They will eventually break open and discharge small amounts of pus. The bony changes and swelling can affect the alignment of teeth or cause teeth to be lost as the disease progresses, which can make chewing difficult. No treatments are available to effectively cure lumpy jaw, which means infected animals need to be sent for slaughter before they lose significant body condition. A veterinarian may use intravenous sodium iodide or other injectable antibiotic therapies to attempt to slow the progression of the disease, but these therapies will not cure it. Wooden tongue is caused by a different species of bacteria, which also invades the soft tissue of the mouth through abrasions caused by rough feed and abrasive pasture plant species.
Wooden tongue often appears in beef cows on pasture. These animals are often first noticed because they are losing weight. A closer examination will reveal they have excessive salivation and may make chewing motions without having feed present. The tongue will be swollen and large and there may be swelling on the underside of the jaw region. The cow will often appear in pain if its tongue is manipulated, and there may be nodules or ulcers on the sides of the tongue. Several treatments can be recommended by a veterinarian, but injections of sodium-iodide or an antibiotic such as penicillin or oxytetracycline are the most common.
Unlike lumpy jaw, these animals will show significant signs of improvement in 24 to 48 hours after treatment. Abscesses are another common cause of swellings around the head and jaw area. They are caused by a variety of bacteria, including the same bacteria that can cause wooden tongue. The bacteria usually enter the soft tissue of the mouth through similar abrasions that are caused by rough feed or awns.
In this case, the swellings are softer and more moveable, although a thicker capsule will eventually develop around them. Placing a sterile hypodermic needle in these lumps can often demonstrate pus in the centre of the abscess. The choice of pale pink and baby blue gingham checks hint at domesticity, while the stretch nylon fabric seen throughout the collection allows the fabric to follow the Punchinello proportions of the silhouette.
As so often with Rei Kawakubo's collections, there was the shock of incomprehension followed by visual memories that last a lifetime. Merce Cunningham, the New York-based choreographer famed for pronouncing the independence of dance from music, was instantly drawn to the way the clothes affect movement. Often a collaborator with other artists, Cunningham prominently worked with Robert Rauschenberg, who once costumed Cunningham in solid black accessorised only by a chair attached to his body.
For a performance, Cunningham asked Rauschenberg to make him a sweater with four arms, an item that coincidentally Kawakubo designed 25 years later. But when a person turns around, you see a totally different image, which is quite unexpected from the shape of the costume. And that was such a delight to my eyes. I do not want to play god nor do I want my dog to suffer. She is a 12 yo miniature Pomeranian. She has never had health issues before. After visits the vet and exrays, there has been found a tumor in her trachea the size of a marble. She coughs non stop throughout the night.
She still eats and drinks but not as much. She still kisses and wants to be cuddled with. But when she had these coughing fits sounds like when she had a hair. She is on hydrocodone and also Cannibis oil. It has been going on for almost three months now. It is always difficult to know when the time comes to make the unthinkable decision; it is hard to suggest what to do without personally examining Roxy.
Generally we look at pain, ability to breathe unhindered, eating, drinking, urinating and defecating; as her owner you will see any changes in behaviour that would indicate that she is in discomfort. Unfortunately, if the tumour is inoperable, it will only continue to cause discomfort and may possibly grow in size leading to further irritation. Hi - My Australian Shepherd Max was just diagnosed with a malignant tumor in his neck. We haven't really discussed options yet but they said biopsy is only way to be sure what type of cancer it is.
They said it's not in lymph nodes so we aren't sure if steroids will help. We have owned many Aussies over the years and every one we've lost has been 12 years old; the others succumbed to hemangiosarcoma which is a blessing only in that it's quick and not a prolonged situation. It does not appear Max will have the same brevity of illness. Interestingly, this all started we think when he go in a fight with one of our newer dogs and the whole side of his face became swollen from a bite last fall. It's been all downhill since then. For more accurate prognosis, you should discuss further with your Veterinarian.
Lifespan would be dependent on the type of tumour; again a biopsy or removal with subsequent biopsy would be the next step since treatment is diagnosis dependent. I have an 11 year old lab mix. She recently had a bladder infection that we treated with antibiotics. A couple of days ago I noticed that she was coughing and her bark is very hoarse and almost non existent. She is eating and drinking well, but I noticed a hard lump in her throat larynx area my husband and I can't figure out if it was there before, but when she was at the vet about 2 weeks ago she never said anything.
Also, she has a large lump on her left hip that the vet was concerned about. I decided to not have. It removed as my dog is old, and has bad anxiety so as long as it is not bothering her, I will leave it. I am afraid that this may be a malignant tumour that has moved through the lymp nodes.
