My 4 yr. old mountain cur just coughed up some clear & slightly foamy substance. Noticed him coughing a few times yesterday. But he is shedding and licking himself. So I am not sure if it is hair-balls or kennel cough. If kennel cough, can it be home treated? Or should I take him to the vet.?

My 9 yr old pitbull was diagnosed with lymphoma on the 16th

My 9 yr old pitbull was diagnosed with lymphoma on the 16th of this month. We went on Tuesday to the Dog cancer center a couple hours away and found out that she was in 3-4 stage of the lymphoma. We have her on prednisone and she has been panting a lot the last couple days but last night and during the day today when she is laying down for a awhile her body seems to get cold to the touch and she feels almost to get stiff. Is this normal or an indication that she quite sick and I should make that call. I am almost scared she will pass in the middle of the night.

I have a question about a puppy who has been separated from

I have a question about a puppy who has been separated from her mother. The litter appears to be 3x's bigger in weight and overall size compared to this puppy. I have removed this puppy from her pack because she was not eating and has bad diarrhea. Her poop is dark green. She will not interact with her litter mates and will hide in the corner of the whelping box.She appears to be the runt although I might just be assuming so based on her weight.My question is regarding removal from the litter mates completely while she gets better or do I put her back into the whelping box ? I know it is important for puppies to be with other dogs to develop skills needed in life. I have been giving this pup a lot of love and affection and she sleeps bundled up in her favorite blanket next to me at night. I just want this pup to have the best shot at getting what she needs to get better.Please advise.
