Hes a 7 year od Shihtzu, usually full of spunk ready to chase a ball at the sound of "ba..". Today he's very skittish and acts like he's waiting for me to scold him for something. He's been moving slow but not limping, he's had 2 bowel movements today, one with a little bit of mucus in. I just changed his dog food so I am wondering if maybe it's that. I usually take a week and mix with previous, but this time was only about 2 days worth. It's the same brand just a different flavor. He's very anti social which isn't like him at all.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: yes there is no woundJA: The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name?Customer: OscarJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Oscar?Customer: No

If my dog has had a pappiloma in his mouth for over 30 days,

If my dog has had a pappiloma in his mouth for over 30 days, is he still contagious? He hasn't been at daycare for over a month, and he really misses the play time; but I don't want to cause problems for other dogs. I know he's the youngest dog in daycare right now and he's 8 months old. I did have him looked at my his vet and she thought it would be gone by now.

My dog has hunched posture this morning after went to the

My dog has hunched posture this morning after went to the bath. I saw some discomfort on her but her stools were normal. After she got in didn't want to eat and still has her arched posture and shaking a little bit. Last year she got really sick with bloody diarrhea and foaming yellow vomit and sometimes it was dark vomit. She has lots of special blood tests to rule out pancreatics, ultrasound and Xrays and they didn't find anything. The said that it could IBs or gastric ulcers. Her diet was changed and since then (September of last year) the yellow vomit stopped and her stools are normal. Since some weeks ago she has some days where doesn't want to eat in the morning and then eats later. Something may be going on. Her diet is half of Z diet Hills can and half of a mix of cooked ground beef with mashed potatoes with sweet potatoes. She eats 3 ounces on each meal (three times a day). She is a miniature Poodle 7 years old.

Yesterday we adopted a rescue a small dog from an adoption clinic. She was crated a great deal of time. Last night, I had a hard time placing her in the crate for sleeping. I tried placing treats in her crate to entice her but it ended up with me forcing her in. She did a good job overnight and slept well but I don't want to battler her every night. Any suggestions?
