My 8yr old lab cross has had a large scab on her nose least

My 8yr old lab cross has had a large scab on her nose for at least a year. The vet we brought her to didn't know what it could be except for an allergy to her food. We changed her food a few months ago and it seems to be getting larger and she scrapes at the scab till it bleeds. Any idea of what this might be? We can send pics. ThanksJason

Every few days my 12 year old schnauzer looks disoriented,

Every few days my 12 year old schnauzer looks disoriented, and does not want to walk, or eat. One time even lied down and peed on the floor. (he never ever does it in the house. He barks and let us know).It generally lasts about a day, then he is OK and even playful. A vet tested him the first time and they could not figure it out. They said it may be seizures.Any idea?I just don't want him to suffer.Thanks

We just got a new puppy (8 weeks) who was prescribed

Hi - We just got a new puppy (8 weeks) who was prescribed Tresaderm for an ear infection. After his morning dose, I forgot to put it back in the fridge. It was on the counter (in a bathroom at about 74 degrees) for 12 hours before I realized my mistake and put it back in the fridge this evening.Question: puppy is due now for his next dose, and I just put it back in the fridge an hour ago. Should I not use the Tresaderm until it has cooled back down completely. Or, should I not use it at all and call the vet in the morning to get a new prescription?thanks!
