Common Questions and Answers about Vomiting and excessive thirst in dogs


2186126 tn?1384961026 My beagle/dachshund mix is almost 10 and was diagnosed with atypical Cushing's at around 4 years old in it's early stages after she experienced excessive thirst and frequent urination. We started with natural treatments at the recommendation of our vet - melatonin & flaxseed capsules. She did not really improve and this went on for several years.
1963554 tn?1325451090 It is completely heart wrenching when their time comes to leave us, just as with human friends and family that we lose over time. In the end, all we can do is offer our dogs all the reassurance, love and attention they deserve and be as kind and humane as we possibly can. They need us to be strong and do the right thing ... regardless of how much it hurts us, it's one of the many responsibilities of being a good owner. My heart goes out to you. Give Shaggy an extra hug from me.
Avatar n tn I have to wait to have the conclusive stomach biopsy results before any removal and biopsy of the tiny growth. I know that primary stomach cancer is very rare in dogs, especially young dogs, so we are just at a loss for answers. Thank-you.
Avatar f tn There was a long list of plants toxic for dogs online which I found once but did not keep. I'll try and find it again and post back. In the meantime -get her to the vet quickly.
Avatar n tn The problems usually seen with chocolate toxicity are agitation or excitement, nervousness, trembling, vomiting and diarrhea, excessive thirst, excessive urination, muscle spasms, seizures, and others. Swollen lymph nodes are not related to chocolate toxicity. Dogs can be allergic to chocolate, which can cause swelling of the throat (lymph nodes), and, irritation and inflammation of the upper respiratory system.
Avatar f tn The vomiting is so awful to watch in the end as it just goes on and on and on... There are many anti emetic meds to try. Has your vet not prescribed anything? Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end.
Avatar n tn I have always been very in control and dependant and then these panic attacks started. I just finished my 2nd pack of pills and that is the only thing that I have done different. The attacks came within the 1st wk or so of starting the pack.,so I have no idea how long before they go away. My OBYGN thinks that there is something more physcological going on with me but I am telling all who reads this that it is this PILL YAZ!!!!
Avatar n tn My first thought was- what the heck is going on- I have this bad sinus infection , on meds for that for 20 days- it never goes away- was told to take celexa- (which I took at the same time as the anti-biotic)- and then started having attacks, tingling in my fingers and toes, and then I am being sent to a pyschologists? for anxiety or panic disorder.??? I really hope you get better and I did go to chiropractor ( I have not been in a few months though)...maybe I should go back for a visit.
Avatar m tn It's now day 5 and we haven't had any problems with vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, lack of appetite, excessive thirst or excessive urination. We have a follow up tomorrow with a different vet and we are hopeful for better results. I too was extremely curious why a doctor would embroider MBA on his lab coat. To me it seems in EXTREMELY bad taste and it doesn't seem like it would gain him any credibility with his paying customers.
Avatar f tn ) wouldn't give the dog to them and said they were mistreating the dog and he would fight in court to not let them have her, they walked away and although she was sick for a long time, she got better and lived with the vet. Dogs are like people in that they get too old to reproduce even though they can still go into heat. Just don't do it. It takes a horrible toll on the poor old body. Get one of the fixed.

1201929 tn?1293711672 Chronic dehydration has become a commonplace and undiagnosed condition. One becomes dehydrated long before thirst sets in. In fact, dry mouth is the last sign of dehydration.

