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.
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 My dog seems tbe having some sort of seizure that afftects his breathing when he gets very excited. He starts sounding as if he is trying to clear his throat of something. I don't really know how to describe it but will be taking him to the vet again to ask I asked before and they said it was ok. I will try to get it on tape for the vet but if no one is around to tape it before I go I will take care of him as he seems to be very scared when it happens and wants me to help him.
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 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 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 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 f tn my minpin has a lump in his throat. I took him to a vet two weeks ago and they did a needle asperation and sent it to a lab and it came back as cancer. The vet said if it was her dog she'd give him an x-ray and surgery to remove the lump. Well the cost was to be over a thousand dollars and my dog is 13 1/2 and I don't want him to have to endure surgery.
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 m tn Oh my goodness! I wish I had spotted this question hours ago. If you are still waiting for an answer (let's hope not) -then don't wait any more. No-one here can diagnose your dog. She desperately needs to see a vet. At the very least she wil be seriously dehydrated by now and may need I.V. fluids. It could be Parvo. Call your vet on the telephone before you go there.
Avatar n tn Please take your dog to an emergency vet. She could have been exposed to a toxin, a foreign body, or just has kennel cough. If she has had no improvement under the current therapy regimen than further diagnostics must be performed, including chest X-Rays, blood cultures and more.
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.
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.
Avatar f tn My Jack Russell Terrier, Samson, was diagnosed with Megaesophagus about 7 months ago. He is 5 1/2 years old. I was just wondering if anyone has any tips that can help prevent the food from not sitting in his throat. We feed him little bits of food throughout the day and "rub" him down each time. His bowl is also elevated. My vet said soft or hard dog food doesn't really matter. He had a very bad episode the other night and it just worries me.
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.
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.
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 I have a 11 year old american Esmiko he is a recue dog and his eyes are getting cloudy and his throat is very soft and he has been having liver problems is there anything I can do
Avatar m tn Welcome....Goodness, is your dog vomiting or have diarrhea? Why the Cerenia & fluids? Was this bone cooked or raw? Cooked bones are very dangerous.....Did she eat the whole bone? Did you find any pieces left? How large was the bone compared to your dog? Is your Chihuahua able to poop? That's your clue....From your description, your dog is in incredible pain and doesn't know what to do.......I assume the xray was only of the throat?
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 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 my dog has been quite chesty after being neutered, like she has a cold....why is this.
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?
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.
