Hey doc, my male lab is 15 years old and is starting to have problems with his hips. I did some research on hip dysplacia. Other than the recent hip problem he's still healthy I would hate to put him down. Is there any medication to help him.

Sorry for the delayed answer

Bunny hunter. If the lump is still there I would get it looked at. Could be a cyst or small tumor

Rob hunt. Most likely they are fatty rumors but I would have them checked

Bill thron. There are numerous meds that can help. Natural products like glucosamine and others can help. There are also NSAIDs like metacam, previcox, rimadyl and others

Hey Doc....Question is I have a 11 month old golden ret. seems she loves to eat grass...I thought she would grow out of it but has not. I've heard it could be some sort of deficiency. Any thoughts??
Thanks,
Mike

Nature taught dogs to eat grass to purge their system of intestinal parasites. Eating grass is not a sign of any deficiency. Some dogs seem to just enjoy eating grass. Some eat grass when they have a digestive upset. In most cases eating grass provides no benefit to the dog. It is definitely not a deficiency

Default gum question on lab

We noticed that where the bottom large teeth meet the upper gum, the area is black in color. He is fine, eats, does not bother him. I never noticed it before, it is just where the teeth touch and fit in the upper gum. Is this normal or a problem? what to do? thanks, Dr. Harv

Joe R.
Tango,

Joe. As longas there is no increase in thickness or any other unusual appearance, it is most likely pigmentation

Clamman. There isnt anything you can put on them. Vets can remove them with a local anesthetic

Default Lyme disease

Spring is here and Lyme disease will once again rear its ugly head. The ticks are out and this area of the country is quite bad for dogs (and humans) getting the Borrelia bacteria that causes Lyme disease.

At our clinic we test for Lyme annually to try to catch it in its earliest stages. Untreated Lyme can cause renal failure, heart block, and other fatal disease.

There is no 100% way to prevent Lyme disease but the best you can do is three fold. Get your dog vaccinated against Lyme disease. Those who oppose Lyme disease should read the literature from the veterinary schools. There are few if any side effects from the vaccine and the risk of getting Lyme disease is much worse.

Two, use good tick products on your dog on a monthly basis.

Three, avoid areas of heavy tick infestation, or if not possible, there are tick repellant sprays for you and your dog. Check yourself thoroughly when you come from the field. The ticks are so tiny, you are not likely to be able to remove them from your dog. It is believed that it takes 24-36 hours for the tick to transmit Lyme disease once it attaches. The better tick products will kill the ticks before they can transmit the disease.
