The present report describes a case of puppy strangles in a 65 days old male Labrador puppy. The animal presented with a chief complaint of anorexia, sudden onset of swelling of the muzzle, eyelids, and face, nodules on the bilateral neck and forelimb, bilateral ear discharge for ten days after the administration of primary vaccination. The case did not respond to antibiotic therapy on an examination, the puppy was dull and lethargic with a high body temperature (103.2ºF) physical exam revealed focal alopecia, erythema, crusted nodular lesions over the muzzle, eyelids, face, and forelimb swelling of submandibular lymph nodes noticed. Based on age, typical clinical findings, distribution of lesions, and the history of unaffected littermates, the disease is diagnosed as juvenile cellulitis. Skin lesions and pain greatly improved following immunosuppressive corticosteroid therapy. The animal responded to the medication well and recovered in 14 days.
