I need another opinionI want a second opinion.I have a 11 yrs old golden retriever. He has started having nosebleeds out of his left nostril and he has laboured breathing that starts and stops in intervals. His right eye has swelled up and watery and now his left eye is bloodshot as well. His flatulance is really intense smelling. He is still eating and drinking water and goes for walks and is happy. But he seems a littl depressed and moans and sighs. What could he have. I'm on a tight budget so extensive testing is not an option what should I doJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: He has a injury on his right knee and is limpingJA: What is the dog's name?Customer: BuddyJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Buddy?Customer: His eyes look cloudy with a bluish haze. I had bloodwork done and the vet recommend a coagulation panel and further work up- She is suspicious of a tumour in the abdomen causing vasculitis and thinks he needs further work ASAP to check that he is not becoming anemic or his coagulation parameters. I've already spent $280 on this one test and we still don't have any real answer. She thinks it may also be his liverJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

I have a 7 month old min pin, female about 5 lbs. she ate a piece of scotch brand 3M transparent tape about an inch by 1/4. IM trying to see if the glue is toxic but scotch brand products are closed today and don't seem to have an emergency number. As a Paramedic I have had several kids eat all sorts of tape, usually with zero results, but puppies are a bit different. Sam Politano(###) ###-####JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what the puppy ate?Customer: ok so this is automated? That answered way to fast to be real time. She ate tape.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the puppy?Customer: no. otherwise perfect health.

To you. I have a min pin aproximate age is 15 yrs old. I, we

Hello, and good day to you. I have a min pin aproximate age is 15 yrs old. I, we live in Peoria, As. In may-jun of 2005 this min pin was found abandoned, and estimated at 4yrs old. I took him in and have had a great relationship with him for 11 yrs. He's been great companion and we both have enjoyed each other. At 15yrs old, he is now showing his age. He's a little over weight, has week kidneys and doesn't quite make it outside too much any more unless I carry him. I'm cleaning up after him at least 3 or 4 times aday. I'm sure he has arthritis, but I can't tell if he's in any pains. I have given him low dose baby aspirin in the past when he was in pain or not feeling good. How should I care for him now, and what kind of meds should I give him and how much. He may make it Thur the summer, but I don't expect him to make it to the end of the year. I would like to know how to keep him comfortable until he is no more. His name is ***** ***** advise....... Rick... Thank you for your time....
