He's a rescue, which came to my home yesterday. He is very shy and detached, probably due to all the stress he's been on the last couple of months. He threw up this afternoon, all his breakfast, almost all undigested. When I picked him up just now I noticed a scab on his underbelly, 1/2 way down his penis, and his temperature is 102.9. He's very lethargic. I live in a rural area, with nothing around for at least 60 miles.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 dog?Customer: He was neutered on 12/20, at 6 years old. It does not look like the scab could be related, but I'm not sure.

I am just perusing the web for info ; my 14 1/2 yo border

I am just perusing the web for info ; my 14 1/2 yo border collie/retriever mix has been coughing, panting and waking up at night for a year. I've asked the vet about it; told "vague dismissals". My girl is on thyroid bid, otherwise has been healthy; she gets' bi annual labs; including thyroid panel; she is also on metacam daily and has had a TPLO almost 2 years ago; recovered like a champ she is. I am concerned about the cough and now persistent panting except when at rest. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: She is otherwise active for her age; no once guesses she is 14+, what else do you need? She's eating fine; voids/bowel movements normally.

My old dog (13) just recently came off prednisone 5mg and clavaseptin 500mg for a lung infection. Our vet prescribed Gabapentin 100mg in place of his usual Metacam (22kg dose) for pain management. It is not working for his pain. Am I able to give him his daily metacam without adverse effects to help him with his pain until we can see the vet on Monday?

My dog has not been himself for the past two days. He does not sleep good at night. Wakes up all night staring at walls and at nothing and growling. He spends the day looking all anxious and pacing back and forth and in circles around the house. He is looking confused. Not eating like normally he would. Getting into corners he has never gone into and sits there. He will walk around kind of like hunched with his tail down between legs.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name?Customer: My dogs name is*****: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Chris?Customer: No.

My dog injured her hind leg trying to jump up on the bed.

My dog injured her hind leg trying to jump up on the bed. She is 10 years old. She is holding the leg up when walking and when standing when she puts it down it shakes. She is also unable to sit down. We took her to the vet and got pain meds but they are done now. She isn't crying in pain anymore but we can't figure out what is causing it. Can dogs pinch nerves?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?Customer: PepperJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Pepper?Customer: She is on thyroid meds daily, takes Flexiden for joints and gets Omega3 oil.

My 16.5 yr old border collie just threw up very yellow vomit

My 16.5 yr old border collie just threw up very yellow vomit (bile?) and his back legs gave out on him just proceeding the vomit - is that common for an old dog?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 important you think the Veterinarian should know about the Border collie?Customer: He receives metacam every other day and is on Gabapentin - otherwise no other medications - eating very well and has been energetic on all walks (morning and evening)
