129961 tn?1189759434 I give my Poodle cooked Yams daily. She takes her pills with mashed yams & has no idea it's pills. lol Don't overdo giving your dog Pumpkin. I would suggest cooking it though. You never know what parasite gets in Pumpkins or in any raw vegetables. Also, cooked sweet potato is a great treat for dogs, & healthy too. In moderate amounts.
1916673 tn?1420236870 It is common for younger dogs with low PCV levels to have substantial flea infestation or intestinal hookworms, though any problem that causes bloody diarrhea can lead to a low PCV (because younger dogs simply haven’t enough iron stored in their bodies to replace lost blood). In older dogs, the problem might be from an immune system condition, liver disease, bone-marrow disease, cancer or chronic kidney failure.
Avatar n tn I just lost one of my other dogs a week ago, seeing her go though this is just killing me. IS SHE IN PAIN? When she goes through these spells does that mean she cant breath? cause I can hear it in her chest. like a weez. PLEASE help. I'm just at a loss of what to do anymore. But, when she isn't going through these spells she is as happy as can be. Running around like a puppy.
Avatar n tn as this can do permanent damage to the nerve cells in your central nervous system(brain and apinal cord), cardiopulmonary system and smooth muscle in your digestive tract( mainly the large intestine as these are the areas of the body where opiate receptors are widely spread. Tapering as slowly as possible will almost eliminate withdrawal symptoms. Once you stop taking them you will probably feel some withdrawal symptoms so always taper as slowly as possible toward the end. xoxo- D.
Avatar f tn I take phenergan myself for constant nausea, and discovered late in the game that dogs can also take phenergan. It didn't work quite as well as the reglan, but at that point we tried anything we could get our hands on. Over the counter Dramamine for motion sickness can be tried as it is metabolized in the liver - got that info from an ER vet nearby.
685623 tn?1283485207 Cooked poulty bones splinter very easily and can cause obstructions or perforations in the gut. The fatty skin can cause a pet to develop pancreatitis, a very painful inflammation of the pancreas. As we have mentioned many times in the past, don't give grapes or raisins to your dogs, avoid feeding foods that have been excessively salted or that contain onion or garlic powder, and any sweets that contain Xylitol must be kept away from our dogs. Chocolate, of course, should be avoided.
931217 tn?1283484935 Or neutered pets studied in an affluent city may get more veterinary care, and better care in general, than intact dogs roaming loose in a rural area, so differences between the groups in some disease might be due to factors other than neutering. A good scientific study will try to control for such factors and the authors will identify potential problems with their data.
Avatar n tn My mini poodle had Pancreatitis..she woke up in the AM & than went back to sleep all day...she wouldn't eat food. She got up at 5 pm...kept drinking water & kept vomiting a bile like substance...not food...kept repeating it for hours. I thought it was a cold or virus. Than out of nowhere she had a seizure. My little baby was thrashing on her side & knew no-one for 5 min.. I just about had a heart attack myself. We rushed her to the ER Vet & they kept her for 4 days.
793908 tn?1294708709 Sorry people, I made a mistake. Cushings Disease is never cured, unless it's a tumor in the adrenal gland & it's successfully surgically removed. Many dogs cannot survive the surgery. Some do. My Julie's is better..her numbers came back alot better. She will never be cured..she has to stay on Trilostane the rest of her life. Cushings can reek havock on the dogs body & hopefully the meds will get it under control, but it won't cure it. Julie will always have to be tested.
Avatar m tn You are NOT going to have to put Gizymo to sleep. Pancreatitis is extremely common in dogs and it's almost always curable unless it's the necrotizing kind and then it becomes a life-or-death issue. It just seems overwhelming right now. I will keep you both (and Gizymo, too) in my thoughts and prayers and will do anything I can to help.
Avatar m tn The fact that she doesn't want to eat makes me wonder if that's what it is, since pancreatitis makes them feel just plain downright LOUSY. Pancreatitis can also cause the other symptoms that you described her as having, it can make her feel weak and wobbly, and nauseous. I would ask them if they think it's a possibility, because if it is, you need to leap on treatment pretty quickly so that it doesn't become a severe case.
Avatar f tn In some more organic forms, the bark can cause allergic reactions in some people (and presumably in some dogs as well). There is a known risk of abortion in pregnant dogs and it is thought to interfere with some standard medications, so it is important to get veterinary approval is before using.
Avatar n tn Found this: SIBO & B12 Deficiency: EPI's Nasty Companions SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) It's been said that 70% of dogs with EPI also develop a condition called "SIBO.
129422 tn?1222703189 The doctor indicated that in dogs that are prone to pancreatitis that even very small amounts of high fat items could bring about a mild case of pancreatitis---even a potato chip or two (Baxter is only 6 lbs.). I doubt too it was the popcorn. Could have been something he found on the ground or something in the yard -- who knows -- could be none of those things.
386032 tn?1220405038 my year has been very bad as it started with my mom pasting away on my birthday last march, than hospitalized in may for pancreatitis , hospitalized in dec for diverticulistis, i am wasting this energy thinking it could be hiv for a low risk exposure while it could be hundreds of other things. i dont understand it, i am getting counseling but that is going to take time, i for one am tired of taking hiv test and the anxiety that comes along with waiting .
Avatar m tn The only other thing I can think of is Chronic pancreatitis which usually is seen in a lot of patients with SOD. Both can have these same symptoms of pain in the shoulders diarrheah and fat in stool. CP can be caused by hyperlipidemia ( high cholesterol) . With CP you are also going to want to see these same DRs. You could possibly still have a stone stuck in your ducts . They usually look for that with ercp and mrcp. MRCP can miss the small ones.
