My dog may have worms and had her first dose of frontal

My dog may have worms and had her first dose of frontal plus. Took it with dinner and vomited about 4.5 hours later. She has emptied her stomach and wants water which makes her throw up more. Should I let her have the water! Are there any serious side effects I should worry about? Also will the dose be effective even though she threw it up? Thanks

We have an appointment scheduled for the cleaning. But as of tonight he is still shaking, labored breathing, urinated in the floor(VERY UNCOMMON), just lays around, he's eating 20 oz of Purina prepared meals, drinking very little water, has excess saliva. He is normally a very active dog. PLEASE HELP!

Our German Shepherd died unexpectedly. He was in the care of

Our White German Shepherd died unexpectedly. He was in the care of a Vet/Kennel as we were away for a week. He had no signs of illness when we dropped him- he played, ate, and seemed to be in normal, good shape. A few days after we dropped him off, we got a call from the vet saying that he was not eating and had very bloody stool and also he had blood coming from his nose. We were shocked as he didn't show any prior symptoms. We lost him in less than 24 hours after he first showed signs of something being wrong. The vet doesn't have much idea to what happened. It is also worth noting that he did escape from his kennel a day before the symptoms started (the space he escaped to is mostly enclosed though). We are debating about doing an autopsy, but wonder if you may have any insights into what might have happened. Thank you.

My precious dog Sandy passed away last night after intense

My precious dog Sandy passed away last night after intense labored breathing. She was 2 months shy of Turing 15. She is a Shepard Eskimo mix and had SARDS along with hearing loss. Other than that the vet we used to take her to said she was healthy and loved. The night she died she was acting strange earlier that evening but then got up and ate dinner. She was laying down and just started to experience labored breathing and wouldn't get up. Shortly after she took her last deep breath and passed. I am devistated and I just need to know what happened to her. The research I've done says it could have been a heart attack but she was so calm and it came out of nowhere.

My Westie had a very large hard lump on the right side of

My Westie had a very large hard lump on the right side of his neck show up about a month ago. The vet said he was pretty sure it was a thyroid tumor and nothing but radiation could be done. Once he stopped eating we would need to put him down. He's had a couple of bad days he didn't eat but other days you could tell nothing was ever wrong with him. The lump has suddenly become very spongy feeling instead of hard and feels like there is fluid settled at the bottom part of it. Is this normal for a thyroid tumor? The weight of the lump obviously bothers him and I'm wondering if it could be drained? No biopsy or CT's have been done.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the dog's name?Customer: SnickersJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: We've noticed when the lump is very hard he seems to have balance issues and acts disoriented but a day later he can be playing in the pool and trotting around

  • My 12 year old Schnauzer had a really long mucous discharge after she urinated today. I've also noticed that she has a problem with urine leakage. And since it was just the 4th and she was scared to death. It was really hard getting her out. And she is not drinking much water at all
  • My dog is cocerspainal and she is 40 pds she is healthy and doesn't take any medication. How much alprazelam or zanax does she need for a night of stoms. She claws us to death.
  • My King Charles cavalier, age 11 years 8 months with a #6 heart murmur passed away last week. He did not get his evening dose of Enparil. Could his death have been prevented if he had his medication on time? Also, if the dose were increased could he have lived longer?
