Capsules twice per day.Is that too much?Can it cause her to get weak or her bladder be out of control.She also has frequent diarrhea.She has been taking it for about a month and is supposed to take it another month.Her nose is still as bad as ever.Dry cracking open and sluffing off in chunks.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mya?Customer: Generally she has been in good health.She was treated for a stomach virus that had caused severe diarrhea as she started on the doxycycline.I can't recall that antibiotic.She was put on a canned food for digestive health.It has helped and she also has to take vitamin e ,fish oil,and a probiotic along with the doxycycline.She still has a very good appetite and drinks a lot.She has always been a heavy water drinker.She seems to be weak when walking or trying to climb on the couch.She sometimes falls back or just gives up.

I have two questions. My dog has an external tumor below is rectum, that's the vet called it and he said I should put Neosporin on it to keep my dog from licking it. Also, my dog has been chewing on his tail and now he has a sore. Can I use the Neosporin on that as well and put on a cone on him during the day so he won't lick or chew on it. He's an outdoor door so I would have to take the cone off at night so he can get in his doghouse.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 and age?Customer: He will be 15 next month....his name is*****: How old is Oreo?Customer: 14 years 11 monthsJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Oreo?Customer: He's starting to have some problems climbing stairs, his hips don't seem to support him. I wonder if he's starting to experience hip displaysia.

My dog has tongue ulcers that are preventing him from eating

My dog has tongue ulcers that are preventing him from eating as well as he did. Our vet said to try ST37 but that seemed towork at first but now it doesn't. I have tried various types of soft foods and he is interested in them at first then walks away. Yesterday I got some free freeze dried food and he seems to like that. Our dog is 11, a black lab that was rescued andcame with Lyme disease and pancreatic insufficiency. Lyme is controlled and pancreatic enzymes are given with his food. so far we have tried giving just soft canned food which he no longer wants, we have given him roasted chicken that he kinda likes, food that is like oatmeal when rehydrated. but he will still eat a cookie or jerky strip. Help if you can. thanks