There are many structures around the neck and throat area that may become enlarged including thyroid, lymph nodes, salivary glands as well as tumours and lipomas to name a few. Thank you very much. The vet called today to follow up on Sadie, but I missed the call. I will call them tomorrow to see if I can get her in. My vet didn't offer doing a biopsy of her hip fine needle aspirate , but instead wished to remove it. I will ask if this procedure would be less invasive for her.
Again, I thank you for your advice. I have a lab cross border collie he's only 5 he has a lump under his neck the vet didn't want to tell my mum I don't think he's had tablets to help the over active saliver gland but he's gave up on every thing very sleepy struggles breathing and lays outside alot he isn't eatting nothing we have tryet ever thing but the vet who gave him the tablets asked if he would eat with out complan which is baby food but he isn't eatting nothing I have a feeling it cancer will the vet check it out before putting a dog down we don't want him suffering he's lost 5kg in 2 weeks he's got bad breath which I noticed yesterday his bark isn't there he can still walk he drinks water but foods a problem he had a mucus comeing out his nose as well.
Has Jack been diagnosed with a salivary gland disorder? Swollen salivary glands can make breathing and eating uncomfortable. You can ask the Veterinarian for a fine needle aspirate of the lump or biopsy to send for histopathology to see what the cause of the mass is. There are many glands and lymph nodes etc… in the throat and the swelling may be caused by any of them. My 20 months old German Shepherd has has become very weak. Every few days he stops eating food for a day or two and has also become very aggressive.
He loves whole wheat Indian bread so we give it to him once in a while when he does not want to eat rice. But since yesterday, he is not able to swallow the bread properly. It is like it is getting stuck in his throat and he goes about spitting it out all over the house, though he is eating rice.
Also he has some pain in his leg due to which he is limping a bit. Since he is so aggressive, our vet is scared to touch him to check. Hi, my dog Toby has recently undergone radiotherapy for squamous cell carcinoma in his gum. He followed his 4 sessions with Palladia, which did upset his stomach so we were advised to stop it temporarily. On calling the specialist for advice as to whether to restart they wanted to do a CT scan. In the meantime Toby had started to pant heavier than usual. His bark had also gone a little funny, but that started around the same time as his radiotherapy.
His usual vet said she was sure that the raspy breathing sound was down to nerve damage in the flap at the back of his throat following radiation and it's very common and easy to treat. She also checked his previous tumour site and said he had an slight infection and also a bad tooth on the other side of his mouth. We then went for the routine CT scan and out of the blue told that Toby had swelling on his larynx which they took fine needle sample from and confirmed traces of cancer cells. They said also that his original tumour had returned, however this was completely clear not a few weeks before, and just days before his original vet said there was nothing there?
All other checks e. We are all now quite confused as to where we are at. Toby is currently on steroids and antibiotics for his infection in his mouth but is running about as normal even more so! He isn't in any pain from what we can see and the only thing he struggles with is when he jumps at the window thanks to the postman or a mischevious squirrel or cat!
At which point he coughs as if trying to clear his throat. Sorry for the extremely long description. The specialist who confirmed the details after the CT scan hasn't been very clear or good throughout the whole process, and to be told a few weeks ago he was completely clear and responding well to chemotherapy, to then be told he has only 3 weeks to live is a bit confusing. Really hoping for some advice. We are considering taking him for a second opinion but at the same time we don't want to look as though we are just grasping at straws. Currently Toby is acting better and healthier than when he was on radiotherapy so just can't make sense.
Thank you in advance.
Lumps and Bumps at Comme des Garçons S/S97 | AnOther
I have a 16 year old daschhund cross. She recently developed lumps on both sides of her throat and mouth. She has a lump on het hind leg, wich was diagnosed as benign before. I have an 11 year old black lab. She has been healthy until July. Her very first symptom was a bloody nose.
We thought it was odd but it passed. A couple of weeks later we assume she was stung by a wasp or something as she woke up Saturday morning with her eye swollen shut. Same side as the bloody nose. A week had passed and her eye had not gotten any better. We were giving her Benadryl everyday. Finally took her to the vet and he thought tumor. Gave her an aitibiotic and a staroid. It was 4 days before the swelling went down. Meantime she started breathing loudly and she gags like she can't clear her throats and she has excessive thirst.
Gave her a few weeks to get the antibiotic to kick in. The breathing seemed to get worse. Took her back to the vet, more anitibiotics and another round of steroids. A few weeks later back at the vet because she developed blood in her stool. More antibiotics and blood work. Blood work came back normal. My poor dog still has excessive thirst and having a hard time breathing and now she is throwing up after she eats. I forgot to mention she had lost 7 lbs from September 7 to Oct 28th. The doctors can't feel any lumps in her throats or anywhere but they do seem to think she probably has a tumor.
