I have an 11 week old cocker spaniel (we had her a week) She

I have an 11 week old cocker spaniel (we had her a week) She is a purebred, and was vet checked by the breeder. But, we did not really believe the report that well (it stated there was a repaired umbillical hernia but we didn't think it was repaired) So we had her checked over by our vet.He confirmed the other vet did not repair the hernia, and will have to be fixed when she is spayed. He checked her over and gave her a vaccine. I did mention we noticed a slight cough once in a while, but he stated her airways were clear.I go home, and in the morning the pup is gagging and puking, what seems to be every few seconds. Sometimes there was nothing, sometimes foam, then once or twice just liquid. They stated that she could have had a bug, and the vaccine weakened her system and made the symptoms more pronounced, or and/or an allergic reaction to the vaccine. They kept her overnight and we got her back yesterday morning. Everything seemed fine all day, she played and played and played, ate.. very rambunctious. Today she is coughing bad again, and not active. But, not really lethargic either. Just lazy. Not wanting to play or really be active. The more active she is, the more her breathing sounds congested. My vet is not available and I am not sure if this is a dire emergency or not.

I have a 1 year old sheltie that is the worst eater. She

I have a 1 year old sheltie that is the worst eater. She could care less about food. Plays all day and you would think she should be starving. She is on the smaller side (only 9 lbs) but I can barely get her to eat 1/4 cup of hills ideal balance twice a day. Our vet says she is fine and just a grazer. Is ther anything I can try to improve her eating habits.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name?Customer: BellaJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bella?Customer: I usually end up mixing some boiled chicken breast in her food, but even then she picks at the food and basically eats the chicken. Other than that she is great

I have an 11 year old Shih Tzu named Nina...she has slowly

Hi! My name is***** have an 11 year old Shih Tzu named Nina...she has slowly not been eating a lot for about a month now. She was eating her dry food but would not want her treats; now there are certain foods she will try to eat but then has thrown them up. To give you a history: she is on Denamarin for her high liver enzymes that she has had at least 2 or three years. She had her yearly ultrasound a few weeks ago which showed enlarged adrenal glands. She has some nodules in her kidneys, with the vet is not too worried about right now. He will be doing some testing soon for Cushing's since her glands are enlarged. She has no symptoms of the disease at present. She had a general blood test this past Friday which revealed nothing in terms of why she is not eating. Bowel and bladder are normal and she is drinking water. She hacks several times a day. The doctor started her on Pepcid, 5mg twice a day. She will be 13 in April. Our vet is out of the office until Wednesday and I did not want to go to an ER if we could monitor her until she can see the vet. I hope that you can answer my question as to what to do for her? She acts as if she is hungry, but if afraid to eat anything. She is not lethargic.....thanks for any help you can give me! Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I have a 5-6 year old Westie/ cross and most of last night

Hi, my name is***** have a 5-6 year old Westie/***** ***** cross and most of last night he found it very hard to settle. He would try to sleep, then get up and pace. I was letting him out each time to see if he needed to toilet and the first time he did pass faeces which appeared normal. After the first time he didn't do anything more but when he was pacing he woud have his tail down and his head and he looked really uncomfortable. He did eat a little grass but he hasn't vomited. About 4.30 am he went to sleep and mainly seems okay this morning. He was alright in his usual walk, passed faeces normally but then a little diarrhea (which he often does) and he had eaten breakfast and is now resting. I think he was in pain last night but not sure where it hurt, or if it is serious. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: He is very excitable in nature and quite emotionally needy, which we think is because of his past - although we know little about that aside from the fact when we got him 8 months ago he had serious ear infections which we are still treating.
