    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?

    News: Is It OK to Let Your Dog Sleep in Your Bed?

    I confess that I let my dog sleep in the bed at night...but according to a new study from the Mayo Clinic: "Your sleep may be more compromised if your dog is in your bed, though this is not the case if Fido is simply in your bedroom." You can learn more here: http://wb.md/2wZcQXO Does your dog sleep in your bed with you? And if so, is this research enough to send him (or her) packing?

    GSD Lethargic and barely eating.

    I just started noticing these symptoms the other day. My GSD (1 year old) is turning his nose to a lot of things he'd normally eat in a heartbeat and is keeps wanting to go outside but all he's doing is laying down out there. He is drinking water (not too much) his stool is solid and looks okay. As far as vomit is concerned he has only vomited once and I think it was from the grass he was eating but I'm not completely certain(We don't put fertilizer on our lawn if that helps). His....
