My dog went to the vet for his dental cleaning and was put

My dog went to the vet for his dental cleaning and was put under anethesia. This was at 10am yesterday. Earlier today around 5:30 I went to take him for a walk. He had a seizure episode for the first time, then shortly after, he became aggresive and tried to attack me. I was outside my house for the last 3 1/2 hours until I was finally able to get him to enter my backyard patio. I spoke with the vet and they told me the anesthesia should have wore off and it is unrelated. He is still aggresive and is attempting to attack me through the glass. He is a husky mix and has never been aggresive to anyone or any dog his whole life even those that are trying to bite him. I am unsure what to doJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Panda, 3 years oldJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Panda?Customer: This is the first time he has been under anesthesia. He was acting normal prior to the seizure, I was even able to walk him yesterday night without issue.

Our 10 year old Basset Hound has hyperkeratosis on her nose.

Our 10 year old Basset Hound has hyperkeratosis on her nose. She has had it for a while. It doesn't seem to bother her much. We have been treating it with nose butter and its slowly improving. The underside of her nose, directly underneath - not really on her 'lip' area - has become pink, red and just today I noticed darker patches that look like more raw or sore areas. Its a thin line that runs under her nose, almost as if she were over licking...? I can take a photo and send it if that would help!

My small dog has been laying down for most of these past few days, she still eats, drinks water and pees, tonight I have watched her breathing is very fast. I examined her body for any tenderness and when I slightly pressed near her abdomen area near her vaginal area she whimpered. What can it be, I'm worried.

Just a sec--i'm going to ask my daughter. ok, her chihuahua

just a sec--i'm going to ask my daughter. ok, her chihuahua mix makes hacking noises and gagging noises as if she's about to throw up, but then nothing ever comes up. it sometimes happens after she eats, sometimes after she drinks water, sometimes after active play. my vet suggested the possibility of allergies and/or asthma, but she is 4 years old and has not exhibited this behavior until recently. I'm just alarmed that the symptoms may signal something serious and new, throat or esophageal cancer, or something like that.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?Customer: No, nothing comes up when she hacks and gags. as far as a particular food is concerned, there is nothing much she eats that precedes these "attacks", but she does INHALE her food, she doesn't even seem to chew it.JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. This sounds important. The vet will definitely help you with this. I'm going to connect you with a vet who has 902 happy customers and a 4.9 out of 5 Rating. Anything else we should know before I connect you?Customer: No, that's about all I can think of immediately. Oh, except, sometimes when this happens she has bubbles coming out of one nostril. It's infrequent, but it does happen.

Our new dog, Dolly, is a rescue. She is wonderful in every

Our new dog, Dolly, is a rescue. She is wonderful in every way, except she barks at every dog she sees from the Windows in our house. We have had some success telling her to be quiet and she usually backs away from the window, but, then she barks at us. She is in a high state of anxiety. She also has separation anxiety. 1st time chewed the front door. Bought crate and she chewed through several wires and scraped her neck some. We now have a Large travel crate that she can't chew. She is 1 1/2 yrs old with mature weight of 35 lbs. Housebroken, Wonderful with my grandchildren and all people. I hired a Dog Behaviorist who helped us with us claiming the space around outside doors. This worked. What can we do to control her barking? I will absolutely not use a shock collar, I have seen collars that vibrate and make a sound, but her level of anxiety is so high at the time that I doubt they will work. Any advise or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Dolly?Customer: We were told Dolly was brought in by a couple who said they couldn't afford to feed her and they thought she was hit by a car. Took her to my vet. Shots were given and she was examined. Found long scrape on inner thigh and cut toe also. Gave her heart worm shot, also. Low weight, but now is healthy.
