I have a 7 month old Rat Terrier puppy and he's been sick since I got him. First he was diagnosed with lymes disease and put on antibiotics, he finally got back to his happy playful self after about 3 weeks. About a month after that I noticed he wasn't playing, eating or barking...again. I though for sure it was the lymes acting up and so we put him back on the meds, but then I realized he was still moving ok and wasn't crying whenever I picked him up. So I suspected that there was something else wrong with him. I checked him all over and discovered that he had a bump on the left side of his throat. It felt almost like an absess, but after researching it I think it may be a lymph node. He progressively got worse and I finally took him to the vet. The vet wasn't sure what was wrong either but put him on amoxicillin just in case. After about 3 days I noticed he's playing more and he barked for the first time in 2 weeks today but immediately coughed afterwards, I have also noticed that bump on his throat isn't changing in size. Will that come later? I'm just wondering is this amoxicillin gonna help him? Is he facing some other kind of sickness? He's just a baby and we don't have allot of money for vet bills. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
