My lab is 13. He has been diagnosed with bladder cancer in
My lab is 13. He has been diagnosed with bladder cancer in March and he strains to wee. He is now incontinent for urine and leaks everywhere but otherwise seems ok. He has often got blood in his pee. Since two weeks ago his urine smells really foul. I had a urine sample tested for bladder infection in the hope this might be the cause so antibiotics might lessen the smell but the test has come back negative. Is it normal for his wee to smell so foul ? I am wondering if it therefore time for him to go...?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?Customer: HoyoJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Hoyo?Customer: No there is no treatment ultimately for his cancer but I hoped I could keep him going while he likes his food and short walks but the smell of the urine on the floors is now impossible however often I mop

My dog started to develop to yellowish drainage coming from
My dog started to develop green to yellowish drainage coming from his eyes as well as a foul infectious smell coming from his mouth..This was after he was potentially exposed to something at a doggy daycare that notified customers that there was bordatella going around..He had a bad cough for a day but thankfully that went away on its own however the eye drainage and the foul smell persisted..I took him to my vet and she prescribed clindamycin twice a day.My question is how soon should I expect to see relief of symptoms..It has been about 8 days and he still has a very small amount of drainage but not as bad..He eats drinks and plays as if nothing is wrong..

My dog ate some spilled flour on the floor. At first i unfortunately didn't know any better and thought maybe she had a cold. I got an antibiotic for her. I didn't know anything about wtetching vut just figured it out now. She is not doing the wretching except for a few seconds a few times a day. Will she be ok? Oh dear... It happened on Thursday and i thought she had a cold on friday so my vet gave me an rx for her. She wasn't seen at the vets ofc. I was trying to save money due to my recent scoliosis dx on myself. She is sleeping now and i havea vaporizer on her now too.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Jessilynn and she is 8 yrs old. Otherwise healthy and great muscle tone. She is a shih tzu. We walk an hour a day and i love her dearly. I made a terrible mistake and didnt think anything horrible when it happened because she has had a fourth piece of toast here and there. She ate perhaps a half a tsp of it fJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jessilynn?Customer: Fyi
I have a 9 yr old 22lb Yorkie mix named Fatty. He is healthy
Hi there, I have a 9 yr old 22lb Yorkie mix named Fatty. He is healthy as far as I know. I had him groomed w our other dog Bones yesterday, Bones came home and is fine. Fatty has been wheezing/coughing/dry heaving since I picked him up. I can't really explain it, it's like an asthma attack.....he was doing it pretty consistently for the first few hrs and then stopped during the evening. I made a vet appt for tmrw already, I was going to cancel it but he's just done it again, once in the last 10 hrs. I just want to know if it's something I should get looked at or is it just from a tight lead or shampoo allergy etc and it'll pass. Thanks!

I 15 year old Chihuahua just had spay surgery. She had been
Hi there! I 15 year old Chihuahua just had spay surgery. She had been ill for a while and we opted to get it done last Monday. Her uterus was infected and had a growth which did not seem to concern the Dr. much. Before the surgery, she had stopped eating much, and I fed her soup and pedialyte with a dropper for several days. Surgery went well and she woke up from the anesthesia quite fast. She is home now. Still not eating much even though I have tried to offer her many different choices... This morning, when taking her out, she began sort of hyperventilating..and then she collapsed on the floor.. This had happened twice before the surgery, including the night prior.. I want to think she is weak due to her lack of appetite but I am worried that this is something else.... She is resting and seems ok but every so often, she begins breathing rapidly.. Is there anything I can do?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: She is on antibiotics and pain medication.... blood work prior to surgery was unremarkable...pretty much within limits but this could have changed... there was pus in her uterus when they did the surgery...
