    Help with skin condition! Local vets can't figure it out :(

    Misha is a 10-year-old Shih Tzu. About a year ago she started scratching more than usual and losing her hair. Many local vets have tried to help her. They've done lab tests and discarded scabies. All of them think this is some sort of allergy. They've given her meds like Itraconazole and Loratadine. However nothing has worked and she's only getting worse. Lately, she's been rapidly losing her hair and developing black patches over the affected areas as you can see in the attached....

    Puppy Query

    We're looking after a 6 month old pup (1/2 golden retriever / 1/2 shepherd mix), she is quite lean. Our concern is she can't seem to get enough to eat & by that I mean she is getting 4 cups of food a day (she gets that at home as well) but she's isn't gaining any weight nor does it seem to fill her up. Further to our concern is that when we go to let her out in the morning, she'd rather go and eat first than go outside for her morning pee. We find this behaviour odd and haven't....

    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....

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....

    I think my dog might have an ear infection?

    I'm not sure if he actually has an ear infection, or just a buildup of earwax that's irritating him. His ear seems kind of dry and he continuously is shaking his head trying to loosen something. Every now and then I'll find milky yellow ear wax coming out(?) Please help me decipher what's going on!
