re: Recommendation for 12yr old lab with hip issues? - LSUVET82
I would have some basic bloodwork done to assess liver and kidney values. Always recommend X-rays to see where exactly the main issue is. I would at minimum start him on NSAIDs like previcox, meloxicam, or rimadyl. I have plenty of patients who treat daily for years without major side effects ...

Epi-otic is just a routine cleaner. It also has a drying agent in it so using it after he swims is important to prevent that moist environment which is ideal for yeast and bacteria. Careful with qtips. He shakes his head and you punch that thing through an ear drum you'll have a real problem plus qt...

re: Bladder stones for dogs - LSUVET82
In a min schnauzer with pancreatitis and reoccurring bladder stones I would have your vet check for cushings disease. It's a treatable condition where the body releases excessive amounts of cortisol which in turn can cause increased calcium excretion in urine causing calcium oxalate stones. That's ...

re: Flea and tick prevention - LSUVET82
If you want a very palatable pill for monthly flea and tick prevention then ask your vet about Nexgard. First pill to prevent fleas and ticks. Trifexis does heartworms, intestinal parasites, and fleas but not ticks. Comfortis just fleas. Yes trifexis does cause vomiting in some but is not the life...

re: Yes or no on giving your dog the bone, please _ Pic included - LSUVET82
while I tell all my clients that it is probably best to avoid bones because I don't want to be the one who said it was ok then something went wrong. I will give my dog a long bone from a deer and sometimes a bone from a pork shoulder. Just take it from them when it starts getting small. I have se...

re: Worming pups/momma dogs - LSUVET82
Start with deworming mom, some intestinal parasites can be passed through milk and that will help keep them parasite free. Lots of intestinal parasites can be passed trans-placentally so pups may already have worms but if mom was being treated with Ivomec she should be parasite free. Keep puppies in...

VPI is the biggest, ASPCA has good plans. You just have to get online or call and see what's best for you. Rates very like people depending on age, breed, desired coverage, current conditions. But believe me it helps with multiple animals. Covers vaccines, dentals, heartworm meds, emergencies, etc...

Thoracic surgery in a 11 year old dog is pretty invasive but like I said they are not putting a gun to your head. They give you options, you make the decisions. They do have pet insurance, just nobody thinks there dog will ever get sick. It's very affordable and covers upwards to 90-95% of bills...

I understand your frustration, I deal with it every single day. Unfortunately medicine is not free, and sometimes it isn't an exact science. If you had a pneumonia you would be hospitalized for days and could acquire bills greater than 50k-100k, and could still possibly die. That's medicine. You wo...

Well there Jake cultures can take anywhere from 3-10 days to have results depending on what you are culturing for. You can do serology and PCR testing but still takes several days. Plus to get good samples from lungs you need to do a bronchial alveolar lovage which may be contraindicated if pet is n...

What most pet owners don't realize is vets treat your pets like a doctor would treat you ill mother. We like to find a diagnosis not just say oh well it's sick and old lets knock this one off.
