We took him to a vet nearby and he suggested that it could be a heart condition which has led to kidney malfunctioning. he has given some diuretic tablets and advised us to give him potassium rich foods. Before giving the tablets, his urine had a dark brown colour, but since the medication has started it has turned a little lighter.
Avatar f tn He is 3 years old, a german and australian shepherd mix. He has not been fixed because one vet says that he has a heart mumur and the price was outrageous!! The other vet said he didn't have one but it was still the same price. I looked into Humane Ohio but they need proof from the vet he doesn't have a heart murmur. But now we don't have the money so... that's where we are now.

Avatar n tn I have a 3 year old male German Shepherd who is very active. We take him swimming 4 times a week and a walk for an hour per day. He has been perfectly healthy. Suddenly he is limping off his right hind leg. There are no cuts,swelling,etc...Just a pretty bad limp for the past 2 days. This morning, it looks as though it has worsened. Can anyone out there give me some type of prognosis as to what this may be ?
Avatar f tn I have a german shepherd dog since he was 2 months and now is 17 months. Last month went to the vet for check up routine. She said he is underweight. 21kg for his age was not satisfactory. prescribed some vitamins. He always looks well and is running and jumping in the yard almost all day long. I hate to lock it in his small house, because he is friend of the kids around and I love to see him playing free. Any suggestion to bring him to 30kg as suggested by the vet? Is it the right weight?

Avatar n tn My 10 year old german shepherd started limping. The vet assumed because of her age that she has arthritis and prescribed Rimadyl. It didn't help plus I have read bad things about what this drug can do to a dog. I was petting her the yesterday and noticed that on one side it feels as if two bones are there and maybe come apart. It does not feel this way on the other side.
Avatar f tn My german shepherd is 11 months old. She started not eating 3 days ago. All she does is drink water and then vomit it back up. She is not going #2 either. Someone told me to give her a de-worming medicine so I did but still not getting better. I cant afford to take her to the vet. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on with her.

Avatar n tn Deutscher Schäferhund), also known as an Alsatian or just the German Shepherd, is a breed of large-sized dog that originated in Germany. In Europe during the 1800s, attempts were being made to standardise breeds. The dogs were bred to preserve traits that assisted in their job of herding sheep and protecting flocks from predators.
Avatar m tn Cysco, my mixed Great Pyrenees and German Shepherd, was diagnosed with Mitral Valve Disease (heart disease) in May 2016 when hospitalized at a cost of $2,800. His life expectancy is 1 to 2 years. He takes 5 pills in the morning and 5 pills in the evening. Once a month we visit the cardiologist who drains about 5 cups of fluid from his chest cavity for over $350. The diuretic has him constantly drinking water and urinating.
