Normal nostril (right, lower, lateral) 2 weeks after anti-inflam into lesion. ToaPayohVets Young Golden Retriever. Nasal swelling. Toa Payoh Vets
tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)2347. Dog owner consulted me about dog's ear infection today. I noted that his right nostril was OK now and took a picture for comparison with Picture No. 1857. tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)Retrospective Review 1857. Nasal swelling in a young Golden Retriever is probably inflammatory and not a tumour. Surgical excision may not be a good option for this dog.

Dr Sing's drawing of one adult scabies mite seen under the microscope.  (See May 9, 2009 retrospective review below).  tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)Retrospective Review 1294. Rabbit puts his paws deep inside his ears as part of his grooming but all paws are unaffected. Is it possible that the paw temperature of the Flemish Giant is too high for the scabies mite to live?
May 9, 2009 retrospective review of the Flemish Giant case encountered in May 2008.

It is most likely that the Flemish Giant had scabies and ear mites at the same time! The brown mite would be the ear mites rather than scabies mites. This species is distinct from the scabies mites.  No detailed anatomical study was done to differentiate the two species was done in this case.

Vet students may be interested in further study of the anatomy.

The treatment with one injection of ivermectin was effective. The expatriate owner did not return or phoned.

This is usually around the 8th to 12th day.  Dam bite the head and chest, thereby killing 2 puppies within 24 hours after surgery as the owner just stopped supervising her for a moment. Is this a case of Canine post-partum depression? As at May 8, 2009 5 pm, the owner reported that the dam was nursing the remaining 3 pups but was now under 24-hour human supervision and company.
