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!).

Canine Neuter And Umbilical Hernia Repair Surgery, Meet Beau And Baxter. Brothers With The Same Surgery, Same Day!
Treatment Cost (USD): $357.00
Beau (black) and Baxter (brown) are brothers. They are 8 months old and their parents wanted to neuter them to try to help the urine marking, aggression which can sometimes occur with brothers, and surgically correct their umbilical hernias. The hernias were found on physical exam with the veterinarian who gave them all of their puppy vaccines. hernias can be small and benign to large, severe and in need of immediate (or as soon as possible) surgical intervention. The severe hernias allow abdominal contents (usually intestines) to "slip" out of the abdomen. If this happens, and, if the intestines stop working, strangulate, dilate, or twist (torse) it can be life-threatening. For Baxter and Beau the hernia was small, (about 1/2 inch) but a pinkie finger could go into it, and the fat coming out of it could be pushed back into the abdomen. It is best to fix these and always spay/neuter as this is a congenital issue that can be passed on to the offspring.

Kirra’s Mass Removals And Dental Cleaning.
Treatment Cost (USD): $1028.52
Kirra had two masses growing under the skin over her spinal area. They larger one was about the size of a lemon and the smaller, just a few inches from the first closer to her tail, was about the size of a grape. The larger one was beginning to cause the skin to stretch to the point where rupture was eminent. When a mass ruptures the area is very unlikely to heal closed as this is abnormal tissue. A nonhealing wound or ruptured mass can result in chronic bleeding/exudate, infection or even maggots. Large masses that are about to cause skin rupture should be surgically excused before they get so large the skin opens or the mass removal is too large to close, or is causing the pet discomfort or ambulatory difficulty.

Treatment Cost (USD): $1650.00
Bosun's knee injury occurred like most of them do; he was running/playing in the park, having a grand time, then turned quickly, YELPED! After that he was chronically lame.. The lameness for this injury is typically bad for a few days, then improves marginally with rest, only to recur with any slight amount of exercise or activity.

Bosun is doing very well! Slow but steady recovery. Bosun is getting around noticeably better and can steady himself fairly easily when he gets up instead of having the leg fall away underneath him. I mean, we know at the age of ten, that Bosun will not be running around like his younger puppy days or anything, our expectations are realistic. He is much better getting up and moving around post surgery and his quality of life is considerably better. In my opinion, and I like to believe in Bosun’s too, the surgery was totally worth doing. Bosun is such… Read more »

Ear Hematoma In An Older Dog With Allergies. An Aural Hematoma Occurs With Head Shaking…
Treatment Cost (USD): $165.00
Lilly is an older lab with a history of allergies. When her ears flared up (redness and itching), she began to shake her head. This caused the blood vessels in her ear flap to rupture and caused the ear pinna (flap) to swell up. This also made her ears even more uncomfortable and worsened the swelling.

I cured a large hematoma on my cats ear with the homeopathic remedy Arnica mont 30. I believe I just gave it once a day, maybe twice. It took about a week to ten days to completely resolved but there was improvement right away which was steady until it resolved. The ear flap returned to normal. In this podcast homeopath Joette Calabrese mentions that in classical homeopathy, Arnica Montana is always used for hematomas. Cost $8.00.

I think before you try any treatments, a discussion with your vet would be a good idea. They know your pup vest, and can recommend what to use and how much/how often.

I am a huge supporter of full spectrum cbd oil for pets and human for a myriad of conditions. I have had multi successful results with pets for a variety of ailments – like in human, all pets are individuals, so dosages greatly vary – but there are no downside effect when starting treatment with minimal drops and adding as needed to correct dose.
make sure product is well researched, and that it is full spectrum , and the oils are ok – and that it is unflavored.
