Getting dog to drink water when they are dehydrated.
I used to work at a vet. While there, I learned a few "home remedies" for some common pet ailments, including diarrhea.
We have two puppies, one Sheltie and one Pomeranian. Both were acquired on the same day. The Sheltie understands to do his business outside, but the Pomeranian just can't get it about peeing inside versus taking it outside. He has the pooping down.
Warning! For those who use a choke chain as a collar on their dogs, please don't. Take them off! Only use choke chains during training sessions, or if necessary, when walking on a leash.
How do I keep my dog's blanket on at night? She's 16, we get up 2 or 3 times at night to go outside, but I have to check on her every couple of hours at night because she also gets up to get a drink of water or nibble on her food.
Our new little MinPin mix. Any ideas what he might be mixed with? We think he is about 10 weeks old. We rescued him from a shelter in Mississippi.
I need help for kitten with broken leg. The owner cannot afford the 3600.00 quoted. Any ideas?
I had some outdoor cats that brought fleas in the house. My first response was to reach for the chemical sprays and get rid of them ASAP.
Sassy Jazz is a 21 year old APHA Solid Mare. We raised Jazz from a foal as we had her mother and dad. She runs on our 20 acres with her friends, a paint gelding and two donkeys that we adopted from the BLM.
Once a dog is cured from the parvo virus, does the dog still carry the parvo virus germ?
My Pomeranian has dry itchy skin. She just had blood tests run and everything was ok. The vet gave me some shampoo for her but I'm wondering if I should be adding some oil or something else to her diet to help also. She is 10 years old.
Has anyone ever heard of a wiener dog breeding with a Pitbull?
I would be interested in hearing any positive Parvo stories. We are experiencing Parvo in our home now. We have lost two 5 month old Pups, and have two older dogs still at the vet being treated. I am hoping for a positive outcome, but it gets harder with each day that passes. Any words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated.
My elderly dog was getting cold and shivery on her daily walk-abouts in the back yard. I looked at dog sweaters, but she's a good-sized dog and they were $30! I went to the Salvation Army store, picked up a kid's sized fleece zip-up vest.
My yorkie/poodle 10 yr old dog starting getting hot spots about a year ago. It is destroying his life, his skin, his fur and I don't know what to do. I have tried used tea bags, still working on that. Maybe it takes time.
My Shih Tzu is over 10 years old and has always been bright and full of life. Lately she is having some skin issues - hot and red on her belly and back legs. She licks and is now not feeling very well. I did change her food, but to no avail. I know she is allergic to gluten, but I also went no yeast as well. I really want to make my own food for her, but would like some guidance please. If anyone can help, please let me know!
My cat is 2 years and 5 months old. Lately she's been pulling out all of the hair at her lower back and the bottom half of her tail. She had a beautiful coat, but now that whole section looks bare. It's not just falling out because I have seen her just tear it of in the middle of cleaning herself.
I have a two year old Bullmastiff and he is afraid to go down the stairs. He goes up just fine, but going down is a struggle. What should I do to make it eaiser on both him and me?
My cat had a collar on for about 2 months, but ripped it off. Now he has scratch marks all over his neck! He also has a really bad scratch on his face and is always scratching at it. I have another cat and they're not the best of friends, so I don't know whether it's related to that (stress) or something else.
Lily is three years old. She is a mixed breed. On a very hot August afternoon, my mother asked me to come to her house. Five tiny kittens were on her patio.
Over the years, we have been blessed with many dogs that have achieved old age. As they did, their vision was often compromised because of cataracts or macular degeneration.
I'm looking for some advice. I just found out that I'm pregnant, and we have a cat (Destiny). My hubby thinks we need to get rid of the cat, but I can't. She's another baby, if you know what I mean. I love my cat, but do cats and newborns get along?
I have a 7 month old Pit Bull. She keeps play biting my 14yr old daughter. I have tried everything to stop her but she won't stop. My daughter is the only person she does this to.
My dog had a yeast infection in her skin and throat (vet's diagnosis). I don't know exactly the yeast's species name. Her skin was itching and her hair shed. In some places, skin was scaled off and she felt very itching here. Her elbows had no hair. Some lumpy and scaled off spots emerged there.
My 4 or 5 week old pitbull will not eat. I have to force feed babby milk and it won't touch dog food. What should I do?
I am experiencing the same problems as most of you have discussed regarding dog mess in my yard. The neighbors have no respect for other peoples property and every time we do improvements to our yard or home some type of vandalism occurs. Whether it is smearing dog poop on the patio, deck , tie walls, benches, in the flower beds and on top of one particular plant.
