Ive given my dog all the medication my vet suggested
Ive given my dog all the medication my vet suggested tussigon 3 times a day and cephalaxin twice a day and its all finished and hes no better. Hes not eating because when he eats or drinks he starts gagging and throws up bile and foam. He was like a puppy until a couple of months ago and he started dry heaving once or twice a day and now hes gagging once or twice an hour. I dont want to put him down but the 2 vets ive seen hv cost me a 1000.00 and hes getting worse. Can you please read my earlier correspondence and advise. Do you know a vet near 94521 who really cares and can help my dog please

My 11 year old Yorkie has a diagnosis of chronic
My 11 year old Yorkie has a diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis for about three years. She is on a Prescription low fat dog food. She has had occasional flares but mostly stable. She took her Heartguard a month ago and developed pancreatitis right after. Her lipase level was 5200. She is clinically improved eating again and no vomiting. She had a repeat lipase this week by her vet and it was 4000. She felt this was good that it had come down. She recommended a change from Heartguard ( taken this her whole life) to Interceptor plus in case the beef in the Heartguard caused the pancreatitis. My questions are as follows: 1. What is a normal lipase in a dog with chronic pancreatitis? If this lipase is still abnormal, does she need any further treatment if clinically improving.? 2. Would it be safe to give the heart worm tab with the lipase at 4000 or should I wait until down more? 3. Is Interceptor plus as safe as Heartguard? 4. Have you ever seen Heartguard cause a flare of pancreatitis?
My 13 week puppy was recently having diarrhea. The vet gave
Hello, my 13 week puppy was recently having diarrhea. The vet gave us Metronidazole (2x/day every 12 hrs), we gave him one dose friday noon, another Saturday noon (forgot the morning dose), then once dose around 730 am. He had lack of appetite this morning, was able to eat lunch, but then vomited twice toward the evening. He just had diarrhea about 30 minutes ago. What should we do?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the puppy eat anything unusual?Customer: I gave him a fingernail size piece of banana to see if he'd like it, otherwise just the usual food and treatsJA: What is the puppy's name?Customer: KonaJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Kona?Customer: He was only dewormed twice, which I'm not sure what is required. His diarrhea contained a worm-shaped object, but it seemed harder than a worm. about 1 inch long.

My dog has an intestinal blockage, I took her to the vet & they gave her cereian & told us to give her canned pumpkin to try & pass it. I kinda wanted to get a second opinion bc im pretty sure it's a rustic cuff bracelet so I'm worried she can't pass it. It's a bracelet covered in beads with small studs on them.
