    Harness Trouble

    How is she doing now, have you put a harness on her yet and taken her for a walk?

    Harness Trouble

    Maybe you just need to be more confident yourself, and just do it. The dog senses your stress about it.....could that be an issue? I am very empathetic to creatures and sometimes I've found that's not a good thing.

    Harness Trouble

    I agree, you should try to get a harness that is easy to put on, not a step in. Also, taking her for a short walk to get her mind off of it is best. Do you have a friend or neighbor who can gently help you put the harness on her that you have now? Once it's on and she has had a few walks in...

    Harness Trouble

    Can you relax with her on your lap and have the harness handy, then put it on step by step while still calmly holding her and talking gently to her? Good luck, I agree she has to be introduced to it in a positive way slowly, she needs to get over the fear by experiencing the harness. TTouch...

    Has his time come?

    I agree with Linda. The dog is old and her days are already numbered due to that fact, killing her for convenience because your wife is tired of cleaning up some accidents is very cruel and selfish, IMO. It seems the dog is enjoying her life otherwise, long walks, stairs, eating and drinking...

    8 Month Maine Coon barely eats

    I have no experience with Maine Coons, but they are beautiful cats. I have a Manx who has been eating Blue Buffalo dry food and canned food like Wellness, Avoderm, Natural Balance. Just had him in today at ten years old for a couple of vaccinations, and the vet said he looked healthy. I'm not...

    HELP! A kitten has somehow gotten stuck in my house.

    That's terrible, I really hope you can get someone to locate the kitten and get it out, maybe the Humane Society? Please let us know if you've had any success. I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I knew that baby was scared and suffering somewhere in my home.

    why does my old cat so fussy about canned food? or hard food too

    Good advice, probiotics are good for dogs, cats and people. Good to have balance in the gut.

    why does my old cat so fussy about canned food? or hard food too

    Some cats are known to be picky eaters, not unusual either in a cat at that age. My cat mostly likes chicken and turkey food, never cared for fish. I have found around five foods he has liked for years and just stay with them. I only feed 1/3 of a small can per day, and free-feed the dry...
