Get a good topical flea medication from the vet. I like to use frontline plus. The initial cost may be expensive, but you'll far surpass that cost by buying that flea shampoo that does next to nothing. Frontline plus will kill all the adult fleas and protect against new invaders for a month. It also...

She seems pretty bad. She's already 6 years old and she has quite a grind in her hips, especially her right. Both hips are quite inflamed. If she was diagnosed younger, then I could've helped slow he degeneration more. She just never showed any of the signs before. She swivels her hips and bunny hop...

bump? :oops:

I went ahead and got the Black Forest formula. She's running out of food and I needed some left over so I can make the switch gradual.

Managing Hip Dysplasia and diet (long)

My 5 year old siberian husky Nadiya has hip dysplasia. It seems to be pretty mild at this point, she has some inflammation and its being treated with supplements and physical therapy. She does have a grind in her legs. While she's not extremely overweight, she needs to lose a few pounds. She's right...

I'm so sorry. :frown: He really didn't seem that bad off from what you're describing. This sucks.

So it is parvo. Is he giving oral metronidazole? With him vomiting it should be an injectable. You don't want him vomiting it back up. Honestly, if it was my dog I would have him stay AT THE HOSPITAL, even if I don't have the money up front. If they are willing to work with you on payment this is a ...

Eh I'm just "armchair quarterbacking" and i don't even have medical training, so it's even less accurate. LOL! I don't have any formal training either, I've been a kennel assistant almost 2 years at the clinic I work at, and I deal with parvo firsthand. Not pretty. The worst case I rememb...

Oh it's certainly a possibility. I re-read the first post and it didn't indicate an age. I don't want to shoot down anyone's theories. :thumbsup: I have seen parvo quite a few times in older puppies like 7 to 12 months that haven't been vaccinated. They tend to get it really bad for some reason. Par...

I'm not an expert, but I think his abdomen looks really distended in the first picture, almost like he's bloated.

Dogs CAN get parvo even if they have had all their shots, and even as adults. Not eating, the trots and being lethargic are some symptoms that parvo will have. Is he vomiting at all? Bloat will do the same thing, both can only be treatable by a vet, IMO. Toby ate mushrooms and regurgitated all food...

Yeah... that sounds about normal, actually. I've had a dog go into heat at 6 months, but we kept her inside and spayed her right after.
