Yesterday after eating s normal food--that I make myself =

Hi Paul--Yesterday after eating his normal food--that I make for him myself = roasted chicken + rice + corn + broccoli + sweet potato, he sat down and started shaking, then stood up after I comforted him for a little bit, and started walking around in a confused manner, could not control his legs & fell down, did this for a couple of seconds (less than a minute), at which point I went and got a turkey baster full of water and injected it down his throat--not too fast, not too slow to avoid choking but to get him to swallow it.... then I got my bag, scooped him up & drove to an emergency room, but on the way he recuperated and was fine by the time we arrived. Nevertheless, I checked him in and waited for 2 hours to be seen, however at that point asked for him to be returned, planning to take him to his regular vet today. His poop this morning was fine, and he ran during his usual walk, no problem... so I do't have a clue as to what happened or is going on. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!JA: OK.

My 4 pound 6 year old yorkie snores and snorts and there is a really bad smell that seems to be deeper than just the breath. I really don't smell it until she starts the snoring and snorting.

My cavalier seems out of sorts. He doesn't want to eat (not even his favorite treat). Since yesterday wants to be on my lap but is reluctant to jump into my lap. If I put him in my lap he cuddles up like he always does. When I take him out he doesn't seem interested in the squirrels or birds like he usually does. He just does his business and waits to come back in. Should I be concerned or see if this passes?

My 6 month old French bulldog has had a runny nose day and a

My 6 month old French bulldog has had a runny nose for a day and a half. Only one nostril is runny. It has a yellowish discharge/mucus and I can hear the mucus when he snores. He's been very sleepy all day today but still eating all meals happily and drinking lots of water. Is this something to worry about? Or could this be a simple cold
