About 1.5 months ago, I noticed a big firm lump between my

About 1.5 months ago, I noticed a big firm lump between my dog's front toes, it's slightly red but not ulcerate or bleeding, took her to vet who prescribed a week of antibiotics as she suspect it might be foreign object that caused an infection, and said if it doesn't get better then she will need to cut it open. So after a week of antibiotic it is still the same, but then I started applying turmeric and coconut oil paste based on a suggestion from a holistic vet, it started to shrink in size, almost invisible to the naked eyes now but not completely gone as I can still feel a small sesame seed size lump, but it didn't get any bigger so I chose to wait and see. And about two days ago I notice two more lumps appearing on the same webbing area between the same toes, it's smaller than the one before but feels quite similar, semi-firm lump. Her nails and paw all looks fine, no limping, no swelling or loss of nails etc, and she doesn't seem to be too bothered by it, hardly see her lick. so I'm not sure if this could be a bacteria-based Interdigital furuncles or some sort of tumor, but can cancerous tumor appear as multiple lumps in same location?Please see link for pic as its too big to attach on here, the first picture is the old lump 1.5 months ago, second picture shows how it's almost gone now, together with the two new lumps next to her toe on the webbing.http://a68.tinypic.com/2unuaz9.jpghttp://a66.tinypic.com/2e21h4w.jpg

Our 2-year old wire hair fox terrior keeps biting the hair

Our 2-year old wire hair fox terrior keeps biting the hair off her rear areas and tail. We have beeb to our vet twice and the vet prescribed temiril at the first visit. It did not stop the biting. Then the vet prescribed apoquel and that has not stopped the biting. We have applied an over0the-counter hot spot spray with allercaine and this has not helped. We have bathed her twice in a prescription shampoo but the soothing has been short-lived. We changed her dog food to Proplan "grain-free" chicken and egg, and that has not changed her behavior.Is there some other thing(s) we can try. Our vet bill is in the hundreds.

She has been licking her left paw past several days. This

Hi, she has been licking her left paw for the past several days. This isn't normal for her so I checked her paw pads for splinters but didn't see anything. The next day I checked it again after seeing her lick it, and saw it was red between the pads. She isn't licking anything else and doesn't have any rashes. What could it be?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: LeeluJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Level?Customer: She has sensitive skin in general but hasn't had any outbreaks. She doesn't have food allergies or conditions.JA: 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.

We have been on a road trip with our dog ( a 4 year old,

We have been on a road trip with our dog ( a 4 year old, healthy, neutered, toy poodle) beginning Thursday of last week. He was doing great until today. After eating breakfast this morning (his normal food and treat) he vomited. Later in the morning we went for a short drive. He drank water at the stop and then we returned back to our hotel and just as we were parking he threw up in the car (mostly water with some of what was left). We then walked him and he had diarrhea. We returned to the room where he drank water. About 1/2 hour later, he needed to go out and then had diarrhea again. He drank water again and a few minutes later through it up. This has never happened before and he has not had anything to eat other than his regular diet. Should I be concerned? Also, how long should I wait before seeing a vet?

My dog is a mixed breed, Collie/Dachshund. He is really

My dog is a mixed breed, Collie/Dachshund. He is really healthy, great coat, well toned and very energetic. He is about 2 years old. He currently has an issue with the area surrounding his eyes and in particular the right eye. When I first got him this area was problematic and he would continually scratch that area. We then began treating it with a natural skin conditioner and although he would rub his eye against anything to get it off it eventually cleared up. Over the past week, it has come back, however, this time, it seems to be more severe. The area is not infected, but all the hair is being rubbed away and it now is wrinkly which I think is possibly attributed to the recent warm weather. Your guidance would be hugely appreciated. Kind Regards David
