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!

I administered Bravecto for large dogs in the 1st week of December 2018 and this dose should have been good until the end of February 2019, but I found a very engorged large tick on her on Friday. should I be changing to another brand of tick and flea control. I did have very successful results with Bravecto and am using it ever since it�s introduction to the market, on recommendation from my Vet.
