How to care for a doggie staph infection?

Buster and Belle have been struggling with allergies really bad this year. (but then again, who isn't?) Anyway, Monday afternoon I saw a bald spot about the size of a quarter on Buster's neck but it seemed like a regular hot spot (not that he has ever had it that bad before). Anyway, yesterday morni...

Re: need answers

Wow, I'm so sorry for your loss. I also suggest a necropsy. That's the only accurate way to get an answer like that.

So, usually it's months between refills for the Deramaxx.

Re: Vet Etiquette advice needed

Hmmm, I never thought about asking about price matching and they've never offered it. I'll ask them about it next time because it's a win-win. They still profit from at least a little sale vs. losing all of the sale and I save money either way! I guess I never really thought about the time it takes ...

Vet Etiquette advice needed

I'm not sure if this should be in the medical section because it talks about the vet but i don't think this is an actual medical question. If this is in the wrong section, please relocate it. Sorry this is so long but I wanted to lay out all the facts before I ask for advice. To start, I've been goi...

Re: Tivoli

I don't know much about rescuing and fostering but since it sounds like that part of Oregon isn't too crazy about Pit Bulls, would it be better for him in regards to getting more potential adopters and keeping him warm if we were able to get him transferred to the Oregon Humane Society in Portland o...

Re: Are these seizures?

Thanks for the info guys! I noticed most of the time when she does it she's just waking up or has been awake for a short period of time. I'm hoping it's nothing major as she already has a heart problem and is on watch for Cushing's Disease and she's only 5 (turning 5 in January). I'll definitely sta...

Re: Belle needs your thoughts and prayers

Thanks for checking guys! She is doing much better and seems to be about 60% better. Her face is more relaxed now which was another big sign she wasn't feeling well. Last night she slept in the bed so she's wants to be around people more. She didn't throw up again after Thursday but when she would e...

Are these seizures?

Every now and then, which is becoming a little more frequent recently, Belle will be laying down and suddenly kick her legs out straight and do a quick bark. She then just lays there not moving, looking around for a few more seconds. For the first few seconds after she barks and twitches or whatever...

Re: Belle needs your thoughts and prayers

Thanks everyone! I think they're working! Belle drank a little bit of water around 3, 4 and 5 and has kept it down. She still appears to be feeling sick to her stomach because she burps and licks her lips when initiating movement. She just had a 1/2cup of rice and chicken breast. If she keeps it dow...

Re: Belle needs your thoughts and prayers

I ended up calling the vet at 1:00AM because she was in obvious pain. When she wasn't trembling she was breathing really fast or panting. He said to just let her be until the morning because pain meds might make her even more sick. She didn't want to be around anyone and especially didn't want to be...

Re: Belle needs your thoughts and prayers

I don't think the shots were for pain. The shots she was given was an antibiotic, Cerenia and Famotidine. Since she didn't have a confirmed positive test today they are treating just the sick stomach until they get the other results tomorrow. Do they only want her to stay in the hospital because the...

Re: Belle needs your thoughts and prayers

Thank you so much everyone. I mean it from the bottom of my heart. She is my baby girl, my life and I don't know how well I would take it if something really bad was wrong with her. Earlier I thought she was laying peacefully but then realized she was shivering. Just before we left the vet I thought...

Belle needs your thoughts and prayers

I don't normally post stuff about my dogs' health but Belle might be in bad shape. In October we found she has an enlarged heart and a heart murmur. When they were doing all the tests, they found something elevated in her liver that is a warning sign of Cushings Disease. For the past few days Belle ...
