    He's a small mixed breed terrier we got from a family member practically as a newborn puppy and he's been potty trained for years, but recently hes been leaving puddles inside for some reason.

    He's a small mixed breed terrier we got from a family member practically as a newborn puppy and he's been potty trained for years, but recently hes been leaving puddles inside for some reason. I don't just mean he's deciding to pee inside though. He peed the bed one night and I assumed it was just a one time accident, but today I noticed him start to pee while laying on the couch then jump down and pee right there where he stood like he couldn't hold it. He didn't sniff or lift his leg or anything. Just let loose. Does anyone have any idea if this is just a side effect of old age or if I should be worried?

  • Why do people still insist on buying or finding a cat by its breed?

    Best answer: It's because it makes them feel special saying they have a pure bred cat. It's all about flaunting and showing off. I'll take my shelter cats any day.

  • My kitten is coughing?

    Best answer: I would take him back to the vet and get him checked for an upper respiratory infection. Coughing could be just the beginning. My kitten just got over it and he's been sick since we going him, almost two months ago.

    first I want to say I m familiar with pitbulls and have had good encounters and bad. i don t believe it s a bad breed I believe it s the owners responsibility to control their dog in any and every situation and because pitbulls are a powerful breed even more so. also I know the difference between playing and aggression. my puppy is roughly around 7 weeks old I got him at 6 weeks. I know it s kind of early but it is what it is. when he is just playing I let him chew on my fingers and when he bites too hard I yell ouch or whimper like another puppy then walk away and ignore him. to teach him bite control obviously which I know is needed. the difference is sometimes he becomes too aggressive and will go for my hand in a jumping and snapping manner. when he does this you can hear his jaws clamping together and can tell it s different even from when he bites hard while playing. he will literally lunge at me sometimes espically if I take something he was chewing on or if im doing something and can t play at that moment. I want to know how to correct him correctly. I ve done research on how to but I want to make sure it fits my situation and the videos etc can sometimes be misleading or not tell you what to actually do in you re exact situation. I m willing to do whatever to ensure he becomes a well socialized and nice dog as an adult. I feel a responsibility to do this like most people should so help me out if you guys can I d appreciate it. thanks!

  • Behavioral Issue: HOW am I supposed to take my dogs anywhere, when they keep using the bathroom right in front of people?

    In their own place, they let me know, and they go out. In anyone's home, they've gone as far as to walk straight in front of six of my in-laws and squatted - right on their floor!

I was so embarrassed! I now live in my mom's basement (she fell down stairs), but have to keep my dogs confined, because of this new behavior. I've visited friends and family, and they do this everywhere! WHY? And can this be fixed? (I'm letting them out plenty.)

    Best answer: Most of them will. pit bull is a catch all for most bully breeds, the pit its self is just so messed by BYBers, it is not the dog it used to be. Mankind has ruined the breed with all the ignorant BYBers popping out very low quality pups.

    A pit made a great pet for a little boy going into manhood, never a problem with him at all, or so the story said. At the age of 7 the pit attacked & killed an uncle that lived with the family. Out of no where came this sudden attack & death of an adult man. For 7 yrs the dog was good & then one day.......... Just one example out of thousands. the pit now days is just a mutt cause of the way mankind (BYBers) because they don't care about the quality of a dog, they just want the dog to have puppies to steel your money. Psychologically messed up breed. Don't get the dog.

  • Was it the right decision taking he dog to a pound? Given that he was on a chain leash with no dog shelter and freezing at night. Storybelow?

    It was a very, very tough decision and we are from a small town.

    It was a very, very tough decision and we are from a small town. We tried rehoming for a couple weeks after owner leaves him outside 24:7 but due to only being on a leash, he is not trained, so nobody wants him... two of us felt that in the long run if he isn't adopted out of the shelter then being put down is probably best. (Most shelters, NOT all, do the best they can but we can't keep every dog) Please don't say I'm an awful human being when it's the hardest thing i ever had to do in my life is to see a dog suffer and be miserable in the cold. My mom said no dogs but the owner gave permission to get rid of him.

  • Why do some people pretend their pet dog is a service dog?

    Best answer: My observation is that people who try to get over on authority and/or rules are selfish and myopic, thus, they do not think about the effect their behavior has on those who actually need the service.

My boss (a lawyer) has been boasting to me that he's trying to get his girlfriend's dog (who failed the actual service dog test) certified as an "emotional therapy" dog so that he can get a break on the pet fee at his apartment and try to bring him to work. But he doesn't NEED the dog, he just wants it. Sigh.

    So let me start off with this before I get another rude answer. We've seen multiple vets, had surgery and spent all the money I can on this. I'm looking for any alternatives that might work because the vets advice has not worked. My dog has not eaten a real meal in 4 days. I THINK she realized her sedatives, pain pills and antibiotics were mixed in with her food and she stopped eating it. She still eats treats so I've been putting her pills in there now but she still won't eat. Even mixed with canned food. The doctor suggested feeding her chicken and what not but I used to put her pills in that as well and she won't eat it. She will ONLY eat treats. Another vet said she'd eat when she got hungry but this girl is 100 pounds and can't live off of 4 treats a day. How long will this go on? Any other suggestions? Please for the sake of my sanity do not talk down to me or shame me. I've exhausted all other options I can think of and I've worked in the veterinarian field for 4 years. I'm not an idiot and I'm not just posting on YA for no reason. I don't know what else to do and need some alternative options. Thank you.

  • Are there any illnesses a dog can pick from KILLING a mouse and not eating it?

    My 3 year old 15 pound schipperke mix has killed 3 already in the last 2 days. All of them so far have been baby mice. I don t use poisons in my home to control them. I can t find any evidence that she has been bitten herself, so I m hoping no rabies.
