My 15 year old Lhasa died after going about 11 days without

My 15 year old Lhasa died after going about 11 days without eating. He was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease a few months ago and I'm pretty sure he had doggie dementia. I took him to Vet when he didn't eat anything all day.this was not all that unusual cause sometimes he would skip a day or two. But he seemed to have trouble popping. He would walk a few steps, squat but nothing would happen. He kept repeating this and never pooped. This is why I took him to Vet. Also his annual shots were due. Well after his shots he never wanted to eat again. They tried different foods and he had fluids intravenously. Vet said he was too nauseated to eat. They sorta blame the kidney disease. I feel like those shots were the reason he got sick and he was too old for shots. If only I had not allowed them to give him the shots,he would be with me today. I miss him so very much. What do you think happened?

I have a Pit Bull/Yellow Lab He has a cough at times and pukes a lot.He usually pukes up what appears to be saliva in large amounts and his food after he eats.He also groans when laying down or getting up or sometimes just repositioning himself.He still has energy but its been too hot to walk him.He had the flu a few weeks ago and seem to never get over it completely.He did test positive for lyme disease before we got him two and one half years ago.Now he is three and one half.I have been feeding him hamburger and rice along with bland dog food recommended by the vet.The vet took blood test which was normal.

Our 8.5-year-old male Boxer developed a hack (not a cough)

Our 8.5-year-old male Boxer developed a hack (not a cough) 12 days ago. We immediately took him to the vet and he received a prescription for Amoxicillian. The hack did not go away but he completed the bottle of pills--at that time he also developed a leaky bladder. So, back to the vet we went; this time we were given Baytril. The hack and bladder leaks have not stopped and this is his 2nd day on the Baytril. His lab work that was done 2 days ago, showed his RBC, HCT & PLT were low; his MCHC, RETIC and NEU were high; all other levels were normal. We're concerned he has not been accurately diagnosed. He has no other symptoms and has always been very healthy.

My 4 yr. old mountain cur just coughed up some clear & slightly foamy substance. Noticed him coughing a few times yesterday. But he is shedding and licking himself. So I am not sure if it is hair-balls or kennel cough. If kennel cough, can it be home treated? Or should I take him to the vet.?

My dog is about 2 years old. Boxer shepherd mix we think.

My dog is about 2 years old. Boxer shepherd mix we think. She has been panting, licking, eating grass and licking any cloth she can. She has a intermittent cough or gag reflex. She has had some acid reflux and she is currently licking my head. Is all this due to the acid reflux? This is the second episode in the last few weeks and it seems to come and go.
