Re: Anal gland question

If your dog is expressing the anal glands on his own naturally, don't mess with them. Once you start manually expressing the glands (on a regular basis) you will have to continue manually expressing the glands. It's one those "if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it" kind of things. A dog *...

Re: Question: Fecal incontinence in a senile dog.

I would have a fecal test done to rule out a parasite that could be causing it first.

Re: any vets online? penis dripping blood when excited.(HELP

I would still strongly recommend a urine test. Ask your vet if you can just bring one in to be ran without an appointment. Since you were there recently, they may do the test and only request to see the dog if it shows a problem. Since the "bleeding" continued so long while being treated, ...

Re: My dog has turned into a cow. need help

Any time a dog has a sudden change in behavior, it is best to see the vet to rule out medical issues. If your dog was previously a voracious eater and is suddenly turning her nose up at food, a trip to the vet is in order... asap. Also, a healthy dog will not starve themself. Stop giving in and addi...

Re: Dog poops way too much

I would also consider a fecal culture, or at least ask your vet about it. We have been seeing some symptomatic cases of cryptosporidium and campylobacter at my clinic. This ^ We have too, and most times we were able to find it on an in house fecal smear test (a little different from a regular fecal...

Re: Ear infection article...

I did like the prevention tips and I did like that it addresses ear infections as a secondary problem. I shudder at the thought of an average owner tryingto perform an ear flush at home though. I've done some flushes at work and I know how hard it is to do correctly. And I totally agree with you Mis...

Re: wobblers syndrome

While you are saving for an MRI, seriously consider having him tested for Ataxia. The test is $150 and done through OptiGen.

Re: Foreign Body Removal...#2

You should talk to the vet about installing a zipper in his belly!

But seriously, glad to hear he is doing well and that you took him in at the first sign of a problem. You would be surprised at how many people wait until their pet is so far gone/sick to seek treatment.

Re: Product ideas needed to make my dog stop licking her wou

Bigger E-collar.
Depending on which leg and the location of the lick granuloma, you could try a different type of e-collar.
A couple of drops of tabasco or hot sauce on the bandage... not on any skin though.

Re: Favorite Names that are NOT over used!

I just named a kitty brought in by animal control Toast. :) The kitten didn't like the name Pancake, so IT jokingly called her French Toast and she ran over and rubbed on the cage bars.

Re: Lots of face scratching.....

well the verdict is an ear infection, and possibly something with a tooth. her ears are very red (even I could see that!) and have lots of bacteria going on in them, so we have a flush, drops, and prednazone for the inflammation. they said that if she keeps scratching at her *face* a lot, especiall...

Ear infections will cause the itchy and painful ears too. It's best to see a vet to determine the best course of tre...
