the other day our 5 year old lab came home from some neighborhood adventure and the top of his snout above his nose was a bit swollen and covered in clear puss. Now a day and a half later it's really swollen and red. Not sure if he encountered some kind or thorn or another animal. So it's memorial day and there are no vets around this area. I have a bunch of amoxicillin available for him but wasn't sure if I should; although I am certain whatever it is, is infectedJA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: HenryJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Henry?Customer: He is very healthy normal, still acts like a puppy lab

I have a toy poodle approx 9-10 years old and we are

HiI have a toy poodle approx 9-10 years old and we are currently in Spain on a European tour.Recently she is struggling to jump up, take steps and is quieter than normal. But is still wagging her tail.About a week ago she had an upset tummy (sick and diarrhoea) over 2 evenings - she was ok during the day and continued to eat and drink. She has had normal stools ever since.Prior to her upset tummy she had been on a diet of raw chicken bones but I've switched to cooked chicken and vegetables dinners now.I have also removed 2 ticks over the past 6 weeks.I have felt her legs and back and she doesn't show signs of pain.Can you offer any guidance as to the cause?Thanks
