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!

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
