Short answer: you don't. Reason 1: nutritional needs. Dogs, just like humans, need a varied diet including the right amount of protein, fiber, fat, minerals, vitamins and other nutritions. Dogs evolved from wolves, who get their nutrition almost exclusively from animals they hunt. They evolved to extract nutrients from muscle meat, intestines, skin, ...

I’m really glad that you’ve stepped up to take care of this poor little thing but you must get her to a rescue center or an emergency vet asap. Newborn kittens can’t regulate their own body heat and rely on their mothers for that. Till the time you get her the medical help she needs, place her next to a soft toy of some sort with something warm in there. ...

It is impossible to know certainly but this could be Guillain-Barré Syndrome or some other auto-immune disease. It is unclear whether GBS is seen in cats, but autopsy results of two cats suffering from sudden paralysis were identical to those of humans suffered from GBS. Still, the range of auto-immune diseases is vast and we have less information about such ...

I'm very sorry about what happened to your cat. You did everything you could, but it's hard to not know what happened. The rear leg paralysis sound similar to something that happened to my parents' cat, an otherwise healthy 5-year old tabby. After having gone missing for a couple of days, my parents found him under a bush in front of the house, unable to ...

Wait until 3 - 3 and a half months before sending your little kitten off. He should be completely off his mother’s milk and should be able to walk and play already. Another thing is that teaching tricks should be done from kitten hood. When teaching tricks, make sure you award them by treats. If your friend has another pet, keep them away from the kitten ...

A UTI is a bacterial infection. While holding urine doesn’t necessarily cause a UTI, it will keep and build up any bacteria that have made their way into a urinary tract, if the urine is not released. Plus, it’s not healthy for a dog to be forced to hold its urine. It is important to take a puppy out to pee frequently because: Puppies need to pee more ...

@lila provided already a nice comment on the safety of eating yogurt. I will tell you about our experiences. We had one half Pekingese in the past, and another more-or-less Pekingese currently (we = my parents). The story is the same with both of them. My mother (their main caretaker) discovered that they like yogurt. For a few times, she provided them with ...
