throat

Avatar n tn My dog always has really disgusting bad breathe from her throat problems, always wanting to eat grass to soothe her throat and when throat gets really bad, she throws up alot. My vet suggested she may have stomach acid reflux and is now about to start her on the medication. I really hope they find out what is causing all these throat infections because it must be soooo horrible for the dogs.
1120748 tn?1259272014 Medication, and especially medication for something as serious as kidney problems, is not optional. The dog MUST get that medication if he is to be able to fight whatever the cause of the problem is.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have a Pekingese dog, He is 10 years old and does this once in awhile... it's like a choking thing...I usually rub his throat (softly) from the front to the back till he stops..not too long...a few rubs...it's like he looses breath and can't catch it...does this sound like what is happening to your pup? The Vet told me because he doesn't have a longer nose, he breathes that way at times?? As long as it doesn't happen alot, he told me not to worry...
Avatar n tn normal inoculations but not kennel cough. coughs several times and then seems to have to dig into his throat for a final clearing cough although nothing is produced. Has no heart problems. is running around on his walks like a 2 year old. Does not cough as much when out walking. My vet seemed to think it was nothing and he has suffered from little warts, one of which had to be taken off in an operation. Found nothing in his throat then. lives inside and is looked after.
Avatar n tn She may have broken something in her spine and the nerve signal isn't able to get to her legs. It's imperative that you get your dog to a vet TODAY. The longer you wait, the less likely she'll ever have the use of her legs. A dog who can't feel its legs or feet stands to get very ill. They get cuts in the numb parts of their bodies that get infected. It's not a pretty death. Please don't wait any longer and find a vet.
Avatar f tn The vet we visited only examined him via palpation and by looking down his throat. Tomorrow, I want to go to a vet with equipment for blood tests but I want to ask for opinion from as many vet as possible. I am not really satisfies with how my dog was examined the first two times.
Avatar m tn Although unusual in a dog so young, kidney problems can occur and would certainly cause a dog to stop eating (due to the associated nausea from the toxins). The only way to discount a kidney problem is to have blood taken and have it analyzed (most vets nowadays have in-house equipment for this).
Avatar n tn Your dog needs to see a vet asap, he could have an illness or something stuck in his throat, or teeth problems, or possibly swallowed something poisoness. . Is he still drinking water? If not, he won't last long, he'll become dehydrated fast.
Avatar n tn please get ur dog to the vet asap!unwise to give ur dog aspririn or anything else unless u know his medical condition and if not advised by ur vet!
Avatar f tn Vaseline isn't the best bet for this area. It's not water soluble and can trap bacteria underneath it. Expressing impacted anal glands is kind of like popping a zit. It's going to be irritated for a few days, and of course, the dog is going to lick any irritated area. I've found Dermachlor Flush Plus (available from the vet) to be a great antiseptic and antifungal rinse that also prevents most dogs from licking an injury.
903476 tn?1242237037 A good idea maybe would be if you could arrange a time to speak to the vet on the phone about it? Obviously she HAS been seen by her vet (not too long ago??) for her to have those prescriptions. He/she may insist on actualy examining her, or might at least be able to tell you if this is "normal" or needs attention. My own dog was always terrified at the vet's, so I understand.
Avatar n tn That way if I need to give her a IV at home when the Vet is not in I can. I think it when very will. My dog just set they and let me do it. But I hoping if we can get the buns down then thing may work out ok. She is eating home cook meals and drinking water fine. She has been keeping the food down for 6 days. We are starting her on fish oil and to other supports. Aventi Kp and Aventi KS. I talked to the vet today and he said it will not heard. thanks jr.
Avatar m tn MAKE -- I agree with all the above advice, take your dog to a vet!!! He will be able to look in her throat and feel of her neck and do bloodwork, and will be able to rule out her throat or thyroid having a problem. If you will do a search in this section for "dog cough," or words to that effect, you'll find a lot of people have dogs who wretch and cough, so sad.
