    Pet sitting, and I think the dog may have fleas?!

    It doesn't look like fleas, but I can't be 100% sure. A bath would be the right call. Use a dilution of 5-10% apple cider vinegar to water when you bath him. Pitties are notorious for skin issues, allergies, and sensitivities to change. Even anxiety used to exacerbate skin reaction in my old...

    Try Tiki cat, Almo Nature or Weruva. They both make some good quality wet foods that use different types of fish, seafood, or chicken. They will be of much higher quality than the Purina and you might be able to find a flavour that is close enough in flavour to the Purina whitefish. All three...

    Side Effects of Steroids on Dogs

    Great info! Corticosteroids like Prednisone are often prescribed because they have a tendency to work quickly. Most pet owners are happy with the results, so they don't think about the long term repercussions of suppressing their pet's immune system. Don't be afraid to ask your vet about...
