We were told by the new Vet near us (firs visit) our mixed

We were told by the new Vet near us (firs visit) our mixed terrier (40 pounds ) needs a bladder stone removed. She took an X ray and showed us but I'm concerned. He seemed OK... has no symptoms I know of, altho I know nothing about bladder stones in dogs, and I'm wondering how to proceed. They wanted to sit surgery the following day but I post poned it to think about it. He is such a happy little guy, eats well and enjoys life I don't want to do surgery unless it is something really necessary. What are your thoughts on this? The Vet seems like a qualified person and she has good reviews on line but that is all we know about her.

I'm not sure if any was consumed, but it's possible. He hasn't acted any different and seems fine. Should I still call the vet?

We just adopted a 17 month old french bulldog on Monday and

we just adopted a 17 month old french bulldog on Monday and he was neutered the same day. The past couple of days he was licking his paws a lot and throwing up a little water. This morning we took him into a urgent care to try and help him with his itchiness. His scrotum was swollen a little and red. The vet gave him a shot to control his itchiness and a shot for acid for his stomach. We were suppose to continue his pain meds and antibiotic pills when we got home. He isn't itchy anymore, but is lethargic and is throwing up a lot more. He hasn't eaten since we got home and I can't get him to take his pills. I'm hoping he can sleep it off and see how he feels in the morning, but not sure what to do if he keeps throwing up? He's drinking water and then throwing it up. When he inhales he kind of shakes a little.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 bulldog?Customer: I can tell you all the medicine if he wants to know

Our AmStaff x (rescue) is 20 months old and had surgery in

Our AmStaff x (rescue) is 20 months old and had surgery in November to remove a growth on his lip as he'd made it bleed when chewing on one of his toys. The vet initially believed it was nothing to worry about. Now on the same site a cluster of six wart looking growths have appeared and seem to multiply every few days. We're reluctant to take him back for surgery as it's not something we can afford right now and the recovery period was traumatic. Is there anything I can do either naturopathicly or homeopathicly?

My dog is wheezing and just not acting like himself. He has

Hi there, my dog is wheezing and just not acting like himself. He has also been sneezing, his nose is running, eyes tearing, and panting/fast breathing. He is not coughing so I'm not sure if that eliminates some things. He has somewhat lost his appetite, he's still eating but is not nearly as excited about it and is being picky about what he'll eat. I just adopted him 8 days ago so he came from a situation of being around a lot of other dogs. At first I thought it was allergies but I feel like symptoms have gotten worse so I'm not sure if it's simply just worsened allergies, a cold, or something more serious. Hearing your dog wheezing is kind of scary.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Coughing can be worrying. The Veterinarian will know what you should do. What is the dog's name?Customer: CopperJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Copper?Customer: Not that I know of
