My 1 yr old catahoula mix threw up this morning around 6am,

my 1 yr old catahoula mix threw up this morning around 6am, then twice sometime between 1 and 5pm. I did give her some oily sweet potato chips in a toy at noon.... She just threw up again at about 530 pm. All but the last time the vomit looked like sand (yellowish and small "particles") but was actually very slimy and soft. There were some chunks of her morning kibble in there as well. She wont eat her dinner or drink water at this point. She is definitely a chewer, and tends to munch on and swallow bits of toys, no matter how hard I try. Should I be concerned about an obstruction based on this information?

I have a year and a half old female Siberian husky named

I have a year and a half old female Siberian husky named Napa. The past month she has developed a nasty odor. Seems to only come from her chest, tummy, and behind areas. Not from the top. Washed her with the average flea/tick shampoo which did not help at all and tried some odor killing shampoo today, to no success. I can only describe the smell as "butt-hole"ish smell. Read a lot about canine anal glands but I'm not convinced because it is strongest on her chest area.Suggestions?

11 week old Javanese is lethargic with a slightly elevated

11 week old Javanese is lethargic with a slightly elevated heart rate. He came to us 3 days ago and I immediately started slowly changing his food from purina puppy chow to blue buffalo small dog kibble. I've only given him a little bit of it so far though but his stool is slightly runny. This may or may not be connected, obviously, but I mention it in case.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?Customer: GeorgeJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about George?Customer: Nothing I can think of.

My 45 lb pit mix got loose today from my fenced yard. 't

My 45 lb pit mix got loose today from my fenced yard. Don't know how but will check all possibilities in a.m. She was found by my roommate after a few (possibly) hours out loose. She whimpered when we touched her back left leg; I can find no marks or swelling. I'm afraid someone may have kicked or hit her. Roommate's dog was 17 and on a small bit of Meloxicam daily. I got the bottle from the animal meds drawer and gave her one 7.5 mg pill before realizing that it was Roommate's Rx. Have I overdosed my Lucy on Melox? Do I need to take action? She's ate her kibble before the med was given. Please advise. Thank you. Delta.
