I made the mistake of giving my 11 yr old dog who is a Rhodesian ridgeback and 80 lbs half an ibuprofen as she seemed stiff and not moving well before looking online to realize it's not safe for dogs. With her size and her only taking half a pill do I need to call the vet?

He's been acting completely normal until the last 30

He's been acting completely normal until the last 30 minutes...it seems like he can't lay down. I gave them dinner at 530pm, he ate. Only thing different is that I did put his heartworm chewy in his dinner, but he's had them for several years and never had a reaction. I almost got him to lay down he sat and when he tried to put his front feet down he grunted and stood right back up quickJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?Customer: TuckerJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tucker?Customer: Not really--no vomiting or diarrhea. He's a 12yr border collie/bernese mtn dog mix

Well, Debbie we have a St. Bernard, Brady who is 11 years, 4

Well, Debbie we have a St. Bernard, Brady who is 11 years, 4 months old. Obviously very old for a large breed. We are getting to, or may be at that point that we are beginning to ask that hard question. He has a hard time getting up and down as you can imagine. He has spells when he does whine a lot, but we cant tell if it is more emotional or physical in nature. His appetite is good as he eats two meals a day. We don't want our baby to suffer, but also don't want to do anything prematurely.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?Customer: At this point getting him to the vet may be more painful and stressful for him. We know the root of his problem is old age. His vet gave us a heads up last summer that he is way past his expiration date. His name is*****: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Brady?Customer: In spite of having a good appetite he has definitely been losing weight. I would estimate in the last year he has lost 15-20 pounds.

This last Tuesday, our dog received a distemper booster. He

This last Tuesday, our dog received a distemper booster. He is 6 years old, so it's not a first time thing. He had had a very touchy stomach ever since we've had him & has been in grain free food since he was 1 year old. Our vet's office had an emergency & they were Kate getting to us - as a result, he was offeredd 2 treats while in the waiting room & 2 more while we were in the treatment room. I never gave it aNY thought, but I'm fairly sure the treats weren't grain free. He has had stomach distress since Wednesday, with a slightly bloody discharge in his stool off & on. Friday night, I was up at 5AM to take him out, where he had semi-diarrhea. Today, I have gone to a cooked chicken/rice feeding for blandness & am hoping to avoid a visit to the emergency vet until our vet opens tomorrow. Is there anything we can give him to help relieve any pain - he stretches up & down periodically & I'm pretty sure he's uncomfortable.JA: The Veterinarian's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: Only that he has expressed discomfort when he's had items (food/treats) that aren't gluten/grain free. Other than that, he is very healthy. How much is the fee?
