I adopted an 8 year old male poodle (15 pounds) on 12/17/16.

Hello Pearl. I adopted an 8 year old male poodle (15 pounds) on 12/17/16. Peanut is originally from South Carolina. Peanut has had diarrhea since day one when I adopted him. His stool did get harder for a few days during these past 4 weeks. I was on vacation for the past 7 days and my dog sitter reported that Peanut has had diarrhea and is pooping all over the house 5-6 times daily. I picked up Peanut last night and yes, he has pooped 6 times in less than 24 hours (5 of those times in the house). The stool is becoming more and more liquidy and I have noticed some blood in it. Peanut is also drinking water a lot. Since 12/17/16, he eats constantly. Peanut is very alert and active. I tried calling my vet but have not received a response (perhaps due to the Martin Luther King holiday weekend). PaulaJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about my?Customer: No.

my dog charlie has a yeast issue in one ear. I've used the products bought by at the vet. One vet wanted to put him on predisone a drug I can not use on any member of my family. He the said there was nothing he could do. I've tried some home made vineger solutions as well. Charlie weighs 211 so he is not so keen on having his ears messed with but we do clean them daily. They usually have very little debris in them but what the vet said was yeast. Isn't there medication to tackle yeast with out giving a dog steroids.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. How old is charlie?Customer: Six next monthJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about charlie?Customer: Charlie had a skin problem last spring. I was told it was a severe problem here in the area. It required medicated shampoo and two weeks of antibiotics. He has had a cyst removed from the lower lid of his eye and in the fall and spring appears to have allergys just like his owners.

My 6 month old cavalier has a problem with his anal glands.

My 6 month old cavalier King Charles has a problem with his anal glands. My vet had drained them and gave him an injection. I now have to give him half a 250mg oxycare tablet twice a day. I read than oxycare should not be given to young animals. My other cabbie has a similar problem with the same treatment, he is 12 months old. They weigh 8kg and 6kg respectively. First of all is the dosage right and should I by giving the younger one the pills at all? Also what should I do to prevent the problem happening again. I am an inexperienced owner, and feel very guilty that I did not notice a problem for a while.
