I have an eleven year old yorkiepoo around 15 lbs. She is larger and a little plump. She started having these spells, where her legs start shaking, her head twitches, she seems a little unaware, and looks like she might fall over. She is also drinking alot of water. These started about a month ago, and seem to be increasing in the hot weather. She also seems to do alot of panting.
I have a 7 year old standard poodle with on and off again
I have a 7 year old standard poodle with on and off again bloody diarrhea - responsive to flagyl tho. We have had ultrasounds, X-rays, blood work and fecal exam - all normal. The vet is suggesting a colonoscopy. She had a horrid reaction to vaccine for leptosirios when she was a pup - with resulting liver issues. We do not give her vaccines on the specialists advice. Colonoscopy or not? Could anesthetic cause problems? Have to drive 3 hours to vet for scope. Thanks so much.
I have a near 5 year old maltese - 5 lbs. He started having
I have a near 5 year old maltese - 5 lbs. He started having seizures 2 weeks ago - tonic clonic and difficult to get under control. Has needed anesthesia to stop seizures. He is now on Phenobarbitol and Zonisamide. On Sat eve he got into the garbage (the phenobarb has made him a food fanatic). I cannot tell you what he ate or did not eat. Monday went to vet as he was lethargic and "wobbly" when walking. No vomiting or diarrhea. Was eating / drinking some but not normally. Stomach was abnormally enlarged. Feces was normal appearing. Monday dx was an ulcer. He was anemic based on prior labs from initial seizures - near 2 weeks prior. X-ray with nothing prominent. No signs of pancreatitis - liver and kidney functions good. Started him on carafate, pepcid and an anitnausea med that is now gone. Today I thought he was getting better as he was up walking around minimally on his own. This evening he will not walk, won't eat or drink, is lethargic, yips when picked up or moves. Eyes are glossy. Stomach is distended but not as it was on Monday. No panting. Urine appears fine, no stool today

My English Pointer had very loose stool this evening and
My English Pointer had very loose stool this evening and then threw up his breakfast (which was totally undigested). The only thing I can think of that would make him so sick is that he might have tasted a poison mushroom in the yard today. Are his symptoms compatible with that diagnosis, and if so, what can I do, if anything, to relieve his discomfort and possibly save his life?

I have a 10 year old female Alaskan Malamute that has
i have a 10 year old female Alaskan Malamute that has pancreatitis. I called the vet over to my house and she checked her out and took blood and sent it to the lab and i got the results Tuesday. She is on meds now for it since Wednesday. Tramodol for pain and Thyroxine because She does have underactive thyroid gland. Her hormone level is actually too low to read! She is also in early kidney failure. the vet also gave her low fat, easy to digest food, but she has not eaten in 7 days, Just drinks water, i try to give her as little as i can so she dose not have much. She was vomiting up yellow liquid on monday July 11th just before the vet came over. She kept vomiting though the week until saturday mid day.The vet gave her nausea tablets (Cerenia) and a coating agent (Sulcrate) in hopes that she will feel better enough to eat, and directions how and when to give here all the meds. That was Saturday. I gave her 1 Cerenia right away for the vomiting and within 5 minutes she vomited up the pill. Since then i have not given her that pill. I did give her the Sulcrate and am still giving her the tramadol and Thyroxine. I noticed on saturday night that she was salivating bad then and still is now and she cant get up now. My dog is real heavy and it looks like every 20-30 minutes she salivates bad like maybe she wants to vomit. I cant get her to eat and i thought she might be weak from not eating or even dehydration. I left a call in for the vet to come over tomorrow but she has not replied yet. any ideas what i can do? i put a small video up on youtube of her just now i took it so you can see her .https://youtu.be/VkytgitxgrU

I am dog-sitting my friend's 9 year old lab/pointer mix. She ate a stick of butter. She ate quite a bit of grass and vomited what appears to be about a stick worth of melted butter, wrapper and all. She is lethargic, but has gotten up to drink water. Not sure what to do as it is Sunday and her regular vet is closed.
