Customer Question
Hello, my dog has...

Hello, my dog has a history of ear infections. He just completed 10 days on Antrirobe/25mg. and daily application of Posatex and Benadryl for allergies. His lymph nodes are still swollen. My vet suggests a biopsy to rule out cancer; Is there another antibiotic that can be used before putting my 12 year old Pancho through this ordeal? Thank you!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infections your 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?

Panco

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Panco?

He has been treated for allergies and bathed with KetoHex. He has back issues and is given 25 mg tramadol as needed.

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

I think what your veterinarian is saying is that the lymph nodes are not related to the ear infections necessarily.

I have maneged thousands of dogs with ear infections and cannot recall the last time I had one with lymphadenopathy.
