Cockapoo Panting

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   July 31, 2012 07:06

Question:  Hi guys!
But my 12 year old cockapoo pants heavily after having a chew stick, rawhide or even a beef bone.
Should I stop giving them to her? This has just started in the last little while. The other two dogs don't seem to have any problem.
Thank you.

Answer:  Fay,  likely the panting is a result of strenuous chewing or eating for a prolonged period and not breathing as deeply as she should while she is chewing.  Her body is telling her she needs to get her oxygen levels up and therefore she pants.  It could be just aging and reduced lung capacity or it could be other things.  Does she pant more when she exercises.
Thanks for the question, Dr. D.

Inflamed Ear

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   July 13, 2012 20:50

Question:  We have a young golden retriever, a farm dog.  She has one ear that looks perfectly normal, the other ear is red, itchy and dirty.  We do have farm cats, does she have ear mites?  The second question is how can we keep her out of the water troughs?  She is in the water continually, makes a mess in the troughs.  She is current on her shots, etc.

Answer:  Sounds like your dog is the victim of her forays into the water troughs.  Retriever ears are prone to this ailment because they don't dry out properly, good luck trying to keep her out of the water.  Stop at the clinic and pick up a tube of medication, changes the ph of the ear back to what is should be, simply to apply and inexpensive.  Dr. D.

Another Tick Question

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   May 28, 2012 13:33

Question:  We pick ticks daily, Jackie the Golden had a full tick that she probably scratched at,  so I pulled it off.  The problem is there is a wound the size of a nickel or slightly larger, skin is ripped off.   She can’t lick it so put some antibiotic  on it.  Are there any potential problems with this?

Answer:  Not usually. After couple days with polysporin or hibitane ointment can change to one with a steroid in it to reduce inflammation for a couple more days. Dr. Lisa Waymann DVM
