It all started on 4/14/16 which is when we finally took him to vet. He had bee grazing on grass every morning and vomiting for about 3 weeks but my husband insisted that dogs eat grass because their stomach want them to vomit. ( I disagreed and finally went to vet). 2. No blood work as far as I know but something cslled IH Stat 17 test and x-Ray. Had what he thought was grass showing on x-Ray.

My dog got sick, blood work revealed liver problems. The

My dog got sick, blood work revealed liver problems. The liver enzymes were 1200 & 1400. She then had an ultra-sound that revealed, mottling & nodules that were age appropriate. She was treated with amoxicillin & metronidazole + Pepcid. She got betterfor two weeks. I started her back on the antibiotics & she is getting worse. Looking up the metronidazole it is contraindicated in dogs with liver disease. She is very week, lethargic & anorexic. Following the Ultrasound there are still no answers as to whatis wrong with her & they want to do a liver biopsy. Will that just rule out cancer? I want to treat her or manage her illness for as long as possible. Is this antibiotic causing more problems? What will a liver biopsy do? Will I know what is wrong with herif she has one? If it's cancer I'm not ready to subject her to chemotherapy. What should I do? This dog is my best friend & I don't want to lose her

I took my 11 year old boxer in to the vet 2 days ago because of vomiting. The tests showed she had pancraetitis. She was put on fluids for two days at the vet's office and they also administered Cerenia and Metronidazole. When I got her from the office she had a noticeable eye issue. The left eye was not open as wide as the right, the third eyelid was partially covering the eye, and the border around the brown part of the eye was not sharp, like the right. Her energy level seems to be at abvout 50%. The doctor told me this could be due to a thyroid condition or a reaction to the Metronidazole. The pressure was good in the eye and everything looked good when he checked for other problems with the eye. It seemed kind of strange to me that her eye was fine before the Metronidazole, but suddenly different afterwards. She has not vomited for the past 24 hours and her stool is only a little soft, and back to normal form. Will she have a relapse if I take her off the Metronidazole? Does the Cerenia have side effects? I'm worried about the eye since it looks sluggish and I've read there can be serious side effects to Metronidazole in older dogs.

puppy: he tried to get back up to walk he looked..collapse

Last night my puppy looked like he lost strength in one side of his body and he fell and when he tried to get back up to walk he looked like he was going to collapse, his one side wouldn't support him and then a minute later he was fine and runniing around like normal. Will a vet have to see that happen or can they run tests to see if something is wrong?
