I have no idea what's happening with my dog. He's not

I have no idea what's happening with my dog. He's not scooting across the rug, his anal glands look good. I took him to the vet twice, once to get his glands expressed and second to get him re-looked at. My dog is a 12 year old German Spitz who is usually full of life and energetic but suddenly not being able to walk or move. He keeps sitting down abruptly, trying to lick his butt and crying in pain everytime he walks. I genuinely have no idea what else to do and this vet said to monitor it for a few days and he seems fine. My dog is not fine, he's crying in pain and not being himself.

My pit had surgery one week ago to remove a mass by his

My pit bull had surgery one week ago to remove a mass by his right rib. (Waiting for results to see if it is cancerous). About 2 days ago we began to notice swelling down his right side leg. The stitches look fine, but the swelling is all throughout the same side down to his paw. He was eating & drinking normally, no temperature but now he won't get out of bed. He's alert but I can tell he's in pain because he won't stand up and yelps anytime he does. The vet is closed till tomorrow but I am so worried. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: My name is ***** ***** my pit bull had surgery one week ago to remove a mass by his right rib.

I have 8 yr old female bichon. Every one in a while she

I have 8 yr old female bichon. Every one in a while she starts to whine, keeps turning her head towards her back and shakes. It's more like when you get the chills, how you tense up shaking, the relaxing, then shaking, then relaxing. This goes on for a few minutes, the whole time she's whining like she's in pain. I was wondering, since it never happens at the vet's office, to help her, would a mild tranqualizer like zoloff help?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the head's name?Customer: My dogs name is*****: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Gabby?Customer: No, just that I rescued her almost a year ago and since it's hit and miss, the vet can't help me.

My dog was prescribed temaril on 2/17 for a wheezing cough.

My dog was prescribed temaril on 2/17 for a wheezing cough. She is a 14 year old husky/pit bull mix. She weighs 66lbs. The instructions were 3 tabs 2x a day for three days, then 1.5 tabs 2x day until gone. Her last dose should be tonight. She had 1.5 tabs at 8am today. She has arthritis and yesterday started limping alot. Then she tried to go up the stairs and fell and my husband has had to carry her up and down stairs and lift her onto the bed or couch. I dont know if its the temaril causing the sudden flare up, or if she just needs a pain med. The vet also prescribed rimadil 75 mg for pain but i cant give while she is on temaril p. My question is can i skip her last dose a temaril and give her rimadil instead? She had temaril last 12 hrs ago. How long do i have to wait between the last dose of temaril and the first dose of rimadil? She also has a few pills of carprofen the vet gave her before. Is that any better to take after the temaril?

My dog winchester, somehow scraped the Carpal Pad offor Ugh Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: Yes. I know stitches weren't going to be an issue. I put some peroxide on it to clean it out. I wrapped it. It's been ok. But this morning his paw is swollen. I didn't wrap his paw with it because I wanted him to walk on it after I wrapped it. This morning I wrapped his paw also as it was swollen. Will it be ok do you think?
