Snaggletooth kitty?

Feb. 25th, 2013 | 02:48 pm
posted by: nyssa in ask_me_anything

So I got a kitten about two weeks ago. Hooray! She's awesome, and my older cat loves her.

Ever since bringing the kitten home, my older cat has started letting one of her canine teeth stick out of her mouth, like a little snaggletoothy sneer. I've examined the tooth and it's not loose, irritated, inflamed, red, etc. It just...sticks out.

My best guess is that it's a show of dominance? Anybody else have any ideas? Google hasn't been very helpful.

I work in a pet store that adopts out homeless cats and dogs. Last spring I got a 12 week old rescue kitten, but within a month or so it became apparent that she has bowel issues. Long story short, sometimes she just poos on everything and seems to have no idea she's doing it.Collapse )

wet dog ears

Nov. 26th, 2012 | 01:42 pm
posted by: joospjos in ask_me_anything

My mum's dog (and the love of my life) is a English Springer Spaniel. He is a very active dog with very big ears and a lot of fur. Winter is almost here and I'm afraid that he will catch a cold because his ears are almost never completely dry. Another worry is that the dampness will cause a skin problem for him. I washed him yesterday and I spent ages trying to dry them (including putting socks on his ears to soak up the moisture). It is impossible to not get his ears wet: every time he follows a trail or pick up a stick they touch the ground. They dip into his water bowl when he drinks. He will get a fur trim on Wednesday so at least after that they will dry up a little quicker.

Do you have any ideas on how to keep his ears from getting wet or how to dry them up quicker?

shivering/reverse-sneezing in a brachycephalic dog

Nov. 19th, 2012 | 03:03 am
posted by: wristtattoos in ask_me_anything

Hey guys!

Doggie question here. I brought my pup out this morning to do her business. It was very cold, maybe about 28-32 degrees. She did her business and when she came inside she was violently shivering and reverse-sneezing. She's a Shih Tzu and about 10lbs. I scooped her up, bear hugged her and calmed her down pretty quickly.

Is it possible the reverse sneezing could be caused by the shivering... or would it be caused by her being freaked out by the shivering? This hasn't happened with her before and I felt so bad. She was very freaked out by the cold, which is understandable because she was born in the spring...she's not used to it yet.

I'm going to bring this up at the vet, and from now on we'll put her in a sweater when we bring her out when it was cold, but it was scary and she's still so little!

So my dad's coworker is going to be moving to Germany, and they might not be able to take their Rhodesian Ridgeback with them. Naturally, they've been asking around to see if anyone can take him.

Guys. Google is alternately telling me that these are the most energetic dogs EVAR and they must be in a state of near-constant exercising so they're not destroying the house and/or property, or that "yeah, an hour long brisk walk and you're good" (which we can do, we have a Jack Russell already). The dog is described as being 'mellow', but I don't know what that means in context. All I'm reasonably sure of is that he's an adult dog, not like, a puppy.

Does anybody here have any experience with Rhodesian Ridgebacks and their energy levels/maintenance needs?

Google is also telling me either "yeah, they're cool with cats" or "they will BITE THEM IN HALF", so any info on that would be nice too.

WWYD? Dog addition

Oct. 17th, 2012 | 04:39 pm
posted by: nosophobia in ask_me_anything

My brother got a puppy (Buddz, a boxer pitbull mix) a few months ago. Since he was a puppy and my mom was off work for the summer she agreed to watch him during the day when my brother was working with the understanding that when my mom return to work buddz should be ok to stay home.

My brother drops him off between 1-2pm every day and picks him up around 12am (but really was later most days). In general this sucks for Buddz as there's no consistency. My mom and brother went to training together every Sunday to be on the same wave length. Buddz now stays at our house multiple days/nights in a row because my brother simply finds excuses not to come get him, and when he does get him the following day when buddz returns he acts like a wild animal jumping all over the furniture, biting and growling at us, not listening etc...

Side note: my brother is a pig and has garbage all over his house. When he got buddz my mom went and cleaned his house (taking out 20+ bags of garbage). A few times she has brought the dog back to his house to give my cats a break and has seen the living conditions. She speaks to my brother and he cleans it, only for it to be worst the next time she checks.
She went over today, since buddz was there last night and there was pee/poo all over the floor and the heat was blasting.

She told my brother that if he can't get his act together he needs to find a new home for the dog. I don't think my brother will find a new home for the dog, and will lie to my mom an say he did and the dog will live in filth. If he does find a new home for him I worry that he will act nuts and they will take him to the humane society where he will be put down.

My family did not sign up for a dog, and while we like the dog we really don't want one but neither of these outcomes are desirable. WHAT DO WE DO?!

