My 8 year old poodle mix has had four occasions of suddenly

My 8 year old poodle mix has had four occasions of suddenly not wanting to eat anything, with a loud stomach and discomfort that ended in diarrhea. The first two times were several days apart about two weeks ago. Last week it happened again but the end of the diarrhea was very bloody, not just streaks. Once it passed he was fine and went back to eating and playing as usual. A day or two later it happened again with even more blood. His stool starts as normal and the tale end is bloody diarrhea. The first three times were in the morning. The most recent time happened in the middle of the night last Saturday. Since he went back to normal after it passed I didn't take him to the emergency pet hospital. Now it's been almost three days of normal stool and eating, although his breath does smell a little odd. During the course of these episodes he was getting into the food I feed my large dogs. He liked it so much that I bought the small breed version. I mixed that with his food the day of or before the first bloody incident so I assumed there must be something in that brand of food that he can't handle, but I'm wondering if it could be something else.

Our mix breed lab has been diagnosed with a cancerous mass

Our mix breed lab has been diagnosed with a cancerous mass cell tumor. The growth is located on his snout, just above his nose. Our vet said it's not operable because of the location. We have decided not to treat it with radidation or other treatments because he is over 11 years old and we don't want to put him through it. The actual growth came up last fall. I was wondering what we should be looking for in regards ***** ***** and symptoms and what type of time he might have left. We don't want him to be in pain. Thank you.

My nephew's dog was just diagnosed with Canine brucellosis.

My nephew's dog was just diagnosed with Canine brucellosis. This was discovered when this dog's litter mate was diagnosed and subsequently put down so my nephew had their dog tested and it came up positive. Our dog and two others were all playing together when we were all at my mother-in-law's pool and back yard. The dogs were sharing a water dish also. Do I need to be concerned about my dog contracting this bacterial infection? As well as the other dogs?
