I have a female Betta fish that was given to me. She won't eat and keeps to the bottom of her tank. She lays on her side and she looks bloated. Read online that she may be constipated and to try giving her a pea but she won't eat that either. Put her in a smaller tank so she wouldn't have as far to swim for air for she gets pretty sluggish or tired when trying to swim to the top. Then she just lets herself fall to the bottom almost like she's exhausted or lifeless. Please help me save her. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
Hi,I'd like to buy a smaller version of a Golden Retriever - so it would be easier for me to lift into a car etc. I'm considering a few crosses:a) Golden retriever & poodle - F1b) Groodle (groodle & groodle)c) Golden retriever & cavalier king charlesd) 1/4 golden retriever, 1/4 cavalier king Charles , 1/2 poodleThe cavalier contributes nice looks, however I'm concerned about the health issues associated with the cavalier king Charles breed eg MVD, also potential "scattiness". I want an intelligent dog.Could you please let me know if you think there are other options I should consider. Also if there are any significant differences in the health profile of these options. I'd appreciate any other recommendations/comments. And if you recommend breeders, that would be great.Thank you. Kind regards,Jay
Dear Bondi Vet I am desperate for some help I have a Siamese cat who my kids adore but unfortunately she is driving me mental. She has eaten approximately 300 pairs of socks in two years. I worry she will get sick. She even opens draws to get to them. It doesn’t matter if they are clean, dry or dirty or new she gets them. Of late she has even eaten one of my work shirts. She’s started to eat my boys sporting skin clothing ( and they are very expensive) and now their clean bonds underpants. Short of revoking her I have no idea what to do. She knows it’s wrong because when we come home she is nowhere to be found....except the victim of clothing left by her food bowl.
Hello, I really need help or understanding of something that’s happening to my short-haired border collie. She is 10 years old and has had a weird skin irritation for maybe 3 months now, she bites her skin so much she starts bleeding and scabbing everywhere. The vet told us to put a cone on her and disinfect her wounds, which we did and when she couldn't reach the back of her because of the cone she started to bite her feet. Her feet became so red raw and swollen that she couldn't walk on them so we had to put a much bigger cone on her, the vet gave us special medicated dog biscuits to feed her and she could only eat those. The bigger cone has stopped her from being able to bite her feet but she still try’s to lick the through the cone which still causes soreness. The back of her hind legs are always open wounds because of her bed sticking to her skin, it’s the most dreadful thing to watch because I know she’s still so alive inside and the vet has told us if it goes on the best thing to do will be to put her down. She’s not ready to go, she’s still healthy and energetic it’s just this irritation that’s stopping her. I know she can get over this we just need someone to really help her, we are all trying our hardest and it’s breaking our hearts more and more each day. If there’s anything you know or could help us it would mean more than the world, thank you!
The Soft Coated Wheaten does not shed great amounts of hair. The dead hair has to be combed out. In general it has to be combed not brushed. The cost is usually in the $2000+ range. It is normal to refer to the second coat type as Anglo American-there are good and bad examples of both types. Which leads to why you chose an appallingly over groomed example which certainly does not show the breed to advantage. What you have barely looks like a Wheaten. Finally you might care to fix the spello in the dogs name…
I have had a male and female kuda seahorse for about 4 months now. They are of breeding age and a courting at the moment. I've noticed that in the last few days my male -Onyx, has been acting very lethargic and is not as interested in courting as he was a few days ago. I have given his pouch a gentle rub with suspicions that he may have gas bubble disease, but only 2 or 3 miniscule bubbles came out and were not enough to be gbd. Is there anything else that I can do to help him feel better? Is there an all-rounder medication that will ward off any possible sickness and help him feel better or anything else that I can do for him? Thank you very much in advance for your time and help.

Hello. I am very worried about my 18mth old mini schnauzer. I have just had her to the vet who isn't quite sure what to think. I will provide some history from the last couple of weeks. Two weeks ago she developed an ear infection. Vet kept her for the day for sedation as her ear was full of hair, very low near the ear drum so she had to have it removed. Sent her home with five days worth of spray. She was quite stressed from this vet stay and took a couple of days to settle back down. On the forth day after sedation her anal glands also released a number of times - which has never happened before and I put it down to the stress. She was pretty good after that and her ear healed well. I had her groomed on Friday morn just gone. Went fine but had a bit of razor burn up near her beard- was red and a little irritated. Then next day (Saturday-yesterday) morning she was a little different and scratched her neck a little and I noticed that a couple of times she would sit straight up and throw her head back and lick the air. This was only for short periods. I thought perhaps that her neck felt strange from the burn. She was fine in the arv and last night. This morn she was very annoyed by the burn area and scratched it so much that she started to bleed. From here the licking of the air has progressively become worse. She even takes herself off to sit by herself and do it. This arv I thought perhaps she was having a seizure or something so called the vet and went down after hours for an appt. he has emptied her anal glands, checked her eyes and ears which are clear. Her chest is normal and her walk and general movement and neck are fine. Nothing in her mouth or cuts on her tongue. Temp is normal. We have checks for ticks. The vet is quite perplexed and doesn't think she is having a seizure at this stage as she can look at me and react a little during the episode if I call her etc. We are unsure if it is therefore anxiety. He has given her an antibiotic injection to prevent the sore on her neck developing more along with some anti inflammatory to hopefully settle the neck feeling if it does feel odd from the burn. I have since come home and of course she is worse than ever and took herself off a couple of times to under my bed to do it. Which makes me think it may be anxiety?? Anyhow I have attached a few videos on here for you to see. Have you ever encountered this? I am calling the vet tomorrow with an update. He said the drugs will take around 12hrs to take effect. She is peaceful beside me now.Thank youSusan
My bird is the weirdest eater. She/He (don't know gender) eats all types of weird things including its own poop (!) and other human foods. But when I try feed it vegetables, it refuses! I have tried basically everything and cut it up in different, special ways but still no success. he/she tries it and then goes and shakes its head and runs away from the food from that point. I am worried it will loose its precious vitamins it needs to survive and live a short life. Please help! Thank you.
