My 1 year old cat occasionally will pee in random places like on the couch, on a bed, on a rug, or on the carpet. He still does poop and pee in the litter box.

I have a standard size Dachshund and a Chi- Winnie. The Dachshund is always licking his paws, they both shed a lot, so would fish oil help with these issues and if so how much do I give and how often? The Dachshund's weight is 21 and the Chi-Winnie 14.
Our cat had 6 kittens 5 days ago and their eyes aren't even open yet, but one of them has a swollen eye with some discharge, the cheek below that eye is a little swollen too. Should I take him to the vet or will warm water and neosporin be enough treatment for now?

I have a five year old Shih Tzu. We recently had a pretty large thunderstorm, and my dog is terrified of thunder. However, the noises aren't what bothers him, it is the vibration of the ground.

We have an 11 yr. old male Maltese who keeps developing ear infections. The vet bills are expensive, and since we are on a fixed income we have to look for alternative ways of treating his infections. In the past the vet has given him Otibiotic Ointment. Can anyone offer a possible alternative?

I am house training a dog without using a crate. I have a 8 month old rescue Jack Russell, she is a rescue dog. I have had her a month now. I have to work 7 hours a day during which time I leave her in the front room with a stair gate. She goes out for the toilet before I leave.

I have a Border Collier mix dog - Danny. He is an indoor/outdoor farm dog. I need to brush him a lot in the spring while he sheds and then throughout the year for pleasure.
