EVERYTHING about this situation could have been avoided. At my hospital, i'm the 'brave or stupid' vet tech. You know why i've got that name? because im the first one to reason with a scared animal that others think is going to eat them. IF YOU THINK IT WILL, IT WILL. So, this situation should have ...

Usually the infustion is with Animax for infections, not a normal treatment (at least not at our hospital) Difference between a fart and anals? Brown Fluid. Anals leave some brownish fluid behind. (marley does is sometimes) Cats and dogs can do this when they get stressed, and often as Ruff said, wh...

i've actually never seen this, although i do work as a tech, but i can say that this looks really painful. Boxers are known for cancer, and it's a horrible horrible breed predisposition. Sounds like she's got a good vet if they're being honest. If you can get me information on the specific type of c...

Is there anything you can do for swollen anal glands? I know you can have them supressed by the vet but what about prevention? How do you prevent swollen anal glands? She-rah has had this problem for quite some time. The vet expresses them occasionally but I would like to see this problem gone fore...

oh what a mess. ::hugs:: Definetly keep her hydrated, get on your vet.. don't be scared to bug them- sounds like you aren't. She really should be in the hospital at this point on IVF and having her checked regularly. Things sound like they are already getting worse, so it might prevent anything else...

Thank you for the concern. :) I love this forum. I feel like we have exhausted a lot of (if not most/all) conventional options. I'm sick of medicating her all the time with stuff that hurts her body and doesn't help her allergies, you know? :( Poor baby Sidda. Anyway, I have not looked around for a...

Other options: - Warm salt water - Hydrogen Peroxide soaked bread or mix with PButter Poison control recommends having the dog with a full stomach to help the food come up, so bulk feed some bread. Also, if a sharp object is eaten (okay, it's christmas, so anything on your tree) bulk feed with bread...

A bath is good, but you're only fixing it short term, not getting to the real problem. just wondering if i can help with any of that..... :)) :)) :)) We've been dealing with this issue for years now.

Not sure where you live, but there is something called "Care Credit". If (i think you do) work at a hospital you should have information on it. It's basically a credit card for people in your situation where you can actually charge it and pay it off interest free. Good luck with everything...

Often with allergies, the first thing a vet will recommend is a diet change. They are often allergic to a specific protein ie: chicken/beef. When you eliminate that source of protein magically their chronic ear infections, lumpy and itchy skin goes away. To do a food trial you need to find a differe...

it can def be from the injection they gave her, it could be a small localized reaction. We tell people where we give injections so they know what site might have a bump for a few days. I would recommend calling the vet and asking where they gave the injection, they SHOULD have made a note. I know ma...

I hate to break it to you, but that's not the only reason you "shouldn't have gotten one". Pit bulls are horribly addictive. Soon, you'll find yourself here on the forum at all hours of the day and night. Your wardrobe will begin to consist of shirts from CafePress stating "Blame the...
