My name's Lydia. My dog is suddenly walking very slowly and

Hi Pearl. My name's***** dog is suddenly walking very slowly and hanging her head. I have some experience with understanding vestibular disease, so will keep an eye out for staggering or listing her head, but that's not happening at the moment. Her heartbeat seems regular and at a normal rate, but her nose is dry and her mouth a little tacky. What are your thoughts?JA: I'll do all I can to help. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: I have but I'll check again.JA: What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Can't find any wounds anywhere. Her name is***** a 9-year-old 65 pound mixed breed.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Petra?Customer: She's just finished her dinner, so her appetite is good. However it came on just as she came in from eating. She's helping herself to water. No vomiting, diarrhea or coughing. No apparent GI distress. Could a venomous spider bite cause this kind of reaction? If so, what other symptoms should I look for? I can't find any areas of swelling and her joints are mobile.JA: OK. Got it.

I have an old pitbull that desperately needs her nails

I have an old pitbull that desperately needs her nails trimmed. They are getting dangerously long. She has gone to the vet in the past to get them done but now is old enough that she can NOT get into the car. I have tried to lure her into the car, bought steps, tried a ramp, she won't use any of them, and she can't get in on her own. Additionally she will NOT allow herself to be picked up and put in. She has tried to bite previously before she was put into the car.So, we tried to do it ourselves. She will NOT NOT NOT allow us to even touch her front paws let alone cut her nails. She needs to be sedated. I have tried almost every other the counter calming aid that I can give her in order to be able to cut her nails. They don't affect her one bit. I've also tried a nail file. Again, she won't allow her back paws to be touched.I have tried to find a vet that will come to our house. B/c she hasn't been to the vet in over a year, no one will see her. Especially b/c of her age (14) and her breed.Again her nails are dangerously long!!! and I have NO idea what to do!!!

My 8yr old lab cross has had a large scab on her nose least

My 8yr old lab cross has had a large scab on her nose for at least a year. The vet we brought her to didn't know what it could be except for an allergy to her food. We changed her food a few months ago and it seems to be getting larger and she scrapes at the scab till it bleeds. Any idea of what this might be? We can send pics. ThanksJason
