Our 4 year old male poodle woke up this morning and was

our 4 year old male poodle woke up this morning and was stumbling around and rolling his eyes, so we immediately proceeded to take him to the vet. He was totally fine last night. Vet asked if he had eaten any toxic meat of any sort, which we didn't rule out, as it seemed very unlikely, but was still a possibilityJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what the poodle ate?Customer: We did not, we don't think it was toxic meat, but we didn't rule it out completely.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the poodle?Customer: My mom brought it to the vet, she witnessed all of it and told the vet exactly what she saw. I didn't see it myself, but that was what she told me.

We just adopted a dog from a rescue. He developed diarrhea, which is now being treated with bland food, probiotics, and antibiotics. We noticed he was sneezing and hacking. We took him to the vet and he did say it could be anything from coldkennel cough to allergies. He gave us amoxicillin for the respiratory issue. He is doing better and better.Now our other dog started sneezing persistently. Does he needed to be started on antibiotics for a dog cold too? Should we just watch it? Robutussim DM?I have been to the vet three times in the past week and a half and I feel like they are sick of me already...

I have a 14 year 3 month old German Shepherd that has had

I have a 14 year 3 month old German Shepherd that has had tick born disease in the past - about 3 years ago. She was treated with Doxy for 3 months. I found an engorged tick on her yesterday, and talked with my vet that said if she developed a fever they would put her on tetracyline. The only tick born disease we have here is Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever - no Lymes, etc. Tonight, she is running a fever of 103.8. She has been difficult today, not eating much breakfast, and she didn't want to get up to go out this morning, but she has been getting up with encouragement to go out all day. Tonight, she also began diarrhea. I gave her EndooSorb for the diarrhea. I know normal canine temps are 100 - 102. Is 103.8 an emergency or can I wait to call the vet in the morning for the tetracyline? I have amoxicillin here, or flagyl. She just saw our regular vet about 3 weeks ago for blood work and xrays. All looked good with a slight enlargement of the liver. I have had 6 GSDs at one time for over 20 years, some with very serious health issues, so I am not unfamiliar with many medical procedures. Her gums are very pink and she is drinking very well.

My 7 month old bulldog has a huge lump on side of face as

My 7 month old bulldog has a huge lump on side of face as big as a baseball now. It started last night. It is hard as a rock.She had a similar situation 2 weeks ago but not this big and a steroid shot relieved the swelling in 12 hoursAnd before that about three weeks same thingI'm beginning to think there is an infection that has not been addressed and it is reoccurring because only dex shots have been given for treatment thus farIs this life threatening? I'm afraid with how much swelling and how hard it is that it may bust her eardrum or eye socket out or even close her airway
