My dog passed away at 12 years old and 4 months and 12 days
My dog passed away at 12 years old and 4 months and 12 days this past Saturday. A lab/chow mix at 60 lbs. two months previously the vet said his kidney levels weren't right but after 30 days on azodyl 2 in am and 1 in afternoon his levels went normal. He ate, walked, slept, everything was fine even Friday night! Sat morning he didn't want the morning pills wrapped up in turkey like he usually loved. He threw up and I cleaned it up, rested with him for a while and then we went outside. He hunched to poop but he couldn't, did that twice and then he looked at me like he had no idea where he was, what he was doing. He collapsed at the front door and his breathing became shallow, his gums and tongue pale. I touched him, dug my nail into his paw and he never flinched. What happened to my dog? :(

I have a Bichon Frise and I've had her for about 7 months
I have a Bichon Frise and I've had her for about 7 months now. She was a story when I got her. She HAD heart worms fleas. The whole nine yards. The thing that stuck with her is "allergies" I've researched her breed and on treatments and nothing has seemed to help. Lady consistently bite herself all day long. The only time she stops is if she's eating or sleeping. Other than that she's biting as her paws. I give her allergy medication once a day, she's had the allergy shot that suppose to last 2 months (didn't work). I even put socks on all four of her paws to keep her from bitting. She's bites at them until they are bleeding and swollen and sometimes doesn't even stop there. I've even tried home remedies. I don't know what else to do. Please help

My 4 year old female has been in heat since Friday the 16th,
Hello, my 4 year old female has been in heat since Friday the 16th, so about a week and a half. The past couple of days I've noticed that the bloody discharge is very,very smelly -- it has a strong musky/foul odor. The blood is very dark in color and brownish-red. Does a foul odor indicate a uterine infection, or can this be normal? She otherwise seems fine -- no diarrhea or vomiting and she is eating well.
My 5 month basset was spayed Friday afternoon (3 days ago).
My 5 month basset was spayed Friday afternoon (3 days ago). The incision site seems more swollen today. Previously, the incision was flat, and now it is much more rounded. I've attached a picture, if that helps. The incision itself doesn't look much different. I've also attached a photo of that as well. She is on "ace" twice a day, so she has definitely not been too active. She pulls her stomach back when you touch it, so it must be uncomfortable still, but she's not crying anymore, like she was on day one. Is this something to worry about, or just part of the healing process?
