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..

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!

Our 14 year old australian shephard was just diagnosed with

Our 14 year old australian shephard was just diagnosed with Lyme last week. We originally took her to the vet due to vomiting & lethargy. X-rays of her lungs/heart & belly did not show any blockages/masses. She's been on medication for a week now (doxycycline for lyme & medication for issues with her esophagus), have changed her diet to boiled chicken & rice (doesn't like the rice) and she still continues to have gurgling, drooling and sometimes clear regurgitation.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: She is eating & still shows signs of wanting to eat. She doesn't like to lay with her head down as it appears it is uncomfortable for her.

I am representing a little shelter for critically ill

Hi,I am representing a little shelter for critically ill animals (dogs and cats). My question today is about one of our dogs, Nochka.We have already consulted with local vet on her treatment, but would like to hear the second opinion. Nochka is about 8 years old, she has chronic bronchi issues and heart issues. In regards ***** ***** heart issues, she tested positive for dirofilaria in heart/blood + she has high blood pressure. She was prescribed with micardis (for life), doxycycline (for 3-4 weeks), furosemide (7-10 days every month), verospiron (7-10 days per month) and Milbemax (every month for life). My question is: is treatment with Milbemax safe enough and would not cause clots while killing helmints in her heart /blood?Thank you beforehand,Maria & Kind House
