Hi Kaarah, I would consider this an emergency. Please get him to the vet.

Ok So This Is A Little Crazy… I Never Imagined I Would See This Day, And …
Ok so this is a little crazy... I never imagined I would see this day, and how I'm having visions of a technological apocalypse. My dog is a video game addict. She literally goes and starts pawing at people's phones that are left lying about thinking the critters from her game are going to come out to play. I'm 90% decided I shouldn't let her play anymore because of how much she gets sucked into it. I'm not sure it's unhealthy but not sure it's healthy either. Pawbly people what are your thoughts on pet video games and apps like this?

I don’t allow my pets anywhere near electronics.

just because people have become obsessed crazed zombie-game players does not mean our pets should too. Doesn’t sound healthy or like she’s happy. Satiated stimuli should include food, attention and behavioral reinforcement of desired reactions.. i think your pup needs a walk and a squeaky toy,,, don’t feed the addiction once you identify she has one.

Hello, 1 Of Our 2 Orphaned Newborn Kittens (6 Days Old Of Age) Started Eating Less The Last 12 Hours. …
Hello, 1 of our 2 orphaned newborn kittens (6 days old of age) started eating less the last 12 hours. Before 3 hours I noticed his right front leg was swollen and took him to vet immediatelly. The vet said it might be broken bone or soft tissue injury but she cant tell or do anything before the kitten reaches 3 weeks. I keep the routine of feeding, cleaning + toilet. Is there anything more I should do? Thank you

Good morning. I would call the vet right away and let them know about the change in appetite. I would also ask if there is anything at all that you should be doing… rest, for example. I would definitely watch her closely, and make note of any changes at all and call your vet right away if you notice anything.

Hello,
I don’t know if I would call it normal. But it’s not uncommon. If you are concerned please express that to your vet. As long as your pet is acting and behaving normally I think it is ok to give them time to heal.

My Bunny’s Legs And Private Area Is VERY Dirty. Whenever People See Her They Comment…
My bunny's legs and private area is VERY dirty. Whenever people see her they comment about it. The fur is brownish yellowish and it's her pee that's stuck. I was wondering if there's a way to clean her fur and not have it brown? Preferably not one that involves my bunny anywhere near water? We got her like that and it hasn't left in the year we've had her.

Hello,
I am worried about infection and I wouldn’t wash her without finding a vet to look at her first. Are there any local rabbit groups in your area? I’m concerned about diet, and diarrhea or urinary tract infection. Please don’t treat her without a better understanding of what’s going on with her.

Good morning-
I was curious to see if you had gone to the vet and found out more about Marshmallow?

Hi Michelle, you have multiple issues happening. If your lab is pregnant, please get her spayed. You are not equipped to handle a litter of puppies. The other issue – the barking – is managed by giving her more to do. She is most likely bored! This is a smart working breed, and they need mental work regularly. Instead of using an aversive like a bark collar, work your dog!

Seroma – Drain OR Not My Puppy Was Bite By Another Dog About 10 Days Ago…
Seroma - Drain OR not My puppy was bite by another dog about 10 days ago. The wound was not big and heal very fast. But right now I found there is a seroma on his neck, "tennis ball" size. But he is normal as usual, full of energy, eat good, no painful, no fever. I took him to the vet, the doctor suggest me to do the surgery and drain the seroma. The cost is about US$1200.00. Should I do it or not? As I checked on line, normally the body could slowly reabsorb the fluid of the seroma. Thanks in advance!!!!!!

My Cat Was Taken Into The Vet Yesterday With What They Said Was A Partial…
My cat was taken into the vet yesterday with what they said was a partial blockage. They said his urine presented with calcium crystals and there was particles (sludge) in the bladder. They told me to pay $1500 to catheter him and keep him for a few days but that almost leads to Re-blockage once the catheter is pulled so they recommend to put him to sleep. He is only 2 I was bawling so they offered to put in a catheter and inject saline and then flushed the bladder that way. He is home and went pee last night but now hasn’t gone pee for almost 24 hours . He is eating, taking his pills and drinking. Should I be worried what are the next steps ? I should mention that he didn’t drink or eat much yesterday. I am concerned it is almost 24 hours and he hasn’t gone pee. Could he be reblocked due to lack of fluids ?

Hello, I’m sorry to hear about your cat. Can you go to your regular veterinarian for help? I don’t know enough about your cat to offer much meaningful assistance. BUT, in general these cats benefit from fluid therapy (ideally, intravenously). BUT, it is first important to know whats going on and why it happened? In most cases cats this age have either a UTI or cystitis. Both benefit from fluids to flush out the bladder BUT they have to be able to pass urine AND NOT get blocked,,, which requires hospitalization and immediate unblocking. In my clinic we help people… Read more »

Hello,
It sounds like you have started on a good plan. I can’t answer what caused the crystals but diet, lifestyle and any meds should all be scrutinized. Keep a close eye on him and the litter box and find a vet that you trust who will help you from start to finish. Keep me posted and very best of luck.

I Have A Pom-Chi Who Is Around 8 Years Old (but Doesn’t Know Or Act…
I have a Pom-Chi who is around 8 years old (but doesn't know or act like he is) and has a HUGE attitude, lol. Seriously, he wants to eat everyone he sees outside. I believe that he only tolerates me and my girlfriend because we feed and take care of him. lol All kidding aside (but he really does have a huge attitude) is there any OTC medicine I can give him for an upset stomach? I remember the last time I took him to the vet, he said I could give him OTC Benedryl for his allergies/scratching. Just curious.

This is something best answered by your vet, as they know your dog best.

Either he’s sick or he has a heart condition. Either way, get him to the vet ASAP.
