My 12 year old Bichon was diagnosed with diabetes and
My 12 year old Bichon was diagnosed with diabetes and cushings a year ago. After several months of adjusting her insulin dose, she was doing great on 11 units x2 daily and 7 mg trilostane 2x daily. About three weeks ago her appetite just disappeared. The vet ran all kinds of tests which revealed nothing, and had me stop the trilostane for four days and then start back once a day instead of twice daily, and drop the insulin to 6 units 2x day. My pup still has very little appetite, and is lethargic. She has also started having shaking episodes, which has happened on a couple of occasions. Any thoughts on how to get her appetite and energy back, and stop the shaking? Her coat has also gotten thinner recently.
My 12 year Pekingese who is recovering from IVDD surgery 3
My 12 year Pekingese who is recovering from IVDD surgery 3 months post-op was diagnosed with staph pseudintermedius and was treated with Chloramphenicol 500mg 3x times a day for 4 weeks. After completing week 3 we noticed he started showing side effects of wobbly weak legs called the vet and he has recommend we stop medication and switch to Zeniquin 50mg 1 pill a day for 21 additional days. No follow up or blood test was performed before switching to this new medication. I'm afraid of similar or worse side effects. Is this a safer alternative? I'm really worried. My dog has been through so much already. The staph pseudintermedius seems to have cleared up and I don't know if I should change vets? Stop all medication or just follow instructions. Please help!

My dogs first day on vet recommended 500mg 3x times a day
My dogs first day on vet recommended 500mg 3x times a day chloramphenicol to treat staph pseudintermedius. He took his pill dosage 1 & 2 earlier in the day just fine. However his last dosage of the day he refused to take and kept spitting it out. I tried everything but failed. Is it ok to miss a dosage, will try again tomorrow morning and I will check with my vet first thing in the morning on alternatives if all else fails. Just need answers now for our peace of mind.
Dr Scott, My Chihuahua has been sick for about 2 months,
Dr Scott, My Chihuahua has been sick for about 2 months, he's been to his vet repeatedly and we still can't find relief for him. He's had a cough, gagging, wheezing, sneezing...etc. He was exposed to Kennel Cough in July and many different medications have been tried. I am hoping to get a new perspective possibly.