Avatar f tn After over 15 years, of successful international clinical trials, Calcitriol is still considered experimental in pets. So far the results have been excellent for both dogs and cats. Kidney transplants are a treatment option in extreme cases, and are available at a few veterinary facilities in the US. The College of Veterinary Medicine, in Davis, California has a top notch Kidney Transplant and pet dialysis facility.
Avatar m tn (which ailing kidneys cannot filter, and this waste ends up in the bloodstream, causing other symptoms such as lethargy, nausea, anorexia etc) And also any foods with high Phosphorus content (this isn't so vital if the Blood Phosphorus is not elevated) Now the end of the first month, the vet re-ran her bloodwork, and found her Creatinine and BUN had come down slightly. It was encouraging. The next month, they had come down to the borderline of "normal" and "elevated"....
641243 tn?1235755684 It's the lethargy part that has me worried, in combination with all the other symptoms. I agree with you that your vet is DEFINITELY missing something, but WHAT? Have you taken him for a second opinion? Sometimes you get lucky and end up with a vet who has seen similar symptoms before and at least has a direction to go in for a start. Hopefully someone else reading here will have an idea for you.
Avatar m tn This is such an interesting thread with lots of owners reporting similar problems of moans and groans from their best friends. While in some cases these symptoms may be down to something more serious (in which case the vet is the first point of contact to cancel out other things), it strikes me that many of the dogs are middle-age to older ... and at the ripe old age of 54, I can tell you I do exactly the same thing when I sit down, get up or start moving after a while of being in one position.
1561423 tn?1324428500 At this point she suspected ingestion of a toxin, an abdominal obstruction, or a remote possibility could also be a back injury, since these symptoms could indicate pain and he is part dachshund. She did tell me that, in the event that it was an obstruction, something made of rubber or certain other materials would not show up on xray due to them being the same density as the tissue. Turns out that all images were normal, but showed some accumulation of fluid in the abdomen.
6839387 tn?1385681693 It is normal for most of us. Typically a dogs kidneys are 75% destroyed, before any symptoms start to become obvious. Like you, I just thought my dog was getting older, and starting to lose control over her bladder. Because of my experience with my own dog, I now recommend that all senior dogs should have annual blood testing to assess kidney and liver functions. You are doing a wonderful job, you are providing the best care you can.
Avatar f tn We would all want them to die peacefully in their sleep, but this is not always the case. I have read many peoples posts on kidney failure in their dogs. Most people say that when their dog stops eating, The time is near. Watch for increasing signs and symptoms. I pray that she will go peacefully in her sleep, but if this is not the case, I am sure you will know when it is time to let her go. My heart goes out to you.... ( My lovely little yorkie..TwoBits had kidney failure.
544292 tn?1268886268 I got an email this morning from my Mother who says she's coming here in September? I can't even think that far in advance. I'm thinking stuff like, "I have to brush my hair and take a shower." It seems like an insurmountable prospect! I have such respect for anyone who has come off Tramadol and .... I don't know ... maintained a life? Mud mud mud everywhere. Walking thru mud. I just took vitamins and a big cup of Lecithin granules which are supposed to decrease anxiety.
Avatar m tn Do you have any other symptoms? Parasitic infection such as toxoplasmosis that you get from dogs and cats can make your spleen enlarge, Some bacterial infections, Rheumatoid arthritis, injury during contact sports, a cyst (but they would have seen that on the ct) and then there are the scary things like leukemia and lymphoma. Have you had a complete blood count? If so was it normal? So if normal then it probably isn't leukemia or lymphoma. You would normally see this on the blood test.
Avatar m tn It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer. My dog was knocked flat by the loading dose and barely moved for the first couple of days. He bumped into objects, seemed blind, responded to sounds incorrectly (looked in the wrong direction), tripped, stumbled, and fell flat on his stomach a few times when trying to walk.
Avatar f tn It developed quickly to ice cold feet with pain, she was in wool socks, long underwear, down jackets at home, under covers. (We live in California -with mild winters). The cold feet would change colors -purple, bluish, sometimes yellow/orange too. I could always tell when her feet would start to go cold again or hurt - she would get a red rash on her cheeks. That foot pain turned into pins/needles and she was in a wheelchair by the end of November. Fever was always low-grade by this point.
Avatar f tn My 13-year old male toy poodle had symptoms of lethargy, anorexia, panting, hind legs weakness, gastrointestinal problems, vomiting, hair thinning, poor eye sight, enarged heart, and other symptoms suggestive of thyroid problems as I found out after his death. The vets in Alabama were unable to diagnose and they referred me to an internist for an ultrasound.
Avatar n tn When you ingest lots of sugar while your pancreas cannot properly provide your body with insulin and at the same time drink alcohol which stops your liver from releasing glucose into the bloodstream, your blood sugar levels decrease causing hypoglycemia and acute pancreatitis. Symptoms, including diarrhea and others similar to a typical hangover, take several days to subside.
Avatar n tn I also have symptoms of parasites and I found that like 80% of people in the US have some form of parasites in them. So, I ordered a parasite/colon cleanse and will do that for 2 months and see what happens. It's called, the worlds best parasite cleanse or something, here's a link where I bought it http://cgi.ebay.com/BEST-INTERNAL-COLON-PARASITE-CLEANSING-ONE-2mth-PACK_W0QQitemZ110068953351QQihZ001QQcategoryZ67555QQcmdZViewItem.
