  • Returning an adopted dog (within 24hrs)?

    Best answer: I would say you were mislead but you did spend some time with the dog. He was nothing like what was described and would not have gotten along with your other dog. I don't care if no one else would want him - he did not fit in your household and you should have never taken him. The fact that he was not even... show more
    Best answer: I would say you were mislead but you did spend some time with the dog. He was nothing like what was described and would not have gotten along with your other dog. I don't care if no one else would want him - he did not fit in your household and you should have never taken him.

    The fact that he was not even updated in shots and had a lot of other problems, should have been red flags.

    I don't know if you can get any of the money back but I would take this dog back tomorrow morning and see what you can do.

    I’ve just come back from putting my cat down...the vet discovered she had a massive tumour in her jaw. Previous to this, this poor cat when thru dental surgery where they thought she had extreme decay, 12 or her teeth were extracted. Now one month after the surgery and two additional vets saying bloody discharge in both her eye and mouth was normal, we saw another senior vet today who informed us she had a huge tumour growing in her jaw. We visited this veterinary clinic over three times in the past month...they would have had to have know she had a tumour. I feel like I was completely played, they’ve gotten over $2000 out of me for “dental surgery “, using every scare tactic on me, knowing this poor animal was suffering. She even had blood work and xrays done, they came back normal I am livid that my poor cat was living in such pain for months. And I am livid that I trusted that these people knew what they were doing. Over 5 different vets (from three difference clinics) assured me that pain medication would help her and she and her healing was perfectly normal. What are my rights? And what should I do? Can I sue and is there a point of going to an organization like peta to help? Thank you

  • Can I leave my cat outside overnight?

    My parents say I have to keep her in my room at night as she jumps and scratches at doors waking them up early in the morning, but now she does the same to me by trying to get out of my room.

We don’t have a cat flap so we let her in and out through windows, unfortunately my room is at the front of my house ground floor, and my parents don’t like the windows being left open overnight, so is it ok to leave her outside overnight?

  • Why is my kitten pooping diarrhoea with bright red blood?

    Best answer: You need to take kitten to the vet. Hopefully, a vet is open, being it is the weekend, so that means getting on the phone right away and calling. Bring a sample of the poop, if possible, but even if you don't have a sample, go there with the kitten. Often, stress can cause diarrhea, so this may contribute to... show more
    Best answer: You need to take kitten to the vet. Hopefully, a vet is open, being it is the weekend, so that means getting on the phone right away and calling. Bring a sample of the poop, if possible, but even if you don't have a sample, go there with the kitten.

    Often, stress can cause diarrhea, so this may contribute to the problem, but anything with blood in it is cause for concern. Often, with a new kitten or pup, a change in food can cause trouble, but it is assumed the kitten was not eating while in the car. If he was, a different food may have added to the trouble.

    Parasites can cause a lot of issues. This may or may not be "worms", but other things such as as amoebic or protazoic parasites such as giardia or coccidia can cause issues, which are NOT controllable with normal wormers. DO NOT use otc products, especially for a kitten already experiencing diarrhea. GO TO THE VET.

    If you can't find a vet open this weekend, you can try putting some canned pumpkin in his food. In general, you should find out what food the breeder used, and use that same food, but in the case of a kitten not feeling well, just canned food might be advised. Add the pumpkin to that. Canned pumpkin is a general stabilizer for either diarrhea or constipation in cats, dogs, kittens or puppies - BUT, this DOES NOT replace vet consult or treatment.

    Once kitten is feeling better, use 1 cup dry food/2 tablespoons canned/1 cup water, feeding about three times per day at 3 to 4 months, as much as the kitten will eat. Young kittens should not be limited in amount of food, until after about 8-12 months.

    Remember that diarrhea can cause dehydration, so take it slow in feeding until the diarrhea settles down, and CALL THE VET.

    There are also serious diseases that can also cause diarrhea with blood, so if it continues, look up: distemper in cats - but it is assumed the breeder vaccinated for this.

    Kitten may have been upset with a ten hour drive. DO NOT feed Purina dry food to cats with sensitive digestive tracts.

  • My cat is 1 and we have had her since she was a kitten. For the past 3 days she has been distancing herself from family. Any ideas?

    Normally she loves to be around family and be in the same room. Now at random times you could be petting her and she will run into the bedroom closet and just lay down. No signs of pain or discomfort. Her diet has slowed.

    My dog chews up and destroyed my stuff every day while my girlfriend and I are at work. He has destroyed some pretty valuable things. Yesterday, he destroyed my girlfriend s new Alexa Echo that she got for Christmas. We ve tried bitter apple but he seems to have developed a taste for it. My girlfriend has had enough. She wants to muzzle him while we re gone, but that seems excessive to me. He s not dangerous, he s just destructive. What else can I do to get him to stop chewing? Keep in mind, my girlfriend and I are both poor working people who don t have a lot of time or money to spend, so expensive solutions are out of the question.

    My chihuahua was vomiting and having bloody diarrhea so took her to the vet. She was diagnosed with pancreatitis and spent a few days being treated. She was given several medications and several cans of special dog food but no advice on what can be fed to her. I guess they were closing soon cause they pretty much kicked me out before I can ask questions. Just wondering if I can feed her treats like Duck jerky, Chicken jerky which are her favorites. How about dry kibbles? Can I feed her boiled chicken or beef? Can I feed her any canned food or just special ones from the vet?
