My cat Tinkerbell was a stray that I adopted at about 8 weeks old. She is very sweet, affectionate & loving most of the time. She does have about an hour in the evening when she goes crazy & gets into everything though!

But the thing she does that makes me nuts is if I'm walking from room to room she will get in front of me & then lay on her back right in my path! Or if she's in the door way and I try to walk by her, she will flip over across the floor right where I'm walking.
I've heard that it is a great sign of respect if they show you their bellies but I'm afraid that I'm not going to see her one time & could really hurt her badly! 
I'm constantly tripping over her & if I can't figure out how to correct this behavior then I may have to give her away, for her safety & my own. I suffer from a clotting disorder like Haemophillia & if I fall, it could be very dangerous.
Please help me! Thanks, Charley

If all dogs in my pack know who the canine alpha is, do I support that leader when he bosses (by doing nothing) or do I arrest his aggression?

Longer explanation: Five-year old rescued NM Maltese dominates five-year old rescued SF Belgian Tervuren and eight-year old rescued SF Rot/pit mix. Rarely is anyone other than balanced (to use Cesar's terminology) but when there is a bit of chaos, invariably has my Maltese boxed some ears. The two big dogs seem to take the behavior in stride but would I do better to quickly and firmly rebuke the Maltese, and if I do not, am I A) possibly leading him to think he could be dominate over me and B) leading the two big dogs to think I'm not a strong leader?

Hi All,

My 11 years old girl has recently been diagnosed with enlarged heart, lungs and slightly enlarged liver. The vet has put her on Prilium 150mg, tablets to draw out fluid from the lung and 10 days antibiotic course and she's also on k/d renal diet (canned).

We noticed that she has been drinking alot more and she would sleep near her water bowl after we started her treatment. 

I believe she's experiencing constipation issue and would like to ask if anyone here experience the same? Was wondering could it be the medication or the food that triggered her drinking frenzy and constipation.  

Taffy is chewing her paws   , a lot   I tried different remedies   no luck    her paws turned brown    and her mouth  Vet said she didnt see anything spot did not work  medicated solution  .cider vinegar    ,,,,,,help   !!! thanks    .Sheila

Brooklyn has been eating grass a lot lately and then throwing up. I get a free newsletter from a nutritionist and her article about this really helped. I changed her diet and no more grass! Just thought someone might be in the same boat I was and would find the article interesting and maybe it could help you too.

My mixed bread dog had his right ACL surgically repaired three weeks ago. His left ACL went out a few days ago. He's in terrible pain and cannot walk at all. The surgeon cannot do surgery on the left leg until the right leg is completely healed - another month at the very least. My dog is 12 years old and also suffers from Addison's disease. After his last surgery his Addison's flared up - he was very sick for a week. I'm scared to death to have him go through surgery again. Does anyone have some advise for me?

I have a terrier he's 9 years  old looks like Benji and very possessive and over protective. I recently moved into an over 55 pet friendly apartment building and a lot of people here have dogs. When I sit in the lobby with him if anybody comes over and try to pet him he growls he doesn't bite but he growls and a couple of times he snapped at people. I just assumed it was because they were coming towards me I recently went to Las Vegas for 5 days and left him add Petsmart and the people there said he played with other dogs in the doggie daycare he was very good very well behaved with everybody big dogs little dogs everyone and I'm guessing it's because I was not there he didn't have anybody to protect so how do I control his behavior when he's with me in the lobby of my building he sits on my lap what are you even when he's down on the floor beside me if anybody comes near me he growls I can go near everybody else's dog I can pick them he doesn't like it but he doesnt Corral but if they come near me he immediately starts to growl stand up and become my defender what do I do???

My 8 yr old rotweiler back leg is swollen with blood blisters now travelled into other bk leg! Vet has him on antibotics for 2 weeks now and not getting better only worse! Anyone out there can help! I can attach picture of anyone knows how

BEWARE! Jillian Marsh -A Cavalier King Charles "breeder" SHE WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY AND NOT GIVE YOU YOUR PUPPY! Beware of Jillian Marsh, passing herself off as a REPUTABLE Cavalier King Charles breeder. She has over 30 judgments against her, and has NEVER paid a dime. The court system can't even help you.

IF you get a puppy, she will charge you $2000 for "AKC registered" Cavalier, but never give you the AKC papers, because the puppy was never registered, and quite possibly neither were the parents. She will guarantee their health, but many of her puppies have developed genetic conditions due to poor breading practices. You will fall in love with your Cavalier, but it will cost you thousands of dollars to correct their issues.

She advertises in San Marcos, San Diego, North County San Diego, Poway, Carlsbad and Del Mar... ALSO as the web reaches all states, she will offer the dogs to anyone that will wire her money for a deposit and NEVER give you what you paid for. She has used many business names such as: Windermere Cavaliers, Gagnier Cavaliers and Baurgese Cavaliers. She continues to change the names due to her tactics of taking peoples money and being sued for the same.

Last fall I had a a 5 year old male outdoor cat neutered. We had this cat from the time he was 6 weeks old.   About a month ago a large black male cat that has periodically appeared on our property came back.  In the past the male I had neutered would fiercely fight this other cat and drive him away.  This time, he just continued to get the crap beat out of him by the black cat.  My neutered cat disappeared about a week ago and we assume he is dead.  My husband blames me for this.  He says that if I had not neutered him he would have been able to fight back and that by neutering him he had no ability to fight back.  The same thing happened about 15 years ago.  We had an outdoor male.  I had him neutered and within a month he was gone and assumed dead.  The vets all say that neutering a male cat lengthens their life.  I am feeling really bad about this.  Is my husband right?
