The Veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP.

I have a 8 month old, almost 60 pounds lab, retriever boxer mix. He ate a 8x8 pan of gharadelli brownies. He is acting fine, running playing. I did get him to eat his regular dog food after. Is there anything I need to watch for, or do I need to take him to the 24 hour emergency pet clinic?

My dog just had surgery yesterday because they found a mass

HI. my dog just had surgery yesterday because they found a mass on his gum line. It looked like a red gumball with a tiny little one hanging from it. When they were in surgery, they had to remove five teeth due to abscesses and loose teeth. My dog is 13 and I have been so reluctant to put him under, hence the problems. My vet will not tell me what he really thinks and I'm very concerned. They sent the mass for biopsy. My question is: Considering that he had teeth pulled and the abscesses, could this mass have been related??
