My puppy has been acting up since my fiancée left last week.

My puppy has been acting up since my fiancée left last week. She used to be so calm and cuddly. She loved her crate. She slept so well. Now she howls and cries so so so high pitch and sharp and loud I can hear it outside and I live in an apartment complex with 4 surrounding neighbors :( she will do it all night and all day no matter what I do.She is sick right now as well. Benadryl, trazodone, melatonin have all had adverse effects and the vet would not prescribe anything else when I told him and he would not give her anything for her severe severe new and hopefully temp. Anxiety issue. Please help. I have not slept at ALL in 53 hours straight and I'm scared that I will soon end up in the hospital. I have asked my only person I have irl since I live somewhere new to help me and she said no (my mom) so if I am to go to the hospital I have no one to watch her her either and I have no one to help me. Please help what do I do. She's aggressive and won't go in her crate anymore. She's constantly hyper. She won't eat or drink much because of her meds and she's not allowed to go outside to run or exercise for a week. PLEASE HELP IM SCARED I WILL DIE.

Our golden lab mix has been vomiting his food lately after

Hi there! So our golden lab mix has been vomiting his food lately after every meal. We cannot figure out why and whether we should be concerned. He is urinating and defacating normally.

My dog has a chronic anal gland issues. I am trying to see

My dog has a chronic anal gland issues. I am trying to see if there was a way I could help her until I can get her to the vet. I know animax is rx only, but I wanted to see if using another spray she has been prescribed (reliflor) might help any furthering of infection. I didn't know if using warm salt compresses was appropriate. Her vet hasn't got back to me and the combination of her attacking it and the smell is getting to be pretty overwhelming.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations your dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Her name is***** is 2. She is Ann english mastiff in spectacular health (she has some separation anxiety which gives her the propensity to self injure but she is otherwise healthy. She is up to date on all heartworm, flea, deworming, and has had an stool culture done for worms in the last 6 months.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Annie?Customer: She is 145lbs. Idk she is only an indoor dog. I'm a stay at home mom and she is my assistant mom. Lol. This problem is making it hard to be around her too. :(

Per my vet recommendation, I give my 50lb standard Poodle 10

Per my vet recommendation, I give my 50lb standard Poodle 10 mg of Pepcid AC twice daily. Yesterday she got into some pretzels and she has grain allergies. She had one 10mg Pepcid AC at 8 AM and she is still uncomfortable. Can I give her another one? In addition to Pepcid AC she takes 4mg of Thyrosym. The dose of Thyrosym (4mg was 2mg) has doubled 2 weeks ago due to physical signs of need. She was nervous and her hair was not returning after being on medication 5 months, along with extremely dry skin. All blood work came back perfect my vet did a chem screen and CBC two weeks ago. She had separation anxiety too. I just want to give you a rundown on her because I know medication can interact with thyroid meds.

I have a Yorkie who is about five years old. She has

I have a Yorkie who is about five years old. She has problems with bowel movements, often taking much time. There are also times when she is left at home, she sometimes has to urinate and its almost out of spite that she does it right by the front door, she goes out back normally. Almost as if its a protest. The floor is white polished Mexican tile. I mention this because this is what Called me to attention of her urine. It's a dark color, almost brown. It has the consistency of syrup, I can see some of that might be drying but I don't think in even the short times Ive been gone, come back that its the case of natural evaporation. All of this says to a person that knows little about dogs but some about human dehydration, this might be the cause. She also gets lethargic and its obvious she doesn't feel good, my "GUESS" is maybe this is due to the build up of waste in the inability to possibly urinate or move her bowels. We have a water on demand dish, which she has access to at all times. Ive never seen her though, even after being out in the heat for a while, come in and do more than take a couple licks of water. If it is dehydration, how can you make a dog drink. Reminds me of the, "lead a horse to water" saying. Maybe its more than this. =.Thank you!
