She's really itchy, so much so that she can barely go for a walk without stopping to scratch. We adopted her a week ago, and ithe itching started shirtly after that and has gotten much worse since then. At first it was just a little scratching, now it's nearly constant. We gave her NexGard today so if it's fleas it should be gone by tomorrow. The vet also suggested we give her Zyrtec, so we tried 10mg of that. Her food is gluten and corn free. Suggestions?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: No wounds on her feetJA: What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Annie, 9 yrs old.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Annie?Customer: She had a lepto shot today.

Second opinion] My dog Abby's health I think is getting

Second opinion] Hi My dog Abby's health I think is getting worse, she was diagnosed with nasal cancer 3 weeks ago. She had a nasal discharge that stopped but now the same kind of bloody mucus is being discharged through the eye that is on top of the swollen area, I guess over the tumor location. Is that a bad symptom or can she still have some quality of life. Her two last nights were not good as she was p[acing and had a very labored breathing, Do you think is time to let her go? I know it is a very hard question to answer but I'm not sure if she will still quality timeThank you

Ms., Thank you for taking my question. My 75 pound dog

Hello Ms. Wilson, Thank you for taking my question. My 75 pound dog injured one of her front nails on Valentine's day and it was turned upside down. We took her to our Vet and a Vet Tech took her to the back, nipped off the 'thread' that was holding the nail so my dog was left with the entire quick exposed. Her foot was wrapped at the office and we were told to keep it covered for a couple of days and then unwrap it, which we did. She was sent home with three pain pills (one per day) which we gave her. I uncovered it and she didn't bother it much at first and it was looking pretty dry. The second day of exposure, Freckles began licking it constantly so I soaked it watered down peroxide and patted it dry and left it open to the air during the day and she wore the cone, I re-wrapped her paw for the night and she would leave it alone. I have been checking it every day it is infected and terribly sore. I also soaked it in epsom salts as I was told I 'could if I wanted'. It is very wet and slimy with a small amount of blood and a greenish-yellow goo. I have trimmed as much of the fur away from the area because it gets stuck in the good. Today (the 20th) she is vomiting since breakfast. Her foot is wrapped to keep it clean and I have put some Polysporin on it now as it's the only antibiotic I have on hand. Our Veterinarian's office is closed today as it's a holiday here. We will, if he can see her, get her in to him tomorrow. It there anything I should be doing in the meantime? I'd like to make her more comfortable and am not sure whether the wound should be covered or open at this point. Can you give me any advice to help her, and me, for the rest of today and overnight? Thank you so much. kindest regards, jeanenne allison ***@******.***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 your dog?Customer: Oh wow, you're quick, thanks! She is otherwise very healthy and her Dr. has been seeing her all of her 8 years. Her gums are still pink and also the inside part of her eyelids and I do't believe she has a fever. That should have been "don't"

We have an older Weimaraner. A couple of years ago he had surgery to repair a torn ACL. Now in that same leg, he is bending the paw over and walking on the top, dragging that leg and is extremely weak in his back legs. He isn't acting like he is in pain. He is taking Glycoflex and I also started him on Fish Oil. He is taking 10 mg of thyroid medicine. PepperJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: Yes, I took him to our vet and he said he thought it was a neurological degeneration. He gave us some pain pills.JA: The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the Weimaraner's name?Customer: Gunner. The vet said to exercise him more and hopefully it will get better. It really hasn't. The fish oil seems to help though.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gunner?Customer: No. My great-grandmother's name was Pearl Wilson!

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

My terrier is having hiccup / feed type symptoms all night

My terrier is having hiccup / feed type symptoms all night with head bob that is pretty visible. I suspect he collected a small amount of power amdro type solution on his paws yesterday and I think he has possibly licked his paws and ingested it. Is there something I can give him to alleviate his symptoms?
