Sophie, normally a very active little Papillon, presented to us a few weeks ago because she wasn't feeling well.  Her owner said that Sophie seemed to have been fighting a "bug" for the last few weeks.  She had been having diarrhea on and off and had vomited the day before she came to see us.

Thomas had gotten himself into trouble the evening before he presented to us.  He was a one-year-old domestic shorthair cat, and he had apparently been in a fight with another animal outside.  He had fared OK — with one exception; his tail had sustained a degloving injury.

Gus is a very sweet 10-year-old terrier mix.  He presented for an exam a little over a year ago after his owner noticed that his haircoat was becoming thin.  On further questioning, his owner also said that Gus had been drinking more water and had a ravenous appetite.  He tended to pant excessively and was somewhat more lethargic.

We've lost two wonderful canine patients at Westside over the past few months to the same disease. Tesse was a sweet Lab mix, and Mayzee was a wonderful Beagle mix. Both presented for somewhat similar symptoms, and both were ultimately diagnosed with the same serious illness.

Nippy is a sweet 11-year-old spayed female Cocker Spaniel, and she presented to us recently after her owner noticed spots of blood on the floor. She appeared to be in good health overall, but the source of the blood was a bleeding mass on her belly.
