3 days ago, my 7lb 8 0z maltese started coughing in the

3 days ago, my 7lb 8 0z maltese started coughing in the morning and continued with almost every breath until the afternoon. Other than perhaps a cough or 2, she had not coughed prior to that. I took her to the vet right away. They x-rayed and ran blook tests. Everything OK except a small part of trachea, common in small dogs, they said. She is 9 yrs old. I have raised small dogs my entire life, (I am 79), cockers, pekinese, poodles, chihuhuas, morkies. Never had this problem until now. They prescribed her .03 mg hydrocodone and we came home. I might mention that I have had a terrible cough for about 2 weeks. A vet once told me that people could not catch disease from animals but the reverse was not true. Anyhow, the cough med seemed to help on day 1 but today her cough was worse. They had called yesterday and told me I could increase her cough me all the way to 1 mg if needed. I increased it to .05 and it helped some. Then the vet told me she was sending me an antibiotic, but I must not give her the cough medicine while she was taking the antibiotic. The "antibiotic" isTemaril-P, which I discovered is not an atibiotic at all but a steriod, as I suspected when reading the dosage instructions. The length of time she will be on this med from day 1 through the weaning period is 24 days. The cough medicine helps her so much I hesitate to start her on a regimine of another medicine which isn't even what I was told it is and may not give her the relief she has been getting. What should I do?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Coughing can be worrying. The Veterinarian will know what you should do. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about yesterday?Customer: Other than she seemed to have some relief, no. Today, I asked the vet to re-examine her x-ray because it sounded as if she was trying to cough something up. She said that she did but found nothing new. other than the narrowing of the trachea, she is very healthy, a bit overweight, but good heart and lungs.

Buster gash is clean as I can do and soaked with vetercyn

buster gash is clean as I can do and soaked with vetercyn spray with a loose bandage. It is oozing but not heavy. Do you think it will be safe to wait to see a vet tomorrow (52 miles away) or should I start driving to the nearest pet hospital ER (150+). He is sleeping no fever yet or swelling.

My dog who is 56 lbs started getting an allergic reaction

Hi Dr. Judy, My dog who is 56 lbs started getting an allergic reaction with swollen eyes, around her mouth and ears, excessive scratching, and vomiting. This started yesterday morning. I gave her 1 (25mg) pill every 4-6 hrs yesterday, but she woke up still very allergic. What is the correct dosage I should be giving her? She is breathing normally. This happened 2 weeks ago, brought her to the vet and the vet put her on Tamril P and it cleared her right up, but she just finished her round.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?Customer: I don't think so? The kids were opening their easter baskets at the time, though, so she could have gotten something and we did not see it.JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name?Customer: MollyJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Molly?Customer: She is eating, drinking, urinating, and pooping normally.

I have a golden retriever, he's 8.5 years old and he won't

Hi! I have a golden retriever, he's 8.5 years old and he won't step on his right paw. He is also not getting up now, not eating or drinking. We last took him to the vet 2 weeks ago for the same problem, and they found a little bit of arthritis and suggested daily 200mg of doxycycline twice a day for possible Lyme disease. She also prescribed rimadyl/carpofen which he has taken (and felt better) and gabapentin which we have not been giving to him. His blood work and X-rays of the paw were all normal. Any suggestions of what this could be? What should we do? He displayed some limping over the last 2 weeks, but generally has been feeling better until last night. Now he seems to be in terrible shape and not getting up.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the golden retriever. What is the golden retriever's name?Customer: SammyJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sammy?Customer: He used to have allergies and took temaril P for many years to control it

Kona is a chocolate lab who was very neglected the 1st 2

Kona is a chocolate lab who was very neglected the 1st 2 years of life, in a small kennel in a garage with no time for playing or interaction. He had severe ear infections ongoing until 2 years ago (he is 9 now)- we FINALLY got them cleared and clean his ears weekly as a preventative measure. Being chocolate he has severe allergies to environment and foods. On a salmon/chickpea diet (Nutrisca). He developed ear hematoma, had surgery on both last fall and is developing them again. Steroids help with keeping him from shaking his head, but can't live on them forever. Currently on a 3rd dose of Temaril-P in 3 months. Any advise???JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the 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?Customer: KonaJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Kona?Customer: Just info in my initial paragraph
