My lab is 13. He has been diagnosed with bladder cancer in

My lab is 13. He has been diagnosed with bladder cancer in March and he strains to wee. He is now incontinent for urine and leaks everywhere but otherwise seems ok. He has often got blood in his pee. Since two weeks ago his urine smells really foul. I had a urine sample tested for bladder infection in the hope this might be the cause so antibiotics might lessen the smell but the test has come back negative. Is it normal for his wee to smell so foul ? I am wondering if it therefore time for him to go...?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: HoyoJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Hoyo?Customer: No there is no treatment ultimately for his cancer but I hoped I could keep him going while he likes his food and short walks but the smell of the urine on the floors is now impossible however often I mop

Last night after I picked my dog up from doggie day care I

Hi! Last night after I picked my dog up from doggie day care I noticed he was walking slower than normal. When we got home, he seemed shaky on his legs and didn't want to walk a lot. He also has trouble sitting. While I was out today he pooped on the floor, which he never does - he always waits to go outside. Last thing - some of his paw pads are ripped, but not to the point of bleeding, just the top layer.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: Just the top layer of the pads on 3 feet are torn. But not to the point of drawing blood, it seems very surface level.JA: What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Finley, he's 1JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Finley?Customer: Noe *nope

For the past 4 years our schnauzer has used our fenced in

For the past 4 years our schnauzer has used our fenced in backyard freely as his oasis. He has NOT been regularly dewormed since he usually is in our backyard or on pavement walks with us. For half the year there is a lot of snow outside. We try to pickup weekly but some feces will go unnoticed until much later because they can be so tiny. My daughter was born in January and we started deworming him monthly in June along with flea and tick medication. He has never shown and outward signs of having worms...but I know that sometimes dogs can carry roundworms without any signs. Is there a chance the dog can potentially bring in eggs from potentially contaminated soil in the backyard from the past four years? What are the chances he will bring in something that can harm my baby? Should I limit his access to the backyard from now on?
