My 15 year old yorkie has been walking in left circles for 2

My 15 year old yorkie has been walking in left circles for 2 days. Took him to the vet and they think it was a stroke. Can't know for sure without MRI which I can't afford and not sure if it's necessary at his age. He's been blind for a few years as well and wears a diaper. The first day he started circling he was also falling over and tucking his right foot under. The vet prescribed him an antibiotic, steroid and blood thinner. I can get him to eat and drink, but not without holding him and/or following him in circles with a bowl. I have to put him in bed to get him to sleep and when he's not sleeping he's circling non stop. I feel so helpless. He looks like he's miserable and so confused. My family thinks it might be time to put him down and I do too, but at the same time I get paranoid about doing the wrong thing or being a "bad person" for putting him down.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?Customer: ValjeanJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Valjean?Customer: No, that's about it. When he's not asleep he's circling constantly.

She has degenerative myelopathy, very advanced. Completely

She has degenerative myelopathy, very advanced. Completely incontinent and no muscle control in the back end. She seems to have back to back bladder infections, but she won't take her antibiotics anymore. Just licks off the peanut butter. Her appetite fluctuates. She has blood in her urine. It's hard to tell if she's in pain, but for the most part, I don't think so. We have to lift her with a harness and move her everywhere she goes. Since she's completely incontinent, she wears a diaper at night and lays on waterproof pads the rest of the time if she is inside. She is an English Mastiff. She was 155 lbs, but I'm sure she's lost weight since her illness. I know she has lost a lot of muscle tone on the back end. We can't really weigh her at the vet. We just don't know when to make the final decision to have her put down. Is there a particular symptom we should look for? We asked the vet if the increased blood in her urine was a symptom of a bladder tumor, but they were non-committal. Just said it's another sign that we're getting close to the time to let her go.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the mastiff?Customer: She's about 8 years old. This process started about a year ago when we had to lift her to stand up, but could walk after being lifted. Her back end has been completely gone for about 6 months.

I have a 7 1/2 week old puppy and she is having anal

Hi I have a 7 1/2 week old puppy and she is having anal problems. At first it looked like her fur around her bum was too long and the poop would stick to it. But as I washed the area gently her anal hole it very red and it looks like it's really open. What should be done?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: Dakota for nowJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Dakota?Customer: I'm not sure. But I have been reading that it could be the food I'm giving her. Maybe not enough fiber?!?
