    My dog is a 10 years old Golden Retriever, he started a non stop diarrhea 3 times a day (yellow watery ) for 30 days and can’t seem to stop. He’s not eating well and is lethargic. We took him to the vet but treatments are not working either and there’s nothing wrong in blood or fecal works...

    Please don't read this if you are faint of heart. Alright, so as I'm typing this, my eyes are flooded with tears, and my heart is heavy. Last night, we had to put my mother-in-law's dog down after she contracted a virus that my own puppy, Maui, had just gotten the week before. Prepare for the...

    So I have a 15 month old male Pomeranian. Recently, he's been vomiting more frequently. It has been on and off for awhile, and the other two Pomeranians we have at home (older females, different litters) throw up occasionally as well. Usually, it's bile and I know that might be because he's...

    So my dogs have had some GI issues for a while and the vet has not been able to narrow down what is causing it. Today, I sort of had an epiphany (I think). The house we live in had painted wood floors when we moved in, and whoever painted them did not seal them properly, so you can imagine dogs...

    A little over two weeks ago, I had to take my dog (technically my parents' dog that I'm taking care of since they've temporarily moved) to the vet for emergency surgery after she ate carpet and couldn't pass it. She just got her staples taken out on Saturday, and since then she's had trouble...

    Hi All, Can anyone explain to me what exactly is going on when a dog (whippet) has liver shunts and then contracts a GI infection? When the vet told us, it was really complicated so I was hoping to find some more info on it. Anyways, the prognosis we were given was very bleak so I'd like to...

    I adopted my dog, Crenny, in September of 2012. He is 3 years old, a rescue beagle-mix who has had a very rough life (he was abused). When we got him, the rescue place had him on regular pedigree dry and wet food. I didn't think this was the best food so I switched him to something else (dry...
