My dog was in a dog fight and had a puncture wound in her

My dog was in a dog fight and had a puncture wound in her back leg. After a day of limping and being in obvious pain, I gave my twenty lb Jack Russell a dropper of Tylenol. She was eating some and drinking, but wouldn't walk. I gave her another dose the next day. On Friday, Lexie was boarded at the vets for the weekend. I was told she spiked a 103 temp and vomited, eating almost nothing the entire weekend. She was given a pain med & an antibiotic over the weekend. She won't eat, drink, or use the bathroom. Help!

My german shepherd has a circle rash on his stomach. We aren't able to take him in for care until next weekend. I wanted to see if I could get some answers as to what's going on. And maybe make him more comfortable. He is also having some discharge from his private area.

My 2 year old Lab, typically very calm, didn't finish her

My 2 year old Lab, typically very calm, didn't finish her supper, then 30 minutes later threw up what she had eaten. Her belly is distended, tho not painful.The vet put her on cephalexin, 500 mg, 3xday yesterday for 7 days, along with Temeril P 2xday for 10 days to treat what seems to be an extension of a prior staph infection. The distension happened about 2 hours after giving her the cephalexin in a pill pocket.Her breathing seemed normal a few hours ago. Now it is slightly faster.Should I take her to an emergency vet?

My nine yr old golden has been suffering from what his vet

My nine yr old golden has been suffering from what his vet called a skin infection. It is characterized by patches of hair loss and bumps that feel like scabs. I've been somewhat successful in treating the areas with hydrogen peroxide. I have an extensive landscaping in my back yard. I recently had it "cleaned up" and landscaped. Almost immediately my dog had an attack of this infection in several areas over his body. I'm a microbiologist by training hence the use of H2O2. Is there something that I can use that would bring faster and perhaps longer lasting treatment?
