We own 3 cats and this is the 4th we saved from the streets – we had her vet checked and she got a clean bill of health but the vet said she’s likely NOT to be neutered. With our 3 who are neutered, we’ve never seen them on heat. My question is how we know if Puddles (the new cat) is on heat – presently she’s been crying loudly and acting very strange – I just wanted to know if this is ‘normal’ or if she’s ill. Other than the crying and wanting to go out, she’s been active and playing and eating (seems to be off her food slightly).
We live in Denver, CO, in a very dry environment. All of our animals scratch themselves a lot, but my cat Lucy (5yo female Siamese mix neutered) has scratched behind her ears so much that she has broken the skin. A scab developed, and the wound was healing, but last night she went crazy and would not stop scratching. She broke the skin again. I wonder if you can recommend a solution to the problem? Is there something I can apply topically to help comfort her itching? Do I need to take her to the vet to get a cone put on her head? I was thinking of applying Neosporin, but I was hesitant to use a people medication on my cute little cat. Could you offer advice on what the best plan of attack would be to get her to stop scratching and let her ear heal?
My 9yo male neutered toy poodle has two problems, first he all of a sudden started drinking a lot of water and having to urinate a lot. This started two weeks ago. Second he is having a small amount of greenish yellow discharge out of the corner of one of his eyes. He has never had an eye infection. What could be wrong with him? Is he constipated?
