For the last 3 months maxie has been getting worms regularly
For the last 3 months maxie has been getting worms regularly .... about every 2-3 weeks I see a moving white worms in her poop. I dispose of her poop regularly of not imedealty withing the day. She never eats her poop or cares for other dogs left behinds. My vet treated her the first round with 3 doses of a small oral tablet. She is a 30 pound cockapoo. The next 4 doses were 3 days of white powder medicine given with her food. She ate all of it each time. She is regularly given flea and heartworm meds. The vet says he has never seen fleas tics or their bites on her. I recently had bats extracted from our roof thinking their poop may be the issue ..... no bats and we have worms today again. This time in her poop and on her anus. Please help should I bomb my home incase the previous owners may have had fleas and they are in our home? Can I stop something all in the yard to kill anything there she may be picking it up from. It's getting expensive treating her and I hate to think of all the discomfort may be causing her I'm just at a loss with what to do from hereJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?Customer: Digest what ? MaxieJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Maxie?Customer: Her medical history is worms !!! She was hit by a car a year ago and it tore her backopen she had surgery to remove skin no following health issues from that tragedy. She gets frequent yeast infections in her ears that we treat 2 times a week to keep them healthy.

A month ago, my dog who is up to date on rabies shots bit my sister in the hand when she was trimming the hair around her mouth. The bite was deep enough that she went to her doctor who gave her a one-week antibiotic. The swelling and pain went away after that. Now, her whole hand has started to swell up. Is this a continuing result of the bite and what should she do? Thank you. Christine

My dog seems to occasionally be opening and closing his
My dog seems to occasionally be opening and closing his mouth. He had some sort of episode last night. His mouth was shaking and his teeth were chattering and the sound was so loud from his teeth hitting against each other. I was worried he was having some sort of seizure. Today he seems fine but every so often he opens and closes his mouth. He is a Chihuahua and Boston Terrier mix. He is a year old and around 13 pounds. It's hard to look in his mouth but I did notice from day one that I got him he does have some plaque build up on his teeth at the back of his mouth. He is a rescue dog. This happened one time before about over a month ago. I do plan on bringing him in to see his vet but just kind of want an idea as to what it could be? Of course I always worry about the worst case scenario and think he's having seizures which I hope not.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: He also almost begs me for help when the constant teeth chattering thing happens. His head was sort of shaking too but possibly from his teeth chattering? I know it's not a thing of him being cold. It's definitely something else.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your Boston terrier?Customer: Just that he is a Chihuahua mix for sure and Boston Terrier is a guess but most likely. Got him from Rat terrier rescue even though he isn't a rat terrier. Other than that, he is acting normal. I did notice yesterday his anal glands were smelly so possible his glands but don't see how that could be related. I remember the last time he had this episode his glands were smelly then too. That happens to him sometimes for a day or so but then he eventually expresses his glands on his own because the smell is gone. Thanks.
