Cameron from Modesto, Calif., has Alice, a 2-year-old cat, sharing her apartment. It seems that Alice has begun a strange behavior recently. She spends a significant amount of time rolling around on the carpet and vocalizing quite loudly.
Jim Power, a licensed trainer of guide dogs for the blind from San Rafael, Calif., was visiting a crowded Southern California theme park a week ago when he spied "a 20-something lady ... with a Chihuahua on a leash." The small pooch wore a vest identifying it as a service dog.
There are many different choices of food at the pet store, and short of sampling them yourself, you're going to have to rely on your pet's feedback to learn whether or not the food is appealing. But because pets can't fill out a review, we grilled veterinarians to learn what you should be looking at when shopping for cat and dog food to make the best decision.
Best known as the "Dog Whisperer," Cesar Millan is a world-renowned dog trainer who came to the United States from Mexico as an illegal immigrant and became a celebrity training dogs for the rich and famous. He is the author of several best-selling books, including "Cesar's Way," "Be the Pack Leader" and "How to Raise the Perfect Dog." He also founded the Dog Psychology Center in California. The Millan Foundation rescues and supports abused and abandoned dogs.
This week we are going to discuss a problem concerning Petunia, the 12-year-old companion of Mark from Modesto, Calif. Petunia has lived with Mark since she was a little baby and has been in good health for her entire life.
Q: Our veterinarian told us our cat has cavities on three of her teeth, and that they must be pulled. This makes no sense: Clarabelle eats only cat food, not sweets, and does not seem to be in any pain. Please advise.
Q: Our Chihuahua needs to have her teeth cleaned annually, and our vet says she has so much tartar and so often needs a tooth pulled that she requires anesthesia. The older Daisy gets, the more we worry about this. Is there anything we can do to make things safer for her?
Q: Our dog ate rat poison the neighbor had used near the fence-line between our properties. She was unaware how toxic some of these poisons can be (and how far our dog’s snout could reach through the chain-link fence). Tippy survived, but only after intensive care for kidney failure. Could you let readers know how deadly these poisons are?
Q: When my dog Missy had a fever I gave her ibuprofen thinking it would help her feel better. Instead, she ended up in the ER with vomiting and blood in her stool. She’s OK now, but could you please let others know about this hazard?
