Missy, female, 11 yrs old has nasal discharge, coughing,

Missy, female, 11 yrs old has nasal discharge, coughing, wheezing, no fever, eats well, bowel movements are normal and makes a weird sound like gaging to clear throat. She has vomited 3 times within a month. I just took her off vegetable broth after doing some research that onions/other ingredients could cause hemolytic anemia effecting blood cells,not sure what that means. I know that it is difficult to diagnose without seeing my dog; just want to know is this is serious enough to take her to see a veterinarian?

My dog is being treated . He is on butorphanol (sp?)

My dog is being treated for IVDD. He is on butorphanol (sp?) prednisone, gabapentin. He started the treatment on 5/25. He took his last 1/2 dose of steroid yesterday per vet instructions. Also he is on bactryil (sp) for a uti started on 6/1. Tonight he is constipated, seems bloated, retaining water. My vet said to put a little vegetable oil in his food. I did that no poop yet. It has been about 6 hours. Just a bit ago I noticed some new bruises on his stomach to the right of his penis. Idk if I should take him to the ER vet or if it can wait till my vet opens tomorrow morning. He had this happen last weekend and took him to ER vet and he pooped a lot finally but he didn't have the bruising.

My 13 year old chow/lab mix recently was ill with

My 13 year old chow/lab mix recently was ill with anaplasmosis, but has been on doxycycline for 2 weeks, and seemed fine until today. Last night he got into my briefcase and ate a clif bar. last night and today was vomiting (not unusual when he eats something he shouldn't). The clif bar has chocolate, but not so much that I would normally be scared, as he weighs 70 lbs.However, this morning, he is unstable on his feet, can barely walk, and sometimes falls over when he tries to stand. He walks like he almost cant feel his legs, or they are just giving out on him. sometimes he will lean against a wall. He does not appear to be in any physical discomfort when I manipulate his joints. If I pinch his hind leg, he will ignore me at first but then retract it.
