      My dog ate some rasins and soon after threw them up and had diarrhea and when she threw up again it was clear liquid. They say to bring her in but I need a honest opion…if she threw them up would she be OK?

    • Amber says:

      My cat has a black tiny sore lump thing on his head. What is it?

      • lisa says:

        Sounds like a tick to me.
        You can take a cotton ball and put a glob of hand sanitizer on it, then hold on the tick for a good 10 minutes or more, then when you slowly take the cotton ball away, the tick will be on the cotton, unable to get off.
        It suffocates them so they will unlatch and be on the cotton.

      1.5 year old bulldog has scratch in eye, vet gave us some ointment, I put in 2 small drops as recommended now she won’t open her eye. Is this normal?

    • Dani says:

      My male boxer puppy is acting very strange. He normally eats very well, behaves very well too. Well today we fed him his normal food, at the same amount, and after he ate he started begging, whining and being very loud for more food. We tried to ignore the begging, but it’s been an hour and he hasn’t stopped. When he comes over to beg we put him back on the floor and he runs over to his food bowl and starts whining again. He has never done this before. We have tried playing with him, giving him water, and taking him outside but nothing seems to stop him from crying. When he falls asleep he wakes up about ten minutes later and starts whining again.

    • Annie Garcia says:

      American Bulldog
      7 years old
      Cartersville, Ga.
      ~My dog has excessive drooling (leaves puddles and drool constantly hanging off of his mouth in long thick strands) fatigue, lethargy, weight loss but eats well, difficulty walking, climbing, and cannot jump, foul odor, horrible breath, ulcers around face (eyes and nose area) and hind legs with hair loss that will not heal, the ones by the nose are swollen so they are bumpy, heavy panting, stays in his bed all day, chronic red eye and pus in the eyes. Please help me by telling me what you think it could be and where I could take him that will be affordable. I’m on disability and do not work. He has a lot of the signs pointing to cancer except he eats well but has lost about 30 pounds. You can see his bones. I look forward to your input. Thank you so much!

      We just had a cat have a litter of kittens and abandoned on kitten she is about 3 to 6 weeks we feed her kitten formula with a syringe how many times a day do I need to feed her?

  2. Liz Martinez says:

    My sister and her husband bought a yorkie for their 3 year old.

    Although their daughter says she loves her “puppy”, she doesn’t seem to know how to play with the dog. She holds on too tightly, pulls the dogs ears and fur, etc. The dog constantly tries to bite her. The dog isn’t innocent either–she grabs my niece’s toys and chews them.

    How can the family teach their 3 yr old and teach the dog to live together and the right way to play?

    • Maritza Angeles says:

      In this case what you should do is put the puppy on punishment when he/she tries to bite the six year old! my daughter use to do this with a 6 week year old shih tzu/poodle when the 6 week old puppy tried to bite we put the puppy on punishment and we taught our 6 year old to be gentle

  3. Kala says:

    my cat is licking a rusty metal trash can and concrete blocks. He eats hard cat food. He threw up his cat food and it was not even broke down.

    • Rebecca says:

      1) I would try to get your kitty not to lick rust, even though it’s a funny thing for it to be licking 2) it’s a good thing she threw up, just as long as it stops. Most cats do not chew their food, or may crush once before swallowing. it’s very common to see whole prices of food in a kitties throw up. Usually this will happy once in a while

    We have an older Beagle (14+ years) who has recently started going into the bedroom and barking a single bark. He will switch to a different bedroom and do the same. It seems that he wants us to come to where he is at but I am wondering if there is something wrong. Is he in pain or just being a pain?

    Hello Dr.

    My name is Maria. I have a 3 mons old female persian cat given by my relative. It’s her second day in my house and I notice that she always hide under my bed. I don’t know what to do to her, I don’t want her to hide there every single day. It makes me sad. Please help. I will bring her to her first vet visit next week. Thank you.

