    As of recent, my dog, Ali (13) has been making a mess lately (we assume it's blood) whenever he sits down and scratches himself. So me and my dad decided to take him to the vet to get examined and after his examination, the doctor told us that Ali may have tumors and could require surgery. He...

That night she was pretty groggy so she wasn't very active. However, she's a very hyper dog and she loves to play with the other dog in...

    Looking for risks and benefits in the TPLO for a CCL tear. Also, is it possible (if so, how common) to inadvertently fracture a dog's fibula during surgery?

    My 8 year old 40 lb Lasa/Bearded Collie mix named Newman has a partially torn ACL in his back left leg. At first he was not able to use his leg at all and we were certain we should have surgery done to fix it, but we had to put it off a couple of weeks due to travel plans and we knew he would...

    Our Brittany, Charlie, recently had some x-rays done where they found that his liver was twice the size as it should be. This vet charged around $400 for the x-ray.

    Hi everyone, This afternoon, the groomer found what appeared to be the entry point for a foxtail on my puppy's shoulder. (I have a seven-month old cocker spaniel.) The groomer told me to take her to the vet right away so that the vet could cut out the foxtail. When I took our dog to the vet an...

    My six-month-old cocker spaniel was spayed 6 days ago and has been having an ok recovery. She was clearly in pain the first several days and we had to go back to the vet for an additional pain shot and she took metacam (sp?) for several days as well for her pain. During that time, she ate...

    My puppy is a Maltese/Shih-Tzu mix and he is 8 months old. He was perfectly house trained and never had accidents. I leave a pad out in the living room of my apartment and anytime he needs to urinate he goes to his pad, circles a few times and goes on the pad. He was good about it for a few...

    My dog recovered very well from her ACL surgery. No limping, no soreness, no pain.. as if it nothing happened. The post surgery x-rays were recommended by the vet and it is not included in the surgery fee, so I have to pay about $200 for them. Is it medically necessary? If something is wrong...
