LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Dr. Bob Hale from Briarwood Animal Hospital is answering your pet questions.
These are the questions he covered:
-Is pet insurance beneficial? Do they have any pre-existing clauses?
-I have a yorkie that has started chewing his hair off his backside. He doesn't have fleas so what could be causing his discomfort and itching?
-Is there anything better than giving insulin shots?
-I just adopted a mini-weinie dog over the weekend. She was weening pups and is so uncomfortable that she sits and whines. Is there anything I can do to make her more comfortable?
-I have a long haired chihuahua and a miniature schnauzer. They've been taking Interceptor for heartworms. Because of the problem getting it, the vet has recommended Trifexis. Are there any side effects with this?
