My cocker spaniel got into a bottle of claritin and is in the hospital right now but they didn't give me much confidence that he will be okay. They said his heart rate is 210 and his blood pressure is high. Do you think he will be able to survive this? What does it mean to have a heart rate that high?

I have an Aussie Mini and was looking for a flea medication

I have an Aussie Mini and was looking for a flea medication that is safe if she has the MDR1 gene mutation. I have not had her tested yet but wanted to check and see if I could get something for her and still be safe? I was also wondering if the normal flea shampoo would have to be a concern as well?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: That's about it

We have a 4 year old Staffy who has become increasingly

We have a 4 year old Staffy who has become increasingly terrified of storms or any other loud noise such as fireworks to the point where she pants so hard and trembles so much with anxiety it's like she's going to have a heart attack. We rent our house so are not allowed to have her inside (although I did try this as well and she clawed the door so bad we had to replace it and some of the wall as well). We made a door for her kennel to help her feel safe (plenty of air flow) but she just about rammed through it and clawed it to shreds. We came home on NYE after the fireworks to find her in such a state as she had tried to jump up through the windows and there was so much blood everywhere as she had torn all of her claws. We have tried anxiety medication from the Petbarn etc which calms her a bit if the storm isn't too bad but when there's loud thunder then she goes into such a state that nothing seems to calm her down. My husband said we will have to put her down as there's nothing else we can do and we are afraid that if there is a storm one time when we are not home then she's going to hurt herself or literally break through the glass slidersJA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the ram's name?Customer: She's a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and her name is*****: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Taya?Customer: She's a rescue dog and we think that they may have tried to drown her where she came from as she is absolutely terrified of water as well; other than that she's fine if the weather is fine
