What should the post operative treatment be for a 13 year old dog who had 7 teeth extracted 9 days ago and still isn’t eating normally?
Currently he is in a vet clinic on an IV (without pain medication) and taking medication for a stomach ulcer for previous and continued use of previcox.
What damage of internal organs is likely if he doesn’t begin eating normally soon.
We have a 13yr, old female spayed Australian Cattle dog/Queensland Heeler who weighs 81 pounds, but used to weighing 70 pounds. She is a lot active and has arthritis, but is on anti-inflammatory. She eats 2 cups of Natural Balance Vegan kibble daily, equaling about 700 calories. Without changing her type of food, how can we reduce her weight? Can she safely eat less than 2 cups/700 calories daily?
What is the best vitamin supplement for dogs?
I have 4 small healthy dogs ages 3, 6, 10 and 11. I am also getting a puppy of a large breed. They all eat (daily) chicken and rice with fresh vegetables, all organic. Can you recommend a general vitamin that I can give them?

My elderly cat needs to gain weight. He was having trouble keeping his food down. But now he is on cerenia and his appetite has improved. He is keeping his food down, most of the time. However, he is still too thin. He really isn’t gaining any of his weight back. I can feel his bones when I pet him. Any ideas on how to fatten him up a bit? I have been feeding him as much can food as he wants. Dry food is always available in a continuous feeder.
He will be 15 in Jan. TC is a Maine Coon who use to be a healthy 18 lbs. He now weighs 13 lbs.

I have a four year old cat who ate dry & wet food.Now he hardly eats the wet food. I have tried all kinds & flavors of the wet food but he mostly just eats dry…I have him on a premium “lite”, he needs to lose a few pounds. He seems healthy…does all normal cat things, plays with our other cat etc.Is it bad for cats to just eat dry food?
