Doctor won't see her till next weekend. Meanwhile, her scores rise: ALT >1000, AST 212, and ALKP 1609. Ultrasound showed no tumors but adrenal gland on one side enlarged. Is it safe to let this go another week until they do more tests? The doctor thinks it's hormonal. Best food? Omega-3 okay? (I got some hemp seed oil for her and I have some flax seed, too).
About six months ago, I adopted two dogs from the pound. They get along very well. They play together all the time. They share a food bowl without incident. They share toys very well. About a month ago, my beagle was sitting on my lap. My black lab walked up to the chair and the beagle started growling. The lab attacked. They were fighting and growling and barking. I pulled them apart and kept them separated. Ten minutes later, I let them get together and they acted like nothing happened. This has happened about a dozen times. I don't know what to do. I give them both tons of attention. I'm afraid they're going to get hurt or that I will. Can you give me some advice?
we have a 14yo golden with mast cell CA hospicing at home. Tumor on L hip & arthritis lumbar. Needs pred occasionally but what do you use long term for pain relief? nsaids? asa? tramadol?
been going to the vet for a year straight spent thousands of dollars, changed food put on antibitics and steroids used ear drops still come back!! poor girl constantly shakes her head and cries is there any home remedies i could try to help my girls ears feel better!! PLEAASE
We have him on Baxtril as he seems to have another urine infection, so an ultrasound makes sense. Thank you so much for the new ideas. We'll pass them along to our vet and get that ultrasound scheduled right away. Hopefully that will help Baxter feel better. Best wishes, Wendy and Steve Hampton
Our vet has been working a fur problem with our neutered Australian mail for a year now. Baxter started out with a urine infection a year ago which was misdiagnosed by our former vet. He was treated and eventually diagnosed with a prostate problem (being treated with finasteride). Now he is losing fur and his estrogen level is 150 and should be 25. Small skin eruptions which have biopsied but nothing identified. Being treated with melatonin as researched by our vet. Do you have any other suggestions we could investigate?
My yorkie who's 9, started walking into hallways and doorways backwards and sometimes whines for someone to get him. Won't go down the steps but if you bring him to the door he will run outside, been Going on for a week, just diagnosed yeast infection in left ears given ear drops, two days ago he wouldn't go near the kitchen or go through his doggy door and has urinated on the rug. Do you know why he's behaving so strangely?
My cat now sprays whenever I say no to him. He is an indoor and outdoor cat although he stays in most of the time.
My 6yr old Pommeraniun mix has gotten very afraid of everything, sounds, people. We recently moved across country & that's when this started. I bought her a Thundershirt, it didn't help her at all. I don't know what to do.
My dog is 9yrs old French Mastiff she had it back in March this year, I think she has it again same symptoms and I don't have the money to take her back to the Vet. Wondering if theres anything I can try without Antibiotics?
My kitty has hyperthyroidism and I was wondering if cannabis oil would make the tumour go away and normalise t4 level. Should I give home m the oil orally or topically? I have read that the oil has to have high on thc and cbd to be effective anti tumour but im afraid my kitty will get stoned. Were can I buy the oil and how much should I give him to be on the safe side? Thank you
Is this just an allergy problem or is this something serious? Thanks Pet Vet
He keeps getting red spots and scratches to bleedhis ears smell really bad ive taken him to vet but he charges me alot and only stays well for max a week what do I do about his ear smell
My cat is too fat to wash her butt. So I take a damp paper towel and wash her butt off, (poop is stuck there) I do this twice a day. I noticed that tonight when I wash her butt and even touch her the tops of her hips she automatically licks her front legs. I stop washing her or even touching her back she stops licking. Now she wont even let me touch her lower back at all, even legs. She yells at me. She jumps around and runs just fine. This has gone on for 2 weeks, but now she wont let me clean her up at all. Before she waited for me to clean her butt. I am extremely gentle when I clean her butt. She is spayed too.
