I have a shepard mix 11 years old. He is in good health I think - eats drinks plays with other dogs. Have been having problems with blood discharge from his anus. Had ultra sound - found small tumor in spleen. Had xray of lungs all clear. Vet has had him on prednisone for quite awhile. now on 10 mg of above daily. Helped for awhile but now problem back. Food is Merrick limited ingredient diet turkey. HELP !!JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: This condition does not seem to bother him though. Before I rescued him at 7 mos old he was hit by car and dragged a bit. This resulted in removal of his male parts. Once again, no problem with that

On Saturday my 1 year old French bulldog ate 8-10 15mg

On Saturday my 1 year old French bulldog ate 8-10 15mg meloxicam pills. He acted totally fine until Monday afternoon. He became very lethargic and wasn't eating and vomited 4 times on Monday. Took him to the vet and they gave him fluids and put him on some medications. Cerenia, 24mg, once a day/sucralfatg, 1gm, every 8 hours. He still isn't eating and what he does eat he throws up. He also has black diarrhea since Tuesday and has no energy and can't seem to find a comfortable position to be in.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 the Veterinarian should be aware of about the bulldog?Customer: That's all

My dog is a 12 yr. old black lab mix who has lost weight in

My dog is a 12 yr. old black lab mix who has lost weight in the past 1 1/2 yrs. She was around 80 lbs. and now closer to 60. Every so often she had spells of gagging (maybe 6 mos.apart) for a few hrs. throws up because of eating grass or etc. and then will be normal again for some time. She has a BM usually twice a day and gets a cup of dry food 3 times a day. Has always eaten as fast as possible and still does. Walks a mile a day. My vet had no answers (twice) and just had me feed her rice and chicken for a few days to soothe her stomach. any suggestions?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: With her spells being that far apart I thought it was because of eating too fast and not being able to handle it anymore. her last gag spell was in Jan. Urinations are about the same as always. The 1st gag spell happened about 3 yrs. ago and are not frequent.

  • My Jack Russell is drinking a lot of water and urinating constantly. He also is mounting my Bulldog and she is spayed. He only does this behavior when he is in this drinking water phase. I have given him antibiotics and it seems to help for a little while, but he will still drink a lot of water.
  • We have a male pit who is leaking abs urinating blood.... What can cause this?
  • I think my dog had a stroke is there any medication that the vet can give him to help or does it just have to run its course. He's urinating a lot and has lost his vision
