My dog is experiencing peripheral neuropathy. She looks great

My dog is experiencing peripheral neuropathy. She looks great and had labs, X-ray and ultrasound and everything is completely normal. She is happy and all functions normal other than the onset of hind leg increasing weakness. She was treated with a few round of doxyrunbicin for swollen lymph nodes and possible lymphoma although her labs have never shown anything abnormal. she had girardia and has an infection in her lymph nodes now that she is being treated for and the lymph nodes have decreased after a week of treatment. What is your assessment? Could it be guianne barre syndrome or a latent side effect of chemo?

My 11 yr. old chocolate lab is diabetic and is suffering from

my 11 yr. old chocolate lab is diabetic and is suffering from some sort of respiratory issue. we check his urine twice daily and lately, have had to increase his insulin from 15 units to 17-18 range and still are not getting an entirely normal reading. our vet said he is having trouble breathing in, and couldn't offer a good explanation why. it sounds like what one would think pneumonia or bad bronchitis would sound. he took 500 mg. Keflex 2/day for 2 weeks with little change. it is not too bad at times. but tonight he is hyperventilating and can't seem to "catch" his breath. I think he is in distress, but his behavior isn't totally in keeping with distress. my husband does put him in the bathroom, which acts as a steam room for approx. 5-10 mins. per night. any suggestions?JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: he does have more trouble breathing in hot humid weather, but we are in western ny in march, with low humidity. if there was an obstruction, it doesn't make sense that it would be better at times.JA: OK got it.

Our 9 yr. old mixed breed (German Shepherd, Rottweiler, Husky)

Our 9 yr. old mixed breed (German Shepherd, Rottweiler, Husky) female dog has lost the muscles in her head. We feed her small bite food along with yogurt and pumpkin. She has trouble swallowing larger bits of food. Her breathing is very snorky but not labored. Her appetite is very good.Our vet noticed the lack of muscles on her head and said it was an auto-immune disease. As long as she is otherwise healthy, is there any reason to put her through tests (expensive) or put her on steroids (I believe they are worse than the auto-immune)?Thank you very much.Cindy Trapper
