  1. We did that too from the internal medicine dr and apparently it didnt rid him completely so this is kind of a last resort at this point
  2. Yes, weve been keeping up with the deworming. He was taking a tablet every two weeks for 3 months and is now onto a once monthly tablet. I thought at first maybe it was that, but he took it at the beginning of the month so I dont think thats the cause of his current issues. Regarding seeking a new vet, weve been to multiple which is why the bills are so high. One for regular check ups, an internal medicine specialist, and a dentist for the tooth. Im not sure seeking a new vet would provide any additional information at this point. All of them have said his blood work is normal, the extraction site looks fine after the second surgery, etc. My biggest concern is that he isnt drinking water. At all. The food he has responded most positively to that gave him super normal stools is a powder that we mix water with. the vets kee telling me its fine since hes still urinating and has an appetite, but it makes me nervous that he hasnt had water in weeks.
  3. We adopted our dog in August. He has always been a big mushy boy who likes to sleep and cuddle. He has always had an appetite and goes on walks no problem. When we adopted him he had hook worms and a dead tooth (we found out later). Since we got him weve had trouble with his stool. Its always been diarrhea and sometimes blood mixed in. We had a few good weeks where everything looked normal. We figured it was the worms and the meds. We got the tooth removed and ended up needing to go back since the first surgery opened and became infected. The past week he has been acting strange; he is eating and going on walks but his stool has gone back to completely loose and always ends with blood, usually separate drops afterwards. He is hyper aware on his walks and doesnt seem interested in playing. We arent sure what to do anymore. Weve spent thousands on blood work, medicine, surgeries. Its upsetting to us and we dont know what else to do. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Anyone have a guess as to where to start? What to ask the vet? Were hopeless.
  4. Hi all. Im super new to this community and greyhounds so my apologies if any of this is stupid or simple to more experienced owners. We adopted our first retired greyhound just about a month ago. Hes a neutered (and house trained) 2.5 yo male. He had surgery for a broken leg that led to his early retirement. When we first brought him home, he was the gentelist, most docile dog Ive ever encountered. I know stress/anxiety would make him a little subdued,so I wasnt concerned that he had no interest in toys or activities. Every week, hes opened up more and more. Hes finally wagging his tail, playing, and exposing his belly, etc. but hes also acting out. Hes jumping on people, no matter how many times we correct him, hes chewing on wires, and his new favorite thing to do is wake us up in the middle of the night by whining and even BARKING (which he never does, even when people come into the house or other dogs are around, etc.) We thought that maybe since hes on some medication for hook worms that he had a belly ache and needed to go out, but when I took him out he didnt poop and seemed to have no interest in being out there at all. He didnt stop panting or pacing and whining until I laid on the floor with him where he fell asleep. Does he have anxiety? Is he bored? Is there a way to tell if the dog is in pain or stressed vs just wanting attention? If hes just bored or is looking to be pet, I want to nip this in the bud IMMEDIATELY...but if something is actually causing him to act this way, I dont want to ignore it. Any input is helpful!!!
