I'm so sorry about the condition, This looks like a serious case and I would like to ask some further questions from you e.g deworming history, vaccination history etc, in order to get a clearer picture before I proceed. You can DM your whatsapp contact

I hope its not Brucellosis because it is difficult to eradicate once contracted and most of the drugs used to treat it are contraindicated in pregnant dogs example tetracycline etc. That was why I prescribed amoxicillin to you since its a very effective broad spectrum antibiotics especially in reproductive tract infection and most importantly safe for pregnant dogs. But if you suspect Brucellosis, then we may try enrofloxacin in replacement since its effective against Brucellosis and hopefully compatible with pregnancy. I hope this helps

Thanks boss

It parvo virus oooo just finally confimr. It now what is the best drugs to give

seunH:

I'm so sorry for the late response, in order to avoid misdiagnosis, can you please tell me other symptoms you are observing so that I can get a clearer picture of what is going on. Although from what I'm seeing, I can observe dermatitis which could be due to ectoparasites or allergy hence was wondering why the "vet guy" said its was going to go on its own, perhaps he is seeing what I ain't seeing !!! All the same I await your reply.


Okay Sir, thank You, no other symptoms orther than this although i dewormed him recently with pyretrin a tab a day for 3 days.. den i bought a spray like dat for him against thicks.. other than dat nothing again.. might i add i recently introduced this albiovit tab to him daily, its d first thing i give to him daily 1 tab..

This is a very severe case and requires professional intervention in a vet clinic as soon as possible. I'll will prescribe some drugs you would use for the meantime to stabilize your dog while you prepare to take him to the vet clinic. I'm so sorry once more

Okay, I now understand. Since you are not seeing improvement and rather it is spreading, please tell your vet to administer Ivermectin inj, the reason is to rule out the possibility of any ectoparasite. Secondly, go to to any pharmacy and get an antiinflammatory cream/lotion and apply topically to the affected area. Then lastly get Amoxicillin, 1 tab once a day, to combat any ongoing systemic infection. You can supplement all the above with multivitamins like b-complex and Vit C. Please also ensure your environment is also clean and let's observe for 2 days. I hope this helps?

From a veterinary perspective, considering the age of your dog (puppy stage) fattening shouldn't be a priority for now, the puppy stage is a critical period of a dog's life cycle as it requires more nutrition especially protein, hence priority would be meals rich in; (a) Animal protein like boiled meat, chicken, fish etc (b) Vitamins like fruits (carrot etc) and vegetables (spinach "efo" etc) (c) High calorie meals like rice, beans etc. However since its a growing pup, bias should be towards proteinous meals over high calorie meals since it would need more protein for growth and repair of body tissues. But if you want to save yourself all the above stress, you can just simply walk into any pet food shop and tell them the age of your pup, they would recommend and give you an appropriate ready made pet food suitable for your pup, however since you said "enugbe", ill advice against it because some of the feeds are quite expensive moreover I'm not too comfortable with such arrangement because such pet foods are usually canned and contain preservatives.
I hope this help

It is possible sir, depending on its genetic makeup, but personally to me, this pup looks older than 3 weeks (I may be wrong though)

Hi guys, this thread was created to answer any question relating to your animal health, be it pet or livestock and also enlighten the public about the veterinary profession generally especially for those seeking a career in the veterinary profession. Please feel free to send your questions and hopefully you will get your answers asap. Occasionally we would invite senior consultants to shed light on knotty issues. Thank you

Well done Sir,
Will be glad if you enlighten me,
I intend getting a puppy soonest, from my little research, when one gets a new puppy, I read that one should vaccinate and deworm the puppy.
Sir pls what does vaccination entails, can you explain in clear terms and if possible cost to vaccinate a puppy
Also is it possible to have a dog free of sickness and diseases, if yes, what can one do to have a healthy dog

Congratulations in advance sir, having a dog is a very wonderful experience but for you to enjoy this experience several factors has to be in place. First of all, you should ask yourself, why do you want to have a dog? is it for companionship, security or breeding business? That will determine the managemental system you want to use, for example intensive, semi intensive etc. The next thing is the dog's welfare, Our professor in school used to tell us that "what is convenient for you is also convenient for animals and vice versa, always put these animals in your shoes and you'll get the best out of them". Hence you must vaccinate, in order to prevent them from vaccinable diseases like parvo, rabies etc (I'll send you the vaccine schedule later). The price of the vaccine varies and I can't use my clinic to judge since the vaccines there are heavily subsidized (Government owned clinic). But if you want to vaccinate, I'll advice you go to a Government owned vet hospital (Its cheaper and safer).
Then you must also deworm, in order to prevent intestinal parasites (worms) which may cause harm to your pet, deworming is very cheap but ensure you use Albendazole based dewormers like worm off® etc.
Lastly if you follow all the above points and in addition keeping your environment clean with your pet eating a good and nourishing foods with regular checkups by a vet, God willing you will raise an healthy dog that won't give you hassles. I hope this helps

Thanks Boss, I really appreciate, I'll surely take to your advice when I get the puppy. I'd still be grateful if you still send the vaccine schedule.

That is the vaccination schedule below, there may be slight variation, depending on the Vet and other peculiar conditions

6 — 8 weeks Distemper, parvovirus
10 — 12 weeks DHPP (vaccines for distemper, adenovirus [hepatitis], parainfluenza, and parvovirus)
16 — 18 weeks DHPP, rabies
12 — 16 months DHPP, rabies
Every 1-3 years- Rabies
Every 1-2 years- DHPP

As at on Sunday my boerboel was acting funny , as at that period , I decided to speak to Dr seun
He ask me some few questions which was responded by me then he prescribed some drugs, on Tuesday morning I had to call again to inform him about the progress and what I felt was wrong from some of the new symptoms my dog showed, he asked for the steps taken when I noticed all this, which I responded then he recommend additional drug which finally stopped my dog vomiting issue bcoz he was already weak, I was already planning to Take him to the clinic for parvo test as suggested by Dr seun if no improvement that day becoz the symptoms ar closely related to parvo ie diarrhea, inappetence, lethargy, fever.
On that same Tuesday afternoon/evening my dog started responding to treatment, by next day my dog was able to gather little energy after hand feeding him and he eat with out vomiting for the very first time since on Sunday morning
To cut story short, on Thursday my dog was fully ok bcoz he was already barking and charging @ one of our guest, his urine was normal unlike before that it was dark yellow, appetite was back to normal.
I just want to use this medium to say a very big thank you to Dr seun bcoz if not for him and God I don't what could have happened to my dog.

I'm so sorry, why not simply get an acaricidal bath solution and bath your dog with it, and in addition ivermectin inj by your vet or a trained professional. You can also get fipronil spray for prophylaxis
Re: Talk To A Veterinarian by lildavey(m): 2:40pm On Oct 02, 2020

Re: Talk To A Veterinarian by seunH: 3:54pm On Oct 02, 2020

The best is the use of cypermetrin plus ivermectin injection.

Hello, I've got a dog with one of it's ear swollen with fluid in it but no physical injury. What could be the cause and how do you suggest it be treated?

I anticipate your response, thanks in advance.
