My old dog played for a short time with a dog on Saturday.

My old dog played for a short time with a young dog on Saturday. As a result, he is quite stiff behind, and is sometimes walking on the tops of his back feet, tripping and falling down. He does not appear to be in any pain or discomfort- no yipping, crying, whining etc- But seems to sometimes not have the most control over his hind end after the playing session.He's a bit confused/frustrated when he falls over. I have been able to easily support his hind end to get him back up on all 4 feet again. I have been keeping him quiet since the incident occurred on Saturday. He has had some arthritis issues, but all in all had been comfy. I am wondering if prednisone would be helpful to reduce any inflammation caused by his playing? He is an almost 11 year old 75 lb lab mix. Thank you!

Lucy is a 9 yo mixed pit bull who has recently started pooping in inappropriate places. She now poops all over the house including on our bed where she sleeps. Sometimes it seems as if she is unaware of her behavior. Could there be a medical problem associated with this behavior?

I am aware that there are numerous health issued related to

Hello,I am aware that there are numerous health issued related to my 16 yr old Shih-Tzu, Peanut (male). He wasn't mine all his life but I've grown a connection to him that he doesn't have with anyone else. He is quite aggressive (even with me sometimes, difficult to manage his health) I am not sure of his exact conditions, I know he possibly may have arthritis and glaucoma in both eyes one more severe than the other. However, my specific issue is a greenish pus that covers his eyeball and then turns into this hard foul smelling crust that he refuses to let me cut off or remove. I get him groomed by this one lady who can handle him, very often just to have her shave the gunk off. Vet visits are quite expensive and my parents refuse to help with the vet bills because to them his age isn't worth the expense and I cannot afford the bills on my own. I have considered putting him down but he still has so much spunk and love in him that I'd prefer to give him treatments first and see if they help, if not, unfortunately I may put him down if I have the guts. Any recommendation on any supplements/home remedies I can give him without going to a vet? If you need more details I'd be happy to share more and include pictures if possible. Thank you so much for any help.
