    Renal failure in cats

    Is bloody urine (or blood instead of urine) a sign of renal failure in an 18-year old cat? This started Saturday night. She has been hyperthyroid twice and even with treatment it reoccurred. She is also vomiting a lot, straining to poop and having a lot of diarrhea. I think it is time to do the humane thing but my heart won't let me. She has bounced back from bad things before over the last three or four years so maybe I think we're jumping the gun? I called the in-home vets for Friday but....

    Bleeding from anus

    I have an 11 year old lab boxer mix. For the past month he's had some bleeding from his anus. Sometimes it'll drip out while he's laying on his side or if he rubs against something it will transfer. Often it smells like his anal sac secretion. He's not scooting, and rarely has difficulty going poop and usually there is no blood in his stool. Our vet can't seem to make heads or tails of his symptoms. Anyone ever have these issues? He also sometimes will have a "talking"....

    dog feet

    My 8 year-old golden retriever started obsessively licking his paws about two months ago. I took him to the vet, who gave me some foot soaking stuff, antibiotics and pain meds. The foot licking got better, but never went away. Now he is obsessively licking his right from paw. I got a look at it, and it is gross! He has literally licked the black off of his main paw pad - it is pick and raw - not bloody, but that is probably because of the licking. Last vet visit cost $500 and didn't solve the....
  • Dropped off puppy we're keeping.

    A dog was dropped off at our house. She is around 6 months. We've decided to keep her since no one claimed her on the lost dog things we've done. She's a mix, we're thinking Rot, German Shepard, and Lab (mostly lab, only coloring of a Rot), and hair of a lab. I'm assuming no shots or anything because I don't believe she was taken care of. She came to us skin and bones and a little jumpy at first. She's a great dog. But I'm not sure what shots she needs, I worked at....
