Our border collie was not feeling good yesterday. She is a working cattle dog and is kept in a kennel. I brought her in last night because it's hot out. She won't eat anything and is drinking some water. This morning when I looked at her, I found a wet spot in her front right leg. It looks like she had an abcess that ruptured. It's about 1/2 inch around. I had some biomox on hand and she has had 2 dosages so far.Can you tell me if I should cover the wound or not? Also can I give her some aspirin for the pain. She doesn't want to stand up.

My 5 yo springer spaniel just urinated and there was blood

My 5 yo springer spaniel just urinated and there was blood in it. I noticed the last few days that she seemed to be going, or trying to go, pretty frequently. She eating and drinking fine and is active. I'm guessing she has a UTI. I happened to have some metronizole from a previous GI bug my dogs had. Since it's the weekend do you think there's any chance this would help or should I just wait?JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the springer spaniel's name and age?Customer: Her name is ***** ***** she's 5.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Kate?Customer: No, otherwise healthy.JA: OK.

My dog is overall healthy, solid poop, peeing regularly,

My dog is overall healthy, solid poop, peeing regularly, eating and drinking. Playing. She has these bouts of hard swallowing, in doing research and watching YouTube videos it is either acid reflux, seizures, or what I think is more likely, post nasal drip. She almost panics when she starts the hard swallowing and will go outside eat grass/weeds until she throws up and then is fine, I have found I can control it pretty well and keep it at a minimum with benedryl (as prescribed by my vet) and sometimes a pepto bismol tablet. (She weighed 74 lbs at the vet last week.) I am wondering if this can be caused by seasonal allergies or is it more likely to be caused by food allergies/intolerance? I thought it was her food and switched brands quickly, but stayed with sweet potato and turkey, grain free. She was eating natures domain, and I switched her to Merrick, same flavors. I am going to get her a different flavor today, Merrick limited ingredient, grain free sweet potato and duck, but I really am at a loss for what is happening with her, this is all new. She is 5 years old, almost 6 and had never had allergies before. I'm not sure what steps I should take next. She is very skiddish and does not do well at the vets, and when we went last week the vet said she sounded congested and prescribed amoxicillin 500mg every 12 hours, which made things worse. After 4 pills, 2 of which she threw up I stopped giving them to her. I am at my wits end and really don't know what to do to help her. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

My dog is shepherd cross 7 yrs unspayed female just finished

My dog is shepherd cross 7 yrs unspayed female just finished her heat about 1 month ago. Not pregnant. Showing signs of pseudopregnancy (nesting past two days) she is about 105lbs. Noticed today that one of her breasts is "firm"and enlarged about tennis ball size. Skin on this area appears normal pink color. When gently squeezing with firm pressure she shows no discomfort. No discharge noticed so far. This past week she has eaten grass and vomitted a palm size amount of creamy yellow/white vomit after eating grass. She has been eating very well but from afternoon till now is off her food. Will the swelling decrease or should this be a medical concern?

I have a Sharpie Beagle mix who is 7 years old that had to

Good Morning,I have a Sharpie Beagle mix who is 7 years old that had to be in the Vet hospital for 5 days with a high fever of 105.4 with diarrhea and then later vomiting. He was on an IV fluid for those days as well and is home now. After 5 days, they were only able to tell me that he has some sort of virus. He did get Lyme's disease two years ago. I was given Amoxicillin, Foriflora, and two other pills ( the bottle doesn't say anything except directions) to give him every 12 hours. My question: is it normal for him to be vomiting still after a small amount of food after being on an IV for 5 days?

My 11 year old Bichon is very tired, s bStools areloose, s

My 11 year old Bichon is very tired, his bStools areloose, his urination is orangey yellow and he is very tired and unstable in his walking plus his gums are white. He struggles to poop and lays down in the grass afterward like he's exhausted. He is still eating and drinking regularly. I took him to the vet two weeks ago and he was diagnosed with anemia. She believes he may have a cancerous mass somewhere but X-rays were inconclusive. I don't want my dog to suffer needlessly. How can I tell if he's in pain?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: All he does is lay down. He will have a short burst of energy every now and then which gives me hope but then he becomes tired and rests again. He has been laying with his neck outstretched or hanging off the couch or bed.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.