  9. A Foster says:

    Our one year old lab is having symptoms of listlessness, pain, fever, high white blood cell count, fever, weight loss and dehydration. Initially she was given antibiotics and pain medication and she began to improve but about two days later she declined again. She was seen by Dr. Shulz at Companion Pet two additional times and was given more antibiotics, tape worm meds (even though fecal test was negative for worms) and pain medication. We changed her diet to boneless skinless chicken breast, rice, peas, and cottage cheese. She immediately improved after the diet change but, sadly she began to decline again. Over the last three weeks she has lost a lot of weight and is beginning to look like a skeleton. We have spent hundreds on medical bills just trying to find an answer. Through ought all of this she is eating, drinking, pooping, and peeing normally. She only vomited once in the first week of showing symptoms. Blood test was normal except for high white blood cell count. Kidney and liver functions showed normal. X rays showed nothing of concern. Aja continues to suffer in pain, and we feel helpless. Our next step is to take her to a specialist, which is going to be much more costly but our only goal is to help Aja feel better.

  10. Jennifer says:

    I am the owner of an 8 year old beagle. Over the last 6 weeks I noticed she began losing a lot of weight, had discharge, had some bloody discharge, lost her appetite, and will squat multiple times to releave herself outside. We took her to the vet where they tried 2 different types of antibiotics hoping it would fight off a Urinary Tract Infection. After neither one worked, a urine culture was taken and it did not show any signs of an infection. We then took her to get an ultra sound of her lower abdomen where they think they found some inflamed lymph nodes around her bladder. The vet now thinks she could have lymphoma but is not really sure at all. The next step is to get a chest X-ray to see if there is any swelling up there and to take a blood test. My question is, based on this information, what could be my dog’s diagnosis and what else can we do to conclude on one? We are really hoping it is not cancer…she seems too young to show these extreme signs for cancer over a short 6 week span. Please help

  11. Star says:

    7-8yr old Dachshund,female nearly 8 wks ago wasn’t producing any red blood cells. the vet charged us $1,500 just to diagnose what “could/maybe” be a problem. Then, prescribed narcotics that causes her to not have an appetite for dry or wet food. On her follow-up, vet visit, she made a complete 180 after receiving a blood transfusion (she did not reject it). She has made a complete recovery and we want to keep it that way!! =D

    1) Recommendations on a particular brand of dog food (dry or wet)?
    2) is peanut butter a good source of protein intake and is it safe for her?
    3) Recommendations on walk-time or bowel movement?
    4) Recommendations on Calcium and Iron Intake?
    5)Solution(s) for depressed dogs, of this breed.
    6) should she mate and reproduce?

    Please offer any and all advice, that will benefit this special fighter!!

  12. Nick says:

    My husky mixed with golden retriever is 15 years old. I let her outside to go to the bathroom and within an hour she developed a lump under her right eye. She still eats and drinks with our problems. She also has fleas and they over ran her and is losing hair, but she won’t let me bathe her. What should I do?

    • Troy says:

      Try taking the poor thing to a vet and get flea treatment. Then take it to a groomer.

    • Dr A.Jones says:

      Take her to the vet it might not be anything but at the same time it could be life threatening I can’t stress this enough take her to the vet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Steven says:

    I have a puppy who has not had his kennel cough vaccine, my dogs at home have had all their vaccines. Is it safe for them to be around each other?

  14. Christel Arguijo says:

    We have a 7 year old Golden Retriver, suddenly a couple of weeks ago, she became listless and stopped eating.We took her to the vet after two days. A basic exam was done that showed no abnormalities, she was injected fluids, given special diet food and anti vomiting medication and a blood test next day showed elevated calcium and other markers showing possible kidney disease . An ultrasound was performed and it didn’t show serious damage to any of the digestives organs other that some inflammation and slightly enlarged spleen. She was prescribed amoxillin 500MG and prednisolone 5MG during the time she was taking the medicine she became her normal self and a second blood test showed normal functions except for some hippo thirodal function that the doctor decided not to medica at this time. A day or two after the antibiotics were finished, she started to eat less and less, still drinking a lot of water. She is not finished with the steroids, she takes one every three day.
    Can you pleas give me a second opinion from the information I gave you? We are very worried about her and don’t want to overlook anything. Should we suggest and X-ray or perhaps an MRI?
    Thank you for your valuable input.


