My maltese's eye rims on s right eye are almost entirely

My maltese's eye rims on his right eye are almost entirely pink and the rims on the left eye are black, as they should be. People are constantly saying, "He's so cute but does he have an eye infection? What's wrong around his eye?" We paid a LOT of money for him so it's very frustrating and disheartening. Can anything be done to fix the problem? I've read that people frequently tattoo their show dogs' eye rims where there may be a pigment issue, like in my pup. From what I've read, people are saying that it is not painful for them in the way that tattooing is for us. Would love some feedback on this! Thank you

My 9 year old Boston Terrier has had periodic seizures and

My 9 year old Boston Terrier has had periodic seizures and is on Phenobarbital and Potassium Bromide. This morning she is walking around bumping into things and then standing in corners or between furniture as if she can't figure out how to get out. Within the last 3-4 hours she has had 3 full seizures lasting about 10 minutes each. When she came out of each seizure session, she went back to the pacing, bumping into walls, and standing in corners. Do you have any suggestions for me to try while I wait for the vet's office to open? Thank you -JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the Boston terrier's name?Customer: SammyJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sammy?Customer: She has been drinking water and did eat a bit this morning - only because she ran into and then stepped into the bowls.

I have a 13 year old female pug. When a dog is scratched in the right place it's leg will twitch. Just a couple weeks ago she began doing that whenever you touched her lower stomach. This week, she has begun to do it while standing and not being touched. She is deaf, has mild arthroscopic, and is slightly over weight. She really doesn't get enough exercise.

my puppy eats her dog bedding that is stuffed with foam. I have had her treated a month ago when she started passing string and a zipper from the bedding. She is still doing this and her sides are now poofy. Could this be from the bed stuffing and will it hurt her? She still poops, but no vomit.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your puppy eat anything unusual?Customer: just the dog bedding, plastic bottles, and her foam stuffed squeaky toysJA: What is the dog's name?Customer: SpriJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Spur?Customer: just concerned over the poofy sides as am concerned it may be full of the bedding

My dog is in heat first time. She keeps crying and licking

my dog is in heat for the first time. She keeps crying and licking her vagina and hind legs. She was doing this every ten minutes this morning. Now she is so tired from not sleeping and doing this all morning she passed out asleep. I called my vet on Friday about this issue and they said it was nothing to worry about. Then over the weekend it subsided, but now it is back. I was reading on the internet that is not normal. What should I do?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help My. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about My?Customer: We have an appointment to get her spayed on Friday. Should I be worried about her pain?JA: It's hard to know for sure. The Veterinarian will figure it out.Customer: They acted like it was no big deal when I called. Are you telling me to call again and insist on an appoinment?JA: No. I'm the Veterinarian's Assistant.Customer: Oh, I see. She is swollen around her vagina. I notice a bit of an order but not bad. It maybe from her licking so much. I can not tell. She eats and wants to play but cries out in pain and then has to reach for her back side and bite and lick
