I have a 6mos old mini schnauzer, Sammy. from the beginning he was great doing very good with house breaking. He slept on the bed never a problem, now literally has stopped his routine. Usually eat and outdoors, does his business back we are fine. Now eat outside for up to 15-20 minutes walks around then just looks at me and wants to go in. We go in and within walking away from him he will very deliberate doe his business. I have started to crate him and he will do it in his crate. He was neutered and that's when this behavior began. His personality just changed I'm angry and don't understand what to due. I've never had a dog that will go in the crate. He has a very deliberate look when he does it. Their personality shows on their face that's what drew it to me. What advise can someone give, because I really worry it's possible a problem of the breeder. 8 playpens with up to 5-6 puppies at different ages inside the dining room of the home. HELP PLEASE

trying to breed
My female Yorkie is slightly bigger than my male. She is in heat and has been for a week. She allows him to mount her but he is missing the mark if you know what I mean. Does this mean she is not quite ready and will find a way to match up in a day or two or is the size difference preventing it. She really seems bored with the whole thing. Help I am brand new to this.
Toots vs Scooter
We saved a Tuxedo kitten just over a year ago her name is scooter. We, of course, have three other jealous cats. They range Maverick, 17 yrs old, Toots 8 yrs old, Smoke 8 yrs and Scooter 1yr and 2 months.
All the cats except Toots get along fine with Scooter. We are having trouble with Scooter. You just mention toots name and she heads for under the couch. At first we kept them apart and gradually let them meet mainly by smelling where the other had been and just followed the plan of how to help them accept one another. One day Toots got out of the room and a fight happened we immediately intervened and I believe Scooter has never gotten over it. We have noticed lately Toots doesn't pay much attention to Scooter but when Scooter takes off running for cover Toots goes after her. We have put them on the screen porch together Scooter does the submission and they don't fight now. Well, once, I just sprayed water and put Toots in the room. I just want to know how to calm Scooter down and is there something I can give her. I don't want to keep them in a closed room any longer even though we rotate them. I have been leaving the door opened more but Scooter is about too big to hide under the couch....If you have any ideas all will be appreciated.
Just adding my Babies that have past away....Tutti, passed away nine years ago she lacked two weeks being 21 years old. Dobber, past away a eight months ago she was 18 and 1/2 years old so we love our furry babies.

Dog OCD about food
Does anyone have any tips for handling a dog that is obsessed with food? My dog is constantly in food mode, no matter where he is. If he is outside, he is eating what ever he can, and when ever food is around, he cant focus on anything else. Any thoughts on how I can try an break this habit?

Feline Stomatitis Study
The Dentistry Service of the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary Hospital is currently recruiting cats with oral stomatitis for a pilot study to evaluate the effectiveness of a new drug when injected into oral lesions. Knowledge gained from this study may provide an advancement in the treatment of feline stomatitis, and possibly similar conditions seen in humans. We are seeking ten cats with bilateral caudal stomatitis to be enrolled as a pilot to evaluate the potential for future studies.
Feline stomatitis is a poorly understood inflammatory disease of the oral mucosal linings which causes pain and suffering in domestic cats. Symptoms of oral pain include decreased appetite, vocalizing when eating, yawning or opening the mouth, and drooling. Severe chronic inflammation is seen in the gums and adjacent soft tissues around the teeth and in the back of the mouth, making it difficult to chew and swallow. Full-mouth extraction is currently the treatment of choice, which does provide significant benefit in approximately 80% of affected cats. However, approximately 20% of cats that underwent surgical extractions have continued inflammation and pain.
must be deemed to be otherwise healthy based on physical
examination and blood work.
must be previously diagnosed with bilateral caudal mucositis which has been unresponsive to other treatments, including full-mouth (or nearly full-mouth)
Enrollment will finish May 15, 2012 or when 10 cats have been enrolled.
you are interested in enrolling a patient for this study, or would like more information, please contact the Veterinary Clinical Investigations Center at 215-573-0302 or firstname.lastname@example.org
