Hi, my dog is 3 month old and he’s a pure bred pomeranian. As we’ve just got him, we decided to ‘crate train’ him as he used to do his business in the lawn and we currently live in an apartment. Having said that, he has a bed that he is very comfortable in and so we enclosed him with his potty area next to his bed so that he’ll learn that he has to pee and poo on the newspaper. Do you think it’s a good idea that we get a crate or play pen so he can see his surroundings ? Because whenever we leave him, he would whine ( it was for a long period ) then we rewarded him with our presence everytime it was silent, and now he just whines just a little . However, we were thinking to get him a crate so he wont feel insecure behind those boxes . We did not consider getting a crate as we would want to let him have the freedom of roam around the house once he’s potty trained. Also, as we had 2 pomeranians last time, they were a noisy bunch and barked non stop . This pomeranian does not bark and all but only whimper and cry ( somewhat like a newborn child ) is that any reason to be worried at all? Thanks a lot.
We are fostering a Manchester terroir and this dog is always hungry. We feed him 3/4 cup of premium dog food twice a day. After he eats he is whining a couple of hours later for food. When it gets close to feeding time he whines barks and shakes until he is fed. He also drinks a lot of water. He is a rescue and he is about 8 years old. We have been told he was tested for cushings disease and it was negative. We are concerned about his health. He also has a lot of bowel movements. The bowel movements are solid. We do not want to over feed him. We are concerned there may be another health issue.
Dr. Magnifico recently saw my newly adopted kitten Lil Trooper. He was a little sick from a ruptured abscess but is now doing great. My question is regarding his never ending appetite. He loves to eat almost without end sometimes. He will eat most of his dry food and wet food, then he moves to another one of our cats bowls and then he moves on to the dogs dry food which is Venison. Last night his belly was rumbling with air. What is a good amount of food for him to eat? Should he be on kitten food or is it fine for him to eat the regular cat food? He would be eating regular food if he were still outside withe the other kittens and cats. Is it going to hurt him if he sneaks in a few bites of the dogs food? Thanks for your help and advice.

My cat is 18 months old. He used to be healthy and extremely playful. Recently he is refusing food. He has lost a lot of weight and is looking very weak. His eyes seem sleepy and half closed all the times. He has started shitting outside the litterbox. Kindly help quickly.
My cat has been acting strange since about Wednesday. From Wednesday afternoon ’til today he’s mostly just been lying in the same spot. It didn’t seem like he’d been eating so we brought his food and water to him yesterday afternoon/evening. He drank some but didn’t eat much so we gave him some tuna and he scarfed that down. He had a bit more energy after that(he was licking himself, he moved around a little) but just ended up going back to that same spot and sleeping there overnight. He seems a little better today. He came and slept in my bed this morning, drank a little water and walked around the house a little bit but has back in that spot for an hour or so now. He also meows to me every time I come by which is normal but he usually does so if he wants food/water/attention or to go outside, none of which he seems to care for so I can’t help but think he feels off. He’s normally very lively and active; ALWAYS going in and out of the house, exploring, and wanting more water and food. I don’t know what could be wrong.
Hello, I have a beagle/jack mix who was bleeding from his back paw. My husband was home when it happened, but did not see it happen, so we are not sure whether he stepped on something outside, or hit his nail on something in the house. I noticed small blood spots on the floor when I got home and then noticed blood on his paw. It looks like it is just around one nail, almost like the skin may have been pulled back a bit… I didn’t see a cut, but it was hard to see through fur and a squirming pup. The bleeding didn’t last too long, he slept through the night, and was fine the next day… We wanted to trim his nails because it had been longer than usual since we had last done it, and we thought that the nail hitting the ground would just make the pain/injury worse. Our dog hates having his nails trimmed, and when my husband was trying to look at the sore paw/nail, he squirmed away- my husband thinks his nail snagged on his shorts causing it to bleed again. It only lasted for a few seconds, and hasn’t bled since. (This was yesterday around 5pm.) He sleeps all day while we are at work, and came out of the cage limping a bit today, I assume because he had been laying down all day… but is now walking on it ok. When he goes to sit he kind of plops sideways a bit, and every once in awhile he lifts it a little. I wanted to take him into the vet but of course my vet has no openings until Monday. I was wondering if I should go to the ER, or give it time to heal and just watch to make sure it doesn’t get worse or bleed a lot… or just go to another vet and see if they will take me? I’m not sure what to do. Thanks in advance for your help.

I foster dogs for a local rescue. I presently have a 10 month old great dane/lab mix. He was an owner surrender..they adopted the dog from the local SPCA after 2 months they decided he was to much work.
My problem is I can not get the dog off my front porch. He is fearful of leaving the porch. I have tryed coaxing with treats, different collars. It is difficult even with 3 people. Any suggestions?
