Type your Dog Veterinary question hereMy 6 yr, old malw chihuhua has started crying when I pick him up. He has stopped eating, is very listless and balks at going outside to the bathroom. He is usually very peppy, had a good appetite and doesn't mind going outside to do his business. Noticed behavior changes last night and continued all day today. What can be the problem and what is best first aid?

We just found a baseball sized mass on our bulldog's jowl.

We just found a baseball sized mass on our bulldog's jowl. We will be getting him in to see our vet on Tuesday, but wondering if it oils have something to do with him getting into a scuffle with a pit bull last weekend. The pit grabbed our boy and clamped down on him pretty hard. Our dog got first aid on the scene, but now we notice his jowl issue. Wondering if it could just be swelling or something worse.

My dog is 16 months old, we just came back from holiday

Hi my dog is 16 months old, we just came back from holiday yesterday and our dog was dropped off by the dog walker who has been looking after her while we were away. About 2330 last night she had diarrhea and has had it twice through the night and this morning, she is still eating and has weeping eyes. She has vomited once. The dog walker stated that she had some raw chicken with her breakfast, which she isn't used to she has only been eating dry food since we have had her, which has only been about 6 months.She also has something wrong with her ear our dog walker thinks she might have a seed or something in it.