Recommended Dosage: A minimum of six to eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn Mary Thanks for your support and kindness I'm in agreement with you in that your mother-in-law needs to know the truth. However, the liver has remarkable reserve (some people don't even show symptoms until it's 90% damaged), and I know of many who are still alive today who really should'nt be. I would imagine a transplant would be out of the question, unless she is rich and/or famous.
Avatar f tn Hypercalcaemia will almost certainly produce muscle spasms (are these the quivers you refer to), but also can cause seizures, increased thirst, excessive urination, vomiting, fatigue and weakness. The problem of course is many of these secondary symptoms are similar to those of many CKDF dogs, so you may not identify them as particularly relevant.
1358341 tn?1282213443 Research also shows that even very high protein diets do not make renal failure worse in cats (although high protein does worsen the disease in dogs and humans). (One pet food maker recently completed a study it claims shows that its restricted-protein diet increases lifespan in CRF cats. However, because the study has not yet been published, it is impossible to evaluate the data, which is contradicted by other research.
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 f tn Long-term “chronic” kidney disease referred to as chronic renal disease is the most common form in dogs and cats. It is usually the result of slow age-related deterioration of the kidneys. Signs of Pet Kidney Disease Initially dogs and cats drink and urinate excessively. The urine produced is dilute so dogs become dehydrated and drink a lot to try to replace the lost fluids. No matter how much they drink; they are unable to maintain normal hydration.
Avatar m tn Get some baby gates and put him some place safe (we blocked our dog in the kitchen). Laminated fabric is also handy to have. And hang in there! It will pass, and you'll get your friend back within a month.
Avatar f tn I just want to say again that she does not have excessive thirst at all. In fact, just the opposite as she basically stopped drinking water. And was eating only half her normal food amount. Now she is almost forced to drink because I am turning her dry food into a soup so she has to drink it up to get to e food, therefore keeping her hydrated. In any case, we are going to the vet today, no doubt, to have blood taken. Thanks.
495284 tn?1333897642 Prayers for your boy, Sarah the symptoms for diabetes are excessive thirst and frequent urination so I'm not suprised by the litter box. Check Walmart for the best prices in the pharmacy by far!
203342 tn?1328740807 Like for instance, when my husband or teenagers come in through the door, he will bark and continue to bark at them even after they're in and he can see who it is. They usually have to pet him and reassure him before he stops barking. Then he'll wag his tail and relax. He even barks sometimes when someone comes up from the downstairs basement. I don't want to think about putting him to sleep unless I know he's really suffering. Right now, he's acting ok. I hope you dog will be ok too.
Avatar m tn weird cramping, especially in the intercostal muscles (in the ribs), abdomen and sometimes the thighs. These aren't just regular cramps, they are super hard cramps that hurt worse than any cramps I'd ever had before, and the pain lingers for days from the damage they cause. I also have tingling in the fingers on both hands, and weird sensations in my shoulders, upper arms and thighs.
Avatar n tn She also has been treated and diagnosed with severe migraines and is on topomax. She was nausa and vomiting for 6 months straight anywhere from 4-6 times a day straight. Shes been through so much at such a young age any info would help . I hope this helps all of you as well.
Avatar n tn Did you get any medical diagnosis yet? I gained 22 pounds in 4 days and we have ruled out failing kidneys and heart problems and my doctor is clueless.
1554262 tn?1374243601 Mine starts with kind of a burning in my stomach and then it even goes into my neck and jaw and chest and the pain is horrible. I always have a bottle of water with me anywhere I am, even church. It's the only way to relieve it. I had a bad one last night. I live in fear that one of these days the water won't work. I can't find anyone who knows what it is but I am glad I'm not alone in this.
363682 tn?1299492962 This all started after I got sick while in vacation drinking in Europe. One illness, and I've been alcohol intolerant and ear congestion. My doctor gave up, but he never tried allergy tests.
Avatar n tn I am only guessing, but if you have any fears about handling it this way, that she may hate you or be very, very angry because she knows you are behind it, Yes, it may happen. But I can assure you that once she is in and is getting counseling and off from the drug, she will realize that what you have done was the greatest gift of love that one could give. She will Tiffany....I promise you.
Avatar n tn I would like to start the hcg shots soon. I live in NJ and I can't find a clinic in this state. There are a couple of questions I have. 1. On what website can I buy the hcg from? 2. Are most people following a 500 or 800 vlcd? 3. Are dieters washing their hair? Please answer "yes". 4. What are some of the menu options? I've read the Simeon's manuscript already.
