  1. I would strongly advise not to amp that toe as it’s a weight bearing toe. I would consider the procedure mentioned above first.
  2. Just an FYI-bleeder dogs typically have normal clotting times ..they clot but the clots break down prematurely making them bleed. To also make things tough is they may have had multiple surgeries/ extractions in the past but, could still bleed after a future procedure. So, one can never trust clotting profiles-really need to run TEG which is rarely done as it’s such a specialized piece of equipment. when in doubt give the Amicar or TA.
  3. Are you confusing whipworms with hooks? Whipworms are notorious for surviving environmental changes-not so much with hooks. Heres a nice link regarding hooks.... https://www.marvistavet.com/hookworms.pml
  4. Freezing weather will kill anything in the soil. So, if you’re in an area that has harsh winters you have less to worry about.
  5. Do the ct -they are extremely diagnostic. They will be able too do an aspiration at he same time.
  6. Sadly, may have metastasis. I chest x-ray will confirm.
  7. Once a week? Yikes. Your dogs teeth should be treated as your own which involves daily brushing. After 24 hours plaque will form on the teeth and if not removed tartar will form. Start slowly-even just brushing a tooth or two until your dog accepts the brushing. I’ve gotten my dogs used to using a sonicare and even flossing. Good oral health is so important to overall health. Brush, brush, brush ;-)
  8. It’s a bruise from the blood draw-collection of blood under the skin. I think your vet was just trying to reassure you that it wasn’t caused by trauma-May look worse before resolving. ;-)
  9. Orange stool sounds EPI. https://www.whole-dog-journal.com/health/exocrine-pancreatic-insufficiency-in-dogs/
  10. Agreed with the above post-stool check and prophylactic de-wormer should be the first course of action. I love to give a good probiotic-nutramax makes a wonderful product called Proviable. I would also highly recommend trying Hills W/D food-it’s extremely high in fiber and low in fat. The fiber will slow the gi tract down and the low fat will allow the pancreas to settle. Fat is very hard to digest. I would then recommend seeing an internal medicine vet-your hound may have IBD.
  11. If you decide to homecook I suggest doing a consultation with a veterinary nutritionist-Dr Remillard is wonderful. Petdiets.com In the meantime you can try egg whites, pasta, green tripe.....oh and dark meat chicken is naturally lower in protein than white meat (due to it’s higher fat content). I also suggest checking the first morning urine for protein and checking the USG (A higher value at or above 1.030 would mean the kidneys are concentrating the urine well) ;-)
  12. I assume your vet is aware of different blood values seen with Greyhounds-specifically slightly elevated creatinine?
  13. Proviable ! https://www.proviable.com/
  14. I would consult with a veterinary nutritionist. Check out Dr Remillard’s site. https://www.petdiets.com/
