I am hoping for the best for you and Dixie. My wife and I have spent a small fortune on dogs, cats, horses and a miniature donkey over the years, no regrets, well maybe some regrets on the cats for my part.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

I am not much of a praying type so went the other route. Hope she gets sorted out.

It's a possibility that whatever branch she bit had some sort of toxicity, BUT I would have thought that would show up on bloodwork? But maybe not if they weren't looking for that.... I dunno.

My regular vet is an old timey country vet that does livestock and all that. I believe he's in his late 80s so he's been doing this awhile. And he's never seen anything like this. He told me he didn't know what else to do but send her to the college for the testing.

I know this sounds absolutely ridiculous lol, but. My Gma always had dogs and when I was a kid she had a B&T hound named Skippy. I seen it happen twice, once he was snake bit and the other time he looked like your Dixie.

She fed the dog buttermilk and both times he come out of it. She claimed that for dogs, buttermilk had some kind of healing agent. Old hillbilly thing that sounds silly but it worked. Let the smear the queer pile on begin. grin grin


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Now that's a theory. I've never seen a staph infection, but if sounds like it could fit the symptoms. None of the vets have mentioned the word "culture" to me. I know they did bloodwork and a biopsy but not sure if they did a culture.

I think there is merit to many "old time" procedures. Use of medicinal plants in success have been around forever. Milk Thistle comes to mind . That is a common medicinal , powerful plant that reduces poisons, infections, and helps heal and give the body what it needs to overcome specific illness .

I would think, buttermilk can have some similar effect and properties as Milk Thistle , on certain infections.

I surely hope you find what is ailing Dixie. Her body is doing everything in trying to tell that something is still going on in there. I even wondered about a tooth infected , resulting in some minute splinter...please keep us posted, Angela.

The comment above that mentioned Staph really has me thinking now. Because I didn't really cover this part in the initial story about her, but in addition to the swelling and oozing mouth, she has a similar spot on her right side, over her rib cage. It started out as a cluster of lumps, and the country doc lanced it once. Throughout the past 5 months, that spot would come and go, sometimes being almost gone and other times popping up in a series of 4-6 fluid filled lumps. Neither the mouth, or her side, started oozing until within the past 6 weeks or so... but now they ooze an odorless (as far as I can smell) mixture of pus and blood pretty much continuously.

What antibiotic did they give her. I would’ve tried giving her penicillin and a injectable ivermectin orally.
