I brought home my 2 Siberian puppies yesterday. The breeder hadn't feed them breakfast or dinner to print car sickness etc. I gave them a 1/4 ration when we arrived home then a few hours later another 1/2. They are energetic, calm, drinking, playing etc. They developed diarrhea last evening, varying consistencies, no unusual smell, mucous or blood. They have had their first round of vaccines, have been wormed 3x since birth. I purchased them from a reputable AKC breeder.

Hi have a new puppy, just got off the plane last night and he will twist his tail sharply to the side and sort of snap back at his hind leg.I was thinking it could be gas?? Now it is almost 8 am and he still does the same thing. He can stand normally, tail straight and then a few seconds letter he kind of crunches to the side tail twisted sideways and favoring that back hind almost like he is crippling up on that one back side

I am becoming concerned about the excessive use of vaccines and medications at my vet clin

I am becoming concerned about the excessive use of vaccines and medications at my vet clinic. I have two dogs in the 25 lb range and they have prescribed heartworm meds for both in the 26-50 lb range. I am concerned they are getting too much. They are both on Iverhart Max which contains 136 mcg of Ivermectin; 114 mg of pryrantel; 114 mg of praziquantel. Is this too much for a 25-26 lb dog? One of them has been previously treated for heartworm. I am also considering limiting their vaccination schedule to a three year interval. They currently have 3 yr rabies vaccinations and 3 yr distemper/parvo/combo vaccination. Since they are not boarded or in contact with other dogs often I am considering eliminating the Lepto, Coronavirus and Bordetella. Please advise your opinion on this. I want them to be healthy but have been reading a lot of material on the consequences of our overuse of vaccinations in this country. My vet clinic in particular is always pushing another vaccine.

My puppy had her first set of vaccinations in January, second

My puppy had her first set of vaccinations in January, second set in February then had two heart procedures (PDA and Pulmonic balloon angioplasty) which interrupted her vaccination schedule. She received the third set in May. Is it really necessary to give another round of vaccines because the series was interrupted? This seems like an attack on her immune system!

My 7 month old male boxer has had constant eye discharge for

My 7 month old male boxer has had constant eye discharge for about a week now, around the same time I attached the flea/tick Shoo Tags on to his collar, even though our flea season has not started up yet. He threw up his dinner last night, so I removed his collar thinking it might be these tags (that are suppose to be safe, runs off the dogs own energy field). He's played all morning, full of energy, going nonstop. He went in and ate, then immediately threw up. I vaccinated him myself at 16 weeks with the 5 way vaccination. He has not had his Rabies vaccination, we are going to get that done when he gets neutered. But, I don't think he was ever dewormed, but I have not seen any signs of worms in his poop though. My only other thoughts are he was in the bathroom while I was cleaning with bleach, and the smell was so strong that even my own eyes watered, plus I've been cleaning his pee messes in the houses with bleach. ????
