Is there any good over the counter remedy for a dog with hypothyroidism? I cannot afford vet visit and tests, but have this diagnosis from a few years ago. She was on soloxine .10 twice a day to start. She is presently suffering with this as well as seborreah dermatitis.

I had a good expeirence the first time I used you so I would like your advice again: I am going to be getting a puppy from someone who is not a breeder, it was an accidental. The breed of the dog is a queensland, and what age can she be separated from the mother? Currently she is 4 weeks old I know it should be somewhere between 6 and 8 weeks old.I give my dogs all their booster shots but can you tell me what schedule and time frame for the parvo and booster shots for the puppy as well as wormer I currently use Pancur wormer on my older queensland.Thank YouMary Ferreira

I noticed that my dog's gums are darker this morning than

Hi. I noticed that my dog's gums are darker this morning than normal. He is a 3 year old yellow lab mix and has healthy teeth. He has not been over heated at all - I live in northern Michigan and the temp has been in the 60's and 70's over the last week. The gum just above his teeth are his normal pink, but they are quite dark starting about 1/2 inch above that. He shows no sign of illness and is pooping and peeing normally. Tghis happened overnight.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: Bullet. He was found as a stray on a military rifle range when he was 9 months old. The only new thing is that he has a big bone that he has been chewing on - it has not splintered - it is too big and tough for that. This is not the first time he has had a bone like this and he has not been chewing it more than usualJA: 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 Bullet?Customer: just the change in gum color. what can cause that?JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Our regular vet is not a believer in annual booster

Our regular vet is not a believer in annual booster vaccines. Our female border collie had her puppy shots and one year boosters. We would like to have her spayed and every where that we call want her vaccinations up to date. Our vet insists this is not necessary but unfortunately she is not able to do surgery herself. Do you know of clinics in the west GTA that would support us?

A week ago my 6 year old Schnauzer was suffering from

A week ago my 6 year old Schnauzer was suffering from vomiting and severe scratching with some hair loss I took him to the Vet emergency and he received a shot of Diphenhydramine and dexamethasone and I was told to get some Benadryl. It helped and After several days I stopped the Benadryl but now the itching has come back (not as bad) but more hair loss and abrasions where he has scratched over and over. I started giving Benadryl again but it does not last as long about six hours and I fear prolong use on a dog. What to do? Will this stop on its own. I hate to see him uncomfortable. One other thing he received a rabies and booster shot a week before the event.
