A week ago my Maltese got stung by a bee. Took him to emergency vet who removed the stinger and administered 2 injections. One was epinephrin. Later he started to cry in pain. He had to stay with them overnight and be sedated. He said something may be wrong with his back. Took him home the next day with perscription of Temaril p. He said pup will be okay.
BUT 2 days later Puppy has developed a bald spot above his tail and it is warm to the touch and causes him pain if touched.
Took him to our Vet - Blood Tests are elevated due to inflammation - X-Rays don't show anything bad. He cannot determine the cause, no evidence of bug bite, however, I think it could be the result of the emergency vets care.
My Vet prescribed Clavamox for inflammation and Tramadol for pain and hot compresses also no playing with others, he has to remain on leash and semi-confinement for 2 weeks. We are on day 3. He called yesterday said we could add another perscription if there is no improvement.
He is not itching the area but the hair is falling out and it's very sensitive. I am worried and love my little 6 month old puppy.
Any suggestions... Please Could Apple Cider Work?
