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.

I have a 7 year old standard poodle with on and off again

I have a 7 year old standard poodle with on and off again bloody diarrhea - responsive to flagyl tho. We have had ultrasounds, X-rays, blood work and fecal exam - all normal. The vet is suggesting a colonoscopy. She had a horrid reaction to vaccine for leptosirios when she was a pup - with resulting liver issues. We do not give her vaccines on the specialists advice. Colonoscopy or not? Could anesthetic cause problems? Have to drive 3 hours to vet for scope. Thanks so much.

My 2 1/2 yr old cockapoo has been throwing up off and on

My 2 1/2 yr old cockapoo has been throwing up off and on for the past month. I took him to our vet and he did x-rays and blood test. All came back OK, but he is continuing to do it every few days. I have changed his food, he is on dry food. Any ideas what I can do to help? Should I take him back, his weight is fine and he is active.
