Hi! I have recently purchased a home with a pool. Before then, my 5 year old wheaten had never been near water.. now I cannot keep him out! He loves to jump in and play and my 16 year old is in the pool everyday. Is it safe to let Tucker swim everyday? He certainly does love it, but I want to make sure it's safe.Thank you for your time

My 12 year old dog had a sudden loss of most of her hearing

My 12 year old dog had a sudden loss of most of her hearing about 2 months ago. Vet, new vet, examined ears and said she looks fine, that's it's just aging. Since she has long floppy ears, she has had recurrent ear infections throughout her life. Is there any point in trying antibiotics?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. What is the dog's name?Customer: Mojo. She's in good healthalthough last year she had surgeries to remove squamous cell carcinoma on her tongue. Vets even mistake her demeanor and bloodwork for that of a younger dog. She may be a llapsa poo.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Mojo?Customer: Bad cataracts. She's outside a lot. She eats quality kibble. She's on thyroid meds , plus Deramaxx to discourage cancer regrowth.
