Maggie Mae is a 10 year old English Springer Spaniel who presented with severe dental disease. She had tartar buildup, gingivitis and gingival erosion (inflammation of the gums and receding of gum tissue); she had bad breath, thanks to the dental disease, and she had already lost some of her teeth. It was recommended that Maggie Mae's owner schedule a dental exam and cleaning, and that some of Maggie's loose and diseased teeth be removed.

It’s just a supplement. It might help, or it might not. I prefer feeding a diet that works best with my dog’s system. This is easy to determine – if the dog’s coat is greasy/patchy/smelly, or if the dog has pudding poop, or if the dog’s constantly itchy and licking/chewing paws or shaking their head, the food may very well be the culprit.

I don’t like buying something that reads like snake oil. I would want to know a LOT more about this product before considering it for my dog.

Hello, My Year Old Female Cat Jingles Has Had A Snoring Sound For…

Hello, my year old female cat Jingles has had a snoring sound for a while now my vet told me that she most likely has a polyp as he just informed me 4 days ago he gave me an antibiotic (which they gave me before) and told me that she could have surgery to remove it at a vet 30 min away in State College and it would be around $1500.00-2,000.00.

I had taken her to the vet when this first stated about 6 months ago they gave me 2 different antibiotic the second one which I guess was stronger seemed to help for a short time and now she is breathing bad again.

My poor girl seems miserable and I am frustrated with that thought I can’t help her unless I come up with that kind of money 🙁 I would love to bring her to you and help her breath right again she is my world and I want to help her so much. I am willing to travel

My vet is Sylvan Animal Hospital, I did not take her to the place in State College where I was told the surgery would be. The vet did tell he did not usually do this but could sedate her and see if he could remove it ???

I did not feel confident with that, and after watching you on You Tube I would love your help with my baby girl. Plus I could afford it. Or if you could recommend someone close to me that might be able to help that would not charge me a arm and a leg. thank you so much!

Good morning. You may want to call around to see what vets close to you charge. You could also speak to your local spca or humane society, (etc.) to see if they can help out in any way.

I Need To Know, My Daughters Kitten Died Suddenly, Sunday. It Had Upper Respiratory Infection…

I need to know, my daughters kitten died suddenly, Sunday. It had upper respiratory infection, maybe herpes we don’t know couldn’t afford a vet. We did have some antibiotics we gave him. He was about 6-7 weeks old weighed 1.2 pounds never gained any. We steamed him he would eat sometimes, solids. I’m not sure, if when I was giving him a dropper of electrolytes it went down the wrong way and it killed him. We gave him the dropper before always careful to go in the side of the mouth never aiming straight back. But he just went limp and never came back I tried breathing in his mouth suctioning his mouth/nose. I just don’t know if I caused it. I can’t remember if I did give it to him about that time it happened so fast. He was earlier that morning really bad. I just don’t know if I caused it, please tell if I did.

Hello, I am so sorry for your kitten passing away. I just wanted to point out that very young animals and very old animals can sometimes “go” quite suddenly, despite all measures to treat them. If ever in doubt how to administer liquid oral antibiotics or other medicines, please do not hesitate to take your pet to your vet– he/she (or an experienced technician) will be more than happy to demonstrate the proper way to administer the medicine. Oral medications can be tricky to administer… But, the main thing to feel good about is that you did your very best… Read more »

I Will Be Taking My Two Dogs From South Korea To Chicago On Monday. …

I will be taking my two dogs from South Korea to Chicago on Monday. They will be riding in the cargo area. One is a Boston Terrier, which I know can be a LITTLE dangerous, but we don’t have a choice. I have all natural chamomile tablets to help keep them calm, but I’m afraid that the altitude change and chamomile in combination could impede the breathing and make it more dangerous. Does anyone have experience or recommendations on what I can do or if the chamomile is a bad idea? Thank you so much!!

Hello, I would be very worried too! I junk it might be helpful to talk to the airline and see if there are any tips they might be able to offer? I would also ask about how you can track and monitor your pet and whether a ticket for gem to rise with you is even an option? And then ask every other airline too. Lastly I would make sure your dog is microchipped and the carrier is labeled all over to state his breed and “live animal” “dog onboard”. As a side note I would also ask your vet… Read more »

Hello,
It is important to know the cause of the bad breath. If it is dental disease or a bad tooth the only way to improve this is to have the teeth cleaned and any bad teeth removed. Diet and health status can also influence breath. Please ask your vet to help understand what’s the cause.

Have you checked her mouth? If she has bad breath, something’s wrong – either she isn’t well or she has a dental issue, most likely.

Krista Magnifico

Hello,
The bad breath can be due to dental disease, a poor diet or a few other possible mouth problems. She is fairly young to have bad teeth though. And the licking can be allergies, parasites like fleas or mange or even nausea. Have you spoken to your vet about these concerns. She needs an exam to help understand what’s going on.

I’d get to the vet- it is probably an infection or serious dental issue that if not taken care of, will spread and become much worse. I hope your pup is ok.

Hello, I would also guess dental disease. This is very common in chihuahuas, especially those over 7-8 years old. If it isnt dental disease I would also consider an abscess or even a foreign body stuck in the mouth. Please see your vet as soon as possible. Bad teeth can affect the ability to eat, and the heart. I expect that the vet will provide antibiotics and recommend a dental cleaning (probably with extractions needed). If the cost is concerning seek a second opinion,, but please get the mouth healthy. It will make a big difference in your pups life… Read more »
