EnRe: Buddy: He is doing quite well. Cushings doesn't appear

EnRe: Buddy: He is doing quite well. Cushings doesn't appear to be an issue at present after testing with the Internal Medicine showed and he is back to a more normal behavior with walks and such. I continue to appreciate your input during a very frightening time for us.Now I have another issue and another question. Buddy has cataracts and while his eye DR says he will have some vision for several years he could use surgery to restore the eye sight now. With all that has gone on this is very expensive and our medical funds pretty tapped out for now. I read that castor oil disolves some cataracts and could be used one drop in the eye at night. Whether or not this is true would it hurt to just try it. We don't want to do anything that might harm his eyes further. Your opinion please?

We have a Welsh border collie, a female 15 months old. Last

We have a Welsh border collie, a female 15 months old. Last night she was fine, playful and running around. My wife noticed a slight cough but did not see it as very significant. I toileted her last thing and she was OK. This morning I came down to the kitchen to find blood on the floor. The dog was quiet and appeared unwell. She went to the toilet outside and took a short walk but was unable to eat her breakfast and bleeding resumed, then stopped. We have taken her to the vet and they have taken X-rays but cannot find anything obviously wrong or stuck in her stomach. She continues to be unwell, is having occasional bleeds and is described as anaemic. The next stage is a CAT scan and possible surgery. What might they be looking for? Many thanks.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the Welsh?Customer: Many thanks Pearl. Not really, they are highly active, very intelligent sheepdogs, basically.

Hi I shut the door on my dog leg I didnt see him right behind me and a little but of hair ripped off on both sides with a little bleeding on the skin. He is able to move it but doesnt want to walk on it. Now he's licking the wound.

I have a 2lb chihuahua puppy that suffered a pretty severe

Hello, I have a 2lb chihuahua puppy that suffered a pretty severe blow to the head when something fell on her. We took her right away to the vet, who did x-rays and an exam and said she would recover in a few days. She has a fairly large lump on her head. The vet shared that it is a good thing her skull is not fused and this will heal. She slept for about 16 hours and would not eat or drink. She only got up twice to go to the bathroom and was wobbly and walking in circles. The vet said this was to be expected. Today she has eaten and I was able to get one of her pills in her. She will not drink at all. She is not walking in circles as much but is still quite wobbly. My question is, today I noticed that it seems she has a hard time controlling her right eye. It seems a little lazy. I don't think this was before her head injury. Is this as a result of the swelling? Will this correct itself? I asked the vet if I should bring her back in and they said no, but I think the may feel I am overreacting. Also, I would appreciate any advice on helping her heal faster! Thank you!
