Our 13 yr old cocker appears to have had some sort of
Our 13 yr old cocker appears to have had some sort of seizure. We found her in a corner where she had thrown up twice. She was shaking and her eyes were bulging and twitching quite quickly. As we were consoling her and trying to calm her she threw up one more time. She has now stopped shaking and resting quietly but her eyes are still twitching back and forth, although not appearing to be bulging. She was swallowing quite a bit but doesn't want to drink. She has now laid her head down and appears resting quietly. Her eye movements are greatly reduced now. She is not panting but breathing a little faster than normal.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 important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: She has recently been put on medication for thyroid...hang on, I'll get what they are.
Our 11lb dog snatched up our 45 lbs Trefexis pill this
Our 11lb dog snatched up our 45 lbs Trefexis pill this morning. We did research possible side effects so expected her to vomit. However, we hoped that would have been soon after she ate it. Well here is 12 hrs later and she's vomited all of her dinner and just recently what looks and smells like to me, a huge portion of thr tablet. Just concerned with the lapse of time or is this somewhat to be expected?JA: 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: No. We really expected her to be lethargic but not at all. She's been herself all day....just vomited now

I live in 100 degree + temperatures. My normal active 4 yrView more dog veterinary questions
I live in 100 degree + temperatures. My normal active 4 yr old shih tzu is not able because of the heat to go for our usual 6 block 2x a day walk, because the heat burns his paws. therefore walk are short and done at 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. He is being very difficult in drinking water, refusing to do so, except for small drinks several times a day. He also appears to be constipated, straining to poop and then its small and dark (not black or sticky). He gets fresh cooked chicken, fresh veggies, peas, carrots, pumpkin (a t spoonfull, 2x a day, plus a 1/2 t of coconut oil mixed with his science diet small breed lamb and barley dry dog food(approx 1/2 c) 2x a day. He eats most of it and if not finished I remove and discard. He is sleeping a lot more than usual, but will play tug of war or chase the toy with me every day several times a day. What can I do to help his constipation, and get him to drink more water?
