My name is ***** ***** Olsen: Our, 11 year old wheaton terrier

My name is ***** ***** Olsen: Our, 11 year old wheaton terrier mix (Buster) has been on rimadyl for a few months 37.5mg per day. Has had two nosebleeds. Didn't catch it the first time as just saw blood on his blanket but just now brought him inside and red blood dripping from his nose. My son, 16, his best friend, is freaking out. Should I take him to ER vet or can wait until morning. I am suspecting it is due to the Rimadyl. He has been pretty active for an old "guy" until the last few days. What do you think?JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: Our dogs nose is bleeding red, fresh blood. I come from a medical family so I know to check out the obvious-no flesh wounds, no evidence of a fight with other animals, checked his teeth. Has not had any loose stools or anything different to mention. Has been a bit sneezy though until now-sneezing bloodJA: OK got it.

I rescue and we work with a small pound in TN. They have a

I Foster for a rescue and we work with a small pound in TN. They have a 4-5 month old puppy, lab mix. Had nosebleeds, heavy. Sounds like he's snoring. He was on antibiotics, seemed to work, nosebleeds stopped. Found ulcers under tongue, cauterized them, won't play, can't eat solid food, goes out to pee/poop andimmediately comes back in to sleep. Sleeps all day long. She doesn't know what to do. Thinks they need to scope the throat but that's about $1500. She thinks he's maybe 10-15lbs, and he's like 5 months old. Can see hip bones. Any ideasOn what could be causing theMouth sores?

My miniature schnauzer was bred on July 6th. She was X-rayed

Hello. My miniature schnauzer was bred on July 6th. She was X-rayed by her Vet, and is carrying 4 puppies. The Vet suspects that the date of the breeding is off by a few days, because I brought her in to be X rayed, on what I thought was day 45, he couldnot see complete skeletons, but when we Xrayed the following week they were all visible. My question is: She has been digging in her whelping box and panting since about 7 am this morning. She has had water, but refuses food. Several small loose bowel movementsfor the last couple of days, as well as some vomiting of bile. I haven't seen a mucus plug passed as of yet, and she does not seem distressed other than the panting and restlessness. This is stage 1 of labor correct? How long does this go on before I shouldbe concerned? I have done a lot on online research about the whelping process, I'm ready with all the supplies, I just need the labor to start!

I have a 10 year old female pitbull. about 6 months ago her

I have a 10 year old female pitbull. about 6 months ago her left side of her head started to sink in I immediately went to the vets. The vet is 99.5% sure it is a brain tumor but without an MRI he cannot be 100%. the MRI is $3,000 which I do not have. a few months ago the bottom part of her face started to sink in on the same side the left so only the cheek bone was protruding out. she's always been active happy dog like nothing was wrong. about a month ago she started to have anxiety attacks she would be normal throughout the day but one night Time came she would pant uncontrollably and shake uncontrollably along with having to be on top of me or by my side following me around. thus keeping me up for 8 to 10 hours straight at night. I took her to the vet again and they prescribed her phenobarbital 60mg twice a day. which worked for the first two weeks she slept throughout the night she became out of it which I knew she would because of the medication she wasn't happy dog anymore she was tired always. she seem to be getting used to the medication and becoming more alert which coincidentally resulted back into having panic attacks in the middle of the night. I took her back to the vet and the vet recommended to up the dose three times a day and to go see specialist. the vet keeps talking to me about quality of life and the I need to think about it but then tells me that she's not in pain which is hard for me. she was once a happy dog the medication made her a zombie but then the attcks at night we're keeping me up all night so I'm confused. Today I came home from the grocery store and she had a bloody nose I'm not for sure if it's because of the medication or if it's because of the tumor. help?!

My dog's PCV was at 38% and her platelet was at 51,000 when

My dog's PCV was at 38% and her platelet was at 51,000 when she was admitted for a nosebleed that could not be controlled. She has IMHA and today the hospital released her back to us and her PCV was at 30% but her platelet somehow jumped all the way up to 222,000. Does that make any sense? I don't understand how over night that could possibly happen.
