Siberian husky, 5-years-old, has been on Thyrosyn for 4
Siberian husky, 5-years-old, has been on Thyrosyn for 4 years, began epileptic seizures at 2. Vet put him on phenobarb, seizures continued every few months and side effects (lethargy, no energy) developed. Read that continued phenobarb use could also lead to other problems (liver). Tried Neuroplex, a herbal supplement from Allergicpet.com, and gradually discontinued phenobarb. Dog was seizure-free for over a year, until this May. Now seizures occur every two months, seem even more intense. Have read about other remedies, including CBD oil or hemp oil (available from Cannapets.com) and Seizureguard, among others. What do you recommend? Should these be used by themselves or with a lower dosage of phenobarb? At his peak, dog was getting four 64.8mg. tablets per day (2 in am, 2 in pm) before becoming zombie dog, so do not want that dosage again. Dog is otherwise healthy, good appetite, lots of energy, no problems show up in recent blood work-up. Food is Purina Beneful, with a scoop of Alpo to hide meds.
My 11 year old Cavalier Spaniel is losing patches of hair.
My 11 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is losing patches of hair. Her skin is scaley and some crusty spots are as large as a quarter. Medicated shampoo and oral antibiotics haven't done much for it. My vet would like to biopsy her skin but her heart murmur is much too bad to sedate her at all. Other than rolling on her back and squirming some, she don't try to scratch it. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you so much.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the Cavalier King Charles spaniel's name?Customer: Lizzy. We are not using flea tick medication and haven't for some time due to her skin conditionJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lizzy?Customer: She has a enlarged heart and some fluid in a lung. The last vet check last week, she couldn't hear the lung over the roar of the heart. She is on vetmedin, enalapril and flurosimide. And currently since the last vet appt she is on cefpodoxime Proxetil 100 mg one a day
Seeking another opinion - as the last expert suggested it
Seeking another opinion - as the last expert suggested it could be hi thyroid but when I called my vet he said he has never heard of hearing loss due to thyroid. I have a 7 year old corgi pomeranian who lost his hearing over the course of a month. I took him to the vet last Sat and he said he does not have a wax build up or an ear infection but gave me antibiotic anti-inflamatory ointment for his right ear as a precaution. I don't understand how my dog allof a sudden lost his hearing at the age of 7. What else could it be?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations your corgi can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the corgi's name?Customer: His name is*****: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jack?Customer: He is a rescue that we got from CA 2 years ago in August - so we don't know his history. He had several teeth removed when I took him to the vet for the first time after we got him. Otherwise he has been healthy and happy the last 2 + years.
I adopted a terrier mix from a shelter. I was told Gus had
I adopted a terrier mix from a shelter. I was told Gus had seizures that was why he was given up. I did take him to my vet and she changed from potassium bromide to phenobarbital. She did say that his thyroid was low but we would address this at a later time. I have recently moved to another state. I have looked into thyroid in dogs, my Gus is losing a lot of hair and is gaining weight. He has a bad tummy and does not want to eat much. I have read that if I have his thyroid tested it would not be accurate due to the phenobarbital intake. Any thoughts. Thank you.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the terrier's name and age?Customer: Gus is about 8 years old. I adopted him about 1 year ago.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gus?Customer: He was very traumatized as any dog would be. He was with his first family from a puppy to 7 years of age. He has separation anxiety very bad.
My dog is eight yrs old. He suffers from hypothyroid
My dog is eight yrs old. He suffers from hypothyroid disorder. He has all his vacinnactions recently we brought a stray puppy here me. Just for 10 mins. He got kennel cough. I took him to the vet. He was prescribed doxcylicin. He finished the prescription and he still seems to be congested with a bit a cough. He recently was given a blood panel to check his thyroid levels. I also asked the vet to listen to his chest. She said he sounded normal. He seems to be low energy. I don't know if this is due to his thyroid condition or he still is not feeling well. Also we recently took in 3 stray cats. The dogs and cats are not sleeping by in the same room. The cats are in our garage. That's a common area for both our cats and dogs. Can my dog pick up anything from these stray cats? We haven't taken the stray cats to the vet yet. We did put flea medicine on them. What so you think is should do?BestJaneen
