RE: [pug-4] Looking for a vet in town

my best recommendation of a vet is RIVERSIDE VET CLINIC which now is on EAST OLTORF.  (they moved but have the same name so people don't get confused about who they are)...  very highly recommended!!  i have had major stuff done with my dogs and it was EXTREMELY reasonable... i don't think you can get dentals done cheaper anywhere else.. and they are excellent!  i've had tons of checkups on my dogs following their procedures and they were free!  my sister uses them too... more thumbs up!   i live up north but it is well worth the drive.  the vet techs are extremely knowledgeable too and very nice!

Hi Jaime,

 

I googled ���holistic treatment for skin irritation on dogs��� and got the following remedies ��� you might try one. 

Canine skin home remedies:  http://www.lowchensaustralia.com/health/skinremedies.htm

 

Also, when my pug was itchy a while back, I found Neem shampoo to be good for sensitive scalps (you can buy it at whole foods market).

 

I have three pugs and finances are an issue, so I have them on the banfield plan (which I use at the Pet Smart at Braker and I83.)  The staff is friendly and the doctors seem to know a lot about pugs ��� at least they have been great with my pugs (I know some people are not in favor of Banfield ��� but my experience has been as positive as any other vet). 

 

However, I don���t leave them there for their check-ups, I always stay with them because they are such big babies and I want to make sure the staff is gentle with them.  Ex:  One of my pugs literally freaks out when having his head and paws messed with, so I keep a biscuit under his nose (actually I do it with all of them) while the doctor is sticking something up his butt, etc.  ��� this seems to keep him pretty distracted as he chews on it trying to get it out of my hands.  I also am constantly touching his head and paws to help him overcome his phobia (he was a rescue ��� so who knows���) and that helps too.

 

Anyway���

 

I always google my problems and see what kind of holistic remedies I can use along with what the vet says.  Ex:  I keep vinegar tablets on hand because I understand vinegar can break up kidney stones.  One of my pugs had issues with kidney stones and is on a special diet to help keep it under control.  However, he hasn���t had problems in a long while and I am not a scientist, but I think it is due to supplementing vinegar at the time he had blood in his urine.  Sometimes I give my pugs vinegar tablets in a pill pocket as a treat just for a preventative. 

 

Actually, the vinegar might help with your pugs the skin issues.  Apple cidar vinegar for dogs:  http://www.earthclinic.com/Pets/acvfordogs.html

 

I know doggy health issues can be disconcerting, so good luck! 

 

Jayne

Good evening all, my name is Jaime Vasquez.  I have to male pugs, Burnie the father and Toby his son.  I was recently declined a rabies vaccination for Toby at Animal trustees of Austin due to a skin irritation basically from his neck to his tail and was referred to attend a full service vet.  Is there one you can recommend?  I live in N. Austin at Braker and Lamar.  Also is there anything medicinally that you can recommend to ease the irritation for now.  I have tried everything and I'm now to the point where he needs a vet's attention.  Thank you for your time.  JV
