How do I introduce two cats that have never met to a new house that neither of them have been to? And how do I prevent them from possible fighting and peeing everywhere?
I have two male dogs and a female the boys are father and son and hey have begun fighting recently and this has ended with the owners getting hurt. The youngest his three and eldest it 6. The son is the most aggressive and the father is timid. My local vet has advised us to get the timid dog neutered however we thing the more aggressive dog is the problem because he starts the fights and his attitude is the main problems. Free a fight we split them up and things go back to normal. Also from what we have seen they fight over the females attention and the owners attention there are three of us here and they fight over the eldest daughters attention the most. The son also blames the father for him getting hurt or the female getting hurt and we are very confused on how to resolve the conflict please help
so Chester has been with us for 5 years. 2 years ago I adopted a dog myself. He is 2 years old and his name is bear. He is a Great Dane/ black lab mix. He is in training to become a service dog. I love Chester and bear with all my heart. Anyway my dog was a rescue and spent his early puppy hood around cats. And in Chester’s kitten hood he was around quite a big dog. With Chester bear wants to chase him, sniff him, and gets jealous if sees Chester anyones lap. He has a constant need to be the center classifies of attention and if he doesn’t have it, then he makes himself center of attention. he has tried to nip at him but Chester is quick to slap back with the paw. I think sometimes they do play. For the most part if Bear gets close to chester for his liking Chester hisses. Sometimes chester does nothing. Chester can slap at Bear and bear doesn’t get. Chester likes sleeping in bears crate, and eating bears food. What is that about? Also has this being my first experience having a cat and dog under one roof. Does it get better? How do I work with bear and correct his behavior so he knows Chester is his big brother and to not nip and bark at him sometimes. Will this always be there relationship. I know cats and dogs are natural enemies but I was hoping that they might get along at some point. They could be getting along now it’s hard to tell what’s playing, and what’s fighting. Any advice I would gladly take on how to make things better between them. Any body have a situation like this? How did you handle it? And why are Chester acting like this.
I have 2 golden retrievers both from the same family and about 5 years old. they have been playing together well until about 6 months when they started to get aggressive towards eachother whenever people/dogs/animals would walk by our gate, now it’s gotten to the point where i walk them and a dog comes by us and they start fighting eachother for wahtever reason. they never fight when at home or with other dogs that they have known for some time.
i have an amstaf,last night he get into a fight with other mixbreed giant mastiff,and now his stools are dark red,but no signs of diarrhea , he’s not eating at all.
what i have to do…..?
Lacy- Old cat
Cosette- New kitten
I think my cats are fighpting, but I’m not sure. when they arep “wresting” the little kitten is using the mecphanism used to kill rats with, and making noises. her ears are also back. Lacy’s ears are forward, however and she remains fairly calm. the first thing that i think is happening is lacy gets annoyed by the eagerness and energy that the kitten has. another thing is that they may start out as playing (stalking, chasing etc.) and then they actually start play fighting and the little one gets intimidated by lacys size, causing her to fight back (mechanism, ears back). what ive noticed is that lacy no longer sits with me, i never see her purr anymore. she has become more distant. I dont know, what are your thoughts? They get along fine sometimes: Lacy licks and grooms Cosette sometimes. Tell me are they getting along fine, and if not, what should I do to improve their relationship?
My dog has a seroma above/on her foreleg- essentially her wrist. She has begun limping and seems quite painful. She has been on clavamox and carprofen, she actually has 5 seromas (dog fight). They were getting so large I had them drained yesterday. They of course filled right back up but it bought her a more comfortable nap. But the one over joint has me worried. She’s a very stoic dog so I know it’s causing a lot of pain.
Is it just going to be a matter of time with lower activity? I hate making her take even a little walk, it’s the most pain she’s exhibited in all her hx of medical problems
I have a Male Mixed Breed Dog about 7-8 months. He isn’t defecating. Has no fever. He is vomiting brown yellowish to white yellowish slime. He doesn’t want to eat or drink. I’ve been to 2 vets already and they told me its respiratory in nature. They gave my dog D-glucose to orally take and Dicycloverine as well as Doxycycline. Problem is my dog is fighting when we give him food through a syringe, water, and his medication. I suspect intestinal blockage but the vets tell me its respiratory in nature. What do you guys think? And should I resort to IV drips?Because I don’t want to traumatize my dog by forcing him to take his meds, food, and water. Thanks!
Why does my dog (50 pound) hate certain dogs? She plays great with most dogs and most of the time they run and play roughly with each other in the dog park for a long time with no issues. However if a dog should happen to cross her by biting her or a hateful
bark (there is a evil bark) she will bite into them hard like its pure hate. No she does not fight them just a bite and it’s hard to free up her jaw. It’s like she is getting revenge from a pass life. BTW she is very friendly toward people no barking at them or jumping on them.
I’m not sure what to do. My spouse has a dog that stays with her parents. However, about a year ago they adopted a little be able with issues. It seemed fine, but now the new dog is suffering from seizures, and randomly becomes violent when disturbed. The two have had little tiffs, but yesterday was a big one. We are also scared her parents or grandparents may be on the receiving end of a bite.
We are going to take her dog (not the problem one) to live with us. I own a fearful cat. The dog is a bit mean to her, but won’t bite or fight, she’s pretty afraid of the cats claws. But she is spoiled rotten after living with the grand parents, used to going in and out as she pleases, and sleeping in the people bed. I just don’t know what I can do to adjust; she’s high energy and we work business hours, I have weak muscles so I can’t walk her very far myself, but my spouse has work AND school 2 days a week, and loves this dog to death but I feel she doesn’t have adequate time for her (okay, okay, AND me…) What do I do? I don’t dislike dogs, but I am a cat person without much dog experience.
