We adopted a feral kitten with fleas who was treated by the vet. I am still seeing fleas on the floor in the kitten's room after almost a week. What should I do? [more inside]
Our lovely Russian blue has always had diarrhea, but is usually pretty good with going to the potty in the right spot. Now, however, he has started pooping right next to the litter box, onto the carpet. I sleep with him, and don't want to have to lock him up at night so would like to find a way to nip this issue in the bud. Help? [more inside]
I have two cats, 8 and 5 years old (neutered males). They're very sweet, but they are destructive terrors. What can I do? Have you had this problem and fixed it? [more inside]
I have a houseguest arriving next week. The house where she's currently catsitting has fleas. My house and cats don't have fleas, and I'd like to keep it that way. Anything we should do? [more inside]
My friend has a poor pup that's allergic to just about every kind of meat. Prepared vegan dog food exists, but it's insanely expensive, so I'm interested in seeing if any of you have some vegan dog food recipes that she can make at home. I would be most interested in large-scale recipes that she can cook, portion out, and then freeze until needed. Thanks!
Thelma, our lovely, fat, rescue cat is sick. Vets can't diagnose and don't seem to have many concrete ideas. Maybe you've seen something similar? [more inside]
My tabby cat, Jacqueline, has become obsessed with a nylon cord wand toy I made; please help me. [more inside]
Hundreds of baby spiders are hanging out in a square foot above my closet door, next to the quarter sized egg sac they hatched out of. They've been there since yesterday with no change. If I disturb them they run around, but otherwise are just hanging out over there. What should I expect/do? [more inside]
My dog has been on a hunger strike for a few weeks now (not atypical for him during the hottest part of the summer, but this is getting ridiculous). He expresses interest in treats, people food, bunny poop, and cat food so it's not like he has zero appetite; he just has no desire for his usual dry food. [more inside]
On a recent trip to Uganda, we heard a really interesting bird song (insect song?) that I simply haven't been able to identify. The best way I can describe it is something like the sad trombone sound but with a very electronic sound to it. How can I find out what type of bird made this sound? [more inside]
My aging kitty (as seen here) now gets multiple medications daily, most of which I can sprinkle over a bit of tuna slurry, and she's happy to eat. But she has an occasional pill that ruins tuna for her, and it has also ruined pill pockets for her, so now I'm at a loss for how to give it to her without the traditional approach of poking it down her throat. This is horrible for both of us. Please share any tips you might have for other tricks to make this easy and painless!
My dog and I were in Missouri last week and I didn't even think about pest control as we do not need it in Colorado where I am. He became covered in tiny (what I think are) dog ticks and few dear ticks. I was driving back to colorado and didn't know what to do. So I put advantix on him. Now what? [more inside]
My male cat had a urinary obstruction last year. He's supposed to be eating prescription wet food to prevent future cat crystals, but he has other ideas about this situation. [more inside]
I'm flying with my emotional support dog for the first time- any tips? [more inside]
Have you had any luck with getting apartments to accept dogs? [more inside]
Kitty randomly attacks us. Can we train her out of it? [more inside]
I took a look on Amazon but didn't exactly find what I'm looking for. Is there a prepared cat food that's like the consistency of a thin milk shake or baby food? Not the packets of broth or the kind with lots of gravy - just one consistency throughout. [more inside]
We came back from vacation (had a housesitter) and our cats are peeing on everything. We tried Feliway in the past but it didn't work and is expensive. Is there a DIY solution such as a makeable spray that actually deters cats and does not smell awful? [more inside]
My cat might have eaten a chocolate croissant. I am not sure though. Please help me figure out what to do. I am scared. [more inside]
How do I care for a cockatiel while searching for his owners. [more inside]
