2000619 tn?1327422820 i have a 7-8 year old male jack russell hes a rescue and we have had him 2 years next month. We tuck him for a check up when we got him and the vet said he had a heart mumer, just lately around mid after noon he starts to shake and he lies down with his bottom in the air and his heart pumping funnily and this goes on for ages then when we get up in the morning hes fine and running around like a mad dog...
Avatar f tn You might want to talk to the breeder about returning him or if he came from a pet store find the nearest jack russell breed rescue group in your area. Or take him to a really good puppy class where the instructors can help and support you.
Avatar f tn Hi, just wondering if you found out what this was as my puppy which is a chihuahua cross jack Russell has the same thing under her eyelid she is 9 weeks old and I'm not sure whether to be concerned or not. As I am really worried in case its something bad?
Avatar f tn Thank you Margot49 and Skydnsr for your advice. I did search my yard completely. I also look up my puppy breed (Mini-iltian grey-hound and jack russell) which I'm the owner of both. Yes, I believe he did have a heart problem. I'm to have his body check by a vet. Since it's only one left of my jack russell litter, I'm going to take the one I gave my mom check. The hardest part was telling my God-Baby who artisic her puppy past...we both cried.

506570 tn?1215836300 I just took my 7 week old Alaskan Malamute puppy for his first vet heck and vaccination. The vet listened to his heart and immediatly told me he suspected a heart murmur. He comment that is was only slight and wanted me to bring him back a couple of days later to let the other vet who works there give a second opinion. Upon a second opinion, the other vet confirmed a heart murmur. I was not given a grade for the murmur.

Avatar n tn My beloved dog Bobby an 8.5 year old Jack Russell was put to sleep 3 weeks ago, he had a heart condition going back a while, heart murmur and an enlarged heart he was on medication for life. 4 weeks ago we noticed he was drinking excessively, we took him to the vets to be told he had diabetes, we were given a cd to study over the weekend on how to give him his insulin etc. He started to vomit excessively over that weeken also, he just wanted a drink constantly but then was sick shortly after.

Avatar f tn Black tarry poop usually means there is bleeding higher up in the GI tract. For instance in her stomach, possibly. She needs to see a vet for a thorough examination. Like BluCrystal said, do take a sample with you. It will save time. Parvo is a possibility. But there could be other causes of course. She may need a few tests.
1368591 tn?1278190872 Our 4 1/2 month old Jack Russell Terrier became lethargic, and started vomiting blood. After days of tests, x-rays, ultrasounds, and a couple of specialists-it was determined that young 'J.D.' has a Intrahepatic shunt. The specialist who conducted his ultrasound writes: " The vessel ratios are similar to those published in a case series of dogs with intrahepatic shunts, and significantly higher than the ratios seen in dogs with extrahepatic shunts or microvascular dysplasia.
Avatar n tn I would like to know what these pinkish rash spots I am seeing on my 10 month old Jack russell puppy could be? There are some on the sides of his stomach and look a little scabby. And he is biting at them. And there are some pinkish spots under his arms and under chin.
Avatar n tn I recieved a jack russell puppy 2 weeks ago and we did change her diet. She has been to the vet for tests for worms and to get vaccinated. Now we are having some peoblems with her pooping. She is pooping a little. But the poos are hard and black. (easy clean up for me) But I am concerned that we are not giving her enough fiber and shes not comfortable.And I am unsure as to how to give her more fiber. (she is eating and drinking fine.
Avatar m tn I just lost my Jack Russell Terrier, Jaxie Ray, to congestive heart failure. We put her to sleep (euthanized) this morning. She shared 12 wonderful years with us.
Avatar f tn I have an 8 week old puppy that was diagnosed with a grade 1 heart murmur at 7 weeks. My initial vet did not give me a grade for the murmur and basically told me my pup was no good and had no hope. I found a new vet. At the time, the first vet estimated the cost of visiting a cardiologist would be between $200 and $300. I am in Australia. I am sure if you called around to some animal cardiologists in your area they could give you an estimate. Good luck. I hope all goes well.
Avatar f tn If your Jack Russell has had his shots, there is a much better chance that the puppy will pick something up along the way. His immune system has nothing to help it right now since he's no longer getting protection from the antibodies in his mother's milk and he hasn't had shots to help him set up his own immunities to diseases. Seven weeks is FAR too young for a chihuahua to be leaving its litter, too.
Avatar f tn I have a jack Russell mix,(2yrs old) the dad is a yorkie. she has been panting heavily for about 12 hours on and off, she is in a dark quiet place, and I am not sure how long before she gives birth to a puppy?? She has been very restless, she has had some discharge, and there is milk present, not dripping, but there. this is our first time breeding any of our dogs. I am somewhat prepared, but nervous just the same.
Avatar n tn I have a 5 year old jack russell and the other day he stopped going up and down any stairs. He won't jump on the sofa like he used to do also. I stretched his legs and checked his hips and he didn't cry like something is hurting him. He is in a crate during the day. He used to be so energetic and now doesn't seem like tht anymore. He also seems to be shaking. Please Help !
Avatar m tn I have a 2 yr old Jack Russell with terrible looking nails. They are looking rotten and hardly grow. Lately he has been lickng them constantly. He has had a couple in recent months that have split on him, and got very painful and eventually we could pull the broke part off. Now the past few days he has become sedentary, and not acting himself, and his breath has become foul. What to do.
