    Purulent. The word is purulent. Not pu**y. Because, well, obviously.

    Hope your dog is feeling better OP!
  2. Intentional poisonings are actually pretty rare,...

    Intentional poisonings are actually pretty rare, which is way many vets discount the possibility. I think I have seen one in over a decade in vet med.

    I would be suspicious of viral or bacterial...

    Can you put a crate/bedding out with signs to please not disturb and why? I think many people would leave it alone if they knew why it was there and important.

    I would start agility first, because it is much easier to train a dog used to working both up close and at a distance to them work closely than the other way around. Many obedience dogs have trouble...

    You mentioned emailing twice about homework being posted late, how late are we talking? Just curious as to timeframes, as emailing about it being a hour or two late versus a couple of days late would...

    In order for your dog to be AKC registered all of his lines had to be as well, so saying that it's not a backyard breeder because they're registered holds no weight. Your pup is from a BYB who...

    For our really bad cats we suggest Dasaquin and Adequan injections. Both seem to work independently so together they are even better.

    I would also look into high dose gabapentin for...

    Also, who does the procedure would depend a bit on where the retained testicle is and the vets comfort level. Sometimes you can feel them in the inguinal area, other times it's going on a treasure...

    For a large breed dog the testosterone is more important to help close growth plates and decrease risk of orthopedic problems and some cancers down the road. It is generally reccomended to wait...

    The OP is the one who said vets don't know about this, which is absolutely incorrect.

    Add me to the group who can't figure out what drug they would have given in an ER that would have killed the...

    In 8 days from lost to owners contacting the rescue they already adopted out a heartworm positive dog to a new family? Seems a bit odd to me.

    Not that it helps you much now, but some clinics order their own custom rabies tags so they can be any shape and still be a legit/local tag.

    Second, again, no help now, but always take a...

    Fever, increased white count and neck pain I'm betting some sort of encephalitis.

    I'd also bet the kidney values are incidental findings, either due to unwillingness to drink due to pain or just...

    Neck pain? I'd also potentially be concerned about megaesophagus.

    I'd start with ruling out neck pain, as that can radiate up into the face and down the forelimbs, then maybe radiographs to check...

    You may want to look into a ground transport, it's safer than flying esp this time of year. I cannot say enough good things about Coast2Coast transport, Brandy takes great care of the dogs while...

    There's also a product called Tuf Foot that can help to harden/toughen the pads themselves so they don't need boots. Boots can be very helpful in the winter but for sand/swimming I would be...

    At her age definately a vet visit. I'm suspicious of IBD type issues or constipation.

    I personally wouldn't, but I wouldn't do an amputation for any reason in an 11year old dog. Especially since most dogs that have one cruciate tear also tear the other, so chances are he also has...

    I'm not sure. I know it can be difficult to find the right one sometimes so it was the left one they kept, maybe just to make it easier later if there were problems. I wish I could remember now why...

    Can't speak for the OP, but my purebred dog from rescue came to me as a result of a breeder gone off the deep end and being shut down for hoarding/abuse. She had some pretty good bloodlines but we...

    Benadryl can actually make cats hyper/more excited and is generally not a vets reccomended sedative.

    There are however, oral sedatives that owners could give at home (prescribed by vet) before...

    Our adoption fees are about $300 for the breed specific rescue I work with. It depends a lot on the breed and demand for the dog, but I know at $300 we're barely breaking even most of the time.

    Was the ultrasound done by your regular vet or by a boarded specialist? Either an internist or radiologist.

    If you haven't seen an internal medicine specialist yet that would be my next step.
