Our 10 year old Basset Hound has hyperkeratosis on her nose.

Our 10 year old Basset Hound has hyperkeratosis on her nose. She has had it for a while. It doesn't seem to bother her much. We have been treating it with nose butter and its slowly improving. The underside of her nose, directly underneath - not really on her 'lip' area - has become pink, red and just today I noticed darker patches that look like more raw or sore areas. Its a thin line that runs under her nose, almost as if she were over licking...? I can take a photo and send it if that would help!

Was just brusing my old 11yr German Shepherd out and

Hi, was just brusing my old 11yr German Shepherd out and realized she has two huge mass on her for chest and kind by her armpit. Obviously she needs to go to the vet, but they are hard don't move freely so I'm wondering if this is Cancer? I just want to prepare myself a little as we just lost another pet to old age recently.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. 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: She really over weight has been the last 5 yrs, she's been on a special diet and it hasn't made a difference, she has no bladder control and leaks all the time, especially when sleeping. She has bad arthritis and is overall acting older. She's still in great spirits though.

About two months ago I noticed a small, flat, round, white spot on my dogs back paw pad. It wasn't causing him any pain so I let it go. Now I've noticed it has gotten a little bigger (circumference wise). Is this something to be concerned about?

My 15 year old dog has a yellowish/ thick vaginal discharge.

my 15 year old dog has a yellowish/green thick vaginal discharge. I have taken her to the vet twice for the same problem and she put her on antibiotics, it seemed that it may have helped for a week after the second round of antibiotics. The vet says at this point, she'll have to do a costly test to see what else might be going on. I hesitated on doing that because my dog has cancer, not currently causing her any issues. its a long story, I forgot what type. She started chemo tx about 6 months ago but got very ill from it and hospitalized. It was recommended we not go further. She had the discharge and 1st antibiotics before chemo. once recovered from her downturn from chemo, I took her in for the discharge again. That was 2 months ago. As I said, the antibiotics seemed to have helped for like a week, then it started again and now it seems to be happening more often. What should I do, is my doctor correct? Help please!!