So while I was at college not even a month into the school year, my mom and sister decided to get rid of my kitty due to flea problems. My sister was apparently going nuts, washing her hair with dishsoap and being paranoid that fleas were crawling all over her. They took her to the humane society as a stray - a fucking stray. When I called to find out if there was any way I could get her back, they told me she was put to sleep. I've had her for four years, and knowing that I have to go home now to not having her there makes me want to vomit.

Am I wrong to be completely furious about this?!

I adopted a three year old cat from the shelter and also took in a five month old kitten that I got from my fiancé's parents. They get along great, playing, snuggling each other, etc. They share the litter box but the problem is that my older cat now won't cover his poop. The older cat is very docile, sweet and not at all aggressive towards me or the kitten. What gives? Can I get him to cover his poo? They are both males.

I have a Persian cat and he has a hairball problem. I give him a lion cut during the summer to keep him from overheating, but he is still constantly coughing up hairballs. It's uncomfortable for him and a pain in the ass for me. I bought this gel to put on his arm so he can lick it off and it's supposed to help. But instead of licking it off he jerks his arm until it flies out to stick on the wall or furniture and walks off in a huff.

Have you ever used a hairball prevention medication that's worked for you and your cat?

Choke Collar

Jun. 5th, 2012 | 02:07 pm
posted by: the_voyage_out in ask_me_anything

A question for dog owners.

I just brought a dog into my life. His name is Bruno, he's just over one year old, and I'd estimate he weighs about 25 pounds. He's a mix between a boston terrier and a beagle. His previous owner got him as a rescue, but she's just had a baby and can't take care of him anymore. Bruno spent the day with me yesterday and is moving in with me permanently later today.

His previous owner gave me a nylon choke collar to use while walking him. She is a vet tech and claimed that, despite appearances, the choke collar is humane and has a "corrective" function. Still, to me it looks very uncomfortable. I don't know if I should go on what his previous owner said; she lives on a farm and usually just let Bruno run free (instead of taking him for walks). He's really not used to any collar, let alone a choke collar. While he's a very obedient dog on whole, he got distracted very easily when I walked him yesterday. He wanted to stop and study everything; I had to pull on his leash a lot to get him going. I've googled choke collars and found a lot of conflicting information. I'm hoping some of you with more dog experience can shed some light on how humane choke collars are.

Should I keep using the choke collar, or invest in something like a harness instead?

EDIT: Thanks for all the replies! After asking down at my local pet store, I've decided I'm definitely not comfortable using the choke collar. Going to get a gentle leader for Bruno instead.

My cat ran away last month.  It's now been five weeks since I've seen him and I've been devastated.
I'm NOT asking for advice on how to find him.  I've done literally everything I can do.  Exhausted all efforts and such. 

I have another cat to whom he was close for the past seven years.  Will they pick up right where they left off in the off chance that I do find him and bring him home or will it be like reintroducing a new animal?

Has anyone had any experience with this?     

ETA: I got him back today and haven't been happier.  But the one who stayed behind has been a cranky bastard, hissing and swatting at him. 
I'm gonna give them some time.  Thank you so much for all the advice.

In the morning, when I'm on the toilet doing what comes naturally, my ginger cat insists on cuddles. He puts his paw on my knee and asks to come up. Then he jumps up and if I don't catch him, he'll fall right off. It's the ONLY time he won't use claws.

And then he wants to be held and scritched and to have kisses and I'm pretty sure he admires himself in the mirror while he's getting loves from his captive human. If I'm taking very long about my business, he'll drape himself over my shoulder, become Warm Liquid Purr, and go to sleep.

Have you ever gone on an interview to pet sit at someone's home? What did you wear?

I have an interview tonight to watch two dogs for a few days next month. I'd be staying in the lady's house to watch the dogs and she's had bad experiences with dog sitters before. She's interviewing a girl before me, although she did say that I have the best qualifications so far (I have four dogs, one of who was abused before he got to us, I volunteered in a no kill animal shelter for two years, and I currently volunteer at an animal hospital). I'll be leaving straight from my bus stop tomorrow and it's about an hour or so drive away so I may or may not have time to change beforehand. I'm planning on wearing sweats to school and the only pair of shoes I have that can get dirty, which are literally falling apart. I know I should change the shoes but what about the sweats?

Er, my finished basement apparently has mice. My roommate saw one, then I saw (the same?) one about a half hour later. He was little and adorable and not really scared of people so I caught him and put him outside though it's rainy so he'll probably come back in.

