About a month ago my dog (Teddy) had a growth on his tail.
About a month ago my dog (Teddy) had a growth on his tail. The vet told us not to worry about it. Then it became abscessed. The vet drained the abscess twice but it never healed properly. He also had yeast in his ears. I was told to give him drops and clean them daily, which Teddy hates and resists. Teddy's behavior started to change. He does not want to go on walks and does not want to play. A week ago we took him in to have his teeth cleaned, there was inflammation on his upper gums. At the same time I suggested removing the growth completely. Since then he has become more lethargic, less interactive and just not himself. We live in Thailand and communication is an issue. Teddy does not have a fever and blood test results are normal. I was told he had inflammation and was given anti-inflammatories. He is not the same dog but I keep hearing everything is normal. I went to a veterinarian, a 24 hour pet hospital and a University animal clinic.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?Customer: He is eating and is still peeing and has bowel movements. This morning after he had a bm he sat down and did not want to walk. He stopped several times and eventually I had to carry him.

I gave my dog hydrocodone 5mg/homatropine 1/2 of a pill this
Hi, I gave my dog hydrocodone 5mg/homatropine 1/2 of a pill this morning and he now just had squirts. Should I give him the other half tonight? Or wait until my vet opens tomorrow morning? Also, he takes Benadryl for his severe itching. I stopped the Benadryl to give him the other medication. If I don't give him the other 1/2 of hydrocodone 5mg/homatropine, can I give him a Benadryl 12 hours later tonight? Thank youJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. How old is hydrocodone?Customer: Huh? It's for his cough. And he just got the medication the end of last week. He does not have any fleas. He still itches all the time and might have a skin problem.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about hydrocodone?Customer: The vet gave me hydrocodone/homatropine for a cough. They said to give one pill then after one dose called Friday and said to down it to 1/2 a pill because he got the squirts. Tried 1/2 a pill this morning and he now had squirts.

Her litter mate died two weeks ago and she has had no will to live since then. Will some acepromazine help her over the rainbow bridge painlessly?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: oh for sure!JA: The Veterinarian will know what to do. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: no, just need to know if it would help her over painlessly. I have some on hand and I know she's dying. Just want to make it easier for her

We had to put down one of our furbabies today. They did an IV cath, but did not sedate him before the final shot. He first urinated and then did one final cry before he was gone. I need to know for sure if it was a cry of pain or an involuntary response because the medicine worked so quickly. It will help ease my mind and help me decide how to handle euthanasia when another of our furbabies is ready.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the baby's name and age?Customer: Willie and he was about 12JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Willie?Customer: He had suddenly lost his sight about two weeks ago. My friend suspected he had a stroke. This last week was very difficult for him. He was pacing, restless, and could not settle for very long. My friend then decided it was time and we needed to end his pain.
