We have lost all our hopes, but here is a situation in short
Hi, we have lost all our hopes, but here is a situation in short - we got a German shepherd puppy (now 3 months old) on April 6th. Few day later we get him to a veterinarian for a second shot and she gave him also Advantix on three places along his back. After 24 hours he begun to have strikes with shaking, circling around like a mad, loosing idea of space around him... so we took him to another vet and they gave him infusion to clean this advantix out of him. He take it for 4 days, and after that he begun to act normally, but in very small steps. We thought that he is afraid because of all this stress, and not knowing us so good also. And he was eating and drinking water, having his medication and it seems it will be ok. But then, a week ago he started with those strikes again, shaking all the time, for example, he haven't sleep more than ten minutes in a row for last three nights. all he had slept was yesterday at the vet for a half an hour after infusion and shots for relaxing. On Saturday afternoon he stopped to drink water, and urinate, and no feces except during spasms. Sorry for taking me so long, I'm from Croatia, so I try to translate all this medical things in English, as it is not my native languageJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?Customer: Dog name is ***** ***** Veterinarian don't know what to do. we had no similar experince beforeJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Ben?Customer: we just got puppy, so we also don't know if there is an problem before that. he was acting little bit fearful when we got him, but we thought that it is because he just arrived

I have 4 mos old, 4.20 lbs pomeranian pup, swallowed a
I have 4 mos old, 4.20 lbs pomeranian pup, swallowed a cooked chicken bone. I wasn't sure how big it was but thought of it as pretty big (at least for her) as there were parts sticking out of her mouth, I was able to hold onto a part and try to take it away from her, but in her (maybe) panic she swallowed it. I am not seeing any symptoms yet, but it has only been 30 mins. I am very concerned for the reason that she just got better from an upset stomach yesterday. The past 5 days she had an upset stomach and was vomiting, it also took her couple days to be able to defecate. Vet gave us medicine for stomach ulcers and antibiotic and I still have couple days to finish her med, and she swallowed another thing, shes not suppose too and it might even be worse than the first one. Please help! cJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: That's it. What should I do?

I stood on my maltese/minature poodle pups foot this morning. She yelped and yelped. She settled quickly but just sticks her front poor straight out and will not weight bare on it at all. This happened 3 hours ago. When I feel all over her leg, she does not pull it away or whimper so there does not appear to be any specific painful spot. Any ideas.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: No there is no wound at all, if I lightly squeeze the joints she does not react at all either. She is just sleeping a lot moreJA: What is the miniature poodle's name and age?Customer: Riley and she is 4 1/2 months oldJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Riley?Customer: No

I have a 11 year old Shihtzu and a week ago when I opened
I have a 11 year old Shihtzu and a week ago when I opened the door so she could come down the three steps to outdoors I noticed her head was cocked of to the side and she seemed scared to come down the steps. She would not come down and was leaning to her left side and seemed dizzy. I took her to my vet and he said she probably had swelling around a nerve. He gave me prednisone and a antibiotic to give her. After five days she was very lethargic and didn't want to eat so I quit giving her the prednisone. One day latter she got her appetite back but now she is shaking like she is cold. I cover her up while she is laying beside me and she seems hot and starts panting but she is still shivering. She is smacking and licking her nose and seems to have a hard time swallowing. I don't know what to do. Didn't know if it could be kidney or liver disease or maybe Addison's disease.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?Customer: MollyJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Molly?Customer: No
Came home from work today to find my 2 year old Chihuahua
Hi! Came home from work today to find my 2 year old Chihuahua didn't greet me at the door in his usual hyperactive manner. He was shaking and didn't want to walk much. Seemed almost like he thought he was in big trouble. Like he was sulking with his head and tail down. He was shaking (not unusual for him) but way more than normal. He's eating and drinking and has done a normal bowel movement. No blood in urine or stoolJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: Seems to be walking a bit funny with his back legs (can still walk) just slowly and stops periodically. His stomach seems a little swollen on one side but that could be because he's leaning a bit to one side. I've touched all around his legs and stomach and he's not making any indications that anything is bothering him.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the Chihuahua?Customer: We put him on the couch to relax and when he's jumped off he seemed to be in quite a bit of pain. Didn't make any sounds, just stopped with his head and tail down again.JA: What is the Chihuahua's name?Customer: Chimi
