My dog may have consumed ibuprofen. The bottle must have
Hi, my dog may have consumed ibuprofen. The bottle must have fallen out of my purse and when I got home it was chewed and the pills were on the floor. I'm not sure if any was consumed, but it's possible. He hasn't acted any different and seems fine. Should I still call the vet? It would have been about 6 hours since he would have potentially consumed itJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. How old is the?Customer: He's about a year. Just a month under and he probably weighs 20-25 lbsJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the?Customer: I don't think so!

We just adopted a 17 month old french bulldog on Monday and
we just adopted a 17 month old french bulldog on Monday and he was neutered the same day. The past couple of days he was licking his paws a lot and throwing up a little water. This morning we took him into a urgent care to try and help him with his itchiness. His scrotum was swollen a little and red. The vet gave him a shot to control his itchiness and a shot for acid for his stomach. We were suppose to continue his pain meds and antibiotic pills when we got home. He isn't itchy anymore, but is lethargic and is throwing up a lot more. He hasn't eaten since we got home and I can't get him to take his pills. I'm hoping he can sleep it off and see how he feels in the morning, but not sure what to do if he keeps throwing up? He's drinking water and then throwing it up. When he inhales he kind of shakes a little.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the bulldog?Customer: I can tell you all the medicine if he wants to know

Our AmStaff x (rescue) is 20 months old and had surgery in
Our AmStaff x (rescue) is 20 months old and had surgery in November to remove a growth on his lip as he'd made it bleed when chewing on one of his toys. The vet initially believed it was nothing to worry about. Now on the same site a cluster of six wart looking growths have appeared and seem to multiply every few days. We're reluctant to take him back for surgery as it's not something we can afford right now and the recovery period was traumatic. Is there anything I can do either naturopathicly or homeopathicly?
My 38lb 9yr old female heathy Labradoodle has a cyst on her
My 38lb 9yr old female heathy Labradoodle has a cyst on her back that was aspirated a year or so ago by our vet and determined to be benign and just a cyst. Yesterday, she began fussing with it and we noticed it was oozing some fluid. So we were washing her to clean the area up and found she had opened a wound about the size of a dime, and we could see some had white masses inside that came out when we sprayed water on it. The largest was the size of an English pea. She didn't seem to be bothered by us fussing with it. Most of the white solid mass came out but we can see more in the wound which is about 1/4 inch deep. We put peroxide on it and it doesn't seem to be bleeding. We also put a cone on her that we had from another skin issue. We are planning to see the vet tomorrow, but should we apply anything like neosporin or an antiseptic until the visit?
My terrier is having hiccup / feed type symptoms all night
My terrier is having hiccup / feed type symptoms all night with head bob that is pretty visible. I suspect he collected a small amount of power amdro type solution on his paws yesterday and I think he has possibly licked his paws and ingested it. Is there something I can give him to alleviate his symptoms?
