Definitely have it checked out by your vet. It could abscess and might need to be pulled. Generally for my dogs if it's a smaller tooth I'll just have them pull it, but if it's a big canine or something then I'll look into a root canal.

Let us know!

Wow. We (our rescue) had a parvo pup and treated him at home. Saved roughly $500.00. He pulled through just fine, we did bring him and get meds from the vet but we treated him with the meds at home... Maybe the foster parents weren't comfortable providing that kind of care themselves? There are som...

I would assume the bad poo was from the dietary indiscretion rather than the zylitol. Of course, to be sure you'd need some blood drawn, but if it were my dog I'd watch him like a hawk and go the vet immediately if there are any changes.

Sometimes yogurt can have the opposite effect and cause gas. It helps Patrick's gas (there's nothing worse than a boxer butt!) but it makes Doogie's gas worse. *shrug*

Being all white can genetically pre-dispose lots of differnet types of animals to various congenital diseases. Some all white animals do just fine, but they're usually the exception to the rule. All white animals can have auto-immune disorders, seizures, skin cancers....the list goes on. The BBQ pig...

Jack is all white, right? Sometimes right around his age is when young dogs start showing symptoms of epilepsy. It's not uncommon to spike a fever during a seizure and his being all while would put him more at risk.

Did they do lab work at all?

Yeah, they sell Aloe Vera juice as a supplement for dogs and people. I've used it for years. I've never heard of any toxicity issues.

Do you have a link?

I've heard of microship migrating before, but never to the ear. Usually it migrates to the shoulder or upper leg.
