    I've seen several comments on this thread about people wanting to go the breeder route vs adopting a rescue dog with a past history and issues. I'll sort of go along with this, though I think the...

    Forgot to mention - it was within a mo th or two of introducing a new kitten so vet chalked it up to a random virus that kitten was asymptomatic for.

    It sounds like he's on the mend but just wanted to chime in with a positive story - my girl stopped eating and developed a fever about a year and a half ago and she came back negative for every test....

    This is often true!

    Just one anecdote: I recently helped transport a few dogs and I am a huge dog lover (obviously, I spend my free time volunteering with a rescue, haha) but I just loathed one of...

    A small senior dog thats reaction is to growl and bark rather than chase is not going to pose a huge problem for a quick kitten. Throw some baby gates up and keep them separated when you aren't...

    I know several people whose dogs have had this recently. Same diagnosis, same protocol. It cleared up for everybody after a few days.

    I always do chicken and rice for iffy stomachs and pumpkin for...

    I won't give anyone hell for feeding dry food, but I will happily spend more time and money feeding wet so I (knock on wood) never have to deal with a cat UTI again. The absolute worst.

    My cats...

    My two get wet food only and I mix it with water and they pee more than any cats I've known. At least twice a day and large quantities. They're both super healthy - just way more hydrated than the...

    This is the cat that damaged your barn by urinating in the hayloft, right?

    Honestly, I don't think it's that common for them to continue exclusively using the litter box if they have other options...

    I really wish you had chosen another thread to start your breed bashing on. My dog actually getting attacked by another dog and you being afraid of two by all accounts friendly dogs at the vet's...

    Did I handle this wrong?

    Two weeks ago my dog was attacked unprovoked (she was several yards away minding her own business) by a much larger dog that had just entered the dog park. It turned into a dog fight and I was bitten...

    You weren't clear either way in your original post, hence the advice being dangerous. Making them tough it out may be interpreted as one meal...or until they eat.

    It sounds like the OP has gotten...

    This is really dangerous advice. Many cats will get sick before they give in and eat what's in front of them. Please don't make a cat tough it out for more than a meal or so. It's frustrating when...

    My 30lb mutt had an FHO just before I got her and recovered beautifully. She is extremely athletic; her right back just isn't quite as stable as the other legs so it will (very occasionally) buckle a...

    I have nothing against pits (know some GREAT ones) and don't think they're bloodthirsty monsters or anything but I have to say that the latest "save this innocent soul from death row" fad that...

    I take mine to the dog park and honestly even when we have a not so great experience she is MUCH better when we go consistently. If we don't go and she doesn't get that daily outlet she becomes...

    So glad to hear one of the safety harnesses on the market works! I have the Kurgo - they modified it and tested it again after it failed that test that went around the Internet and I was satisfied...

    I won't judge whatever decision you make, but from personal experience I would recommend giving the subq fluids a try. They are inexpensive, very easy to administer at home (particularly for horse...

    There are definitely band aid solutions - we go on a lot of "pack walks" with a buddy that is a bit too high energy to be paired with for off leash play but is a great walking partner, I have a dog...

    Is your visitor set up in a place that could in any way be construed as blocking your cats' access to their litter box or would involve them feeling like she is too close for comfort while they go?
