Bebo’s Bloody Urine Was The Result Of A Urinary Stone. Cystotomy. The Surgery And Costs Associated With This Condition.
Treatment Cost (USD): $878.00
Bebo was seen about a year before his surgery for bloody urine. His first visit at our clinic included an exam, blood work, antibiotics, radiographs, and a prescription food for urinary calculi. This initial exam and treatment plan cost was $297.45 Over the next few months the blood in the urine dissipated. In some cases urinary stones can be dissolved over time. Based on the initial urinalysis Bebo's vet was skeptical this would be Bebo's case. We encourage water intake and a urinary prescription diet in all of these cases. While some stones are not dissolvable we want to try to prohibit further stone formation. Also, these pets benefit greatly from the fluid help. Most dogs with urinary stones show little to no signs of pain, but,, we know this is painful because many pets will strain, urinate more frequently, or even have accidents in the house. Every pet with any kind of urinary changes should be examined (often with a urine sample sent to the lab AND an xray (although not all stones will show up well on an xray!).

My 12 1/2 Year Old Miniature Schnauzer Has A Bump On Her Face I Discovered Two Days Ago. …

My 12 1/2 year old miniature schnauzer has a bump on her face I discovered two days ago. The bump was originally pink and matted over by hair. She got a full hair cut about a month ago so the bump wasn’t there before that. We’ve been putting Neosporin on it and a liquid band aid but after cutting more hair from the wound which had scabs over it with the hair, it is red and still fully exposed with a black edge. Not sure what this could be. Is it life threatening or do I need to take her to the vet?

Good morning-
It is so hard to tell from a picture. I think I would call and get an appointment with the vet- it could be something simple, but I would make sure. Best of luck.

To the vet, for sure. They’ll want to put hands on it to help in diagnosis and cure.

Hello,
Are you a patient of Jarrettsville vet? I think that you are. If so please don’t give another dose for 24 hours. Also provide a meal if it was taken recently so that food is in the stomach. If there is any vomiting or diarrhea please come in tomorrow at 1245 to see me. I am at the clinic 1-3 tomorrow. If you need anything sooner you can email me or send a private message via our Jvc Facebook page.

Ok. Give him a small soft meal (wet food or watered down kibble) in a few hours. And then the same for breakfast tomorrow morning. But skip the am dose of the carprofen. Call me at the clinic while we are open if you need anything.

My Miniature Schnauzer Has Been Vomiting Daily, And Has Light/pale Pink Colored Gums. She Has…

My miniature schnauzer has been vomiting daily, and has light/pale pink colored gums. She has vomited semi-solid, but mostly a yellow or clear liquid (sometimes with some foam). Today, however, I believe she vomited her stomach’s fluids (green colored). After vomiting, she loses energy. She has lost weight and doesn’t eat her food in the period of time she used to. We thought it was gastritis, but when we changed her food to one that helps her digestion, it didn’t have any effect on her! What could she have?

Hello- I am sorry about your dog. You should get her to a vet right away. From the sounds of it, she is very dehydrated and has gone from bad to worse. Your vet will do a thorough examination and be able to help you better with regard to what is wrong and how to fix it. Good luck.

Small dogs dehydrate quickly. Please, get her to the vet ASAP…this morning, if at all possible.

I agree with Laura and Sarah. Please see a vet immediately. I would want your pup to have a thorough exam. A fecal sample sent to the lab for analaysis of intestinal parasites (these are often not visible in the feces by the naked eye), and bloodwork done to check for liver disease, pancreatitis and even a maldigestion profile. Schnauzers are notorious for liver ailments and pancreatitis. Please don’t wait any longer. The longer you wait the harder these cases can be to resolve. Good luck.

Hello, It is very difficult to diagnose a mass or lesion via a photo. Your best way to understand what it may he and what should be done about it is to see your vet. They will try to offer suggestions and advice. But often diagnosing relies on biopsy of tissue to definitively diagnose.

