My dog was having his teeth descaled and polished an the vet

My dog was having his teeth descaled and polished an the vet found a lump under the tongue which he removed and sent for analysis. The results that came back were that they couldn't be certain what it was. This was 3 weeks ago. Now my dog is quite lethargic and is not interested in food and I have now found a small lump on his side. Any suggestions

Last night after I picked my dog up from doggie day care I

Hi! Last night after I picked my dog up from doggie day care I noticed he was walking slower than normal. When we got home, he seemed shaky on his legs and didn't want to walk a lot. He also has trouble sitting. While I was out today he pooped on the floor, which he never does - he always waits to go outside. Last thing - some of his paw pads are ripped, but not to the point of bleeding, just the top layer.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: Just the top layer of the pads on 3 feet are torn. But not to the point of drawing blood, it seems very surface level.JA: What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Finley, he's 1JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Finley?Customer: Noe *nope

For the past 4 years our schnauzer has used our fenced in

For the past 4 years our schnauzer has used our fenced in backyard freely as his oasis. He has NOT been regularly dewormed since he usually is in our backyard or on pavement walks with us. For half the year there is a lot of snow outside. We try to pickup weekly but some feces will go unnoticed until much later because they can be so tiny. My daughter was born in January and we started deworming him monthly in June along with flea and tick medication. He has never shown and outward signs of having worms...but I know that sometimes dogs can carry roundworms without any signs. Is there a chance the dog can potentially bring in eggs from potentially contaminated soil in the backyard from the past four years? What are the chances he will bring in something that can harm my baby? Should I limit his access to the backyard from now on?

I have 2 almost 5 month old yorkie puppies. About 3 days ago

Hi My name is ***** ***** I have 2 almost 5 month old yorkie puppies. About 3 days ago they both ate a small amount of vanilla ice cream. The same night my female yorkie had diarreah that lasted throughout the night. Once we got home she threw up what looked like bile. I kept a close eye on both of their waste to make sure the diarreah had stopped. I woke up this morning and went into the puppies room where I found a small amount of throw up on a blanket and a waste pipe that contained mucous. Her attitude has not changed and she is playing with me and her brother like normal. Could all of this be contributed to the ice cream?

We have two dogs - an 11 year old cockapoo and a 2 year old

Hi, we have two dogs - an 11 year old cockapoo and a 2 year old mini labradoodle. On Friday, they were both groomed by the same person. The older one is completely fine, but the younger one, Chewy, has been acting weird since he got home. He has always been a very happy, outgoing dog, but now he's hiding in the closet or just laying on the couch, and we have to coax him to go outside. When we do go outside, it seems like his rear end is bothering him. Inside, instead of following me around the house, he runs from room to room, looking for the nearest couch, bed or soft spot to hide or curl up. He was cut really short, so I don't know if that's bothering him. I brought him to out vet, who said physically he is fine. He believes something at the groomer spooked him. The vet gave us a spray to spray on his bedding and inside his crate. It's supposed to calm him. He also gave us Xanax, but we're apprehensive about giving him that when we're at work in the event he has a negative reaction to it. I've talked to the groomer, who of course claims that nothing happened. I'm just worred that he is permanently like this, and it breaks my heart. Any insight you can give would be appreciated. Thanks.
