RE: Carsick dog

This is probably more likely anxiety than motion sickness. Gradual acclimation can work, but I'd urge you to talk to your vet about anti-anxiety medication. It makes the leaning of calm and relax, don't be afraid, this will be a fun car ride SO-O-O-O much easier and faster. Doug, DVM

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Walter and Garland, Sandy and I are on our way to Vermont for the Escapees rally. We spent a week at Gettysburg and are in upstate NY heading for Vermont. All is well except for the unseasonable heat through this area.

RE: Flock benifits of training our sheepdogs

Mark, do you have to isolate her or is spread to the rest of the flock an issue? What was the source, or is listeria present everywhere and this was just a chance infection?

RE: Cat with Skin Issues and Hair Loss

There is obviously an undiagnosed parasite condition or an issue with this kitten's immune system. The infectious/parasitic causes seem to have been treated or eliminated that pretty much leaves the unusual: 1. overwhelmed and unable to deal with usual infections (like acne) or 2. immune mediated/auto-immune disease (many possible - like pemphigus) 3. severe allergic reaction to ??? Food allergies do happen and it's worth trying a limited ingredient food with a single protein and single carb source. Antihistamines can help, my favorite in cats is chlorpheniramine (it's available OTC). BUT, my suggestion is to get another opinion with a fresh set of eyes, probably a dermatologist would be your best bet. The most frustrating case in a cat I had in 37 years of practice was one I referred to the derm dept at Purdue. The cat cleared up when in their hospital and relapsed every time it went home. Nothing worked. After about a year back and forth, totally unrelated the owner stopped smoking and THE CAT CLEARED UP. Go figure, the cat was allergic to tobacco. Allergies can be really hard to track down and require a very dedicated owner willing to communicate with a vet that's willing to communicate. Doug, DVM

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Dan, wish I had something to add or suggest. Old dog breathing problems can be lung, heart, allergic or other. Sometimes a hard diagnosis. The meds Sarah are on are the same ones I use frequently. Sometimes the aminophylline (or theophylline) and antibiotics can cause a little nausea and giving with some food or after a few treats can help. Doug, DVM

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Charles and Charlotte, we're so sorry for your loss. Oreo was a special soul, Sandy really got to know her at the last rally and they seemed to click. I know it's a hard day for you both.

RE: New calming product for loud noises??

Sileo is dexmedetomidine that is the same ingredient that is in Dexdomitor - a pre-anesthetic agent we have been using for several years. It is a great sedative, but I've never used it for noise phobia as until recently it has only been available in injectable forms. I'd be interested in feedback from you all. BTW, living in Indiana where the legislature and governor have made it legal to sell and set off fireworks up to about a 1/2 stick of dynamite, any holiday is miserable for many of our patients. The ERs are fire personnel are on alert also. It used to be that you could buy them but not set them off without a permit (that nobody got). Now you can set them off just about anywhere. The justification for allowing increased sale and use was that they put a 5 percent tax on the sale of fireworks that is supposed to go to fire personnel training or a fire institute. Doug, DVM

RE: Seresto vs. Scalibor flea/tick collars

Scalibor and Seresto have been used with few side effects reported. Most frequent is itching that resolved when removed. Any severe side effect are associated with the dog eating the collar (not advised method of use :B) Most report good efficacy and no reactions. Being retired, I have no personal experience, but did a check on the veterinary boards I still have access to. Doug, DVM

RE: goodbye my friend

There are good dogs, then special dogs. Panama sounds like the special kind and I believe you will meet up again. He'll be waiting for you. Sorry for your loss.

RE: A very tragic weekend

I'm so sorry, Mark. Acute problems like this are devastating. No warning, nothing you can do and you always end up second guessing and thinking what if. My very favorite golden of all time, Amanda, was slowing down but she was 12. All of a sudden she collapsed, got pale and shocky. I got her to the hospital and she died before I could even get an IV in her. I know it was a hemangiosarcoma tumor in her heart that ruptured (autopsy), but no evidence before hand. Still second guess myself on that one. Again, very sorry for your loss. Doug

RE: Which dental chews are okay for small dog?

Sorry for this answer, Judy. It depends. Some individuals I wouldn't recommend ANY chews because of the way they vigorously chew. These guys either bite off too big a piece or try to swallow big pieces or just chew so hard that they break teeth. Other, any animal appropriate chew would work: nylabones, greenies, dental chews, rawhides (gasp), etc. I think the best action is to watch and supervise the chewing until you can be sure that what you have left out isn't going to cause a problem. BTW, Kaiya uses both hard and soft nylabones. Kaylee doesn't really chew on much. Doug, DVM

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Glad you got a better look. Most of us MH owners replace our tires every 6-7 years. Did you get the tire pressure monitoring system? Just did this (got new ones) with my 6 tires. They were almost 9 years old and I've been having them inspected professionally (not breaking them down though) for the last two years. Replacement is not cheap, but budgeted for and with major trips coming up I just couldn't take the chance even though there was little to no dry rot, cracking and uneven wear (except for outer edge of the steer tires). They were original Michelin XRV and I had such good luck that I replaced them with Michelins. Tire threads are so tiresome (pun intended) and you get so many different opinions, and everybody is right in their opinion :) I got a TST pressure monitoring system that I'm installing before our trip. BTW, my new tires were born in the 15th week of 2016, just about our birthdays Richard.

RE: Kodak

Sorry for your loss. The gradual decline makes it hard to know exactly when that time has come. His well being/quality of life was foremost in your thoughts.

RE: MarCELL Temperature Power Alarm

Regarding cell signals, I've found that texts go through many times when voice will not. Of course you have to have some kind of connection, but I think it's a better chance with texts, if you're willing to risk it.
