    Cytopoint and my 3 yr old Frenchie

    If it only happens in spring it is likely to be flower/grass/tree pollens, so have you tried hosing down after a walk, 100% Aloe Vera gel could help which dries with a 'coating' so it could stop the pollen settling onto the skin and enables any to be easier washed off ( with just water)...

    My female cat keeps getting bullied by her brother

    Purchase a cat tree so she has the opportunity to get up high and out of his way and deplete his energy more with chase games as half an hour a day with him chasing a wand toy will turn his attention to you and the toy and not her as the chase toy

    Looking for a cat on Petfinder

    Does the rescue not have a phone number you can phone and ask about the cat in question as well as show your interest/put her 'on hold' before you take your trip.... my guess is you have already made up your mind and will be making the trip anyway :)

    Is vet just "fishing" for for $$ ?

    I completely agree with you, you pay for their services same as you would a plumber, or car mechanic and if you don't get the service you deserve, you get bad service, you are paying for their lack of knowledge/experience , they are failing to get another professional opinion before making...

    The feelings depression, guilt and emptiness

    What you are feeling is grief for the loss of your dog and that is very normal. What you need to remember is grieving takes time, it is an essential part of healing and accepting. You gave Daisy a 'second' chance and all the care and love she deserved and you both benefited, what you also know...

    Can pets get coronavirus?

    Interesting to read this from the perspective of when it was posted over a year ago and remembering how little we all knew then to now. It has certainly been a year of great changes.

    If you purchase from a pet shop you are supporting BYB/pet farming/mills as NO breeder would sell their litters by sending them off to live in a pet shop and that pet ending up being the subject of an impulse purchaser, the reality is the pet shop would not pay the price of pets from a breeder...

    anybody tried the flopping fish advertised on TV?

    Glad you didn't pay as much as the TV ad, like all of these things they are sold as impulse purchases cheap enough so people don't feel they are being ripped off too much but these types of purchases are never worth what you pay and more than often thrown in a cupboard very soon after buying
