Our 11lb dog snatched up our 45 lbs Trefexis pill this

Our 11lb dog snatched up our 45 lbs Trefexis pill this morning. We did research possible side effects so expected her to vomit. However, we hoped that would have been soon after she ate it. Well here is 12 hrs later and she's vomited all of her dinner and just recently what looks and smells like to me, a huge portion of thr tablet. Just concerned with the lapse of time or is this somewhat to be expected?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: No. We really expected her to be lethargic but not at all. She's been herself all day....just vomited now

I found a lump on my 8 year old golden retriever located on his rear hind leg in almost the groin area. It does not appear to be painful for him. On the opposite he has some bites from fire ants to which I applied some Calydryl lotion for the itching. Should I be concerned?

I just noticed my dog has a spongy substance on her toenail.

I just noticed my dog has a spongy substance on her toenail. I thought it was dirt last night but today realize it isn't. Any idea what it could be? It is on top of her toenail and goes all the way back to her foot (where the toenail begins).

We have had Australian shepperds. our daughter just adopted

we have had Australian shepperds for years. our daughter just adopted a 4 year old male that is 75 lbs. he came to visit my 1.5 year old aussie and was running and yelped. He now is limping, will bear weight walking slow, but if he trots he will pull his leg up some. I felt the joints and toes and moved the ' knee' and 'hip' -- he does not wince on bending our touching the joints or toes. I felt his hamstring and it did feel ' tight'. I told our daughter to keep him quiet and only walk him to go to the bathroom. We are leaving the country for a week on the 30th. Have a family member dog sitting him and then in the pet hotel as well. Not sure if we should get him looked at now, or just see how it plays out after he rests.
