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.

Dr B I got your name from a friend and I really am frustrated with my Springer spaniels stinky ears! I have spent a fortune on ear cleaners and washes. Pills sprays home made concoctions and always within a couple days they are red and sore and stinky again. It is a pungent horrible smell and a brown sticky discharge coming from his ear that I have a really hard time wiping away. He is 11

I need another opinion I want a second opinion. I have a 11

I need another opinionI want a second opinion.I have a 11 yrs old golden retriever. He has started having nosebleeds out of his left nostril and he has laboured breathing that starts and stops in intervals. His right eye has swelled up and watery and now his left eye is bloodshot as well. His flatulance is really intense smelling. He is still eating and drinking water and goes for walks and is happy. But he seems a littl depressed and moans and sighs. What could he have. I'm on a tight budget so extensive testing is not an option what should I doJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: He has a injury on his right knee and is limpingJA: What is the dog's name?Customer: BuddyJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Buddy?Customer: His eyes look cloudy with a bluish haze. I had bloodwork done and the vet recommend a coagulation panel and further work up- She is suspicious of a tumour in the abdomen causing vasculitis and thinks he needs further work ASAP to check that he is not becoming anemic or his coagulation parameters. I've already spent $280 on this one test and we still don't have any real answer. She thinks it may also be his liverJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

I have a 7 month old min pin, female about 5 lbs. she ate a piece of scotch brand 3M transparent tape about an inch by 1/4. IM trying to see if the glue is toxic but scotch brand products are closed today and don't seem to have an emergency number. As a Paramedic I have had several kids eat all sorts of tape, usually with zero results, but puppies are a bit different. Sam Politano(###) ###-####JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what the puppy ate?Customer: ok so this is automated? That answered way to fast to be real time. She ate tape.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the puppy?Customer: no. otherwise perfect health.
