My husband and I ran errands this evening. We came to find that one our dogs got into the trash can. I had thrown away a partial bag of raw potatoes, a few of which were smelly and rotten. Amongst other things, we think he, and possibly our other do may have eaten some of them. The bag was about 1/4 full with little potatoes, small reds. I am worried for them. My husband thinks he will be fine. Your thoughts?

My dog has been vomiting up partially digested dinner in the

My dog has been vomiting up partially digested dinner in the middle of the night for two nights now. She's on raw diet all her life and what I found in her vomit is only this Vets All Natural Complete mix, basically a mix of dried up ingredients like Rolled oats, cracked barley, flax seed meal, carrots, split peas, calcium carbonate, yeast, parsley, kelp, lecithin, barley grass, Vitamin C and garlic that I pre-soaked and add to her raw diet. She's been eating this all her life too but never had a problem. She eat her dinner at around 5pm, then I'll give her a little snack before bed as she has a tendency to vomit bile when she's been hungry for too long. However since the night before, she has been vomiting up some undigested dinner in the middle of the night (I'm not sure what time she vomits in the night but she sleeps in her own bed at around 11pm and when I wake up the next morning I'll find a pile of vomited un-digested food on her bed). She doesn't vomit during the day, and her vomit does not contain the raw bones and meat she ate, it's just mostly the vets all natural complete mix. She's pooping fine and acting normal otherwise. I didn't change any of her meals besides this supplement powder I recently bought which I started like 4 days ago, and on the night when she first vomit, we took her to this new friend's place which she was very anxious about, and keeps whining and pacing around the house as its a new environment for her, so I'm not sure if this anxiety disturbed her digestive system or it's the new supplement powder I added, or because of the cold temperature as its winter here in Australia. But I find it weird she only vomits in the middle of the night, and it's the food she ate like 10+ hours before.

My dog is a lab / springer spaniel cross. He's 5 and a half.

Hi, my dog is a lab / springer spaniel cross. He's 5 and a half. He is fine on walks, is eating, has energy, is not being sick; but in general he is not his usual active self. The symptoms are: frequently during the day (on average every hour and more in the morning and evening) he gives a short wince of acute pain and often goes into the praying position -stretching out. This is usually, but not always, associated with getting up from lying down. This has been going on for about 10 days. He went to see the Vet last Friday. They said that they suspect he has gastric ulcers and gave a course of Antepsin and Zitac. He has been taking these for 3 days and we have changed his diet from raw food to chicken and rice over the last 3 days - on their advice. There doesn't seem to be much change. Can you offer your opinion. Thanks.JA: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your springer spaniel. What is the springer spaniel's name?Customer: TallisJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Tallis?Customer: NoJA: OK. Got it.

My dog was diagnosed with kennel cough. Given the standard

My dog was diagnosed with kennel cough. Given the standard antibiotic and temaril p. Since being on the temaril, he's had zero coughing episodes. I know conditions typically get worse, and he has not. Whatever was causing it has not seemed to progress as he shows no other signs of being ill. He's eating, playing, chasing aquirrels and mailmen, barking at the kids on the street and such. The vet listened closely to his heart and lungs and heard nothing. He just said that his tonsils were slightly inflamed. Now, I'm not sure how he got sick. He doesn't interact with other dogs. He hasn't gotten loose. He went to a groomer 3 weeks ago, but the incubation period is 3 to 10 days, so he likely didn't get it there. So that scares me. But all things being said, he is perfectly normal while on the temaril/antibiotics coctail. Is there any kind of indication I would see that he is getting better? Or is the temaril just masking the issue and will he regress when we stop the meds?

Every time we put my Great Pyrenees in the outdoor kennel,

Every time we put my Great Pyrenees in the outdoor kennel, she scrubs her backside, above the tail, until the skin is raw. I'll keep her in, use antibacterial/anti fungal shampoo treatments and in between use apple cider vinegar on the area. I'll get her healed,and the hair grows back. The very next time we put her in the kennel, she does it all over again. I'm at a loss as to what to do!JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Her name is ***** ***** she is 5 years oldJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Alice?Customer: She has been treated for a fungal infection before that stemmed from her ears, but her ears are clean and do not have that odor, but her tail area does.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.
