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!

Greetings Dear Sir/Madam, I trust that you are well Angel cannot stand for long and seems to be found leaning against something when she is tied. She has a new habit on standing with her left hand and leg on the coach and the right hand and leg on the floor and lately seems to have just the right hand on the floor and the rest onto of the coach Seems worrying as when I give her a bath as well, she seems to quiver after a while as she cant seem to stand long Thank you

Dear Sir/Madam I hope that you are well. A few years ago,, I used a Dip to control ticks and fleas on my dogs. What would you suggest is the best dip to use that will keep ticks and fleas away as our area has alot of grass. I would really appreciate your assistance. Regards Kim
