In Dogs

Sadly my 6yr old English Setter has been diognosed with rectal casinoma, he has had a CT scan which shows it has not spread anywhere else but the tumor is 12cm so they cannot operate.
Apart from straining, you would think nothing was wrong, at the moment no other outward signs.
The vet has given him Previcox as it is said in some dogs it slows down the tumor, also to give him lactolose twice a day. It's been suggested a high fibre diet, to bulk up his stools but still keep them soft and easy to pass.
Can you suggest anything else I could do to help him, eg. anything to try and slow down the growth.

Every one love their Dog and undoubtedly want him to live a long and healthy life. What are the common health issue that should be taken care of and suggest the ways to prevent them.

Whether your pet is suffering from a short term or chronic illness, it is important to understand the medication and monitor the pet’s intake and response. So, what should be the prescribed questions to be asked for proper medication?

I have an elderly cat that for the last 14 1/2 years was silent at night.  For the last six months or so, he has begun vocalizing in the middle of the night (up to 3 different times during the night).  Each "song" is exactly 8 meows long and they are sort on long drawn out meows ending with a sound like a question.  I snuck up on him one time as he was doing this and he was laying (with his head up) in his recliner and his eyes were closed as he carefully enunciated each meow.  I softly spoke his name and his head spun around and his eyes were like huge pools of black ink (it was pretty funny).  He does this every night and my husband and I count the meows (always 8) and it almost sounds like he is practicing, trying to shape his little kitty lips to the perfect "O" to create the exact sound he is looking for.  He is very agile and loving and he has a lot of little rituals that he plays out every day and this seems like a new one.  We like to say he suffers from COCD (cat obsessive compulsive disorder).  Has anybody else seen this behavior and more importantly, have any idea WHAT and WHY he is doing this?

Can someone give me some advice? When I move out my cats (2 rescues) are going to stay with my mother, because I can't imagine a life without cats I was planning on adopting two new cats. I would like to have an intelligent, active cat who gets into trouble and makes life that little bit more interesting, but I also would like it to come to me for a cuddle. So I was thinking of a Tonkinese or an Ocicat, a friend told me that an Abyssinian or a Bengal would not be a good match for me because they won't cuddle with you. Can someone confirm this? And for my second cat I would like to have a rescue because I would feel guitly going to a breeder when there are shelters full of cats waiting to go to a warm home. I think the best way to make them get along is to ask the shelter for an active kitten around the same age as the kitten from the breeder. But I'm a little bit worried that they won't get along once they're older and one cat is much more active than the other one. Is it possible to see whether a kitten is going to be active or not when it grows up? And can someone give some advice on the breed I should pic? And if they get along really really well and I would try to add another cat to the group after a few years, would it be accepted?

i think my cat is a maine coon but cannot b sure anyone know for sure? x

so my little Cuddles is 17yrs and has the amazing ability to pee under the littler box without moving. she dose have chronic kidney problems (my poor fur baby) and she is on a spical diet for that, but my question is how the hell is she doing this and dose anyone else have this problem. The littler box is scooped clean and she still dose this, and its not the floor. Its not all the time maybe like once twice a mouth but the smell it potent. 

My beautiful cat has the habit of pulling her under fur out. I have noticed this at night when I am asleep or if I do not have time to giver attention right when she wants it. What can I do?

So, my husband and I got a new kitten about a month ago. He's around 3 months old and such a wonderful little guy, except on thing.... HE PEES IN OUR BED. He's done this almost every night since we got him. It's only at night though, and only in the bed. He is alone all day and never has any accidents. 


We took him to the vet when we first got him, and he got a clean bill of health, so I don't believe he's sick. He knows how to use the litterbox, and he can get on and off our bed easily. 


Locking him out of the room is not an option, as we have a small apartment, and I'd rather him pee on my sheets that I can wash than my new couch. 


We've tried sprays, taking away wet food at night, waking up to put him in the litterbox.. EVERYTHING. 


We thought it might be because he was so comfy in bed he didn't want to get up in the middle of the night to use the box, BUT last night he got up, jumped off the bed to eat/drink, climbed back on the bed AND PEED. 


I love my little kitten, but this is becoming very frustrating. We're also going away next week and I don't want him peeing at my mom's house... does anyone have any suggestions???
