Hi Lycans

My 6yo Maltese has mature cataract in one eye. The other eye cataract is also starting to appear. We went to an Ophthalmology vet for consultation, confirmed cataract. My dog is not suitable for surgery due to her aggressiveness towards checkup and eye drops. It will be a big problem post-surgery. We are now training her to tame her to accept eye drops, hope it works. I found in the internet an eye drop Lanomax (https://www.lanomax.com/) that some people claims to be effective somewhat. What is your experience with Lanomax? Is it worth to try? Any side effects to watch out for? Or what other eye drops do you recommend?
My advice would be to see Dr Gladys Boo from Eye Specialist for Animals before investing in some weird internet eye drops. She just set up shop in Singapore recently in 2022 and is a board certified ophthalmologist

Hi Lycans,

I have a 4 yos Pomsky, would like to check would it be recommended to the full blood count test yearly as part of the check up or just the annual vaccination will do?

Do you have any vet that is reasonable price to recommend, previously i have been going to My Family Vet but the que is getting too long and unable to book in advance.

Thank you.

HI Lycans, I have a male cat. Yesterday, I notice that his left eye is more teary and watery than before. May I ask if I should just get some eye drops from pet shop to self treat first?

Can be allergies, corneal ulcer or cat flu, best to see a vet first. Dont anyhow self medicate

A once off baseline blood test to check CBC, liver/kidney, blood sugar, etc wont hurt but honestly I wont do yearly blood works unless there is a strong reason to do so. Even then, I will see what blood test is needed, like I have a patient with a history of IMTP in the past, so I may do a yearly CBC with platelet smear to survey and see if the condition has silently return.

Any vet is fine tbh, as long as they have an inhouse blood machine that can do the basic. For me I prefer Idexx blood machines as the company Idexx is based in America and is a pioneering leader in veterinary science for a long time. You can try those new China blood test machines but honestly I dont trust them

I am currently feeding both my dogs twice a day. Once in the morning and once at night. Recently I read that I should be only feeding them once a day.. Is it true?

One is 13yrs old and the other is 2.5yrs old.

Pls kindly advise.
Thank you very much!

hello, serious question here. I bought a goldendoodle from online that is not microchipped and vaccine. The dog looks more like golden retriever than goldendoodle, i honestly feel like i got scammed.

So how do i register this dog breed?

Bring to the vet, get it microchipped and get the paper work done

Hi @lycans , what i mean is, do i tell the vet its a goldendoodle or they'd know?
Usually we go by the looks, without paper work from the breeder it will be hard to say with 100% certainty what the breed is. You could also try DNA testing
