My rottie/lab mix, Zorro (15 1/2), is already dealing with degenerative myelopathy (the canine equivalent of ALS).

Twice today, I was sitting near him, reading, and heard him licking the rug (which he does, rather neurotically).  There was a rather large blood stain on it (maybe 2-3 tablespoons).  I looked in his nose and mouth, and checked his ears, eyes, penis and anus.  No sign of blood anywhere.

I checked all paws and legs.  Nothing.  I felt all over his body-- no sign of any blood.

About 2 hours later, it happened again.  I checked again.  Still nothing.

So this has me stumped.  It doesn't seem to be an emergency so I won't call my vet on a holiday weekend (Canada Day).  I'll check with her on Tuesday.

In the meantime, I'm just wondering if anyone has ever had such an experience and if you found out the source.

I'm thinking it has to be his nose, but a Q-tip inserted soon after the episode should have had some blood on it; it didn't.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I have a question regarding dog breeds. I have recently looked at a puppy half maltese and have pomperian. I know the maletese is a hypoallergenic dog and the pom is not. Does anybody know if this would create a problem with allergies? My kids have never been told that they are allergic to dogs only cats but the doctor has recommended if we get a dog it needs to have hair. Please advice!

Not sure

Hi

My chihuahua Gizmo has fallin in love with our Jack Russell Amber,

He gets very upset, confused, and cross, he snaps everyone while protecting her, has very bad seperation anxity.

He seems to go through phases of this, hes a fine happy dog and the he starts again, and distresses himself.

He seems to be doing this more and more and for longer spells of time.

Iam worried because he gets so upset, he drives Amber mental and Amber is a lot older than him and Im worried what would happen if anything happend to her.

If I seperate them he gets so distressed

Any one got any ideas I would be delighted

Raffy my chihuahua puppy ATE YELLOW PAINT !

I was painting with yellow paint outside, and somehow my 4 month old chihuahua puppy (male) got outside and when I turned around he just took one massive lick at the blob of yellow paint, WHAT DO I DO? Humans themselves shouldn't eat paint.
Inside his mouth was yellow until he swallowed it. I managed to rinse his mouth out with water though. He seems fine, after all its only been 10 minutes since his encounter with paint. Should I do something? Anything I should be aware of? Can he still eat and drink? PLEASE HELP!
-Thanks SO much guys, paws up.

It's just like a extra toe for my puppy, it's just and ecsessive, extra, unneeded part of his body? Why though? I got him from a pet store, he had lived in a cage for the first three months of his life until I fell in love with him. The cage was so small he hasn't ran around AT ALL in his life and he had NEVER seen, touched or felt grass. he was taught to pee where he was standing and poop where he was standing. He was bad at avoiding corners, obstacles and walls as he had NO experience of what it was like to walk normal and naturally like any other dog would. The toe hasn't effected him at all. But will he be harmed by it later on in life? Do you think I should get it removed or not? See a vet, or leave it? Its really useless, luckily hasn't harmed my puppy.

I have a registered bluenose pitbull. I was wondering why this dog has a well defined ridgeback. Both of the parents and all the grandparents of this dog are registered and they do not have a ridgeback. Why he got the ridgeback???