    • Christel Arguijo says:

      This is Christel and I just want to let know tha I am not impressed by your site. First you offer free advice, not true, then you pretend to have a vet standing by so that I give you my credit card and then you also let me know that I will be charged $ 20 if I like your effort or $ 5.00 if I don’t.


  15. Maddie says:

    My cat just tried to run outside and we had to run and grab her. She was very frightened and ran into the bushes, she was hissing and peed herself. We’ve had her inside for about half an hour now and we noticed that her left eye is a little droopy. I’m wondering if she is just stressed or if this is cause for concern? Thank you.

  16. Johnny says:

    Hello :)
    My cat has developed an unstable posture in the past 48 hours. At first he seemed a bit unstable in the rear part of the body, then i noticed he wouldn’t jump. It seems like he won’t put all of his weight on one of the rear legs.

    he is 7 YO.
    in the past 2 days:
    – normal appetite.
    – no lethargy
    – no apathy
    – no apparent pain
    – no local tenderness or warmth or swolleness
    – no lacerations or foreign bodies found.

    since he doesn’t seem ill I wanted to ask for your advice. what should i do?

  17. Tracey says:

    Hi Doc,
    Our 7 year old male cat has been having diarrhea for 6 months. We have taken him to the local vets,with no help. They can’t find anything that will be causing the issue. His blood work comes back normal. The next step is for special intestines doc that is way out of our price range. What can we do to help our pet so we don’t him to sleep.

    • Deanna Ming says:

      This is late advice, but hear goes- the food you give your pet can cause diarrhea. I recommend Diamonds dry cat food, can be found at Hollywood Feed for a reasonable price. Hope things are better!

  18. stephanie says:

    hi my 9 years old rabbit has an abscess below his mouth. he is still eating, moving, pooping, drinking normaly. surgery would cost allot of money and he might not make it alive thru surgery if we decide that’s what would be best. we’ve been putting hot compresses and coconut oil on it but we are not sure if it’s working. he hasn’t been showing sighs of pain. please help! thank you!

    • pritha ghosh says:

      give it a chewable toy. but some anti flea powder which is bitter in taste. apply it on his legs. he will not lick any more.

  21. pritha ghosh says:

    I have a female pet dog (Labrador) of 8 years old. She had tumours in her 3-4 nipples for one and a half months. Her veterinarian doctor told us to go for a surgery. We did so. Now, after one week of the surgery I have noticed that her front right and rear legs are swollen up. Her chest is also having a soft bulging appearance. Her doctor said that she might have mammary cancer. But he hasn’t done any tests to get a confirmation. Can you tell me; are these symptoms really the symptoms of cancer?
    She has normal diet and normally active. The doctor did a chest x-ray before surgery. There was nothing to worry about. The area of surgery is not swelled up. She is licking too much on the surgery portion.

  22. Joslyn says:

    Hello, I have an 8 month Malshi and he is shaking, having a little red discharge from the nose, he is very lethargic, swollen eyes and he has been resting on my bed for a long time and he drinks a lot of water. Could this be a fever or something?

  32. That’s nice that you can go online to get these answers. I have a tendency to not think of my questions until after we leave offices like that. Also, being able to get a second opinion without paying for more tests at another vet’s office.

  33. Kelly says:

    My six month out basset hound has a cherry eye that we are planning on having it surgically fixed. Our vet is suggesting doing both eyes, even though only one has a cherry eye. I’m concerned about doing surgery on an eye that it not exhibiting the problem. Would like a second opinion.

He’s not quite as peppy as usual but he likes to run on our walks. My concern is..could he have eaten something that is blocking his intestines (like an old gummy rawhide piece)? He doesn’t seem in pain..just moves slower.

  44. Clara says:

    I have a question. A stray cat from my neighborhood gave birth to three surviving kittens in my backyard yesterday. A friend who lives 20min away offered to take them all in! The queen is extremely friendly, every time I go to check on her she comes out for attention. She has also let me hold all three of her kittens without getting upset. My question is: should I wait before moving the cats, or does it not matter? Will there be negative consequences if I drive them over to a new environment? Should I wait until the kittens are older?

