My 9 yr old female border collie, Diamond, has had anal

My 9 yr old female border collie, Diamond, has had anal gland issues for over 4 years. She has had to have sutures placed in one to repair a rupture two years ago. The repair did not hold and she now has issues every few weeks. We've tried more dietary fiber (green beans), sits baths and monthly expression by our vet. We are now considering surgery to remove the right gland that was ruptured. There seems to be a collection of puss within this gland and the old sutures that complicate the condition. What other options do we have? What are the pros and cons of removal?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Diamond?Customer: She doesn't have any other known conditions, though she hasn't had a blood work up as yet. As with most borders, she is very athletic and an Alpha female. She doesn't tolerate other companions well. She spends most of her days with our two male dogs, another BC and a Sheepdog. She is a "ball dog". Hyper is one way to describe her.

I was researching why my boy, 100lb half Newfoundland and

Hi! I was researching why my boy, 100lb half Newfoundland and half Queensland Heeler may be throwing up. He eats a mix of good kibble and cooked, diced, chicken. I give him a few scraps of what I eat but very little. He had vomiting episodes a few weeks ago and I took him into my vet. Full blood tests and he's really healthy. I came home to his entire breakfast on the floor and 5 other piles of bile. While cleaning, he vomited 3 more times. The last little bit had a bit of reddish gel like pieces in it, nothing man made and I can't tell if it's blood.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?Customer: No! Just his regular breakfast. Aside from a bit of tennis ball fuzz, he can't digest any of his toys.JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Jameson, 2yoJA: How old is Jameson?Customer: Two yearsJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Jameson?Customer: Naw, completely healthy otherwise

I took my 8 pound poodle who is 8 yrs old to the Vet today

I took my 8 pound poodle who is 8 yrs old to the Vet today for vomiting. She has been vomiting once a day for a week. Stools seem ok. She still acted fine other than vomiting. The vet treated her with Famotidine 20mg 1/4 tablet once a day. And Cerenia tab 16 mg 1/2 tab a day. I gave them to her tonight about 3 hrs ago and now she is trembling and acting weird. I let her outside and she went to the grass but not sure what she did i.e. eat grass, poop, or vomit. She is licking her mouth and trying to tell me something. She acts like she wants to vomit. I think something is wrong! kathy

Two problems. She keeps eating grass. I am feeding her

Two problems. She keeps eating grass. I am feeding her veterinarian digestive formula canned food, and she just finished an antibiotic a few days ago. I hear her stomach grumbling, and I don't know what to feed her. Second - she bites her paws raw, despite oatmeal baths and hot spot treatments. Again, don't know what to do for her.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?Customer: She is a 6-year old chihuahua/ maltese mix that I rescued on July 1.JA: OK. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the chihuahua's name?Customer: Opps, July 30, not July 1. Her name is Snowflake (she is all white).JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Snowflake?Customer: She came from an abuse situation where she lived in her own filth without release for who knows how long. That's why I originally suspected sensitive paws. I bought a salve online that is meant to soothe, but she sometimes bites when I apply it. Between not eating and scratching so vehemently, I am getting seriously worried about her.

My dog has had a bout of diorhea on and off for a week. A vet checked her up after a day finding that she was fine. The problem has persisted. Should I just ride it out or return again?
