My 4yr old, male, Red-nose
/AmStaff Pitbull won't eat his dry dog food. I've changed brands & flavors & he still won't eat it. He eats wet dog food & people food like he's starving. He looks like he's lost weight & now his breath smells like death
. He hasn't eaten a dead animal, although he will kill & eat one but hasn't recently. His gums are black so I can't see if they're reddened. They look a little puffy towards the back of the mouth only. I've heard him yelp 2 times before when eating something hard but thought maybe he bit his tongue. He sleeps a lot lately & feels feverish for about an hour most nights. He's not neutered yet. Has developed 2 very small dark colored mole like growths
on his skin (shoulder & upper back) they appeared outta now where, grew for a couple weeks from baby tick size to almost pea sized but hen seemed to stop growing all together. He doesn't like it when I touch them. Can I wait a couple weeks till Oct 1st to take him to the vet or should I rush him in now? What is wrong with him? I know Pits are prone to cancers could it be that?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: I think that's everything oh he's been very fast past week & stomach
sounds like he needs to poop but he doesn't run outside like he's gotta go. He poops in morning & night but the other day it was like diarrhea almost & a light green/gray color
JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.
Customer: Gassy not fast
