I sprayed scrubbing bubbles bathroom cleaner in the tub and I found my dog in the tub- I think he may have been licking it. I gave him a bath and I gave him peroxide hoping he would puke but it's been 20 min and so far he hasn't even puked. I'm worried. What should I do? Give him milk?

My dog is drooling a lot. He never drools. And when he drinks water out of his bowl, a layer of white substance is left at the top of his bowl, which we think is saliva.

The Veterinarian will know what to do with the drooling.

We recently added to our family a 6 month old CKC. He is now

We recently added to our family a 6 month old CKC. He is now 7 months old and seems like he has adapted really well to the new environment. When we took him, Grady, to our vet for his initial visit on 4/1/17, (required by the breeder), he had ear mites. He is a pure bred, that was brought over from Ireland and has an excellent pedigree. Vet cleaned out his ears manually and prescribed tresaderm sol. 15ml which we gave him 5-6 drops/day for 7 days. We also did two vaccines, bordatella #1 and leptospirosis #1. Grady had already been given nobivac #1 and bordatella #1 on 1/11/17 and 2/1/17, however she explained too much time had lapsed on the bortella so we needed to start that one again. In addition she did a fecal exam that was sent to the lab. Came back clear. On 4/13 we introduced 1 tsp. of "dog specific pumpkin", to his 3/4 cups grain free FROM dry food because he had not really been eating hardly any of his food. That night he had a middle of the night "go nuts" episode for about 2-3 hours. I again took him to our vet when they opened. She said everything appeared normal with the exception of him having a sore stomach. They did x-rays and everything was clear with no foreign objects. He also still had crud in his hears, although the vet said thankfully the ear mites were gone but he had a bit of a yeast infection in his ears. She did a "rinse" that she said was a one time treatment in addition to prescribing Triz KETO 4oz w. batril 1200mg that we were to give him twice/day for 10 days. Also did fecal exam, in house, that they said was clean. Since that visit we have continued with the ear treatment, although he is continuing to scratch at them and shake his head quite a bit. Over the last week we introduced 1 spoonful of canned grain free avengers to his GF FROM dry food which he eats right up. Reason for introducing the different foods to his diet were due to a lack of eating just the dry FROM without us adding some cottage cheese to it. The last 3 days he has had the poops, with a lot more frequency of pooping, than normal, (5-8/day) in addition to being loose with more volume and appears to be having additional strain. Little background on Grady.....We did a program with a very well, established breeder where he stayed with the breeders trainer for the first 5 months to get leash and crate trained. We have continued with the crate training following the trainers instructions and he is excellent in regards ***** ***** in his crate all night and has not had any accidents in his crate to date. In the middle of the night last night he woke us up so I took him out. He pooped a good amount of very loose stool and seemed to need to get more out by walking around in the yard in the "ready to poop" position. I could hear some tummy rumbling as well as liquidy sounding gas. After about ten minutes I brought him back inside and he went pee for the first time inside, which was followed by another large, very loose poop. Any thoughts and/or advice would be much appreciated. I do not like having him on any type of medicine or treatment unless its the proper thing to do. My concerns are the continued issues with his ear infections, finding a good diet for him that he enjoys and results in solid normal poops and properly addressing, (not over medicating) his spouts of diarrhea. Thanks in advance!! Chris, Tallahassee/FL
