Dog has black scab on her paw that she keeps licking. What can I do?

My 8 year old Spanish Water dog Ruffle has what looks like a black scab on her paw. It was a sore red patch and we covered it with a bandage to stop her licking. She recently had a neurogenic dry eye but that has cleared up now.

I 15 year old Chihuahua just had spay surgery. She had been

Hi there! I 15 year old Chihuahua just had spay surgery. She had been ill for a while and we opted to get it done last Monday. Her uterus was infected and had a growth which did not seem to concern the Dr. much. Before the surgery, she had stopped eating much, and I fed her soup and pedialyte with a dropper for several days. Surgery went well and she woke up from the anesthesia quite fast. She is home now. Still not eating much even though I have tried to offer her many different choices... This morning, when taking her out, she began sort of hyperventilating..and then she collapsed on the floor.. This had happened twice before the surgery, including the night prior.. I want to think she is weak due to her lack of appetite but I am worried that this is something else.... She is resting and seems ok but every so often, she begins breathing rapidly.. Is there anything I can do?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: She is on antibiotics and pain medication.... blood work prior to surgery was unremarkable...pretty much within limits but this could have changed... there was pus in her uterus when they did the surgery...

I have a 6 mo Norwich Terrier; also a 4 yr Norwich, whom I

I have a 6 mo Norwich Terrier; also a 4 yr Norwich, whom I spayed between 6 & 7 mos. The breeder provided me with an article from a vet done in 2013. Actually more of a summary of other articles, with his clear bias leaning toward not spaying until after the first 2 heat cycles. I'm 69 years old & have had dogs all my life, & always spayed them before their first cycle. However, my current puppy seems small for her age & one of the big arguments in this article is that spaying too early can delay the closure of growth plates, leading to potential orthopedic issues. Thoughts?
