My Veterinarians And Hospital Of Choice

I’m at the Dunnellon Animal Hospital getting puppies up to date on shots.

There are a lot of good things to say about the entire staff and after nine years of being a loyal customer, it’s kinda nice to say, I’d highly recommend the Dunnellon Animal Hospital for your veterinary needs.

Here are photos of the Doctors that are so wonderful to my pups! Doctors Catherine Bailey and Taylor Morgan! They don’t mind teaching me those up to date methods of treatments.

Misty has organized my Breeder files and is very generous with her care and help. My basket of pups gets a little heavy sometimes and I get help carrying the basket to and from my car. To me, that’s exceptional help!
Thru all these years, one person has stood beside me and given me great confidence and guidance…her name is Cheryl Mack, also known as the office manager. Whenever I questioned myself on the care of my pups Cheryl always knew how to offer me encouragement. Cheryl always emphasized that I was doing a great job raising my Shih Tzu. So thank you very very much!
I highly recommend the Dunnellon Animal Hospital for your veterinary needs.

Question: ShihTzu puppie has Loss of Appetite. What are some causes?

ShihTzu puppie has Loss of Appetite.  What are some causes?

Sometimes loss of appetite may be due to a pups constipation.  So be observant as to the bowel movements…AT ALL TIMES.
I always suggest taking a look at the consistency of the poop.  Look for blood, or mucus or just simply too hard or too loose.
Then you can talk knowledgeably with your veterinarian when they ask you “how long has the pup had this problem”
Because they will ask you that question.  They will ask for a stool sample.

Question: Why is my 8 week old ShihTzu is shaking?

As an ongoing commitment to you, we are spontaneously posting new question content to educate our loyal AceOfPups customers.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

my 8 week old shih tzu is shaking?

More likely you possibly mean trembling…..this could be simply an uneasy feeling the pup is experiencing…OR…
it could mean the pup is about to go into a hypoglycemic attack.

Your puppie medicine cabinet is important to have stocked with necessary items for such happenings.
Nutrical is a vitamin paste that comes in a tube, (idon’t buy the one for puppy, it is too runny) buy the one that says for dog on it.
Squeeze a finger tip full into the pups mouth. For either situation, the uneasiness or the onslaught of the hypoglycemic attack.
Nutrical stabilizes their little systems. It is paramount to have this on hand.
Be watchful and call your veterinarian and explain these symptoms and get their advice as well.

Question: What causes my pup to make gagging noises?

As an ongoing commitment to you, we are spontaneously posting new question content to educate our loyal AceOfPups customers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What causes my pup to make gagging noises?

Well, the first thought that comes to mind is Kennel Cough. Kennel Cough is like our common cold…
it could get worse,or it may clear up without any complications….
BUT, just like our common cold, it has to take it’s course which is between 10 and 21 days.
So please take your pet to the veterinarian and let them prescribe an antibiotic, usually Clavamox.
The second thing that comes to mind is gagging on their food and or the stuffing out of a toy….
so many guesses….so of course I’ll make the suggestion to take your pup to a veterinarian.

Really, you want to be observant of your pups actions and play time, in order to help you with those
nagging thoughts of “now what’ll I do”.
Getting to know your veterinarian will be easier on the wallet if you can simply make the call and
ask questions and ask what remedies are available for the situation your pup may be experiencing.
