Batman has been limping hours. When he puts any weight on s

Batman has been limping for 36 hours. When he puts any weight on his leg, it shakes. I started an assessment of his bones and toes, when I found a lump on his leg, I can decide if its a tick or a blood blister. I read several websites trying to decide and I thought it was a tick. I tried the appropriate way to remove a tick and now it just appears that I am pulling at a blood blister. I'm afraid I am hurting him, but I cant find anything else wrong.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 dog?Customer: NoJA: OK.

My dog Penny ( 15 Lbs Pom / Chi mix ) has been being treated

My dog Penny ( 15 Lbs Pom / Chi mix ) has been being treated for inflammation of the nasal cavity after vomiting thru her nose while sleeping due to a vestibular / neurological disorder she has. She was first given convenia shot 5 days after episode and 3 days after that, Zithromax liquid antibiotic which she has been on for going on 9 days. Left nostril appears to be not restrictive now for 2 days but right one is blocked up and causing discomfort. I have been administering coupage 3 to 4 times a day for 10 - 15 mins in shower. Also humidifier used over night near her snout. On 17th day since original incident. Not much discharge out of nostril but she is obviously still having issue. I'm not avt but she keeps coughing / gagging so I suspect what ever is rotting in her nasal cavity is dripping down her throat. Bott***** *****ne question is after 17 days of this regimen, what are the odds 1.) that there is trapped remnants in her nostril? 2.) that this will clear itself on its own after 17 days whit out outside intervention? ( I.E. ... Sedation / Rhinoscopy ) . Thanks, Mike

We have a black lab that we discovered got in the pantry and ate 2 Nature Valley Fruit and Nut granola bars, 2 Sunbelt fudge dipped granola bars, 2 fig breakfast bars and some chocolate stars. We came home to find her very bloated, leaking gas and uncomfortable. We gave her one gas x and are wondering if there is anything else we can do to make her more comfortable? I know that several ingredients are not safe such as raisins, figs and chocolate....any help/advice is appreciated!

I have a two-part question about my 4 and a half year old

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have a two-part question about my 4 and a half year old Pomchi, Penny. 8 days ago she vomited while sleeping in our bed while laying on her side from being dizzy because she has a vestibular disorder. She does not chew her food too well, so the wet food she eats is chunky andthe vomit contained a lot of chunks in it. I am pretty certain Beyond Reasonable Doubt that some of this material is still remaining up in her nasal passages. Not enough to completely block her breathing but she does continuously try to clear her nose. We have taken her to our vet which extacted a bugger , and give her a shot of convinia 5 days ago after a mucousy discharge started to come out. Then 2 days ago , we stepped it up a notch and took her to a local 24hr specialty vet which put her on azithromax. That was 48 hours ago and she is still showing discharge. What would you suggest doing?
