Hi.. in this episode Cricket is being wooed by a presumably male cat on the back porch... except isnt this color pattern of orange, black and white normally considered a female color combo? so was that cat a male...? a male with x and y chromosomes or just a well timed visitor that was a stand-in for a Lothario?
‘Chevy’... has put on quite a bit of weight over the past 6 months & despite walking him everyday, sometimes twice... he is still quite ‘big’... not alarming so; however he weighs approx 12kg. He is quite heavy to pick up. He was apparently from a reputable breeder, however he is definitely not crossed with a toy or miniature poodle!He is a beautiful loving, needy & very loyal dog.... loves my Ragdoll cat... best mates. He is so loved by everyoneI am just concerned about his weight... I feed him human grade mince as he does not seem to enjoy or eat dog food. A raw meaty bone is sometimes a treat for him.He has a denta- stick daily... he is actually quite a small eater. I wouldn’t like him to grow any larger though. I call him my ‘fullback’... his markings seem to enhance his build!Please advise me how to lower his weight?
My miniature poodle was sedated 3 days ago to have a grass seed removed from the top of his foot. He has been wearing a cone to stop him pulling the bandage off. The bandage was taken off yesterday but he licks the top of his foot continually. I have put the cone back on but he hates it and so do I. Is there anything I can do to stop him licking the top of his foot? Please can you help my dog.
Yesterday it would seem our japanese spitz 11 year old male who is ideal weight. Slightly under if anything appears to have arthritis attack him as a rapid onset, unless he has had a stumble Sat night we are unaware of, he seems to be frail but improves as day goes on(warms up) he wimpers if we try and touch and cries when he gets up or down a step, he still wants to follow me around and wont rest
2 weeks ago whilst we were in Fiji we rescued an abandoned puppy that we estimate is about 3 months old. She was starving, filthy, covered in ticks and could barely stand or walk. We fed her, washed her, removed all ticks and just gave her love. We called her Pretzel as she was so skinny when we found her that all her bones were sticking out and her hip bones looked like a big twisted pretzel and her long skinny legs looked like Pretzel sticks. Our intention was to find her a home in Fiji but after a week or so she had gained weight, but we noticed that her left hip bone was still protruding and that when she walked we noticed that her left back foot turned out slightly. Also, when she ran she would use both back legs together and hop like a bunny. We took her to an animal shelter in Fiji called Animals Fiji and they examined her and advised that they thought it might be dislocated. They X-rayed her and then sedated her to try and manipulate the bone back into the socket. This was unsuccessful. The vet advised that it appeared that the end of the bone where the ball should be round was malformed either from a trauma/injury when young or by birth. He advised that he does not have the equipment in Fiji to treat her properly and that she would need surgery to correct the bone and to tighten the ligaments to her support her leg. We are exporting her to Australia on the 7th of March and are trying to raise some funds to assist us. We are hoping that you can assistance to find a Vet in Melbourne that could assist with the operation at a reasonable price.
I have a friend who has a father and son cavalier. She had the son first for 6months then got the father. They have only recently started fighting over what seems to be anything and everything. She has tried medication to calm them down, a collar and jacket but nothing seems to be helping. They are both very loving boys but are both very protective and connected to her. She has separated them but when she does they howl for her.Apart from re-homing what can she do
