    Not to fear, definitely NOT a brown recluse.

    Looks more like either a wolf spider (though those usually have markings on their back like a striped sunflower seed), or what is called a southern...

    Our itchy old dog also developed freckly-looking bare skin inside of her thighs which the vet diagnosed as flea allergy - the Frontline we've used for years has stopped working, apparently, which was...

    Had good luck with Mare Magic with an also-new crazy mare acquired late last year.

    I believe though that adjusting to her new home, adding some fat to her diet and the presence of a calm...

    You're right, he is adorable, and you are adorable for taking him home.

    Before I even saw the photo I was thinking Lefty. Which is a family joke of ours regarding one-eyed pets. Which maybe says...

    Thanks for sharing her story with us; being a mentor in her own way for all those young riders is a legacy worth noting.

    Bravado unexpectedly went out the window when the kids arrived. The dangers of this sport are painfully obvious, and I've known adults with fractures, one burst spleen, even one lady who died...

    Tribute for Sissy

    I can't make her live forever, but would like to mark the life of this elderly Beagle/Basset Bagle Hound who is winding down.

    She'd been at the shelter for 3 months when we saw her picture in the...

    Good thoughts from the Midwest, and glad to hear Lucy has perhaps the lesser of the two evils!

    Had a cat with this, not elderly however, who came out of it fine. While they're showing symptoms...

    We have a 20-year-old deaf, gimpy nighttime yowler too - apparently hyperthyroid can cause the excess vocalization sometimes - worth checking out.

    Ours yowls so she can figure out where we are - a...

    Saw a horse at a Kansas stable last fall that had pigeon fever which in his case caused massive swelling in chest and between front legs, but I believe can also cause poll and throat swelling? ...

    Agree with NorCal that this is probably related to the move; similar problem with my mare last fall when she first arrived and again when moved to a boarding facility.

    And I forgot to mention that once it was a floor drain that needed some water poured down - same problem as with the sink - the water needs to be in there to keep the smells blocked.

    We've twice had a similar problem which turned out to be an infrequently used sink in which the water had evaporated from the trap pipe underneath, allowing sewer gas back into the house.

    Count me in the camp with those who believe their pets (and I include horses in that category) are family. My husband says I "mate for life", and that's a pretty good summary.

    Yes, a little shedding going on here in the KC area too, and they have that slightly fuzzy look like the new stuff is coming in.

    The spiders are building their webs too, which is a sure sign.
