Firstly, I do not recommend instilling any drops or other medications into your dog's eyes until your vet examines the eye. If a corneal ulcer is present, many eye drops can make the problem extremely worse. That being said, there are a number of possible diagnoses from what you described. A condition called Proptosis is surprisingly common in Shih Tzus. This is a condition in which the eyeball l... more

Our cats have always been spayed/neutered. I'm currently geting a tribe of cats 'done' whose mother used to belong to a very  stupid someone living across the street. The mother cat was allowed to roam along with her unfixed male sibling with the expected result. That's being done by the local Animal Humane Society. Bot the city shelter and Animal Humane do free or very low cost spa... more

Seems like it is one of those things with lots of hype but really little to worry about as it is rarely fatal unless the dog has other health problems. I wrote this more

There may be a slim chance, but a change in behavior is a huge sign of illness.  It's best to take her to a vet and be sure.  Many illnesses are treatable if caught early enough. more

I would ask what food he is on. If there has been a food change it could be his diet, many cat foods use cheap filler, corn, wheat, by-products, and the cat's skin and coat can suffer as a result. He may have fleas, or lice, although as a declawed cat he probably does not go outside so this is not a strong possiblity.  It could also be seasonal, the dry air.   You can try brushing him, ... more

Adding to what Brenda said, the AKC has done many things in the past that show that they are not concerned about the health and wellbeing of dogs.  They support docking tails and cropping ears for the sake of fashion, even though many countries have banned these procedures.  The AKC also opposed several anti-puppy mill legistation, including those in my home state of Pennsylvania.&n... more

Do not just treat the problem - CURE IT! Very often hot spots are caused by ingredients in dog food. Shave the area if possible, you can wash it with oatmeal shampoo which does help reduce itching. Change the dogs food. If his food contains soy, beef, pork, wheat, or corn, very likely the food is the source of the problem - which is very much like an allergy. It will take a while to go away after ... more

Only your vet would know what they identified in your cat.  It would be on the cat's file at the vet and you could phone and ask.  You should make sure your cat only eats out of a stainless steel or ceramic bowl, plastic can contain bacteria so its best not to use plastic bowls as this could be related to the problem with your cats tongue. more

I have to disagree with Fontis the Perceiver.  Lots of frogs are poisonous.  The poison is in the skin of the frog and usually usually causes whatever tries it eat it to spit it out.  The poison may not be lethal, but it could definitely cause stomach upset.  You should try to identify the kind of frog and consult a vet.  Some frogs can kill a human being so it could be ve... more
