Re: Cat with open sores on face - graphic photos

I would not assume those sores don't hurt just because she is not avoiding rubbing her face on things. Cats rarely show that they are hurting. I had a foster cat who had a claw growing all the way through her paw and she didn't even limp. I bet those are painful. She may be 15, but if she's pretty h...

Re: Gastroparesis: stomach emptying problem

Well, that makes more sense. 10 isn't that old though. Unless your vet recommends against it or there is a cost issue, I would seriously consider going further with procedures.

Re: Gastroparesis: stomach emptying problem

He's been dealing with this since he was 1 but you don't want to do further testing because of his age?

Re: Vomiting Puppy and Clueless Friend....

A different vet. Your friend shouldn't have to know what tests to request. That is the vet's job.

Re: "Danzig" My 6 month old having siezures

Still waiting on results from blood work, but did notice some twitching in his eye and face this eve as he was laying on my lap. He also urinated on me while the twitching, so not sure if it was a seizure lightened up from the day and a half of seizure meds. Just keeping positive thoughts, thanks f...

Re: Trust your Vet to spay or go with the cheapo clinic?

It really depends. I took my Golden to our regular vet, paid $400 and had her stitches pop 2 hours after we picked her up (she had zero activity between the pickup and stitches popping). Where as the rescue I foster for has had 300+ dogs go to one low cost clinic and I have never had nor heard of a...

Re: Trust your Vet to spay or go with the cheapo clinic?

Go to your vet. Cheap spay/neuter resources are best left available for people who could never afford to have it done or wouldn't if it weren't extremely cheap. They'll do a more thorough job at your regular vet because most low cost places don't do bloodwork or pain meds afterwards.

Re: my cat - this is strange - pics

I had a foster cat who had that once but it was accompanied by chin acne. Switching to a stainless steel bowl for him helped a lot.

Dogs don't live long enough for the radiation to effect them like it does us. Radiation thyroid treatment in cats would kill a human but is fine for the cat.

Re: Diahrrea what's causing it??

Its never wrong to get a second opinion. I would video tape your dog in the crate... you might be surprised. If nothing else, you can prove its NOT stress and start considering more invasive testing, like intestinal biopsies. I second this I have taped and found all sorts of interesting behavior qu...

Re: Diahrrea what's causing it??

Have they sent a fecal panel out for more extensive testing? Do you know specifically what parasites they have tested her for? Giardia, Coccidia and the various worms are the most common but there are some uncommon ones that she could have. I recently had a foster kitten test positive for a parasite...

Re: Canned Food

Some canned food is still better than no canned and yeah, cheap canned is better than high quality dry. I'd stick with what you're doing. You could increase the amount of canned food by lowering the quality and that might be better but stick with what you're doing now if you're happy and your cats a...

Re: My Ali (8yr old lab) has knots, possibly lymphoma. Help

Labs are pretty prone to those kind of masses and they are usually benign. She'll probably be just fine.

Re: Giardia/Ghiardia? -_- Natural remedies.. HELP!!

You need metronidazole and/or panacur. To save money you could probably get by with just metronidazole but I prefer to treat with both. They aren't expensive drugs and if you've already paid a vet to look at her, you should be able to call and ask for meds and pick them up. They shouldn't cost anymo...
