My German shepherd aged about 5 years is not having food expect in evening. Today my mom gave him bath and noticed that on left ear edge a area about half a inch is swelling which seems like if some water like substance is in it. Also upper part of left eye is in same condition. Kindly help me in this regard with some effective medicines. Regards

Most shephards tend to eat once that too in the evenings, especially in summers. The ear thing you mentioned could be Aural hematoma, and the water like swelling could be accumulation of unclotted blood. Kindly visit your vet and explore treatment options. It can vary form puncturing the swelling and drain contents (a recurrent procedure), to surgical correction (depends on how extensive it is) or Homeopathy meds to reduce recurrence. Take care.

"SCOOP THE POOP"
Every time you take your pet out for his daily business... carry a plastic bag and clean up the poop, to contribute your share to keep our environment clean!
Since dogs are meat eaters, their poop contents nitrogenous wastes and can contaminate nearby water bodies.
Dog poop can carry potentially harmful bacterias and worms, which can spread within the area around and pose risk to other humans and pets..!
Besides, no one likes to step on pet waste and spread it to homes, cars and workplaces.
Be a responsible owner.. Scoop the poop!!!!

My cat just laid two kittens two weeks ago. When should we take her for spaying? She is two years old. This her second delivery.

Hello, Usually cats come into heat sooner than dogs. You can wait untill your cat is feeding milk to the kitten which usually goes like for 35- 42 days. This will hel kitten to get sufficient motherz milk. And then sperate the kitten from mom. This will help drying of the uterus of the mother. Wait for another 10 days. N get her operated (spayed) on the 11th day.

Scabies or skin problem in dogs takes a bit longer time to cure. Give your dog a well nutrition diet but slightly reduce quantity of protein in the diet for some days and observe. Trim the nails so that it wont scratch and increase the infection further. Continue wokazole and maintain hygiene at her surroundings. Try to avoid phenol compounds at home for moping the floor.

My dog is suffring from prostites. Some times blood comes frm urine.

Lybrate-userhair fall can be due to multiple reasons. Is it at particular part of body or generalize. Slight generalize hair fall is normal. Few dogs shed more twice a year and few shed equally throughout the year. Please make sure you are feeding nutritious diet rich in proteins and essential fatty acids.

What is the weight of the dog. Overweight also contribute to snore. Check any growth in the nose or nasal passage if possible. Is he normal otherwise in its day to day activities. If nothing abnormal observed in its feeding and activity there is no need to worry.

My german shepherd is 8 months old and is a very happy and energetic dog. From last 2-3 days (21/12/2015) he is foaming too much. We give him roti and meat two times daily and drools. He is eating well but I am worried for his excess salivation. I just want to know whether it is normal or not?

MVSc

Excessive salivation is not at all a normal thing. You did not mention the deworming and vaccination status. I think your pet needs deworming and you have to repeat it in every 3 months interval. Along with that, give him liver tonic and a syrup with digestive enzymezes. If this condition persists even after that, go for feeding ors along with antacids and antivomitic medicines. I am sure that it will be alright then.

My 7 years old labrador has been dull for the last 15 days, appetite normal, had blood in stool 2 days ago, blood test revealed low BUN at 7.24, elevated sgot at 69.63, elevated alkaline phosphatase at 107. Xrays and ultrasound revealed enlarged spleen. Stool test showed presence of pus cells, blood. He has had thyroid issue for the last 3 years for which we give him thyronorm 100 daily. What disease could he possibly have?

How are his platelets? bun could be low because of long term fasting or because of reduced generation by liver. In latter case, get him blood ammonia levels checked. Its a test to done immediately (within 1 hr latest) after the blood is drawn. I would not consider sgpo and alkaline phosphatase elevated at those levels, however laboratory standards are different everywhere. Discuss following things with your vet. 1) contribution of ammonia levels in dullness. 2) possible underdosing of thyroid hormone supplements. For which, you can sent his blood 4-6 hrs post tablet, to see if 100mcg dose is helping you to achieve normal blood levels. If not, you may need to increase dosing and make it twice daily, after discussing with your vet. Hope this is helpful.

Respected Sir/Madam (veterinary) I am very depressed for my pet's health. I have a dog (labrador 2 month old), he becomes very un-healthy and thin day by day. I give him drools puppy starter and home based foods like Rice, chapati and milk too but no result found yet. Please guide me.

Personally I'm too not satisfied with only dog food or only home Cooked food diet for dogs. They need 50℅ protein solely from animal source. I suggest you start giving 2 boiled eggs and Royal canine maxi junior in place of drools. Get the deworming done immediately. If already done within 2 weeks then wait till it gets over. Give some calcium supplement in case you r not giving royal canine food twice a day. But see that you don't change the food immediately. It will suppress the immunity of your puppy. Do it gradually over a period of 7-10 days.

Doctor, i have a couple of pomerians, they are 12 years old now. Maggi (male) and Noodles (female) respectively. The female one has now got problems with her diets, she is not eating properly and vomits whatever she had. Please help

Hi. Is the female neutered? has she been coming in cycles regularly? wise to get a blood work done to rule out kidney or liver disease, as your pets are old. Meanwhile you can give digene gel with vanilla ice cream to curb vomiting. Take care.

Check if she has put on weight. Check if her teats are getting engorged relatively. By now, you should be able to identify pregnancy by a sonography.
