My Jack Russell/Border Collie cross is 16 months old and was fully house trained up until 8 weeks ago. He has started pooping in the house again and it's not that he's not getting outside to go because we let him out nearly every 2 hours.
When will the ASPCA truck come to Petland in Springfield Gardens, New York?
We got Harly a few months ago. His owner could not keep him because of a move. We have tried everything to put weight on him. He is papered. His hair seems to be very dry and he has dandruff. He is a house dog and we have 2 acres for him to run in. He chews everything.
Our female Corgi has a fit when we are leaving the house. She does it with anyone who's leaving the house. She runs around in circles barking. Is it an instinct of her breed for herding? How do we stop it? It is very annoying.
Why does my Bassett Hound keep licking the middle if his paw all the time?
I have had my dog for 13 years and he started having fits around 6 months ago. He has had two this week, my vet thinks he has a lesion on his brain and has forgotten all the behavouirs he has learnt. He is weeing and pooing in the house all the time.
I have a two year old Boston Terrier. He has not eaten anything in two days except 1 small piece of tripe, he is drinking well. I have offered a variety of foods and he is not intrested. No vomiting or loose stool.
My husband has a one year old Shepherd that was never fully house trained. She poops up and down our hallway all the time. Never when we are home or awake. I walk her and let her run several times a day.
I have a 5 year old Rhodie and for the last 3 years or so, he doesn't want to eat. We used to have to portion him as a pup because he wanted to eat everything all the time, but somewhere around 2, he decided that he didn't want to eat anymore.
My Pit Bull puppy is exactly 3 months old. I take her out every hour and she pees and poops, but then five minutes after we come back in she pees and poops in the house. How do I stop this?
We just lost our cat a few days ago and now our miniature Schnauzer won't eat dry dog food.
My 3 month old puppy has been with us for about 2 1/2 weeks and she only has accidents when we are home. We are vigilant on letting her out every 1-2 hours. However many times she pees at the door or she will sneak into the other room to relieve herself.
I have a blind 3.5 month old kitten my boyfriend and I adopted about a month ago. For whatever reason, she will not use the litter box. She knows where it is and only ever goes to the bathroom right next to it, but refuses to actually get into the litter box on her own.
My baby finches are between 2 - 3 weeks old. The mom and dad are constantly sitting on them and I'm afraid they are smothering them or stiffling their growth. Is this normal? It is a small enclosed nest.
How can I stop my puppy from pooing or weeing on the floor or his bed? He is on pads and newspaper, but he does not go on it. We just got him today and he weed once on the pads. He is only 12 weeks old and he is a Cockerpoo.
I had a puppy who died from parvo (the whole litter came down with it) After coming to terms and wanting a companion I got another puppy who had survived it from the same litter. Just earlier today he threw up that clear foamy liquid that occurs with parvo.
She's a 3 year old that weighs 48 lbs with sort of a black and tan coloring. Occasionally she looks sort of a charcoal color instead of black. Her fur feels like velvet, she has a curled up tail most of the time. As she's gotten older, she has a pretty thick and muscular stature. At the dog park she tends to herd other dogs by chasing them and nipping at their rear ends some times.
My dog won't nurse her almost 4 week old puppies unless I make her and I have to lay down next to her and pet her during the process. This all started about a week ago when my parents came to visit and brought their dog with them.
My 6 month old puppy has had blood in his runny stool after 5-6 times eating some pan fried pork with his dry food (not sure if related). Because he is as playful and energetic as ever, I'm not worried that he is seriously sick. Also I'm not worried about Parvo as he has been vaccinated for it.
My toy Poodle won't eat for about 24 hours after New Year's Eve. What should I do?
I just got a dog from a very nice couple. They said he was house broken and I have taken him out and walked him, but he comes in and within the hour he pees in the house. Is this because he is not used to the house and his new surroundings or should I be worried.
We adopted a 2 year old female 5 weeks ago. We are doing crate training and, for the most part, it's going well. She does not pee or soil in her crate, and is wonderful about doing these when we take her outside. However, when we take her out of the crate inside for short periods of time she often pees on the floor.
We have a 3 year old neutered male Siamese cat. We recently adopted a 3 month old female orange tabby. Well the problem is that the older cat keeps forcing himself on the kitten and trying to have his way with her. What causes this behavior and how can we stop it? Also does this hurt the kitten?
My 1yr old Chiweenie won't eat much since we got a puppy 2wks ago.
I have a 6 week old pup named Buddy. He eats once a day; is this normal? Should he be fed before bedtime?
