Hi Pearl, My dog has become lethargic, not jumping onto bed or sofa, moves slowly. She is 8 years old, has no apatite, but did drink water. She had a meal this morning. I was going to give her Benadril to see if this would help her. At times she shivers.Do you have any advice for me?Thanks,WouterJA: I'm sorry to hear that.

My vet prescribed four tabs of terbinafine 250mg each twice a day, so 1000 mg every 12 hours. This concerns me. Is this amount tolerable in an 11 year old dog that weighs 70 pounds?

To our favorite Vet!! I have one question from Effie and one

Hello, hello, hello to our favorite Vet!!I have one question from Effie and one from Ivan. :DEffie is fighting me with the glucosamine chewables. Is there a PILL or something I can hide better in the cream cheese. Sometimes she tastes it and won't bother with it all day. I need something smaller.For Ivan - his nose is healing slowly from his rubbing it raw against the couch. It is peeling a little, though . . . is that like a scab for humans?? I went back to giving him Zyrtec and he seems to have stopped with the rubbing.Thank you ever so much.

About a year ago his nose started peeling, I took him to the vet and they said he may be allergic to the sun. After many sunscreen and awning days he still hasn't recovered. He has seemed depressed and will eat but reluctantly and only so our other dogs don't get his food. I filed his nails earlier and noticed the bottom of them are brittle? What's going on? BTW he is a 6 yr old German shepherd/ border collie mix. Thanks a bunch.

I was pouring gasoline from a jug to a pail. My puppy put her nose near the gasoline. I am not positive if she got gas in her mouth or on her skin. She vaguely smells of gasoline, but it is difficult to tell as I had gas on my hands also. Is there anything I need to do immediately or what do I need to watch for?

My Standard Poodle is taking Vanectyl for unspecified

My Standard Poodle is taking Vanectyl for unspecified allergies. It stops his runny nose and itchiness, but gives him diarrhea. Is there a different drug that does not have that side effect?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the standard poodle's name and age?Customer: Marcel, two and a halfJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Marcel?Customer: Nobody seems to be able to find out the cause of his runny nose, and this time he was itchy as well. It was after a bath, so it might be the shampoo. It has happened before without bathing being involved, however.
