Both sentences are grammatically correct.
The first sentence doesn't tell the listener how many dogs you have; but the second sentence tells him that you've more than one dog.
So you can say either of these sentences.
If you want to say that you have two dogs, you could say:
"I took one of my two dogs to the vet."
