Clay just broke his big molar right from the tip all the way into the gum.He goes to get it taken out next week.Right now he is on meds for pain and antibiotics so that he doesn't get infection. Maybe it's the season for broken toofers! shrug

It is very normal for a Vet to give a wormer on top of the Heartgard treatments or I should say preventative. Have a general wormer given to get rid of a load of intestinal parasites is better then waiting the umpteen months for the Heartgard to finally rid the system of worms.There is such a samll amount of intestinal wormer in the Heartgard pills that it is best to do a general wormer for the dogs health.
So not uncommon. Good Luck

Dog Health > Oral tumor

Most oral tumor are benignand that is what I'm hoping for you.Results noramlly can take up to 2 weeks depending on where you ae sending it and if the Vet's office gets it out in a timely manner.The earliest I have ever seen anything come back is 3 days.Recovery depends on where the tumor is and how involved it is in that area.If you don't have a blender now would be a good time to pick one up or borrow one. Puree his food for a bit so it will be easier for him and he doesn't need to chew anything.I will be keeping you in my thoughts

Hey there Bailey
Hope you are feeling better
I have had experience with UTI's. My Boston had issues from the time her mom stopped cleaning up after her and maybe even before that. When I went ot visit her at the breeders I noticed blood in her urine.i took her in a they put her on antibiotics.It cleared up or was much better by the end of the 2 week treatment but within 3 days of no meds she started showing signs again. After several months of back and forth I had an ultra sound done and a few other test. When I just ended up having her spayed and doing an exporatory on her bladder to find out she had a birth defect.So they removed 1/4 of her bladder and she did great with in a week of her surgery.
A few months later she started having signs again. We swithced her food to the Wellness Fish formula and after that se never had an issue.
So with Bailey there could be several things going on and I think that all of the above posters have great info. I just thought that i would let you know that with her being so young there is a great possiblity of a birth defect.
Best of luck to ya

Dog Health > Mommy's little dribble glass

it could be a few things.I would not rule out a UTI it could be late in the UTI stages.He may have had this for longer then you have had him. Bladder stones are also something to think about,they will make a pooch dribble.I know when I had them I felt like I had to dribble LOL. I would start with a urine test and then go for a xray.Then i would do blood work as well.After all he is I think you said 5 or 6 so he is the right age where we would start doing these things for a baseline anyway. Best of luck.

Oh Cindy,I'm so sorry!
My Boston was diagnosed with a brain tumor and I took her to a specialist and had the Miligram done to make sure therer were no tumors in her spine. Then we did a brain scan to find that it was a tumor at the base of her brain. they gave her a few weeks but with an all natural approach and a muscle relaxer we were able to keep her very comfortable for over a year. I used a plant based steriod and a muscle relaxer.She had a great life with very little effects fromthe tumor until the last day when I could not keep her from seizuring.That was the day I made the final desicionto have her put to sleep. There is a pharmacy called Pet Health Pharmacy that will be able to help with the natural plant based steroid and maybe with a few other things. We also kept her on 3 times the dose of Omegs's to help with the inflammation.
Please let me know if I can help anymore.

No the side effects are cut by at least 75% it's call Natural Hydrocortisone and then most muscle relaxers would be fine.the pet health Pharmacy should be able to guide you and will be happy to work with your Vet. I know they have an online site just typw in their name dot com and it should come up. There is a small eperiod of adjustment for the change of meds so work with your Vet ASAP. If I had it to do all over again I probably would not have done the MRI after the miligram. The only other out come that it could have been was a brain tumor.I would have treated her in the same fashion with out the test.Hope that helps. After all the MRI can run upwards of $2000 the miligram was $1500
