    Can toxoplasmosis live on carpets, floors, clothes after cleaning?

    Hello there! My kittens pooped a while ago on some clothes and the floor, and I didn't notice until recently. I heard that toxoplasmosis is quite hardy, and I'm wondering what type of cleaning will kill the toxoplasmosis, if they had it. Thank you.
  • Cyst on Dog's Mouth

    My dog Nick had a small growth on his lip. It has now grown very large in size. The other day, he scratched it and it bled some. I was wondering if this type of growth is something that I can poke with a sterilized needle and drain or is it something that needs to be surgically removed? I had the vet take a look and they said they would need to put him under anesthesia, get a biopsy and then after looking at it they can tell me what it is. Then after that, they would have to put under anesthesia....

    Bullmastiff mommy worried about her boy

    Hello, I have a 9 yr old mastiff with a little pit mixed in him and he is extremely ill.

    Cat has tremors when she lies down

    My 1 year old cat has been having tremors periodically for about 2 weeks (or at least that's when I started noticing it). It started just a little bit in her hind legs, which I wasn't super concerned about but definitely kept an eye on. All of the sudden now it is throughout her whole body. Every time she lies down it happens, starting in her hind legs and moving to the rest of her body. Her muscles either contract and relax continuously or she just shakes, it almost looks as if it is in....

    My dog is afraid of going outside

    So a couple of weeks after the 4th of July, some idiot decided to blow up some of those professional grade aerial fireworks right next door to my house (so the noise was deafening)...well, when they were doing this, my dog was on his nightly walk -- since then my dog is PETRIFIED to go out in front of our house, like scrambling to get back to the door with all his puppy strength - which makes it near impossible to get him to go potty. Please help, my boyfriend is convinced he needs prescription medication....

    Cat is acting differently

    Have 2 cats and play together frequently. One morning, 1 cat jumped on other one and he is not fighting back. He is walking with his belly almost on the ground. When he stops, his rear legs move up and down like on a pillow. He turns over and rubs his back on the floor continuously. He is making sounds like there is something wrong. He eats and pottys but has done this action several times. He won't fight back when other cat tries to play. Should I take him to vet or is it in my head. There both....

    Dog tremors and twitching

    My 13 year old Australian Shepherd started having tremors and twitching in the morning. Always in the morning when laying on my bed after sleeping all night. They come in waves and are different degrees. Sometimes just hind legs. Sometimes while body. Sometimes her head jerks. She is awake always and glassy eyed. She also drools a little bit and opens and closes her mouth a lot. She isn't very responsive to me or treats when this is happening but she is conscious. They can last 2 minutes or 15....
