Rescue dog with compromised immune system
Posted By tdomf_d6e07 On March 10, 2012 @ 6:50 PM In Ask the Vet | 2 Comments
We adopted a dog that we found in the desert. We don’t know anything about her life before meeting us (the vet estimates she’s about 2 years old); we’ve learned a lot about the conditions she had upon finding her. We treated her successfully for a parasite that we’ve been told is transmitted only from a dog’s mother (I do not recall the name); she is prone to ear infections which we treat as needed; she has seasonal allergies, very dry skin and an inverted vulva. The vet recommended she be on a multivitamin since her immune system is weak. Is there anything specific that I should look for in a mulit vitamin? (She is currently on a GNC mega multi-vitamin for adult dogs).
Additionally, we noticed recently a growth on her snout that was very small. During the routine check up the vet said it was nothing to worry about, that it may get bigger,that this typeof growth is typically found on snouts and ears, but assured us that it would eventually heal on its own. It’s been about a month now and it has grown to the size of a pencil eraser and the area is no longer covered with hair. It doesn’t seem to bother her – at what point do I have her re-evaluated? Is there anything I can do to speed the healing process?
Thank you so much!
