I’ve had my foster dog for about a year now and the only area where I haven’t been able to make progress with him is at the vet’s office. He’s a large pit mix, about 77lbs, so since he’s big and scared we have to sedate him for anything more than a routine check up. I take him to vet’s office for little visits so that he gets to know the staff and the smells there, and he’s fine in the waiting room and with staff. He only becomes anixious when we’re back in the room with the vet. Does anyone have any helpful hints, training experience or games that we can play to get him less anixious or even to the point where we don’t have to completely sedate him? Thank you!

Hi, I took my dog Rose to the vet last Saturday because I woke up and she was bleading from her but. Vet said she was having trouble going and anal glands were bleeding. I have had her on an antibiotic and something for pain for a week along with an external liquid to apply to her butt. Yesterday she was walking around with her tail between her legs and went out a few times but don’t think she was able to poop. this morning she won’t get out of bed and won’t eat. I did sprinkle a little bit of metamucil on her food yesterday. Is there something else I can do to help her go or what else can be wrong with her. She is around 13 years old or so. Beagle 20 lbs…

Hello! I have a 4 1/2 year old Pug-Daphne. She has had problems with ear infections-yeast infection. Her underbelly gets sweaty at times, which causes the yeast. She recently had a breakout of a yeast rash all over underside including her armpits. I put Nystatin powder and it went away. How can I keep her from sweating so much and licking? Is it characteristic trait for Pugs? Thank You.
I need to purchase my pack their heartworm and flea/tick medications again (I have 5 dogs). I usually keep them on flea/tick 8-9 months per year and heartworm all year round. However, with all these new products (Advantage Multi, Sentinel, etc), I was wondering which you would recommend… My past vet had them on Frontline Plus and Heartgard Plus but my new vet says Interceptor is better….. Obviously with 5 dogs, Heartgard Plus makes my wallet slightly happier but I want what’s best for my guys… Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much!
