what are some options for treating mites on dogs except for taking medicines?

My Siberian kitten was eating up to a can a day of nature's instinct chicken flavor plus some dry kibble of Orijen. He would run to where I would put his food and eat very happily. But then 2.5 day ago when I got home from work I noticed the some of the wet food I left in the morning was dried up because it wasn't eaten completely and there was still some dry kibble. The quarter of wet food is always eaten by the time I leave for work., but not this time. So when I got home I cleaned and washed with soap his bowl like I always do before feeding, and when it was time to feed he chased after me like always, but when I put his food down he would smelled it and backed away meowing. I never experienced this. So I thought maybe after 3.5 weeks of the same food he wants change. So I gave him lamb..he ate a tiny bit then stopped... I then gave him rabbit....nothing... then I gave him salmon. he ate that but reluctantly. I decided to try raw food from nature's instinct... he didn't like that either. so I tried hand feeding the chicken flavor again, and he finally ate that way... I put the food on the hardwood floor..he ate that way but still not that much. i don't know what to do!!! I will go the vet this week to make sure there is nothing physical. He is not a huge eater, but then he weighs only 3 lbs. He is a very tiny kitten, but doc said he was not underweight. I'm trying to get extra weight on him since I got him, and now this is happening. AGH!!!!

I currently have 3 cats who all show signs of being sick.

Symptoms include:
- Lack of appetite/thirst
- "Calm" or overly mellow behavior
- Coughing (or attempting to spit something up, but nothing comes out)

This recently just happened ever since I introduced a new kitten to our household.
The kitten was in cages along side other cats who were within their own. My cats were healthy and NEVER had a health related issues until I got this kitten so I think it might have started because of it. The kitten has received de-worming treatments so anything worm related is probably out of the possible diagnosis.
I love all my cats and don't want them to be miserable or even die.
But since I have more than one, I won't be able to afford all the vet fees to get them checked out and prescribed meds. There aren't any low-cost/low-income or free vets in my area that will perform an exam.
I looked up antibiotics and other cold related meds that I think I should end up buying for them. 
I ultimately am wondering if anyone has had good luck with treating their cats at home. And if there are any suggestions for in-store meds.

My 6 month yorkie x is losing her balance. we took her to the vet and had blood work done for a liver shunt but all came back clear. 

she was treated for ear infection  over 6 weeks ago so she okay in that respect. the vet thiks it may beneurological problem.
Has anyone else experienced this?

I have a femail Saint Bernard that I got through St. Bernard Rescue at 8 months.  She is now 4 years about 98 lbs.  I take her to the dog park twice a week and she plays with a couple dogs in the neighorhood so she has been socialized. Everyone loves her as she is a very loving dog.  Problem is that for the last few years she has sporadically become aggressive to others dogs and has attacked them.  Two she hurt.  There is no particular things I can find that she zones in on.  Not the sex, breed, color.  I've started using a shock collar which helps most of the time. Most of the time just having her wear it helps.  But I don't want to have to use it every time I take her out.  


Any one else have this problem or any suggestions? 

How should your bulldog stool be.. Soft, normal, just as a regular dog, runny??? Also what kind of foods do you feed

Is there anyone here now that may be able to help me with my/cat


I'm not sure what is wrong with him, but the past couple pf days he hasn't been acting like himself. He isn't running around and playing, he wont eat food or drink water but he is throwing up, he is lethargic, and has a high temp. Please give any info you can so I can make my dog feel better. Thanks

i am staying with my cousin for the weekend and since I have entered her apartment, her dog growls, breaks and leaps at me.  I think he is protecting his environment, but what can I do so the weekend isn't full of aggression.

In Cats

I have been a cat owner for many years. I am thouroughly convinced of the healing power of pets in general.
Cats can provide great help and comfort to suffering people, their healing potential is only starting to be understood and appreciated.
My question is: how can we protect the wellbeing of our cats, of all cats and, at the same time, encourage people with health problems/disabilities to  adopt a cat?
