• Husband diagnosed with cerebral aneurism that hasn't ruptured. What can we expect?

  • Can a cat's testicles grow back after being neutered?

    I swear my 8 month old kittens testicles grew back after his fix. I've heard this is possible, but never from any credible source. Also, my husband is of the opinion that if he managed to grow them back, he deserves to keep them.

  • Causes for a dog being extremely itchy?

Although a friends puppy did just come over for a play date a couple days ago. My initial thought was it was dry skin as it is VERY cold here and the furnace is always running, but the amount of discomfort he seems to be experiencing seems beyond that.

It sure would save a bunch of money that could be used for the child.

His sight doesn't seem to be affected and he seems totally normal aside from looking like he's trying out for a part in Twilight or something. I've made a vet appointment for Monday, even the vet said she's no idea why that would happen so suddenly. Anyone have any thought or experiences? He's about 6 and a pug/terrier/Chihuahua mix who's normally healthy and up to date on all shots, heartworm, etc.

  • How do you maintain a backyard composter?

    My mother-in-law gave me a composter for my back yard and set it up for me but didn't give me any further instruction. Do you need to do anything to maintain it? Do you have to stir the contents every so often, or do you just throw your yard clippings and veg waste in there and it does it's own thing?

  • What's the best way to cook deer steaks (wild)?

    A friend of mine gave me wild deer steaks. Any tips on the best methods of cooking or marinades? I've done elk before, is it similar? Also, it gets dark here at about 4:00, so something aside from grilling would be preferable.

The last few weeks though, I've been noticing that she doesn't control her peeing while she is sleeping or really relaxed. She has no problems controlling it any other time and was completely housebroken when we got her. Does anyone know what could be wrong? My husband thinks she may be having a growth spurt and can't control it, just like a child...which makes sense, but I don't want to ignore some underlying problem...and I am getting sick of washing by bedding every second day....
