Some of the dog questions and concerns already addressed by the veterinary Experts on JustAnswer include:


  • My dog scratches the carpet and bed. I think she is grooming her nails. What should I do?
  • I have a 12 year old dog who has been throwing up for the past two weeks, with diarrhea as well.
  • My dog is pacing all night and most of the day. He has an urgency to have bowel movements when he's outside.
  • My dog has been moving slowly and stiffly, and is drinking more water than usual. It seems to come and go.
  • I gave my puppy flea spray, and she was drooling for a couple of minutes afterward. Is she going to be okay?
