My 6 year old golden doodle (53 lbs) starting not feeling

Hi there. My 6 year old golden doodle (53 lbs) starting not feeling well last Friday. Lethargic, not eating or drinking. Took him to vet sat morning. He had a 104 fever and got subs 300cc fluid, antibiotic and vit b12 shot. Had blood drawn and UA done. All ok except for elevated WBC. No frank infection can be seen, i.e.: no painful joints, open sores, abcess etc. Took him back Sunday after results of workup for another antibiotic shot and got Rex for amoxicillin....he has had 3 doses orally thus far. Still no better this am. Other than respirations seem fast, no other frank distress. No runny nose or stool. He has still not been drinking but will take an occasional treat by hand. Getting worried..... not sure if another trip to vet is in store or if antibiotics need a bit more time to work...... getting worried.....

Recently my dog starts losing fur along nose bridge. When I

Recently my dog starts losing fur along nose bridge. When I wipe my finger down her nose lots of fur will came out (see pic below). Her nose bridge also has 3 white patch of visible hair loss. I think it only just started as I looked back at photos I took about 3 weeks ago and her nose was fine then. 12 days ago she was attacked by a Mastiff which require antibiotic (Cephalexin) for a week, then yesterday she developed abscess under one of her wounds on her butt which vet prescribed Amoxyclav. The wounds are on her neck and butt, but she did manage to bruise her right eye during the attack, although no wounds on her face. She's not losing fur in any other area.http://a65.tinypic.com/k3nfc3.jpghttp://a67.tinypic.com/nna3jb.jpg

My 12 y/o Yorkie, who has had occasional diarrhea his life,

My 12 y/o Yorkie, who has had occasional diarrhea his life, two weeks ago lost his brother and has had loose stools ever since. His teeth are very poor and I actually feed him Gerber 2 chicken baby food. He used to like the Instinct Limited Ingredient Turkey, but not recently. Not sure how much is stress (By the way he is alpha) vs IBD. In the past metronidazole has helped, but not this past week.
