To be honest, this does look somewhat worrying. The rest of the incision healed very well, but the dark dot near the bruising could be a spot that didn't heal properly. In my opinion, you don't need to rush to an emergency vet, unless one of the following occurs: Your dog is lethargic, sleeping all the time and avoiding physical activities. Your dog eats or ...

Your tank is not properly cycled yet. Take this a bit slower, do not add any animals to your tank until it is properly cycled. The gray you can see in your tank is bacteria starting to grow. It is normal to have this in the beginning before the tank is in biological balance. The gray stuff will go away after a few days and it is not only bacteria, but ...

Do not change antibiotics without discussing with your veterinarian. In cats you could risk overdosing, underdosing, or causing other adverse effects. Both cephalexin and amoxicillin are good empirical choices for a urinary tract infection (UTI) in cats. Cephalexin at 25 mg/kg, twice per day, is an appropriate dose. Treatment of urinary tract infections ...

You did too many things in too little time. Maybe you want to take a step back and do things gradually. In that way, you will be able to better understand the source of your problems. Move everything is a different vessel(s) (can even be larger glass jars). Properly clean and disinfect the aquarium (gravel, filter, other accessories also); be sure to remove ...

Unless a vet gives you a different advice, I would not give a pregnant or nursing animal antibiotics. Si-Fixim is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, which kills not only bad bacteria, but also the beneficial gut bacteria. Practo writes: Can this medicine be taken during pregnancy? This medicine is not recommended for use in pregnant women unless necessary. All ...

Your country actually helps a lot. USA is known to almost fully eradicate rabies in urban and suburban regions, while it still exists in wild. Apparently, there are 1-3 cases a month in the whole country per year. Another thing that makes you safe is that it wasn't a deep wound, it was a scratching, most of which is absorbed by your jeans. The normal ...

Very often cats get abcesses from wounds caused by bites and claws so you will have to keep an eye on any wounds your cat get. The cause for many abcesses is that the wounds are deep and you will not be able to see how deep they are. wounds caused by cat claws and teeth will often start to heal from the outside of the wound ,the skin heals first and this ...

Sorry but the picture quality is too bad to see what's going on, but the wound does not look reopened. If the black substance is a scab, it's ok for the 7th day. However, if the skin itself is turning blue or black, your vet needs to have a look again. The red edge of the incision looks slightly inflamed, which is no reason to panic. If the red spreads out, ...

Were you sure to wash everything thoroughly before adding them to the tank? Even new items/plants need to be cleaned off before adding. I believe you possibly have some variation of thread algae. Thread algae survives on decaying organic matter within your tank. Generally these are removed with a thorough tank clean but on most occasions they are harmless ...

Not sure if the breed of the cat makes a difference when it comes to water in ears, but I could be wrong. I’ve heard many times the same thing your sister told you. I think they must have a hard time getting water out of their inner ear canals which could lead to infections and illness. We just have always typically avoided getting water in our cats ears ...
