I think a vet visit is in order. He's not a senior yet but he's getting to the age when things can go haywire. Drinking more and peeing more can be also kidney or Cushing's. I mean, don't worry yourself sick but definitely bring this all up at a vet visit. Thank you. I was thinking yesterday that I...

scaley skin

I have an allergy dog. I am used to the number of different skin issues that he developes as a result. This is a new one that I have not seen before. It started as peeling skin. It looked like he had a sunburn that was peeling, but he hadn't spent enough time in the sun for that to be the case. It w...

I think Kirkland is specifically a Costco brand, but I'm not positive. You and your uncle could always go 1/2 and 1/2 renewing the card? Just a thought if it's something you'd like to continue to feed and isn't sold anywhere else. Or do you have a friend w/ membership? It is Costco only. Adult food...

Cephalexin is pretty commonly prescribed for skin infections. yeah I know, it was just a thought for the poor infected boy. Cephalexin is a commonly prescribed drug for alot of infections, not just skin. It would be like ampicillin in humans. It's fairly safe with low side effects, easy on the tumm...

I feed the venison, and have no issues. I have noticed a difference in color and smell occasionally and have had no issues with my allergy dog. I know they don't use dyes so color variation is normal, and with season changes, maybe their meat sources vari resulting in smell changes? not sure on that...

Re: interesting visit to new vet

well I have to say that I was disappointed yesterday. I took both dogs in. I do have to say that part of the confusion may have been taking both dogs in at the same time and it was our 1st visit. 1st bad sign- vet tech kept calling Baylee a good boy while taking her temperature. I guess maybe she j...

Did the vet do an x-ray, or a manipulation of the jaw? I was just questioning because when Bertha tore her leg up they thought soft tissue at first as well because the x-ray didn't show anything, and she was partial weight bearing, full weight bearing when intense on something. She was completely bl...

nutro

I heard on the news that I think 6 dogs died and large number are reported ill, and owners are blaming Nutro and Nutro Max.... FDA has tested and found no toxins, and the makers of Nutro say nothing is wrong with their food. I personally know of 1 case of a dog with vomiting and diarrea, that the ve...

Hmm... ok, I think I remember my vet saying that if they did the surgery, there was a chance the hematoma could reaccur prior to the ear finishing healing, but beyond that there was no increased risk? :dunno: but something to ask in addition.

Are you going to be showing her? How bad are the hematoma's? Has the vet given you a reason as to why she is getting them? My allergy boy gets out of control every once in awhile (his allergies that is). When they do, his scratching can cause hematoma's in his ears. He has had some that are realllll...

At least that is somewhat understandable! When was the last time someone asked if your husband had his period yet? :bully:
