  • If I adopt a dog that has never been vaccinated, how do I catch them up on their vaccinations?

    Best answer: a grown dog does not have to have a series of 4 vaccines. Vaccinate one=ce and 4 weeks later vaccinate a second time and in a year one more time, and he should be good for 5 years. The reason to vaccinate puppies so often is because of what they call the maternal window of susceptibility. It's long and drawn... show more
    Best answer: a grown dog does not have to have a series of 4 vaccines. Vaccinate one=ce and 4 weeks later vaccinate a second time and in a year one more time, and he should be good for 5 years. The reason to vaccinate puppies so often is because of what they call the maternal window of susceptibility. It's long and drawn out basically because somewhere between 6 and 16 weeks is when the maternal antibodies wear off, and since every puppy is individual, there is no sure way to know when the mom's antibodies wear off so you vaccinate every 3 -4 weeks hoping that in that time frame, the vaccination antibodies aren't destroyed by Mom's antibodies. google it.

    hello, i’m really worried about my cat and im not sure if i should be taking her to emergency vet tonight, which i can’t really afford, or if i should just monitor her and call a vet tomorrow. she is only 6 years old and generally seems quite healthy and is an indoor only cat besides sitting on our balcony. she is on a wet food only diet. earlier today after she ate lunch she throw the entire serving up and has been hiding under my bed since. she has been laying under the bed a lot more often recently but i just thought it was to escape the heat. when i went to feed her dinner she would not come out and wouldnt come out for treats. i pulled her out after a bit to pet her but she ran right back. i just heard her puking again and it was only foamy liquid and as i was cleaning it i notice she had just had diarrhea in the litter box. then she went straight back under the bed. im super worried. i cant think of anything she may have ate accidentally. i dont know what to do

    Best answer: Thee are somany websites they have great information out there as well as a lot that have just as much misinformation. You need to do tons of reading and research, write down all the positives and then all the cons of each dog breed your considering.

    Our vet suggested that we visit a couple breeders of the breed we wanted and they in turn were able to answer more detailed questions about the dogs we were considering. There are no websites that I know of that post only the exact facts of each breed, just as there is no one dog food out there that is the best of the best and is that way for every dog. It’s all a matter of collecting the data and to see what works the best.

    Good luck in your search.

    My parents were out of town for 3 days and they told me to feed our 70 pound golden retriever 1 and 3/4 cups of food in the morning and at night. What they didn't tell me was that the size of the cup that was in the food bin was 2 cups. So for 6 meals i accidentally fed him twice the amount I was supposed to. On top of this, he barely got any exercise because it's been raining the last few days. Its an extraordinarily stupid mistake to make, and now I'm really worried that he could be at risk of pancreatitis or something like that. Will he be ok as long as he gets plenty of exercise over the next few days?

    I am trying to convince my parents into letting me get a puppy. But they say I can’t because my other dog before didn’t work out. The other dog, Zues, was a rescue dog that was a year and about four months when we got him. He didn’t get along with my other dogs and my parents always would tell me to put him in my room so they won’t fight. He was energetic and still acted like a little puppy while my older dogs were 6+7 and the older one acts like a puppy on a day to day basis. Long story short, he ended up leaving a little tooth mark on my oldest dog and we had to give him back to the shelter. (Couple hours later he was adopted again) So ever since that, they would blame me on the whole incident even though I was at school when it happened, and they were at home working so I had no control over it. I showed my parents how responsible I am with my other dogs, walking, feeding, brushing etc, and at school with my grades and homework so I don’t see why I don’t deserve to have a second chance with a much younger puppy, rather then having a older dog wanting to become alpha of the house. My other dogs are amazing with puppies and my neighbors dogs so I don’t see having another dog would be a problem, but it could be. What do you guys think? Do I deserve a second chance?

    Best answer: The main reason for seizures that cannot be explained by something else - like a head injury, brain tumor, illness or low blood sugar is is idiopathic epilepsy. Rather than going thru expensive testing or an MRI to say rule out a brain tumor (which are rare compared to epilepsy) your vet CAN choose to just put your dog on medication. My vet explained, the mediation will not stop or affect seizures caused by a brain tumor and is the cheapest & simplest way to rule that out.

    Follow the advice given; make video of any additional episodes, talk to your vet again to advise them how many seizures the dog has had, and/or get a second opinion from a specialty hospital or vet school, and talk to your breeder as well as making an effort to check out information on as much of the bloodline in your pedigree, as possible.

    In my personal experience (with idiopathic epilepsy) my vet TOLD ME that once any dog had two seizures WITHIN 10 days, they NEEDED to be on medication. You need to know there is a wide array (now) of medications and combinations that CAN work. And one medication may work for awhile, but may need either a additional med later or a different one to be used later.

    What you DO NOT WANT is a dog who gets into "cluster seizures" which can be one after another - basically NON STOP. These do BRAIN DAMAGE & can only be stopped by an EMERGENCY trip to a 24 hr vet office. That's why you want to get on mediation if your dog has already had two seizures, this close together.

    Your vet or the vet you end up using - if there is somebody in your area who specializes in the treatment of such dogs, may have to play with the STRENGTH of the medication. Too much and the dog is almost comatose, too little & the seizures come back.

    There is at least one OUTSTANDING site I always give people in your position who probably are just discovering they have a dog WITH epilepsy. It is intensive and large. You will find that there are a larger number of TYPES of seizures, than you had thought, and suggestions on how to help LIMIT them through changes in diet (even the use of filtered water) and suggestions on how to help the dog RECOVER, afterwards.

  • How to get the breed i want in a shelter?

    I want an expensive breed that is hard to find. But I want to adopt it fron a shelter because shelter prices are reasonable. NOT from a rescue.. Rescues charge breeder prices and are WAY to picky. I want to only adopt from a shelter. How to be sure I will find one, and soon?

I posted a tribute to her online and people just keep making hurtful comments. They said stuff like 'good riddance' 'how many children did she kill?' and 'I would've put a bullet in its head seventeen years ago.' Sasha never hurt anyone in her whole life. It hurts so much that people are like that.

    Everytime I take an animal to the vet for whatever kind of issue it costs way more than I thought it would. Last time my dog had a puffy swollen eye and it coated $200 for the exam, a florescent eye drop exam thing, antibiotics, and eyedrops which his eye ended up just being irritated so I'm not sure he even needed all that. The vet never tells me how much things will be until the end of the appointment! I don't have a lot of money but I make sure my animals have what they need at least. Now my other dog just started showing possible signs of kennel cough although he has been vaccinated. I'm making him an appointment but I'm scared it's going to cost a ton. Is there a way to get the vet to be up front about prices without sounding like a penny pincher?
