I have a pit bull mix that is absolutely terrified of getting her nails clipped, ears cleaned, and bathed or sprayed with flea remedy. She won’t even let me give her a dry bath.
I get anywhere near her with this stuff and she starts growling and showing teeth. I back off and she looks away at me and won’t come to me for awhile even if I don’t have the stuff in my hands anymore.
I know the nail clipping phobia comes from when I tried to clip her nails and messed up, hitting her quick. But everything else I have no idea.
I took in a lady’s cat because her son was constantly on the brink of death. She’s 8, is missing an ear, has a clubbed foot, and is declawed. So she’s pretty messed up and would be nearly impossible to rehome. She’ll use a puppy pad and loves our kitchen, but one of our other cats, Siberia, goes out of her way to attack her.
We put a baby gate between them, but Siberia can now jump it. This cat is now terrified to go to her litter box and puppy pad because she is afraid she will be cornered, so she pees on the floor mat. If I put this cat in a room by herself, she will never get any attention. We don’t know anyone who would take her. I’m having trouble finding homes for the healthy young adult fosters I have. For now all we can think of is to cage Siberia.

Can allergies make our black lab cough? What can we give her?
Hello. I have a 3 year old male silky terrier and a 4 year old female Yorkie poo. Recently a brown lab puppy has moved in behind me. Not sure of its sex. My male dog is going crazy trying to bite and get to this lab. We even put lattice work over our existing fence to provide some security. My male will not let him alone the entire time the lab is out. My male will bark consistently at the dog, bite at the lattice work and run back and forth. He is normally submissive to my female and this is very out of character for him. Any suggestions/ideas???

I have an older dog that is having trouble controlling her bowels. As a result, she is pooping in the house, and I have noticed over the past two weeks that her poop is coming out cold. What causes this? Is it anything to be concerned about? Is it a sign of a health problem?
We have a year old neutered male cat named Sherlock. We have a woodstove in our living room and Sherlock has started randomly spending time licking the metal piping that comes out of the stove. (it’s not hot or cooking wood currently). He will do this several times a day for about 5-10 minutes each time.
What could be some reasons causing him to want to lick the wood stove piping?
