She starts to walk all over the house fir infinite hours just going round like drunk and with limited energy. When that happens she might even stay awake all the night walking! Then the next day she sleeps all day. What can this be caused from
What ways do you recommend to keep small, older dogs cool on hot days? I have a 15-16yo Jack Russell x Fox Terrier. Even though today's maximum temperature should only be 27'C (80'F) as compared to the weekend's maximum of 34'C (93'F), my dog is still having trouble with this heat. I am especially concerned about him because he has a bad heart murmur (as well as fatty lumps, a floating kneecap, arthritis, bad teeth, poor eyesight, difficulty hearing, and sensitive/itchy skin).I make sure he has plenty of water to drink; stays indoors/in the shade, in front of a fan; has his coat clipped short regularly; and occasionally receives a 'cool down' with a wet cloth... So apart from going somewhere with air-con, or maybe have him lay on top of a wrapped ice-pack, I don't know what else to do.
Hi, I have a 3 year old Jack Russell rescue dog and he is quite timid and anxious, he lifts his leg in the house including into his food bowl after eating, and once in his crate. (We have had him 2 weeks). We have another Jack Russell who is female and had no trouble training her to go outside but he is proving difficult to catch and discipline, I even had him on a lead all day and he snuck one by me. Help because I don't want to give him back to the shelter but it is on the cards.
Our dog has a phobia of the heating system clicking on and off. It's gotten to the stage where he won't enter the lounge (where the noise is most audible) & sit with us, something he loves doing, he just stands shaking in kitchen. I've looked at a few things like a calming spray, collar etc but I'm just not sure what would be best. Any advice
I have a 4 year old Jack Russell that has not yet been fixed, she has started howling during the day continually while no one is home. She occasionally does it while we are here but once we tell her to stop she normally stops but sometimes doesn’t stop.
I have a 14 year old Jack Russell (Jack) who has been prescribed Vetmedin 5mg chewable tablets half twice a day. We have tried everything to get his medication down which has become very stressful for Jack, my husband and myself. My question is, will it be okay if I crush his Vetmedin medication, mix it with vegemite and put it in his mouth as Dr Cris did in his video.I just need to check that I am doing the right thing with this particular medication.
