Abstract:
Canine Juvenile cellulitis is an uncommon granulomatous and pustular disorder of the face, pinnae, and submandibular lymph nodes mostly affecting young puppies, between one and six months of age. This condition is currently regarded as idiopathic, meaning that its cause is currently unknown. It is an immune-mediated disease. Therefore, treatment of juvenile cellulitis relies upon suppressing the immune system, to stop the auto-immune reaction. The treatment of choice in canine juvenile cellulitis is judicious use of the proven anti-inflammatory agent, glucocorticoid: Prednisolone, singly or in combination with broad-spectrum antibiotic in a well-planned oral therapeutic regimen.
