    2 meals a day is definitely doable for cats (they might initially complain, however, and try to convince you otherwise!).

    I would start by looking at what the bag recommends in terms of amounts to...

    Does kitty like treats?
    If DS carries treats around and tosses them to kitty whenever she's NOT directing aggressive behavior his way, you might be able to wean her of that habit (and create a more...

    I stay home all of the time for kitty/puppy snuggles in lieu of social interactions, and also out of guilt from being gone all day at school.

    Luckily, I'm in vet school, so my friends understand.

    My dog loves spinach leaves when I'm making a salad! Although with each leaf, she gets a little less excited as she realizes that she's not getting anything "better."

    My guy grew up on manicured footing (completed some level of race training before they gave up on that and sold him to H/J people). I bought him when he was 8, did the H/J thing for 6 years, and only...

    As someone who is also in veterinary school (so I understand your time/money constraints, for sure), I think leasing is probably a better and more realistic option based on what you describe. Most of...

    I don't have a lot of experience with this, but I'm pretty sure most smaller shows barely break even when you take into account all of the fees (insurance, EMTs, staff, judges, ribbons, etc.), plus...

    My parents had success with mixing the pill/medication into something sticky but palatable (I think they used cream cheese) and then smearing it on the uncooperative cat's leg.

    So sorry you're going through this. I'm sure that these people are well intentioned, but they are definitely out of line for questioning your decision.

    You know your dog best, and all you can...

    Outside rein! It fixes most of my problems.

    Also using reins in general is something I constantly have to remind myself. It's tough when your horse is pretty balance on his own- very easy to get...

    Primary lung cancer is EXTREMELY uncommon in cats (fun fact- in a smoking environment they are more likely to get GI cancer from licking 2* smoke off their bodies). So if it is cancerous, it is most...

    You can ask your vet if they have any experience with estriol products- it's another option for spay incontinence (similar to estrogen replacement therapy in women undergoing menopause).

    It might work!

    In my current living situation, there are 4 cats (3 are mine, one belongs to roommate).

    We started out with three- two of mine plus hers. My two are littermates and get along well, but her cat...

    My newest addition Tonks has, on many occasions, swatted directly at my fork as it is going to my mouth to steal my food. In some instances, she has been successful...

    They will get over it, usually.
    My dog is used to a 6-6:30 wake-up on weekdays.
    On weekends that I actually get to sleep in (which, to me, is waking up around 7:30-8:00), she will sometimes get...

    Ooops posted in wrong forum- Mods, want to move this to Off Course?
  17. Rain, Mud, Abscesses.... anyone want to vent/commiserate?

    Or does anyone know how to send some of this Northeastern rain to the west to fight the drought/forest fires?

    Horse is currently laid up with abscesses in both front feet- one popped and one...

    I guess I'm a little confused as to what you define as "toxic." Some topicals, such as frontline and advantix, do not really enter the circulation, and instead are distributed within the oily layer...

    I think it really depends on the dog, and also the intent. I have an Amstaff mix that chases the cats a bit. It's gotten better with time and training, but my one cat who's a bit of a scaredy-cat and...

    One thing to look out for with bad breath is other causes- I had a dog growing up that had HORRIBLE breath for a while and it turned out he had a small abscess on his gumline that kept rupturing and...

    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...
