    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....

    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....
