My 11-moth old, recently neutered Chi- is air-humping and
My 11-moth old, recently neutered Chi-Weenie is air-humping and its becoming more frequent but only first thing in the morning. I suspect its a behavioral issue since he had a rough start in life before I got him 6 months ago. During and after he does this uncontrollable humping, he feels guilty and looks miserable for several minutes or even an hour or two. How concerned, medically, should I be? It's been 2 + months since he was neutered.

I have two dogs male and female Saint Bernards together. I
Hi Mam, I have two dogs male and female Saint Bernards together. I just found out my female Saint to be in heat.. just found drops on blood on her female part. My concern is this is my first female dog and how to care for a dog in heat and can this heat cycle influence my male dog's appetite as in that he smells the hormones. Can you please elaborate on caring for a female dog in heat. I have already separated her from the male dog to prevent false pregnancies...

Our 4-1/2 year old Airedale Terrier is constantly licking
Our 4-1/2 year old Airedale Terrier is constantly licking himself and gets an erection occasionally. The erections seem to really bother him. He almost acts scared like he doesn't know what is going on. He is neutered. Is this anything to be concerned with?
Dixie, my 2 year old golden retriever, all of a sudden
Dixie, my 2 year old golden retriever, all of a sudden presented with this droopy eye in her left eye - almost like a lazy eye. She can hardly keep her eyes open, acting as if she's sensitive to light. I've read a little about orbital cellulitis. She is a chronic stick chewer. Any idea what a cause and potential course of treatment could be?

I have 2 dogs that got into a fight both are dominant dogs
I have 2 dogs that got into a fight both are dominant dogs both ended up with puncture wounds that I have cleaned out but both with large lacerations on legs as defensive wounds. I have shaved the hair cleaned the wounds and already put staples to close the wounds and a small drain in one of the wounds for one dog as it was a larger laceration. Just making sure I don't risk infection so wanted to start antibiotic. I have tons onhand Cipro, keflex, & amoxicillin debating which is safest. Also ASA is not a good idea as blood thinner so was trying to figure out if for pain for the night if Oxycodone with no Tylenol in it or Valium would be ok. My vet is not reachable until Wednesday and I am a nurse but I work with humans not dogsJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the dog bleeding a lot?Customer: Not anymore. Bleeding has stopped at this pointJA: What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Zoe 8 1/2 Rooka 5 1/2JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Zoe?Customer: She is basically healthy her last work up was less than a year ago labs were perfect no diabetes or thyroid issues all labs WNL.
I have a question. I have 2 daschounds that are 8 moths old
I have a question. I have 2 daschounds that are 8 moths old each. In my bathroom I have a step up into my bath tub. I had a soap dish sitting on the side of the tub . There were 2 pieces (like a small cube of cheese size) I didn't use them, they were there bcuz of their fragrance. I noticed one day last week one was missing. Max got sick all of a sudden 1 afternoon and was vomiting hard and had diarrhea bad. You could hear his stomach just gurgling. At the end of the day he was fine. When it was dinner time, I only gave home a quarter size amount to make sure we didn't have more issues. He was fine. Now the other piece of soap is gone.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dachshund eat anything unusual?Customer: I don't think so, I was thinking it was a result from the soap. I think Olivia, his sister, ate the other one but no side effects on her. Sometimes when they go outside, they want to eat poop. Just occasionally- and I immediately tell them drop it.JA: What is the dachshund's name?Customer: The boy is Max, really mellow, cuddling little guy, and Olivia is the Brut! She's definitely the dominant oneJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Max?Customer: No, I don't think so. They are back to their playful, little selves!
