I have a 6 year old Australian labradoodle. For the past 6 months he has been scratching and licking his paws. I changed his food to grain free and administered Benadryl for a few days. He got better but after stopping the Benadryl it seems that the food change hasn't made much difference. He is scratching again and has some redness and small welts and on his lower back. I gave him a bath today and applied cortisone cream and started the Benadryl again

My 130 pound Japanese tosa dog has been diagnosed with a

My 130 pound Japanese tosa dog has been diagnosed with a perineal hernia. I'm from West Virginia & was wondering how much surgery to get it repaired would be? IJA: It's only $5. I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with I?Customer: His hernia is a decent size, he's having trouble using the restroom and he limps as he walks. He has an exam appointment Monday but I don't want to wait that long to find out the cost of surgery. We took him to one vet and they said to feed him green beans & pumpkin. I just called that same vet and they now said that the only thing that will work is surgery. Any idea how much it will cost in Ohio or West Virginia?JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.Customer: Thank you. & also is 12 years for a dog to old to go through surgery? One vet said yes, but another said that they recommend it.JA: Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: No, I can do that. If there is then what does that mean?JA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about that?Customer: That's all right now. How long will it be until the veterinarian will get back with me?
