My older dog has become very aggressive to our other dog. He

Hello Pearl, my older dog has become very aggressive to our other dog. He has had 2 cruciate ligament operations and has never properly recovered. I think some days he wakes up quite sore and it seems then that he is aggressive. Unfortunately now I have become paranoid and am looking for the certain look that he gives the other dog just before they go into a full fight. It's horrible to watch and makes me sad. I have not gone to the vet because I do not want the dog to be put on valium and be doped up all the time but I am at my wits end as to what to do - PetraJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. How old is Petra?Customer: My name is ***** ***** is Charlie. He is a miniature black poodle of 14 and half yearsJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Petra?Customer: I think it's a combination of his soreness and maybe a power struggle as the other poodle is slightly younger and I feel that he feels my anxiety

She is a 15yr old Australian sheppard mix. She has slowly

She is a 15yr old Australian sheppard mix. She has slowly lost weight over the last year which I attributed to age/declining health. For the last 8-9 months she paces around the house 24/7 when awake, and for the past few months she has been very persistent about getting her head rubbed/massaged around her ears and upper neck, several times a day. Bowels move fine and ussually urinates 3-4 times a day with good volume. She still walks around the block 1-2 times a day, usually sleeps well at night as well as more naps, which seem appropriate for age. She has been given aspirin in the past, but 325mg knocked her out for over 12 hrs and one time since I tried 81mg, with the same effect. She does have on/off eye drainage, mostly from the left eye. Just wondering if the pacing and intense head rubbing are symptoms of anything you are aware of. I don't want aggressive care, as my vet would like, due to age. I just don't want her to suffer and wonder if it would be better for her to be put down. The last 2 days were normal except she has not peed since yesterday morning and she paced most of the nite, but is now sleeping.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. 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: MollyJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Molly?Customer: She does have a kind of sweet smell around her head, which makes me think she probably has a chronic yeast problems.

My 6 year old Doberman has had some joint issues (or could

Hi Dr. B, my 6 year old Doberman has had some joint issues (or could have been a leg or shoulder injury as he's very active) and was recommended Dasuquin tablets which seems to be helping. My breeder has also recommended the brand Glycoflex, for glucosamine as its more pure in natural ingredients but I haven't used it yet as I was intending to finish the Dasuquin before starting the Glycoflex. Lastly, I just purchased Salmon Oil to add to my dog's existing diet in order to help improve and protect his heart/joints/skin, ect. (this brand: https://www.amazon.com/Grizzly-All-Natural-Supplement-Pump-Bottle-Dispenser/dp/B0002ABR6E/ref=sr_1_5?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1476246133&sr=1-5&keywords=salmon+oil+for+dogs)The issue is he's slightly overweight although he doesnt look it. You can faintly see his ribs but I think its more so, muscle mass. In efforts to help in lose 5-10 pounds since he's 100 now, what do you recommend I use? Is the salmon oil fattening for him? Can I use the Salmon oil in lower dosages along with the Dasuquin or Glycoflex?I've attached an image of him so you can see his weight. Thank you for your help and advice! Appreciate it!

Or should we not do the surgery? Very worried. I can't stand to see the difference in her. Please help

A month ago I took her to the dog park. She played and ran

A month ago I took her to the dog park. She played and ran just fine, kept fetching the ball for me to throw. She is an 80 pound pittbull. I got her home and she started limping. Putting intermittent weight baring on her back left leg. She only limped for about 2-3 days. I let it heal for a month and just took her on walks. She plays and jumps around with my other two small dogs just fine. Yesterday (after a month of no dog park to give it ample time to heal) I took her to the dog park and she was running, playing, and fetching the ball just fine... Then when I got her home she started limping on that same leg again. She had some Tramadol left from the last time so I have her some of that. I don't know what could be causing this. Tonight I gave her 300 mg of Gabapentin and 50 mg of Tramadol and I'm hoping that gives her some pain relief, as I did my research on the two and that they can be administered simultaneously. I don't know why she waits until she gets home to limp. I'm thinking she sprained her hip last month and the dog park just reinjured it. I felt her foot and her knee and moved them and it didn't bother her, and she seemed to love it when I massaged her hip, making these noises that sounded like I was relieving some pain. She loves the dog park, so I know not being able to go is making her pretty down in the dumps. She is only 4 years and 3 months old, and very muscular, so it's not old age or being out of shape or anything like that. I want her to be happy and its ripping my heart out seeing her sad face. How should I accommodate her hip pain (besides meds, since I have the medicine part covered)?JA: IÂ'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: Yes, there is no woundJA: The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name?Customer: Her name is*****JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Joon Bug?Customer: No. She loves long walks, and loves to lick people and her brother and sister to death, lol.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Madge is my 14year old black Lab. She has, up till now, been healthy with just age related aches and pains. In the last 6months she has had difficulty holding her bowels and as soon as she gets up to go out she involuntarily 'goes'. We now have a change in that she fouls her bed during the night and appears not to have noticed. She is still eating but her interest in anything else is very diminished. Don't want to put her through anything that distresses her but am pretty worried. Are we nearing her time?
