• My cat bit me.?

    About a month ago my cat bit me. My finger swelled up for about a week then it went down. My finger just now is starting to swell back up and it is painful. Any ideas as to why this might be happening? I don't have health insurance to see a doctor.

  • Are agility competitions for dogs cruel?

    We have a young border collie who is just starting out in agility training. He's super smart and he seems to really enjoy what we've done so far. He's doing really simple stuff right now, like running through tunnels, but it keeps him busy and happy. My mom wants to eventually, if he is really good at... show more
    We have a young border collie who is just starting out in agility training. He's super smart and he seems to really enjoy what we've done so far. He's doing really simple stuff right now, like running through tunnels, but it keeps him busy and happy. My mom wants to eventually, if he is really good at it, to enter him into competitions. I have no objection to him running courses for the sake of him running courses, but I don't know how I feel about him competing for a cash prize. Now, any money won would go directly to him in the sense that we'd buy him toys, treats, equipment, etc. We also won't push him if he really does not have any interest in it. Is it mean or wrong for him to be in competitions?

  • My dog won't listen to me Help?

    I have a female Pitbull, almost 2 years old. The problem here is that she doesn't treat us like we're her owners. She bears no respect. She runs away from home very often with our neighbour's stray dog. She retuns only to our neighbor because their dog comes back. When we get her back home she is usually scolded. I know we shouldn't do that but it's just how it comes. My father beat her twice back then and she has a guilty spot where she goes after we get her back. We tried approaching her in different ways: when she comes home we would reward her with food and stuff. But it doesn't work. And when we go on walks, she always stops midway and doesn't want to move. We call her. and try to get her up but she just won't move so we have to get her by force and when we return home after walks she goes back to her guilty spot with her tail hung low. It's very sad actually. She never listens to us. Although she is spoiled at home (we let her sleep on the couch, eat premium food and sometimes leftovers) she still doesn't love us like a dog should love their owner. I hope she isn't traumatized or anything. I truly love her. I need advices on how to help her. And giving her to a shelter or a more suited family is a no from the start. Help!

  • Is $2,000 a decent price for a one month old (all black) German Shepherd Puppy?

    Best answer: This is SO wrong I am just hoping you are trolling. So 1. You never buy the pup under 8 weeks old / 2 months. 2. You never ever ever meet somewhere to hand a pup over. The breeder should want to know all about you, your lifestyle, your experience and SEE where you live. 3 You don't have the... show more
    Best answer: This is SO wrong I am just hoping you are trolling.

    So 1. You never buy the pup under 8 weeks old / 2 months.
    2. You never ever ever meet somewhere to hand a pup over. The breeder should want to know all about you, your lifestyle, your experience and SEE where you live.
    3 You don't have the experience to deal with a German Shepherd if this is your first dog.
    4. $2000 would be for a TOP dog with a brilliant pedigree and with all parents health checked etc.
    5. Never buy any puppy that you are not seeing with the mother and in the home environment.

    Really hoping you are trolling, but if not then back to the research and start with some decent breeders of a breed you can handle as a first time owner.

  • I will have to leave my 10 week old puppy alone for 6 hours! What should I do?

    Best answer: I have a puppy too, he's a few weeks older and is a border collie (both herding dogs). When my family goes to work, we started confining him to the puppy proofed kitchen. He likes to chew the table so we got him a big, big crate (I can lie down in it with tons of room) where he has toys, water and a bed, and... show more
    Best answer: I have a puppy too, he's a few weeks older and is a border collie (both herding dogs). When my family goes to work, we started confining him to the puppy proofed kitchen. He likes to chew the table so we got him a big, big crate (I can lie down in it with tons of room) where he has toys, water and a bed, and also a corner for him to relieve himself, he rarely ever does unless we're running late. You can get a pen, or confine him to a place in the house that is safe. But you must walk him every morning before you go, make sure he goes potty, and walk and spend lots of time with him after work. I don't love crating my dog, but it's big and he's safe and he has lots of toys. Just make sure if you do do that, that he has access to water, but not necessarily food as he will likely poop. That is your choice. Make sure he eats before you leave though. Now if someone can check on him and let him out for a bit, that's all the better.

  • Why take your dog into the pet store?

    I m talking about stores like petco or petsmart, is there any actual reason for brining your dogs into these stores? I find it highly unlikely that all of these dogs are there for grooming, vet or kennel care or are there to actually sample the products. Do people do it just because they can?

    Best answer: All you need is a letter from your doctor, that is a mental health provider. Registration is not required and are all scams.

    If you want to fly with your dog you will need to check with your airline in advance

    This is for example from delta, notice nothing says the dog needs to be registered:

    Delta requires documentation* (not more than one year old) on letterhead from either a licensed medical or mental health professional to be presented to an agent upon check in stating:
    Title, address, license number** and jurisdiction (state/country it was issued), phone number, and signature of mental health professional.
    The passenger has a mental health related disability recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual - 4th Edition.
    That the passenger needs the emotional support or psychiatric service animal as an accommodation for air travel and/or for activity at the passenger's destination.
    That the person listed in the letter is under the care of the assessing physician or mental health professional.
    *Passengers may use a signed or stamped digital letter on their mobile device as long as the information can be verified (i.e. phone numbers, email addresses etc.)
    **Professional's license number is recommended.
    A kennel is not required for emotional support animals if they are fully trained and meet same requirements as a service animal.

    I got my puppy 3 weeks ago and her name is not growing on me yet but the thing is I've already told everybody her name would it be bad to change it even if she hasn't learned it yet?

  • How often should you feed a baby abandoned kitten?

    Best answer: Feed it three times a day. Breakfast lunch and dinner.
    If it's a baby kitten feed it formula every couple of hours. Once it's past the kitten formula stage you can move onto solid kitten food which should be given to the kitten 3 times a day.
