Yesterday morning I woke up at 8 to my cat lying outside my bedroom door on his side, struggling to breathe and drooling. I listened to his heartbeat, which seemed normal. He was meowing softly, struggling. This continued until 8:15 am. He was only 4 and a half, and an outdoor cat. He was up to date on everything. In the car to the vet, he was meowing loudly and struggling. I pet him, and he looked scared. Finally after petting him for a moment he became quiet. We got to the emergency vet at 8:50. They took him into the back and within 30 seconds they came back and said, "He's going into arrest." I ran back and it was too late. They said there was fluid filling his lungs and abdomen. They were keeping him alive manually. He went into arrest a second time. I didn't have the funds to keep going. They were going to charge me 2000 dollars. I'm taking him this morning to be cremated. I just wish I knew what happened to my baby. My poor poor baby is gone and no one can tell me why!! Please give me some insight. This hurts so much. The vet there said that it could have been a tumor.
I just read where it said to put hot pepper on your dogs feet to stop the licking. Thats insane! Thats cruel. Did you ever have an itch? Dont agree with anxiety or mental problems or boredom. The dog had some kind of skin infection. Could be systemic. Sometimes yeast. Regardless, never punish the animal by hurting him more. Thats just mean and abusive.

They love to laze around, when they aren't barking at everything that moves.

Homemade diets vs. Commercial Food
What do all of you pet owners think, is a homemade diet safer than the food you buy at the store?
The recent recall of commercial dog food manufactured by Menu Foods and other dog food companies continues to escalate as worried dog parents scurry for alternative, safe dog food choices.
To date more than 100 brands of commercial dog food have been recalled after discovery of toxic contaminants that have produced kidney failure and death in dogs nationwide.
Intent on protecting the health and safety of their dogs, many dog parents have opted to prepare dog food themselves at home. The question on many a dog nutritionist’s mind these days is whether homemade dog food is dangerous or a safe and nutritious alternative to commercial dog food.

Need advice about cat in heat cycle
Hi Can anyone help ? all the cats I have had before have been spade so this is all new to me . we got a Russian blue kitten who is 10 months old now and she has had 3 lots ok coming into heat the last 2 were only about 2 weeks apart and were before Christmas , it has now been 5 weeks since the last one and I was just wanting to know if that is normal to have such large gaps between . She is an indoor cat so has never been out so no chance of her being pregnant but at some point in her future we would like her to have kittens . Just wanted to know if everything is ok with her , should I be worried that it has been so long since the last cycle . Any advice would be much appreciated . thanks
Hi The photo of the white dog in Scottish Terrier section is not a Scottish Terrier but a west highland Terrier. Scottish terriers have erect ears not floppy ears. Please remove. Scottish Terriers are never white, only black, wheaten (golden color) and brindle.
