Cat wont stop crying
My cat is alwasy meowing at me. Its gotten a little out of hand, and I was wondering if there were any tips to quiet her down. Its not only for food, but also attention when she meows. I have alwasy given her attention when she meows, which is why I think she keeps talking to me so much. Is there a good way to break this habit?
What is this breed mix?
We believe that Buddy is a either a Dauchund-Chihuahua mix, or possibly a Manchester Terrier mix. Our vet has said he thinks that Buddy is a Yorkshire Terrier mix, but we do not think so. He is the most loving little guy you can imagine, but is very timid and even a bit neurotic at times; however, we simply ADORE our sweet little guy-- whatever breed mix he may actually be...
Stomach Spasms and Lower Back Pain
Last night my 2 year old Beagle mix breed started acting funny. She went to go to the bathroom and then started walking back as if something was stuck in her butt. We've had this happen before, when she's eatten yarn from a toy or something, and we've had to pull it out and she was fine. But this time we looked and nothing was there.
She was walking as if something needed to come out still, tail between the legs and sort of limping. Once we brought her in the house, we lied on the couch with her and her tummy was spasming. The muscles were tightening and letting go, fairly frequently. When she was walking around her ears were back. She also kept trying to sit and sniff or lick her hind-quarters and/or butt/vaginal area.
She is a VERY happy and energetic dog, so her walking around with her ears back I could tell something was seriously wrong.
Also, when we go to pet her on the back, once we got to the hind-quarters she'd pull her head back and act like she's protecting herself, or it hurts so she'll pull her head back and sniff and lick our hand.
She looks very upset and I have NO idea what could be wrong... I looked up symptoms of kindey infections, UTI's, stomach flips, ect. But, I just don't know. She did just get over being in heat, but I don't know if that has anything to do with it?!?!
She hasn't eatten since we got home, only a treat that we gave her with a baby asprin, to help the pain. Only once or twice has she wimpered. She has drank water but not excessively. When I brought her out to go to the bathroom she peed and it did not look like there was blood or anything out of the ordinary. She went to poop, but unfortunately we're in the middle of a snow storm and I couldn't follow her into the woods where she went, to see what that looked like or if she actually did poop. Maybe she's constipated?
If anyone has ANY idea what could be wrong I'd love ANY suggestions. We are gonna bring her to the vet tomorrow if the symptoms persist, but if anyone has had similar symptoms happen to them I'd love to know so I can have an idea to tell the vet. I would very much appreciate any words of advice. I love my puppy girl so much and only hope she gets better! Thank you in advance for anything!

My Dog is Licking AIR!
My dog licks like he has peanut butter stuck to his tongue all of the time. I'm not sure if this is a sign of something, if he has fur or dust in his throat, or if it's just a habit. Either way, he looks uncomfortable when doing it and he does it CONSTANTLY. Don't know what to think and I have no money to spend on a vet right now.

Scratches the skin off her face.
In August Kiki a poddle/ cocker spanial 13 lbs who (2 years old December) suddenly she lost 5 lbs, her eyes started watering a few days later she had scrapped the hair and skin off her face to the point where it was raw. The vet had no idea what was wrong and was no help with her loosing so much weight. The vet offered spray to stop the itching (if that what it was) but he did not know. The spray did not help nothing help other then (maybe) I started applying antibiotic cream and it help but it took a long time. Guess what it is back though she is not loosing weight. I have also the father and two brothers none of those dogs developed this problem, nor does the other breed dog that I have or the mother. There are 6 in total. What the heck is wrong with her face. Not only that now she will not allow me to put my face near her back as if she is scared and pushes me away this has only happened in the past few weeks. Years ago Jake the father had something similar but different on his hip and he also has this problem of not allowing to get close to his back. What the heck is going on? I do think that they want to keep the distance from them because they have developed a fear that you may hurt them more because of this break out. The break out finally goes away but the fear of being touched does not.
