Diabetic Dog (Chihuahua)

My 10 y.o. Chihuahua has had diabetes 4 the past 1 1/2 - 2yrs. She's on insulin, had numerous miner problems, like some skin problems. Everything has been monitored & controlled. We've done numerous curves, fructosime, random glucose test. All this & more has been closely documented days, times, numbers from numerous tests, so random glucose test can be exactly compared 2 said tests. Lately she's been losing weight about 1/2lb every 2-3 weeks, her doctor has increased her food gradually, she still has a good glucose level. She is in season & doesn't seem 2 feel well. She seems that maybe her glucose level maybe low? After her feeding & insulin, within a 2 1/2 hr. after feeding. Also on occasion she is licking at her urine? I am going 2 take her 2 vet 1st thing in a.m. I'm curious 2 know what your thoughts are? I'm not sure if I've given u enough info, knowing that so much depends on gathered info? Basically I'm most curious as 2 why she seems 2 having low glucose signs after regular food & insulin? Does her being in season have any bearing on glucose levels? -Becky-

Pomeranian with pain when picked up

Our Pomeranian Mango is 10 years old, and yelps when picked up. We took her to a vet who gave her an x-ray to ensure nothing was broken. He said that he could not determine what was causing her pain. She occasionally will lift up her back right paw. She runs and walks very good but only would yelp when picked up or when she jumps on the couch. -Kerry-

My Pitbull is having severe skin issues

My dog is a healthy pit bull, 65 pounds, who joined me from the pound in January. He seems to have constant skin problems - rashes, dry skin, scratching and itching all the time. I have taken him to 3 separate vets and they prescribed pills - Rimadyl, Prednisone, Amitriptyline, Ketoconazole, Cephalexin, Diphenhydramine - but these have done nothing for him. I did see his skin problems clear up when I switched him over to a grain-free diet. I now feed him Taste-of-the-Wild which he loves and has no grains. The reason I am writing you today is that my dog now has a new problem. It has just showed up recently. There are areas of his skin under his coat that have become dry and scabby. For some reason, these areas seem to show up in straight lines that are 2-3 inches in length. I am worried because these are all new and they all showed up at the same time. They occur at the same time that fleas are tormenting my dog. I have ordered Comfortis and will soon begin my dog on this anti-flea medicine. Also, I have special flea bath stuff that kills the fleas. I plan to treat my house to get rid of fleas because they get back on my dog shortly after the baths. Do you think Derma-Ionx will help my dog? Or do you have any other suggestions? Thanks. -Mickey-

Retired Greyhound is suffering from joint stiffness

I have retired racers (Greyhounds), and one of my girls that is 11 is a little stiff since the weather turned colder. She still jumps on the bed, and runs a little, but I just want to give her something to help. I tried other products from Springtime and my dogs in the past have ended up with cancer. All of my Rotts, and Dobies. I am afraid to give anything that will hurt her. I am part of a Greyhound Rescue and I love my kids. -Terry-

Dog with Chronic Ear Infections

I have a 2yr old black lab male that has been getting ear infections on a bi-weekly basis. The vet has supplied use with some Animax ointment 1oz and that works but only temporarily.  We have changed our food from the Exclusive Large breed to Taste of Wild Salmon. That helped with slowing down the re-occurring infection.  Also he sheds tons of hair, more than our first lab. I have thought about seeing an allergist, but am afraid their answer would be steroid shots. I would prefer to find the cause of the solution so I can rid this from his environment. Thanks for all your help. Jeff

Dalmatian with Crusty Spots on Back

My 10 month old Dalmatian girl gets these crusty little spots on her back, I suspect that it is an inflamed hair follicle that uses puss, which crusts up and looks like acne. Eventually the hair falls out. Sometimes she has more of them, sometimes less. She loves to swim in the ocean every day (I live in Miami beach- humidity?) Do you think your product would help? Thank you so much for your help. I have her from Dalmatian rescue and at our last fundraiser, I saw that lots of Dalmatians suffer from that! If I found a solution it would definitely be very popular amongst the Dalmatian community.  Regards, Anja with Charlie

Dog has been diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy

I am using the Arthro-IonX for the last 3 months just found out my dog has degenerative myelopathy not hip dysphasia or arthritis. Should I switch to use the Promaxol? I am sure he does have arthritis too, he has been crying at night a little, which I would believe he needs a little stronger pain killer I have been using Arthro-IonX twice a day. It seems to help, but what are your thoughts? Thank you, Patti

My dog has hip dysplasia, should we consider surgery?

My dog has been diagnosed with hip dysplasia. His left hip is slightly dislocated and it hurts him. He is on anti-inflammatory twice every day. He has pain to jump or to climb steps. Now we are speculating if we should go for surgery or not. Can you suggest if there is a way to avoid surgery and my dog lives happy. He is 20 pounds and a mix of shih-tzu and retriever we guess. Your response and any advice is very much appreciated. Thank you. -Arjun-
