Our AmStaff x (rescue) is 20 months old and had surgery in

Our AmStaff x (rescue) is 20 months old and had surgery in November to remove a growth on his lip as he'd made it bleed when chewing on one of his toys. The vet initially believed it was nothing to worry about. Now on the same site a cluster of six wart looking growths have appeared and seem to multiply every few days. We're reluctant to take him back for surgery as it's not something we can afford right now and the recovery period was traumatic. Is there anything I can do either naturopathicly or homeopathicly?

My 38lb 9yr old female heathy Labradoodle has a cyst on her

My 38lb 9yr old female heathy Labradoodle has a cyst on her back that was aspirated a year or so ago by our vet and determined to be benign and just a cyst. Yesterday, she began fussing with it and we noticed it was oozing some fluid. So we were washing her to clean the area up and found she had opened a wound about the size of a dime, and we could see some had white masses inside that came out when we sprayed water on it. The largest was the size of an English pea. She didn't seem to be bothered by us fussing with it. Most of the white solid mass came out but we can see more in the wound which is about 1/4 inch deep. We put peroxide on it and it doesn't seem to be bleeding. We also put a cone on her that we had from another skin issue. We are planning to see the vet tomorrow, but should we apply anything like neosporin or an antiseptic until the visit?

My terrier is having hiccup / feed type symptoms all night

My terrier is having hiccup / feed type symptoms all night with head bob that is pretty visible. I suspect he collected a small amount of power amdro type solution on his paws yesterday and I think he has possibly licked his paws and ingested it. Is there something I can give him to alleviate his symptoms?
