I need some advice my sons dog which is a mix breed had a seizure 3 days ago I took im to the emergency hospital they pulled blood work the results came back showing no reason why the seizure happened. However they told me to keep a record of how many times seizures happen and then they may decide to give medication for them. I feel that he has some brain damage caused by the seizure. The reason why i say this is because his eyes are dialated and have been since he had the seizures also he guards my american bulldog he has even attacked me twice as well as causing a fight between my 2 dogs. Will he ever get better or is it best to have him put down? The dog walks back in fourth guarding my male neutered american bull dog.View Thread

I have an american bulldog that I rescued about a year ago. I need some advice he is the best natured dog while in doors. However, when I take him out doors he is terrified. I have talked to my regular vet about giving him some medication that will help him over come his fear of the out doors. Furthermore, he has done this every since I have had him. I am to the point now to come to terms with having him put to sleep. Is it fair to him to live in fear? Is there medication that I can request from my vet that may help him? He is very happy and a normal dog while indoors. Is there anything else I can do to help him over come this fear. He has pulled me down several times and has caused several injuries that have required surgery. Is it best to have him put down?View Thread
I have a boxer that is a little over 2 years of age. I just noticed him digging at his ear. He has never had any problems with his ears before. My question is how do you know when your dog has an ear infection? and what are the treatments for an ear infection. My dog is very healthy and has been neutered and has all of his shot up to date. I am worried about his ear. Any answers will help me.View Thread
Thank you Dr.Sandy. Just to be on the safe side I am going to take Zander to my Vet tomorrow. I appreciate all of your help. You gave me great advice several months ago when my american bulldog had a growth on his tail. I had the growth removed and Tyson is doing great. One more question I have for you. Tyson is afraid of any noise that occurs outside. He will actually stand there and shake. He has been like this since I rescued him about a year ago. Do you have any recommendations for any medication that I can request from my vet to help him with this problem? It is terrible to watch him get so upset when he is out doors. It is almost to the point of coming to terms of having him put to sleep. Is it fair for him to live in fear? The weird thing about this is that he is the happest dog while indoors. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.View Thread
I have 2 male dogs Zander is a boxer and Tyson is an American bulldog. I took them both today to be neutered. They were both giving a pain shot which is called buprenex post sx pain injection. They were both sent home with tramadol 50 mg. My concern is they both act like they are on some very strong medication. Zander my boxer will stand up and start swaying back and forth like he is intoxicated. Does this shot make them very tired? and can tramadol be giving when they have had this shot? How do I know when to give them there tramadol? Zander is whining like he is in pain. Would it be safe to give him one of his pain pills?View Thread
I took both of my dogs to get their annual vaccines today. They both received DHLP-PV, Coronavirus, Rabies and there was a new vaccine that my vet said that they needed which is LEPTO vaccine. Since they have both been home they are extremely lethargic and very thirsty. What is the LEPTO vaccine for and is it a required vaccine? They did not get it last year. Is this a new vaccine? Are these symptoms that they both have normal to have after getting shots? Should I be concerned? Any information would be greatly appreciated.View Thread
