In Sept. of 2016 I took my 8 year old schnauzer to the vet.

In Sept. of 2016 I took my 8 year old schnauzer to the vet. She received her vaccinations and she had an open sore on her back and the vet gave her an injection for bacteria. The bill says Cefpodoxime..however this drug only comes in tablet form. The instructions he sent me home with was for Cephalosporins which is an injection. Within 24 hours of the dog receiving these shots she was paralyzed in all limbs. She spent 7 days at Michigan State Veterinary Hospital a Teaching Hospital. I am trying to figure out exactly what happened and if the medications caused all of this. The vet diagnosed her with Myasthenia Gravis but stated he was not 100% sure what would cause it or if that was for sure really what she had or not. What is going on? Praise God she has recovered 100% at a cost of $ 4,000. I'm asking if Cefpodoxime and Cephalosporins is one in the same? She got a shot not a tablet and the statement from the vet charged us for Simplicef.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: HopeJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Hope?Customer: no that is it. She was perfectly healthy b-4 her doctor appt.

My dog Panzer is a nine year old Havanese. My current vet is

Hi, My dog Panzer is a nine year old Havanese. My current vet is way too expensive and my Trupanion Insurance is expensive as well (paid $600 in premiums last year and they covered nothing). I am thinking of changing insurance and changing vets. I have a free consultation and exam scheduled with Banfield Pet Hospital that is located in PetSmart. I have most of his records, but would like to organize them a little bit better in preparation for the visit. Can you kindly supply me with a list of all the vaccines and tests that are routinely done. On the bills I have from the vet office, I do see a lot of them with there next due date. For example:Rabies vaccine 3 years = due 10/26/17Heartworm and Tick Disease - last done 10/26/16Fecal stool sample for Giardia (antechamber) - last done 10/27/16Bordetella Intransal - last done 4/21/16In addition to the above, Panzer gets a CBC every six months because he had a positive reading for anaplasma. I opted not to treat him as the vet says he may never get the disease, but was exposed to it, so we just monitor his white count. Am I missing anything? For example, how often is the Bordetella intranasal given? Are most annual, with the exception of his rabies that I do every three years. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

I suspect that my dog is feeling nauseous because he won't stop licking everything. He had kidney disease and he takes an antacid one time a day. Is there anything else that I can do to help relieve his nauseousness?

My dog is shaking and then falling over. Mostly when drinking his water....I want to say noise triggers it but I have also seen him shake while he is laying down. The shaking lasts about 1-2 seconds and if he is standing he ends up falling back on his hind legs. He does have kidney disease. I found a youtube video that shows exactly what my dog is doing when I say he shakes and falls over. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RCehUyAc1EJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: My dog is shaking and then falling over.

My 7.5 year old male chocolate lab has a bump on his upper lip just below his nose. He is scheduled for his 3 year rabies vaccine next month, but I am curious if this is something that he should have looked at sooner.
