Dog Was Exposed to Parvo Won't Gain Weight

I recently found out that the dog I adopted about 2 months ago was exposed to parvo as a puppy and the owner never took him into the vet to get any vaccinations. He was extremely skinny when I got him and I just thought that he was underfed by his previous owners so I've been trying everything I can to have him put on some weight.

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?

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.
