Hi My 2 year old blue staffy has dermatitis on his paws.. its really bad on his right paw he is OCD licking it all the time I feel so sorry for him I want to help relief the itch..My previous vet gave me norcoe cream and I constantly use malaseb shampoo on his paws to try and reduce the inflammation. My vet has told me he is allergic to some sort of grass. I have recently just moved back to SYD from the Gold Coast and Billy was always in the salt water as you can take your dogs to the beach in QLD. I think the salt water kept the reaction at bay but now I cant seem to keep the redness and swelling down on his paw.Is there any natural solutions I can use to help relief this constant itch for him, I have read iodine diluted in water might help??Please help me help BillyRegards Heidi Horan
hiWhat is your opinion of desexing a male dog at 4 months? What are the major adv and disadv, apart from reduced risk of sex organ, prostate cancers and escaping and aggression to get to females?What specifically is the risk associated with the longer juvenile period Ito behavior and skeletal and muscle development delays? Will my staffy become tall with little muscle because of it?Love your show, thanks Bev.
my little 16 year old terrypoo has mouth cancer which l have had removed 4 to 5. Times. Growth keeps coming back but dog happy otherwise. Bondi vet did an eposode about chemo pearls added in after growth removed. I would like to ask my vet if this is possible for my boy. Would anyone know which episode this was? Thank you for any help.
I have 4 pet degu's. 3 of them are very healthy but one has been quite ill the last couple of days. Where I live there are no vets that know anything about them to treat him. First thing in the morning when I fed him he was perfectly fine then after a couple of hours he started to look like he was choking, grinding his teeth a lot and struggling to breathe. Later that night he started to get worse, there was blood coming out of his mouth and I thought that he had given up because he wasn't moving. He also wont eat or drink, I tried to get him to drink from a syringe. He still wouldn't take it. Its now been 3 days and he doesn't seem to be getting any better but he is able to walk and get about. I still haven't seen him eat or drink. I really don't know what to do so if you could offer some help and advice that would be great. thanks

My Cavalier King Charles spaniel has been very ill . I took him too a vet and he was very bloated. He was very ill and has a double heart murmur. Vet had to give him 3 enemas before impacted faeces came out and it was quite bloody. Now on antibiotics as well as his heart medicine. I had been feeding him a kibble before. Can anyone help me with a suitable diet as kibble or that brand doesn't suit him
