Our AmStaff x (rescue) is 20 months old and had surgery in

Our AmStaff x (rescue) is 20 months old and had surgery in November to remove a growth on his lip as he'd made it bleed when chewing on one of his toys. The vet initially believed it was nothing to worry about. Now on the same site a cluster of six wart looking growths have appeared and seem to multiply every few days. We're reluctant to take him back for surgery as it's not something we can afford right now and the recovery period was traumatic. Is there anything I can do either naturopathicly or homeopathicly?

My 38lb 9yr old female heathy Labradoodle has a cyst on her

My 38lb 9yr old female heathy Labradoodle has a cyst on her back that was aspirated a year or so ago by our vet and determined to be benign and just a cyst. Yesterday, she began fussing with it and we noticed it was oozing some fluid. So we were washing her to clean the area up and found she had opened a wound about the size of a dime, and we could see some had white masses inside that came out when we sprayed water on it. The largest was the size of an English pea. She didn't seem to be bothered by us fussing with it. Most of the white solid mass came out but we can see more in the wound which is about 1/4 inch deep. We put peroxide on it and it doesn't seem to be bleeding. We also put a cone on her that we had from another skin issue. We are planning to see the vet tomorrow, but should we apply anything like neosporin or an antiseptic until the visit?

Thank you for offering this service! Basically, my question

Greetings! ...and thank you for offering this service!Basically, my question is this...Can a tooth infection or periodontal disease or gingivitis are seizures in a dog?Backstory...I have a Dalmatian that turned 12 in October 2016. Every year I schedule her check up around her birthday, and during her last check up in October her blood work came back absolutely normal which my veterinarian remarked about considering her age. She also had to be sedated to have her x-rayed to monitor her arthritis in her lower back where her vertebrae meet the pelvis. While she was under sedation I had them clean her teeth because her breath was absolutely Rancid. Her breath odor immediately improved after that, but shortly after the first of the year the bad breath returned and she started having seizures. My veterinarian put her on phenobarbital and after a week to 10 days the seizures stopped. (at least none have been observed since then) Her breath is again rancid smelling and very acrid. She has also started do bleed from our gums and have excessive drooling. My veterinarian suggested to brush your teeth hand I have been brushing her teeth with baking soda dissolved in water and with a little hydrogen peroxide, but after a day the odor returns. I took her in again for another exam and my veterinarian saw some inflammation on her gums and on her upper palate back towards her throat. I am wondering if her seizures could be caused by an infection in her mouth... or if the issues with her mouth is a secondary issue completely unrelated. I plan on taking her to CSU veterinary school in Fort Collins Colorado as soon as I get my tax return to see what they can determine. My vet suggested I take her there to possibly get a CAT scan or an MRI of her brain because he suspected a tumor was causing the seizures. I'm sad to say the cost of that is cost-prohibitive but I want them to address the issue of her bleeding gums and bad breath and hopefully we can at least get that problem taken care of. I am probably grasping at straws but could there be any correlation or causation from her mouth problems and her seizures?Regards,Mike Stone

This last Tuesday, our dog received a distemper booster. He is 6 years old, so it's not a first time thing. He had had a very touchy stomach ever since we've had him & has been in grain free food since he was 1 year old. Our vet's office had an emergency & they were Kate getting to us - as a result, he was offeredd 2 treats while in the waiting room & 2 more while we were in the treatment room. I never gave it aNY thought, but I'm fairly sure the treats weren't grain free. He has had stomach distress since Wednesday, with a slightly bloody discharge in his stool off & on. Friday night, I was up at 5AM to take him out, where he had semi-diarrhea. Today, I have gone to a cooked chicken/rice feeding for blandness & am hoping to avoid a visit to the emergency vet until our vet opens tomorrow. Is there anything we can give him to help relieve any pain - he stretches up & down periodically & I'm pretty sure he's uncomfortable.JA: The Veterinarian's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: Only that he has expressed discomfort when he's had items (food/treats) that aren't gluten/grain free. Other than that, he is very healthy. How much is the fee?
