sick cat, 8 months old, indoor only, spent yesterday throwing up, haven’t seen her do so today, doesn’t have the energy to get to the litter box, doesn’t want food. any suggestions?
I have a two year old female Tennessee Fainting Goat. She is eating normally, but she cannot stand up. It seems she cannot get her balance and she falls right over. This is not the same behavior as when she gets startled and "faints"; this is an ongoing issue that just started within the past 24 hours. She is laying down and will not stand up.
Please offer any advice you can provide =)
My 4yo lab normally has a lab lean and tends to twist her body left and wag to the left.the last few days we’ve noticed that she’s walking a little "twisted", especially when she gets up. She doesn’t seem to be in any discomfort and has a normal activity level.she does have hip dysplasia on the same hip so I’m wondering if she’s having muscle spasms. She also occasionally twists and bites her rump like their’s something itchy. Any ideas ? Thanks !
My dog Pearl, a female charpei mix about 13 years old, had a very hard stomach and is belching rancid air up. and eating very little and drinking water that she later seems to throw up also. I gave her a tums in pieces and that came up undigested with water.
I have a 6 month old rotterman he still poops in house and is very destructive acts like he is starving to death ,he goes out side 6 times a day but when we go to sleep he destroys my house
Hi there, my pet pig is not eating! Apart from that he is in good spirits! It has been about a week now so I am getting worried!! I am unsure what a vet will be able to do without getting him to a surgery (which would be extremely hard). He is drinking heaps, digging in the dirt, rolling in the mud etc, etc!! He is a bit lethargic but I would suspect that is because he isn’t eating, he does sleep heaps normally too! Is there any suggestions or anything we can try??
I’VE HAD MY CAT FOR ABOUT 7 YEARS NOW.SHE ALWAYS USED THE LITTER BOX. IT SEEMED SHE STOPPED USING IT ONCE I BROUGHT A NEW CAT INTO THE HOUSE. SHE WOULDNT GO UPSTAIRS TO THE BOX, IM GUESSING BECAUSE THE NEW CAT STAYED UP THERE. SO SHE STARTED GOING TO THE BATHROOM IN MY DINING ROOM AND IN THE 1/2 BATH DOWNSTAIRS. NOW THE NEW CAT IS GONE AND SHE STILL WONT USE THE BOX. HOW DO I BREAK THE HABIT. HERES ANOTHER CATCH, WHEN I FOUND HER USING THE BATHROOM I PUT A LITTER BOX IN THERE FOR HER TO USE AND SHE STILL DIDNT USE IT. I WONT BE ABLE TO KEEP HER IF SHE WONT STOP BECAUSE SHE IS RUINING MY FLOORS.
THANKS FOR ANY HELP
Is there a medicine I can give my dog monthly to prevent flea infestations and the other parasites without paying too much? I don’t like to put on the topicals but want to prevent fleas and disease in my dog and give her the best life possible.
My lab mix found a soda can outside and decided to chew on it. I am unsure if she ingested any. What can sign should I look for if she ingested any? And is there anything I can do to help her pass any pieces she may have swallowed.
A little over two weeks ago my cat had a viral infection. I took her to the vet and was told that she would heal on her own. Because my cat is naturally very small and thin, I was concerned that she wasn’t eating and drinking enough to sustain her tiny little body while she was suffering from the symptoms of the virus. I was given a paste to feed her, and despite how hard I tried I couldn’t get her to eat it. I’ve rolled it in her favourite treats, I’ve tried putting the paste on my finger and forcing it in her mouth, but she’s worse than a stubborn child. She’s just not having it and I don’t want to hurt her while trying to help her. So, I’ve stopped trying. She’s healed really well though and seems to be doing a lot better as her energy levels and attitude have returned to normal. I noticed that she has two lumps though on either side of her body, below her ribs, located a little higher up but not quite on her back. I’d noticed this a few months before she’d gotten sick and was told that I was just being paranoid when I’d worried about it. And she gained a bit of weight and I stopped noticing it quite as much. She did lose a bit of weight while sick and maybe that’s why I’m noticing it again? When my veterinarian called me to follow up on how she was recovering from the virus, I brought up the lumps. She said that I shouldn’t worry, and that I was probably just feeling her kidneys since she’s such a small cat. She said I should only worry if my cat was passing blood or vomiting, which she doesn’t. But I still can’t help but worry. You can visibly see that she has these lumps that stick out a little further than her ribs. I’m not only feeling them, but seeing them and that concerns me. I’d say that they might be slightly smaller than golf balls. I’ve just recently dealt with a lot of illness myself and don’t want to deal with the expense of taking my cat to the vet again in such a short period of time if I really don’t have to. I’ve never had a cat as thin as her, so it is possible that I’m just being paranoid. But I also don’t want to just let my cat suffer silently if she is actually sick. If it matters, she’s just over a year old and just your common breed of house cat. What do you suggest?
