Hi there-
It is hard to tell from a photo. Is it an open wound or more like a growth? Either way- your best bet (and probably least expensive option) is to get to the vet sooner rather than later. The longer you wait, the worse it seems to be getting on turn the more expensive the treatment will end up being. Hopefully, if it is a tumor, it is benign or if it isn’t that you have caught it in time.

I’m sorry your cat is in so much pain. Really, you need to get him to a vet… especially since he is in so my pain.

I Found A Spot Under My Male Cats Left Neck Area While Petting Him. He Does …

I found a spot under my male cats left neck area while petting him. He does not seem to be bothered by it but I do see him licking that area. Is this a hot spot? If so, is this something that can be treated over the counter or does this warrant a trip to the vet? I bring him to Jarretsville Vet with Dr. Graf (love you guys!) but if it’s not necessary to bring him on a car ride I would avoid it. Just looking for advice. Thank you so much!

Hello,
I don’t usually see hotspots in cats. And there is a significant amount of hair loss so I am a little worried. I can talk to de graf tomorrow and we can come up with a plan that works for you.
Please call the clinic in the morning to remind me.
Thank you for using pawbly and I will talk to you tomorrow.

My 3 Y/o Lab Has Chronically Had Bad Breath Since He Was About 1 Y/o, No …

My 3 y/o lab has chronically had bad breath since he was about 1 y/o, no matter what food he is on (currently Purino Pro Plan Lamb & Rice). When he licks you, his saliva residue smells really bad, and can actually feel stinging, leading me to worry about the possibility of acid reflux for him that we’ve missed all along. Is there anything we can try with him either OTC or natural supplements for him to address this? Or does this warrant a trip to the vet to address?

If it’s gone on for 2 years and you haven’t gotten it addressed in that time, it’s most likely something that REALLY needs a vet’s involvement. Could be medical, could be dental, but you should call the vet about it.

Cat Unable To Eat Due To Esophagus Constricted

Attached below I have x-rays of my 12 year old cat. He has been having problems eating and breathing for a while. I thought that it was nasal polyps, but Dr. Krista told me that that was most likely not the case. The x-rays taken at his regular vet below show that he has something pinching in the middle of his esophagus. He can only eat a couple licks of watered down food, then walks away with a pained look in his face. I’m asking if anyone has ever had this situation with any other pets before. I will be scheduling an ultrasound at Jarrettsville vet ASAP in order to find out if there is anything that can be done to alleviate his struggling to breathe and eat. We are using transdermal prednisone to help with any inflammation. Also, his recent bloodwork has been great except for his glucose being a little high.

Hello,
I am not sure if you are already a client of jvc. Please call the clinic and ask for an appointment. We can discuss future diagnostics from there. I wish you the best of luck

I Adopted A Barn Cat About 6 Months Ago. She Has Been Doing Well Up Until 2 Days …

I adopted a barn cat about 6 months ago. She has been doing well up until 2 days ago… I noticed she wasn’t eating her favorite food, she’s lost weight and now she is vomiting. Her first vomit was foamy and her second was straight runny wet food.

Has she been to the vet yet to be tested for parasites and other diseases and given her vaccinations? Either way, I would call first thing in the morning and get her in to see the vet. Keep an eye on her this evening- if she stops drinking water you might need to go to the ER. There are so many different things that could be causing, your vet will probably do some blood work. Hope everything is ok!!💛🐾

I would double check her vaccination record then to be safe- and make sure she is not due for any boosters. (Concerned because of the symptoms) I hope it is nothing serious, but being that she is vomiting and you have noticed weight loss, I would definitely err on the side of caution.

My Frenchie has an open PYO. The ER said they can do the emergency surgery for 3,000-5,000 or they can give antibiotics and for me to call my vet tomorrow to see if they can do a spay. I really do not know what to do.

Hello, Your dog should be spayed as soon as possible. Whether you do it there or wait to be seen at your vets is a matter of financial ability and the vets availability. The jarrettsville vet clinic staff is split into teams to try to remain socially distanced during covid. I am not working tomorrow and I am not sure we have enough staff or time available to do the surgery. If it is not possible to have it done at the ER call jvc in the morning and ask them to call me and we will figure out something.… Read more »

Hi, My Cat Was Just Diagnosed With Some Early Signs Of Liver Disease. The Vet Told …

Hi, my cat was just diagnosed with some early signs of liver disease. The vet told me to buy Denamarin tablets and recommend a liver supporting prescription food, either Hill’s i/d or Royal Canin Hepatic Support. When I search for these foods I cannot find anywhere in the US that carries them, they are out of stock or discontinued. The only companies I find that are carrying them are in Europe or New Zealand. Does anyone have any idea of what else I can look for or foods I could make at home to best help my cat without starting a personal international cat food import hobby?

Hello,
Pleee call your vet and ask them to help you get these foods. They are prescription based so that may be why you are having trouble getting them. But. They are widely available in the us. I have both on my shelf right now.

Hello! My Cat Has Been Going To The Vet Constantly, For Coughing, Gaging, Gulping, And Loud …

hello! My cat has been going to the vet constantly, for coughing, gaging, gulping, and loud breathing? noises. The vet examined him under anesthesia and said his throat was just red and irritated and sent him home with some antibiotics and prednisolone. He took it for a while but there were no changes. He mostly does the whole coughing gaging thing when he is exited. His vet can’t seem to figure out what is wrong with him, so i’ve been researching different sicknesses and seeing which ones matched his symptoms. I came across collapsed trachea. This is the only one i’ve seen that matched his symptoms and says it gets worse with excitement. What can be done to diagnose him with a collapsed trachea? I’ve seen that a fluoroscopy would be a good option but the animal hospitals around me don’t have the machinery to do that. There is a high tech specialist vet office about 2 hours from me, but it’s by referral only. Would i still be able to get a proper and correct diagnosis by getting a normal x-ray? is there any other options that could tell he has a collapsed trachea? he’s had chest x-rays before and nothing seemed abnormal, so that rules out some other sicknesses.

Sorry that there has not been a response yet. Have you spoken to your vet about your thoughts?

My dog is a 3 year old terrier mix and went to a new vet and she said he has mild luxating patella medial grade 1. No other vet ever said anything about that. She said he was probably born with it. Will it effect his walking?

Hello-
I apologize that no one has had a chance to answer your question. I think your best bet would be to have a detailed discussion with your vet- and probably ask for a second option as well- to find out exactly what is to be expected.
