  • Possible Q Fever

    Hi there! I have a very strange situation. About a year ago my family and I adopted a dog from an older man who was going into a nursing home. I kept in contact with his family and a few months ago we ended up having to euthanize the dog due to extreme health decline. Since then, I received an email from the family stating that the man we adopted the dog from was recently diagnosed with Q Fever. I've never heard about it before so I of course googled it. The man told me he believes it was contracted....

    Hello, My three yr old Lab, overall Healthy, she cut her rear pad about 5mo ago and I haven't been able to get the pad heal.

    Senior pet, upset stomach, diet change

    Hello, I have a 9 year old Vizsla. About 6 months ago she started vomiting at night, mostly just bile, sometimes her dinner. The vet put her on some royal canin and said to give her an acid reducer twice a day. It worked for a bit and I switched her back to Iams, kept her on the acid reducer. The vomiting started again and they said to feed her some food closer to bed time. That helped for a bit and now she is vomiting again at night, this time a little bit of the late night food is in there. Lately....

    Rapid heart rate & heavy breathing

    My Dog is about 6.5 years old. His behavior has been very off tonight: he stumbled a couple times during our regular walk and his breathing hasn't gone back to normal since we got back almost 3 hours ago. His heart rate is rapid and his breaths are short. He didn't drink much water and I can tell something is off because he won't leave my side. He's even falling asleep while staring at me. I've tried giving him water, fans on him to cool him down, but his breathing is still short....

  • Dog bite question

    My two lab sisters got in a fight and one took a chunk out of the others shoulder. I can't take her to the vet right now, we just moved and had to put up a pen for them to be in outside ( they were inside babies till now). I was wondering if it would heal alright if I was to pack it with antibiotic cream and give her a few shots of penicillin? She doesn't act like it is bothering her, and they have both already had their rabies shots. Thanks for any advise
  • Tiny Doggo has an Abscess.

    My doggo has a bump/abscess type thing between her toes and the pad of her foot. It looks super red and irritated, but doesn't seem to be bothering her at all when I touch it. I'm not sure if I should leave it alone, or take her in for it... or even if there's anything I should do for her.