So I will have had Lyra for two years on June 2015 and since the house is empty because I work a lot and so does my husband and the kids are usually busy I thought it would be a good idea to get another kitty. We did get one in November and now it's almost January and the two don't get along at all.
What mouthwash do you use on the wooden parts of your furniture to stop cats from using it as a liter box?
I can't afford a vet at this time. I need to know where I can take my dog. She hasn't eaten for 3 days and she can't poop either. Please help me find a vet that won't charge me a lot.
My 3 month old puppy has worms. I gave her some Pro Sense. Should I take her to the vet?
My dog wets herself all the time day or night asleep or awake. She is always drinking water. It's driving me mad. I'm changing her bed 2 to 3 times a day. She's 4 years old.
My dog hasn't eaten for two days. She's really skinny with ribs showing. I tried feeding her dog food and human food, but she does not want to eat. She only drank a little water and I can't afford a vet.
I have a 5 year old Labrador and a rescue dog believed to be 9 (who we have had for a year now). Two days ago the Labrador was sick three times during the day and night, the day after he wasn't sick and he ate some food in the morning, but in the evening he refused to eat which was very unusual for him.
I need a low cost vet. My dog needs X-rays, but I can't afford much. I love my dog and don't want to cheap out, but I just can't afford hundred dollar X-rays plus additional expenses for whatever might be wrong
My dog has fly bites in its ears. How can I encourage new hair growth on the ear tips?
I adopted a one year old male Yorkie. The other problem he has had since birth is that he is missing hair in spots. He itches quite a bit and the hair he does have is short. It looks like he had been shaved, but he hasn't. Any advice? Can they be born with a thyroid problem?
I have a special needs kitten who we named TommyLynn. She will not use the litter box, even if it's fresh litter. Can someone help me? She will pee and poop on our clothes, paper, and plastic bags. Basically anything sitting in our floor.
My French Bulldog came from a pet store and we are the 3rd owner. He is 2 years old and seems to enjoy sleeping in his urine. He will pee on any bedding we give him, he also destroyed our couch with urine and has peed on my pillow recently.
My sister's 2 beagles have a doggy door right next to my niece's play area, but they insist on peeing on the rugs she buys to put down in the area. This will be her 3rd rug from Home Depot. It is always light colored carpet. I read somewhere they like light colors?
My dog gets attacks of sudden itching around the rump and stomach. There are no fleas, etc., but I've noticed that when he gets these periods of itching he also shakes his head as if his ears are bothering him and there's nothing to see there either, no redness.
We just got a Shih Tzu dog from a friend because they don't want him anymore and he was living in bad conditions as they were always busy with their work. I just want to know if it is too late to train him now? He is 2 years old and bites. He bit me and my mom once.
My best friend died of parvo. He would have been a year old on Thanksgiving. I miss him so much now. My wife wants to get another dog from a shelter that is at least 3 years old. Do you think it's OK to bring one home? It has only been a month and two weeks since my Chico died of parvo.
I got a 4 month old Japanese Spitz. After 2 days we took her to get a bath. Then after I got home from work she started not eating. Does noise affect their eating?
We have 3 dogs. 2 are rare hunting dogs and one of them has started to lose weight. He is eating and drinking fine, but his stool is soft. This happened to him during the summer and I took him to the vet who ran a bunch of tests. Everything came back normal.
I just got a Guinea pig, my first one ever. I have noticed that he likes to stay in one corner of his cage, he also uses the bathroom in this same corner, is this normal? I'm worried he's going to get sick from being in his own waste?
I have just gotten a Collie cross with a Labrador puppy. She is very fun and gentle, but recently when she has taken on one occassion a sock and other something in the garden, when I tried to retrieve same she growled and snapped at me and even jumped at me.
I use spring-type clothes pins to clip treats to the bars of my bird's cage like millet sprays, snow peas, romaine lettuce and omelet. They make a sturdy, cheap holder, easy to fill and can be positioned anywhere.
This is Bruce! We've had him since he was 6 weeks old. His mother looked purebred Lab to me, but it is possible she was a mix. We will never know for sure who the father is, but we believe he had to have at least some German Shorthaired Pointer if not pure breed. My husband says he sees either Pit Bull or Boxer in him, but I personally don't see it. When we took him in at 7 weeks to the vet he weighed 11 pounds.
How long can my puppy go without eating? I have been giving him Pedialyte every 30 minutes and antiobiotics twice daily. It is the 3rd day now and he is showing signs of blood in his stool; is this a fatal sign?
