Q. My dog has had another dog with him for 9 years now. Last week the dogs were split up. Spots are bleeding,ect. Should he have play dates w the other

A. Yes that would be a good idea. Dogs do form bonds with each other the same as humans and they can become depressed if split up from a long term companion.
