• What can I feed my dog?

    Buddy is a 9 yr old mini-greyhound. I gave him last night what was, due to my poor time and money management, the last of his food.

I usually re-up before he completely runs out, but this is a rare occasion, and like the first time this happened. I'm getting him some more today, but I'm stuck riding buses and the next one doesn't come for an hour. it's almost 2 and he hasn't eaten anything. I'm sur ewhe'll be fine to go hungry until then, but I can tell he's hungry now. I never really feed people, so i'm wary. Can he eat a few slices of bread?

  • Should people rant to others over buying pets?

    When I was on a trip to Canada, I saw a family talking to their daughter about buying a puppy outside the pet store. Someone overheard them, stomped over, and gave them a rant about it. She told the family that they were killing dogs, and they're teaching their daughter that it's okay too. The girl looked... show more
    When I was on a trip to Canada, I saw a family talking to their daughter about buying a puppy outside the pet store. Someone overheard them, stomped over, and gave them a rant about it. She told the family that they were killing dogs, and they're teaching their daughter that it's okay too. The girl looked somewhere between 12-16 and was telling her parents to stop arguing and get inside the store. The family later on went in, and the woman walked away. Should you talk to strangers about it if you see them talking about buying a dog instead of getting a shelter one - or should you leave them alone?

  • My dog ate glass?

    Best answer: Your parents have the same responsibility to the dog as they do you. It is against the law to not provide proper Vet care to a sick or injured dog. So they have to find a way to get the dog seen by a Vet. If you don't get her to a Vet the glass will cut into throat & not stop cutting & traveling all... show more
    Best answer: Your parents have the same responsibility to the dog as they do you. It is against the law to not provide proper Vet care to a sick or injured dog. So they have to find a way to get the dog seen by a Vet.

    If you don't get her to a Vet the glass will cut into throat & not stop cutting & traveling all the way to the other end. but it cut into something very serious & could die before it reached the other end. She would have massive bleeding internally & in severe pain. & you get to sit & watch all this happen. With the possibility of someone reporting you for not providing proper Vet care.

    She has to see a Vet. Your parents have to find a way. They have no excuse. This is something you should not be worrying about, it is not your responsibility, that belongs to your parents. If they cannot be responsible dog owners, they shouldn't have gotten this dog.

    If your family qualifies as low income, they can go to a low cost vet clinic.
    They can get CareCredit Vet, get the bill paid & pay them back in monthly payments. Vets won't do that any more. I had to use CareCredit & it was easy.
    There are ways to get this dog some emergency vet care.
    If they give a damn about this dog, they will get her to a Vet.

  • My dog just ate a raw boneless chicken breast?

    I dropped a piece in the floor and threw it away and my dog got in the trash when I stepped outside for a second. She's a 2 year old, 60 lbs, pit/husky mix. Is there signs I should watch out for or is this not harmful to her? Thanks for any genuine answers.

  • If your dog is an emotional support dog, do you still have to pay a pet deposit to keep him in an apartment?

    I was diagnosed with depression and recently got a German Shepard. She is not an emotional support dog but I got her so she can take my mind off depression.

Can I certify her as my ESA and not have to pay to keep her in an apartment. I'm looking to move out of my parents house and I would like to take her with me, seeing as I got her for my depression, and paying an extra fee would hurt my bank account at the moment. Thanks.

  • Would it be best to get rid of my dog?

    Best answer: Consider, you have a very high octane dog that needs LOTS of exercise and play time, LOTS. If giving the dog this play time is just beyond you, it would be in the best interest to give up the dog. You should have considered this before taking on a dog, Poor thing has been through enough stress in its life. This is... show more

    If giving the dog this play time is just beyond you, it would be in the best interest to give up the dog.
    You should have considered this before taking on a dog, Poor thing has been through enough stress in its life.
    This is not the dogs downfall, it is innocent in all this and only needs love in its life.
    Obedience training is a very good idea with any dog unless you have had a decent background training dogs.
    Personally, I would change what is needed to accommodate the dog. Otherwise return it and give careful consideration to any future dogs.
    Even a spaniel or terrier will have similar needs.

  • Is it better to adopt puppies or older dogs?

    Children and teens would probably love puppies more because they're just so adorable. Besides that, you can keep them for much longer and be there for them since they were babies. However they are a lot of work, and you'd need to spend more time with them than with an older dog. An older dog won't live... show more
    Children and teens would probably love puppies more because they're just so adorable. Besides that, you can keep them for much longer and be there for them since they were babies. However they are a lot of work, and you'd need to spend more time with them than with an older dog. An older dog won't live as long, and sometimes they've been abused, abandoned, or have had horrible things happen to them. Puppies can also experience these problems, but older dogs could've been abused for much longer (maybe even their whole lives!). That means that it may result to violent, inappropriate behaviors just like abused/neglected children. They're more likely to be more trained and such. Which one should I get?

  • Would you tell this guy off . I kinda want to?

    Best answer: I'm sorry this happened. We really need to find someone competent to watch our pets when we go away. This person obviously was not. Doesn't sound like they know much about animals or dogs, either.

  • What can I do to make my dog more comfortable around strangers?

    My wife and I adopted a dog about a year ago and he always has been fine around us and people he sees regularly.

    My wife and I adopted a dog about a year ago and he always has been fine around us and people he sees regularly. However, a few months ago we have noticed that if we have people over or if we are walking him and someone comes close to him, he starts to bark almost uncontrollably and we pull him away immediately. We would like to be able to have out around friends and family but we're nervous that he may bite someone. We're not sure if this is aggression, fear or something else. He is a boxer/border collie mix and about 15 months old. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

When theyre over,we shoo her out and she isnt allowed to join any games or even sit with us. I told her to get off my bed-sheets because its gross for dogs to sit where you sleep. And its annoying how shes the first thing i see when i get home!!! Shes so annoying like a little bratty sister! Btw shes a white maltese, i didnt know they would be so annoying. I try not to give her any attention at all so she'll get the message. But whenever i shun her or dont let her do anything with me, she'll just make weird whining high pitched noises! She makes that noise every-time and will eventually go away

  • Is a collie a good dog breed?

    It needs to be able to be laid back at relaxed when im gone, or sleeping, but it must also be willing to have the energy for tricks.

    It needs to be able to be laid back at relaxed when im gone, or sleeping, but it must also be willing to have the energy for tricks. Also a good guard dog, and can sense when someone is trying to hurt me. If it doesnt fit one of these characteristics, could a boxer or a husky be a good dog for these things, or maybe could you suggest a different breed if neither fit the characteristics? Oh, and it also must be able to live in an apartment? Ok thx

    Last night I scolded my dog for going in the trash while I was out which she knows is wrong. I scolded her then when I went to point for her to go away from the mess to clear it up she bit me. It never broke the skin it was more like a warning bite I would say. No growling or any signs I could see. I'm not sure if I did something to scare her I pointed and said what is this in a low voice. I out of instinct gave her a big shove and told her to go away in an angry voice. After about 10 15 mins I went back to her, asked for paw which she gave then she got affection. But since then she has been acting weird, not responding when I talk to her and she just wants to lie down. Not sure what to do moving forward
