My golden retriever just turned 10 and he has been really lethargic lately. His hips are still pretty OK, but he has a bit of dysplasia. What worries me most is that he spends so much time lying down and he has so little drive to do anything.
Whenever he lies down on his dogbed, he breathes really heavily and forcedly (almost a wheezing sound).
Take the dog into the vet and tell them exactly what you told us.
He might need something as simple as some pain meds every once in a while, or it could be something more serious that needs to be examined, but honestly the vets the only one that can help you with this type of question. We're really no help on dog health unless its minor cuts and scrapes.
Hey, /an/. A couple of hours ago, my dog snatched 1-2 cookies from the counter, and since then she's been really hyper and is breathing very heavily. No puking or anything like that, but I'm still worried.
The chocolate in the cookies was a ghiradelli, 70% dark chocolate baking bar. The whole bar was cut into the mix but there was only a bit in each cookie.
How worried should I be? Sorry, I know this isn't a vet but I'm just worried and I thought I would check before I tried finding a vet open this late on Christmas.
>>2023172 Those are two symptoms that do indeed show when a dog has consumed chocolate. Baking chocolate is one of the chocolates with the highest amounts of theobromine in it, which is what's poisonous to doggies.
Induce vomiting as much as you can, try to get him to drink water.
Here's a calculator on this website to help see what the severity is: http://www.vets-now.com/pet-owners/dog-care-advice/dog-eaten-chocolate/

>>2023107 I go my puppy in October, I don't think I have any presents this year, family and friends are buying my puppy stuff lol. I always remember the other dogs birthdays too, nothing as loserish as baking them a chum cake, just remember it. Christmas is special tho, I put gravy on everything and Ofcourse they get elite tier scraps.
>>2023102 >my 60 year old mother has never liked dogs and always said there will never be a dog in the house >7 years ago her stepson demanded a puppy so we got one >she instantly fell in love with it, claiming it as her own
She loves that dog more than life itself...I'm seriously worried for her mental stability once it dies, she freaks out and breaks down if he even so much as starts dry heaving.
I got a puppy for my girlfriend. Now I know I didn't want to keep the poor thing boxed away for long so I bought him and kept him on hold for as long as I could, which was this afternoon. Any later and the shop would be closed until after christmas, and the christmas puppy would no longer be a christmas puppy. So now I have the trouble of finding a way to keep the pup as a surprise until last minute.
I looked online and the box method was suggested, but that doesn't seem very logical. Couldn't the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I want to make Sea Fritters/ Seaweed Puffs like I had once in Naples, but all the recipes I can find do not specify what kind of seaweed they use. I hope I can find it in an Asian grocery. Can anyone tell what it is?
Clean litter box once a day. Never have an exception. if you believe smell is a problem, buy something called NODOR, spray directly on litter inside box. Works like magic. leave the cat alone until she approaches you. Pet her when this happens. Sit next to her for the first few times she goes to eat. Good luck and enjoy your kitty
Enjoy you new life companion, you seem to be doing great so far! Make sure to give her lots of stimulus, and if she doesn't play with one kind of toy, experiment with others. My cat won't touch dingle balls and similar, but anything with feathers gets destroyed. Laser pointer seems like a win for lots of cats too
>>2022901 they have some neat behaviours and are pretty to look at. can be fairly easy to care for, depending on species. just depends what you are looking for.
whites tree frogs, pic related, are probably the best combination of activity level, moderate size, and ability to tolerate occasional brief handling.
There are frogs that are small and very active but cannot be handled. There are frogs that are huge and mostly sit perfectly still for days at a time. Some have very fussy care requirements. Broad range of froge.
>>2022885 You're giving us literally zero information. How the fuck do you expect anyone to know what's wrong with your dog when all you tell us is "he bites his foot. How fix? what happen!!!". Take him to a vet.
