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

Hello. I have a small 4.5 lb pommerianian chihuahua mix. She is 6 years old. On Saturday she threw up blood once and had diahhrea with blood. The only change in her diet was Cesar's wet dog food. I discontinued that immediately. She didn't eat much from Sat-till yesterday afternoon. She seems fine now and began eating chicken and rice that I have made her. Why did she trap up blood in the first place? Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: I just did

We just adopted a 17 month old french bulldog on Monday and

we just adopted a 17 month old french bulldog on Monday and he was neutered the same day. The past couple of days he was licking his paws a lot and throwing up a little water. This morning we took him into a urgent care to try and help him with his itchiness. His scrotum was swollen a little and red. The vet gave him a shot to control his itchiness and a shot for acid for his stomach. We were suppose to continue his pain meds and antibiotic pills when we got home. He isn't itchy anymore, but is lethargic and is throwing up a lot more. He hasn't eaten since we got home and I can't get him to take his pills. I'm hoping he can sleep it off and see how he feels in the morning, but not sure what to do if he keeps throwing up? He's drinking water and then throwing it up. When he inhales he kind of shakes a little.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the bulldog?Customer: I can tell you all the medicine if he wants to know
