My pit has what looks like bug bites all over s body. he is

My pit bull has what looks like bug bites all over his body. he is active outside our Kentucky home which is located in the Daniel Boone National forest. Could he have some sort of poison ivy or oak? We also have a bad deer fly problem. He is an inside dog but we take him out to exercise a lot though out the day. He was also bitten by a copperhead snake several weeks ago on the nose. His activity level has dramatically decreased during the healing process and not returned. What is safe to put on the bites? or rash? He wears a Seresto flea and tick collar. He weights 85lbs.

Nekovet: Hope you are well. I need a little more help. I

For Dr. B/nekovet:Hope you are well. I need a little more help.I feel certain that Dolly wasn't septic and didn't aspirate. ButI can't drop the feeling that Dolly had an anaphylactic reaction to meds. The ER Vet Owner looked at the record and said that is what it was and it takes 2-4 hours. The ER Vet who treated her said she didn't know what it was and it just kept getting worse which fits allergic reaction, but they didn't give her epinephrine. Anaphylaxis fit the time frame for the Baytril/Rimadyl tabs - 5 PM. The radiologist report indicated an anaphylactoid event. Could that be meds? He did not mention them. I know you didn't think it was anaphylaxis. How did you rule that out? I know there were several reasons you ruled it out and something in the X-rays that pointed you away from allergic reaction, but I don't remember exactly what. I don't know what the radiologist saw. Would cancer look like ARDS on X-ray? She went so fast. Would cancer progress to death that quickly? I know meds kill people and animals. If it were an anaphylactic/toid event, would there be any visible or audible symptoms other than SOB or would it be just breathing difficulty? I read one vet article that said it usually begins in respiratory for people but circulatory and GI in animals and respiratory secondarily, but also could be localized. So that is confusing to me.I guess it doesn't matter to anyone but me. But I wish I could find peace with what did or didn't kill her.Thanks in advance for your help. I am trying to work on the book, but it is slow.

Salkin: You haven't heard from me in a while. That means

Hi Dr Salkin: You haven't heard from me in a while. That means all is well. My 8 week old pups are ready to go home. I have Giardia snap tests and they are and have been negative. Their stools are a little on the soft side. One of the pups is going to Long Island New York via Ferry. So I am driving the pup about 1/2 hour to the ferry. The lady has an 1 hour 15 min ferry ride to Long Island and 1 hour to get home with the little one. Can I give the pup and his 2 litter mates pepto?

My dog was just bitten by another dog. Both dogs healthy. My

my dog was just bitten by another dog. Both dogs healthy. My dog, I think, snapped at our foster who naturally reacted. My dog now has a couple of wounds in one ear and a puncture wound in her neck. It is not gushing blood (I have bandaged it somewhat) and she seems calm. Should I go to an emergency vet now or does it sound ok to wait until morning??

I have had two dogs come down with parvo - I am in /rescue

I have had two dogs come down with parvo - I am in foster/rescue and a parvo pup came in. The two dogs are out of the vet hospital and recovering nicely. The problem is I have run out of isolation areas. Is it a substantial risk to let the two dogs be in quarantine together for the 2-3 weeks they continue to shed the virus?

We 7-8 yr. old rescue Treeing Walker Coon Hound. She got kennel cough from another dog we brought home to foster. The vet gave us Keflex for her. She is hacking continuously. I have given her honey and lemon, but it hasn't helped. Is there anything I can do to alleviate the awful dry hacking and make her more comfortable?Thank you,Penelope
