My Dog Is Acting Strange And We Do Not Have A 24 Hour Vet...?
My Dog Is Acting Strange And We Do Not Have A 24 Hour Vet...?
So... My Dog Is Acting A Bit Strange Tonight. Normally I'D Take Her To The Vet, But It'S Late And We Do Not Have A 24 Hour Vet, So I Turn To The World Of Yahooanswers.
Her Symptoms Include Excessive Thirst And A Dull Coat. She Whines When I Touch Her Sides, But I Do Not See Physical Issues To Deal With. The Thing That Bothers Me The Most Is That She Is Backing Up And Circling Off To The Left Almost Like She Can'T Help Herself.
My Question To All Of You Is This, What Do You Think May Be Wrong With Her?
I am not a vet but I do know that excessive thirst and neurological signs like the backing up and circling are symptoms of a poison in your dogs system Possibly antifreeze?
If you feel that your dog has gotten into antifreeze, or a cleaning product that contains ethylene glycol, which turns into crystals in your dog's kidney, resulting in acute kidney failure and sometimes even death. In fact, as little as a tablespoon can be deadly. To make matters worse, antifreeze also tastes sweet to dogs....
Call the Animal Poison Control Hot line at (800) 548-2423.You'll need a credit card number, but the hot line will give you lots of valuable information, and will let you know if veterinarian care is needed.

A few licks of Bubble bath also is not considered poisonous, however it may give her a bit of a tummy ache.

Vomiting Dog After Surgery....?
My Chihuahua Had Her Teeth Cleaned And Was Fixed On Thurs. Came Home Yesterday, Pretty Much Laid Around All Day. Last Night Started Vomiting. She Will Drink Water, But Vomits It Back Up. Not Eating Anything. We Have No Local Vet On Call And They Are Referring Us 100 Miles Away Which Is Impossible To Do. Any Suggestions. Thanks.
Its usually just due to the anesthetic ... when they have surgery they have to be fasted so when you take the dog home most people try to feed them rigth away, and the mixture of an empty stomach and anesthetic drugs usually leads to vomiting. Some dogs also have reactions to the sedatives that are used especially if morphine is used. Also the car ride and motion makes them vomit. She will for the first day and possibly the next be very lethargic b/c they know they need bed rest (just like you if you had surgery) When you do offer them food and water you need to do it in small amounts. It can take her up to 2 days before she wants to eat, if thats the case and she doesnt eat after the 2nd day then you need to call the vet. but as for the vomiting right now as odd as it sounds it can be normal.
Has Anyone'S Dog Had Surgery For Elbow Dyslplasia?
Our Black Lab Mix Is Scheduled To Have Surgery For Elbow Dysplasia On 3/20. He Is Approximately 10 Months Old And We Rescued Him In Nov. 2006. He Was Not Fed Or Treated Properly Up Until We Took Him. He Weighed About 45 Pounds In Nov. And He Now Weighs Around 80 Pounds. He'S Very Healthy Other Than The Elbow Problem. I'M Just Curious About What To Expect After The Surgery From Someone Who Has Had Experience With This Situation.
My dog had elbow surgey for an Ununited anconeal process.
(he broke off the tip of his elbow) he was not supposed to move really at all so I had to crate him for 4 to 5 months. I would come home from work at lunch, put a harness on him and carry him out to pee & poop and then back in the crate until I got home. It was a hassle because when I was at home, he would cry & cry to get out so I bought one of those portalbe kennels & set it up in my living room so when I was at home, he would not be so confined and I could sit with him & hold is teething bone while I was watching TV..
You should be fine. If you have someone to help you out, the recovery will be easier for you.
Is your vet an orthopedic specialist? I also have a pitbull that has severe hip diysplasia. She was 6 months old when the vet told us this. I was told that her hips were so bad that by the time she was 3 years old should would be pretty much crippled and would not be able to walk. They wanted me to do a bi-lateleral hip something and I could not afford the cost of this. ($6000.00) so, I took my chances...
One of my friends told me about a food supplement called hip health. I have been adding this to all my dogs food for the past 10 years and it really, really, really has helped my dogs.
