Strange lump on american bulldog's right elbow
I have a 15 month old american bulldog. Shes very sweet. About a week ago I noticed a small bump starting to form on her right elbow. I figured it was just a bug bite. I took a couple pictures of it and then forgot about it for a week. After checking up on it recently, it looks like it has gotten a larger. Half of it is starting to scab. The lump feels fairly stiff. It doesnt feel like its filled with fluid or anything. I'm struggling financially right now and I would love to save around 100 bucks by not taking her to the vet to have them give me some 50 cent cream and want to see her back in a few months. (which similar situations happened to me before) So, i'm hoping someone could take a look at these pictures and hopefully give me some advice. If a vet visit should be made ASAP, then I have no problem doing that.
puppy whines, wimpers, barks when out walking
I am getting super frustrated with my new puppy! She is about 6 months old and I got her from an Humane Society. She is some sort of australian shepherd mix. When I try to take her outside to walk and go to the bathroom, as soon as she sees another human or dog she starts going nuts! She cries, barks and wimpers and wags her tail like a lunatic. I can't get her to calm down. Even if I pick her up she wiggles out of control and continues her ranting. Is she scared? When the person gets closer she tries to get to them so they will pet her and jumps up on them. What do I do to break this habit? She sounds like she's in pain when she does this(though she's not) and people look at me like I'm a horrible dog owner but I don't know what to do to fix this!Any advice would be much appreciated!I've tried the water squirt in the face and that only deters her for a second and she starts it up again.
I would like to know if it's ok to feed little dogs poeple food?
unknown origin of bleeding
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 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!
Help, my dogs in love!
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
HELP chihuahua puppy ate YELLOW PAINT
Raffy my chihuahua puppy ATE YELLOW PAINT !
My chihuahua has 5 toes on one of his paws?!!!
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.
my friend accidentally stepped on his puppy he was coughing up blood but that has stopped. He is now starting to walk around.They don't have a way to a vet they live in the middle of no where and thier car is broke down. What advise should i give him