ANYWAY, my question is: has anyone used those sonic mouse repellants successfully? And don't they annoy the crap out of pets too if they do work? :(

My roommate had a cat down there until he died about six weeks ago so we're thinking that's what kept them away until now.

post-mortem flopping

May. 15th, 2012 | 08:15 pm
posted by: joospjos in ask_me_anything

I've been doing some googling but haven't found a definitive answer.

Why does some fishes move after death?

I know some animals, like chicken, can "survive" being decapitated because the brain stem is still functioning. This also seems to be the case with babies with anencephaly... and squids supposedly move after death if you pour salt on them due to some nerve thing. I've seen fishes with their heads severed from their bodies flop around while their heads "breath"... I guess it's some muscle spasm since the brain stem shouldn't be able to control both the (severed) head and body after death.

AMA,

what kind of pets do you have?

why did you get that/those pets in particular?

what did you name your pets?

why did you name them that?


Prompted by someone looking at me like I was the most ridiculous person on earth for naming my pets as I did.
We have a leopard gecko we rescued that was just begging to be called Mayor Adam West. He hides in his cave and doesn't come out till he thinks no one's watching. *G* I swear if he could he'd sing to himself as he waits till everyone's gone. At least, I think so.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHT6Qr1lT2U

We also have a ball python we had to rescue from bad people. Made me so sad to see him and the first thing that came to mind was Imotep from the movie The Mummy . . . (cause the chick abandons him in the end?) anyway, after thinking about it, we named him High Priest Imotep.
We call the gecko Adam for short and the snake Imotep unless they're being introduced to someone. LOL!

I never actually wanted reptiles but my husband got Adam for me as an engamement gift and Imotep as a Christmas gift. How... sweet!(?)

I'm trying to convince my boyfriend to neuter his 3 year old male corgi sometime in the next two months when I get my 7 year old female shihtzu spayed and also fix her umbilical hernia (finally saved up the $$$ to do it yay!). The corgi can be a sweet dog, but he has dominance issues with humans and other dogs, is overly vocal and has snapped at me several times. He is very protective and jealous. His alpha complex ranges anywhere from getting agitated when my dog is fed before he is, to barking and growling if a door is closed and he's not allowed to enter a room before others. I've brought this up to BF several times and he knows his dog has a problem, but training is not working. After I told him that the dog scares me when he snaps and tries to bite me, BF finally agreed to go with me and talk to my vet about neutering but he is not completely sold.

How can I convince BF that he needs to get his dog's nuts cut off?

BF's reasons for not neutering: Dog is AKC registered out of working ranch dog parents and can be bred; Dog will know his nuts are off and be bitter about it; Dog's aggression will not get better; Dog won't be whole; It's mean to cut his nuts off; He will harbor a grudge against BF for neutering him.

My two-year-old cat has recently started fighting with herself. She's previously down silly things, like chase her tail, but in the past couple of days she has started to violently attack herself. This morning I woke up to her howling and hissing. At first I thought there was another cat in the house, but instead I found her biting her own back legs and tail.

Should I be concerned? The last time I had a cat do this, he was blind and couldn't figure out it was his own tail brushing his nose. As soon as he bit down, though, he stopped. Schrodie, though, keeps fighting.

ETA - it's not fleas. She's an indoor cat and we have no fleas.

This happened to me yesterday on my way home from a walk. I was so tired, hot, and ready to be home.

So, we just got "the news" regarding my cat. This is a follow-up to an earlier post about my sick kitty.

It appears he has an enlarged heart. I'm not quite certain what that means for him. There isn't a vet in my state that has this sort of specialty so they've sent the medical records up to a vet in Washington to give us a treatment plan.

Has anyone dealt with an enlarged heart in a cat? He's 3 or 4 years old. Is this something that'll kill him in the upcoming months? What are the "life expectancies" for this sort of thing? Is this something he can have a good quality of life from? Obviously, since he's sick, it won't be perfect but... I do really care about quality of life, though.

I know "enlarged heart" is next to nothing in terms of information but that's all they gave us. =X We'll know more later but I kind of want to know NAO. XD

I just learned my cat has a 10% chance to survive through the night. The vet didn't even think he would survive the trip from one vet hospital to another. I'm trying to think positive. He was a rescue kitten; I found him thrown away in a trashcan, apparently for the entirey of a winter night so he's tough.

Is this a stupid reason to want to get drunk?

What species of wild animal do you see most often where you live? (And where do you live, by the way, for reference?)

Our cat boy Poppy has always had the quietest little purr although he is a very tall fellow.
Tonight he did this thing that sounded like he has a very bad cold. I went to comfort him and stroked him and suddenly he now has this big loud purr!!!
We are thrilled and amazed - and did I mention thrilled.
But seriously WTF??
