Re: Raw skin between toes

MissKiwi if you see this, the vet told me that a food allergy is still possible, and that if the treatments we are doing now don't help then we have to do a food trial...but I am wondering if steroids are an option for him once the infection is clear? He has hair loss on his shoulder from scratching...

Re: GRAPES -- how urgent is eating four grapes?

it could or could not be life threatening each dog has a differnt level of tolerance to grapes/raisens (woudln't chance it with puppies)


This is definitely the case, not something I would risk either, hope it all works out ok

Re: Raw skin between toes

JD has pyoderma on his inguinal area, so he will be on cephalexin for 2 weeks, and we will be starting benadryl as well since he has been so itchy

Is it still ok to soak his feet? Will the epsom salt burn at all?

Re: rescued puppy diagnosed with PARVO

When Maya had parvo she turned around at about a week, she was in pretty bad shape up til that point, we thought we were going to lose her...but once she started eating it was all positive steps from there. I'm so happy for the little guy!

Re: Pain medicine/hip dysplasia/bad behavior

I worked for an ortho specialist for 2 years and have never seen a hip that bad...poor thing! Hope he can have his surgery soon! I don't understand why they decided no tramadol now? An anti-inflammatory is great, but it's not the same as a pain reliever...

Raw skin between toes

So I know there are multiple threads about allergies, itchy feet and so on...and JD has these problems as well...now he is licking his feet raw, but the problem is he will not let me touch his feet for any reason, he never has. I'm taking him in to clip his nails soon, since we have to sedate him to...

Re: kambria is looking skinny

Both of mine went through skinny stages, usually right after they were particularly chubby lol, they would just sprout up a few inches and look thin...but if you are concerned, give the vet a call...it can't hurt

Re: Possible hip problem? Curious to see what others think

JD had this happening at 6 months old, we had preliminary xrays done, and an ortho exam, but they were not Penn hip xrays...the resident and I just did them casually, but the same principles and techniques were applied. He was diagnosed with mild hip dysplasia, but I was told it was not bad enough t...

Re: Prayers for Reno!

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother, my thoughts are with you. Did they do an aspirate of the lump and look at it under the microscope? It's my understanding that if it was serious they would most likely see bad cells under the scope. I know how hard it is not to worry, but it would seem our...

Re: Prayers for Reno!

I would think histiocytoma, which are benign. "a histiocytoma is "a benign skin tumor, usually seen in young dogs, that often spontaneously regresses without treatment." " They are removing it most likely because it COULD be a mast cell tumor- though not likely. JD had one at abo...

Re: Cruz Diagnosed with Extreme Hip Dysplasia

I will just say a few things. The FHO- which is what you spoke about in your first post, was done on an APBT who full grown is about 63 lbs. A few things about this I wanted to tell you, Lexus has very good use of the leg, considering that my friend has done nothing along the lines of PT with her to...

Re: Nail Trimming

I can't comment on the cost, it depends on what they are sedated with, how long it takes, and the particular vet. Jd has to have his done periodically, and at that point we usually do nails, ears, and anal glands, while he is sedated with dormitor, that way we can wake him up as soon as we are done....
