Tesla 4 1/2 months, our newly adopted mini dachshund, was

Tesla 4 1/2 months, our newly adopted mini dachshund, was refusing to eat the puppy chow from the previous family. She was very thin. We noticed maggots in the puppy chow. Can't blame her there. I got her new puppy chow and a natures path blend to wean her onto. Her tummy is very fat now. She doesn't act gassy or uncomfortable. Acting normal. Just a big tummy. Everyone's commenting. She's so fat. Could she be sick from the maggots.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dachshund's name?Customer: Tesla. Our last dachshund was Harley. We got Harley's. Would like to drive a Tesla now too.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tesla?Customer: She came from a home with an autistic 5 year old girl that was mean to her.

Second opinion] stomach issues re-occuring every 3 to 4

Second opinion] stomach issues re-occuring every 3 to 4 days.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?Customer: he is a mix of datsun and terrier. I got him from a rescue shelter in January of this year. They told me he was 4 years old. Weighs 26 LBJA: OK. What is the terrier's name?Customer: RustyJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Rusty?Customer: We have been told by my local vet that he has an alergy to a food product. We were told to get him off anything with Chicken or Beef. We have done that. He is on a Limited Ingredient Diet. We are making sure he doesn't get what he is not supposed to have. When he is having his stomach problem he will not eat and his stomach makes loud noises so that you can hear it while he is sitting next to you. He will also poop everything out of his colon until he is pushing out clear liquid and then rub his butt on the ground. He will sometimes throw up and it always looks like phlem.JA: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did Rusty eat anything unusual?Customer: No, we have been very careful.

5 yr old American Pitbull was diagnosed with roundworms.

5 yr old American Pitbull was diagnosed with roundworms. Given Drontal 2 tablets 10days apart. Given Doxycycline for 28 days. Had tarry diarrhea today. What can be the cause?JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?Customer: Tarry like diarrhea earlier today.JA: Where does the dog seem to hurt?Customer: he doesntJA: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?Customer: just the diarrhea. Tired but he was bathed today and normally comes back tired. Did have less of an apetite but still eating.JA: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?Customer: Oscar.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Oscar?Customer: Diagnosed with roundworms 4 weeks ago. Was given 2 doses of Drontal 10 days apart. He had a positive blood work for lyme disease last summer and did have a limp in his front led in December. I gave him glucomax because the vet thought it might have been an injury. I stopped giving him the glucomax. Then Iimp reoccurred in March. I asked the vetenarian to do a fecal test. He came back positive with roundworms. He was given Drontal for 2 weeks and then doxycycline going on to 4 weeks at the end of this week. Not sure if the vet suspects that the limp maybe had to do with lyme disease. The tarry stools started around the same time as the worms. Got better, but was present again today. He has another fecal test due this week. Also will be requesting an analysis of his urine. My dog is difficult to control at the vet and so I am wondering if there is anything else that I can request or any ideas of what it might be?
