This is a rare disease in dogs, and is commonly seen in horses and cats. Dogs suffering from eosinophilic granuloma complex tend to display abnormal reactions to insect bites or develop hypersensitive reactions. Such skin reactions will regularly emerge as nodules or swellings on any part of the body. As time passes, these nodules become ulcerated or thickened. Another condition, whose cause is yet unknown, is where solitary or multiple swellings form on the tongue or in the mouth of Siberian Huskies.
Treating the disease requires use of antibiotics in the initial stages, although a low dose of corticosteroids may be recommended for most dogs, if the disorder recurs. It might also be a prudent measure to control insects around the home.
