Sudden Death of Beloved Cat
My heart is broken right now, because my beloved Theo, "Mr. Kitty", died suddenly today. I ate lunch with a friend and returned three hours later. I played around with my dogs and walked down the hall to my room and saw him lying on the ground. I could tell right away he was dead, because he's the friendliest cat in the world and would always greet me when I walked by him. Sure enough, he wasn't breathing and his jaw was locked shut and his legs were stuff. I screamed out for about ten minutes at , I was absolutely hysterical. He was such a wonderful sweet cat. He was only 5 yyears old. He was a strictly indoor cat and was pretty healthy. I have been racking my brain trying to figure out what could have happened. He had vomited a few times this year a clear liquid. But this was three three times over the course of a year. His coat had become slightly dull and had begun to collect dandruff, but I attributed it to the fact that he sometimes ate dog food, which he always has done on the sly. I had switched my cats (I have a another cat, Phoebe) to freeze dried raw food from Stella and Chewys and he loved it, but i suddenly had to switch back to Taste of the Wild due to how expensive Stella and chewys is. He was a strictly indoor cat, in which case I did not take him for his yearly vaccines. So so I am blaming myself for this. I didn't think if he was an indoor cat that yearly shots were really necessary. However now I am not so sure. I also had given him and Phoebe a Revolve treatment after a couple months off.. I feel like this is all my fault and I could have prevented this. I feel like I am to blame for his death and I just wish I could tell him sorry. I wish I had taken better care of him. I made sure he had fresh water everyday and fresh food. I scratched and brushed him. Maybe I should have played with him more, I just got a puppy and I feel like I neglected him. I am absolutely devastated. I sent him off for a necroscopy so I am anxiously awaiting results to see the exact cause of death. If anyone has any advice for dealing with the sudden death of a pet, I would really appreciate it.

adoption for pomerian
I've been looking for an pomerian. I would like a small dog. I'm most of the time by myself and would like a little small pet to play with to keep me company
So we are moving from new jersey to Maryland and my entire family and whole life has been in New Jersey. I am a little worried about the move because of leaving all of my familiarity and my family veterinarian. My first instinct was to purchase pet health insurance and that would be in the best interest of my animal all together is anyone available with insight into this troubling decision at hand I have my worries all wrapped up in I also have an exotic reptile to care for and cats to also worry about caring for down there to so the move is a big one to get used to without my human family to follow me along.

Can a grieving cat die without showing any signs
My friends dad passed away 3 days ago & this morning he told me his mum found her cat dead under the bed. I asked if his mums cat was sick or had been to the vets recently & said the cat was as fit as fiddle. The only thing i could think of was the cat was bitten by a snake or spider, im pretty sure my friend thinks that the passing of his dad was the reason the cat died

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.
