    Dog Leaps down flights of stairs

    Hi my dog is 2 yrs old and always jumps down 6-7 steps in one bound. I am afraid he is setting himself up for bad hips in the future. How can I get him to stop . I do not want to put a gate up. Any suggestions?

    Dog swallowing and licking floor...what's going on?

    I have a two-year-old border collie. I just took her to the vet last week for her yearly exam and shot and she got a clean bill of health. Yesterday she woke us up in the middle of the night. She was what I can only describe as double swallowing. Almost like she had hiccups. She would cough and then lick her lips a lot. She would then start obsessively licking the comforter and then the floor when we got her off the bed. We thought that something may be stuck in her throat so we opened up her mouth....

    6-7 Wk kitten, two aussies and fleas

    I brought home a very young rescue yesterday and combing today found fleas which I figured. The kitten slept with my aussies last night and an hour today. I haven’t found anything on them today. If I treat them with the liquid in shoulder blades isn’t that dangerous for the kitten? Other than a few minutes on the carpet the kitty has been on tile and my bed ( of course) with the dogs. Do I wait and see if the dogs get anything? Will vacuum be enough if I keep kitty off it. I will wash bedding. But....

    Why is my dog's poop green?

    I noticed today that my dog's poop is a green color. It's basically the same consistency as always. He has been eating normally and his activity level hasn't changed. What could be causing this? Could it be something that he ate?

    My dog acted strange for a week after dental surgery

    I have taken my dog before multiple times for dental surgery and he usually returned back to his normal self within 48 hours. This time was different. For a week he was disengaged, he didn’t get out of bed unless I picked him up to eat or go to the bathroom otherwise he slept constantly and the first day he peed and slept on it never moving and when he tried to get up he kept rocking and couldn’t stand up. That lasted over 12 hours. I gave him food and he ate it laying down. When I would pick him....

    Dog refusing to toilet after dark

    My 1 year old King Charles, has started behaving oddly since the clocks went back. She is fully toilet trained and never goes in the house. However for the past week, she is refusing to do a number 2 when on her evening walk around 7-8pm. She will pee, but not number 2. We spent 2 hours walking her around one evening and nothing. This is made worse by the fact she is now doing it during the night, in the house. Her food schedule has not changed and we have never had this issue before, her previously....

    Why is my dog's belly skin turning from pink to black?

    The skin on my dog's stomach recently started turning from a light pink color to black. I took her to the vet and he diagnosed her with a hypothyroid condition. He gave me some meds for her to take. Now the same thing is happening to one of my other dogs. It seams weird to me that two of my dogs would get hypothyroid at almost the same time. They are not from the same litter and aren't the same age (one is 2 and ther other is 7). What else could do this?

    The sponsored by Purina dog food myths article

    I'm in shock to read an article put out by web md that is really an ad for Purina, which is probably the worst brand. They must spend all their money on advertizing and nothing on research and improving the quality of their products. Almost all corn is GMO & they aren't going to put the rare non gmo corn in dog food. That article is defending the ingredients that case cancer in dogs. Dogs do not need grains naturally & dog cancer books all say it is the biggest contributor to them....
