Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
I don;t believe my vet has an ultra sound . But I will find out. Do I take it that you're suggesting a course of oral antibiotics as well as the shot she just had . I can do that but she's resisting pills at the moment so we thought the shot would be easier on her - a one shot deal so to speak .
I feel that our vet has kind of given up on her. She hasn't done any diagnostic tests ,not even a urin sample . We see her every week for accupuncture which has helped with the arthritis pain , but unless I insist she never does an examination .
Our dog is a very active old girl still - she walks the perimiter of our very large yard many times every day (even with her arthritis ) . She had a doggy stroke in April but recovered very well with the help of a steroid .The steroid made her pee like a racehorse .
The slimy discharge started after we had finished the course of prednesone and the vet prescribed an antibiotic . It stoped the discharge for a while but it came back about six weeks ago but got worse about a week ago . She had the shot of antibiotic onTuesday and it's now Thursday evening and the discharge is worse.What tests should we ask for and is that not too much antibiotic for an old dog to take.lI'd like to resolve the problem as soon as I can for her sake.
