    How can I like my new dog more?

    My brother recently got a new Golden Retriever puppy, it is currently 9 weeks old. We have never had a dog before so it's all a bit confusing and difficult to process. He gets very hyper all of a sudden and sometimes he grabs our clothes with his teeth.

    We have trained him to "sit" so far but we're struggling to get him to understand the word "no." For example if he does something bad, it takes a few "nos" to get him to stop.

    I also hate the smell of him, I have never liked the smell of dogs and it stops me from wanting to play with him. I feel really guilty though because he's only a baby and he just wants to play. My parents are trying to get him into a routine but it's a slow process. Can anyone give me any tips?

    I really love the puppy, but it's just strange and I don't know how to feel most of the time.

    Can I train a highly energetic dog to settle down ?

    I have an almost three yr old Rat terrier. 

    She is highly energetic.  

    In the past,  she managed to annoy and cause a great deal of stress to a 7 yr old domestic  cat living with me at the time.

    The cat eventually went to go live with my mom.

    My question is: Can I bring a kitten into my home and have luck with training the dog to not chase after the cat?

    Dog name to match my cats name, Boaty?

    Hi all. I have a cat named Boaty. His name was the one the shelter gave him, and I thought it was too cute to change. I'm in the process of getting a husky puppy, and I wanted his name to match in a way with Boaty's! I was thinking Sailor, but that's my cousin's dog's name. Do you guys have any cute names like that?

    what’s wrong with my cats skin ?

    it’s located where her tail meets her lower back , she can’t reach there to lick so i don’t think it’s just irritation from too much licking . we have to use a wet wipe to wash her lower back . i shaved the area for now and am washing it out with water regularly to prevent infection . but does anyone know what this could be ? miliary dermatitis ?

    Pup 7 weeks old playing with mom and siblings became immobile. We took him to vet. He x-rayed, kept him a week for laser treatments. ?

    We took him to vet. They X-rayed him but found nothing conclusive. Vet wanted to keep him a week for laser treatments. He said mom could have fallen on him playing. I brought him home yesterday. I am continuing laser treatments as I have several LLLT lights. I’m  researching foods and supplements that may help. He is eating hard food; moving head a little odd at times. He wags his tail, eats and drinks. He is so sweet and loving. His brain is working well. We take him out to hold him up to potty. At night we put him on a soft bed with potty pad on top of it.  We have to leave water where he can move his head to get it. I read laser did not go through the hair so I cut his hair as close as I could from his neck down his spine. Any ideas would be helpful. I will NOT give up on him as long as he don’t give up. I do see a little improvement since we left him at vet but very little. Vet says he will get better or not. He is so young he could overcome.

    Why is my dog straining,shaking,vomiting,And not eating.How can I help him feel better?

    I’m so confused about what’s really wrong with my dog.He’s 7 years old turns 8 next month.He’s a pitbull he may be a mix people are always telling me that.I took him to a vet a month ago the veterinarian told me that he has a pernial hernia and that he needs surgery & has to be neutered.They told me surgery would be $2300 I agreed to this however on Tuesday he was vomiting  repeatedly after I gave Him a can of pedigree food twice because he didn’t want to eat his dried food.They told me in the emergency animal hospital that I took him to that he doesn’t have a hernia that he has an enlarged prostate with a lot of fluid inside.Ascites

    Sepsis ,Prostatitis Pus all around the prostate and in the prostate.That’s what they told me has.They told me he needs surgery or he’s going to die.I left him over night at the hospital and picked him up the next day before the 24 hours were up.I had to pay $3500.They told me that he needs surgery that’s going to cost $10,000-$13,000or he’s going to die.They also said that it’s a 50/50 chance that he’ll survive during the surgery or after.I don’t know what to do.He only ate rice and chicken this morning and he’s not acting his usual self.So what should I do to help my dog.I don’t want to lose him.He’s vomited yellow today ad clear .He’s doing a lot of pee but he keeps straining to poop. and he’s breathing heavily right now.He don’t come to the door anymore when I get home.I made an apportionment with another veterinarian for a third opinion.
