumps of various

Customer Question

Hi Pearl,
JA: What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: My dog, a shepard mix, has developed small lumps of various sizes on and around her ears and the space between the ears. She will rub her head on the door jamb to itch herself. If fleas don't burrow, what does? Thank you for your time.
JA: OK. 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: Nikhol
JA: Huh?
Customer: Her name is ***** ***** she is 11. Unfortunately, she is beginning to lose her strength in her back hips as well, I fear I might be facing an awful decision, soon.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Kokobella?
Customer: She has UTI's. I have her on a penicillan program with ibuprofen and AZO. I stagger it all so it isn't hard on her system.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) When did the bumps begin?
2) Is your veterinarian prescribing the ibuprofen and AZO treatments?
3) How much does she weigh?
4) How much ibuprofen is being given? How often is the AZO being given? How much of each?