My pitbull just turned 11 years old in febuary and to this day, I still come home to her being lazy & sleeping on my bed. (Meaning with the worst hips a dog could have, she can still jump 3 feet high & make me mad every day cause she rests her head on my pillow.
As long as you trust that you Vet is doing the right thing for your dog, than the aftercare is not such a big deal.
Email me if you have any questions. It is very late for me so I had to make this short.
Should I Take My Dog To The Vet For Eating Stuffed Animals?
I Have A 6 Pound Chihuahua Maltese And She'S Been Doing It For Over A Year, Probably Over Two; She'Ll Get Little Stuffed Animals, Play With Them And Rip Out The Stuffing, Then Gnaw On The Fabric. She Sometimes Bites Pieces Off And Swallows Them, But When I See Her Do That I'Ll Take The Toy Away And She Gets In Trouble. I Saw An Article The Other Day That Talked About Intestinal Blockage In Dogs That Eat Foreign Objects And I Got Scared So I Looked Up The Symptoms For It And She Has None Of Them. She Eats Normally, She Runs Around All The Time, She'S Very Hyper, Normal Bowel Movements. The Only Thing I'Ve Seen Is That She Throws Up More Than My Other Chihuahua And Sometimes After Drinking A Lot Of Water She'Ll Cough It Up. Sometimes I Do Find Little Pieces Of The Animals In Her Poop, But She Doesn'T Have Any Trouble Going. She Doesn'T Eat The Eyes, I Always Cut Them Out Before I Give Them To Her, Or The Stuffing. Just The Fabric.
Should I Take Her To The Vet To Get Checked? We'Re Very Tight For Money Right Now, Our Income Has Dropped Over $1,000 Monthly, But I'M Very Scared That There Might Be Something Wrong And Fear That If I Don'T Get Her At Least A Check Up Something Bad Could Happen. And When I Do Take Her For Her Routine Check Ups, The Vet Doesn'T Find Anything Wrong With Her. She'S Been Doing It For A Long Time, So I Don'T Know If I Should Be Worried So Much.
Also, Are There Any Organizations That Will Help With Vet Bills? I Live In California.
You are right to be concerned! But your dog doesn't have an intestinal obstruction and doesn't need to be seen right now. However, the majority of cases I see that do have an intestinal blockage have a history like your dog's. They have been known to eat things and swallow things they shouldn't be. Some of them get away with it for years. I had one client who told me she would find her dog's toys out in the yard in piles of poop. It's amazing how large of an object a dog can pass. But eventually something is going to get stuck.
When a dog develops an obstruction, they usually will start vomiting. They have a hard time keeping food down or maybe won't have any appetite at all. They become depressed. Depending on how long it has been going on, they may also stop defecating, or develop diarrhea. It comes on pretty fast, and progresses pretty fast. Depending on where the blockage is and whether it a complete or partial blockage, they may or may not be able to drink or hold water down. Dehydration is common.
Having a GI obstruction is a serious condition and can be fatal. With early treatment, usually these animals do just fine. But surgery or endoscopy can be expensive.
I recommend that you find only toys that you dog can't tear apart. I also recommend putting some money aside each month and build up a dog-care savings account. You can use this for annual exams and vaccines, and god forbid if your dog ever does develop a GI obstruction you will have the money to treat the dog. Many dogs have been euthanized after developing a GI obstruction when the owner couldn't afford the cost to treat the dog.
Hope this helps.
I Want To Become A Vet For Underwater/Marine Animals?
If I Want To Work With Animals That Live Underwater, Would I Be Able To With Them At Places Like Seaworld? As One Of The Vetenarians There?
I'Ve Always Loved Seaworld And Aquatic Animals And I Just Wonder If Its Possible To Have A Job Position As A Vet There?
I can think that if you REALLY want to get into it the best collage you should probbably go to it A&M down in Corpus Christie (Texas). They have a collage that speciaizes in Marine life but as for getting a job there, yes its possible. It will probbably take a lot of work, because you'll have to work you're way up. The care of the animals will be a very serious job. Every one of those animals are worth a TON of money, considering how many mariene animals are endangered nowadays. But of course, every place with animals has to have a vet. Espically a place with exoctic animals.
