My german shepherd has a circle rash on his stomach. We aren't able to take him in for care until next weekend. I wanted to see if I could get some answers as to what's going on. And maybe make him more comfortable. He is also having some discharge from his private area.

My 2 year old Lab, typically very calm, didn't finish her

My 2 year old Lab, typically very calm, didn't finish her supper, then 30 minutes later threw up what she had eaten. Her belly is distended, tho not painful.The vet put her on cephalexin, 500 mg, 3xday yesterday for 7 days, along with Temeril P 2xday for 10 days to treat what seems to be an extension of a prior staph infection. The distension happened about 2 hours after giving her the cephalexin in a pill pocket.Her breathing seemed normal a few hours ago. Now it is slightly faster.Should I take her to an emergency vet?