    • katrina says:

      i think you should wait because if you move them the mom might get mad and stop feeding them and than they will die & my cat had babies outside and it was cold out so i moved them inside where it was warmer and she quit feeding them and after 2-3 days they all died i felt really bad because i felt like it was mine fault but my mom told me if i didn’t move them inside they would of died anyway but any way if it is cold as in really cold and you think they will die than yes i would take my chance and move them to a warmer enviorment but than you might want to be warned they might die because she may or may not stop feeding them but i mean its all on the mom because all mom cats are different

    I have a dog half Blood beaggle adopted for 6 years (it has more or less seven years) one month ago was diagnosed with IRC. He was with fluid therapy and down a bit the values ​​of creatinine and urea. Treatment consists of 1 pill and half of Maalox / day and one of Cibacen 5mg / day. In a month of treatment at home has dropped creatinine 4.4 mg / dl to 2.1mg / dl urea .The always varies around 100mg / dl. She is as always lively and appetite. Follow a low-protein but of high biological value protein diet.
    Last analyzes show that electrolytes are ok (I am also giving her Ipakitine) she has been prescribed iron and now the hematocrit is ok.
    On the other hand, the dog is hysterectomy since adopted her. The echo shows remaining ovarian hormones and analysis 44pg / ml of estradiol.
    Tests of leishmania, erlichia and babesia where negatives.
    I would like to know:
    * That I can do to lower the urea more?
    * Ovarian remnant may result in IRC? The anemia seems regenerative anemia (reticulocyte index 2) this may be caused by ovarian remnant?
    * It is possible an intervention for removal of ovarian remains with kidney disease and hypertension which causes him?
    Sorry for the length of my question and for my English. I am spanish .Many thanks.

  47. Abby says:

    Hi I have a pitbull that I have been treating for happy tail syndrome. We have been applying neosporin and wrapping it with a circular piece of foam and an elastic bandage for the past few weeks. This morning I was taking her bandages off to let her cuts get some oxygen and I saw that I had wrapped it too tightly, and the section of tail directly above the bandage was swollen, while the bandaged part was shriveled up. Since then it has returned to normal except for the swollen portion directly above where the bandages were. Her tail is lying straight and limo and she is in a lot of pain. How can I treat this? I want her tail to be back to normal!

  48. Allie says:

    I found a stray cat several months ago, and I kept him. (It was probably late July/ early August) He has had something like a cold ever since. I have done research but I cant figure out what’s wrong with him. I want him to take him to the vet, but I cant (I’m 14) and my mom doesn’t like him that much and he was a stray so she doesn’t want to spend a ton of money on him. I’m afraid he has cancer or something, please help!

    I don’t really know what kind of cat he is, he’s solid gray with long/ish hair, and green eyes. I think maybe he is about 1 year old.

    His symptoms-
    Runny/ Snotty nose. He has sneezing fits pretty often. And whenever he sneezes, a lot of booger looking stuff comes out. (that’s one reason why my mom doesn’t like him, he sneezes on your computer monitors and TV)
    Sometimes his snot is kind of bloody.
    He has stuff come out of his eyes sometimes, it doesn’t look like mucus or anything its just little wet spots in the corner of his eyes.
    From what I can tell, he eats just fine.
    I’m not sure if this matters, but he doesn’t ever bury his poop in the litter box– I thought cats usually do so its kind of weird & it stinks really bad.

    But yeah that’s pretty much it. His name is Tater by the way. He’s very friendly and other than his nose problem and eyes, he doesn’t act sick at all. He doesn’t sleep ALL day, it seems like a regular amount and he’s not really an indoor or outdoor cat. He’s probably inside and out an equal amount of time. We do have one other cat who we had before Tater and he was not sick and still has not gotten sick, so whatever Tater has obviously isn’t contagious. And like I said, this has not went away at all since we got him.

    Our 10+ year old cat has been vomiting his food about once a week for a month. It has not slowed him down, he continues to eat and drink normally, the is not dehydrated, he is active and social and his nose is cold. Is this just a sign of age or could it be more serious? Could it be stress induced we went on a trip for 2 weeks and had a neighbor look in on him and that is when it started.

    Hello, how can i make sure that my cat has cryptorchidism?

