Today was another great experience at LBAH.  I started my day going over very important cases with Dr. P, cases that are very common on a daily basis for veterinarians.  The case we discussed was about Lil man.  Lil man is a 10.5 year old neutered male Shitzu that came in because he was not eating, and unexplained urinary accidents at home.  His examination and lab diagnostics pointed towards a infection in the urinary system.  With a great assessment by the doctors and proper medical treatment, Frankie has been doing much better at home since he was discharged.  Urinary diseases

Neuter – Feline

2020-02-10T16:53:03-08:00November 21st, 2019|Cats|

These preventable tumors are the most common tumor in female dogs as they age. They do occur in males, but this is a rare occurrence. Up to 50% of these tumors in dogs are malignant. The specific cause of this problem is unknown, although there is a very strong correlation to hormones, especially in the dog. <script async src=""></script> <!-- LBAH Web Site Adsense --> <ins class="adsbygoogle" style="display: block;" data-ad-client="ca-pub-8091430273330641" data-ad-slot="2771011414" data-ad-format="auto" data-full-width-responsive="true"></ins> <script> (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); </script> Some tumors become so large that they can become ulcerated and painful, leading to the potential of an infection that spreads to the
