Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Ugh. Mad So let me start off by saying that this ordeal has been going on for a few weeks. I took him in to the vet when I first noticed a raised area on his chin, still had all the fur on it and was the size of a penny. He diagnosed it as a bacterial infection and gave me Muricin to put on it twice a day.

This is it now...





So I took him back in this morning to see his primary veterinarian Dr. Larsson, and guess what?! it's NOT a bacterial infection It's either a fungal infection or a histiocytoma, so he's doing a fungal culture right now. bounce Putting Nolvasan on it in the meantime. Next time I'm taking him to his primary (my boss) the first time - lesson learned. My poor bubbies. Crying or Very sad

Thanks Melissa! I hope so too! He's been rubbing it on everything, so if it is fungal... ugh, I really don't want ringworm again... No

I just realized that he has some dribble-ige right above it...attractive Kale... Rolling Eyes

Poor Kale. Sad I hope he gets better soon. If nothing else, he looks really silly like that. Poor boy.

I was really nervous when I found out a different vet than her usual one was going to be doing Callie's but he turned out to be great. I wish that was the case for you Sad

I hope they get back to you soon with what's wrong. Poor baby. I know what it's like to have a pup that's itching and you've got no clue why. I just googled the histiocytoma (bad idea btw) and that sounds scary. I hope it turns out to be something that can be treated easily and heals up fast!

I work with both vets (animal nurse/RVT), I just like Dr. Larsson better (for good reason obviously haha) The other Dr is actually the practice owner silent lol I'll be keeping a close eye on the culture at work lol Should get the results within 5-10 days. bounce

Callie's regular vet owns the practice and at first I wasn't fond of him so I completely understand that haha. He's made his way onto my good side though. I think at first he was just kind of judgmental because of my age and my little byb puppy. But I think I've proven to be a pretty capable parent.

That seems like such a long wait. I hope the "in the meantime" treatment helps while you wait for the answer!

Me too! If it's not one thing... it's another. He just got over a case of Colitis from eating cat poo.

No growth yet... one more week. The assistant that was working when I took him in didn't put the culture in the cabinet (they need to be in the dark) so that may be why. One more week to go, so we'll see what happens! Shocked
