Question of the Month

shirley ann

Hi. Tottles is very active for her age and weight (gave her a good home when friends went overseas) for the last 3 or 4 days she has been walking with her head down and isn’t as active as usual. she is eating well. I checked her paws and teeth and pressed her muscles to see if she seemed sore, but nothing seems wrong there. Any advise?? Thank you

Hi Shirley Ann, Sorry for the delay in response. Tottles may have a sore neck. It would be best to get her to her veterinarian for a full check if she is still showing this behaviour. Being a Dachshund, there is a worry of disc problems in their backs, which could be causing the problem. Otherwise she may have sore joints from arthritis. With a full clinical exam your vet will be able to assist.  I hope Tottles feels better soon!

She runs 3 time a week 5 km. She is on Montego Adult. Lately, I find small balls of vomit in the garden. As if something upsets her stomach. Is it time to move on to Senior dog food? I can not afford Hills. Is there another brand which is affordable that you would rather recommend? Her boosters, etc all up to date.

Hi. Bonnie was diagnosed with an enlarged heart a couple of months ago. She is on medication. Vetmedin 1.25mg. One tab a day. I was told to give her either cannabis oil or cannabis biscuits? People say they have had amazing results. Do you think it�s a good idea?