We couldn't afford treatment, and my lab was 10 at the time a volunteer vet at a clinic noticed it, so we've just been keeping an eye on his behavior and quality of life. He doesn't tolerate walks anymore, has grown increasingly lethargic and sleeps all the time much more than he used to. He doesn't urinate or poop as frequently.
It's challenging to get him moving. He also doesn't interact with them as much as he used to. He eats his 2 meals a day, but has recently been randomly vomiting more frequently, his food undigested even hours after eating. The more alarming symptom that is new has been that he has started gagging. He'll be curled up asleep next to me on the sofa, and suddenly wake, gagging, almost like he is choking nothing comes up , for several minutes at a time. He had kennel cough years ago, so I know it's not that, and I believe it is related to this growth on his neck.
Is it possible it's now pressing on his esophagus? I know it's just a matter of time before I have to make a decision to let him go. Are these signs that it may be time? I don't want to make him suffer and I've read that dogs are excellent at hiding pain. My 8 year old papillon poodle has been coughing like a smoker since I got him 3 months ago.
Lately he's been uninterested in treats and barely eats. Today I found a lump the size of a golf ball on his neck! He also throws up albeit not regularly. He's also eating a lot of grass lately. My sweet 10 year old dachshund Spiffy, woke up this morning very sluggish and puffy He has had multiple allergy reactions to food, ant bites and I know not what else!
He is overweight but has always been active and happy.. He has since he was a puppy, coughed to a choke every time he drinks. I mean every time! He sneezes and has a runny nose, very bad breath and swollen feet a lot and has had his eyes swell shut from what the vet says were allergies. By noon today he had a small lump under his left jaw back by his ear. He lay down and has not gotten up.. The lump is now the size of my thumb shaped like an almond, his nose is warm and dry and he's almost non responsive.. I am giving him water a few cc's at a time and he is swallowing it.
He won't eat and I have no money to take him to the vet.. His breath is shallow and his heartbeat is about normal - is there anything I can do for him? He is my heart and soul, I love him more than life! Please tell me I can help him!! The problem with lumps in the throat is that there are a variety of different causes and subsequent effects on the body depending on the origin. The problems with lumps in the throat are that they can cause extraluminal occlusion of the trachea and oesophagus which can lead to breathing difficulties and problems with swallowing.
The origin of a lump in the throat could be due to enlarged salivary glands, enlarged lymph nodes, an abscess or tumour; the treatment of the lump and the lethargy would be dependent on the primary cause which would need a Veterinary visit to determine. A fine needle aspirate or biopsy plus some blood tests would be required to make a definitive diagnosis. Dog diagnosed with cancer in throat by vet Very sore throat hardly eating Dog currently in good condition and exercising - want to euthanase in next 2 weeks when all can have said goodbye Is there anything recommended to give to relieve pain and to allow to eat a little?
Is there any hope at all for a tumor in the esophagus? My Maltese is the healthiest and most active 13 year old you could imagine. This all surfaced today. We are heartbroken, it was biopsied early today, but after reading and reading it appears there is not much hope. Just wanted to see if you have ever come across a positive experience.
Thanks you so much for your help is you answer because it is getting a lot bigger as time passes. This is working out well as Charlie's cancer is advancing. Also give him bone broth. About a year ago she had a big bump just under her eye on her jaw, she likes catching flies. We did the worst possible thing and assumed she got stung by a bee trying to catch the bee.
It looked swollen not a permanent lump as it went away.
One more step
When it happened again we took a closer look and saw her back tooth was infected, the tooth was removed and the swelling went down again. We were under the impression the problem was solved. She has also had some difficulties breathing but when she was a puppy the vet told us it was asthma, so when she had difficulties breathing we started treating the asthma. Last night she was struggling to breath and it looked like she wanted to vomit. We took her to the vet, the vet told us she had fluid in her lungs and because of this her heart had to work harder now leaving her with a weak heart.
The vet gave her medication to assist and kept her over night. She then told us Maya has a lump in her throat and she is busy testing it to see if it is cancerous. She has also developed a second symptom she is struggling to walk, and stand up straight she keeps falling over. This is what I know so far. I'm struggling for information and I want to do the best for my animal. Please if you have any ideas or any advise.
My jack Russell has a small growth size of a quarter on the left side of his neck, literally just found out as we were walking in to get his overdue dental work Should I get surgery done? Is this common for jacks? The vet said it could be a tumor in the esophagus or very close to it. Could it possibly be anything less serious? She seems her normal self other than this.
