• Is the vet double-charging me?

    On December 2nd, 2017, I took my pup to the vet for her very first check-up. She got her rabies shot, a pill for fleas, and we were told that we had to come back on the 28th so she could get the 3 other shots she needed.

    On December 2nd, 2017, I took my pup to the vet for her very first check-up. She got her rabies shot, a pill for fleas, and we were told that we had to come back on the 28th so she could get the 3 other shots she needed. We were told we paid for everything up in the first billing, which I paid in full. The bill looked like this: 12/2/2017 PUPPY/KITTEN EXAM - $53.00 DHPP VACC - $29.50 LEPTO 4WAY VACC FIRST - $30.00 LYME DISEASE VACC FIRST - $44.50 RABIES VACC - 1 YR - $25.50 BIOHAZARD MEDICAL WASTE FEE - $4.00 DRONTAL PLUS 45 LBS AND GREATER - $48.75 Total: $235.25 I have the 'receipt' that shows I paid the $235.25 in full, and my bank statement shows the transaction was processed on 12/04/2017. Now like I said, on the first day she ONLY got the one rabies vaccination. They had us come back on the 28th so she could be given the DHPP, the Lepto and the Lyme shot. Since everything was paid in full, we were allowed to just leave on that day. However, a bit ago we received a letter saying that we still owed them for the 3 shots she got on the 28th. On the most recent letter, it was hand-written that if they don't get a payment and turn it over to a debt collector, we won't be able to pay it unless we pay it in full. Now, they're charging us for the DHPP ($29.50), the Lepto ($30.00) and the Lyme ($44.50). The first letter about this 'remaining payment' said $104 was due (which would be the total of the 3 amounts added up). Am I missing something here about how vets do payments?

  • Why are small dogs too yappy and annoying?

    Pomeranians, Maltese, Yorkies, Bichons, etc. They seem too excited to see people! They’re like cotton balls that follow you around and never leave you alone. Not all are, but MOST so far. I stay far away from them, but occasionally you get little dogs come right up and sniff.

Our doctor said we need to reintroduce her to dog food or she won’t get enough nutrients. We tried but it’s always horrible. Our dog is in great shape and passed her physical exam like she catches frisbee. However, we’re not sure if vitamins and probiotics are enough to give her proper nutrition. Any recommendation?

    My pit got into a fight with a dog , that entered OUR yard. And my dog will be the one put down even though the other dog started it. He has been in multiple situations in which this happened. Other dogs enter OUR property. No leash. No owner in sight. My dog is on probation, this basically was his last string and if the person called animal control, they will put him down no matter what. Do you think its fair other dogs enter our yard, provoke my dog, and my dog will be the one put down? Answers will probably be negative due to opinions on pits.

I used to have one and didn't have any reaction to it until we have it to my grandmother (we moved house). My allergies are bad. I have to have an inhaler, the strongest allergy tablets, I get lumps on my skin, I can't breath well for up to five days after being around a dog, my skin inches until I scratched it red raw. I see things online about just hoovering up after your dog can stop the allergies but I have a feeling my allergies are too bad for me to have a dog.

  • My dog has food aggression?

    My dog is just over one year old, we got him at 12 weeks from a place filled with dogs much larger than him, and from the glimpses we got of the kitchen he was shut in with the other dogs, he probably had to fight to get the food.

    My dog is just over one year old, we got him at 12 weeks from a place filled with dogs much larger than him, and from the glimpses we got of the kitchen he was shut in with the other dogs, he probably had to fight to get the food. Now, he’s tiny, chihuahua x poodle. But both, I’ve heard and from experience, are genetically aggressive breeds. He’s always been aggressive over extra food more than his dinner. Treats, or our food, he will sit and beg, and if he doesn’t get given something fast enough, he will lunge at any nearbye animals, people, objects (the vacuum pipe has taken a beating) But with his dinner food, I can walk right up to him and take it away. I’m unsure of how to calm him.

  • Am i worrying too much about my Dog?

    Best answer: Putting any dog out in the cold is questionable, especially one with no coat to speak of like yours. And your brother needs to train his dog to let yours alone - all of the pit types were bred to be dog-aggressive, and sooner or later yours will snap and that will be the end of your brother's dog.

    Best answer: Putting any dog out in the cold is questionable, especially one with no coat to speak of like yours. And your brother needs to train his dog to let yours alone - all of the pit types were bred to be dog-aggressive, and sooner or later yours will snap and that will be the end of your brother's dog. You need to come up with a compromise solution. Your brother's dog can be confined in his bedroom while no one is at home to supervise, and yours can be brought in out of the cold. And if they object, then offer to split the days - one day his dog stays outdoors, the next day yours does. And when they complain that it's too cold to do that, you have just made your point. The home belongs to both of you - which means you have 'equal rights' to the dogs staying inside.

    yesterday evening my 2 y/o male mixed breed’s eyes became very red. as time passed his entire face / eyes / throat, his underarms, legs, genitials & abdominal area became extremely swollen & red. took him to the vet, they were no help. they gave him a buster collar & sent us home saying it is a possible allergy but that’s it! this morning the redness on his eyes had gone away, although the swelling is still there & the redness on his genitials / abdominal area remains. he is drinking a lot, but eats as normal although he is sick after he eats. he’s also sore to touch. could it be an allergy? he was castrated 2 weeks ago, could it be related to that?
