This past week my 11 year old retriever is constipated and itchy. There are no fleas. He does get allergies occasionally but never constipated. Seems like he wants to be where it is cooler. Last week he wanted to sit out in the rain and every time I brought him back into the garage when I was working he went back to the rain. He's acting depressed. What could be wrong with him? And what should I feed him to see if I can get his bowels moving again?

Did the dog eat anything unusual?Customer: His name is Gus.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gus?Customer: I can't think of anything.

We have a rescued older german shepherd for a year. about 3
We have a rescued older german shepherd for a year. about 3 months ago, she started getting sick each day, not wanting to eat. We have had blood tests, stool tests, all negative. we have changed food to vegetarian only, and feed her with both dry and some canned food so she now gets about a cup of food down a day -- she use to eat 2 cups a day. She was 74 lbs, is now about 69 lbs. she seems happy, but still coughs and gets sick every morning about 530 am - -at first the vomit was thick and yellow -- now it is much less, no food involved, just a spit type of vomit -mostly clear. We are at a loss, and so is the vet; a very good one we have seen for years. Have started her on Pepcid and Benadryl each day, and doing a worm treatment in case of microscopic something. Can you suggest anything else to try? We are going to get xray of stomach; have checked the teeth (normal), but also looking at the throat. Please help, we don't want to lose her. thanks

I took my 8 pound poodle who is 8 yrs old to the Vet today
I took my 8 pound poodle who is 8 yrs old to the Vet today for vomiting. She has been vomiting once a day for a week. Stools seem ok. She still acted fine other than vomiting. The vet treated her with Famotidine 20mg 1/4 tablet once a day. And Cerenia tab 16 mg 1/2 tab a day. I gave them to her tonight about 3 hrs ago and now she is trembling and acting weird. I let her outside and she went to the grass but not sure what she did i.e. eat grass, poop, or vomit. She is licking her mouth and trying to tell me something. She acts like she wants to vomit. I think something is wrong! kathy

I have an 7 year old female dog who has had a bit of loss of appetite over the past 2 days. Yesterday she started pawing at her mouth on the left side and I notice her gums are red and a bit inflamed on that side of her mouth. I am out of work and money is an issue. What are my options for her?
