This 8 month old puppy has been seen by the vet 2 days after adoption from the shelter who told me she had been covered with ticks and fleas, was a stray, and was emaciated. The vet did a cbc and reported to me that the puppy was very low on white blood cells and had only 1/2 the volume of blood necessary. I was told to give her prescribed liquid vitamins twice a day, keep her quiet and allow her to eat Science Diet puppy formula. That was 4 days ago. The puppy eats well and appears to be filling out. Today I found swollen glands on either side of her jaw. Should I be concerned? What should I do?
Hi, my pup is a mix breed boxer and shar pei 8 months old. We noticed he is has an alergic reaction to mosquitoes and something else. He get these little bumps on him, after he has been outside. Not a big deal I guess... it is when he gets this one huge one on the side of his neck the size of a large golf ball from his lymph node I would guess? This has happened twice now and worries me. It doesn't hurt him as far as I can tell. He plays, eats and drinks just fine. We were told to give him benadryl. Kinda scary for us cause we cannot afford the vet bills with me only working 2 days a week... his name is Bruno and he has a sister Daisy who has no reactions to anything so far. Thank you. Jeromy
