My podenca ate a tub of dry birdseed 10 days ago. She ate as

Hello, my podenca ate a tub of dry birdseed 10 days ago. She ate as much as she possibly could get inside her. She pood several times after 24 hours and it was full of undigested seeds. She was fine for a couple days but then became lethargic and wouldn't eat. We starved her for 24 hours and the diarrhoea stopped and she did good poos. She has drunk throughout but now 10 days later she has some colitis I think and is producing watery jelly-like poos and is not herself. She is obviously uncomfortable and trying to stretch her back end. Do you think this is connected to the birdseed eating or something different? Any other thoughts? thank youJA: I'll do all I can to help. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?Customer: Thank you.

My 5yr old malamute has been excessively licking herself the

My 5yr old malamute has been excessively licking herself the last couple days (back end and underneath area the most) and today her poop was literally just a big green hair ball. Green I'm sure because her tummy was upset from all the hair, so she ate grass. But other than that it was all hair and water. What is causing her to do this? I'm worried. I have kept her nicely groomed. There's nothing in the yard she has gotten in to. No new foods either. Could this be serious? Should I watch her for a few days? What can it be? Very worried!!!

One of my dogs ate less then half of a milk chocolate

One of my dogs ate less then half of a milk chocolate hersheys kiss. I want to say a little over a quarter. The outside foil looks intact. Although a small portion of it may have been ingested. What should I look out for symptoms wise? He is 12 pounds and the other dog is 14.5 pounds. I'm quite positive that it was my 12 lb pup that is the culprit. Will he be okay?

Our adult pit got in a tangle with a mutt 2 days ago. Today

Our adult pit bull got in a tangle with a mutt 2 days ago. Today he is very lethargic, has an oozy eye and area on his snout (where it appears he was bitten). I tried to take him to the vet, but they were too busy. I'm very low income, can't afford emergency vet hosp.Any advice?
