RE: Dogs Riding And Tired

I don't have a clue. I know all of our dogs (and cat) have gone through the pooped out syndrome.

RE: Trimming toe nails

As Samantha said when nails have been allowed to grow too long, you need to trim every week or two. This allows the quicks to gradually get back to their normal length without going through the pain of cutting way back to normal length all at once. I have had patients where we sedated to trim the nails back to normal length, these were guys where the nail trim was a challenge for us and the dog, much preferable to do it all at once (for everyone concerned).

RE: Question re: Benedryl & dogs

He'd get the fifty two or three times a day. Benadryl takes some getting used to with dogs, because it just does not affect them the way it does humans. If there's a sedative effect at all, it is VERY subtle. This. Some dogs have an idiosyncratic reaction - they get hyper on the high end dose. Also benadryl is probably not the best antihistamine choice for dogs, though it is usually used first because of it's cost and availability. Hydroxyzine and doxepin seem to have more universal results. There is a new medication, Apoquel that works on allergy (also food allergy) in a different way and precludes the need for cortisone in many cases. Earl is spot on in reference to grain free diets.

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

Second guessing is my favorite past time. Don't beat yourself up about it, you waited for all the right reasons and tried to give him more time. He is at peace now.

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

Our thoughts are with you. You gave him a good life and will give him a loving end.

RE: Update on BenBen- still has more time in him

Sorry Barb. I wish the chemo for this disease gave more than 6-9 months of remission. You are making tough decisions. Doug

RE: Katy joins Jake

Sad day, I understand the emotions. I'm glad you have so many memories of them and hope those memories will be a comfort to you both. Doug

RE: Had to take Mikko to vet (update 4/9/14) K-State Diagnosis

Sorry this is happening, but I'm glad it's a fracture, better than osteosarcoma that I was slightly worried about. If you go that direction, it's good you are talking to K-State, the surgery is best done by an experienced orthopedic surgeon. Doug, DVM

RE: The Weather Channel--what happened??

After a three-month dispute with DirecTV that saw the channel dropped to some 20 million U.S. viewers, the two sides came to a new deal that will restore service on Wednesday. The biggest change to its programming will affect all Weather Channel viewers, not just DirecTV subscribers. It said it will reduce its reality programming by half on weekdays. That means fewer airings of TV shows like "Coast Guard Alaska" and "Hurricane Hunters."

RE: Dry Eye

I'm wondering if anyone uses the OTC eye drops for dry for people, on there doggies that have Dry Eye? Yep, they work fine. Long term you may need to upgrade to cyclosporine eye drops. Restasis is the human form and is not as concentrated as the form necessary for dogs. Not an inexpensive treatment, but very effective. Doug, DVM

RE: Happy Birthday puppies

13 is a pretty common age for vestibular disease. Most dogs and cats that have episodes are over 10. Megan was 13 and Charmin was 12 (we guessed his age) when they had their episodes. There is no know initiating cause and most recover within a couple weeks. Vestibular Disease Doug, DVM

RE: Happy Birthday puppies

Neurologically these guys brains are still developing. They are first making the connections that allow them the coordination to walk. It's really amazing how mild brain injuries at this age can allow for normal pathways to develop pretty quickly. It's no way near as severe as in older people who have strokes and have to relearn movement. I'd guess this guy is going to continue to progress with the great nursing care he's being given. As far as eye injuries, it would be almost impossible to tell unless there was an obvious difference in size of the globe. Are their eyes even open yet?

RE: Happy Birthday puppies

An MRI or CT would be very interesting, certainly not necessary to treat just interesting. Even if this guy does not develop the type of skills necessary for work, he should be a good companion. I know that's not what you hoped for, but...

RE: hey Dturn ....how is Sandy doing,

Thanks for asking, Sandy is improving, still a little sore and swollen but most of the bruising is gone. She still has a few Dr. appointments, the AFib is under control with meds, but now trying to regulate BP with the new heart meds. The travel plans have a little delay and it's my fault. The Dr who took over the practice had a major surgery planned and I agreed to substitute during her recovery, so I've got about a month before we are "free." We did get away for a long weekend to the Indiana Dunes state park, still pretty chilly but it was a wonderful time. Doug

RE: Lost Dog Anchorage AK

It's unlikely that there is a good outcome here. At the request of the OP, we're closing this thread.

RE: Second Opinion On Proin Appreciated

Thank you so much dturm!!!! Would I need a prescription for DES or Incurin? Since I'll be travelling, can I buy it "over the counter"? If so where? Both are prescription. The DES is not used in people except in very limited circumstances so the patients I have on it get it through a compounding pharmacy. The Incurin is a very new drug, but works like the DES as a hormone replacement. It probably would be available through your vet (if they carry it) or through an online vet pharmacy with a prescription.

RE: Second Opinion On Proin Appreciated

Urinary Incontinence can be a frustrating problem. Sometimes getting the UTI cleared up eliminates the incontinence and no further medication is needed. But there are some that need life long medications. PPA (Proin) is usually an effective therapy. I prefer DES or Incurin in most cases as it can be maintained at a once or twice a week dose with little chance of side effects. Doug, DVM

RE: Can dogs have hypoglycemia?

Very common in small, toy, miniature breed very young puppies. Not very common in older animals unless some medical condition exists. Doug, DVM
