    Shaking, lethargic shih tzu/spaniel

    My 2 year old shih tzu/spaniel mix has been having on and off shaking (like tremors) for about a week. The other symptoms are loss of appetite and lethargy. I brought him to the vet and his exam was totally fine. He did bloodwork which resulted in a test for Addison’s disease that came out negative. The vet prescribed an anti-inflammatory that didn’t seem to make any difference. Then we took him off that and now he’s on a appetite stimulant which is helping to eat more but he’s still lethargic and....

    Split Paw Pad Disease

    My dog will be 5 years old 08/31/2018 and when he was 2 was diagnosed with something called Split Paw Pad Disease. The vet said she had to look it up when she did a biopsy and had never heard of it before. I am trying to get more information on it but cannot find much through Google and have not found anything on WebMD about it. I am mainly looking for way to prevent my dog from chewing and licking his paws. He now has very bad breath. He has lately been throwing up every now and then. My wife and....

    Cat fight

    My indoor/outdoor cat got into tift with neighbor barn cat. Got small injury over eye 2 weeks ago. Now she keeps ripping it open. A little swollen, not doesn't appear infected. Try to put antibiotic on it but she won't have it. Any thoughts why it won't heal? I have ear mite meds but no other signs so I don't want to use it if not needed. Just did flea drops, but I didn't think it's fleas, haven't seen any other itching.

    My dog swallowed big chunk of a bully braid

    My 13 yr old border collie was chewing on a nine inch bully braid. When I approached her to take it from her, she swallowed it whole. It was approx between 2-3 inches long and 1 and a half inches wide when she swallowed it. That was 2 days ago. Today, she is pooping a lot. There is a lot of mucus in her poop. Should I be concerned?

    Dog vomiting yellow bile

    My 5yo German Shepard mix has been vomiting yellow bile. It's not consistent, but it happens about two or three times a month. It seems like acid reflux. I've tried changing foods from grain free to beneful dog food. Her weight is good, she eats fine, drinks fine and is active. I've tried tums and apple cider vinegar, neither workws. Any suggestions on other remedies that won't require a $200 vet visit?
