Please help me! I just moved to a new state and am having a

Please help me! I just moved to a new state and am having a very difficult time finding a caring Veterinarian for my beautiful Boxer girl, Summer. She is 8 yrs old, has always been healthy and is my best friend and helper dog as i am disabled. We need on another desperately. I am trying to sell my home and move back to my old state/area so I can get her old Vet back again. He cared more about her than his bottom dollar.Now her issue which seemed to pop up over night. I wash her face frequently with a warm wash rag with just water on it. Last night, as I was washing her face, the skin on the right side of her face, her cheek area just below her nose started to bleed in three tiny spots and her skin just came away so easily. It frightened me because i know that Boxers are prone to skin cancer. If i were to take some pictures , close ups of the area would you be able to tell me more of what it might be?I would appreciate any help you could give at this point. My search for a Vet continues but I have not found one yet. Thank you for your time, Summers, Mom, Ellen S. Robison

He is a12 yr old, 25 lb daschund who has had back problems

He is a12 yr old, 25 lb daschund who has had back problems before. He is taking Simplef 100mg and Ketocaonazole 200mg that the vet prescribed him while one vacation due to his rubbing his chest/belly area raw from itching. Yesterday he tried to jump up on the couch and injured his back again and his back legs are partially paralyzed again and he is having back pain. We've given him Rimadyl (1/2 of a 75mg once daily) for this before and he eventually recovered/. Can he take Rimadyl with the meds he is on currently?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: Are you still there?JA: No. I'm the Veterinarian's Assistant.Customer: No, his feet are fine.JA: What is the dog's name?Customer: OliverJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Oliver?Customer: No, I just need to know if these meds can be taken together.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

I have a Shar Pei-Chow mix (2 years old) and the vet said he had ear problems, and packed both ears with opti pac. The vet said to leave it in for two weeks until the next vet appt. My concern is that some dog owners complain (I read about complaints from dog owners around the USA of opti pac's negative side effects) of the negative side effects of opti pac such as deafness after several weeks of use. My dog had allergic reactions to tresoderm prescribed by another vet, so I could not use that and the Apoquel prescription I had to 1/2 because it was too strong. The optic pac is working as the dog is not shaking his head anymore. However, should I leave that stuff in his ears for a full two weeks or just one week or less? How often should I wash my dogs ears? I let him do doggy stuff like dig for groundhogs. I was using a organic apple cider/witch hazel/cod liver oil wash. The vet gave a commercial ear wash that contains alcohol but also perfume, etc. My dogs ears do not smell. What can I do to help build my dog's immunity so he does not have allergies or get ear fungus--natural products? ( I am almost certain that my dog may be allergic to a particular outdoor type of native plant that grows around two feet tall, as I see him sneezing around it, and sneezing after he is around it). Otherwise, my dog is healthy.
