Physical exam prior to putting catheter then induce GA. Put puppy on her back, clip and clean the surgical area. Put drapes and start hacking away and pray for the best outcome

Can be a lot of reason. Diet, infectious disease, parasites, etc. Need to take it to a vet.

My puppy has kennel cough 3 weeks ago . Had already went to vet and given puppy medicine. How do I know if she is recovered ? She still cough once in awhile like maybe once to twice a day only .

My dog just got cancer, lympnode cancer. The vets prognosis was 2 months left to go. How can i make the next 2 months as good and painless as possible for my 8 year old?

My 2 month old kitten tends to tear when she is Wellness CORE Pâté Kitten Turkey & Chicken Liver Canned Cat Food. I heard that it is good because it is grain free. But previously she was on Applaws Kitten chicken breast meat food and she didn't tear. Why is this so?

Hi, i have a 7 y/o schnauzer/jack Russell mixed who is prone to skin problem. Is there anything that can be done to prevent this? I have been to the vet a few times and they have said that it is due to allergic reaction. I have tried changing his food and avoid walking in grass area for now but the condition still persist. The area which i feel is affecting my dog most is his paws n the butt area, as he frequently lick his paws. His butt area have this patch of bald spot which is now rough and black.

Kennel cough is self limiting disease. The puppy would have recovered on her own, drugs are just there to make her comfortable

Sorry to hear that. Do you mean lymphoma or a cancer that has metastasised to the lymph node?

A lot of pet food makers tend to promote grain free as ‘better’ but realistically, they’re all the same ****.

Now a days I just tell the owner to try different brands and see what works

If licking all four paws, then likely contact allergies, wonder if the butt licking might be due to impacted anal glands?
