I Have A 2 Year Old Pug That Has Started Acting Strange Since Monday The Day He …

I have a 2 year old pug that has started acting strange since Monday the day he went to get his anal glands expressed. Hey has stopped welping at the table when we eat , he has also stopped eating his canned food and only eats his kibble at night, and he has stopped snoring at night like he used to. The thing I’m most worried about is that he has lost two whiskers this month.

Hello,
If a client calls me with concerns like this I always tell then to listen to their concerns. You know your pet better than anyone else and you are their only advocate. Isn’t it better to be safe than sorry?

My Pug Was Throwing Up Today In The Morning He Has Thrown Up Last Week Which …

My pug was throwing up today in the morning he has thrown up last week which was when I took him to the vet they told me to change his food because that will help. I changed his food to royal canin for pugs and he seemed to be doing much better but he would only eat at night so I went out and bought him pedigree canned food he does perfectly fine with the beef but his breeder told us to buy him the pedigree puppy food so we started giving him the puppy food yesterday then he woke up today and threw up twice it’s like some sort of white foam with mucus we also just noticed that his private part is really stiff he is peeing okay and he’s not neutered he’s two years old should I start to worry

Hello,
I’m sorry but I don’t quite understand your question. It sounds like you should call your vet and ask for help with the concerns you have. I’m not sure if any of the information you list is related to the problems you are concerned about. But I think your vet can direct you. Ask about intestinal parasites, food, anti nausea medications and anything else you have questions about.

Good morning
If your dog continues vomiting, you may want to get him to a vet ER. If he is eating and drinking normally and doesn’t seem to be lethargic- he is probably fine.

You asked this question 3 days ago, as well. I think I’d call the vet today and ask their opinion since he’s vomited twice now.

Hello,
I’m sorry but there isn’t enough pertinent medical information for anyone to answer this. It doesn’t sound like an emergency but I would call your regular vet and ask for a check up. Just to be safe. Ask for the anal sacs to be checked. If the vomiting persists for to the vet ASAP

If you aren’t on a preventative and you aren’t submitting fecals every year then yes. It’s possible. But do not buy an otc without taking to your vet first.

Good morning-
It is so hard to tell anything from a photo. This could be an allergic reaction possibly. You will have to have your vet look at them in person though to be sure. If it is, they can give you some medications (oral/topical) that will help clear it up and offer some comfort to your pup. It could also be a side effect caused by something else- I wouldn’t do anything until you get to see your vet. Best of luck!!!!

Neutering is a safe procedure and cost can vary. I usually ask for an exam,$45, pre op bloodwork $50 and updated vaccines. Surgery is about 150-300. But there are lots of low price spay and neuter clinics around me too. Some are about $20

Hello,
I would be worried that the licking is an indication of pain. Limping can be indicative of many things to. like injury, illness or Orthopedic issues. Please see a vet about this. There is no other credible advice I can give from here.

My 9 Year Old Pug Has A Seroma On His Right Back Hip. It Was Drained Once …

My 9 year old pug has a seroma on his right back hip. It was drained once due to discomfort.

It’s now filled back up over the last few days. We’ve been monitoring it since our vet doesn’t want to drain it unless it’s absolutely necessary.

It’s really big. It’s pulling the skin down with the weight of it.

How is it possible for the body to heal the muscle area where the space exists when all that liquid is in there and stretching the skin?

He is eating, drinking and seems fine, but he’s having trouble walking with the weight of the liquid he’s now walking around with.

Is it dangerous at any point? Is there a time where it’s too much fluid in the area?

The space was cause by a car tire. He was grazed in our driveway. The skin got separated and me has formed a seroma. He is recovering well from the experience. He’s on antibiotics for the cuts he had and an anti inflammatory.

Thank you. 🙏🏻

Hello, In general I address seromas this way; if it isn’t infected or causing the patient problem I leave them alone. It takes time, often weeks to months but the body will reabsorb the fluid slowly and without incident. If it is a problem a drain can be placed in and around the pocket. But this comes with possible consequences. Like every surgery has risk. It requires anesthesia. There is a charge and a risk with this. Opening a sterile pocket to place a drain allows for the introduction of bacteria and can lead to infection. That’s worse than a… Read more »

If you did not get any paperwork with your puppy, I would make an appointment with your vet immediately. Let them know he is brand new and has no records.

Hello,
Find a vet who will help you. I often cast these guys or splint them. It is a longer process but we save many legs for clients who otherwise could t afford them. Call and keep calling. Get the leg splinted immediately.

Hello,
Please provide more information. Like what is bleeding? It is best to see a vet if you think this might be an emergency or if the bleeding persists or is severe.

Good morning. Is this a wound? Or is it raw from irritation? Allergic symptom? Depending on what the cause is, the treatment is different. My suggestion would be to get him to the vet right away to find out what is going on, but in the meantime try to get him comfortable.
