I am having problems with my 16 yr old min schnauzer and 5

I am having problems with my 16 yr old min schnauzer and 5 year old lab/cattle dog mix that i have had since he was born. The 16 year old barks all the time, especially when he gets excited and at the 5 year old dog. This causes a fight and the schnauzer ends up getting hurt. I know if the barking drives me nuts, it has to drive the 5 yr old nuts too. The 5 yr old gets along well with my 9 yr old yorkie and 7 yr old dogs but they don't bark at him. I don't know what to do and i wouldn't give the 5 yr old away as i don't want anything else to happen.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name?Customer: Max is the 16 yr old schnauzer and Maddox is the 5 yr old mix. I have 4 dogs altogether -- a failed foster momJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Max?Customer: He has a stroke last summer but we nursed him through it and now he is doing pretty good. I want his last years to be good ones.

Hi, one of the dogs in my rescue, a 3-4 year old beagle, was spayed on 2/22. She has been doing really well but her foster reports that she started to bleed vaginally this evening after going out on a leash to go potty. I am wondering if this is normal or a cause for concern?

My dog is wheezing and just not acting like himself. He has

Hi there, my dog is wheezing and just not acting like himself. He has also been sneezing, his nose is running, eyes tearing, and panting/fast breathing. He is not coughing so I'm not sure if that eliminates some things. He has somewhat lost his appetite, he's still eating but is not nearly as excited about it and is being picky about what he'll eat. I just adopted him 8 days ago so he came from a situation of being around a lot of other dogs. At first I thought it was allergies but I feel like symptoms have gotten worse so I'm not sure if it's simply just worsened allergies, a cold, or something more serious. Hearing your dog wheezing is kind of scary.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Coughing can be worrying. The Veterinarian will know what you should do. What is the dog's name?Customer: CopperJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Copper?Customer: Not that I know of

He has been vommitting within 12 hours of eating since Saturday, and recently has started having diarrhea as well. He can't keep anything down.JA: What sort of animal are we talking about?Customer: A dog. He is a 25 pound miniatufe Australian Shepherd.JA: OK. I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?Customer: We recently switched his food to see if it will aid in weight loss and because he developed struvite crystals. He was fine during the switch, but since he's been completely on the new food he's had an upset stomach. Outside of right after he's puked, he's been happy and wanting to play. We switched from Dr Fosters and Smith Healthy weight to Wellness Core Reduced Fat.JA: This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: He's a little over 2 years old and is considered overweight. There are no other concerns that I'm aware of though.
