I have a 1 month old labrador puppy that looks as if she is only about 2 weeks. Recently she's been getting sore like bumps on her belly, head and tail that have puss mixed with blood. She wobbles when she walks but other than that, she can be really lively. What's wrong with my puppy?

[email protected]:30a my dog got me out of bed w.slight staggering,loss of coordination,slipping on floor, agitation,uncomfortable and pacing, breathing a little hard & nudging his left side once or twice. I watched him for a few hours after he finally laid down, then took him up to bed.Appetite fine,but he came up to get me in bed e or 4x--always comes to get me when something's wrong. He refused to jump on bed,& stumbled a bit on the stairs. We had noticed that the vision in his good eye (9 y.o.fixed collie M) didn't seem as good--part.noticeable today,but he has been having slight difficulties climbing stairs & getting up on bed in dark over past sev.months. But other than this, he was happy and normal when we went to bed at 10p. Took him to vet this afternoon when the balance difficulty didn't go away,feet sliding along floor,both back & front legs kind of giving way time to time. When we got there of course he appeared pretty normal,so they suggested "weather changes", or losing eyesight in his good eye. Said he had no discomfort & all looked normal,nothing wrong! Now that he's home he's a little better,but still v.unsteady and not himself. I'm very upset; I understand he may be losing some of his eyesight but overnight??? Now that it's evening he seems a little agitated again,& I'm afraid to let him try the stairs again. THe only other time he acted this way was after too much apparent benedryl/meds on July 4th; e.r. vets thought he seemed normal other than a little agitated, but on my insistence liver levels were checked. They were very high,but went down w.meds after cpl week. Dog is hypothyroid,just had meds adjusted. Could what vets said have any credence? Xander is my life...

My dog's liver reading is very high. Is this treatable?

My 7 year old Shih Tzu Teah, had a seizure a week ago. She was checked out at the vets and was ok. I was advised to get a blood test. I have just had the results today and her liver reading was 141 and the vet said it should be 5. She is going to have a scan on Wednesday but I am so worried and Wednesday is a long time to wait. I have looked up what this may mean. A tumor or obstruction and some sort of trauma to the liver. If this is the case, are these operable? Could you give me some reassurance as I am thinking the worst.

I am involved with dog rescue in Baja, Mexico. I recently rescued a litter...they are -0 weeks old now. They have not been with their mother for over two weeks. The mother who was spayed a week ago, is now showing symptoms of TVt and is getting treatment. My question is about the puppies. They all are fine, but i want to know if she could have passed this on to them and also can they be tested to see if they ahve it.
