    The Cone of Shame

    Vets use them to protect their work, based on the fact that many owners don't have dogs that are obedient when told to 'leave', Vets also give the impression the cone needs to be left on 24/7 and that dogs need to be crated for 10 days 'to heal'...back to Vets, they are medical professionals NOT...

    Senior Cat w/Hyperthyroidism Peeing On Clothes

    As he is medically clear then it is likely to be stress and/or pain and likely pain from arthritus which would cause him stress.

    New 2 Month Old Ferret

    It takes time for her to settle down in her new home, some will do within a couple of days others take a few weeks, however you need to handle her daily for her to get used to being handled and handled firmly but gently and I suggest while she is nipping using gloves she can't bite through, that...

    Why is my cat so compulsive?

    YOU initiate play/petting, don't wait until he is 'bothering ' you...and you can use a simple piece of string or a wand toy to initiate play and you do it until he lays down and is panting, this type of play replicates normal cat behaviour of stalk/catch/kill their prey as in him trying to catch...

    ISO Rehome Advice or Other Ideas

    Dogs live in the moment, they don't dwell on the past and the only time past events 'might' affect them is if something happens they 'remember' a similar incident and how they dealth with it and so respond in a similar manner. EVERYTHING you say suggests an anxious /fearful dog who has never...

    Choosing a kitten or cat

    Maybe be a little more knowledgable about cat behaviour and realise that is VERY NORMAL regardless of what temperament the cat has, it needs time to acclimate to ALL new situations. New home, new people, new smells, sounds, sights, new routine, stress of being dumped by its 'owner' into rescue...

    My dog died a painful agonizing death after getting Cytopoint injection.

    I am sorry to hear about your dog.... my suggestion is to report this to your countries vet medicines board, not just to the manufacturer, Zoetis as they will not be objective about a drug that is making them millions and will not take it off the market or suspend it until these many instances...

    Choosing a kitten or cat

    Your expections about a living, breathing animal are one of perfection and that is totally unrealistic no animal is perfect always doing the right thing, ALL animals make mistakes at times.

    why I feed my dog raw food

    As long as you worm your dog as normal there is no issue and as long as you first freeze fresh fish which kills any worms it may contain then de-thaw before feeding. The issue most non raw feeders worry about is salmonella/e-coli etc however raw fed dogs have a natural acid gut which kills them...

    Domestic short Hair(Possible Russian Blue)
