PUPPY STRANGLES
 
Juvenile cellulitis, or puppy strangles, is generally seen in puppies ranging between 3 weeks and 4 months of age. Puppies with strangles will typically have swollen lymph nodes underneath the jaw and crusting, pustular skin lesions on their face and ears. More severely affected puppies may be lethargic, reluctant to eat, have joint pain and/or a fever. Prompt medical care is indicated in any puppy with these symptoms to ease their discomfort, prevent progression of the condition and reduce the incidence of secondary, opportunistic infections.
