I have 3 cats, all males, 2 are neutered & the little one is at the vet today getting neutered. Earlier this week the little one (Toby) had been outside all night long, when he came back in the next morning my other 2 males started fighting, they are 9 & 4 years old & have been living in the same house with no behaviorial issues until this week. Could this aggressive behavior be caused by Toby being outside all night & then coming in with different smells on him? What do i do? I have kept the other 2 seperated for a few hours each day & then after a while they settle down & its back to a peaceful household again until the next morning & the fighting starts all over again. Will this stop after the little one is neutered or is it going to be an ongoing problem? HELP!!

My vet gave me Metacam to give to my 15 yr old cat for arthritis in her paw.  In January I went back for a refill – I 
have already use 2 bottles worth by this time – and she said she needed to do blood work because it sometimes 
damages the kidneys.  Her kidneys were a Level 1 – but she said not to worry.  I did not take the refill but the vet 
had given her some steroid shot for the swelling at that time.  My cat was diagnosed with extra skeletal osteosarcoma
 and during the surgery to remove the lump she said her blood work showed her kidney damage to be a level 3.  
She said it was her food and I needed to switch to Science Diet kd immediately to prevent further damage.  My
 cats diet consisted of Blue Buffalo Indoor (dry) and Wellness (wet).  I was shocked that her food did this until I 
started reading about kidney damage and read about Metacam.  I have switched my cat to a wet food diet.  I have 
been giving her the raw patties mixed with Instinct Wet.  I now have learned that I do need to lower the protein and
 phosphorus levels in her food.  I am going to switch to a grain free wet food (Weruva).  I am shocked to learn the 
through my vet I have been killing my cat.  Since the switch to wet – only a week now – I have notice that she is drinking 
less water than usual.  She still is playful and runs around the house.  Her urine seems to clump in a ball as 
opposed to a semi sticky pie as it was getting to be.  But – she has lost weight as this food is new to her and she 
was a little reluctant.  She is growing more accustom to her new eating habits.  I HOPE and pray that I have 
enough time to prevent further damage.  I am feeling useless  l am scrounging for help.  Any suggestions to help or 
words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks for your help. 

I am looking at getting an Akita, Lab, Huskey mix dog.  I live out in the country and have another dog, cats, and other farm animals (no chikens or fowls). I also have three children.  I was wondering if the country life with kids and other animals is a good place for a dog like this.  I know the behavior for each of the different breeds but don't know how what they are liked in a mixed breed dog.  Please help me decide.  I want a good family dog that is protective and a good gaurd dog but I also want a dog that I don't have to worry about bitting the power guy everytime he comes into the yard 

A friend of mine has a 2yr old chihuahua. She bought him from a pet shop when he was about 2mths old. He was sick and since then he has recurring UTI & Bladder infection. She has had him on iv antibiotics and fluids several times. Each time when the symptoms come back they are a little more severe. His urine changes to light color and large amounts. He yells out in pain when just walking across the room. Not frequent but he has done that several times. He shivers and feels warm to the touch. She has now taken him for a second opinion and was told his bladder is in the wrong place. This vet has made the suggestion that he do liver & intestine biopsy and also move his bladder at the same time. Her concern is the infection and the problems that may could cause. He has been sick this time since 02/18/10. Though he has shown improvement some days, most days it has been the same symptoms. She just don't know what to do or where to go from here. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, my 18 year old cat Sasha is trying without success to use the litter box.  She gets in it, but sometimes does not go in far enough to wee in the litter. Thus she ends up weeing down the front and on the rug on which it sits.  She has some helath problems but is seen regularly by the vet and is on medicaton for certain things.  This has just started happening.  Can anyone suggest something I can do to encourage her to go further into the box?

Thanks,

Sasha's devoted mom.

Please help, I am new to PetWave and I have a cat that was recently diagnosed with diabetes. She takes her insulin every morning and I have no problems giving it to her. Since we decovered the diabetes, I have now noticed some other problems going on with her. She is otherwise healthy and active. She is almost 9 years old.  Now the concern is I have noticed her using the littlebox more often, and now she has been walking around meowing. I checked the litterbox for urination and noticed small turds (if you will) I believe she is constipated. What can I give her to relieve this? I cannot reach my vet as this is a weekend. I don't want her to suffer, as I know constipation can be a painful thing. Thank you for any advice or help you can give me

My pom just had here first litter and i eant to know how to tell the genders apart please help

I have a red heeler (australian cattle dog). He's about a year and a half old. Since this past fall, we have seen him several times lose coordination in his back legs. At first he will just slow down then we see him try to walk but then back up and sit. It only lasts a few minutes but it's extremely upsetting. Is this a seizure or nerve damage?

Can anyone offer suggestions on how to stop my 1 yr. old neutered male from urinating on/in everything except the litter box??  He and his 2 littermates have been with me since birth, mother killed, and he's an extremely loving cat.  He just urinates everywhere!!  I've tried the feliway products and they do not work with him.  Anyone tried the Bach Rescue remedy?  HELP!!  jo

I have 2 dogs, one who is a small dog full on energy and LOVES everyone, then I have my big dog who is scared of everything. Sadie is terrified of people and anything new.

Sadie was born at my mom's house and was the toughest little puppy so she was the one I wanted, but as she got older she started becoming very skiddish.  I used to take her to parks as a puppy but she didn't really like it, so I stopped. She's 5 now and I have just taken her from my mom's house into our new appartment and she seems happy when inside, she kinda just lays around, then comes bothering me and my husband just wagging her tail and licking us (which is her fav past time).

She asks to go out, but as soon as I take her outside her ears perk up (like deer do when something spooks them) and she stops all the time, she hides behind me, and if she sees another person she tries to run away. . .since she moved here she is barely eating, (its only been a couple days) and I don't know what to do, I finally got a place where I'm allowed big dogs and I'm SO excited I have her here (cause my mom was going to take her to the pound if I couldn't)

Her mom was an abandoned puppy my dad found on the side of the road and is a little skiddish to new people but warms up 10 times quicker than sadie does. She was never ever abused in her life, I've tried the socializing thing. We have a dog park down the road, but she gets soo scared she just poops all over herself because of all the people and I hate seeing her like that.

I need help. . .
