Hi. We have a family friend who recently passed away 2 days ago. She lived in assisted living and she had a companion cat who is 1.5 years old. The assisted living wanted him out the following day. She did not have family or friends that could take the cat (we actually met her through my grandma. My grandma lived at the assisted living and they were best friends. After my grandma passed away, our who family stayed friends with this lady. She was our new adopted grandma). I took the cat home with me yesterday with the intention of either finding him a good home or placing him in a no-kill shelter (I am planning on giving a hefty donation to one of these shelters and I am willing to drive 100 miles or more to find him a good place, so that is not the problem. Here is the real problem. He is very depressed. I don’t know if I should have him get attached to our family only to have him move on to another place and get depressed again. I have no problem keeping him for about a month, but I don’t know if it is best for him to stay with us a while or get relocated asap! I would love to keep him, but I already have 2 other boy cats and the younger of the two is extremely territorial and I can not let them be together. He would probably severely wound or kill this new cat. By the way, I have them separated. I have this new cat in my oldest daughter’s bedroom for now. Please help! I just want to do what is right for this cat. I want this sweet kitty to have the best life possible, but I just don’t know what to do.
My dog ate a small jade plant at least an hour and A half ago, and isn’t acting abnormally. 2 year old spayed female English Springer spaniel, 45 pounds. She ate dinner an hour ago. Should I try to induce vomiting or just monitor her?
I brush my 3 dogs teeth several times per week but feel that I can’t get to insides of teeth well. My Bichon is beginning to eat slower than he used to and it seems his teeth are becoming sensitive. Is there anything in addition to brushing with dog specific toothpaste to support dental health? I am seeking the most natural intervention possible.
My Bichon who is 6 years old had an inflamed disk in her back. The acupuncturist suggested adding magnesium to her diet. What would be the recommend daily dosage for a dog?

I Was Wondering If You Could Suggest Some Ways To Discourage Jealosy, And Encourage Co-exsisting…
I was wondering if you could suggest some ways to discourage jealosy, and encourage co-exsisting between 2 female, spayed, approx. 4 year old Golden Retrievers? We rescued one dog on July 14th, and the second on October 12th. Penny, our first Golden, has adjusted beautifully in our home and with our family. Since we’ve brought Rosie home, Penny’s disposition has changed and she’s taken to snapping at Rosie, following her around everywhere, and trying to beat Rosie in and out of rooms, to greet us, get on the sofa, etc. Rosie just seems happy to be in a home and have a family, however, she will bare her teeth and growl on occasion as well. We live in a townhouse with a fenced yard and take the dogs on 1 to 2 walks per day. We’ve done all the logical things (I think). I am wondering if you could give us some pointers on how to encourage the girls at least getting along, and being able to trust them in a room alone together. Also, how long do these kinds of adjustments usually take?
Thank you so much,
My boxer puppy is kind of goody like he hit his head too many times. Heis a puppy but I don’t know if that is how all puppies are. And he is very fearful of other dogs. We got him when he was about 15 weeks old and I really don’t see why or how that would affect him. I think that maybe something happened with another dog but when I got him I was hoping for a dog that will protect my young daughter when she goes out for runs. Will his behavior change as he gets older? Please, email me back at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi, I have adopted a 4 year old cat. I have some information but not a lot.She is coming around to us great and very loveable. I have her upstairs off to herself for now.I have 3 dogs who are used to cats but I d not to my knowledge think she has been with dogs. My cats passed away they were all 16 and 17. The dogs have all been raised with cats but I need to slowly introduce the group. Two dogs are seniors and will not care. One is 5 and she is a yorky and she is more interested in everything then the other two. Now if the cat hiss’s which she may my yorky may become a barker at her.She is the worry. Do I slowly take Bella the one I worry about up to my cat Nina? She has already met a stray I have had for 3 years who comes in and goes where he wants and the dogs are great with him. She just stuck her hair up and looked but did not go after the cat. He is such a great cat he will walk away from a fight. Thanks for any help.
