  • Is the vet double-charging me?

    On December 2nd, 2017, I took my pup to the vet for her very first check-up. She got her rabies shot, a pill for fleas, and we were told that we had to come back on the 28th so she could get the 3 other shots she needed.

    On December 2nd, 2017, I took my pup to the vet for her very first check-up. She got her rabies shot, a pill for fleas, and we were told that we had to come back on the 28th so she could get the 3 other shots she needed. We were told we paid for everything up in the first billing, which I paid in full. The bill looked like this: 12/2/2017 PUPPY/KITTEN EXAM - $53.00 DHPP VACC - $29.50 LEPTO 4WAY VACC FIRST - $30.00 LYME DISEASE VACC FIRST - $44.50 RABIES VACC - 1 YR - $25.50 BIOHAZARD MEDICAL WASTE FEE - $4.00 DRONTAL PLUS 45 LBS AND GREATER - $48.75 Total: $235.25 I have the 'receipt' that shows I paid the $235.25 in full, and my bank statement shows the transaction was processed on 12/04/2017. Now like I said, on the first day she ONLY got the one rabies vaccination. They had us come back on the 28th so she could be given the DHPP, the Lepto and the Lyme shot. Since everything was paid in full, we were allowed to just leave on that day. However, a bit ago we received a letter saying that we still owed them for the 3 shots she got on the 28th. On the most recent letter, it was hand-written that if they don't get a payment and turn it over to a debt collector, we won't be able to pay it unless we pay it in full. Now, they're charging us for the DHPP ($29.50), the Lepto ($30.00) and the Lyme ($44.50). The first letter about this 'remaining payment' said $104 was due (which would be the total of the 3 amounts added up). Am I missing something here about how vets do payments?

  • Help. My dog's vet can't fit her in for two weeks. Is there something seriously wrong with my dog?

    She's 16. She's a terrier mutt, maybe a foot or so tall from the floor to the top of her head. She used to be a little chunky, but over the past couple years she's gotten bone skinny.

    She's 16. She's a terrier mutt, maybe a foot or so tall from the floor to the top of her head. She used to be a little chunky, but over the past couple years she's gotten bone skinny. She's also become diabetic, so she drinks, drinks, drinks, drinks, drinks--like seriously crazy amounts of water. Anyway, over the last two days, she's stopped eating and drinking. She doesn't show any signs of distress, though. She's energetic and still runs around and does her thing. The only thing that's different is she's not eating or drinking. She goes to her food bowl, looks into it like she's going to, but then it's like she decides not to. The weirder thing is the drinking. She never not drinks. I know she's super old, but do you think she maybe just has a stomach bug or something like that. Or is this a sign that she's about to die?!?!

    So I’ve had a husky for 7 months and since we’ve gotten him he’s always destroyed everything. And he recently he had surgery because he ate something that caused bloackage which was something he destroyed. Before everyone would always say it was because he was pup but now he’s almost 8 months old he’s I. Training class but he’s still destroying everything!! His vet said to take him out because he’s probably bored so we started walking him 3 times a day and 1 and a half hour at the dog park. But guess what he’s still destroying things even if we leave it out of his reach he always finds something. We’re just scared he’s going to eat something agai. And need surgery again cause it moa something we can afford on a monthly basis he just had one last motn. Any tips?

She does good home alone, and as soon as we sit down she is happy and wants to be right next to us. But how do we get her to chill out when we are cooking/cleaning/etc. any advice would help :)

  • Why are small dogs too yappy and annoying?

    Pomeranians, Maltese, Yorkies, Bichons, etc. They seem too excited to see people! They’re like cotton balls that follow you around and never leave you alone. Not all are, but MOST so far. I stay far away from them, but occasionally you get little dogs come right up and sniff.

  • Does my dog have asthma?

    Best answer: My dog also does that sometimes too. I researched it and it could be because of Asthma, but that isn't always the case. Sometimes dogs get this thing called reverse sneezing. Is sounds like they are in a lot of pain and it is like a wheezing fit for about 1-2 minutes. That could also be a possibility. Although... show more
    Best answer: My dog also does that sometimes too. I researched it and it could be because of Asthma, but that isn't always the case. Sometimes dogs get this thing called reverse sneezing. Is sounds like they are in a lot of pain and it is like a wheezing fit for about 1-2 minutes. That could also be a possibility. Although I am not completely sure, I would look up reverse sneezing on YouTube and look at a couple of videos. If it is like what your dog has, at least you know what allergy/disease your dog has. If it's not, I would suggest going to the Vet and making sure everything is ok. Best of luck!

  • Does anybody feed their dog Beneful Grain Free, Gluten Free food and have recently been having problems?

    My dog's been pooping like crazy, both in and out of the house, which is unlike her. Nothing's changed except that we just got her a new bag of dog food. She's been eating this stuff for months though, so we're just not sure what's going on. No diarrhea though!

  • Do miniature Schnauzer mixes shed more than the pure breed itself?

    I'm adopting a miniature Schnauzer mix, the mother is a pure miniature Schnauzer and they don't know who the father is, but my question is do the puppies of these too shed more than they would do if they were pure. As I know the pure breed sheds less. I'm curious

    I have an unneutered male dog and a spayed female dog. In the past week my male dog has been acting like my female dog is in heat.(not as bad but still) He is whining when he can't see her and he licks her pee and licks her parts when she comes from outside. Now, I read that it may be because my female dog has a UTI, but she doesn't show any signs. She doesn't seem to be in distress when going pee. She hasn't had any accidents in the house and from what I can tell there is no blood in her pee. Could it still be a UTI or is there maybe another reason? I'm planning on taking her to the vet, but just thought I'd get suggestions before I go. Thanks!
