    A phone consult with a veterinary behaviorist while also working with your primary care provider may help. Just a reminder that drugs are most effective when used in conjunction with behavior...

    I think it really depends on the rescue in question.

    The group that I adopted my dog from didn't even call my references, and never did a home check. They did ask about backyard fencing, etc.,...

    I've got a Toyota RAV4 and one of those gates that blocks off the hatchback as her "crate."

    I really like it because when she's not in the car, I can still load the trunk with groceries etc. and...

    I agree with what others have said- my dog is generally better behaved when she is physically and slightly mentally tired. If she gets too mentally tired, she definitely goes into "shut down" mode...

    There is a definite difference in meaning between THE leading cause and A leading cause.

    THE leading cause= #1, no other cause ranks higher.
    A leading cause makes me think it's probably in the...

    I'm pretty sure it's a CYA (cover your a**) measure just because they're worried about people actually overflowing their tanks.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
    I grew up on LI, and I've been living in Ithaca for 2 years- can't WAIT to move south when I'm done here.

    Summer is beautiful, but not worth the 10 months of...

    I did it for my AmStaff mix (unknown breeding but she's from the south and has pit bull/AmStaff traits as well as a more refined, hound-like head). The test said she was predominantly American...

    "For Sale: 16.3 [everyone adds at least 2 inches to their horse's height, right?] 15yo bay TB gelding.

    I've been playing the French horn on and off for about 15 years now- started in fifth grade, played through high school and intermittently in college. Now I'm in vet school and I recently picked it...

    Sounds like overkill. Between the topical, oral, and laundry, you really should be fine. You might still see stragglers for a few days, but really for two fleas? I wouldn't bother spraying the house...

    One of my (veterinary school) classmates' dog was hit by a car last week- he is stable but has a long road of bandage changes and pain meds from the various fractures and abrasions. Care was...

    I think the article was pretty fluffy (as others have said). I think it would be more interesting to read an in-depth "lesson plan" for a hunter and a jumper, with comments on why each particular...

    Glad you're back to something that works for you and your pup.

    Some dogs DO need a grain-free diet (just like some people- they CAN have a grain allergy). But, since dogs have evolved alongside...

    I can't do it outdoors, especially because of winter, but the bathroom method seems to work. She doesn't immediately break out of the bathroom after eating, so there's usually enough time that the...

    I'll deem the french-kissing abnormal, and the choice of location for communal peeing abnormal. My guy used to always pee with me when his litterbox was in the bathroom, but it has since been moved....

    Update #1:
    This morning, after nibbling on some fresh kibbles that I topped her off with, Tonks figured out how to open the bathroom door. So much for that idea... (the house I rent was built in...

    Forgot to add that- I'll still feed her on schedule (she had her can of dinner tonight, and will get a kibble refill in the morning).

    Thanks for the well-wishes everyone!
    I'll post updates as we...

    Update: I just locked her in the bathroom with a kibble-dispensing toy and way more kibble than should fit in her little kitty tummy. I'll add a litterbox and plan on keeping her in there for a...

    I know with my dog, she's a little runny on anything that doesn't have enough fiber in it (aka most of the "high end, grain free, high protein" types of diets). Adding a little pumpkin tends to help,...

    The problem with this is that it can be extremely dangerous to use NSAIDs and steroids concurrently (like, liver failure -> death serious).

    OP make sure you talk to the vet before adding any other...

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions so far. She isn't a kitten per se, she's ~1 year old and I'm feeding her an appropriate amount. I can't leave extra kibble out because I have a fat cat that will...

  25. Food-Aggressive Cat? -Update in First Post-

    Hey everyone! I recently adopted a little black spitfire of a kitty to add to my current pack (2 black cats and a brindle pittie mix).

    Overall, she's adjusting to the pack life pretty well- I've...
