Hey everyone. I just learned from a friend that dogs can actually be prescribed Prozac, which is the same medication doctors prescribe for humans. I thought it was pretty cool that advances in medicine for humans, also means advances in medicine for dogs.

Now for my question. Since going on Prozac, my friend has seen little to no change, and I was wondering if anyone had a story to share about their dog taking Prozac. I'd really like to know what changes an owner should look for if their dog was put on Prozac.

Thanks in advance!

Hey folks

I am having some major issues with my cat. He will not let me sleep more than 3 hours in a night. He whines, scratches on everything and tears apart the papers on my desk all night long. He has two scratching posts and a number of toys that he will not use at night. I have tried every kind of corrective behaviour I can think of and the problem just keeps getting worse. Nothing in his daily routine has changed in the past few months so I am unsure why this behaviour keeps escalating. I have tried closing the door to the bedroom at night but that just makes him cry and scratch so much more. I would hate to have to give the cat away, we do have some special moments. I just need to know how to fix this so I can get some sleep at night, it is disrupting my daily life.

Thanks.

I really miss Hank he was our best dog he didn't need a fence and he would hunt with the family.

He was a English Pointer and he was the best English Pointer too.Dad and Hank won contests of hunting.Hank was the best dog ever...

:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:( 

I just recently brought a pup inside that was dumped.  Over the last few days, he has developed what appeared to be tick bite type bumps, even though he has not had any ticks on those places.  One of the bites has now turned into a kind of hard patch of skin.  He has not lost any hair and does not seem to be scratching at it.  It is located behind his front leg on his rib cage.  I have not noticed any fleas or other skin issues and I gave him a bath before these bumps started developing.  I have looked up mange and ring worm and other skin disorders, but most involve hair loss, which he does not have.  Any help would be appreciated, as I want to get him well, preferably without having to get a vet involved (I already have 4 dogs, 3 of which were also dumped over the years, so my budget is limited for vet bills).  I have a few creams and pills from my other dogs in my "dog arsenal", so hopefully I can get this little guy well and to a new, loving home soon.  Thank you in advance for any advice.

I have a 15 yr old, male dachshund, who has 22 different allergies, gets an allergy shot once a month.  He started having congestion and sneezing attacks about 3 months ago.  My Vet put him on 2 different antibiotics, 2 different antihistamines, checked him for foreign body in nasal passage or abscessed tooth, took x-rays of his nasal passages and his chest but everything showed up negative.  He started off with just clear thin mucous, now it is a little thicker and more yellowish in color.  I showed this to my Vet.  Now he is on another antibiotic, antihistamine, and decogestant.  So far no improvements.  The sneezing attacks stopped but occasionally sneezes.  They also told me it could be a possible tumor in his nasal passage or on his brain.  I would have to get an actual cat scan to find out further.  I don't want to have to pay $1200.00 to get an internist to look at him and do a cat scan.  What do I do next?  Any suggestions, and anyone with a dog that had similar symptoms like Pistol's?  I am just tired of seeing my dog suffer with that congestion.

Hey everybody

After being sick and tired of my dog constantly coming home with ticks, and not really seeing a difference when I using drops or sprays or whatever, I did some research on the internet and found a site with amber dog collars made by amberdog. As I was curious and my dog needed a new collar anyways, I tried one out and was so surprised - it really worked. Since my dog has been wearing one of these amberdog collars, he hasn't had one single tick on him!
Hope this info helps you (and your pets) too!

My almost 2 year old Bengal likes to chew on our leather chair.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deter them from the leather????  I am about to get a leather sectional and I really don't want him to ruin it.  Thanks!  Julie

I live in Kelso, Washington and have a  animal ministry here at home taking care of rescued and abandoned animals.  I currently have two female cats with kittens.  One has six kittens I  have raised from birth and are now almost three months old.  The other female is a very emanicipated female who showed up on my doorstep  with a kitten in tow about two weeks ago. 

I have a great feed store I buy very high quality feed from and  first mother, Divine Grace, and her six kittens are in incredibly good health, beautiful and so ready to be blessed with wonderful loving homes.  I am a very good pet owner myself and have three rescued dogs and four rescued cats.  I believe in good animal control and have all of mine spade or neutered. 

I am on a very limited disability income from work injuries as a nurse and the

I expense of getting all these precious cats and kittens fixed is beyond my means.  I do not want them to go to homes until they have been fixed to make sure they do not add to the over population problem that  kills so many innocent animals.  How can anyone help me to meet the needs of  these wonderful kittens and cats.  All suggestions or donations to get them fixed would be blessing from heaven.  Please help, I need to do this as soon as possible while they are still cute and adorable kittens and could adjust easily to new homes.

Bless you for  taking the time to read this post and help me with good advice for my area here in Souhwest Washington State.
