I have a senior Pomeranian, 16 years old. Blind and deaf,

I have a senior Pomeranian, 16 years old. Blind and deaf, but still active for a senior. For about 2 months, he has been having bouts of watery and dark diarrhea, for no reason at all. No food change or eating table food. I will cook him rice and chicken, and it will clear up for a few days, and then it starts again. Took him to the vet 4 weeks ago, and tests came back negative for parasites and bacteria. They gave him a shot to calm his abdomen down, and sent me home with a suspenion antibiotic that supposedly acts as a probiotic. He was fine for 3 weeks. Now, 3 days ago, he has started again. tThis time it was very watery and almost black. Then it turned a lighter brown, but had mucus in it. He had no episodes then for 12 hrs. I gave him some white rice mixed with some pumpkin this evening, and within 2 hrs, he had light brown diarrhea the consistency of pudding. I'm worried that this chronic diarrhea could be an indication that he is coming to the end of his life due to organs starting to fail.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. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: He has an enlarged heart, is on Enalapril. And a Grade 4 (I think) heart murmur. He was confiscated from a puppy mill raid 11 years ago and thats when we adopted him. His appetite and drinking is normal. Always hungry though.JA: OK. Got it.

I have two elder Australian Shepherd's. The first one is 15

I have two elder Australian Shepherd's. The first one is 15 years 3 months and has congestive heart failure, is deaf, is blind, has arthritis, and canine cognitive disorder. She paces or just stands and stares, but one time during the day she will have a burst of energy and act like a pup, this only lasts less than minutes.My next Australian Shepherd is 14 years 8 months and has no muscle mass left, she is barely able to hold herself up and her back end shakes when she is standing. Also she is very thin. She is also deaf, has difficultly seeing, and she has congestive heart failure. Yesterday she fell while standing. I called to make an appt. with my vet to have both dogs put down at the same time.I also have a third Aussie who is twelve, she is ok, except for the arthritis and being deaf.I am unsure if I am making the right decision on putting both dogs down at the same time.

She is a 12 year old miniature Beagle and she is on 3 medicines

She is a 12 year old miniature Beagle and she is on 3 medicines for seizures. She takes too much in my opinion. She takes 3 - 11.2 mg phenobarbital twice a day at 7 am and 7 pm also takes 250 mg of levitracitam 3 times a day at 7 am 3:30 pm and 11 pm. AND she takes 1/2 of a thyroxine which says 0.2 mg twice a day at 7 am and 7 pm. She has recently become totally deaf. My thought after reading and researching is to take the phenobarbital down to 2 twice a day inst ad of 3 - I was going to start by removing a 7 pm dose of one for about a week and then move to the 7 am dose of 1 for a week so at the end of 2 weeks she would only be off of 2 phenobarbital pills total. Sorry for the lengthJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the beagle's name?Customer: TuffyJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Tuffy?Customer: She has blown both of her rear actsJA: OK. Got it.
