My two month puppy had a strangle and was treated by the vet, he looked better yesterday but his eyelids got swollen again today and more lumps were found around the neck and shoulder. Is it normal? How long can he get fully recovered?

Hi there- sorry about your puppy. Strangles can be a long recovery process. You should contact your vet right away with any changes, good or bad, and keep in contact with the vet until they determine that your puppy is well. They will be able to direct you on the best and most effective treatment, and also be able to make any necessary changes in that treatment. Best of luck!

Hello,
If you are worried ask your vet to recheck your puppy. In some cases the steroid dose needs to be changed or an antibiotic added. As gas as time frame goes everyone is different. But usually it is a few weeks before they are acting and looking like a normal puppy. Best of luck!
