I have two five month old Black lab/ German Shepard puppies.

I have two five month old Black lab/ German Shepard puppies. I'm wasn't sure which one did it (they insist on being kenneled together) but two mornings ago I went to let them out and one of them had severe diarrhea. Once they were cleaned up there was no further stools like that. One of the puppies has not been able to keep food down since Friday (it's Sunday afternoon now). He vomits within minutes of eating. Is able to keep water down. He seems sad, still snuggly. He does run around the yard and chase his brother and still messes with the cat but I'm getting worried about him!JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the puppy eat anything unusual?Customer: Not that we know of.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the puppy?Customer: They were just to the vet a few weeks ago for immunizations and got a clean bill of health. He's about 42 pounds.

My dog keep coughing like he has something in his throat he

My dog keep coughing like he has something in his throat he is trying to dislodge but nothing comes out. He then proceeds to throw up a white mucous substance. He doesn't seem to be in pain just generally annoyed. He is also pretty loud when he is coughing. He began doing this a couple days ago. He is a small mix of rat terrier and chihuahua. He is about 5 years old and is overweight due to my two toddlers feeding him table food which we try to keep away from him. Any advice, thank you.

He has IBS, saw the vet last Monday. we increased his

He has IBS, saw the vet last Monday. we increased his prednisone to bid 5mg and flagyl bid for ten days. He was doing great and for two days had two large formed bowel movements. Over the weekend he started with diarrhea again. Pure liquid but only twice per day. He is eating and drinking. vomited yesterday for the first time in 4 days so we started daily cerenia. No vomit today. He isn't as energetic but still wants to play and has gone on walks. Hes a 3 yr old boston terrier and I am wondering if it is possible he could have an obstructions even though he has no tenderness to his belly and has had a few normal BMs before going back to having diarrhea.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 important you think the Veterinarian should know about the boston terrier?Customer: When he has had IBS flare ups in the past he wouldn't eat, would be febrile and he has had no temp. Just shaking sometimes and still wants to eat and drink
