Antibiotics question

5 posts in this topic

Our nine year old lab had a nasty uterine infection, and required surgery. While they were at it, they removed her benign mammary tumors. She was put on antibiotics for 10 days, but that was increased when she had her stitches taken out due to an incision area infection. She has not had a change in food during this time with the exception of canned food used to give her the meds.

When we brushed her yesterday, she had a ton of dander all over her body, which is unusual for her. Could this be the result of being on antibiotics so long, or the spaying?

My guess is not so much the antibiotics but rather the trauma to the body and the fact it used up a lot of it's reserves for fighting the infection.

There are specific dog shampoos for cleaning the skin and reducing the dander. Look into one of those. I'm sure as she gains her strength back and regains her health, her skin and coat will return to normal.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the reply.

I used an oatmeal shampoo on her this afternoon, which seemed to help with the itching. We'll give her another bath in a few days if it will help her out.

you can also put some plain old neosporin (sp) on it. She will try and lick it off but when we had our lab fixed, we fitted a pair of drawers to fit him. Wore them mostly at night but would keep them on during the day. My lab is dealing with kennel cough right now, what a nasty virus. He is on antibiotics for 3 weeks, plus sedative to help him relax. Hope your pup gets well soon. also if you can give her some yorgurt that will help with the good things the drug takes out. I give my pup a 1/4 plain or flavored depending on what we have at home.

I have been using a spray on antibiotic on her incision sites. She is pretty close to being all healed there. She had to have a couple of drainage ports put in where the tumors were removed, and those are the last areas to heal.

Hadn't thought about the yogurt. She had room clearing gas last night, which she hasn't had in awhile, so I'll try the yogurt. Thank you!

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.

    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
