Abstract

A sterile pyogranuloma/granuloma syndrome in a dog is described. Diagnosis was based on cytological examinations of the skin and lymph nodes and histopathological examinations of the skin and nictitans. Although the condition initially was responsive to large doses of glucocorticoids, it subsequently was treated successfully with tetracycline and niacinamide. The excellent responses of this dog suggest that this drug combination may be a viable therapeutic option for dogs in which glucocorticoids cannot be used.
