    Toxic air from cat poop?

    My roommate keeps her cat's poop in a special box/trashcan next to the litter box in our bathroom. The smell gets so bad that it stings my nose and eyes. She doesn't empty the box of poop until it is full, which can be over a month or even two. The odor often carries over to my room since it is across the hallway from the bathroom. Should I be concerned about the ammonia and other toxic particles being released into the air?

    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....

    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....

    My dog ate a Cornish game hen

    My dog ate a Cornish game hen , bones and all. He is not choking in the sense that his airway is blocked but every 15-20 minutes he coughs or gags like he is trying to spit something out of his throat. I am worried about bone spurs being lodged in his throat, them causing his throat to swell and close when he is sleeping. Am I being overly concerned and he will just cough them up or should I be very concerned????

    Cat getting bald spot

    I have a female cat who is about 20-years old. She's in good health, has all her shots, etc. and was at the vet a couple of months ago. Lately, she's been losing fur on her back. It's not bald patches, but more like someone who is simply losing or getting very thin hair. This isn't an area she scratches or seems bothered by it. I've checked thoroughly, and don't see any parasites, etc., plus she stays indoors. Other than that and the fact when she meows it's almost like....
