Cats are at risk for some of the same ailments as humans, and glaucoma is no exception. The only difference is that glaucoma in cats is harder to treat. Too often, owners don’t realize something is wrong until it’s too late.
Some cats love to be rubbed all over, while others prefer to keep their distance. But if your feline friend is suffering from stress and anxiety, a gentle massage might be just what they need to calm down!
Considering whether or not to have your dog wear a diaper is never ideal. It can feel cruel, especially since few dogs love wearing them. Often, however, diapering your dog can increase their freedom and decrease the stress of your pet making messes they can’t control.
Cat owners usually don’t see anything wrong with their furry companions hunting mice in the backyard. After all, it’s what they do best! But many parasites lurk in the soil, including the dreaded warble.
Most commonly found in dogs that are eight years and older, Cushing’s disease is a condition that affects your aging pet’s pituitary and adrenal glands. Unfortunately, the symptoms are sometimes mistaken for regular signs of aging—but they can have much worse consequences.
The term “cat nap” came into being for a good reason. Kitties love to snooze on the couch all day, getting up only to munch on kibble, play with toys, or chase the occasional mouse. Unfortunately, many cat owners can’t tell the difference between a cat nap and lethargy. That, along with other symptoms, could signal your cat has been living with an ailment called anemia all this time.
The popular saying goes, “You are what you eat.” The same can be said for a puppy’s digestive system! Low-fat proteins and good bacteria lead to a healthy gut, while the opposite can have disastrous results on your pup’s health as they age.
Mange is a skin disease in dogs known for causing severe itching and bald patches along a dog’s body. The condition is caused by parasites known as mites that can infest and irritate your dog’s skin. Sadly, the symptoms of mange can be quite disturbing to see, especially when there are scabs and discolorations on the skin.
Cats come in all shapes and sizes. Just because your furry friend is a little larger than the kitty next door doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re overweight. Some cats are just a bit rounder than others, depending on their breed. However, monitoring your cat’s weight and body composition is an important part of maintaining their life-long health.
It’s late at night and you notice that your pet has vomited or is refusing to eat their food. If there’s no 24-hour vet clinic in your area, you may find yourself stressing out over your pet’s symptoms. But while certain symptoms are concerning, they don’t always signal an emergency.
