PLEASE READ BEFORE SUBMITTING TO ME: I am NOT a vet and do NOT diagnose diseases. That is only for a licensed Veterinarian to do. I will give you suggestions and steer you toward calling your vet for help. You can call the vet's office and talk to the technician there or the vet at times. Don't be afraid to call them! If you have a serious issue with your pet please post it to one of the veterinarians in here- I will tell you the same thing in my answer. IF your pet is injured or in an emergency situation, CALL YOUR VET- Do not wait and post in here. Just call the vet's office and get them in to see the vet right away. Critical treatment time is lost if you seek answers here when you should have your precious pet at the vets!! Don't sit at home waiting for an answer when your pet is critically ill or injured!! I can answer most questions about small animal and wildlife care as well as small animal nutrition. I can also answer questions about all phases of dental care for small animals. I DO NOT answer questions about birds .....

I can give you the holistic approach to any problem, mostly for dogs and cats and some farm animals and horses. Depending on the condition and the type of animal, I will be able to give very specific treatment suggestions such as what flower essences, homeopathic remedies, nutritional supplements, diet changes, lifestyle changes or herbs that may be helpful - not drugs. I can also suggest where you can go for further education or to find a specialist in a specific holistic field. I can help you understand why your animal is ill and what improvements can be expected. I do not check messages more than every one to two days, so PLEASE DO NOT ask about EMERGENCIES - call your local veterinarian. I cannot diagnose your animal. I cannot prescribe specific treatments. I am no longer very current with conventional treatments, so cannot answer questions on those. I am not an expert on birds or small critters. I am not an expert in breeding, birthing or babies.

2017-02-12 cat had pyometra:

It is uncommon in cats, but so is pyometra.   If your vet knows the problem then they are best at treating it.     The problem is that there are not many medications that are safe for cats to fix this

2017-02-07 Birth disabilities in Pets.:

Yes, there can. Nutrition and breeding are the main causes.    Bad nutrition, badly selected parents of the litters and of course if the mother is given drugs that can cause birth defects during pregnancy

2017-02-05 grain free dog food and more stool:

The bad news - there is no one right diet for any dog, cat or person.   The good news - just as for a person the best diet for dogs is a variety of fresh food, hopefully from a local farmer or farmer's

2017-02-04 Boykin Spaniel:

For tonight, if you check this, make water as warm as your fingers (not wrist),  dip in a clean rag and hold it over the anus for 10 minutes, re-heating as it cools by dipping in the hot water. do this

2017-02-02 Ear Infection In GS (7years old) Adult Male Dog:

Sometimes it is not the selection of the correct remedy, but rather the correct potency and frequency along with proper evaluation of cure, palliation or suppression.  Because you have tried so many remedies
