I have a 9lb miniature 3 yr old poodle. This is her 3rd day

Hello. I have a 9lb miniature 3 yr old poodle. This is her 3rd day of having a on and off gagging cough. 3 days ago she was up all night pacing and went outside constantly. The next day she did vomit up all of her food. I don't think she has kennel cough as she hasn't been around any dogs other than her sisterJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the poodle eat anything unusual?Customer: That I don't know about. I do have kids and am wondering if she got something off their br floorJA: What is the poodle's name?Customer: AmbrosiaJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Ambrosia?Customer: The cough / gagging isn't constant. But definitely not normal for her. I'm like most people I'm trying to decide about a vet visit which will cost a lot with X-rays, etc

I have a 11 month old female boxer with congenital chronic

I have a 11 month old female boxer with congenital chronic kidney failure.which was diagnosed at the approximate age of 6M. It was determined that she has 20% function. With an ultra sound, it was determined that she has a reduced size kidneys.Since then, she has been on a Purina NF diet and a low does of Pepsid. A month or so after diagnosis, I also visited a Natural Medicine vet to see what they could suggest. I'm open minded and believe this puppy deserved whatever could help her live a quality of life as long as possible. Based on her blood test, he recommended supplements that addressed her potassium level, blood cleansing, renal, and pancreas. Now, at 11 months, her symptoms are at the same frequency/intensity (excessive drinking and urination and diarrhea). However, her fur has turned from coarse to VERY soft and thicker. She continues to run and play with the rest of my boxers (2 others). In about a month, I plan on having her blood work performed again to see where things stand.THE QUESTOIN IS: Should a young dog with this condition receive vaccines? DHPP? L? C? Rabies? I do not want her compromised condition to be strained with vaccines.

I have a question about my puppy. Nothing is the matter.

Hi. I have a question about my puppy.JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with your puppy?Customer: Nothing is the matter. It's more of a general question. I got his sister about 7 weeks ago at 8 weeks old and have been taking her to get rounds of shots at the vet after she received an initial 5 way shot. She's had 2 rounds with 1 more to go that includes rabies and such. I just got this puppy (her brother) this weekend, now 15 weeks old. The owner said that he had a 5 way (same time she did) and also a "9 way?" I want them to get on the same type of schedule but have no idea what shots he needs to catch up. The only thing I know that he needs for sure is rabies and kennel cough.JA: Coughing can be worrying. The Veterinarian will know what you should do. What is the puppy's name?Customer: He's not coughing. Not at all what I said. I'm assuming I'm typing to automated answers?JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your puppy?Customer: Yep, Just as I thought
