My dog ate some spilled flour on the floor. At first i unfortunately didn't know any better and thought maybe she had a cold. I got an antibiotic for her. I didn't know anything about wtetching vut just figured it out now. She is not doing the wretching except for a few seconds a few times a day. Will she be ok? Oh dear... It happened on Thursday and i thought she had a cold on friday so my vet gave me an rx for her. She wasn't seen at the vets ofc. I was trying to save money due to my recent scoliosis dx on myself. She is sleeping now and i havea vaporizer on her now too.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Jessilynn and she is 8 yrs old. Otherwise healthy and great muscle tone. She is a shih tzu. We walk an hour a day and i love her dearly. I made a terrible mistake and didnt think anything horrible when it happened because she has had a fourth piece of toast here and there. She ate perhaps a half a tsp of it fJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jessilynn?Customer: Fyi

My 8.5 lb, 13 year old Yorkie rescue is having heart
My 8.5 lb, 13 year old Yorkie rescue is having heart disease/COPD symptoms. He spent a day in the hospital with trouble breathing. He rallied after a dose of steroids. He is now taking temaril-p 1/2 tab, benazepril HCL 2.5 mg, and furosemide 10 mg. he also takes levocrine 0.1 mg a day for thyroid. He has been on meds for 3 days and his symptoms have worsened. He is struggling to breath. He is eating & drinking and is moving around, but the snorts and congestion is worse. What do I do? He has recovered from paralisis mid back disc issues, and has lost a lot of his sight and hearing. He is such a fighter, but I don't want to prolong his life if he is miserable. We adopted him @ 6 years old, but assume he is older.Poor guy. I would love an opinion or maybe I haven't allowed the meds time to work? He has been on low fat diet for 6 months.Thanks for your help.Worried human, Angela

I have a 5 year old female spayed doberman who recently (
I have a 5 year old female spayed doberman who recently ( 2-3 months ) started leaking urine while at rest . I took her to the vet and she told me she was overweight and needed to lose some . Also told me her vulva after she urinates forms a cup and holds the urine and when she is at rest it releases and comes out. She was put on antibiotic and a diet of 1 cup of food and 2 cans of green beans. She lost about three pounds, and it seems to have subsided a bit. However last night she was in bed with me and had massive urine leakage., She was out cold sleeping. The doctor said they could fix the vulva with surgery , however I have looked this up and surgery has not been an option. Any suggestions. Also no tests have been done so I am a bit concerned that maybe my vet is missing something.

Pup is hacking and wheezing; sounds congested.
I have a 16 week old Berner pup and he is hacking and wheezing. Sometimes as he exhales, he sounds congested. He has slight drainage from both eyes. He tends to snort or wheeze most when he's playing or excited. Sometimes, he'll snore at night. We've had him for a month now. He's had all his shots. We kept him away from serious dog interactions until he'd had them all. He's had one on one obedience training, but not with lots of dogs. He's encountered a couple dogs while on walks, but we were careful to keep him as isolated as possible. He was coughing and wheezing a big when he first arrived, but it didn't seem likely that kennel cough would last this long. What would be your suggestion? He's eating and drinking. He plays and in all other ways seems perfectly normal.
