I have a Great Pyrenees with excessive barking disorder, she barks inside the house as well as being a nuisance to neighbors. I have had two visit by the local police. She is about 90 lbs and takes 100 mg of Trazodone twice a day and 40 mg of Prozac once a day. She has been on these meds for two weeks. She's a real problem. These is my third Pyrenees and have never experienced barking like this one. I'm lost!

In recent days we've noticed 2 strange-looking bumps on the

In recent days we've noticed 2 strange-looking bumps on the under chin of our 1 year old male doberman puppy. They are without hair and kind of look something like 2 almonds that are lying side by side next to each other. Because of the rather symmetrical configuration of the bumps we're not sure if this is normal anatomy of his chin but still, they don't look right. Should we be concerned? I understand that young adult dogs can get acne but the size (large), number (only 2) and symmetrical appearance of the bumps is confusing. Thanks very much for your help.

My dog is a male múltiplo. He is 2 years old and recently

My dog is a male múltiplo. He is 2 years old and recently started carrying/possessing a toy and whining. I am concerned whether there is something wrong with him. If we take the toy away, he gets anxious and starts looking for it like crazy and wimpers while doing so. This is very odd behavior for him because he is not normally attached to toysJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: Dog has not been fixed

I think my 10 year old pitbull has a fungal infection on his

I think my 10 year old pitbull has a fungal infection on his 2 back paws. Everything I find online to treat it says I need to bath his paws however he is very alert and gets aggressive whenever I try to treat him for anything (he runs away if I spread his fur to simply look for fleas). I was wondering if there was some kind of spray I can make to help him instead of soaking or anything else that will clear this upThank you

My question is about my chiweenie. I know she has anxiety

Hello, my question is about my chiweenie. I know she has anxiety issues and that occurs typically: in the car, around new people, etc. but my concern is I will be fast asleep and wake up in the middle of the night or early morning and she'll be shivering so severely it shakes my whole bed. I'll take her outside to see if that's the problem, but we come back and she's still doing it. She has food and water disposable to her. So I really just don't understand why she does this. Please help.

My 95 pound male dog urine burns out the grass horribly., I was giving Lawn Guard bits from Doctors Foster & Smith that helped some. I was told that Pet Rocks work and I've been using that in his water and that has not helped at all. I stopped using the Lawn Guards since wanted to see if Pet Rocks would work.What can I give him so his urine stops killing my grass.

Pup is hacking and wheezing; sounds congested.

I have a 16 week old Berner pup and he is hacking and wheezing. Sometimes as he exhales, he sounds congested. He has slight drainage from both eyes. He tends to snort or wheeze most when he's playing or excited. Sometimes, he'll snore at night. We've had him for a month now. He's had all his shots. We kept him away from serious dog interactions until he'd had them all. He's had one on one obedience training, but not with lots of dogs. He's encountered a couple dogs while on walks, but we were careful to keep him as isolated as possible. He was coughing and wheezing a big when he first arrived, but it didn't seem likely that kennel cough would last this long. What would be your suggestion? He's eating and drinking. He plays and in all other ways seems perfectly normal.

Me and my wife adopted a 2-3 year old German Shepherd Dog

Hello, my name is***** and my wife adopted a 2-3 year old German Shepherd Dog from our local Animal Rescue League. They said the dog had been to obedience training and was given up by the original owner because they did not have time for it. The dog was adopted by a young couple then brought back the next day because it attacked (knocked over is the word the vet used) there large breed dog. They didn't say what kind of dog the young couple had they said they just let the GSD loose in the back yard and it immediately knocked over there dog so they returned it. We adopted the dog on 7-11. My wife was super excited. We took the GSD to petsmart got him all the necessities had zero problems around other dogs or people, brought the dog home and played with him, groomed him, fed him, and put him in his crate and went to sleep. The next morning my wife got up early to take him for a run, which went fine, she did say he drug her a lot. Then she proceeded to play a little fetch and go over simple commands Sit-Stay-Down. After this she started taking selfies with the dog while she was sitting on the ground. The dog was fine until the last 4 photos in sequence her staring face to face eye to eye with the dog. Same photo again but dogs eyes are a lot more alert (which she did not notice), next photo her head next to his him looking away from her, next photo the GSD biting her on head, next photo GSD biting her on head. After that the dog pinned her down and she was just guarding herself as she said the dog was attacking her and she screamed at that point I ran outside the dog immediately hopped off of her and came over to me wagging his tail with a fine temperament. My wife is deathly afraid that the dog has a problem and that she will no longer to be able to master the dog. She is afraid that since the dog exerted his dominance over her that the dog will always be dominant over her. Any advice or help you can give that I can show her? We have had zero incidents since then but she has refused to be around the dog.
