Dog Health > has anyone had to have there dogs teeth extracted
Murphy

Dogs are angels- with fur!
 
 
Barked: Mon Sep 22, '14 11:16pm PST 
Hi, Murphy has had 12 teeth extracted, actually 4 in the back were so loose they kind of fell out on their own. He is 11 and has had problems with his teeth since I adopted him at 4 mos. He does fine without the teeth since when he eats his kibble he never chewed before and I give him soft treats to eat, he can eat Milk Bone type biscuits also. No problems with the procedure and he recovered quickly so no problems after either. If you need any more info let me know.

Dog Health > CASE REPORT: LARYNGEAL PARALYSIS
Murphy

Dogs are angels- with fur!

Just a heads up on Benadryl, I tried this on Murphy with the correct dosage for his weight, he was on for about 4 days and then he started having bloody noses. This is a side effect of too much Benadryl for people and dogs. The anthistamine dries out the nose and can cause bleeding. I had to stop using it because of this side effect. As soon as I stopped no more bloody noses at all so I know it was the Benadryl.

Hi, Murphy might need a rhinoscope, he is having nasal issues. Was wondering if anyone had experience with this and how it went. Also can you tell me approximately how much it is going to cost, want to get some kind of idea how much I need to save. Thanks!

Dog Health > Frontline Stopped Working...How Long Before I Can Apply Advantix?

Murphy

Yes it does get into the bloodstream so I would go ahead and at least wait 3 weeks before applying the Advantix to be on safe side. I had the same issue with Frontline Plus stopped working so I went to K9 Advantix, much better but you do need to apply the dose one per month so you would be applying 12 doses not 6 and the same should have been with the Frontline Plus.

Dog Health > laryngeal paralysis info needed

Murphy

Dogs are angels- with fur!
 
 
Barked: Thu Jul 17, '14 5:49pm PST 
Was wondering if anyone had experience of this and what your dogs symptons were. Murphy is diabetic since 2013 and lately he has been having a lot of gagging especially after drinking water, not when he eats. He is also snorting a lot and sounds almost like he has flem in his throat sometimes. He gets really tired when walking and pants a lot but that could also be from diabetes. I am just a little worried as I looked into laryngeal paralysis and he seems to have some of the symptons. Thanks for any info you can pass along.

Dog Health > Diabetes
Murphy

My dog Murphy also has diabetes, you do not have to feed them a special diet if the dog food you are feeding them is high grade, which ours is. Get a glucose meter if you can, the best one is AlphaTrak 2. Check out the k9diabetes.com site lots of info on there for you. Good Luck!

Dog Health > canine diabetes

Murphy 10 years old, 60 lbs was diagnosed May 2013 and it has been and uphill battle since. He is still not regulated, started at 15 units twice a day and now up to 23 units, his numbers are as high as 450 and the lowest they go are 150. He is going blind with cataracts which is very common with diabetes and not much you can do about them, he has neuropathy in back legs which is also common with diabetes, the high sugar attacks nerves in back legs, same thing happens in people. He is on dry kibble, Blue Buffalo and the Vet said keep him on that since it's a good food. I do a curve at home every month with the AlphaTrak 2 which is the best glucose meter to use for dogs, need only a tiny pin size drop of blood to test and he doesn't even feel the prick. All I can tell you is hang in there and take one day at a time. Murphy is doing ok but I would feel better if I could get his numbers down which we are still trying to do. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions

Dog Laws & Legislation > Deramaxx adverse effects

Murphy

Dogs are angels- with fur!
 
 
Barked: Thu Oct 24, '13 4:45pm PST 
I'm sorry to hear about your dog, but this doesn't happen to all dogs taking Deramaxx. Murphy has been on it for some time now but a low dosage and he hasn't had any problems at all, he takes half a 75 mg pill every day. I have not heard anyone else having problems with Deramaxx and Vets are usually in tune to this, they wouldn't prescribe it if it was harmful to dogs. Of course just like flea meds and other meds some dogs react badly to them just like humans do. Good luck to you and your dog.

Dog Health > Weak Back Legs with Diabetes, Suggestions

Murphy

Dogs are angels- with fur!
 
 
Barked: Sat Sep 14, '13 7:48pm PST 
Does anyone have problem with weak back legs if their dog has diabetes. I know it is a side effect, but I was wondering do you have any suggestions to strengthen the legs or anything that may help? Murphy isn't in pain but his back legs are getting weaker and I would like to do something to try to strengthen if possible. Thanks!

Dog Health > K-9 ADVANTIX II IS TERRIBLE
Murphy

Dogs are angels- with fur!
 
 
Barked: Sat Sep 7, '13 3:12pm PST 
Murphy does great on K9 Advantix and has been on it for quite some time, we changed from Frontline Plus because it wasn't working on him anymore plus he had bad reactions to it but no problems since changing to Advantix. I agree with what everyone else says, all dogs are different and react differently just like people so don't blame the product. Some people are allergic to aspirin but that doesn't mean everyone needs to stop taking it. Adjust medications accordingly to your dogs own needs just like people do.
