    Hello everyone! I have a 17 week old Pomeranian puppy. I got him on Feb 9 and the first week I got him he was sneezing and then the sneeze turned into a cough. I have a concern with his sneezing and cough he’s had. The cough seems as if he's gonna vomit or it's a scratchy sound, and the sneeze...

    While I was getting ready, my dog got onto my kitchen counter and ate a slice of carrot cake I had laying there. It had pecans and I have read that pecans are toxic for dogs. What should I do? It wasn't a huge slice, but I am still worried.

    Came up with this idea in 2015, finally decided 2021 is the year to make it a real thing to share with all our dog friends! I've seen dog groomers use this sock thing on dog's ears when they blow dry them. But I've been using my prototype for ages and I hope it works better, it certainly looks...

    I noticed my dog licking and biting her paw. I know its a normal thing dogs do, so i let her be. After a few minutes she kept on licking, so i went to investigate and found this on her paw. Three red, hairless spots on her paw, with weird white stuff on it. The white stuff isnt a liquid, and is...

    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...

    Hello to anyone reading this. My dog is a one year old American/English bulldog mix who is very healthy and active. Today around 5:30 am I heard him gagging so I got up to check if he was doing alright. I turned on the light to see him sitting in front of a thick, lumpy blob of throw up. It was...

    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...

    Hello, my dog has been refusing to eat for 3 days now, when We put food in front of his face he turns his head away from it or leaves. 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!

    After my young Shetland Sheepdog passed away from liver failure, I started a small group that’s been working with professors and staff at Penn Vet Med, UC Davis Vet Med and several associations. If we can show sufficient interest by dog’s human families, then they can prioritize teaching...

    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...