I Have A 7 Month Old Miniature Schnauzer/yorkie Mix Puppy. I Am Absolutely In Love…

I have a 7 month old miniature schnauzer/yorkie mix puppy. I am absolutely in love with her! The problem is that I think I love her too much? I can’t stand up to her puppy dog eyes and I just want to coddle her forever! I let her take up all my time and attention and I treat her like she is my own daughter. Thinking of having to give her up makes me want to cry for days. However, she has snapped and drawn blood twice now. The first time she did was to my dad who was petting her while she was chewing on a bone. My dad wasn’t mad about it at all and said he should’ve just left her alone since she was growling. The second time, that just happened a few days ago, was because she had been really scratching at her tummy so I thought it might help if I put a small amount of benadryl cream on the itchy spot. She freaked out and bit me. I know she was just hurting and scared but she’s never snapped at me like that before. I trying popping her butt and saying no loud and firmly but I was more upset and ended up crying in the bathroom because all I could think about was that I’d have to give her away if she ever snapped at a child of mine. What’s terrible is when I came out of the bathroom, I apologized to her and was scared she’d be mad at me for popping her. Am I too emotionally unstable to take care of this puppy? How could I ever bring myself to get rid of her? Do I really have to get rid of her?????

I Have A Miniature Golden Doodle That Was Spayed A Week And A Half Ago…

I have a miniature golden doodle that was spayed a week and a half ago. She has a bulge near the surgical site. The external wound is healing well without signs of dehiscence. We took her to the vet and were told that this was a seroma. I am concerned that it might be a hernia. How can you tell the difference in a dog?

If you are concerned, I would call the vet back and thoroughly explain what you are worried about. If you are still nervous, explain that and let them know your thoughts.

A hernia is an opening in the body wall. A seroma is a fluid pocket between the body wall and the skin. They “feel” different. Your vet can tell you which is which.

Krista Magnifico

I agree with Sarah. This is a question for the vet you paid to do the surgery.

Krista Magnifico

Hello, Well I would assume that they do both feel the same. Depending on the size of the seroma you want to try to get your fingers under the skin and under the fluid pocket (seromas are usually very soft and fluctuate) to feel the edges of the linea alba and the suture line there. If I am uncomfortable with feeling confident about this then an ultrasound or draining the seroma to get a better feel is an option. As a matter of professional decorum it is always imperative to me that every client feel confident in their pets care… Read more »

Could it be a wound? Allergic reaction? I’m sorry but we need a much better description and an in person exam for it to be looked at by a veterinarian. For now keep your pet from licking it, keep it clean and talk to your vet if it persists or worsens.

I am not an expert but could it be he/she got into something wet while walking and it caused a type of burn? I would wash it thoroughly with water and a very very mild soap, and use some sort of safe ointment to gently cover the wound. Best to you.

PLEASE HELP! My Dog Lost The Ability To Use His Back Legs On Sunday…

PLEASE HELP! My dog lost the ability to use his back legs on Sunday. I took him to a vet immediately to get help and he thought that it was a compressed disc and put him on steroids and pain med hoping that it would get better. On Wednesday it had not gotten any better and the vet suggested surgery. I took him to a hospital for surgery but when they did an MRI, the did not see a compressed disc. They did say that there were some spots on the spinal cord that were bright on the MRI and they should be dark. They have tested him for many different things and given him a sonogram but everything has come back negative so far. He lost his bladder function so they think he may have a UTI but nothing else so far. Right now they are testing him for Cryptococcosis and other fungal issues. Kingston (miniature poodle mix) has still not moved his back legs and tail. I had to leave him at the ER today to go back home (3 hours away) but will be going back soon. Any ideas about this? Please help, I’m desperate! I want my baby to walk again. He is only 4 and still has so much life to live.

Hello,
If you are under the care of a neurologist I would keep asking them for help in understanding your pets condition and options. If you are not under the care of a neurologist ask to be referred to one.

Hi Nicole; so sorry about your baby. You have done everything that needed to be done. It does sound possible there can be an infection. Sounds like your baby is in competent hands; see what the tests show. ❤️
