My 12 year old Golden Lab has been very itchy over her whole

My 12 year old Golden Lab has been very itchy over her whole back end. She is also constantly checking to see if see has leaked any kind of waste. My neighbor suggested a tablespoon of vegetable oil in each of her meals to help with the itchy skin. Do you think that will help? What do all these symptoms indicate? Should I visit my veterinarian with her?

I had read the health benefits of feeding my puppy some raw

I had read the health benefits of feeding my puppy some raw fruits or vegetables aside from just puppy chow and kibble, I of course looked into which fruits were best and which to avoid, Grapes being the number one avoidance across the board, but cherries was a mixed in results. In the past 2 days I have given as a small meal enhancer our 7 month Chihuahua/York Terrier 4 cherries sliced very very thinly not even getting down too much to the pit, and discarding the stem and pit. She also tried an organically grown, bell pepper from my dad's garden where I cut it into strips and then each strip into about 5 to 7 squares (she had that twice). I have now read more up on cherries and the toxicity of cyanide that are in cherries and am so so worried now that I may have already inadvertently dangered our puppy even while all signs show she is doing fine on the outside, I am worried. Please help.

I think two of my dogs ate the whole bottle (60) soft chews

I think two of my dogs ate the whole bottle (60) soft chews of a hip and joint supplement. It contains: calcium phosphate, corn starch, dried molasses, glycerin, magnesium stearate, natural anti oxidants, macrogol, porcine liver powder, sucrose, vegetable fiber, vegetable shortening. I THINK it was within the last 1-2 hours. One dog is a 40# ***** other is a120# ***** Dane. It's been about 30 minutes but no vomiting. What should I do?

Thank you for the service you are providing. I have two

Hello and thank you for the service you are providing. I have two British cream Golden retrievers. Bella is nine and has little to no allergies. Our younger girl Holly is two and she has been biting at her paws and toes incessantly. They are red and look awful. Our vet put her on a Prednisolone ( or equivalent ) and it made her hungry, not sleep and NOT solve her itchy paw problems. I have read that soaking in iodine may help which I have tried and still do. We avoid all chicken, beef and corn in her diet. It is all expensive limited ingredient food ( $50 / week! For the two of them ) which is fish based or vegetable upon guidance from the vet. Any ideas here?
