My 6 month old Cavapoo puppy has had an intermittent gagging

My 6 month old Cavapoo puppy has had an intermittent gagging cough. Was originally treated for kennel cough and it seemed to go away, but has reappeared. It is just occasional, and he still eats and plays fine. They did and x Ray at one point and said it could be bronchitis and treated him for that, but said it could also be worms that migrated to his lungs and we have to wait for them to migrate back out. Does that sound right?

I have an 8 wk old blue healer / pit mix. Yesterday she got

I have an 8 wk old blue healer / pit mix. Yesterday she got very bloated. She accidently ate some of my big dogs food. On Thursday we swam at my parents house, she lives the water. The only other unusual thing she found a gel silica packet out of a box , but I took it away from her before she could eat it. She has been playing, but not as much as normal. Her stomachine doesn't feel hard, just bloated. She has had 2-3 stools that were not runny but not firm. Her nose feels dry. She doesn't act in pain, just uncomfortable and when I pick her up, she grunts . She has not been vomiting, is drinking and would eat, but I haven't fed her much today.

My 75 lb Rottweiler and Berner keep getting diarrhea since

My 75 lb Rottweiler and Berner keep getting diarrhea since my move to florida a year ago. their food has been ole roy and I give them bottled water. they are inside dogs. I have had them both to the vet twice and their stool samples came up negative. both times they were given metrodiazole 500mg. To save the expense, on this most recent episode I purchased the drug myself. It works fine but when I stop the diarrhea returns. how long can I keep them on the drug? If it is not the food or the water and they are only walked, outside for very short duration, what else can be done?

We have a Siberian Husky and we have tried several different

We have a Siberian Husky and we have tried several different dog foods but none result in solid stool. We began adding 2 scoops of pumpkin which helped a little but we are paying a lot of money for Science Diet Prescription I/d dog food that isn't helping either. We tried stopping the pumpkin with it but it's back to liquid. Any insight would be appreciated.
