I have a 2 y/o male boxer brindle with bumps I s legs and

I have a 2 y/o male boxer brindle with bumps I his legs and the edges of his trunk, onto the bare area on his pelvis and I top of his head. He has had skin problems in the past, so we did not worry right as they came up since he has had a history of skin problems, but they do not seem to be getting better. They've been present now about 1.5 weeks. I also have a 5 year old boxer who has not gotten them & he has been checked for fleas closely and hasn't missed a flea treatment, therefore I do not believe it to be fleas or anything contagious. He doesn't itch them. No change in activity/intake. Very happy and outgoing.

I have owened 3 boston terriers. The first 2 that passed

I have owened 3 boston terriers. The first 2 that passed away were females. My current one is a male 7 mos. old. When I take him out to potty, he wants to eat other animal feces, not his. Potty training went very well but now we have this problem. My 2 females never showed any kind of this behavior. What do I do?😕

My dog has terminal mammary cancer since last year March.

My dog has terminal mammary cancer since last year March. Hospitals all said she can only live 6 months and chemotherapy will not help her. I went to a holistic vet and she is still here and fighting, but this past month in a half..she is having frequent fevers, this past week she lost alot of her appetite because she has another fever and her tumor has been ulcerating since 3 weeks ago. Today she barely ate her breakfast. Now for dinner she did eat..however she threw up her entire dinner after an hour of eating the food. What do I do?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 your dog?Customer: We took an xray due to her frequent fevers and it's slowly spreading to her lungs. She is on neoplasms medication which I'm supposed to give her 2 times a day but due to her fever and loss of appetite I could not. She had 6 sessions of ozone therapy on her blood 1 month in a half ago. And the doctor did topical blood root on the tumor last week..which is supposed help dissolve the tumor but I feel like its a bigger mass next to where he did it now. Fevers not going down. He told me not to give her anymore antibiotic which is clava moxie I used. She also developed a utility 1 month ago..but I don't know he never followed up with that but she can't hold her urine in. She gets up and she has to pee right awayJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
