My 9.5 year old Siberian Husky has in the last 6 - 9 months

My 9.5 year old Siberian Husky has in the last 6 - 9 months increased her body weight by 30% by consuming at least double her normal intake of food. In addition, she is drinking at least 2 litres of water daily and urinating every 3 - 4 hours. Up until now, her health has been excellent. Any ideas or suggestions?Thanks,Paul Lawrence

I noticed just before going to bed tonight that my doggy

I noticed just before going to bed tonight that my doggy Akira has a big red rash and it's swollen in the center right by her groin area. she did get into a little bit of a ruckus with another dog 6 days ago but she was fine Just a bit bruised. I was wondering if there is anything you can tell me I should be concerned about. There are 2 white spots in the mindset of the red.I also got a call from the vet that she is a little bit anemic and the culture he took came back with fungus in her nails. I can send a picture.Please let me know what you think as I am very worried.

He's a german shepherd/malamute mix. Probably 14 years old.

He's a german shepherd/malamute mix. Probably 14 years old. He's been throwing up white foamy/kind of solid. This happened last Tuesday. He was taken to the vet and given an IV of fluids and kept inside at the vet clinic for a week. They also gave him antibiotics and nausea meds. Thought he had a heat stroke. It has been brutally hot here. Dog has always been outside in a 2 acre fenced in area with plenty of water and shade. Brought him home from vet yesterday and he's been staying in the back room of the house - keeping cool. Let out this morning while it was still cool outside and he started having the same symptoms he did when it all started. Throwing up and coming out his nose , mouth and panting heavily after no exertion. Cooled him off with the water hose and he stopped. Took him back in the house and he immediately laid down and went to sleep. Dog has no past problems - been very healthy until now. It is out in the country - not worried about being poisoned or getting into anything that would cause worry for that. Do not want him to suffer - he is use to being an outdoor dog and I'm afraid his quality of life will never be the same.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what the dog ate?Customer: He's not been eating hardly anything. Fed him a 1/2 can of pedigree canned food this morning before being let out.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: I'm worried about heart worms or some other condition that would require him to be penned up or kept inside. I work away from home all day and have no way of caring for him. I just happen to be on vacation this week. I can fix a place in the shed with a watercooler but I'm afraid that wouldn't be enough.

my puppy eats her dog bedding that is stuffed with foam. I have had her treated a month ago when she started passing string and a zipper from the bedding. She is still doing this and her sides are now poofy. Could this be from the bed stuffing and will it hurt her? She still poops, but no vomit.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your puppy eat anything unusual?Customer: just the dog bedding, plastic bottles, and her foam stuffed squeaky toysJA: What is the dog's name?Customer: SpriJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Spur?Customer: just concerned over the poofy sides as am concerned it may be full of the bedding

My dog is in heat first time. She keeps crying and licking

my dog is in heat for the first time. She keeps crying and licking her vagina and hind legs. She was doing this every ten minutes this morning. Now she is so tired from not sleeping and doing this all morning she passed out asleep. I called my vet on Friday about this issue and they said it was nothing to worry about. Then over the weekend it subsided, but now it is back. I was reading on the internet that is not normal. What should I do?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help My. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about My?Customer: We have an appointment to get her spayed on Friday. Should I be worried about her pain?JA: It's hard to know for sure. The Veterinarian will figure it out.Customer: They acted like it was no big deal when I called. Are you telling me to call again and insist on an appoinment?JA: No. I'm the Veterinarian's Assistant.Customer: Oh, I see. She is swollen around her vagina. I notice a bit of an order but not bad. It maybe from her licking so much. I can not tell. She eats and wants to play but cries out in pain and then has to reach for her back side and bite and lick
