Boston terrier was having neck pain. Vet gave muscle relaxer, gabapentin and prednisone.. she suspected IVDD. My baby wasn’t doing that great with meds every 12 hours. So recently we went to 8 hours. He seemed to be doing a lot better. Well today, he started to walk towards me and he froze in mid step. And fell down. Rushed to vet. She said he is in a lot of pain- major spasm- not seizure. Gave him a pain shot that pretty much not him out. She said he needed surgery – only can do it in Dallas. If I couldn’t afford surgery then he needs to be put down. I’m trying to get donations for the surgery. Trying to give him a chance. He still walks on his own, poops etc. I saw videos of dogs recovering from IVDD without surgery and they were worse off than my baby. What should I do??? Any advice? I’d like to know what meds Dr. Magnifico used on Hank in her YouTube videos. Please help!
My Boston Terrier had a small bump appear on his nose a few weeks ago. It has since tripled in size and looks red and angry. We have an appointment with the vet this week but I was wondering if others here could lend insight. Feeling like it could be a Histiocytoma. He is 3 years old. The bump doesn’t bug him at all. Thanks for any advice/ thoughts.
I adopted a 4 year old rescue small lab mix about 2 weeks ago. She is already deeply attached to me, and is starting to show some separation anxiety. Keeping her contained and safe while I’m at work has become a challenge. My Boston Terrier is content gated in the kitchen, but my rescue Duchess simply climbs over the gate. So I put her in a crate and I have attached a pic of the result (it’s sideways). She had bloodied her mouth and scraped her muzzle. The last couple of days I’ve left her loose in the house and hoped for the best. I saw evidence of her trying to push the gate through to get into the kitchen – to be with my other dog? I don’t know. Any advice is welcome.
my 13 yr old Boston Terrier,Obadiah, was diagnosed with Vestibular Syndrome; Dr. Jon gave me antibiotics and prednisone to clear up his symptoms of twisted head, stumbling, and whining. It’s been two weeks now and Obadiah is still pacing, whining at intervals-his appetite is good and his urinary/bowel habits are OK. Should I call Dr. Jon since this behavior is so erratic???? He’s pacing back and forth, running into things(he has cataracts), and I don’t have any meds to calm him down.
My 6 month old, 17lb Boston terrier was neutered one week ago. He had a cryptorchid and had both neutering procedures done. We brought him home and that first day he was very out of it. By the next morning he had a golf ball sized hard lump parallel to his penis. Incision was intact, no fever. Took back to vet, he was diagnosed with a seroma. He is a very active puppy. Vet said very important he remain coned, very activity restricted and she put him in carprofen, trazadone, and acepromazine. The latter drugs make him mildly calm after an hour but he’s fast and gets the zoomies and we’ve had to crate him A lot. He now has diarrhea and seems as if defecation is more labored. Ideas? Thank you
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!!
my 31/2 year old boxer Daisy lives with a 10 year old boston terrier that belongs to my mom. Daisy is spayed and she is a non agressive dog. One day last week she was feeling sick and refused to eat. My mom put dog food in front of her while she was laying down. She wouldnt eat it and the boston terrier came over and my mom fed one piece to her hoping daisy would start to eat but nope. she did this a couple times until the smaller dog stuck her nose near daisys food and Daisy lunged a her . I assumed it was because she was not feeling good. But a day later she was laying down chewing a bone and the smaller dog came over and she snapped a her again. The next day my mom was eating and both dogs sat in front of her like they always do and out of the blue Daisy snapped at the smaller dog again. I dont understand why all of a sudden she is doing this. She never used to before. We are moving soon and wanted to get another boxer but are afraid to because we are unsure if Daisy is going to continue this agression.
Hi! My pet ate some acrylic paint, I googled the exact brand and product and it is non-toxic. It was a smallish tube and she punctured it, she did not eat all of it, but she did consume a little. She is an 11-month-old Frenchton (half french bulldog and half Boston terrier). I just want to make sure that even though it says it is non-toxic and she only. ate a little, that she will be okay. I made sure to make her drink as much water as possible. She is acting normal and drinking and eating fine.
UPDATE: Good News!!! Just checked the art set out again and realized that each row of paint tubes was different, the first row was acrylic paint, the second was watercolor paint, and the third was oil paint. I re-checked the tube of paint that she ate and it was watercolor paint! I checked with poison control and they said that the amount of watercolor paint that she consumed will not harm her (other than a bit vomiting and possible diarrhea). I am so relieved.
I have a 9 year old 18 lb Boston terrier diagnosed with IVDD with hind leg paralysis on sat 11/25 She is on crate rest, 1/2 tab carptofen 75 mg every 24 hours, 1/2 tab methocarbamol 500mg every 12 hours and Tramadol 50 mg every 12 hours. She has regained some movement in her hind legs but she has these heavy panting spells and body shakes. Is that from pain? Also she hasn’t pooped since sat 11/25. She is urinating, drinking water and eating. Is there anything more I can do for her?
My Boston terrier is in a lot of pain. His jaw is swollen and he keeps tilting his head sideways. I don’t know what happened,if he was maybe kicked or bit by a spider or if it is a tooth or ear infection? I live in a small rural town and the closest 24 hour emergency vet is 2 hour drive away. What can I do to help him. Do u have any suggestions or advice you can give me?
