I have an eleven year old yorkiepoo around 15 lbs. She is larger and a little plump. She started having these spells, where her legs start shaking, her head twitches, she seems a little unaware, and looks like she might fall over. She is also drinking alot of water. These started about a month ago, and seem to be increasing in the hot weather. She also seems to do alot of panting.

Just checking to see if I can figure out what is going on

Just checking to see if I can figure out what is going on with my shih tzu. she was diagnosed with a heart murmer at 13 and is now 15 and a half. She is eating fine, walking, but has a gagging cough. Her last vet appointment was July 1 and nothing was noted at that time by the vet. she did stress herself out at the appointment to the point of passing out. I inherited her when my mom died and am just trying to do the right thing.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: No. She is licking her front right paw.JA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this.

Our 8.5-year-old male Boxer developed a hack (not a cough)

Our 8.5-year-old male Boxer developed a hack (not a cough) 12 days ago. We immediately took him to the vet and he received a prescription for Amoxicillian. The hack did not go away but he completed the bottle of pills--at that time he also developed a leaky bladder. So, back to the vet we went; this time we were given Baytril. The hack and bladder leaks have not stopped and this is his 2nd day on the Baytril. His lab work that was done 2 days ago, showed his RBC, HCT & PLT were low; his MCHC, RETIC and NEU were high; all other levels were normal. We're concerned he has not been accurately diagnosed. He has no other symptoms and has always been very healthy.
