    Our 8 yr old male Rottweiler had, what we thought was a hot spot on his back leg. We took him to the vet after he kept licking it which we were told turned into Acral Lick Granuloma. So we got the cone, antibiotics and a spray. Fast forward 5 months, multiple vet trips later and he now has a...

    Okay, honestly, I have no idea what I'm doing with my uncle's family dog and no one wants to take care of her or help me take care of her. She's a terrier mix and she's around 14-16 years old, I'm not 100% sure since when my uncle got her I was still young myself. But from three or four years...

    Hi! My two year old mix has a black rash where a diaper rash used to be. It got infected to the point of blistering, which required antibiotics to get rid of. It’s looking better now but the black rash is still there. Anyone know what this is and how best to deal with? thanks!

    Hi everyone, My wonderful dog - a healthy 3-5 year old shepherd/border collie mix (we think) is having repeated eye issues. This only happens with one eye at a time. Her eye will get very red. She does not seem to be in pain. Sometimes there is a discharge/pus when this happens-lately it seems...

    This is my first time having a dog who was spayed and the rescue we got her from gave us very little info on how to care for this. She had the surgery 6 days ago and it has been hard to keep her calm. Thank you for all your help. She is eating fine, tons of energy. I just don't want to mess it up.

    Looking for information and/or experiences with giving your dog Zeniquin? Specifically for an extended period of time? Our dog contracted Pseudomonas while undergoing a common ligament correction surgery and has suddenly started experiencing serious renal issues. He was also on Deramaxx...

    My 4 year old goldendoodle had been getting nail bed infections for months now. It occurs on different toes and different feet everything. Antibiotics clear it up every single time but a different toe becomes infected within weeks. I have tried soaks also. He does not have any other health...

    Hi there! I have some questions. But first this is what's going on with my Corgi, Atticus! Warning, he's my first dog ever and I'm new to it all. Sorry in advance if I sound insane. Just want to make sure he's okay! A few weeks ago he had Coccidia. I took him to my vet and she confirmed it. So...

    Our dog Meesha is a year and a half old. 2 weeks ago I noticed a big red bump on her chin, there is not hair on it. It hasn't really gotten bigger or smaller. I think it might of started with a smaller abrasion or a smaller bump but I am not sure. I took her to the vet 2 days ago and he put her...

    Hey All, My 5 month old lab/shepherd puppy hurt his leg so we put him in a splint for awhile. During that 2 week time-frame in a splint, he developed a skin infection on his paw. He is on antibiotics, but his paw pad on one of his toes is falling off. I'm worried because underneath his pad...

    I was out of town last week, so my mother watched my 4 year-old Weimaraner for me. He's always a little ichy/licks a bit after he stays with her because he's a littler sensitive to grass. This time around I noticed him licking his paws a little more than usual, so naturally I investigated and am...

    Hello, Thought I'd reach out to one of the best training communities I've found online (I lurk). I am currently training a new puppy. He just turned 8 weeks old. His training is coming along fabulously but as of today he has started a new behavior. He has been urinating three or four times...

    My 8 year old EM Orco has gone downhill fast in the past 4 days. It started with him just being slower than usual when we walked and by Sunday night he didn't even want to go outside anymore. Took him to the vet first thing in the morning, blood test was done and his Liver ATL levels are so...

    We had our pup neutered this past Saturday. He seems to be behaviorally sound (extra cuddly, even), however I'm concerned with the healing process of the incision itself. All bleeding and or leakage has been extremely minimal, but he has occasionally gotten around to licking the wound. The...
