I have a 7 year old standard poodle with on and off again

I have a 7 year old standard poodle with on and off again bloody diarrhea - responsive to flagyl tho. We have had ultrasounds, X-rays, blood work and fecal exam - all normal. The vet is suggesting a colonoscopy. She had a horrid reaction to vaccine for leptosirios when she was a pup - with resulting liver issues. We do not give her vaccines on the specialists advice. Colonoscopy or not? Could anesthetic cause problems? Have to drive 3 hours to vet for scope. Thanks so much.

My puppy Kira got a vaccine today and orally took Trifexis

Hi Pearl, my puppy Kira got a vaccine today and orally took Trifexis about an hour later with food. Since then, she has been fine. But about 9 hours from her vaccine she threw up. I took her outside to use the restroom and she has diarrhea (not watery, mushy). Now, (about 40 minutes later) she threw up a small amount again. She sheens normal. Very tired but it is 2am so that's normal for her. Should I be more concerned?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 Kira?Customer: She's 5months old and a Husky puppy. No reaction like this beforeJA: OK. Got it.

I have a 7 year old male German Shepard who is in otherwise

I have a 7 year old male German Shepard who is in otherwise excellent health and current with all of his recommended vaccinations. He was neutered about a year ago. Over the last 24 to 36 hours he had not been able to keep food or water in his system without vomiting. He has just recently been drinking water without vomiting, and has been able to urinate. His last bowel movement, about 18 hours ago was small. He does not appear to be in distress but is more lethargic vs. his very energetic self. What would my next steps be?

I went to the vet today 11 week old lab puppy's second round

I went to the vet today for My 11 week old lab puppy's second round of vaccinations. Theres two doors in the examination room, one that the vet exits and goes into the back and one that we exit that goes back into the lobby. At the end of the appointment we exited and there was a man sitting right beside the door with 2 small dogs (looked kinda like a French bull dog but more muscular, maybe Boston terrier). It was instant, the second the door opened one of the two dogs immediately bit my puppy's nose hard!!! Split second, my puppy didn't know what hit him. He has a very large deep puncture wound on top of his nose. I was immediately pulled back into the examination room where I started crying and was super upset. Vet recommended to glue his nose together. They paid for the stitch up, I paid the $235 for everything else (vaccine, dewormed, stool sample). The other dog and owner were nowhere to be seen. I wanted to see the other dog owner but he was in the other examination room and they said the vet was talking to him about what happened. I waited outside in the parking lot for 10 minutes but I feel like they were waiting for me to leave before letting the other guy out so I left crying and very upset. I'm very shaken at this whole ordeal and my 11 week old puppy is stuck with a very swollen nose, large wound and a cone on his head. He may have some issues with the vets office or other dogs in the future and a scar on his nose. I am beyond mad. How should I deal with this? i don't know how to react. Is this just something that happens sometimes in vet offices?

My dog Pepper was diagnosed with pneumonia, not bacterial,

My dog Pepper was diagnosed with pneumonia, not bacterial, as the congestion is in his nasal cavity, but now the mucus is going to his lungs. He is coughing up as much as possible and is on numerous meds, but he is still laboring to breath, most likely from the congestion. I've been with him the last 2 days and monitoring him closely as his diagnosis was guarded. Should I take him back to our veterinarian today just for a follow up? Seemed when he was on oxygen, he did better, but not sure if that is the long term solution, but a little oxygen may not hurt. Also, keeping him in the AC is this good for him or should he be in a warmer climate. He's a long haired dachshund, so he's often warm with his fur. Thank you.
