  1. Shiba Slipped Disk

    Dog Health
    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...

    Dog Health
    My 6.5 year old pit/lab mix Scout had her second TPLO surgery a day and a half ago (first one was 3 years ago). Since we have returned from the vet she has whined for hours a day. It has been 36 hours and the whining/crying has not subsided much. The internet seems to think her crying is...

    Dog Health
    Please, if you can help. 12 days ago our 7 year old Yorkie became sick. One day 3 we took him to vet who misdiagnosed him with stomach virus. We knew that was not right so we took him back to another vet in the same office who had some thoughts and started him on some other things, but after...

    Our boy, Jackson, herniated or slipped a disc last night getting on our bed. (our bed is on the floor, not even a frame). His back legs became paralyzed and he was screaming in anguish.

  7. Life after Parvo

    Dog Health
    So I thought I'd start a new thread seeing as the Parvo thread, while very informative, seems to be very quiet. There is a lot of information out there on getting your dog through Parvo, keeping him hydrated, getting him to the vet asap, but less for after Parvo care. My main question is, why...
  8. Carpal arthrodesis (fusion surgery). HELP!

    Dog Health
    I posted a thread recently about my Newfie with carpal laxity. Carpal laxity usually occurs in large breed puppies and usually clears up with proper diet and exercise. I did everything the vet said, but my dogs' problem did not go away. We went back to the specialist today who said he would need...

  10. Don’t give up on a dog if it still has the spirit to recover

    Dog Health
    If your beloved pet is not given much hope by the vet, but the pet seems to have the strength to heal, trust your pet and help him or her get better! Our vet gave us only the hope of maybe time and prayers when our pet had a stroke. After about 6-8 months, he was 98% recovered. About a...
  11. My dog's hips are still popping after TPO surgery

    Dog Health
    We have a now 8 month old German Shepherd. When he was 7 months old, he was diagnosed with hip dysplasia. Our surgeon felt his hips "popping" and so did we. Other symptoms included stiffness and pain upon standing. We elected to undergo TPO surgery at that age because of the high success...
  12. Getting my starved dog healthy

    Dog Food
    My dogs escaped and were gone for 7 days. With the help of posters and websites and hours walking we were able to find them. My Boxer mix, however, looks beyond starving. The people who found him gave him a ton of food and he threw it all up. We have been giving him smaller meals through the day...
  13. My little girl was spayed today

    General Dog Discussion
    Porkchop is out of heat and spayed as of today. She is not happy :( She is being very still as in not trying to do anything other than lay, but shivering and whimpering. I covered her up with a blanket and the shaking has really calmed down and I just gave her a pain pill about 20 minutes...
