675347 tn?1365460645 I just made up this song today while I was walking with Misty. It's a pity you can't hear me sing the music (or a relief perhaps??) Misty tolerated this politely. I know a man who had a three-legged-dog Used to go and sit by the river When it was cold that three-legged-dog Used to sit by the river and shiver I went up to the three-legged-dog Said "would you like to come with me?

I made her stay outside for 2 weeks, she could eat out by the apartment, but couldn't come in to see me at all. The maid would shush her out with the broom when she tried to come in the house. I fed her over by the apartment where she could eat in peace & not be bothered by the dog. I'd sit & talk to her when I brought the food.
Avatar n tn If the vet said you should use it then yes, but even when you apply it in the ear it's absorbed and reachs the blood. I'd say wait and ask the vet, maybe just one drop has more drug that your dog can take...just call him on the phone and ask, it's better than spending more money if it happens to be bad for the dog!
Avatar f tn anyhow, almost immediately he was back to his 3 legged walking (not putting weight on his leg). maybe he had some adrenaline going at the vet office because he gets terribly nervous when he goes there. that is the only reason i can think of that he was suddenly "ok" for a few moments while there. i read on the computer about "osteosarcoma" and am now really scared! what do you think his odds are that he could have that?
1315134 tn?1273983687 It would be worth getting the opinion of a board certified veterinary surgeon, there are several at UGA and in Atlanta (www.acvs.org). Congenital growth deformities occasionally occur in puppies, and sometimes surgery can correct defects. Amputation is also an option, and 3 legged dogs do great, they do not even miss the 4th leg. You can go to You Tube and search "3 legged dog" to see them in action for yourself.
Avatar f tn As a bit of trivia, in 1999 (I believe), the AKC voted to recognize the breed as an official AKC breed and the name was changed from the Jack Russell Terrier to the Parson Russell Terrier. Why, I have no idea, I just know that it was changed. :) How much are you feeding your guy? Does he get exercise on a daily basis or is he a couch potato? JRTs (I know, I know, but even with the name change, old habits die hard! LOL!) are FAMOUS for being wonder agility dogs.
Avatar n tn t sound all that old, but since not all breeds have the same life expectancy it depends on the breed whether or not the dog is actually a senior dog at this point. Senior dogs are prone to all sorts of ailments, just like senior people.
Avatar n tn The only way to tell for sure is to have a vet look at it. It's impossible to tell what it could be simply from your description of it. Dogs do develop lipomas (fatty tumors) in the area that your dog has the lump, but it could also be something else, so it's best to be safe and have your vet check it out. He may or may not want to do a biopsy to make sure that whatever he thinks it is is correct.
Avatar m tn If properly and promptly treated the fin should grow back just fine and more importantly the oscar will survive. Finrot can be fatal! If there are no signs of infection or damage and the fish is simply missing a fin, I'm guessing it is a birthdefect, or a loss due to an old injury? In which case, the sweetie will be forever finless, but if he is acting just fine and can swim and forage adaquately you are very lucky to have a unique fish.
Avatar m tn The side effects of the drug include poor appetite, lethargy, diarrhea, dyspnea, azotemia, weakness, and ataxia. Therefore the symptoms could be connected. I would absolutely take your dog to see the vet as soon as possible, as this is quite a complex drug which must only be given to dogs with properly diagnosed heart fallure. It should not be given to dogs under 6 months of age, to pregnant or lactating dogs and certain forms of cardiac disease.
Avatar n tn Hey, pookie. This is coming from a VERY satisfied and starving woman. I am eating a chili dog as we speak. Yumm. The sex, not the hot dog, although that's good too. Of course you're starving, dopey! If it was glowingly satisfying, then you put out some energy. If it wasn't, then you're disgruntled and want some comforting. Of course, I'm a chick and I may just have spilled the beans, lol.
765439 tn?1292960414 s not cancer -big relief and no more worry. If it is -then the lump has gone, and like I said, if it was cancer, and the lump came off while it was still small, it may well not have had time to get worse or spread. The thing is, you're scared. Plus the fact that you may have heard bad stories about some vets that make you unable to trust. See if you can do some research to find the BEST small animal vet in your area, or even if you have to travel a few miles.
Avatar dr m tn The summer heat can lead to countless outdoor & indoor dangers. In my next news letter, we talk about how to help pets terrified of thunderstorms, about the dangers of antifreeze, and about heatstroke and several related problems. Today, I'd like to go over some vital information on antifreeze. The green fluid contains ethylene glycol, which has a sweet taste and is appealing to pets. It is extremely toxic (read: deadly), even in very small amounts.
Avatar f tn Your doctor will recommend a plan that he/she feels is appropriate for you and your dog. No question the 6 kg must be lost, as unneeded extra weight often contributes to ruptured cruciate ligaments int he first place. Further, after surgery your dg will be 3-legged lame for 10 -1 4 days and the opposite hind leg will be at increased risk of ligament injury because it will be carrying more weight than usual.
Avatar f tn my friends dogs started having very itchy skin all over and there hair is falling out also on the bald spots its bleeding and scabs my friend said they were ok into a new dog came to the ranch w the same symphtoms and later died now her puppies are balding every were face *** well any ideas of what this might be
Avatar f tn I think I am missing Gabriella, and the dogs are driving me crazy. I don't like the messy house it needs to be remodled outside. Have a big lump in my throat.
Avatar n tn Unless you want a 3-legged crippled dog who is constantly in pain, you need to find a way to do the surgery. It really is amazing what that surgery can do for your dog. Ours was quite the athlete and we never imagined we would see her back on all fours much less leaping at the frisbee just as she did before the injury. One thing you need to be aware of is that rehab is very important - just like it is for humans.
Avatar n tn We have a 6 month old mini longhair dachshund. It has a limp on the right leg while walking. It doesn't yelp or slow down its play activity, and has no qualms about running or chasing. It doesn't appear to have any sensitive areas, no problems with touching any area. At a recent vet visit (to be neutered), the vet didn't see any problem. The only observation is that the dog is "bow legged" and the right foot/leg appears to be turned out more.
1868280 tn?1320165473 I question them because I know that if I were in that situation with my dog, I would be rushing to the vet no matter what the cost. Unfortunately...there are so many people who do not have the financial means to care for their pets when an emergency arrives, and with todays technology, the internet seems quicker and cheaper...and some help is better than none....My heart goes out to not only the owners of these pets, but also the pets themselves...
Avatar n tn It was rock hard at first but now can be slightly manipulated. It seems like the disc right next to the lump is bulging a little. The dog seems unaffected when I check him over and add pressure. He shows no pain with no whimpering and has no issues with movement or sleep. I'm not sure if this is unrelated or not but the dog is now chewing relentlessly at his tail and hindend. He has had problems with allergies to fleas in the past where he chews himself raw.
