My cat has a history of peeing blood when she’s stressed. This time it’s been going on for a long time. Being picked up stresses her majorly. I’m contacting a house-call vet to come out and visit her but I wondered if anyone else has had a cat with the same problems.

About three years ago my 2 year old King Charles Spaniel was diagnosed with fungus on his skin. At the time my vet told me to bath him in betadine, leaving on his skin for 5 minutes before shampooing him off and that seemed to help for a little while. Next I tried an antifungal cream which also helped but smelled TERRIBLE. I’ve taken him to a specialist who gave me some wipes and other medication for the condition, but nothing seems to get a good handle on this reoccurring problem.

Okay kind of a long story- i have a two year old neutered male cat. I have a male and female from the same litter and they have been inside since we got them at 6 weeks old.

His problem is he runs through the house defecating . He will leave the litterbox from urinating and run full blast through the house pooping. I

In today’s economy it’s the rare business that can claim to be unaffected by the downturn.

Pet owners are part of this and have been reacting accordingly by holding their purse strings a bit tighter. And even those pet owners who aren’t personally seeing their income shrink ARE being affected by the uncertainty for the future. There is a LOT of bad news out there anywhere you look.

Face it, most people just don’t have the same level of disposable income they once did and most feel

French study says dogs can detect prostate cancer
There is new research that suggests dogs can sniff out signs of prostate cancer in human urine.

The lead author of this latest study said the findings are promising and could lead to better cancer-sensing technology.