We took an x-ray and it does have a black mark there, I guess big enough to be a tumor possibly. The vet thinks it could be as well. My 9year old Rottweiler female Jessie, had a tumor removed from her mouth about 6 months ago, it was found to be malignant. She is on renal food and has always been an unenthusiastic eater. About 3 weeks ago, we had to start really coaxing her to eat. She throws up about half of the food she does eat, and has a very heavy bad breath smell. The food she throws up is not digested.
I will be taking her to the vet, but what should I ask them to look at - her throat or stomach. Will they be able to pick up tumors on a normal xray as my local vet does have mri or CT machines? Hello, dear doctors, My dog, Little Bit, is a mutt, hence her name. She is a little bit of this and a little bit of that. She is 13 and the apple of my eye. She is having multiple symptoms, which may or may not have anything to do with each other. Nevertheless, I am very worried.
Here are my concerns, in no particular order: She is having trouble controlling her back legs. This doesn't seem to be all the time, but sometimes I have to lift her on the couch, carry her down the stairs for fear that if I didn't, she'd go tumbling down , etc. She has lost a recognizable amount of weight. I'm guessing 10 pounds - down from to Again, I am guessing on that. When she gave up eating any dried food, I thought she was just being picky, but now she's not interested in that food at all.
Thinking it might be her year-old teeth, I've been giving her wet food. This has cleared up any worries that it was her appetite because she loves that wet food. She is throwing up way more than she ever used to. I'd say now it's about 3 times a week. And last but not least, she has a lump in the waddle of her throat that I just found a few days ago. Can you give me any idea of whether or not these symptoms are indicating anything or things? Is there anything I can do for her on my own? I know I should have taken her to the vet a while ago, but my finances are very tight, to say the least.
Thank you for being here and willing to answer my questions. I really appreciate you! The vet has aspirated it, but the lab is closed until Monday 2 more days. She seems to be getting worse, rather than better. I was just wondering if you know anything about lumps combined with fever, as a fever isn't listed in the symptom list above. Zorro was also prescribed 40 mg of prednisone for 5 days.
After a few days, my dog ate some grass from our cabin and threw up later that day, as for this reason, I took him off prednisone without finishing the entire 5 day dose. After he threw up, his appetitte had gone downhill. After half the family returned home, he began to start eating fairly normal again.
But, 4 days later, 3 out of 4 of us left for Florida for about 1 week. I left home about halfway into the trip and he was eating well when I left. The dog sitter later told us that his appetitte had lessened. We got home 4 days ago and he is barely eating. He will drink a little but even chicken is unappealing to him. Blood work has not shown anything out of the blue and the vet has conducted a full physical check, no strange lumps or anything concerning. He has lost about 10 pounds within the last 2 weeks.
Your reading list
He is also a lot less energetic doesn't run to the kitchen when he knows there is food, doesn't want his dummy thrown, doesn't hang out with the family like always, his favorite foods like peanut butter and chicken don't even draw his attention anymore. He has not thrown up since the 1st incidint described and has no sign of pain. We are just scared especially because his energy level has decreased tremeandously, which obviously makes sense if he hasn't eaten a full meal for a while.
Today, the vet put Zorro on a medicine that is supposed to increase his appetite. He is also on a strict food diet for only his regular kibble.
Horse Health: Often the best treatment is benign neglect until they get better on their own
He has another appointment scheduled for Thursday if no progress is made. My dog recently had an ultrasound of her neck which showed a 3 cm tumor on her right thyroid gland and a 1 cm on her left. A week ago she was diagnosed with B cell leukemia. The vet advise the tumors look slow growing. Can she live normally for several years until these tumors become large.
At what size do symptoms normally appear? Currently she is a perfectly normal dog. Yearly blood work lead us to find this. So even if I do the surgery she only has a possible years before the leukemia becomes fatal. So can I let her be obviously for those and not put her through surgery? My dog started off what we were told was kennel cough. His breathing has become very labored and has a persistent cough. He has become weak at getting up to walk, etc. What is wrong with my dog? She still eats, drinks and stool is normal.
But worried this will be getting worse. Did blood work and x-rays came back okay. She was sedated Dr looked in her nose and throat didn't see anything.
Recently found what feels to be an Adam's apple in my dogs throat, just a few inches above where her collar sits. She doesn't eat as fast anymore. There are many different structures in the throat where tumours, cysts or abscess may originate; if she is vomiting occasionally after eating this maybe due to pressure on the oesophagus causing vomiting or in the throat causing a gag reflex.
