MY beautiful Mexican deer head chihuahua ! I am his 3rd owner and he is a dear ! 

I was reading through the blogs how people were hurt from the passing  of their
sweet pets. 
It is hard to lose your friend. We lost our angel also. We were so hit with grief It hurt meaning literally hurt. I took our angel and prepared her. I was hoping she had a seizure and will awaken, stupid when I know better. No she passed on. We had her cremated. It was evil how people try to take advantage of you. I called 5 places to arrange for her cremation. Each place had a different price with different rules set by themselves to profit not take care of the grieving person. I am very educated but pain and loss had no difference to the pain. I kept my head level while checking around. I finally went to Bideawee  in NY. They were respectful, kind and fair in price. I called for the appointment in the morning and she was done by 4 pm. This was prefect, we could grieve her at a showing private and knew whose cremations we were getting. That was my worry, many places mix and do not give you the pet you had. By keeping my head just clear enough ensured I got my cat back and done properly. MY cat hissed and hissed when she woke up as though she did not know where she was. She had a generic problems for breathing, she was dump by her mother for snoring and IBS. She could not eat any beef, and it had to be her way or the highway. She was a true alpha ruler with a sweet kindness to her pet parents. She would tap you when she wanted extra fresh water or more food. She would examine the food for her pet sisters and brothers before the food could be distributed. She was a character who was part dog and part bat. We will miss her always. We knew we would loss her first but she was with us for a short time. We gave her a good clean, healthy, satisfying life. She was my driving buddy when I went out. She went everywhere with me and loved it. This is my darling angel. I express all comfort and healing to you all. It does get better with time.  I know I can never never never replace her nor do I wish to. It would be a true hard class to fulfill. She was a Pixie-Bob American Curl with unique characteristics, but I loved her for her sweet personality. I raised her from 2wks old when she was dumped. It was the fact she was a true fighter for life that I made me love her. She enjoyed life. I will try to take this on as a human. This will be a hard act to follow. People do not take to people losing cats. So stay away from them. Go to people who have cats, go to places with cats, only there will you get understanding. You had a lose so go where people understand cats. I wish you all peace and it get better with time. Keep the spirit of your little one in your heart where it will continue on regardless. That is what these special angels leave for us.

my chihuahua has chronic paratenitis and is on ID diet, and has meta am and cerinia occasionally for his flares; however, it costs approx $400 monthly as I take him if he is not eating etc. He often has stomach spasms and frothy foam spit up with coughing. Could this be anything else, they only had one high lab test and confirmed their diagnosis. Could it be worms, or anything else and is there any herbal items I could give him instead of taking him to vet every time?

On Tuesday I came home from work and found our beautiful 2 year old Leon dead. I've found comfort here reading of so many who had the same horriying experience. It's so hard to believe it even happened, having no signs of illness before this. He was a handsome, intelligent, active & so loving Maine coon. I've now learned about CMV, which I was told, had been eliminated from his bloodline. We also know its impossible to know exactly what happened without necropsy.  I am having a terrible time getting through this loss. I empathise with all of you out there who've had to endure it also.

Hi all! I'm looking for opinions on dog knee braces. I had found the Ortocanis dog knee brace and wanted to know if anyone had any experience using it! The price seems fantastic and by just looking online it seems like they have lots of really positive feedback.

Here's the link to the Ortocanis dog knee brace: http://www.ortocanis.com/en/technical-helps-for-dogs/90-knee-brace.html

Maybe someone can help me out..

My mom's dachshund dog I think it almost 2 was appearing not to be breathing in the middle of the night and was unresponsive. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? She said she shook him, picked him up and was still not responding. After a few minutes he came around and is perfectly fine now.

How do I tell if my puppy is a female or male?

I came home for lunch and my cat Nina was just fine and when I got home about 4 hours later from work, she was dead in the living room. She had thrown up everywhere. Had not been sick ever. She was 8 years old. I wonder if she choke to death with maybe food she had been eating or maybe hair balls. The biggest shock and so so hurt. Just like my brother he was getting ready to go to work and just died. These deaths are so much harder.  Any suggestions thank you
