Re: Illness? Ingested Poison?

do you have any ticks there or has she been in any areas with ticks? the head/leg thing an elevated liver can be signs of Rocky Mountian Spotted Fever (a tick disease???) Now I'm really starting to suspect a tick issue. We were up in Oregon and Washington for a week, got back on 9/26. I wonder if t...

Re: Illness? Ingested Poison?

Updates?? The shivering is pain. Usually. I'm starting to think ear infection too or something in her ear- if it was a molar she's be eating funny but if the vet hasn't checked her teeth, have them check. How's Emma doin? Hope she's feelin better! Thanks guys for the concern. I just dropped her off...

Re: Illness? Ingested Poison?

I spoke too soon. She IS shivering again now. Not constantly, but every now and then she'll have a little shiver. She is sitting by the window though, but it's not exactly winter here. But she did just gobble up two Milkbone biscuits when I gave them to her. So she has an appetite still, I hope that...

Re: Illness? Ingested Poison?

Hmm, how much of that grass that msvette identified as fountain grass did she manage to eat? How dry is the grass? I don't think fountain grass is as hard as some other grasses but if the seed casing (awn) is really dry and stiff, it could act like a foxtail and be digging into her internally somew...

I'm not sure. I just know she did "blood tests" and took a urine sample. I don't know if blood sugar is included when they run standard blood tests, but I don't recall the vet specifically saying anything about blood sugar.

Re: Illness? Ingested Poison?

The walking sideways would alarm me more than anything...could there be pesticides on the plants she ingested? Do you have tick illnesses there? Sorry, I didn't describe it very well, it wasn't exactly like she was walking sideways. It was more like her head was a little tilted and she walked light...

Illness? Ingested Poison?

Any thoughts on what may be ailing Emma? (Emma is about 3 years old, spayed female). I came home today for lunch and she was fine. Then when I got home from work about 5 hours later, she greeted me at the door super slowly and with a little whimper. She started to walk away very slowly and a little ...

Re: Kirkland kibble/ Bladder Infection?

Hmmm... I'm a vet, and I fed my dog Kirkland for a while. Quality control is often iffy with off-brands because you don't know where or how they are produced... but they could also be the exact same food as a different brand with cheaper packaging and less advertising. The only way to know is to as...

Re: Kirkland kibble/ Bladder Infection?

I could be wrong, but I highly doubt the food change caused a bladder infection. FYI...female dogs do mark ;) Good to hear, thanks for the feedback FBODGRL. I hope you're right and the UTI occuring at the same time as the food change was just odd timing. She does pee in ivy bushes sometimes, so I'm...

Kirkland kibble/ Bladder Infection?

I’ve been reading through the many threads on foods, allergies, etc etc. and am still unable to figure out what is best for my dog. I was feeding her Natural Balance Duck & Potato kibble, but after so many bouts of itchy skin I decided to try a new food. After reading all of the good reviews her...

Re: Meet Maggie in Philly

Just an update--- I have my fingers crossed, but I have a potential adopter interested in Maggie!!! From the pre-screening application he seems like a good home. I just got his information and have sent an email to reach out so he can meet Maggie (and be scrutinized by me!!). I really hope he's as ...

Re: Meet Maggie in Philly

Good luck with Maggie. It sounds like you're doing a great job working with her until you find a home. She's lucky to have you. Looking forward to pics- black and white ones are super cute!

Thanks Leslie. That's sort of what I felt, since she was acting fine otherwise, it was probably not a big concern. However tonight on our walk she had a little coughing fit. Just once and not since, but to be on the safe side I'm taking her in to the vet tomorrow.

Thanks for your feedback.
