  • Can a cat with a neurological disorder be given cat nip

    I am looking to adopt an 8 month old kitten with a neurological disorder and was wondering if I could give him catnip or toys with catnip in it to play with. I guess you can say it’s the new mommy jitters that is making me worried since this is my first special needs cat and I want to make him as comfortable and happy as possible.

    Can’t get well

    We brought our beautiful, peppy, rambunctious Pepé home in November of 2017. The lady we bought him from said all puppy shots were up to date and had one left to have. When I took him to the vet they gave him all the puppy shots over again as if they didn’t believe she did. I kept telling them he already had them but they just kept ignoring me. After each puppy shot it took them three weeks to bounce back to be his old peppy self. He Had a rabies shot about a week and a half ago and after four days....

    Is my pitbull growing an extra finger....?

    Hello! Was giving my pitbull/boxer mix a bath today and noticed this strange growth next to her dewclaw. She's about 8 years old. I scheduled a vet vist for her, but was hoping osmeone could shed some light. This is my mother's dog, and she said the growth appeared a couple weeks ago, but she thought it was a blister and thought nothing of it. Has anyone seen anything like it?

    Going in house

    I have a half miniature terrier happened your poodle mix. He’s about four years old. He potty trained really well and have not had trouble with that ever since he’s been potty trained.

    I lost my precious Boo

    He had pancreatitis that lead to cancer. He was 8 yr male, all black, medium hair and prettiest yellow eyes I ever saw. His last weight was 12, a yr ago he was 16 lbs. He was the one to eat dry food and water . He lost his appetite slowly. He would hide in my bedroom closet every day. I had to pick him up to join with me and with my other male cat, Tiger. I put him on the couch next to me. He would nibble some dry food just it. He did drink water. That appetite loss lead me to call my vet. Her assistant....

    senior cat and urinary crystals

    Sammy, my 12-yr-old cat, spent two days at the vet due to urinary crystals -- the first time for him. He was prescribed Hill's® Prescription Diet® c/d® Multicare and I've been feeding him both dry and canned. I have two 4.5 yr old cats whom I also feed the same because it's easier not to have to give them different food. They all like the food rather well. But, maybe 2 or 3 times a week, Sammy throws up his food soon after eating -- more when he eats the canned than the dry. When he throws....

    Post-Death Behavioral Changes

    I recently lost one of my two dogs. He was 13 1/2 and my remaining dog just turned 8. They weren't overly friendly with each other but they co-existed without fighting etc. Gunny died at home. During his passing Marley would go up an sniff him a couple of times. She even barked at him one time. The next day I noticed Marley seemed much more relaxed. She didn't scarf down her breakfast like it was her last meal. She took a couple of bites and then finished it off later that night. She's....
