Hi Pearl,JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?Customer: We have 2 young lab puppies and one of the little guys just gave himself a shock from the christmas tree lights, it looks like he pulled the wire out of the connection. He gave a little yelp when it happened and ran away from the tree, but he seems to be back to himself now, actually after a few seconds he seems ed to be fine I checked his mouth and there is no burns or black marks, and there is also no missing or broken bulbs.JA: Burns are certainly painful. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the dog's name?Customer: CooperJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Cooper?Customer: He 8 weeks old lab puppy, very happy bouncy little guy :)

My 6 year old golden doodle (53 lbs) starting not feeling

Hi there. My 6 year old golden doodle (53 lbs) starting not feeling well last Friday. Lethargic, not eating or drinking. Took him to vet sat morning. He had a 104 fever and got subs 300cc fluid, antibiotic and vit b12 shot. Had blood drawn and UA done. All ok except for elevated WBC. No frank infection can be seen, i.e.: no painful joints, open sores, abcess etc. Took him back Sunday after results of workup for another antibiotic shot and got Rex for amoxicillin....he has had 3 doses orally thus far. Still no better this am. Other than respirations seem fast, no other frank distress. No runny nose or stool. He has still not been drinking but will take an occasional treat by hand. Getting worried..... not sure if another trip to vet is in store or if antibiotics need a bit more time to work...... getting worried.....

Boo seems to have an upset tummy. Almost like if she would

Boo seems to have an upset tummy. Almost like if she would vomit, she'd feel better. Not much for her to get into in the way of poison as that she's mostly an inside dog. However we do live in the country and it seems that she might be eating rabbit dung. Any suggestions?

My 88 lb. Dog ingested what we thought was 2 squeakers. He

My 88 lb. Dog ingested what we thought was 2 squeakers. He ate his dinner this evening and has had at least 2 bowel movements today (no squeakers that I know of). Shortly after he ate his dinner, he clearly wasn't feeling well. He vomited multiple times. Among those I found 2 squeakers, but he still appears to not be feeling well. My question is whether he is just not feeling well from the ordeal or if there is something else I should be concerned about. He doesn't have a fever. He is drinking water but does not want to eat since he ate dinner.
