My house was just treated for Termites by Terminex. They said to wait two hours before letting the dogs out in the yard. My dog walked over a treated crack. My husband got really worried that being exposed by walking over the treated area might make the dog sick or even poison him. He walked over the treated crack at about one hour versus two hours. I'm totally worried now. I wiped him down, nose, ears, paws, fur....do you think it's a bad issue?

He continues to have this coughing/gagging issue. And I'm worried half to death, I've taken him to the vet several times and everything is coming back normal. The only thing different is that we've changed his food about 2 months ago. And he's pawing at his mouth occasionally. Tonight has been the worst in terms of him coughing.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?Customer: Thank you. He's a 14 year old Westie and the vet is amazed with what good shape he is in except for this recent problem.JA: Maybe I'm confused.

Capsules twice per day.Is that too much?Can it cause her to get weak or her bladder be out of control.She also has frequent diarrhea.She has been taking it for about a month and is supposed to take it another month.Her nose is still as bad as ever.Dry cracking open and sluffing off in chunks.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mya?Customer: Generally she has been in good health.She was treated for a stomach virus that had caused severe diarrhea as she started on the doxycycline.I can't recall that antibiotic.She was put on a canned food for digestive health.It has helped and she also has to take vitamin e ,fish oil,and a probiotic along with the doxycycline.She still has a very good appetite and drinks a lot.She has always been a heavy water drinker.She seems to be weak when walking or trying to climb on the couch.She sometimes falls back or just gives up.

My 4 month old bulldog puppy has a lot of congestion, he's

my 4 month old bulldog puppy has a lot of congestion, he's had it for about a month and it's not any better. It's like he cant sleep well laying flat and is very uncomfortable. He has a runny nose, clear. He also has cherry eye, which I know doesn't play into this but the ooze that comes from his eye is a light green. He coughs a lot and it sounds like a upper respiratory infection... Before I make his vet appointment I wanted to check online and see who else has dealt with this and there suggestions of what it may be, ex.. nose problems in bulldogs or just a cold? Can you please give me suggestions to help my bully.

I used a citronella bark collar on my dog yesterday. I

Hello. I used a citronella bark collar on my dog yesterday. I returned it because it was malfunctioning and going off without him barking. My question is, how long does the unpleasant smell linger in the dog's nose? I read that it masks his sense of smell for quite some time. My fear is that he will have that smell in his nose forever. Is there something physiological about a dog's nose that would make it impossible for the smell to stay in there forever?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Beau. 5 years old. Hound dogJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Beau?Customer: no
