My dog is a 6 year old spaded Pomeranian/chihuahua. She is

My dog is a 6 year old spaded Pomeranian/chihuahua. She is eating and drinking normally. However, she is going into shaking fits as of the last few days...not violent but trembling. She hides under the bed when this happens. Also, she seems to stare "into nowhere" during these fits. I'm certain no poisoning is happening.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what your dog ate?Customer: She has only eaten her normal food.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?Customer: She comes out of these fits when I ask her if she wants to go outside or if the door bell rings and she acts like nothings wrong?

We have a dog nemo that was in the back yard today and went

We have a dog nemo that was in the back yard today and went under the fence twice to get into the neighbors yard. After that I was scratching her belly and noticed a red filled in circle with a dot in the middle in her inner thigh. I've only seen her attempt to lick it once and it's been about 6 hours since I noticed it. Could this be contagious to our cats and our other dog?

our dog bella has a raised brown hard scab on her tail, bathed he on sunday and I didn't feel a bumb or see scab.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. How old is bella?Customer: i 4 yrs old anyway, she was coming inside i reached down to get grass off of her when i felt a bump. upon looking @ the bump it had a weird brown scab on it.

There is a terrible odor coming from the hole as well as the scab. when you squeeze it there is pus coming out. the hole is very deep. no blood just pus. i can feel a bump when i squeeze the pus out. I put peroxide and Neosporin on it. She is lethargic. thank you.JA: This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about bella?Customer: she is a white multipoo. bella has seizures
