My dog (9yo Lab cross male neutered) ate a popsicle stick. What do I do?
Our greyhound (3yo neutered female) broke her hock on the track,can you tell me when this is healed will there be any long term side effects or would it be kinder to have her put to sleep.
My dog (2yo male neutered Corgi) knocked over a can of paint and it fell over and spilled, i think she might have licked some up and she threw up twice, will she be ok or will i have to take her to the vet to have her checked out?
I just noticed that one of my dog's (3yo female neutered black Labrador) glands on the outside of her anus is swollen a bit and a little red. she scraped her bottom along the carpet and is licking it a bit more. we have been swimming in the lake a lot and was wondering what she has and what i can do.
My dog (6yo Rottweiler/Shepherd mix male neutered) has a hip problem and what my vet thinks is a torn ligament. He doesn't seem to be in pain but I took him for x-rays and while he was under for the x-rays, the doctor noticed an irregular heartbeat. So she took an X-ray of his chest as well. She said he might have an enlarged heart or cardiomyopthy. So the next step was an EKG. The results came back with some gaps in the heartbeat and the doctor has now recommended an ultrasound. She says that we need to worry about the heart problem before we even worry about doing surgery to help his hip and knee. I want some kind of second opinion on what I should do. I guess my question is, is it true that we should get the heart problem looked at before we worry about his hip problems? He is the happiest dog ever and doesn't seem to be in pain. I have researched the heart problems in dogs and he doesn't have the symptoms that they suggest come along with heart problems like loss of appetite and heavy breathing or panting when there is no physical activity. But if there is no guarantee for hip surgery when he has a heart problem, then I guess I don't want to take the chance. I am very confused and very broke from the cost of everything. I need help.
Our Setter (6yo male neutered) chases birds, ground hogs, squirrels, etc. We now have wild turkeys visit on our lawn. The Setter just looks at them. We want him to chase the turkeys away but he is not interested. I think he is afraid. He will chase wild geese. What's wrong with him?

Vet question of the day
Cat with runny diarrhea
My 4 year old male neutered cat has runny stools - diarrhea sometimes - up to 2 times a week. Originally I was feeding him Purina One but about a year ago, I switched to Iams hoping that might help the situation. Both the Purina One and Iams that he was/is fed are for adult cats. He's had problems with both products. He has a healthy appitite and is seems healthy. Is there a cat food that I could start out with that might help him?
