My dog started to develop to yellowish drainage coming from

My dog started to develop green to yellowish drainage coming from his eyes as well as a foul infectious smell coming from his mouth..This was after he was potentially exposed to something at a doggy daycare that notified customers that there was bordatella going around..He had a bad cough for a day but thankfully that went away on its own however the eye drainage and the foul smell persisted..I took him to my vet and she prescribed clindamycin twice a day.My question is how soon should I expect to see relief of symptoms..It has been about 8 days and he still has a very small amount of drainage but not as bad..He eats drinks and plays as if nothing is wrong..

I took my 8 year old golden to the vet yesterday to have her

I took my 8 year old golden to the vet yesterday to have her look at a growth on the side of his head and two less worrisome growths. She said one was a wart, the other a skin tab and neither an issue. The growth on the side of his head she thought could be a wart as well, but wasn't sure and recommended removal and lab analysis. No problem, but the cost is very high...With his age she wants to do pre-surgical blood work (CBC/Chem 17 at $155). Remove all three growths for $250 plus anesthesia $260. And then the lab "Idexx Biopsy/Histopath 1 site" for $187.With the rest of the charges (IV & fluids $87, injections Clindamycin& Metacam $68, Simplicef& Tramadol $112) the estimate is up over $1100.AND, she recommends an Ultrasonic Scale/Polish 1 at $98, since he will be under anesthesia. "Total may vary between $1238.46 and 1418.46". Ouch.Does this seem reasonable? Can I/should I call other vets for comparisons? He is my best buddy but this will really be difficult to pay and I don't want to have him or me go through all this unnecessarily. The side growth does look like it could be a wart after looking at pictures on the Internet. Would it be acceptable to try some of the at home wart removal methods I see?Thank you for your advise and input!!

My dog has a very bad heart. My vet didn't think he'd live a month. It's been two years! His teeth are very bad but my vet says anesthesia is not an option. It's hard to be near him his breath is so bad. Is there anything I can do at home to help? I'm afraid of brushing to much or letting him chew because it might realse to mush bacteria into him.

I am a breeder of Airedales. The puppies are now 13 weeks

Good morning. I am a breeder of Airedales. The puppies are now 13 weeks old all puppies are healthy but last 3 of 2 I have sold. For the past three weeks they have had diarrhea. I have had stool samples checked...nothing growing. They have horrible diarrhea. Gaining weight, playing, eating. The new owners are angry. Have been treated with panacur, flagyl, probiotics.... Giardia, worms, coccidiosis,...nothing is growing, but this continues. My vet wants to finish this course of panacur and flagyl...then go on to clindamycin for 10 days. I do not have a ton of money..what do you think is going on
