My niece has a beautiful 3 year old Australian Shepherd,
My niece has a beautiful 3 year old Australian Shepherd, Pablo, who was run over about 7 months ago resulting in 3 surgeries to stabilise the damage to his spine. He is walking and running again which is a fabulous miracle. Unfortunately, he is faecally and urinary incontinent. My niece has learned to palpitate his bladder so he is empty but he still poos as he walks and seems unaware that he had done so. Everytime he is outside he assumes the position with no result. Can you assist. It is fantastic how far he has come and he is still having weekly physio and swims between once and twice a week but this proud and loving animal needs help to overcome the poo problem. He has no use of tail and the break in spine is about 5 inches from his tail. Thank you any suggestion gratefully received. regards ***** *****
Please help. ive been giving my dog prednisone couple of
Hi there . Please help . ive been giving my dog prednisone for a couple of weeks , half a pill , I believe it 0,5 mg ... And at first he was doing fine , then he changed and I feel like he started feeling worse . I took him back to the vet Nd he said to increase the dose twice . Also he gave him other medication , some sorta pain killer tramadol??? ( narcotic ) and another something that contains glucosamine and other stuff , dasequin or something like that ( chewable tablets) . I feel like my dog is feeling worse than ever after tramadol . He is sad , skinny , can't walk , lost muscle mass .... Is it my imagination or that could be the side effects . Should I stop the tramadol , and are there any supplements you would recommend , that you so much in advance .JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: He is 10 years old and 120 lbs . Blue nose Pitt , super sensitive stomach . I can't put him down yet , I feel like he wants to live , he eats well , wags his tail and still wants to go for a walk .... Even though he can't . Overall he has good health , no tumors , nothing . The dog is 100% , just his legs ... :(((((

My lab has Arthritis in her hip that acts up at times. Was swimming in the pool today and is now limping/favoring her right back leg. Good appetite, happy, loving as usual...but slightly whimpers getting up. Taking her to the Vet in the morning. I have Tramadol 50 mg & Rimadyl 100 mg both prescribed for her last summer after having a hip pain and limp tail. Exp date indicates 12/22/15, is it still safe to give her for tonight?
My dog had ACL surgery recently and that's when a second
Hi there,My dog had ACL surgery recently and that's when a second vetenarian that was present (a specialist in issues like the following) noticed that my dog has somewhat swollen rectal area (under his tail mainly). So he suggested to neuter him cause in all probability it's a rectal adenoma which could have a 95% chance to get better after neutering. Of course we got him neutered etc. A week after the surgery the area didn't really get any better and there is some mucus (probably the brown discharge I'm reading online that comes from the anal glands) coming out of his anus.Now, my question doctor is (as we already seen a specialist), is that supposed to happen after neutering and waiting for the adenoma to gradually go away? Is this an anal gland infection rather an adenoma as we were informed?Thanks in advance.
