Fri. the vet gave him a shot for vomiting/nausea and a Rx for Carafate every 8 hrs. His blood work showed he is very anemic. What natural remedy do you suggest? -Judy-

Is my dog in pain at night?

I have a 10.5 year old yellow lab. She is eating fine, drinking fine and pottying fine. She walks well, has very little arthritic symptoms in the day. She gets one or two daily walks that are about 30 min. each. She gets a good diet, vitamins, pumpkin. She does have a ton of fatty tumors all over. The issue is that she groans/moans throughout the night. NOT DREAMING. It would seem she is in pain, but it stops as soon as she is up and she is walking and going about just fine. I would think if she was in that much pain there would be symptoms in the day that would be there. I had a blood panel done on her and everything came back in normal range. We have used Arthro-Ionx and there doesn't seem to be any difference. Have you ever experienced this? Thank you. -Michelle-

Dog with Kidney Issues

My dog has some kidney issues. I noticed one of the ingredients was phosphorus. Can I give this safely to my dog. Her BUN was 40 when I took her to the vet today for a checkup. I have given it to her since receiving the product 3 days ago. My vet says her BUN was higher than the last time. We were giving her 1/2 tsp twice a day but she does seem to be doing better with her arthritis symptoms. -Joyce-

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-

Dog has Rear Leg Pain

I have a 4 year old female German Shepherd (Charger).  She loves to play ball. This past July, I noticed that she might of strained herself doing so.  I took her to her vet, and the vet did some motions tests on her neck, back, etc and told us it could be sterile meningitis. So Charger was placed on prednisone for a week.  It look likes she got better, but not 100%. About a month later, Charger complained of pain again towards her lower back/hip area. So we took her back to the vet. The vet drew blood for tick diseases and the tests came back negative. She also took xrays and showed us a bit of hip dysplasia. The vet put Charger on Previcox 227mg once daily. It seemed to help, she was more active but still not 100%. Charger had another episode several weeks ago and back we went to the vet. She was given more Previcox, it seems to help, but lately, Charger complains (yelps in pain) after she gets up and will limp her right hind leg. Once she gets moving, she seems to be better. Once she goes out into the yard, she seems better. Could it be leg or back cramping, bad disk or ? Thank you!  -Louie-

Rat Terrier with Skin Irritation

My rat terrier Molly has begun scratching and gnawing a lot lately. Her skin is bright pink and irritated looking. She also keeps an odor that we cannot seem to get rid of (although she is an outside dog who hates water so bathing occurs occasionally). I'm not sure how to treat this. Do you think your product could soothe the irritation? -Pam-

Dachshund with back leg weakness

3 days ago my 4 year old dachshund would not jump down from the couch. When I picked her up she cried briefly. Today her back legs are barely holding her up, she staggers and wobbles. Then drops her butt to the ground. I carried her down the steps to pee and she did and pooped although very wobbly. Do you think this is a back or disc injury? -Kim-
