Hello
without knowing Patient specifics I usually say about 3-4 months old. But if your pup is underweight, undermuscled or over active, or has any kind of disease process that might change. This is a question for your vet who knows your pup best. ,

We fed our Doberman 3 meals a day until she was nearly 6 months. When she lost interest in lunch, we dropped down to 2.

Hello.
I tell my clients to apply it right before bed. So this won’t, or is significantly less likely, to happen.

My 4 Year Lab X Great Dane X Bull Mastiff Had TTA Surgery On His Left Knee …

My 4 year Lab x Great Dane x bull mastiff had TTA surgery on his left knee about 15 months ago and about 9 days ago he had to have surgery on it again for a Latent meniscus tear on the back of the medial side.
A few days ago he developed a seroma. It’s a good handful size. When the vet aspirated some fluid it was the normal blood stained colour however the fluid was quite viscose (this vet was filling in for the vet that did the meniscus surgery as he is away for a few weeks). My concern is that synovial fluid is leaking into the dead space, along with normal fluid. If SF is leaking from the internal incision site of the joint capsule, will this heal on its own? Also has this occured because Benson may have been over doing it, even though I’ve tried very hard to limit his activity? No fluid is leaking out of the suture site on the skin. He’s currently on antibiotics and a NSAID. I was a bit annoyed I had to pay for the consultant considering it was a post op issue.

Hello,
This is really a question for your surgeon. They can help identify which layer has the issue and also guide you in monitoring it.

Hello- just wondering if you got in to the vet yesterday and if so what they said. If you’re wary though, remember to voice your concerns…. and there is always the option to seek out another opinion from a different practice if you’re not happy at the moment. I know it is hard to leave where you’re comfortable, and the current corona virus situation doesn’t make it easier….. hoping Benson is doing ok!!😊🐾

My Cat Is Home From A 3 Day Stay At The ER With FLUTD. He Was Partially …

My cat is home from a 3 day stay at the ER with FLUTD. He was partially blocked. His kidneys suffered slightly. He was sent home with pain medication, antibiotics, and something to relieve him of urethral spasms. It has already cost me $2700 and I cant possibly offered another stay as he isn’t peeing too well already after 24hours being home. He is still only trickling pee rather than fully expressing his bladder. What do I do? I can’t afford another hospital visit.

You need to call the vet who did the surgery and speak with them. Is it possible your cat was not ready to come home? Are there signs you should be looking for… signs of milestones or setbacks? Explain that your cat is still struggling with no improvement and you’re concerned if it should have been sent home at all. Are you already scheduled for a follow up appointment? Also explain your budget concerns and ask about options of payment as well. Hope he is ok !!! 🐾💛

Your kitten is adorable. Please see your vet ASAP to insure he stays healthy.

It’s impossible to tell, particularly with a very dark photo. Unless you bought this kitten from a Bengal breeder, or can confirm one of the parents was a Bengal, there’s literally no way to know.

Enjoy your kitten! And as Dr. M said, get it to the vet asap to get on a good care routine.

Hi My 10 Year Old Rat Terrier Stomach Started To Get Big I Assumed That I Was …

Hi my 10 year old rat terrier stomach started to get big I assumed that I was feeding him to much, it just kept getting bigger I ended up taking him to the vet and the vet did an x ray. The mass she showed me on the x ray is pretty big. She said she would do exploratory surgery to see if I can be removed, but if not she just wants to put him to sleep. What are the complications and reasons she would not be able to remove mass?? My dog acts like he is fine he plays runs swims barks eats normal nothing about him seems sick except the giant mass in his stomach!!

Hi there- that is a discussion that you would have to have with your vet. I am guessing that it depends on what type of mass it is and how it is connected to the surrounding tissue…. then the type of surgery that would need to be done if it is possible to remove it. Again, I would talk to the vet about it and explain to them that putting the dog down is not something you are willing to do. Best of luck 💛🐾

Hello, It might be possible to have an ultrasound done to gain more information about the mass before doing the exploratory surgery. At my clinic the ultrasound is about $300 and the surgery is about $800 plus. So often many clients want to save their resources for the meaningful service (most imperative and important) which is the surgery. So don’t waste money (if you are on a budget) just do the surgery. You really aren’t ever sure until you go in. And lastly if it is a splenic mass it’s important to do the surgery ASAP. Waiting might allow bleeding… Read more »

I would definitely take her to the vet or ER. This baby is too small and weak to overcome all these problems on its own. This is an emergency, in my opinion.

Good morning- if the stitches are scheduled to come out, I would definitely bring these symptoms up at the visit. Make sure that the vet is aware of what is going on… unless have you already spoken to them about this? If you have, then explain your concern as there is no improvement. Best of luck- hope your cat recovers and is ok💛🐾

Hello,
I’m so sorry to hear about your puppy. Please call all family and friends asking for help. I would also call all of the local
Shelters and rescues. Even some of the pet centered foundations. You can go to the jarrettsville vet website and look under resources for a list of places who might be able to help. If you cannot fins anyone to help I can seek help through a local rescue but she would have to be surrendered to them for further care. I wish you all the best.

Hi there, Our 1 year old staffie got spayed 5 days ago, her incision wounds looked great and still do only she has a balloon shaped lump on one side of her incision. We have tried our hardest to keep her as inactive as possible but when my partner’s father came in she went nuts wanting to great him 🤦🏻‍♀️ I did a little research and thought it pointed to a seroma but I am unsure. There are no changes in her, she is her usual happy self. I wanted to see if I could get some info first before racing to the vets with her as I am worried now! Thank you!

Please call the vet who did the surgery for help. Or call your vet to have it examined.