1624744 tn?1299240923 DO NOT wait till Monday!! I agree with Margot....Is it possible to find another Vet today? Your dog should not go without peeing any longer.....A Vet will be able to express his bladder (Manually) and see what's going on.... By Chance, is your dog taking any pain medication? Did they give him anything at the Vet or to take home? Start calling around before this turns into an Emergency Room visit this weekend.....Good luck...Please caome back and let us know what you find out.....
Avatar n tn You aren't over-reacting!! Your dog needs a vet NOW. It sounds like an allergic reaction and the facial swelling can smother her to death. If you have plain benadryl (diphenhydramine with no decongestant) try pushing that down her throat. You'll have to get it past where the tongue presses up against the roof of the mouth and stroke her throat to help her swallow. The dosage is 1mg per pound of the dog's body weight.
Avatar n tn Another consideration would be some kind of seizure activity. To help your vet help your dog, keep records of these episodes and be as detailed as you possibly can as to time of day, activity, diet changes, location, etc. Whether seizures or allergies, you just might be able to nail down the trigger with excellent record keeping.
Avatar n tn Like you, we took her to the vet because she had lost 3-4 lbs, which is a lot for a puppy or an adult dog. The vet suggested that she might be bored with her food so we bought "animal gravy" to put on her food and began getting different types of food from the vet so the puppy (who is now a dog) would eat. It wasn't until her "Big Sister", an older Akita, began eating out of the husky's dish that she actually began to eat.
Avatar n tn Dogs are put on Lasix for heart problems ... You might want to take your dog to a different vet.
Avatar n tn I would suggest that if your dog is stable, save up the money or borrow money for a vet visit in the near future to correctly diagnose him. When you have the information, you can plan better about needed medications, if any.
Avatar n tn A visit to the vet is definitely in order. She could have tonsillitis. People don't realize it, but dogs (and cats, too) do have tonsils and they can get infected, just like in people. She could also have tracheobronchitis (kennel cough). The only way to tell for sure is to take her to the vet.
Avatar n tn RECENTLY I TOOK MY DOG TO VET TEETH CLEANING. AFTER THE CLEANING THE VET MY HAD A GROWTH IN THE BACK OF THE HIS MOUTH. I TOLD I HAD NOTICE HAVING PROBLEM CHEWING AND SALLOWING AND THAT HE HAD SNORT OR SNORE WHILE I WALKED HIM AND THAT THIS SLIMEY EXCRETION THAT WOULD DRIP FROM HIS MOUTH. HE TOLD ME I PROBABLY NEEDED A VET SURGEON TO LOOK AT HIM. I WORRIED CRAZY ABOUT THIS. HE GAVE THE NAME SURGEON RUSSELLVILLE. AR. CAN PLEASE TELL ME WHAT THIS COULD POSSIBLY COULD BE?
11195436 tn?1416102826 my question what should i do..
335728 tn?1331414412 Thank you for all your wonderful responses about my dog! I took her to the vet day before yesterday and she has no fever, no lumps that could be felt and she is behaving just like normal. She is eating properly and drinking normally and playing normally. Therefore the vet said we will do the wait and see thing. So far no change but it's only been two days. I don't use a choke chain on any of my dogs and never would for the exact reasons you mentioned.
Avatar n tn That's a tough case since you're dealing with a senior dog. I would think surgery is called for, but there are always worries about anesthesia in a dog that old. While your own vet may be uncomfortable with doing surgery, he's right in trying more palliative measures first. If this growth keeps getting larger, ask your vet for a referral to a specialist. There are plenty of universities with veterinary programs that provide outstanding specialized care - for a price of course.
Avatar n tn Again I would call your vet asap or if she seems really lathargic, dry mouth, gets pale gums, and kindda a sunken-in look in the face I might consider taking her to an ER vet to replace fluids right away and then maybe your vet can find out whats causing the problems. Good luck and I hope your pup is feeling better soon.
