Floyd, my male dog bullmastif, has excessive thirst, itching and scratching, and loss of skin
Hi. He could have picked up a skin irritation. If he was stressed in kennels. This could account for the facial skin inflammation if he was rubbing his face along the bars and too stressed to drink adequately there so is feeling better at home and drinking. However with skin, it can become very complicated very quickly so a visit to the vet is warranted to see what's happening. If he has picked up a skin parasite e.g. demodex, a burrowing mite, that causes alopecia, then it needs treatment immediately.

Hi, glad I could help. It sounds as though Floyd suffers with separation anxiety. This unfortunately is not a quick fix and will take some time and perseverance from you and others in the household to help him with. Start with anti anxiety remedies, I highly recommend adaptil diffuser in the area he is most and leave it on full power for about a week. Then you need to start leaving him for short periods of time. Gradually getting longer, until he understands that he will not be left and you will be coming back. If you are able to ask advice from a behaviourist that's will also be very helpful. Good look

Misha, my female dog samoyed, has excessive thirst and eye discharge
Hi. I can't tell for sure that it's nothing from a picture but it doesn't look serious. Joung dogs change a little bit in colour and they might get spots where they didn't use to have them as puppys... If you want to be 100% sure, take Misha to a vet. Dogs can get cancer from passive smoking, but it's usually lung cancer, and they aren't 1 year old. Ask your sister to smoke outside or away from the dog (or help her quit if possible, that's better for her too :) ). Ask again if you need something else... Kind regards.
