My daughter and I are on vacation with our two Lowchens.
I am Renee. My daughter and I are on vacation with our two Lowchens. When we came home from the beach this afternoon Tovah Rose had a snack (some yogurt) and a nap. Emily and I left the dogs in their crates, went down to watch the sunset. When we came back and gave them their dinner, Tovah was not at all interested and refused to eat. She has had her tail tucked up tight between her legs. She has been laying in the corner most of the evening. I took the dogs for a short walk about 8:00. Tovah peed twice and pooped. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: Sorry, I accidentally hit send. She walked with her tail up and seemed okay until after she pooped and then she again seemed to want to tuck her tail down. She just followed me into the bedroom and seemed to want to get on the bed. That's where she is now. She is not showing any other symptoms...tail tucked, no appetite, lethargy. We did not take her temperature, but we could do that. She clearly doesn't feel well.

I need a vet who is an expert in dog nutrition. My 22 pound
I need a vet who is an expert in dog nutrition. My 22 pound possibly poodle mix dog Winston (age about 10) presented with very high triglycerides last May (2500!) and was put on a low fat diet, Royal Canin Gastrointestinal low fat kibble plus a little of their canned food. By August they were down to 800 and now are 476.But just now he was diagnosed with diabetes. We started insulin two days ago. His other blood work is fairly normal.What on earth do I feed him? With diabetes you want low carb. For triglycerides, low fat (although, this confuses me, because my experience is that low carb lowers triglycerides a lot in people. But, the low fat food did help). So I have no idea what to do.Also, how much do I feed him, calorie wise?Finally, is there a link between these two diseases, high triglycerides and diabetes? His thyroid was a tiny bit below range, but the doctor didn't think it was a significant issue. Cushing's, maybe?

My dog has been vomiting on and off since yesterday morning.
My dog has been vomiting on and off since yesterday morning. I recently did a deep cleaning of the house and used lysol disinfectant spray on his bed. He is a frequent licker and I'm afraid his stomach is upset from that. Other than making sure he drinks, is there anything else I can do?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?Customer: No, he only receives his dog food from us. And since vomiting, I have put a tiny bit of chicken broth in his water to keep him hydrated.because otherwise, he won't drink.JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: No I'm just concerned about the vomiting. Thank you
