I had read the health benefits of feeding my puppy some raw

I had read the health benefits of feeding my puppy some raw fruits or vegetables aside from just puppy chow and kibble, I of course looked into which fruits were best and which to avoid, Grapes being the number one avoidance across the board, but cherries was a mixed in results. In the past 2 days I have given as a small meal enhancer our 7 month Chihuahua/York Terrier 4 cherries sliced very very thinly not even getting down too much to the pit, and discarding the stem and pit. She also tried an organically grown, bell pepper from my dad's garden where I cut it into strips and then each strip into about 5 to 7 squares (she had that twice). I have now read more up on cherries and the toxicity of cyanide that are in cherries and am so so worried now that I may have already inadvertently dangered our puppy even while all signs show she is doing fine on the outside, I am worried. Please help.

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 dog seems to be getting sicker. Here goes.... About three

My dog seems to be getting sicker. Here goes.... About three weeks ago my dog got a cluster of what I thought were bites on his right hind end. My husband and I decided it was time for a good bath and new flea collar. Ironically, the spots (or bites or hives) began to increase about a week later. In the middle of all of this I accidentally brought home the wrong dog food one night. So we married the old with the new until it would be gone and I could purchase what he is used to getting. Now the spots are all over!!! Starting this past Friday night Aug 19th,he began puking up mucus and now mucus with blood. He is moving slow but still wants h20 NOT food. I tried to feed him a small amt. of boiled ground beef and he wouldn't take it. Yesterday, thinking it could be an allergic reaction I gave him a tiny dusting of a crushed up 10 MG loratadine on some peanutbutter and cracker, probably the equivalent of a 1/4 of the pill. Could this have worsened his problem???? Please help me ,!!!
