• 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?

Our dog is in great shape and passed her physical exam like she catches frisbee. However, we’re not sure if vitamins and probiotics are enough to give her proper nutrition. Any recommendation?

  • 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.

    My pit got into a fight with a dog , that entered OUR yard. And my dog will be the one put down even though the other dog started it. He has been in multiple situations in which this happened. Other dogs enter OUR property. No leash. No owner in sight. My dog is on probation, this basically was his last string and if the person called animal control, they will put him down no matter what. Do you think its fair other dogs enter our yard, provoke my dog, and my dog will be the one put down? Answers will probably be negative due to opinions on pits.

I used to have one and didn't have any reaction to it until we have it to my grandmother (we moved house). My allergies are bad. I have to have an inhaler, the strongest allergy tablets, I get lumps on my skin, I can't breath well for up to five days after being around a dog, my skin inches until I scratched it red raw. I see things online about just hoovering up after your dog can stop the allergies but I have a feeling my allergies are too bad for me to have a dog.

    My dog is just over one year old, we got him at 12 weeks from a place filled with dogs much larger than him, and from the glimpses we got of the kitchen he was shut in with the other dogs, he probably had to fight to get the food. Now, he’s tiny, chihuahua x poodle. But both, I’ve heard and from experience, are genetically aggressive breeds. He’s always been aggressive over extra food more than his dinner. Treats, or our food, he will sit and beg, and if he doesn’t get given something fast enough, he will lunge at any nearbye animals, people, objects (the vacuum pipe has taken a beating) But with his dinner food, I can walk right up to him and take it away. I’m unsure of how to calm him.
