My chihuahua is older and is having trouble with movement in
My chihuahua is older and is having trouble with movement in his back legs. He also is congested and lethargic with a dry, hacking cough. I guess its likely he has degenerative myelopathy plus congestive heart failure. If so, I think its best we euthanize. But before I do that, I'm wondering if there is any theory under which he could be suffering all these symptoms from something that could be cured or treated?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Julio - 12-13JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about julio?Customer: Not that I know of... they would have to ask me.

I have a new puppy. Has been home for 3 days. He is 6 weeks old. He started vomiting a couple hours ago. He won't eat or drink anything and now has started having diarrhea. Up until now, he has been eating and drinking fine. I got him from the pound, he was neutered the day before yesterday and is on antibiotics twice per day for some small pustules that are on his skin. I was planning to take him to the vet in 2 weeks for check up and 2nd set of shots. Should I take him tomorrow if he's still vomiting and diarrhea?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess.

My dog ate about 30 minutes ago a piece of the plastic clip
my dog ate about 30 minutes ago a piece of the plastic clip (hard and jagged) that was in a new shirt of my husband's. He was chewing it under the table and I can't find any other pieces of it anywhere. He acts okay now, but I think that he should vomit it up instead of going through his system. I know that hydrogen peroxide will accomplish this task, but don't know how much to give him. He is a 26 lb. 9 yr old rat terrier.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your husband's rat terrier will be able to digest that. What is the rat terrier's name?Customer: SnickersJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your husband's rat terrier?Customer: he is on clindamycin 75 mg capsules 2twice a day due to having a swollen toe...which was caused by being stepped on on Christmas Day.
