I am fostering a litter of 4 kittens. They are about 8 weeks

Hello - I am fostering a litter of 4 kittens. They are about 8 weeks old and only about weigh about a pound. They were having severe diarrhea and yesterday they were diagnosed with coccidia and put on albon. My question is, what can I do to help with their sore bottoms? One in particular seems to have quite a bit of pain. I've been putting on Vaseline and neosporin spray. She does lick it off. Is there something else I can be doing to ease their discomfort? Also - any idea how long it takes to start seeing some results from the albon? Thank you!

Thank you! My 6 yesr old poodle/maltese has been liking his

Thank you! My 6 yesr old poodle/maltese has been liking his side for a couple of weeks now. I noticed a few days ago that he has a big bald spot in that area. This skin looks perfectly normal but maybe a bit dry. I've been applying coconut oil on it twice a day. He's had bouts of diarrhea and vomiting in the past weeks and doesn't have much of an appetite. Do you have any thoughts abouts this and could all these symptoms be related to the same cause? Should I bring him in to the vet? I don't really have the money to take him in. Thanks in advanceJA: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the poodle eat anything unusual?Customer: Thank you no not that I am aware of. And he's always quite fussy with what he puts in his mouthJA: What is the poodle's name and age?Customer: Taco. He is rescue so I'm not quite dure of his age so about 6 years oldJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Taco?Customer: He is a nervous dog. I took him to the vet last summer for eating a bunch of chicken bones. Gosh he was a mess! He did get over thst quite quickly with the right meds. Nothing else I can think of
