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...

re: is the vet taking us for a ride before he has to put our dog down? Update pg 3 - LSUVET82
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. Some diseases are curable and others are not but with that being said you need diagnostics to determine an ...

From my experiences ticks are extremely fond of pine straw. Have had several clients that have had major tick infestations from having pine straw replaced around their houses in flower beds.

re: OT Vets - Dog food question - LSUVET82
What to feed dogs is hands down one of the biggest arguments among vets and pet owners. Pet owners swear we get kick backs by recommending Science Diet. I can promise you the only time I got free science diet was in vet school. They throw us a little lunch and learn about twice a year and that's it...

re: Dog eye infection - what am I dealing with? - LSUVET82
Difficult to say with just picture. Dogs can get meibomian cysts which look similar. Sometimes can be cleared with some antibiotic eye ointment. Some have to be surgically removed. As long as its not directly rubbing on cornea which can cause corneal ulcers then you can probably wait and monitor it....

Prices in veterinary medicine can very.
