   Both cats saw our Mobile vet friday for annual exam and shots.  Mickey a short hair grey male tabby cat of 3 yr walked into the cat carrier with no problem. As soon as the door closed he went nuts.  Vet sprayed him with some thing that was suppose to help him calm down.  It did not. 

   Back into the house we let him go in the bedroom where his safe spot is.  Since then when he spots his house mate of three yrs he starts hissing, growl, hair goes up and he swats at Sasha ( black/tan short hair female) and then runs.  She at frist tryed to touch noises but now gos into attack mode.  We have a full ongoing war.  and they are fully clawed.

   We have now set up space just for Mickey in the bedroom/bath and keeping the door close ... feeding etc by himself.... any suggests on how to go forward would be very welcome ... this is very stress full on everyone in the house...

    He has all ways ran and hid when someone came to the door.  But with everyone in the house specialy  his with his playmate Sasha he has been loving, playful no other problems ....

 Bella is a Great Dane. She would have been 7 in December. I am so lost with out her my heart breaks and can not stop thinking of her the pain is unreal I need to be at peace with this. I have gone many hours searching of why this happen or what it was that caused her to die. Bella was a active Great Dane she had a half sister she died at the age of 5 we had to put her down she was unable to walk and she lost so much weight she was very ill my heart breaks from that as well. Bella  loved her sister and they were always together we never seen Bella grieve from sassy's death so we just thought with our support she would e fine which it seemed she was. she continued her everyday living not different we work so she was alone  but she always had our attention she would lay on the couch and beds with us my kids loved her she would run around the house and just leave chasing the kids as they would jump in the pool Bella was a healthy great Dane which is why i am on here trying to get answers. Bella was up to date on shots. I noticed about a month or less ago that she looked like she was getting thinner i was unsure because it was a slow weight loss then it sounded as she would cough it was loud like she was clearing her throat or something she did that on and off for a month which i thought it was nothing it happen  the most in the evening and usually after she ate or just out of the blue. she started eating less and still was drinking my husband and i came home from work as usual let he in from outside and we fed her like usual nothing was different however she started that coughing and then seemed like she was trying to vomit so we put her out side and then she came back in and kept repeating it for like an hour So she finally laid on the floor with feet out in front head up nothing different but she was in a spot where she would never lay it was behind the recliner so i went up to her and covered her with a blanket and rubbed her and talked to her and my husband and i discussed she needed to go to the vet the next day. She then got up and laid in another spot then we all went to bed we just thought she was sick she wasn't crying or showing any type of pain we just thought she was under the weather. I hate myself for going to bed that night and not staying with her. My husband woke me up at 2am and told me she had passed during the night. I am so heart broken I feel this is my fault she should have taken her somewhere that night it just didn't seem like it was an emergency at the time but she was dead beside the bed on a blanket her rib cage seem extended. she just looked like she was sleeping but she was stiff and was not moving we have 3 kids and both work we didn't have the money to find out what caused her death we buried her at 2:30am next to her sister. This is heart breaking I hate this pain I cant stop thinking was when she was pacing around in the bedroom was she trying to get our attention for help we just told her to lay down :( we didn't think anything. Did she go fast was she in a silent pain was she scared so many things are tormenting me and I am so lost with out her it hasn't been a year sense sassy our other Dane got put down. This is just really hard she was more then just a dog she was our baby and our family. I am looking for any kind of advice thoughts. Thanks everyone I am lost.

Just want to share my web page with you all, trying to get the word out about the Giant Decker Rat Terriers.

Hi - I'm new and hoping someone can help me with this problem.  I have three cats - 2 are siblings, a male and a female, about 5 yrs. old, the other is a Siamese, about 12.  All three are active and in good health.  One of them, probably one of the younger cats, has been defecating and urinating just outside the litter boxes for about a month, usually in the same spot.  We have three litter boxes in the basement and they are easily reached.  I eliminated the Siamese being the culprit by isolating him for a couple of days.  This behavior has never happened before, and, as far as I know, nothing has changed in our environment or situation.

i have a question,

is it normal for a cat to shy away from opening doors even if they are silent, or run from their owner? i've had my cat 8 yearss now, and has never done this before. could it be rusult of her age(8yrs)? she also runs from end to end in my yard not chasing anytihng, do they do this as intinct or what? i just want to make sure everything is okay with her and that her behavior be either normal or not. thnx.

Why is it after I give my dog a bath, he always runs outside and rolls in the grass and dirt. Its like he doesnt like the smell, or is itchy.  Has anyone found a product that might help prevent this behavior?

My dog is a 1 year old part pit and she eats pecans still in the shell from a tree we have in our yard. She has also started to eat on sticks. Does she need something I'm not giving her. Will these items hurt her?

Thanks for any info you can give.

My cat (20 years old) has been having problems with her right hind leg for a while (arthritis).  Suddenly, a couple of days ago, she couldn't stand up or walk.  Both of her hind legs were too weak to support her.  My usual vet says arthitis has encased her spinal cord.  I want to try acupuncture before I even consider the FINAL SOLUTION.  I cry when she tries to tell me what she wants.  I always carry her to the litter box first, then try to give her water, then try food.  Her appetite is good - she is very alert- but I don't know how long we can go on with a 24/7 watch on her.

I guess, I don't know what I am asking except for others who have gone thru this.  I cannot bring myself to to make that final decision.

I have a cat thats 18 years old. She has hypothyroidism and is on medication for that. I have begun to wonder if she is becoming senile. She always used her litter box and has always been a good cat. In about the past year she has begun to mainly sleep. When she has the urge to go to the bathroom..she will 'go' wherever she happens to be. She has literally stood up from the spot where she was sleeping.near her food dish,squatted and urinated and/or pooped. Not only that..she has been known to do this in other strange places. She has gotten on the dinner table and urinated. She has came running into my room and jumped staright up onto my bed and squatted and urinated. She has urinated in the dogs food dish. pooped in the bathtub, just anytime the urge hits her..she goes.. any place,anytime,anywhere. This is not the beloved cat we once knew. We are at our wits end on what to do. We don't have the money for alot of tests. When we took her to the vet he said to be 18 years old she looked very healthy, though she only weighs about 5 pounds..she used to be very fat. We have tried taking her to her box in the bathroom after meals and in between. She will use the box....so she knows what its for and where its at. She occassionally goes to her box on her own. is there anyone out there dealing with a situation like this? All answers appreciated.

I have a six month old puppy from my local county animal shelter, although the picture was taken at around three months. I am quite curious to know which breeds are in her, because it is very unclear to me. She was certainly the runt of her litter, she is currently about twenty pounds, about fourteen inches tall, has pointy ears, a fawn/ malinois coat, non-shedding short hair, a long wiry tail, small white paws, dark brown mussel, thin frame, and a kind, gentle, loyal, slightly protective, obedient, and friendly personality. I see many possibilities of breeds in her, but want to know what you think. She obviously has shepherd in her, but which kind, and what would she be mixed with to be so small? How big do you think she'll get?
