Cat Licking Himself Raw From Flea Allergy

I haven't moved, I haven't changed any of the 3 cats' diets. I live on Long Island. My vet said they are allergic to the flea's saliva. He gave me pills, but it didn't help. My one cat is licking himself raw. Is there a home remedy I can use to put on them?

Cat Peeing Everywhere Since Getting New Kitten

My grandma has a cat that she has had for years. She's fixed and is also an outside cat. Recently I adopted a kitten for my daughters. It was going all right at first; my grandma's cat would just hiss at my kitten and just avoid her when they are both inside. I thought we were doing things right, but now my grandma's cat is peeing everywhere upstairs, on couches, floors, clothes, everything. I don't know what to do. Any advice please?

Removing Mats from a Dog's Fur

I have a Sable Collie and she has very soft hair. The problem I have is that her hair is matted up. The reason is that I didn't get her brushed out last fall. I was ill and just couldn't do it. Now I have tried this whole year to get it under control, but it's gotten ahead of me. Should I cut all of her hair off and let it grown back?

Dog Shedding

Dr. Watson is 5, he's been shedding for about 2 years. I brush and brush and always get tons of hair, it never stops. He eats turkey necks, chicken gizzards, and I put a small amount of coconut oil on his Science Diet dog food. I feed him twice a day, about 3/4 cup at a time. He is a little over weight, but at least I know what he is eating. The vet said these dogs shed normally, I'm not buying this.
