My guy has a collapsing trachea & he takes Temaril-P. The last few days the spasm/coughing is happening much more. He sleeps a bit, then wakes up & struggles to breath. He is eating & pooping fine. I have some Theophyline for him & wasn't sure if it would help, or what could help calm him.JA: 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 and age?Customer: Cruiser, about 20. Silky yorky about 13 lbsJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Cruiser?Customer: He has kidney disease, we discovered after his eye dr noticed some changes in his eyes & asked to have him checked. We've changed he diet & although he pees more often, there are no other noticeable signs. He hasn't lost weight, he doesn't vomit. But the coughing/spasms are difficult because they go on & on.

This has happened about four times over the past three

Hi--this has happened about four times over the past three months. I will go to pick him up from doggie daycare, where he associates with other dogs (but he's 7 so he isn't really romping) and he will run to the fence all excited and happy when I turn into the road, but when by the time they bring him out to me (a matter of a couple of minutes) he is acting like he is having trouble breathing or on the verge of heart failure, and walking oddly. today he was actually leaning sideways as he was walking out. He recovers very quickly after he gets in the car. I have had him on a diet to lose weight (successful) but this started before the change in his food. I will take him to our vet next week--our luck on these episodes the vet's office has been closed for lunch or whatever.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: My dog is a mixed breed with some pit bull and blue heeler in him, weighs about 80 pounds or less now that he's lost weight. We hike or go to doggie daycare every day.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Emmie (Emerson) age 7JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Emmie?Customer: He's a very stoic dog! THat

For the past week my dog has been vomiting her food that's

Hi! For the past week my dog has been vomiting her food that's been digested. It usually happens late at night or in the early mornings. I've tried fasting and then introducing boiled chicken & Brown rice but it doesn't ever fully digest it. The vomit has a foul oder and today she's been throwing up on an empty stomach, refuses to eat, and is becoming lethargic.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 your dog?Customer: She has bowel movements but they've steadily decreased to just small bouts of soft diarrhea like stool over the past 24hrs

My 12 lb miniature schnauzer had part of the footpad and 1

My 12 lb miniature schnauzer had part of the footpad and 1 toe removed 5 days ago. Today we removed the bandaging for the first time and there was a lot of bleeding initially and she began pulling the fur with her teeth and crying (I believe in pain). We purchased a protective collar and put it on her so she could not reach it but she is panting and very agitated. We have a few Vetprofen and have been giving her 1/2 caplet twice daily. Can I increase the dosage for her pain?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 dog?Customer: She is nearly 14 and otherwise in good health
