• Is the vet double-charging me?

    On December 2nd, 2017, I took my pup to the vet for her very first check-up. She got her rabies shot, a pill for fleas, and we were told that we had to come back on the 28th so she could get the 3 other shots she needed. We were told we paid for everything up in the first billing, which I paid in full. The bill looked like this: 12/2/2017 PUPPY/KITTEN EXAM - $53.00 DHPP VACC - $29.50 LEPTO 4WAY VACC FIRST - $30.00 LYME DISEASE VACC FIRST - $44.50 RABIES VACC - 1 YR - $25.50 BIOHAZARD MEDICAL WASTE FEE - $4.00 DRONTAL PLUS 45 LBS AND GREATER - $48.75 Total: $235.25 I have the 'receipt' that shows I paid the $235.25 in full, and my bank statement shows the transaction was processed on 12/04/2017. Now like I said, on the first day she ONLY got the one rabies vaccination. They had us come back on the 28th so she could be given the DHPP, the Lepto and the Lyme shot. Since everything was paid in full, we were allowed to just leave on that day. However, a bit ago we received a letter saying that we still owed them for the 3 shots she got on the 28th. On the most recent letter, it was hand-written that if they don't get a payment and turn it over to a debt collector, we won't be able to pay it unless we pay it in full. Now, they're charging us for the DHPP ($29.50), the Lepto ($30.00) and the Lyme ($44.50). The first letter about this 'remaining payment' said $104 was due (which would be the total of the 3 amounts added up). Am I missing something here about how vets do payments?

  • Help. My dog's vet can't fit her in for two weeks. Is there something seriously wrong with my dog?

    She's 16. She's a terrier mutt, maybe a foot or so tall from the floor to the top of her head. She used to be a little chunky, but over the past couple years she's gotten bone skinny.

    She's 16. She's a terrier mutt, maybe a foot or so tall from the floor to the top of her head. She used to be a little chunky, but over the past couple years she's gotten bone skinny. She's also become diabetic, so she drinks, drinks, drinks, drinks, drinks--like seriously crazy amounts of water. Anyway, over the last two days, she's stopped eating and drinking. She doesn't show any signs of distress, though. She's energetic and still runs around and does her thing. The only thing that's different is she's not eating or drinking. She goes to her food bowl, looks into it like she's going to, but then it's like she decides not to. The weirder thing is the drinking. She never not drinks. I know she's super old, but do you think she maybe just has a stomach bug or something like that. Or is this a sign that she's about to die?!?!

  • Is leaving a cat outside most of the day considered neglect?

    I think they take it in when they get home after a 9-5, and it looks fat enough. But it just sits by the door all day.

    So I’ve had a husky for 7 months and since we’ve gotten him he’s always destroyed everything. And he recently he had surgery because he ate something that caused bloackage which was something he destroyed. Before everyone would always say it was because he was pup but now he’s almost 8 months old he’s I. Training class but he’s still destroying everything!! His vet said to take him out because he’s probably bored so we started walking him 3 times a day and 1 and a half hour at the dog park. But guess what he’s still destroying things even if we leave it out of his reach he always finds something. We’re just scared he’s going to eat something agai. And need surgery again cause it moa something we can afford on a monthly basis he just had one last motn. Any tips?

    My boyfriend loves his cat. Sometimes, I feel as though he loves her more than me. When I met him, I knew he had a cat which was kind of a turn off because I don’t like cats at all. (I’m ALLERGIC to cats) but I did not let my strong dislike for his cat come in between and here we are with a 2 month old daughter not too long after but the problem is my daughter is also allergic to his cat and now i am forced to address the problem. We do not live together and we had plans on living together but now I’m not looking forward to it because of his cat. She sheds too much. I do not want hair all over my apartment. Her litterbox is gross! I don’t want it in my apartment. Lastly, My daughter and are allergic and she is breaking out from being around it when she is with her dad. I ended up just suggesting that we continue to live separately due to the cat. I don’t want him to have to give up the cat and hate me but i cant even stand to live with it. Am I being over dramatic? Or did I make the right decision to suggest that we coninue to live separately? I eventually want us to get married but the cat will have to go if we live together. I feel bad but mine and my daughter’s health are more important than his pet. Please share any comments or suggestions.

  • What supplements should I give my dog who only eats chicken and rice?

    Our border collie has super sensitive stomach. We can only feed her rice and chicken breast. Otherwise, she gets major diarrhea.

Our doctor said we need to reintroduce her to dog food or she won’t get enough nutrients. We tried but it’s always horrible. Our dog is in great shape and passed her physical exam like she catches frisbee. However, we’re not sure if vitamins and probiotics are enough to give her proper nutrition. Any recommendation?

  • Why are small dogs too yappy and annoying?

    Pomeranians, Maltese, Yorkies, Bichons, etc. They seem too excited to see people! They’re like cotton balls that follow you around and never leave you alone. Not all are, but MOST so far. I stay far away from them, but occasionally you get little dogs come right up and sniff.

    My cat is almost a year old. Ever since he was a kitten he has been spraying. I got him neutered at 6 months and it STILL has not stopped. I have tried vinegar and baking soda, cat urine sprays, vet visits. the vet says nothing is wrong and that it is behavioral. I really love this cat but I cannot take this anymore. it would be different if I was in a house because I wouldn't have a landlord to worry about. I alrady lost my security deposit because of this. I explained my issue to my landlord and he says since nothing else is working to rip the carpet up since its 40 year old carpet anyway. so I started ripping the carpet up. I have two litter boxes for him that I clean twice a day. Like I said I love my cat but I also have 2 children and this is not sanitary. not to mention I lost my deposit cause of this cat. would it be wrong to give the little guy away to another family? I'm considering giving it a few weeks without the carpet on to see if there is any improvement since the smell will be gone and he wont repeat in the same spot. its the entire living room carpet. anyone had this issue? what did you do about it? did you get rid of the cat? or did something else work?
