Hello! My 16 week old pup has been having diarrhea off and on for about five days.

She is otherwise her normal, active, happy self.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the pup eat anything unusual?Customer: Thankfully, it has all been outside. In one of her stools, I saw a small piece of one of her tug toys and thought "ah ha, that must have been the culprit!" but she is still having diarrhea.JA: What is the pup's name?Customer: StellaJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Stella?Customer: This all began the morning after she received her third round of vaccines (including her rabies shot).

My 13 pound, 8 year old dog had urine taken from a syringe

Hi, my 13 pound, 8 year old dog had urine taken from a syringe on April 20th. She had a bladder stone operation back in January so the vet wanted to test the urine. During this visit, she also had a Lyme booster. When we got home 30 minutes later she started acting really weird and yelped about 3 times when I tried to lift her out of the car. She then wouldn't let me look at her side and has been very careful over the last few days when she lays down and won't let me get near it. Today while she was napping I got a glimpse of her stomach on her left side and it's all bruised with a large bruise (about the size of a small woman's fist) on her lower belly. It's purple/black in color and when she stands it hangs down like a water balloon. She's not acting weird anymore which I think was from the booster but she's still yelping when I get near the bruised area. My vet is closed now and I'm wondering if I should take her to the emergency vet or if I can wait until my vet opens in the morning. Her gums look normal (although they have black spots because she's part yorkie), her tongue is pink and she's eating/pooping/peeing like normal. She's even a little bit playful today but she's not able to jump or run around a lot. I can tell she's still being careful with the bruised side.
