My dog was spayed almost 4 weeks ago and appears to have just developed a small seroma on her incision. Has anyone else had this experience and did you contact your vet?

Possible Herpes Eye In A Feral Cat

Biscuit is a 90% feral female cat that I have been feeding for several years. Initially, I trapped her and got her spayed, and now she has indoor shelter. She has always had this awful goop coming out of her eyes. I asked our vet about it, and she said it was probably feline herpes. Based on the photo, would you agree, Dr. Magnifico? My understanding is that herpes is basically an untreatable condition and that it will eventually make her go blind. If it’s herpes, is she in a lot of pain? I worry about her suffering, but she won’t let me near her, period, so there is not much I can do to help her with a chronic and uncurable condition. Thoughts?

Hello. I am so sorry that you and your son are going through this. Have you by any chance had time to phone your regular vet rather than just have the ER vet assist you. Your primary vet may be able to help you find a more affordable option🤞Sometimes there are more than one option for treatment depending upon the situation. Also- depending on the diagnosis and cause- you might be able to find help online via YouTube. What kind of dog is it? What was the diagnosis? What surgery are they suggesting? What X-rays were taken? Did you have… Read more »

Hi again all!!! So- today I took Rontu t the Ma and Pa trail. He was misbehaved, to say the least, yesterday. Today- he was a model citizen🤷‍♀️ So, I have to ask if his behavior may have been due to the fact that the kids were with me for some reason?

If the kids don’t normally go for trail walks, then yes, that’s likely the issue. I’d bring one kid for a while, then bring the second once he’s adapted to the first.

Good Morning And Happy Thanksgiving Pawbly Friends!!! We Decided To Go To A Local Trail This …

Good morning and happy thanksgiving Pawbly friends!!! We decided to go to a local trail this morning with the kids and the dogs. Rontu, who is usually pretty good on leash, was really a maniac. Lots of panting, whining, pulling…. really a jerk😞 My thinking is anxiety because it is not one of our normal walking trails. We walk everyday, but the same usual routes with little variation. I am now going to start bringing him to other places once or twice a week where we can work on this behavior. I will be sure to bring lots of treats and patience. We have not had this issue with any of our other GSDs, so I am just guessing that this will be a good way to start to correct this behavior. If anyone has any other ideas, please share. Thanks!!!🐾💛

Hello!
Happy thanksgiving. I think you are spot on! Try new places and try tho balance the excitement (and yes possibly anxiety too) of a new place with the focused intellectually challenging aspect of exploring. Keep him on a tight watch and enjoy as he learns new boundaries and new explorations. Sending love to you all.

I Saw The Video From Dr. Magnifico Regarding Polyp Removal And Cost. I Was Given From …

I saw the video from Dr. Magnifico regarding polyp removal and cost. I was given from a vet here in the Salt Lake City area the cost of $2,000. How do I find a vet who will do the procedure for a lot less? Also, how do I make sure my feline has a polyp. She has only had a visual inspection and did show discharge on the right side when she sneezed. She has the snoring sound, the high pitched sound, and sneezing.

Good morning-
I would call around to local animal shelters and rescues to see if they know of a vet who is familiar with this issue. You could also talk to your vet and see if they have any other recommendations/advice or if they can refer you to a vet who is also familiar with nasal polyps.

Hello. There are lots of vets who are not as expensive. You have to call and ask and keep calling and keep asking. If you’re do find someone please share your pets story in our storylines section so others can benefit. Don’t give up! Good luck

Harry usually chews on toys and treats. Yesterday he tore two blankets up. Some pieces are missing. Hope they are not in his belly. He is not hungry. Very well fed. He’s always snatched my other dogs treats and food. When he first got here, June 2020,, he chewed the stuffing out of his bed. Hasn’t done any of that till yesterday.

What is your question?

Hi there-
I’m not sure what your question is. If you are wondering if there is an obstruction that your dog might need removed because of the missing pieces of blanket, I would definitely watch for signs and keep track of his bathroom if. As always, you could make an appointment with your vet to see for sure. If you asking about his behavior- that is something, training, time, consistency and patience will help with.

I Have A Cat That I Suspect Likely Has A Soft Palate Or Nasal Polyp. So …

I have a cat that I suspect likely has a soft palate or nasal polyp. So far we have seen my usual vet twice. The 1st visit they just looked at the cat and told us it was probably a respiratory infection and sent us home w/ a course of antibiotics (Orbax). That was a $150 visit. The cat completed the antibiotics and showed no improvement in it’s respiratory status, plus it seems like the meds made the car loose his appetite to the point of hardly eating. We just went back for another f/u visit, this time insisting on at least some diagnostic tests and they drew blood for labs, and did a chest x-ray (which the said appeared clear). This time they sent us home with azithromycin and prednisolone (more antibiotics and a steroid). That was a $500 visit. I expressed concern about an obstruction or polyp to the vet, and was told that if this course of meds didn’t work, we might need to see a specialist. I would be very grateful if anyone could put me in touch with a vet like Dr. Krista Maginfico that could help us address the medical issue at a reasonable price in the Austin, Tx area. Please, help if you know of anyone…..thank you in advance.

Good morning- so sorry about your car. Is it possible to get referred to a specialist by your vet? I know you already spoke to them, but perhaps a quick over the phone conversation could point you in the right direction if your vet isn’t equipped to diagnose? Or maybe call your local humane society and ask if they know of a vet practice that is capable? I hope you can get in touch with someone you’re comfortable with. Best of luck!!

My cat has gone missing for the past 4 days.. We checked everywhere.. We asked the neighbours about her but only some saw her which was 4 days ago.. She is 1 year old. She also has 3 kittens each 1 month old.. It is normal for cats to run away like this? Are there any chances of her coming back? Could you help me? What are the possibilities of this?

Good morning. I’m sorry about your cat. There could be many reasons for her to be missing…. unfortunately, there is no way to know for sure. Hopefully she shows up🙏

She could have run off. She could have gotten injured and can’t return. Please, keep her kittens indoors at all times and spay/neuter them when they’re old enough. IF she returns, please spay her and keep her inside.
