Hello. I am hoping Dr. Magnifico sees this message as she treated Samantha yesterday (Friday) for me.
She has found a quiet hiding place and I am able to pet her although she is not thrilled….turns her head. I have not seen her eat but I cannot rule it out because she may come out when we are asleep.
Do you think she could be in any pain? If not okay but if you do I have a syringe of 5 ml buprenorphine that was for Dexter but he did not need
It. I did not want to do anything without asking you. If you think it would help could I give her the med?
Another question. One if my other cats was diagnosed with probable lymphoma. I mentioned on Wednesday (I think it was Wednesday) that she had been sneezing from time to time but it was recommended that we hold off because we were already dealing with something major unless it got worse. She is doing it more frequently and seems to effect her purring. There is a good chance I may bring her in tomorrow to see you.
If you are reading this I want you to know that I truly appreciate you helping us out at the last minute yesterday because of my stupidity.
My dog has indigestion. She is an adopted 5 year old beagle/treeing walker coonhound mix. At the vet’s direction I have been giving her 5 mg of generic pepcid at night and I split her evening meal in two, feeding the second part after her last walk so as to avoid a completely empty stomach overnight. This morning I could hear her stomach rumbling and she had no interest in eating breakfast (fyi, she eats Purina Pro Plan Savor Weight Management dry food). I gave her 5 mg pepcid. When I took her outside all she was interested in was eating grass. I deterred her but, after she wanted to go out twice more, I let her eat as much as she wanted. I was hoping she would vomit but she didn’t. She had a normal bowel movement with no grass in it. Five hours after I gave her pepcid, she is just laying about with her stomach rumbling. Is there anything else I can do for her?
My male dog (not neutered) is 12 years old and over the last two months has starting to mark in my home. Mainly the same few spots in the kitchen. I’ve scrubbed the area clean using an enzyme cleaner I’ve tried cinnamon oil and lemon oil I’ve used deterants, covered floor areas with Tin foil. He stopped for a few days when i added an extra meal to his day but has resumed again. I am 7 months pregnant and can’t keep cleaning pee up 2 sometimes 3 times a day. If my husband even knew he was doing it he would be gone. I have a 2 year old that i don’t need walking around where there is dog pee. He has also started to pee and poop anywhere he wants outside when he has always had designated areas. Someone e
Help i don’t know what to do!!!
My girlfriend has 2 chinchillas one male and one female. Dexter (the male) hasn’t been himself lately. Like he hasn’t moved much at all from his cage nor inside his cage, he looks like the female had gotten a hold of him at one point because he has teeth marks under his nose. But when my girlfriend or I try and open up his cage to let him out he starts “barking” at us and retreats in his dust bath. The female just started showing similar symptoms (about 30 mins ago) but I came back in the room with my PS4 and I saw her laying on her side so I checked on her and noticed she wasn’t moving but when I put my PS4 down she got back in her dust bath. Can someone help please my girlfriend is extremely depressed and she’s crying?!?
I got a dog about a month ago. He behaved so well when I was gone, so I gave him run of a large portion of my home when I was at work. He never really got into anything. After I had him about a week, he was neutered and now he shows occasional aggressive behavior towards me and always gets into things when I am gone. I don’t think he minds being alone. I have tried several toys and stuffed them with treats for him to work at while I am gone, but he doesn’t mess with them. My stuff was getting ruined and I was concerned about him eating things he shouldn’t, so I put him in my guest room with toys and water and bed and kennel and he ripped up the carpet near the door. My neighbor said he didn’t cry, so I think he adapted. I am trying again today and put a small shelf with a weight on it where he pulled it up hoping it will deter him. Now I am nervous it will tip and the weight will fall on him while I am gone, crap! But my concern is why won’t he keep busy with things I leave for him and why is he showing some aggressive behavior? We start obedience school this weekend. Will that aid with these issues? He keeps finding something new to get into!
I volunteer for a dog rescue so I have had several dogs living in my home over the years. My current pup (2 years old) came to me with separation anxiety but we have been overcoming that. There is someone home almost always (might be home alone 5 hours a day). He is a mix – Aussie and Great Pyr. He has a place in my home that he pees EVERY SINGLE TIME he’s left alone and whether it’s for 5 minutes or 5 hours. We cannot get him to stop and have tried EVERY product (it seems) to clean the area and deter him. I even put his basket of toys in the spot figuring he wouldn’t pee on it but sure enough he did. The spot is just right up on the wall (no objects in the way) just in the same spot. He’s chewed off a diaper and puppy pads. I am at my wits end. This has been going on for 3 months. We really want to adopt this guy; love him something fierce but this is crazy. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
I just figured out which of my cats was having soft extremely fowl smelling poop. I put some of it into a collecting container
and plan to drop it off tomorrow before noon. If he goes again,
I will get the fresher sample but will the other one work? If so,
should I keep it in the refrigerator. In a bottle and a bag of course.
Cat is Dexter who goes to Jarrettsville Veterinary Hospital
My roommates cat keeps using my motorcycle seat as a scratching pad. It’s incredibly frustrating! Anything I can put on there to deter them from it naturally?
Hope Dr. Magnifico is reading this message soon as I do not know what to do. I noticed one of my cats, Dexter, attempting to pee on a cardboard box outside of the litter box. When I approached him he moved only to go to another area and attempt to pee. Having male cats blocked before or with UTI, I knew to keep watch on him. He was laying down and let me brush him for a while and acting okay. I then took a moist tissue and just patted his pee/butt area and a dried piece of poo came off. I thought yeah… that may be the problem because he immediately went to the litter box. After about 5 minutes he left the box without going to the bathroom. Should I take him to the emergency room or could it wait until you open in the morning. If you think I need to take him, which one do you recommend the most. Thanks Sandy Brown
I’m am at a loss with my kitty. She is 8 years old and has always been a furniture scratcher. We tried everything when she was young (spraying her with water, making a loud noise, giving her scratching posts and boxes, spraying furniture with the spray that is supposed to deter them from the item) and nothing worked. We just gave up and accepted it because our furniture was hand me downs or not nice enough to care about. Now we are moving and need to buy furniture to fill the rooms we’ve never had before and I’m panicking about spending money that is already scarce on furniture that my cat will surely destroy. I really don’t know what to do. She’s destroyed our sofas completely. And now I realized that she’s moved on to scratching the leather chairs in our current rental which are owned by the home owner, not us!!!! Help!!! I can’t not buy furniture but I don’t even want to buy cheap things because they’ll have to be replaced shortly!
