My dog is panting, shaking and vomiting bile. She is a miniature fox terrier cross JR. she won't eat but she is drinking a lot of water. It is late at night here so no vet open. What do I do ?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your fox terrier eat anything unusual?Customer: I'm not sure. I give her a raw chicken neck every morning, as recommended by Dr Harry, celebrity vet. I may have not noticed that she had buried it to eat later. The problem is that we are having a heat wave here in Brisbane Australia so the nest would go bad very quickly. I usually make sure she eats it but I was distracted and perhaps she slipped out without me seeing herJA: What is the fox terrier's name and age?Customer: Bella age 7JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bella?Customer: She is usually a happy, active little dog. I can't think of anything else. I first noticed her throw up bile yesterday which she has done before but within 24 hours she is fine. This time is different in that she is shaking a lot and won't leave my side

I have an 8year old border collie cross sheltie. When he was young he pulled a ligament the vet suggested surgery was an option but could not gaurentee it would not return.

I have a st Bernard. She has a big patch on her tail that is

I have a st Bernard. She has a big patch on her tail that is thick crusty bumpy black scabby like area. Hair is growing from it but when I was brushing her I noticed it. I touched it and it hurt her I thought something was stuck in her tail. It smells really really gross. I pulled at it really lightly and a huge nasty clump came out and all the hair was attached to it. Underneath that area it started bleeding. I left the rest of that area alone. Although I washed her tail in a hydrogen peroxide based shampoo the vet gave us. I put some cortisone on it and bandaged it. Gave her Gabapentin (she takes it for her joints & autoimmune issues). Then this evening I was clipping her nails and the inside of both her back legs are like her tail and so are all her paws. What's happening to her??JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: She has thyroid issues

My dogs got into a new bag of raisins on Friday the 13th.

My dogs got into a new bag of raisins on Friday the 13th. (Because of course.) They managed to get 1 cup of raisins out of the bag. I don't know who ate what, but I guessed that the 55 lb lab mix ate most of them and the 30 lb cocker mix ate a few. When I got home and realized what had happened, I called their on-call vet and she had me give them hydrogen peroxide to make them vomit. They both vomited but I only got raisins out of the lab mix. I gave them raw eggs with their food the next day and stalked the backyard looking for piles of partially digested raisins. I found most of them and threw them away so the lab mix wouldn't eat them again, because she's nasty. The vet didn't seem concerned about testing their kidneys, but said I can get them tested next week if I want. Does it matter at this point? Both are acting fine and drinking and peeing and pooping.
