Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. You're through to Dr Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you shortly.
Thanks for the lab report. The first thing to mention here is that campylobacter is often found as a 'commensal' organism in dogs, this means that many healthy/normal dogs carry it. Only a few strains actually cause disease and even then it is usually self limiting within 10 days. It may be worth asking the lab of they offer campylobacter typing PCR, this can tell us if it is a pathogenic strain or not, in many cases it won't be, so treatment will not be needed.
If it was pathogenic and we thought it could be causing clinical sigms I. E Diarrhoea, then your vet would need to prescribe the treatment required (usually Erythromycin), as UK law does not allow this to be prescribed online.
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
