I am hoping I can get some advice for a 15 month old Bischon who yelps once in pain each morning after he has been awake for an hour or two.  Once he yelps, (right out of nowhere and mostly when completely inactive), he gets low to the ground and goes under the couch.  He has no fever, is drinking and eating, sleeping normal and plays normal.  He is noticeably filling out in size lately and I wonder if growing pains can be like this?  He has been at the vet, and is taking Metacam once a dayfor the past 3 days, and in the hours right after medication, seems completely normal.  I am resting him somewhat in case it is a muscle pull as he plays each day with our Standard Poodle and they can be quite rough.  I have stopped him from taking stairs in the resting time but he is going for walks on leash.  

We cannot afford to run him to the vet each day as we are unemployed right now, but I have no idea what might be going on.  This was a puppy bought for me when our daughter left for the armed services and is very special to me.  
Any advice would be helpful.
Thank You for reading,

DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW MANY HOURS APART I CAN GIVE MY DOG 81MG ASPIRIN?

I have a 10 month old Boxer mix who sits on my older Lab's head. She folds one leg under her with her bottom on the head of the Lab. Is this for dominance or is she quirky

Just got a new puppy and he wont sleep through the night.  He is always barking and crying.  Should I take him out of the cage and let him sleep on my bed?  It seems like it might be a good idea, at least so i can get a good night of sleep.

I have had my puppy for two months... i have tried everything in the book to house break her and nothing is working. she knows she does wrong because she ducks and hides...well to make matters worse she has now decided to pee on my furniture !  any suggestions?  what age do they finally pick it up?  i have a boxer i adopted from the pound at around age 10-12 months that had never been in the house and she was trained perfect NO accidents in a week!  what am i doing wrong?????

If a dog has a sensitive stomach, what type of food should I be feeding him?

Anyone have any idea what breeds my dog may be?  We're thinking a Glen of Imaal mix.  He's very social, likes anyone.  Probably the sweetest, smartest dog I've ever had.

Does anyone know where the myth about cat's having 9 lives comes from?  I was thinking that maybe it's because they land on their feet?  But thats another questions, do they always land on their feet?


     Does anyone hv any thoughts  on Brittany Spaniels ?  i.e. temperament, etc.   We currently hv an elderly English Setter, and wondering 'bout temperament, lifespan, size of the spaniels,   I thought there was a larger spaniel but cannot seem to locate the name of the breed .. ??    thanks, nancy lee

I have a young cat, 1.5yr male, who lives with two 10-yr old female cats (sisters, very close).  He gets along very well with one of the girls and they play alot, but he is pouncing on the other one (who has only just tolerated him to this point) constantly for the past month or two.

Side notes - he was my mother's cat and she passed away a couple of months ago.  He has lived with these other two cats, with no other changes in the household, almost his whole life.  Previously he and the grouchy cat (well, she is NOW) ignored each other.

I am guessing that he is still missing my mom and taking it out on the grouchy cat.  He has energy to spare and even though we do play with him alot, his attention to her seems to be on the increase.  No destruction involved, just lots of chasing and pouncing with nails withdrawn.

We are considering adopting another young cat, a female, to play with him.  Good idea/bad idea?  I could use some help.
