  • What can you do for an old dog with heartworms?

    We recently came across a older dog that appears to have had heartworms for awhile now. My mother took the dog to the local vet but they seem to not want to give any kind of heart worm treatment. Idk if its because she getting old or if the heartworms are too bad to treat. The dog has a soft cough that usually leads into a hacking sound. Her breathing sounds extremely weak and fast. She still has wants to eat and can still get up and go outside to use the restroom. We want to try and help our new dog as much as possible as we do not want her suffering. What are our options? We know putting her to sleep may be the only option in the end but if theres anything we can do to try and save her, we want to atleast say we tried.

  • Dog won’t eat?

    My dog is pretty old (around 9, we adopted him so we have no idea how old he is) and he’s a medium sized dog. Lately he’s been pretty sick. We brought him to two different doctors, one said he just has bad stomach acid (was throwing up multiple times a day) and the other cant find anything wrong even though we had blood work done. They said it looked like something was wrong with his spleen but never actually told us what. Dog hasn’t been eating for the past two days as we’ve been putting him on anti acid, anti nausea and I believe one other pill. Today we got medicine that was supposed to make him hungry but it didn’t work, he still won’t eat. He hasn’t been eating for like 3 days and I’m really worried we’re gonna have to put him down.

  • Tips on how to become friendly with kittten? <3?

    Best answer: Buy a cat care book on-line. Knowledge is power. Cats have needs, and are simple minded. They like fresh water, they like to climb. Never yell at or punish a cat. Cats like everyone, and often will rotate affection to each family member. Buy healthy food, not cheapest. Keep cat box clean. Hold kitten gently, don’t imprison it. Hum to it, humming is like purring and makes it feel safe. Cats don’t like to be over-pet, saying hello to cat when you come home is polite, cat will learn to do the same. Never tease a cat, unless it’s playtime, usually after breakfast and dinner. Midday they take a long deep nap, do not disturb. Don’t let guests tease the cat. Give cat a folded soft blanket seat in a window, they like to look outside. Cats like to be near their owners..if your on the computer a lot..make space on your desk to put a folded blanket so kitten can hang out with you. Cats love toy mice, keep a toys in a shoe box so cat can reach in and play, don’t train cat to play with your fingers, ever..cats have sharp claws and teeth. Always use a toy. Talking to cat and occasionally petting cat while you are on computer will comfort you..my cat is my best friend, and is laying next to me right now! :)

  • If I let my male mixed dog run lose and he smashes the neighbor's standard poodle, should I get one of the puppies free?

    Best answer: I've always thought standard poodles are a bit gay. Even the lady ones. Do you really think your dog would want to smash in some poodle's back doors? If my dog did that I'd be concerned that he was a homo. Even if it was hetero male dog penis on female dog vulva action. Poodles are totally gay.

    But to answer your question: yes - I think you would be entitled to one of the pups.

  • Yorkshire aggressive towards puppy. Help!?

    I’ve recently got a new female Yorkshire puppy, it’s been with us for a few days now and is my current male yorkie’s offspring. The dog is fine with it being in the house until it runs up and tries to play with him. He starts barking/growling at her but as of yet hasn’t harmed her. We’ve tried holding the puppy so our current dog can get used to it but he’s too scared to approach the puppy and avoids contact at all cost... how do I help him get used to the new puppy?

  • How many litter boxes do I need for my cat? How does the cat know which is for number 1 and which is for number 2?

    Best answer: I was always told the rule of thumb is 1 litter box for each cat plus an extra. They also do both in the same litter box. Some will go #1 in one box and go #2 in another like one of my cats.
