No its not late. Dogs usually get it at 6 months old. You can call your vet and ask for prices. All vet prices are different

take to the vet to rule out possabilities of infections..

ear infections, impacted anal glands, there may even be a skin infection causing the odor.

My dog broke his toe nail, what should I do?

He broke it yesterday it bled alittle, now I can see the flesh in it. His whole toe is kind of pink and a little swollen, should I worry or just wait, any advice is much appreciated

Either take him to a vets, or just leave it, one of my dog’s (Greyhound called Jane) caught her nail on something and my dad told us to leave it, soon enough the nail just fell off (we assume) and she stops crying 🙂

Are all of the shots my vet recommended for my dog necessary?

I left the vet with a list of immunizations and tests that the vet said I should do for my dog. The bill was going to be over 300$ so I opted to only do a few. But should I be worried about all of the other scary diseases out there. I feel like he was trying to take advantage. Our dog is a healthy lab mix and she is 1 1/2 years old and she recieved all of her puppy shots. What additional shots should she get?

Call the vet back, make another appt, and take the dog back in… explain the dog can’t poop cause the leg is broken…. why did they not fix it.. was it because you didn’t want to pay for it? IF so , you can go to jail or be fined for not taking care of the dog.. if the vet didnt’ think the dog needed a cast or splint , take it back EVEN VETS make mistakes…. go back before this one destroys the dog life.

At what age do dogs loose their teeth?

I have a nine-month-old miniature weiner dog and he seems to have excess teeth that he should have lost already. At what age should all a puppies teeth have fallen out?

Answer by lolipoplili
Around 6 months of age they should have all their adult teeth. It’s not uncommon though for smaller breeds especially to retain some baby teeth. If he isn’t neutered yet, they can remove those baby teeth while he is anesthetized for the neuter. Otherwise they should be removed anyway before they cause the adult teeth to move into poor positions.

Sometimes (less commonly though) dogs can have extra adult teeth, which should also be removed if they are causing the bite to be abnormal.

Can dogs start vomiting if they have been exposed to a stressful situation?

I gave my mom’s yorkie a bath this morning and after setting him on the ground after drying him off a bit, he started to throw up. He vomited about 5 times and now he seems fine. If he starts to get sick again or if he starts to seem lethargic I will take him to the vet, but now about 2 hours later he seems completly fine.

Could that bout of vomiting just be caused from the bath, he rarely gets them and never from me?

Answer by michele
Yes, they can vomit when stressed. It also may have been caused by nausea, or perhaps he ingested some soap and wanted to get rid of it. If you are worried, call the vet. You say he’s acting fine now, so I don’t think there’s a problem.