  63. Jacqueline says:

    I’m trying to figure out what could be wrong with my dog. She is a blue tick/ pit bull mix. She is a lil over year old. Aprox. 3 weeks ago she all of a sudden just fell over on her side, her legs were stiff. Kinda looked like a seizure but no shaking. She went about two weeks without doing it again. Then out of no where she went to jump down off bed & it happened again & this time when she finally got up she was a lil disoriented & was walking wobbly. The very next day I went to let her out side & yet again she all of sudden fell to her side stiff legged for few seconds. I’m very worried about what could be wrong with her. Not sure if it could be a type of seizure or something. I am on extremely fixed income at the moment and cant afford to rush her to vet right now. Could u please help.

  64. Lori says:

    After a 30-40 minute ride that would make my horse sweat, we always see that he sweats more on his right side than his left. He has no previous injuries or hospitalizations that we are aware of, and is otherwise in perfect health. What could be the cause of this?

  65. Brianna says:

    My pomerarian has always had little breathing attacks when getting too excited. Lately he’s been having this attack where he just shakes and his neck muscles get really tense. I’m not sure what is going on, if I can get him to let me rub his neck after about 10-15 mins it starts to release and he calms down.

  66. anne says:

    My 6 month old maltipoo has been shaking and losing balance while trying to run. She eats and drinks on time but her two back legs are shaking and she falls over for some reason. I took her to the vet and they told me her blood works are fine but gave me some medicines: prednisone, phenobarbital and methocarbamol. Her shaking has improved a little but she is still falling over. Can you please tell me whats going on with her and how long is it going to take for her to recover.

    my 3 month old GSD puppy ate a whole big pizza. the pizza had almost no cheese. other ingredients were meat & olive oil & sauce. what should I do?

  69. kori davis says:

    hello, and thank you for your help! I had no clue this website existed. I just found a stray puppy about six months maybe, looks like a pit bull. We found him on the side of the road… We set out water and dog food for him and he ate and drank, so that was good. we brought him inside after he was playing with our dog (they were running around like crazy), and all of a sudden he splattered all over the floor and the wall diarrhea (complete liquid) a light color, no worms in it. so we cleaned it up and brought him back outside, he ended up eating more and he hasn’t pottied since then, we will watch. So then im laying with the puppy on the bed and i felt on his stomach, he has a lump (could be a hernia or i dont know) but i pushed it gently and it is very soft, Its the same color as his skin. any recommendations or anything I can do for him until I can afford the vet sometime within a week. Let me know thank you again, I appreciate you!

    Hello, i have a whte german shephard and she is 9 years old. For the past month or so ive noticed that shes losing weight and her ribs are showing. She also is having hip issues. I see her limping from time to time. I bought some joint tabs and they do help, but not sure what to do about the weight loss.

  71. cole says:

    I have a cat who has either a broke leg or dislocated hip but I’m scared a vet will tell me to put her down and that’s what family and friends keep saying to put her out of her pain

  72. Gia says:

    My dog got bloated after getting into a small portion of cookies. Her stomach seems bloated, but she doesn’t throw up, whine, pase, drowl or seem uncomfortable. She does burp now and then, but I’m worried if I should take her to the vet.

  73. Denise says:

    On Dec 24th we had a family xmas dinner at my cousins house who has a dog. There were a total of 17 people in a tiny space so the dog was indeed excited. There were also small children around. One of them pulled on his tail (not very hard at all). The day after our xmas gathering the dog got sick, crying alot, arched back and these signs continue up until now. In addition the dogs back leg is shaking and she cannot straighten it. Can all this be attributed to the dog’s tail being pulled or could there be other underlying issues. I do not own any pets so my knowledge is very limited. Any advise would be appreciated.

  74. Soraya says:

    My cat has asthma and I will give the compound of amazapet, as has much stress I want give her hawthorn ( i bought Crataegus oxicatha 5 CH). My vet is not sure if it is asthma, I have fear that it could be something from the heart, so perhaps is good give to her the hawthorn. In Spain there are not many holistic veterinarians, I need to know the dosage of Craetagus 5CH.
    My cat weighs 8lb, I’ve been giving oral prednisone (I sent him the vet), his symptoms started right after his companion cat passed away days earlier after an operation for olive pit. It was devastating, she started coughing occasionally breathe more quickly and with a pattern a little weird. She has not been coughing since I give the medication, but want a more natural alternative with fewer side effects. When she was small I saved her from an air duct, so sick of the airways, when she gets nervous and makes noises when breathing during sleep sometimes makes a soft noise like a sweet snore.

