    Hello! My dog, Teddy, is 11 years old and has chronic pancreatitis and luxating patellas in both his rear knees. I would like to give him a joint supplement to help with his knees but am concerned about flaring up his pancreatitis (since most joint supplements contain fatty omega-3). Does...

    Hi, my dog (Pomeranian, 8yrs) recently got this sort of irritation on his mouth underneath his nose. At first it just looked a little swollen and I thought he’d just hurt it a little while digging around around the ground or gotten in a tiff with the neighbours dog but today when I came home...

    Since my GSD has been diagnosed with epilepsy, I've done countless hours of research on it to get a full grasp of what seizures were, what causes them, and how it can affect a dog's health. I'm a huge medical nerd so I've also decided to write a lengthy, in-depth research paper on the topic. I...

We had him taken to the vet yesterday because he was refusing to eat. The vet didn't really tell us what was wrong with him, they said that his blood is clean...

    Hello I have a 4 year old pit mix that came to bed with a red quarter sized spot on his belly the other night. Today, it's the same size, but the center is a black scab. It doesn't seem to be bothering him at all. Any ideas on what it could be? Thanks!

    Hello all. Thanks in advance for your help. I have a pitbull mix rescue who we assume is anywhere from 8-10 years old. Recently, he has been EXCESSIVELY thirsty. He will drink and drink for about 1-2 minutes straight. At first I just chalked it up to the summer heat, but now I’m not so sure. He...

    I'm watching my sisters pitbulls and fed them four raisins each. I had no idea that they were toxic to dogs. They both weigh around 60 to 65 pounds. This was about an hour ago and they are showing no symptoms. I have no money for a vet or any money whatsoever. I have been worrying over this...

    Every once in a while, if my dog tanks up on water, he gets the "licks". Where he almost has hiccup-like jolts and licks the air profusely. He will work up and start destroying and eating anything he can get ahold of. He eats until he gets himself to vomit. I try to "burp" him, but it doesn't...

    In March our 4yr Shiba began whimpering randomly (not often) but the whimpering gradually progressed and we found out that she has a slipped disk. We have not taken her for a scan but it seems to be at the base of her neck; when she is in pain she will not raise her head and she will cry when...

    Hello! First time poster here. I’ve recently discovered a strange hard object sticking out of my 10 year old cockapoo’s back, near the base of his tail. I thought it was a tick, but on closer inspection it seems more akin to a giant blackhead. He didn’t care if you touched it, but got mad when I...
