My dog has been sick for a few weeks now. It started with

My dog has been sick for a few weeks now. It started with blood in her urine and was treated as an iurinary infection with antibiotics. Then after the antibiotics her stool were watery and loose plus she was vomiting often while still stringing to pee. Took her back to vet and found a stone in her bladder. She is scheduled for surgery Fri but I'm worried because tonight in her cage she had an accident while I was gone (diarrhea) and while cleaning it up I found a small skinny slimy black worm. Yuck!!! Could that be from her??JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?Customer: NO she has been put off her regular diet and being given a little hills digestive care canned food mixed with fortiflora-a probiotic powderJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: Female havaneese 12lbs

My 8 year old female Basset Hound, Bailee's stomach gurgles

My 8 year old female Basset Hound, Bailee's stomach gurgles and she expresses a need to go out and eat grass. It also looks like her inner eyelid is a bit over her eyes (from the inside of her eye) and her whites are red. She seems a bit more tired than usual. She has had stomach issues for a long time...on and off. I have recently started feeding her Merrick's limited ingredients canned food, lamb and salmon. I used to have a Lab and fed her IAMS mini chunks. She passed away at 17, 2 months ago. She had no stomach issues. I still have some of that food left and have been giving Bailee some of that with her soft food and as a snack. I don't usually have snacks for my dogs or feed them table scraps. They have eaten raw carrots, potatoes, shredded sharp cheddar, some lettuce, and frozen blueberries. I have bought some frozen small bones from the freezer section at the pet store to help keep her teeth clean. I believe that is her diet. She is not one to eat a lot like the Lab. The Lab would get into the trash and steal food from the table if you didn't keep an eye on it. Bailee seems to be obedient to the point of waiting for me to tell her it is ok to eat whatever I place on the floor for her. Thank you for your insight into my Baby Basset's issue. PamJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if Bailee will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bailee?Customer: She is smaller than the average basset, but both of her parents were supposed to be full blooded. We were not furnished with papers. She does not have any ear issues and loves to hunt rabbit. When she was about a year or so she swallowed a baby rabbit whole...LIVE...it was a real unpleasant situation for me and my family, but Bailee was very happy. I called the vet and they said she would be fine and with a day or so she was up and running around like nothing happened. She did lay around for a few hours I suppose digesting the meal. I think that is all I have.

My almost 18 week old female basset hound has had several

My almost 18 week old female basset hound has had several bouts of excessive urination, and is having one again. The first time it happened we took a urine sample to the vet. It showed an increase in white and red blood cells, but no bacteria. The vet said it could be a possible UTI and put her on antibiotics. The urination decreased to a normal rate for two weeks or so, then came back. The vet thought that the week of antibiotics may not have cleared the UTI, so he prescribed a stronger antibiotic. The new drug upset the dogs stomach and she threw up everyday for 4 days. The vet said to stop the drug. At that time, he did an "in house" urine test and said that it showed no signs of a UTI, and said that Ladybird should be fine. That was a month ago, and today, the urinating started again. When she gets it, her pee is very different than it normally is. Normally, her urine is light to medium yellow. When she urinates excessively, it is completely clear, in much larger quantities and frequency then normal. She doesn't seem to be able to control it, either, and will squat abruptly, or go while she's trying to run outside. Her eating and drinking habits are the same and she weighs 22 pounds. She has seemed a little tired for two days, but not excessively so. I have been giving her cranberry supplements since after the second bout of excessive urination. Any ideas of what this could be?

I have a litter of 8 puppies. They are 8 weeks old. My vet

I have a litter of 8 puppies. They are 8 weeks old. My vet gave them shots and dewormer at 6 weeks. He also gives me Ponzuril to administer for prevention of Coccidia. Yesterday one puppy had a loose stool. It was brown like pudding. It cleared up today. But this evening another one got the same thing. They are both eating and drinking and running and playing. I keep the kennel clean and change out the water 2 times a day. They have no fever and the room is puppy proofed. I am puzzled and wondered if There is anything I can do until I can get to my vet tomorrow? Just worried! I am puzzled.

I have a 15 month old shichon who is a very picky eater.

I have a 15 month old shichon who is a very picky eater. Won't eat kibble unless it's a very last resort. He will starve himself before eating kibble. He will eat certain canned foods but I am reluctant to give him canned food. I was considering giving him stella and chewys freeze dried chicken patties because he devours them. Is this a recommended meal? It has great reviews.
