Re: Nerve Sheath Tumor.

If bloodwork and xrays check out, are they hoping to do a lumpectomy?

Re: Bloody diarrhea, raw diet, please help!

Bloody stool would warrant a trip to the vet with my dog. Speaking from someone who has dealt with both HGE (haemorrhagic gastroenteritis) and pancreatitis in my old dog, it's not something I would try and treat at home personally.

Re: Help...Licking issue, getting worst.

Only licking that one spot? Personally I would clear out medical first, get a checkup and possibly xray done of the area. This. And put an e-collar (the cone, not the electrical collar) on her to prevent her from licking. http://www.petmd.com/dog/general-health/evr_dg_acral_lick_granuloma_a_dermato...

Re: Vaccination protocol

Erin, that's insane. And really disappointing. Regardless of whether they heard differently from another vet, they should be keeping up to date with current research and recommendations. I'd be leaving too, but not before making sure they understand why.

Re: Vaccination protocol

Our clinic follows AAHA protocol, so puppy series, one year boosters, then every three years for rabies/DAP. Every six months/yearly for bordetella as required and lepto yearly. There is an incentive to try and keep people coming in yearly, but not as a money-grab as some people argue. For one, laws...

Poor guy :(

When Obi has a flare up of cauda equina, it presents like hind leg pain. So it certainly could be neck pain?

Re: Urinary trouble

Gosh, no advice but I am sorry you're struggling with this. It's frustrating when they have an obvious issue but you can't figure out what it is.

Re: Bulbus Glandis or...?

They almost look to me like tiny specs of dried blood. Like I said, when I adopted him, I bathed him right away and they instantly disappeared. I have no idea really. Next time I see one, I will wet it and see if it smears reddish brown. He's fine now though. Whatever those lumps were are gone. He'...

Re: Bulbus Glandis or...?

Oh, no offensive taken and I didn't mean to imply I thought you were being neglectful. I just wanted to reassure you that it's always right to take your pet in if you're concerned. As for the black dots, my old lady used to get those quite often too. They weren't harmful so I always just left them a...
