    Post  wildman on Mon Apr 28, 2014 12:07 am

    ive got a 1yr old plot female bout 40lbs who apparently has a abses on her head from something.. I thought she just rolled off her house, but now her eye is swollen shut. im going to give her some penicillian but wasn't sure how much to give her, also is there any places around here that sell terramycin before I order it online..

    I agree....most abscesses need to be lanced and drained..penicillin will help but won't fix problem until drained.....most likely a saliva duct plugged....common in feeding commercial dog foods...corn based foods is problematic causing a small grain to get plugged in gland....or often a sliver of wood......a vet will better determine cause and proper treatment..... lancing it will be best, sometimes these thing just appear and are usually just fluid filled and will quickly recover once drained.....some vets will opt to leave a tube in to allow everything to properly drain and treat with a bit more aggressive antibiotic.......

    My copper dog had the Same thing a few weeks ago, prob a sliver of wood from something, his got really big, it finally broke on its own,I put him on cephalexin for ten days twice a day, it's a good antibiotic, he's back to normal, also Terramycin is available at tractor supply, just try to keep the wound clean if possable, hope this helps

    Recommend a broader spectrum antibiotic but if that's all you have use it. I usually give 1 to 1 1/2cc for a few days. But it would be better to find the problem first then to cover it up with antibiotic or the swelling will only return.
