My 5 yo male miniature schnauzer has started toileting
My 5 yo male miniature schnauzer has started toileting inside, despite being toilet trained his whole life. He has ready access between indoors and the backyard via a doggy door. At first I thought it was due to the cold weather, and him not wanting to go outside, get his feet wet etc, but even on warm, sunny days I have caught him urinating on the rugs inside (one which is less than a metre from the doggy door) and if I don't shut him in my bedroom with me at night, guaranteed he will defecate on the rug - where he used to go outside. Any advice?Thanks, Jenny
My nephew's dog was just diagnosed with Canine brucellosis.
My nephew's dog was just diagnosed with Canine brucellosis. This was discovered when this dog's litter mate was diagnosed and subsequently put down so my nephew had their dog tested and it came up positive. Our dog and two others were all playing together when we were all at my mother-in-law's pool and back yard. The dogs were sharing a water dish also. Do I need to be concerned about my dog contracting this bacterial infection? As well as the other dogs?

My 18 month Lakeland Terrier was neutered on Friday. He has been on Meloxicam since. Today He has had diarrhea, I haven't given his Meloxicam dose for today and I have fed chicken and rice. He is drinking and voiding. Anything else I should do before the vet office opens in the am? He has had probably 10 loose, green stools today.

my 14 1/2 yr old jack Russell that is in great shape for his age just peed lying down this morning on my bath mat and has never done that before? I am very worried should I bring him to the vet asap ? I dont want to neglect something that can be fixed with immediate attentionJA: I'm sorry to hear that. It's hard to know for sure. The Veterinarian will figure it out. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Russell?Customer: i guess he has slowed down quite a bit but i just figured it was old age..

1.5 year old male neutered choc. lab. 72 pounds. Rhett was fine all day. Ate normal dinner. No changes to food or anything. He came in from the outside and soon after returning his head looked patterned as if her leaned against a gate or he looked like Yoda from Star Wars. I gave him 3 benadryl. his eyes are clear, so are his ears... gums are pink and nose is wet. eating, drinking, playing. checked him over, he lets me touch everything. no noises, or complaints. acting totally normal
