Is any one elses dog suffering with this disease



In Dogs

After my mom's dog passed earlier this year, it seemed she was in a bit of a rush to adopt a new dog. My mom being a senior, (lives with my fiancee and I) we figured an adult dog would be the best for her. Everyone in the house met the dog at the shelter and we thought her choice was a good one, a cairn terrier (we think she's a mix) Here's the problem: The dog has taken to my fiancee and I and practically ignores my mom. The dog only cares to sit with us, practically snubs my mom if we are around and will go to the bathroom in my mom's bedroom. It's actually quite sad, I feel like maybe my mother is not being enough of a "pack leader" so we are all currently in an obedience course to help my mom gain some confidence with her dog. But the dog still urinates in her room, even though she is housebroken and never has otherwise gone in the house.
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hello, My Newfoundland dog is 2 years old and his name is Moose. Because I could not find a product to buy to keep his slobber and drools from messing up my home and my families clothes. I had to invent the product myself. The Patent is now Pending so I can start announcing my product to the World ,and I still need some wet mouth dog breeds to make a pattern to fit the size. As of Today I need a Great Dane, BullMastiff, and a few others.

I will make the dog slobber stopper to fit your dogs head and give you the $79 product free. All I need from you are head measurements by following my measuring instructions. I can be reached at slobberstopper@ (space added to stop spammers) And I would love feedback from the dog community.

Can anyone guide me through the stages where 12 year old wire haired fox terrier has lost back legs now is losing control of front. He is incontinent. Freddie has an eddies wheels cart but that doesn't seem to be helping right now. Can anyone share with me what to do to help my dog. He has had the disease for over 3 years.

I have a 5 year old husky-lab mix named Sammie. She's a gorgeous dog but has her fair share of health problems. Recently I noticed her losing a spot of hair above her tail and on the skin, sores have developed. The sores are red and she will occasionally gnaw at them to relieve itching. Through research I believe it to be mange, possibly demodedic, but I want to be sure. I'd just take her to the vet but money is really tight right now and I'm looking for a way to possibly diagnose and treat her myself. I have decent pictures of the spot. Anyone who could lend some insight would be much appreciated. Thank you!

I have a 9 month old Samoyed who is typically very good when it comes to bed time. She sleeps in our room with the door closed so that she can't roam in the house but is no longer confined to her crate...but it is still in the room if she chooses to go into it.
Last week there was a severe storm and the power went out for the night and there were fairly high winds with items blowing around but no thunder. She was quite afraid that night sleeping and had a hard time settling down. I put her in her crate and she was able to settle down and go to sleep. For the next 4-5 nights we had no problem with her sleeping. But the suddenly she has developed a problem where she doesn't want to sleep in our room and constantly goes to the door and tries to dig to get out and jump up on the door to try to escape. She will eventually settle down but if there is any little noise she will be up again at the door.
I am not sure if this is related to the she seemed fine for some nights after this. But I can't get any sleep with her at the door trying to get out all night. Has anyone heard of a similar situation? Is there anything that I should be doing? I'd like to address the problem before it continues for too long.
Any advice would be helpful.

Hi there - I am new to posting on forums so I hope I haven't posted this twice.  I have a 3 year old small active happy mixed-breed dog.  She has longish floppy ears.  She seems healthy and loves to play. However, on occasion when I am petting her head or playing with her ears she will yelp in pain and run away.  She shows no sign of ear infection (ear odor, hot ear, head shaking, ear scratching etc) - and her outer ear shows no sign of injury (cuts, lumps, scratches etc). 
Any ideas what this could be?

First, a little background on my kitten.
Her name is Lily and I adopted her in May. When I adopted her she had an upper respiratory infection that we tried repetitively to treat, yet to this day she still has a bit of a stuffy nose and sneezes every now and then.
As of earlier this week, her bottom lip swelled up very large, and looked red and painful. I watched it, and it went down, only to see that as of yesterday her upper lip has swollen now and looks even worse than her bottom lip did. She also, in the past few months, has had the pads on two of her paws do something similar, but I just assumed that she had been messing with a bug of some type and got stung.
I am very concerned, as I also adopted a litter mate of hers, who passed away about a week after we got her from what was later determined to be fading kitten syndrome. I'm terrified that it could be something genetic, although her litter mate never had the swollen lips or pads. 
She seems happy and energetic, and is still eating and drinking like regular. Please help me! I want to take her to the vet but it is not possible at this time due to finances. I'm just worried about my little baby :(

My dog got cut running through the woods 3 days ago. Small cut, seemed nothing to worry about. Last night he was trying to bite at it so we took a closer look and a WORM came out of the wound!!!!

It looked like an earthworm...3 1/2" long and brown in color.
Roger's acting fine. Appetite's good, stool's normal.
Calling vet first thing in the morning, but for now, has anyone ever heard of anything like that before?

My 18 year old cat has bad teeth.  They can't put him under anethestic as he has a major heart murmur and some other problems.  Is there anything I can use on his teeth to help aleviate some of the tartar and maybe a little pain.  None of his teeth look like they are rotten, but there is some red on the gumline on 2 of his teeth.  The vet gave me something like orajel and it seemed to work a bit.  I just wondered if there was something else out there besides that.
