Puppy Rash & Vulva Discharge (Help)!
Hi my puppy has just turned 16 weeks old yesterday and is currently nearly finished her THIRD lot of antibiotics! I'm not sure how bad this many antibiotics are for a young puppy, I can't imagine its a good thing as with a human it would be very bad I can imagine. We have been going to this vet for years (our old dogs whole life) and would never of had a problem with them and they also have a good name around my area. But since we have got my new GSD puppy and brought her for her very first visit on the 9th of July (day after we got her) I'm starting to be a bit unsure about them. The reason being, her very first 'check up' visit she was said to be absolutely fine and in great nick, but that day, AFTER the vet we noticed (as she was scratching and licking a lot) she had a rash on her lower belly and around her vulva... The vet never seen this.. Which annoyed me because as she was a small clueless puppy on her first vet check, it was so easy for the vet to give her a good thorough full check. So we had to go back up that same week to the same vets but with a different person, he gave her first full week dose of antibiotics for her rash. The antibiotics made her sleep more around the time of these antibiotics (and each one since) and off her food a bit more then she usually is (a very picky eater.. of her own food) That rash cleared up and all was fine until a few weeks later we noticed it back and brought her down again, hoping she would get cream but she had to get ANOTHER injection (which she squealed again like the first time) and started another lot of antibiotics. These antibiotics didn't do a whole lot, cleared her rash up a bit but I don't think fully (she was on them a bit longer then a week too) we had to bring her back for a check and because when we noticed a greeny coloured discharge coming from her vulva that she also keeps trying to lick, we also brought a urine test which was fine but the vet said this discharge is uncommon and if THESE antibiotics don't clear it up he's unsure what it is and what to do... Theres about two days left of the antibiotics, her rash is coming back on her lower belly (little bumps) AND her armpit (like hives) and it seems the discharge is still there but I think its eased a bit. I'm really worried these antibiotics won't work, and at the age of 3 months she is now terrified of the vet! We had all these plans to make her ok with the vet but after all these visits with injections nearly everytime she's gonna be a nightmare bringing in the future.. And on top of all this she gets car sick! The poor thing I feel so sorry for her! Does ANY of this sound familiar to anybody here or would you have any idea what it could be or even a cause? If it's happened to your dog? Would love to ease my mind a bit before this next visit as I don't know what the outcome will be! Thanks
