Re: my beagle?

Poor Lucy. : ( Do her eyes seem swollen or larger than normal or just red? The main issues I've seen with dog eyes are cherry eye (when the third eyelid swells up), glaucoma (the eyes themselves swell), and cataracts. A lot of our older dogs have cataracts, and in some dogs it can start at a pretty ...

Re: Considering Arctic Fox

I don't have any personal experience either, but I did a lot of research on them a few years ago (I love foxes). There is a ton of conflicting information, like you said, but from my understanding, the most important thing to keep in mind is that arctic foxes do quite poorly in warm climates. It is ...

Re: my new duck

Usually, once our chickens got sick there was nothing we could do (though we tried). There are a few cases were something can be done to help, such as if it is sour crop or a "cold". If it is because they are old the best thing you can do is give them a warm, comfortable, quiet place where...

Re: my new duck

Aww, that's so sweet. I've heard about ducks getting along with other animals. My chickens were never that sweet, they tended to be bullies, but they were okay with cats and goats.

She had a wonderful life and was very loved.

Re: my beagle?

I think the steroids were so he wouldn't react to the stitches, but he did anyways, so they removed them early (they were the kind that dissolve, but they were getting infected). After the ones on his belly were removed he started doing much better.

Re: my beagle?

So glad Lucy is doing so well! Cinnamon is doing amazing! At first I was worried because he was panting, coughing, and, without the pain meds, seemed quite sore, but we think the panting was just his reaction to the steroids (he generally can't take them because they give him panic attacks). They ha...

Re: Why do some males hate females

It is likely just a coincidence that it happened twice to you. I volunteer at a shelter, work at a cat rescue, cat sit, and have owned a number of cats my self and some cats just don't like other cats (they can be quite the bullies). It doesn't seem too dependent on gender. Some male cats are bullie...

Re: my beagle?

Cinnamon made it through surgery! He is home, resting, and doing well! His brother made it 3 days after the surgery before he passed away, so I don't think I'll be able to relax until after 3 days. But so far so good!

Re: Donnie

Is he still using the bathroom? Some animals go in and out of the litter box when they are stopped up.

Re: Donnie

I work for a cat rescue where the vet will come to euthanize animals when its their time. It seems very nice as they can stay in their own environment and it is the least stressful as they don't need to be moved or anything.

Re: Donnie

I'm so sorry to hear that. That's always so hard. He may have reached his time, though old animals sometimes just have off days or off weeks. You could try checking for a "fixable" issue, like maybe its just a stomach ache? An animal in pain will be tense. You can often tell if they lie ve...

Re: my beagle?

How is Lucy doing? I hope the meds are working well.

Cinnamon went to the vet today and they confirmed a tumor in his spleen. He will be having a splenectomy May 9th. Nervous but hopeful; praying for a good outcome.
