Thank You For Responding. I Just Wanted To Add That We Do Take Her…
Thank you for responding. I just wanted to add that we do take her for walks and to the park with us. We are renting and my landlord didn’t want us to have any pets to begin with. So getting a companion is definitely out of the question 🙁 However we do take her with us to our families houses alot that have other dogs and she defiantly enjoys that. What’s really strange is that this behavior has just started within the last 2 months. We crate trained her from the very first day we got her 2 years ago and she’s been absolutely great with it.we even find her in there in the middle of the day our if we’re up late watching a movie. Lol 🙂 Recently she has shredded a small bed she’d had in there for months and a couple of pillows. I’ve put both stuffed and chew toys in there such add a pigs ear. I have also put a piece of worn clothing inside so she can still have our scent close. I did buy the thunder shirt for her last well and that was the worst day of them all, she shredded the pillow inside, chewed up the plastic piece that slides inside the bottom of the cage, flipped the cage over, squeezed out of a small whole on the bottom and pooped in my don’t room.:( She was waiting by the door wagging her tail when we got home not even 2 hours later. I have a small patio in front of my house I have tried to leave her in in the beginning but she jumps the 3.5-4 foot fence lol. This little lady is driving me nuts! Any other suggestions? Lol
How can a cat that is on mostly wet food, (only a sprinkling of dry with his wet) still get a UTI and blockage. Is it possible that a canned food diet that consists of largely fish (they prefer them over the chicken and turkey varieties) is the cause? I have a Maine Coone male that is 3 years old and he is now at the ER. I feed him the 5 varities of Natural Balance from Pet Valu. 3 of the 5 are fish, and another is fish based, but not actually called fish. The dry is a good quality grain free, but he gets very little of this. I am at a loss and do not want to go thru this again as the expense is prohibitive. any thoughts?
I have a Boston Terrier Mix. She has very bad seperation anxiety when left in her crate. Is it ok to give her Banadryl? If so how much do I give her?
I have a mixed breed dog age thought to be around 9, medium size. She loves to protect our 3 acres and will run the length of the property if the neighboring farmer’s dog is out in the field behind us. She is getting up and down more slowly, running not quite as fast but still as fast as she can possibly go. We tried her on Foster & Smith Joint Care but it upset her stomach. Is Cosequin another good supplement and what else might you suggest please.

I recently heard that rescued pets are incapable of showing emotion when taken to their forever home. This seems contrary to my own observations. My most recent adoption, the kitten I named Scout seemed overwhelmingly happy coming into our home and is basically all over me with affection.
From your professional standpoint, is the happiness they show have any scientific basis?
Our pup keeps catching his front dew claw while playing. He is over 7 (dont know exact age because he is a rescue) so i was told be can no longer get them removed because the joint is established. Which i completely understand but this continues to happen every couple months! Any advice here? We try & keep the nail cut short to decrease the chance of it catching. He just loves to play so much! We hate when he cant play for over a week to allow his claw to heal, he gets so sad 🙁
I have a 12yr old female boxer named Sasha. She is routinely treated every month with Frontline. I’ve noticed recently that she will have random bouts of licking the air in a repetitive fashion and salivating.
Tonight I gave her the monthly dose of frontline and about two hours later she started the active licking of the air and ground and I began to think maybe there is a coloration between the frontline and the licking.
Unfortunately, I can’t recall if this happened at the same time of last months dose. I plan on watching next month more closely.
Is it possible for Frontline to have this type of side effect? thank you for your advice!! ~kelly
