Can someone please help me, I have two dogs (yes 2) with

Can someone please help me, I have two dogs (yes 2) with diarrhea. My German Shepard (12.5 yrs old)has had it since Monday evening and is being treated by his vet. They have given me 500 mg Metronidazole Tabs. 1 tablet twice daily for 7 days, we are on day 4 and still has the diarrhea. Now my Golden Retriever (6 yrs old) started with it this morning at 12:30am. Her has some substance but the Shepard it total liquid. I have been feeding him boiled ground turkey breast since he started. The Golden has been on her regular food but now I don't know what to do. Is it possible it't the turkey causing this? The Golden has only cleaned up tiny scraps that the Shepard dropped. I wouldn't think that would be enough to cause this. Can one dog get it from another, my Golden licks the Shepard food after he is done. I don't know what do, I have been cleaning up after them throughout the day and now it's time to feed them. I am afraid to feed!!!

My dog, a 7yr Lab with about 100 lb that takes Levocrine1.0

My dog, a 7yr Lab with about 100 lb that takes Levocrine1.0 mg did not want to eat yesterday eveniing. he was a little strange, but nothing that could be a warning. I however saw him laying different than normally. Most of the time, normally he lays down with two legs stretched or completely vertical, with the front legs at either side. I didn't see him laying down on his side at all, instead, it looked like a combination of the two styles. This morning, he didn't wake me up as he does every day. I woke up and told him to come for his morning food. He tried to stood up, but it appeared as if he couldn't stand on his legs, in fact, he walked some yards, but laid down again, I could give him with big efforts, 2 dog aspirinsto mitigate any pain he could be having. He was not complaying of any pain. I took him to emergency services. The veterinary inspected him, he let him do and didn't find anything in his mouth, or his temperature. They told me that they needed to make some tests to be able to diagnose the dog. The dog would have to remain 2 days in the hospital, and the cost of the diagnostic would be about $2.000. Well I couldnt pay that much for the diagnostic, so I ended up taking back the dog to my house. It appears that his problem whatever it is is worsening by the minute. When I went to the hospital, he entered the SUV by himself although with some help. When we came back he couldn't do that, I had to enter him in the car. Getting him out of the car was a big problem, he was having pain when I was trying to hold him inmy arms, he even bit me out of pain. It looks that he can't control his entire left side (legs), it is like he has them rigid and can't stand up. his left paw is bent, rigid, and it causes pain to him when I try to straigthten it.I don't know for sure what could have caused this to him. Last week I took him to the Niagara River to swim there. Could he have got a bacteria? Yesterday, when working in the garage, I lost him of sight for a few minutes, I saw him in the porch after such time. There is the possibility that he could have ran out and come back after being hit by a car, but I have not any sign that that could have happen. Other than that, I don't know of anything that could be causing his condition right now. I have him at home resting, and will try to feed him and give him water the best of my ability. Would you have any indication for me?.

I have a two-part question about my 4 and a half year old

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have a two-part question about my 4 and a half year old Pomchi, Penny. 8 days ago she vomited while sleeping in our bed while laying on her side from being dizzy because she has a vestibular disorder. She does not chew her food too well, so the wet food she eats is chunky andthe vomit contained a lot of chunks in it. I am pretty certain Beyond Reasonable Doubt that some of this material is still remaining up in her nasal passages. Not enough to completely block her breathing but she does continuously try to clear her nose. We have taken her to our vet which extacted a bugger , and give her a shot of convinia 5 days ago after a mucousy discharge started to come out. Then 2 days ago , we stepped it up a notch and took her to a local 24hr specialty vet which put her on azithromax. That was 48 hours ago and she is still showing discharge. What would you suggest doing?
