We have 2 dogs one of them is in the vet hospital the vet

We have 2 dogs one of them is in the vet hospital the vet has said it is a stomach virus. If one is sick with a stomach virus why isn't the other, the only thing different that has happened between the 2 dogs is one had an ear infection (yeast) and the treatments were prednisone and dermotic suspension is there are possibility that he may have had some reaction to these treatments as the other dog is showing no symptoms of the stomach virus as I was under the belief that stomach viruses are contagious.

My Maltese has grass allergies and not sure what other

My Maltese has grass allergies and not sure what other allergies. He will chew his paws like crazy if we walk him. We haven't walk him for a while because of that but we felt he's not happy. He has been hiding in corners etc. we decided to try using these boots https://pawzdogboots.com/boots/Which I found mixed reviews about them but I put them on and probably the first two days were ok. After a few days my dog still chews his paws.Is there any other boots that might work? Or what can we do to be able to walk him but not getting allergies or infections? Sometimes he gets eye and ear infections if the allergies were bad.

Questions you might consider asking
  • Hello My dog gets ear infections from food allergies. Currently he is recovering from an ear infection. There is no odor, looks fairly clean, has the sloshing sound in his ear when I massage his ear and he shakes his head. Do you have any ideas about this.
  • I have taken my 4 year old boxer retriever mix to the vet on 3 separate occasions in the past year and a half for ear infections caused by allergies. No one can fix the problem and I'm not sure what to do at this point?
  • My Shar pei has chronic ear infections and vet has given up on treatment other than cleaning them once a day. I have tried everything including homeopathic. They are very wet and smelly. What can I do?
