  • Why won’t my dog leave his poop alone?

    I try my best to pick it up as soon as possible, but sometimes he’s too quick for me. I am looking for suggestions on how to teach him not to do it or ways to prevent this besides picking up ASAP as that doesn’t always work.

    I try my best to pick it up as soon as possible, but sometimes he’s too quick for me. I am looking for suggestions on how to teach him not to do it or ways to prevent this besides picking up ASAP as that doesn’t always work. I’ve never ever screamed at him for pooping anywhere he’s always pooped outside anyway so I’m not sure why he started this nasty habit. Any advice is appreciated!

  • I'm getting very sick of cleaning poop and pee in my house because of these dogs I rescued. it is unreal and I feel they dont give a,****?

    they got a nice loving home and have issues from abuse. This is total bs. I might confine them to the laundry room, kitchen or our side but then they bark like crazy.

  • My dog has a broken leg?

    Best answer: Hopefully your dog is sensible and will try to avoid pain and not put too much stress on the leg. The main challenge might well be to have him leave the cast in peace, so he probably will have to wear a cone. Which might not be possible in crate. It really depends what your dog is used to when you leave the... show more
    Best answer: Hopefully your dog is sensible and will try to avoid pain and not put too much stress on the leg. The main challenge might well be to have him leave the cast in peace, so he probably will have to wear a cone. Which might not be possible in crate.

    It really depends what your dog is used to when you leave the house. If he normally is in a crate and happy there, put him into a crate. If he normally just sleeps around the house, you can leave him out. If your other dog is rambunctious and might play with him, keep them separated, it not you can leave them together. Do whatever keeps the dog most calm. If the dog is very energetic you could ask the vet to give the dog something like prozac to keep the dog calmer during the recover period, it might help.

    Generally I think as long as the dog is not in pain when resting to not give pain medication. You want some pain when the dog is putting to much stress on the broken leg as that is the way to keep the dog from doing it. Keep in mind that apparently tramadol is not a good pain killer for dogs, so if your vet is prescribing tramadol ask for something different:

    So discuss with the vet for how long you should give the dog pain killer. The dog will probably need it for the first few days, but maybe not much longer.

  • I can’t afford to reclaim my lost dog?

    I live in San Jose, CA. State law inquires that lost pets will be held for 6 days (excluding the day they were impounded). The shelter just closed, and now that makes 6 days. Is there a possibility that my dog will be put up for adoption? Because I don’t want to lose them. I’m probably the worst pet owner to... show more
    I live in San Jose, CA. State law inquires that lost pets will be held for 6 days (excluding the day they were impounded). The shelter just closed, and now that makes 6 days. Is there a possibility that my dog will be put up for adoption? Because I don’t want to lose them. I’m probably the worst pet owner to exist. I bought my dog some treats and a new toy on the same day they ran away. I gave him the treats... But he never got the toy. Sorry, I’m rambling. If my dog is put up for adoption... Is it more expensive or do I have a chance to get him back? I’m going to have more nightmares tonight. I’m very depressed. Now I’m diagnosed with insomnia and my eating has worsened. I’ll probably just try begging hard enough tomorrow when I go to the shelter... In hopes that I get my dog back. tl:dr the state time limit to get my dog has passed, what can I do?

  • Will my cat be okay?

    About five minutes ago I caught my cat licking a can that still had some chicken noodle juice in it. I checked the ingredients and there is some onion powder and garlic powder in the juice. She probably had gotten about five good licks of it in before I caught her on the kitchen counter. Will she be okay?

    Would you really call my baby girl a killer?

    Best answer: I prefer to blame the deed, not 'the breed' so as long as you just remember that this type of dog can suddenly turn, all should be well. I don't condemn Pit Bulls out of hand.

I DO their often stupid owners, along with BYBs who are producing overly aggressive Pit Bulls, because there is a market for them amongst a certain type of owner.

    Pit Bulls were put on the banned breed list in the UK after a series of injuries/deaths from this type of dog. It was purely a knee-jerk reaction on the part of the Government. Again it's usually HUMAN ERROR that allows such tragedies to occur.

  • 3 year old pug in pain?

    My pug is limping and can barely walk, he keeps barking and is afraid to go to sleep. He is also hiding from me in a corner of the room and isn’t moving, he’s just sitting and looks life less, I put his bed in his hiding place and he’s afraid to lay down. There aren’t any 24/7 vets near me. Please help

  • Need advice. Puppy is causing major stress. Stubborn. Doesnt listen. Hard to train. Runs out often etc?

    Best answer: If you had taken her to training what did they say about her lack of response?
    Just a thought, I had a Cavalier who was deaf, have you had her ears checked?
