    Repeated intestinal distress in my dog

    My dog, who is about 5 years old, and who has always been a very healthy dog has in the past 3.5 weeks gotten sick 3 times. Each time she throws up several times 5-8x, is obviously in intestinal distress, walks in circles, stretches neck and body and cant remain lying down for more than a few seconds before getting back up again to pace. She luckily is drinking water but wont eat. The first time it lasted 48 hours before she started to eat again and started to get back to her old frolicking self....

    Yorkie Hindlegs Can't Support Weight

    We have been to three different vets, but none can come to a conclusive diagnosis. Our three-year-old Yorkie started dragging her hindleg a few days back. Now she can't stand at all. Her legs are all fully mobile, she kicks like normal, and is full of energy and is always alert. She doesn't seem to be in pain. Her ears and tail are always upright. But no matter how hard she kicks her hindlegs, she can't stand. If you hold up her butt, she can walk. Otherwise, she can't. To defecate....

    Dog fight

    My dog was involved in a small scuffle two days ago. The only damage was to her bottom right lip. Now there is a white mass hanging from the abrasion. Can anyone tell me what it is and/or what I should do about it?

    About my dog bulge on her tummy popped up overnight

    My Chihuahua terrier mix female was spayed about 2yts ago .but overnight a big bulge appears on her tummy this morning. Overnight. She's in perfect health. It's on the right side of her spaying scar when she's on her back. It's kind of hard when I squeezed it. Could it be constipation. She's been constipated before but this popped up overnight.

    Puppy Issues

    My son brought home a 5-6 week old puppy (Benzo) just over 3 weeks ago. The second day having him we noticed he was having a hard time urinating, was lethargic, breathing hard and heart beating fast. We took him to the animal hospital and they basically said he might have something going on with his Kidneys so either try medicine or put him down. He was prescribed with an antibiotic (Clavamox 0.5mg), for 7 days. He seamed to get a little better but he was still squatting every 10 mins with just a....

    Senior Dog with Cushings

    My 13 year old Pug was just diagnosed with early Cushings disease. I wanted thoughts on treating a senior dog with medication for this illness. Everything I have read says side effects can be pretty bad and I don't want to ruin his quality of life. His symptoms as of now include drinking a lot and frequent urination. Because of his age his eyes and hearing are going, he has dry eye which requires medication and lots of skin tags. Sometimes he has a hard time getting around and his legs shake....

    Nasal discharge in 15 week old puppy

    My 15 week old puppy has a nasal discharge that is greenish in color and slightly thick and mucous-like. I really only see it when he's sleeping and it's enough that I need to wipe his nose. There is minimal discharge when he is awake. He doesn't seem to have any other symptoms. No diarrhea or vomiting and his energy levels and food intake are normal. I do want to take him to the vet, however we purchased pet insurance and have two more days left in our waiting period. Any health problems....
