Every dog owner knows that dogs love us unconditionally, and they make our lives more joyful with every passing day. This is why it is incredibly important to understand how to keep your dog safe, including from antibiotic-resistant infections that can occur.
If you think your dog might have an antibiotic-resistant infection, don’t hesitate to call Dr. Ron’s Animal Hospital & Emergency in order to get diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. Offering our expertise and services to Simi Valley, Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, Chatsworth, and areas nearby Ventura County, California, we understand that your dog’s health and safety is top priority.
Recognizing an antibiotic-resistant infection in your dog is one of the most important skills that you can have as a pet owner. Since our dogs cannot communicate with us exactly when or how they feel sick or uncomfortable, it is our job to be able to intuitively read the signs of any sickness that occurs. Some of the most common signs of an antibiotic-resistant infection in your dog are:
It is always best to accompany this at-home examination with a thermometer to make sure. On the other hand, if your dog seems to be vibrating or shaking, it could mean that it has chills associated with antibiotic-resistant infections. If either of these symptoms arise, take your dog to Dr. Ron’s Animal Hospital & Emergency Immediately.
After re-examining your dog and diagnosing an antibiotic-resistant infection, your veterinary professional will most likely prescribe an antimicrobial. This antimicrobial will act similarly to the antibiotic, attacking the infection that is making your dog sick. If your dog begins to also show the uncommon signs of an antimicrobial resistance, then longer and more excessive treatment might be necessary.
