I have a 3-year old male boxer who a neighbor found. He was
I have a 3-year old male boxer who a neighbor found. He was malnourished and had extreme anxiety - PTSD - it is obvious he had been abused in some way. He is a very loving, gentle dog, but has a lot of anxiety and he has redirected/displaced aggression, and usually takes it out on my large pit bull, who strangely doesn't react much to it. I can tell when it is going to happen and can usually calm him down and redirect him. But we recently had an incident where the boxer took it out on my daughter, which was my fear would happen some day. I have tried to deal with it, but obviously it is out of my league. Is this a behavioral problem that can be treated successfully? I have tried to get him placed in a boxer rescue, but they won't take him since he has this aggression problem.

My dog is 7 years old. I do obedience training with him and go to obedience trials. During a trial he shuts down and does not do most of the exercises required. There is a lot of noise and dogs in the area. What dosage of gelsemium sempervirens 30 should I give him in order to calm him so that he can perform?

I have a 4 or 5 month old chocolate male pit he is a rescue
I have a 4 or 5 month old chocolate male pit he is a rescue from off the street. when I got him he had a bad rash under his foreleg and spots on his forehead and covering most of his inside back legs both sides. a little down the sides. He had also been covered in fleas which the person I got him form had dowsed him pretty good with flea powder before he came here. I had some k 9 advantan-x which I used the second we got home on that Friday. He has had no further issues with the fleas however the rash remained. So on Monday I took him to the vet. He was diagnosed with a bacterial, fungal rash which he was treated with steroid shot and antibiotic, along with a antibiotic and anti-fungal shampoo. I was also given 3 days worth of antibiotic to give orally. This did seem to help but when I stopped the antibiotic orally it came back with a vengeance. So I talked to the vet he said I could try the giving penicillin I have on hand for 3 days to try to cure it up and keep giving the medicated baths twice a week. Well I gave this too him for 5 days and still no change it has been 2 days since I stopped the oral antibiotics and the rash seems to be getting worse and driving him nuts when the itching starts. I want to know if topical spray lamisil, and monostat along with triple antibiotic will do more harm than good since the antibiotic does not seem to help. Or is there something else I can try to arrest this vicious bacterial fungus?
My dachshund is six months old. Her stool has been mixed over
My dachshund is six months old. Her stool has been mixed over the past three days. Yesterday she made a perfect chocolate ice cream cone. Today and Monday she had mucus and a little bit of red (maybe blood). I visited my Vet yesterday for my dogs Lyme Disease vaccination and told them the situation. They said to watch her. They mentioned colitis. She's dragging her bottom today, loose stool with mucus, and she just threw up. It was mostly water, a few grass strands and a little food (dry kibble). Your suggestions are appreciated. We have obedience training class tonight. Bad idea???
I got a rescue dog that is a Terrier mix about 25-30 poundsView more dog veterinary questions
I got a rescue dog that is a Terrier mix about 25-30 pounds (looks like a Norfolk Terrier in the face/ears) that was about 3 years old and have had her for a little over a year. She came with some trust issues, but is now great while in our house.However, every time I take her on a walk, she will act aggressive towards bicycles, golf carts, and joggers and it seems obedience training will not stick. She recently jumped up on a boy while on a leash and tried to grab his athletic shirts without any warning. The kid was not acting aggressive or anything, just wanting to pet my dog.I'm afraid that one day, even while on a leash, she may end up biting a child and there will be a lawsuit, not to mention my dog will have to be put down. She's not a smart dog, but is incredibly laid back and great with most people and other dogs, but completely randomly gets aggressive towards certain individuals who aren't even posing a threat.Questions:1. Is my dog beyond rehab at 4-5 years old, meaning we may have to not have her in the family (there are grandkids and I fear they may get bitten in the future based on the random aggressiveness with no warning bark).2. When I see the vet next, is there a test to ask for to see if the dog has some psychological issues that we can medicate?3. Some other recommendation?Thank you