it was popped then i cut skin and it was deep with clear things that moved inside
They said yes, it was a fatty tumor but they never aspirated it to look at the cells and confirm. Should we ask that they do that. We are willing to pay for the lab test. We just want to make sure. If it is just a fatty tumor, will it go away if we are able to lower Aries weight by dieting (not having a lot of success on the diet but will continue to do so. He is a large medium dog who probably should weigh about 70 lbs max but he weighs about 100 lbs and as he is getting older we are worried about and want to get his weight down. We feed him Fromm Senior and Lower Activity dog food but I am afraid we are probably feeding him still too much especially since my husband is bad about sharing scraps from his meal. What would be the approximate cups of food he should get a day and is it better to feed him half in the morning and half in the evening. We have 3 other rescues but they are smaller and seem to be fine. Also if the tumor is just a fatty tumor would it still be better to have it removed or does it really matter? Thank you so much.
Developed weepy eye in the last month. As a puppy he did have allergies and out grew them. Our vet gave him two eye drops to administer. What else can we do to eleviate his discomfort?
My Aussie had sterile nodual piniculitis and I bought the medicines online at Allivet. I got a shipment not too long before we had to put him to sleep. I don't want to throw away this life saving expensive medication. How/where can I donate for it to be put to use? Boxes are unopened and they have been kept in the refrigerator.
Dusty is one of 8 kittens from a stray we found (born March 4/2016) All his siblings and his Mother are very affectionate and loving but Dusty will not allow any petting other than the top of his head. He sleeps with me but I better not touch or I will get a nice bite. Sometimes he just jumps up and bites my hand or if I try to pet him he'll move away. I bleed easily so this is becoming serious What can I do Dr. Brown Please help!! Is their a Kitty Boot Camp LOL
No change in diet.vomits 3-4 times a day. Sometimes clear liquid or a bile color
Our dog Rachel is exhibiting symptoms of fecal incontinence, while this has not been officially diagnosed an initial consultation with our vet and recommendations of low residue dog food has helped but is not a long-term solution especially with 2 other dogs.

We adopted her from the local Animal Welfare Rescue site. Their vet nor our own vet could not decide if she had been spaded or not. Her stomach is loose and flexible and would "hide" any scaring. She is now passing a little blood for the last 2 days.
Any ideas on how to calm them down to prevent this? I do have the pheromone spray and spray the areas when they are not in them about twice a month very lightly.
My dog Buttons has bad teeth and she is a senior and I was wondering if there are some dog treats that are good for senior dogs and healthy for their teeth?
We rescued a tiny kitten 15 years ago who had only one eye. We don't know what happened to the other eye. Recently, we noticed her walking into walls and took her for an exam. Her eye looks foggy. The doctor said that she has gone blind. She has managed incredibly well in spite of it. She has memorized the house and our routines very well. Is it possible she only has cataracts? If I could afford to give her back her sight, I most certainly would. Thanks, Dean in Houston, TX
Dear Dr. Brown, I have multiple cats. One of them, Indie, has a bad habit of spray and constantly yowling. In the beginning, we thought it was UTI that cause him spraying, we took him to the vet, after 2 shots, flush and medication, he’s still doing the same thing. My next guess was, his neuter surgery wasn’t completed. I took him to the vet who did his surgery and a second opinion. Both vets said the surgery was perfect. I have used almost every brand of stain / odor spray; vinegar, as some blogs suggested; aluminum foil covered the kitchen counters, walls….., None of them work.
I googled the possible reasons for his behaviours, it indicated stress might be one of the reasons because of multi cats in the same house. So, I bought him Comfort Zone Feliway’s collar to calm him and a bottle of spray, of the same brand, to prevent urine marking. He is still spraying everywhere, yowling all the time.
He loves to go out, I let him out, thinking it might solve the problem for both of us. Then, he got into a fight and came back with a deep wound. I stop letting him out, his spraying and yowling behaviours are getting worse.
I am running out of ideas. Dr. Brown, you have over 300 cats under the same roof. Do you encounter any cats having the similar behaviours? How do you handle it?
Please help. Thank you!!!
What types of skin conditions can be helped by the cold laser? I have two cats with different chronic skin issues. One gets sores on her face and paws. The other has itch issues and chews her fur off. She is on Apoquel which helps,but not 100%.
