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.

Cranial Cruciate Ligament Surgery. Meet Bosun. This Is The Story About His Lateral Fabellar Suture Repair For His Knee Injury.
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.

My Jack Russell Terrier Named Ollie(after The Skateboard Trick((since JRTs Are Known To Jump Really…

My Jack Russell Terrier named Ollie(after the skateboard trick((since JRTs are known to jump really high) short for Oliver))—I love him to death— is 14 and he has been incessantly licking his arms and paws every night. . . Tonight I came home to feed him his grain free cup of easy to digest dog food that he howls happily for, he ate and I read all of the ingredients on the label (all good). I went upstairs to change and while I was up there he was pestering my mom wanting me, so I come downstairs and he’s waiting with his famous rope toy, I of course get down and play with him the best I can getting creative and intimate, but he stopped twice in a 5 minute interval lick his joints. I said “that’s it”. And here I am asking what NSAIDs I should buy and give my beloved 22 lb Jack Russell. I can’t stand to see him uncomfortable or unspeakably in pain. The vet gave us some supplements that have like avocado oil and such in it, although he only can take the big chewable pill when I crush it up(finely) and mix it with peanut butter, but it’s a lot of pill to mix with PB. . . I really want some instant relief for him—the supplements will take a month or two to take effect and it’s just inconvinenent with my busy life. I will try harder but I need to emphasize that he is picky and he has gotten sick of the peanut butter in a matter of a few days . Please give some guiding advice at the soonest convenience on whatever day or night please and we thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.

Good morning. Honestly, this is a discussion to have with your vet. Let them know your feelings about the supplements. Ask about allergy meds that could possibly help. Make sure that whatever supplements you plan on using won’t interact poorly with any Rx that your vet might prescribe. Good luck.

there are NO over the counter human NSAIDs that are considered truly safe for pets. you’ll need to take him in to the vet for this one.

Anytime an animal is having trouble breathing it needs to see a vet ASAP!  It is possible she needs different medication or oxygen therapy!

She Has Been On All Of The NSAIDs At One Tome Or Another. Currently On…

She has been on all of the NSAIDs at one tome or another. Currently on Trocoxil, plus lots of supplements. She had surgery for FCP on both elbows at the age of 6.5. (I live in Cyprus by the way. No facilities for CT scanning of animals). My question really is this: She loves swimming and my friend has kindly said we can use her pool. I tried it for the first time 2 days ago and Alice is now more lame than ever. She gets so excited and it’s impossible to control that excitement. Am I doing more harm than good by letting her swim in the pool? My vet is a lovely man but he doesn’t seem to know what else to do for her. I would be grateful for any advice.

That is kind of strange, because swimming is low-impact exercise normally recommended for dogs with joint issues, including elbow dysplasia.http://www.offa.org/hd_treatment.html  I’m having a hard time imagining the swimming itself would be the issue … ? Is there lots of bouncing and running around before or after the actual swimming? What is her weight? Weight management is one of the most important strategies for dogs with joint issues. Other things that you may or may not have available where you live is acupuncture, laser therapy or fancy things such as platelet-rich plasma therapy etc. When was the last time her eblows… Read more »

Ah, I see, that would explain it then. re: weight what you want for a dog with joint issue is to appear quite thin to observation. You should be able to feel ribs easily and almost see them (depending on the breed and coat), see waistline readily and see good tummy tuck. Our JD has hip issues and I know that when he looks quite skinny to us it is a good weight for him. Thinner (while preserving good muscle mass) is always better. You do have quite a dilemma on your hands, as the swimming would be awesome while… Read more »

Hello Sue. We’ve learned a lot about elbow dysplasia (elbow incongruence) over the last few years. Though a fragmented medial coronoid process is often involved, this fragment, we have learned, is not the primary cause of progressive degeneration of the elbow involved. What does this mean? Surgical removal of the fragment alone (as was the common practice up to only a few years ago), though definitely relieving an immediate source of pain and lameness, does little to alter the course of degenerative joint disease of the elbow in the long-term. We now understand the incongruence (mal-alignment) between the head of the radius and the… Read more »