    Thanks for your help
    Best regards

  75. Brandon says:

    Hey! I have a 7yo German Shepard/husky mix that I rescued and his medical and life history is unknown. However, his diet before the rescue mainly consisted of dumpster diving delights. After switching to regular dog food recommended for his age, he went through a brief period of having diarrhea but that only lasted for a few days. After which, his poops have become solid but very frequent. Every time he is let outside in the morning, he usually poops about 5x and each poop is about the size of the average tube of toothpaste. I know he is a big dog, but lately he has been pooping those poops about 15 times a day. If he is left alone in the house, he will poop all over the living room even though he was let outside before. I do not know if the coping inside is a obedience problem or if it is his way of letting me know there is a problem. I have had Shelties all of my life so I don’t know anything about these big dogs and their bowel movements, but this dog literally poops more then I do in one day then I can in a week. Please help!

  76. Graem Castell says:

    My wife and I live in an area that is due for a megathrust earthquake. If this event happens during the lifetimes of two (indoor) cats, we will (for various reasons) need to abandon our home on foot and will be unable to take our pets with us. Rather than leave them to an unknown and almost certainly miserable fate (surrounded by devastation; no food; no water; no-one to pay any attention to them), we wonder what would be the simplest, most humane, least distressing way of euthanizing them?

  78. Elizabeth Jones says:

    I need your advise regarding my 11 months old Persian male cat. the problem is that my cat wants to go out for mating and if we do not let him go out he sprays and pees in the house which causes a very bad odor in the house. Now that we have let him out on his own he has started to spray around outside and you can smell the odor as soon as you enter through gate.
    Secondly we have tried to set up play dates for him and lock both the cats in bathroom but uptill now he hasn’t mated.
    Thirdly, there is a stray cat outside which is on heat all he does is that he sits beside her all day long and if we bring him inside the female cat starts to cry which make him go crazy to go outside.
    Finally, I want to ask you about getting my cat neutered. The pros and cons of getting the cat neutered. I have heard from someone that the cat’s personality changes and we have to take care of him more because there will be a wound after his operation and all the people in our house go to work. Hence, there can be a problem in taking care of him 24/7.

    hello my dog doesn`t eat anything please help me soon

  81. Joan says:

    I hurt a great deal after giving this some thought. I was in a situation where I had to put my dog to sleep and didn’t want to do it but didn’t know what else to do for her. Death was imminent, and she was in a lot of pain. When my dog was put to sleep, she was lying flat on the floor and her eyes were closed, and this was her position when rigor mortis set in. I stayed with her a good half hour after rigor mortis set in. The vet talked me leaving my dog’s body with her and letting her “flash freeze” her body, to free me up until I could decide if I wanted to cremate her remains or bury her. I told the vet I thought I would bury her in my backyard. She implored me to let her keep my dog. She told me she would give me a coffin. She said they didn’t have any in stock but would be getting a shipment the next day. When I called the following day to see if they had received their coffins, the girl who answered the phone said they don’t carry coffins and didn’t know anything about that shipment. When i picked up my dog, my dog was sitting upright, her eyes were partially opened, a combination of drool and blood dripping from her mouth were flash frozen, her head was lowered. She looked like she was in so much pain. When I called the vet to ask her what she did to my dog, she replied she didn’t know and giggled for having been put on the spot. It occurred to me recently that she did something incredibly sinister and creepy to my dog that borders on satanism. What did this vet from Banfield Pet Hospital do to my dog? How could she legitimately have altered my dog’s position and expression after rigor mortis set in? Thank you.

    • Deanna Ming says:

      So sorry you and your dog went through this sad situation. I have no clue what your vet was practicing, but it should be reported to police and veterinarian boards in case something illegal needs to be addressed.

      Hi Kate, I would definitely recommend you consult a vet. If your dog does not behave as normal and you see rapidly growing masses its always worth being checked out.

      Early diagnosis is always best in these instances.
