Hi Dr. Florez,

We’ve got a 7yr old lab/spaniel. Lately we've noticed blood in her urine (now that we have snow!) Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Vet Viewpoint: Hot Sidewalks and Allergies PDF Print E-mail

Dear Dr. Florez,

I live in AZ and I see that you do too. I often see people walking dogs across the hot concrete and asphalt in the summer and I don't think that's good for the pets. My question is: how hot is too hot? How do you tell when it's too hot to walk on the pavement? Are paws less sensitive? Also, my girlfriend is allergic to my dog. I've tried some different shampoos, but I was wondering if there was something that will help my dog shed less. I have a Labrador mix.

Thanks in advance,
Arlo

Hypothyroidism and Soloxine PDF Print E-mail

Dear Dr. Florez,

Our Sharpei was recently put on Soloxine for hypothyroidism, however, he constantly breaks out in oozing sores and lesions. Is this because he is allergic to the medication? He needs this medication for life but we cannot subject him to this. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Trish

Dog is Losing Fur PDF Print E-mail

Dear Dr. Florez,

I have a 4 year old Springer Spaniel. The fur on her back is not growing. It is very similar to a white strip on a skunk. The brown color is very light from the sun or aged. She has new fur growing on the sides that is dark brown. We shave her completely down in the spring & summer. It stopped growing after her last shave in early April. What do you think? She is very active.

Excessive Salivating PDF Print E-mail

black labDear Dr. Florez,

I have a 6-wk- old Chihuahua that I just brought home. My 2 year old dog was very anxious to meet the puppy. So much so that she began salivating.

Could you confirm for me that this only an unconditioned response due to excitatory stimulus. My wife thinks Maya wants to eat the puppy because she associates her salivation with dinner time. Could you shed some light on this subject.
