My 2yr mix breed, Neutered/Male dog has been having multiple

Hello,My 2yr mix breed, Neutered/Male dog has been having multiple gastric symptoms and I'm starting to worry. He has lost 10 pounds since September, going from 75 to 65 pounds. He has been vomiting intermittently with bouts of diarrhea. He has not pooped in the last 2 days, and his last stool was a small amount of diarrhea. He has started passing very foul gas quite often. He is not currently vomiting, but seems to be dry heaving and belching occasionally. He is eating decently, though his energy level is very low. He seems unable to get comfortable. I have had a complete blood count and a comprehensive diagnostic blood panel done, both of which were normal. A fecal flotation was negative. What is the next step? Thanks!

I just adopted a dog from an animal shelter. As a condition

I just adopted a dog from an animal shelter. As a condition of her adoption, I had to return her to the shelter within 30 days for spaying. She had the procedure done yesterday and I just picked her up. Since the surgery was done by an agency vet (I'm assuming) nothing for pain was given for take home. When I first brought the dog home, she had kennel cough, which required two weeks of treatment, and she felt pretty awful during that time. When she was most ill, I gave her half an aspirin once or twice daily, which made her feel better, able to eat, etc. She tolerated the aspirin fine, and would like to give it now, but I'm worried about bleeding. The surgery was 24 hrs ago, the incision is clean, and there is no bruising or hematoma. Would I be safe to give her aspirin now?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. It's hard to know for sure. The Veterinarian will figure it out. The Veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: She is about 10 months old, vaccinated, and otherwise healthy

My dog is an 8 y.o. male lab/pitt mix, neutered, wt. 90 lbs

My dog is an 8 y.o. male lab/pitt mix, neutered, wt. 90 lbs apparently in good health, active, loves to play, sleeps inside except for outside activities, etc. He has a lump about one inch diameter on his hind leg. I asked his vet at his last check-up over a year ago and he said don't worry, these dogs get those. I just notices he has another under the same leg. While rubbing his belly, I also noticed a lump on each side of his penis that seemed more prominent than usual. Perhaps those are just his prostrate. But should I be concerned? They are not sore, he doesn't mind if I squeeze them a little.

We just adopted a 17 month old french bulldog on Monday and

we just adopted a 17 month old french bulldog on Monday and he was neutered the same day. The past couple of days he was licking his paws a lot and throwing up a little water. This morning we took him into a urgent care to try and help him with his itchiness. His scrotum was swollen a little and red. The vet gave him a shot to control his itchiness and a shot for acid for his stomach. We were suppose to continue his pain meds and antibiotic pills when we got home. He isn't itchy anymore, but is lethargic and is throwing up a lot more. He hasn't eaten since we got home and I can't get him to take his pills. I'm hoping he can sleep it off and see how he feels in the morning, but not sure what to do if he keeps throwing up? He's drinking water and then throwing it up. When he inhales he kind of shakes a little.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. 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 the bulldog?Customer: I can tell you all the medicine if he wants to know
