I have an 8 year old American Bulldog who has been jaundiced
I have an 8 year old American Bulldog who has been jaundiced for 3 1/2 weeks now. She went to the groomers 1st of January and came back with slight rectal bleeding and a seeping mucus that had a foul smell from her rectum. She's had anal gland problems in the past. She has high liver enzymes. She has been in and out of the vet for several days of IV's. Her appetite has been on some days ok and other days she refuses to eat. She went in for 2 ultrasounds and both showed same result. No obvious masses anywhere but an enlarged gallbladder. The second time they also did an aspiration and it came back inconclusive. She received 2 full days of IV's at the hospital. She was released with cyclosporine, metrodiazole, Baytril, urodiol, Dernamarin.It's been day 5 of the cyclosporine and we haven't seen major signs of improvement.Question is when do we make the decision to switch her to prednisone? If so what could happen to her?Also why does she shiver especially after eating and randomly during the day?Overall she does seem active and energetic. She's not lethargic. She does sleep after exercise. Many times she shows interest in eating but she spits out the food.At the hospital she showed modest improvements in values but they said it would take time for significant changes. However they recommended that I retest her blood this week with our vet. Is this necessary?
My dog is 13 years old and recently had GDV surgery (on
My dog is 13 years old and recently had GDV surgery (on Christmas). He has been getting back to normal, but seems restless at times, panting heavy here and there and very rarely after drinking too much water, he gags some and then appears to want to vomit, but nothing comes out. I worry that he has another bloat. He is not too active at his age. He has no activity before he eats or after. We monitor his water as well so that he doesn't get too much air in his stomach. He has regular bowel movements and is otherwise not lethargic. Appears very alert. We've been to the vet, but since we worry about another bloat, I am concerned that he gets a gas build up occasionally and it makes him uncomfortable.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's very alert and acts normal. He has arthritis and we just got him back on Novox (which I know can be rough on a dog's stomach). His eating is spread out to 3 times a day and he's on a broad spectrum antibiotic for another issue involving his right sinus and eye discharge. My dog also has hypthyroidism. He takes a pill twice a day for it.

I got a new St. Bernard female puppy (Ava). The breeder was
Hello, I got a new St. Bernard female puppy (Ava). The breeder was awful. She has a UTI, URI, and coccidia. She is 8 weeks and I've had her for a week. I have 2 other dogs, one (Odie) of which I found out has MRSP skin infection (he previously had incisional mrsp infection after TPLO which was horrific.) I have been trying to pick up water and clean and wash everything. My 3rd dog (Bart) licks her bottom quite a bit even though I seperate a lot, I have let them play. I started both of them on the medication (starts with A). My lab with the mrsp I did not because of his reaction to med history and all of the meds he is on right now. In addition, he has been on Pred 5 mg daily for 5 years for Ulcerative Colitis. Bart has infrequently also licked Odies bottom. How likely is it that Odie will get coccidia? I am pretty overwhelmed. Thank you. Odie does not lick anyone's bottom. :-)
