We have a 7 year old German Shepard with perianal fistulas. He has been on this course of prednisone for 2 weeks, started at 30 mg per day and after one week and much improvement in the anal area we reduced the dose to 20 mg per day. Yesterday he started vomiting and today he has not had anything to eat or drink. He is still vomiting, just slime coming up. I am assuming that the medicine did not stay down yesterday and he would not take it today. He is also very lethargic today. He has been taking 20 mg of pepcid and 1 g carafate with food prior to taking the prednisone. Every other time he has been on prednisone getting him to eat has not been a problem. Not sure what to do this time to get him to eat so that he can take the meds.
One of our cats woke up this morning with an oozy/watery eye. Clear fluid and gooey looking. I have erythromycin at home, but she is pregnant. Is it safe to use this on her? thank you, ~kelly
Why does my pug keep shaking her head and licking?
I have a pit bull mix that is absolutely terrified of getting her nails clipped, ears cleaned, and bathed or sprayed with flea remedy. She won’t even let me give her a dry bath.
I get anywhere near her with this stuff and she starts growling and showing teeth. I back off and she looks away at me and won’t come to me for awhile even if I don’t have the stuff in my hands anymore.
I know the nail clipping phobia comes from when I tried to clip her nails and messed up, hitting her quick. But everything else I have no idea.
I took in a lady’s cat because her son was constantly on the brink of death. She’s 8, is missing an ear, has a clubbed foot, and is declawed. So she’s pretty messed up and would be nearly impossible to rehome. She’ll use a puppy pad and loves our kitchen, but one of our other cats, Siberia, goes out of her way to attack her.
We put a baby gate between them, but Siberia can now jump it. This cat is now terrified to go to her litter box and puppy pad because she is afraid she will be cornered, so she pees on the floor mat. If I put this cat in a room by herself, she will never get any attention. We don’t know anyone who would take her. I’m having trouble finding homes for the healthy young adult fosters I have. For now all we can think of is to cage Siberia.
What is the best type of collar to use for a small dog that pulls on the leash?
Can allergies make our black lab cough? What can we give her?
Hello. I have a 3 year old male silky terrier and a 4 year old female Yorkie poo. Recently a brown lab puppy has moved in behind me. Not sure of its sex. My male dog is going crazy trying to bite and get to this lab. We even put lattice work over our existing fence to provide some security. My male will not let him alone the entire time the lab is out. My male will bark consistently at the dog, bite at the lattice work and run back and forth. He is normally submissive to my female and this is very out of character for him. Any suggestions/ideas???
