We have a diagnosis!

Puppy strangles.

Lymph nodes became enlarged late last night, and muzzle pustules began to form this morning. We came home from the vet with a steroid protocol.

The vet says we likely caught it in time to prevent any scarring of the muzzle, and there should be minimal if any scarring around her eyes. Let's pray this is the case.

I had to google strangles...I was going to say my dog gets the same things around her eyes...but steriods usually take care of it that and at times injectable antibotics...wow I sure hope the treatment helps...those pics of the strangles are very hard to look at...keep us updated

Wow!! I've learned something new today!! I thought it was allergies too. Never heard of puppy strangles. So glad you got an answer early enough to fix the problem. Poor baby. Sounds like he's in good hands & will be acting like a puppy again soon.

Strangles is basically cellulitis. Surprised it look so long for it to start showing on the muzzle! But so glad you finally got a diagnosis! Lots of love to your little girl, hoping she makes a complete recovery.

Yeah, it certainly didn't present like a normal case. Heck, the initial "little spot on the eyelid" that seems to start all cases hung around for almost 2 weeks before it started to look even remotely like Juvenile Cellulitis. We were also thrown off because she's outside the typical age range by a couple of months.

She's looking a hundred times better already! The swelling is all but gone from her eyelids, and her lymph nodes are almost back to normal. I hope the follicles around her eyes weren't damaged so much that they can't recover, and I hope her slightly excessive tearing isn't permanent. It has been only 2 full days on Prednisone, though, so,we have hope for a full recovery... Possibly minus a few eyelashes that appear at this point a little too damaged. But we shall see.
