Our AmStaff x (rescue) is 20 months old and had surgery in

Our AmStaff x (rescue) is 20 months old and had surgery in November to remove a growth on his lip as he'd made it bleed when chewing on one of his toys. The vet initially believed it was nothing to worry about. Now on the same site a cluster of six wart looking growths have appeared and seem to multiply every few days. We're reluctant to take him back for surgery as it's not something we can afford right now and the recovery period was traumatic. Is there anything I can do either naturopathicly or homeopathicly?

He's been acting completely normal until the last 30

He's been acting completely normal until the last 30 minutes...it seems like he can't lay down. I gave them dinner at 530pm, he ate. Only thing different is that I did put his heartworm chewy in his dinner, but he's had them for several years and never had a reaction. I almost got him to lay down he sat and when he tried to put his front feet down he grunted and stood right back up quickJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?Customer: TuckerJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tucker?Customer: Not really--no vomiting or diarrhea. He's a 12yr border collie/bernese mtn dog mix

My daughter and I are on vacation with our two Lowchens.

I am Renee. My daughter and I are on vacation with our two Lowchens. When we came home from the beach this afternoon Tovah Rose had a snack (some yogurt) and a nap. Emily and I left the dogs in their crates, went down to watch the sunset. When we came back and gave them their dinner, Tovah was not at all interested and refused to eat. She has had her tail tucked up tight between her legs. She has been laying in the corner most of the evening. I took the dogs for a short walk about 8:00. Tovah peed twice and pooped. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: Sorry, I accidentally hit send. She walked with her tail up and seemed okay until after she pooped and then she again seemed to want to tuck her tail down. She just followed me into the bedroom and seemed to want to get on the bed. That's where she is now. She is not showing any other symptoms...tail tucked, no appetite, lethargy. We did not take her temperature, but we could do that. She clearly doesn't feel well.

My dog has been on alprozolam to help with her anxiety at

my dog has been on alprozolam to help with her anxiety at night (she is a nervous dog as it is but she has particularly gotten worse) she also has been taking tramadol occasionally as she partially tore her ACL and instead of surgery I opted for rest. She is on the mend, no longer limping and is doing better. She is no longer taking tramadol consistently, and has only been taking alprozolam. Lately at night, the past few months shes been on it, she has gotten very antsy at night, panting, breathing heavy and constantly on the move. She can not lay down for more than a minute without popping back up. I am thinking it is an adverse reaction to the medication since this behavior only happens at night time, and she only gets medication at night time. During the day she is calm. She was phased down to .50 of alprozolam, and my vet said its a low enough dose that I can probably just stop giving it to her. She was taking .75, I phased her down to about .60, and now .50. Is it ok to do? and have you seen behavior like this?
