Re: Tylan uk

You will have had the cost of the actual prescription included in that bill. About £15. But you could just pay for the prescription to buy off an animal meds website. As Jean said, as it is licensed for farm animals, you have to sign a disclaimer at the vets. The vet is making a handsome margin. I w...

Re: My dog has a fever now????

I agree. Having Mr Slow on holiday, and junior vets unwilling to look after your sick pet is unsatisfactory.

Re: My dog has a fever now????

Have they checked for lupus? The systemic version is auto immune related, which our dogs can collect. Also the IMHA.

Re: Fireworks nervousness

I read that it was actually the brandy in Rescue Remedy that worked! Seriously.

Re: San Diego referral/ New epi dx with liver disease

Getting back to your first post, my experience was similar. She drank loads of water so her urine was too diluted to measure. Lipase levels were high, but this seemed to be part of enzyme use. With this, she lived till 12 yrs old and gentle heart failure in her sleep. Some vets, especially younger o...

Re: Fireworks nervousness

I’ve tried the Dorwest herbs with Marti, the springer spaniel . It knocked her out completely, not what I intended. Then I’ve tried the plug in aromatics, and the over the counter calming tablets you start a few weeks before. None worked. Now my Tinker, weight five kilos , panics crazily for a coupl...

Re: My dog has a fever now????

Have you phoned the emergency vets for advice? They maybe have a list of pet taxi people. Different antibiotics work on different bacteria. I got through three different ones for my UTI, though that may be completely irrelevant. If she is urinating, try and catch a sample in a Tupperware box. Also e...

Re: Not sure what is wrong after doing so well???

If she feels bloated round the bladder , get her to the vet asp for the catheter tube emptying. I’ve had this emergency myself after surgery, humans can hold a litre, no idea about dogs.
If not stones, she could have a UTI, which causes strange symptoms.

Re: Not sure what is wrong after doing so well???

I hope she has wee’d by now! If not ,Has she been drinking normally for her kibble? If she has, I would take her to the vet to have her bladder emptied easily with a
Would the ultrasound have checked her for bladder or other stones which be painful obstructions?

Re: Not sure what is wrong after doing so well???

I know how you feel about the vets surgery. I changed vet after I lost one of mine suddenly, couldn’t face the place! I had a lumpy Labrador, all lipomas, harmless fatty bumps under the skin, not attached to the body. Do you think think she has a headache? It’s hard for us to guess, but there are si...
