My pug has been dragging her ass against the carpet for a while now and keeps scratching herself non stop.

Vet said it wasn't fleas or anything serious. He prescribed my dog a lotion for dermatitis, pills, and gave her a shot.

Hasn't worked and it's been a month

Any home remedies or something that works?
Is it a hot spot?

She also scratches her stomach/side so much that she is losing hair on that area and sometimes she makes her nipple bleed

This is what the vet prescribed but nothing happened....

What kind of food are you feeding her? Sounds like a food allergy. Also, it might help if you bathe her in oatmeal-based shampoo

Any reliable articles on torture breeding and the welfare of pugs/bulldogs/similar? I'm trying to write a paper about this shit, but I've only found a few reputable sources that I'd want to have under my belt while trying to prove a point. I know this definitely isn't the right place, but I know there's somebody on here who has too much free time and knows where I can find articles outside of blogspot.

Pedigree Exposed has linked some case studies and articles. You'll have to comb through the biased blog to find them. They recently did a whole month of looking through the pug's unhealthy structure.

Something else you should look into is reading up on what makes good structure in a dog, and then examining the breed standard itself! Breed-specific structural issues especially. Genetic diseases can be avoided, but things like short muzzles and excessive wrinkles are required and unhealthy.

There's an orange tabby I might be adopting. She's about a year old and her previous owners declawed all 4 paws, then got rid of her because they wanted a dog instead. The cat is super sweet and I plan to keep her indoors only (since she can't defend herself anyway), but I've never had a declawed cat before.

Do they have worse behavior issues or are more likely to bite?

When I was little my mom got me a kitten for my birthday and the first thing she did when I picked her up out of the box was go to town, destroying my neck so my mom had her declawed. She was always a feisty thing, even in old age. I did not notice a change in her personality she would still try to scratch me when she was pissed even though she hadn't had claws in years. She only bit very rarely.

The only problem we really had with her was that she would vomit all the time, like several times a week. Vet said that there wasn't anything wrong with her, she just...

declawed cats tend to be more aggressive and go straight to biting when in fear since they don't have their claws. I've noticed they tend to be much more shy as well, which makes sense considering their natural defense mechanism is gone

many vets also caution that declawed cats are prone to arthritis due to not stretching when scratching things to sharpen their claws like other cats do

additionally, they will sometimes be very picky about what litter they will and will not use because of how it feels on the mutulated paws, so finding a litter they like...

the only sure way to know is if it comes to you in a dream. but it has to be explicit, you have to be told "your spirit animal is the leather bear" etc.

Or you go to spirit animal camp and get assigned one.

My cat died. I didn't know what to do so I took him to the vet for cremation. I wish I didn't. I wish I washed him and trimmed his nails and shined his coat and bought a nice set of beads and put him in a basket with flowers and toys and out the basket on a raft and set it on fire and pushed it to burn until it sank at this really nice spot in the woods I run at. I wish I had. I was so devestated. I wish I printed his paw with ink and gotten it tattood on me where he would always knead me when I slept. I loved him so much. My sweet boy.

I could use some advice. 2 weeks ago we took my little buddy to the vet because he was breathing hard. He weighed 5lbs when we brought him in. They drained 3lbs of water from him and told us he has severe heart disease. It cost us $1800 plus $500 for the medicine. We have to give him 3 pills 2 times a day. It is difficult to give him the pills and he hates it. The doctor says he would have 3 months to live but his breathing is getting worse. My family said that I should be the one to make decisions regarding him because I am the closest to him. What should I do?

The fluid will vontinue to fill his body and this will cause breathing problems heart doesnt pump fast enough.

If fluid is not removed again. He will no longer beable to move and eventually stop breathing lungs are too much work for body use.

My grandfather let him "sleep in" when fluid removal was too often (heart weak) i think you will notice when its time.

I wish you prosperity

my cat died today too senpai.

He had urinary obstruction, and while the vet was washing his bladder he had a heart failure.

I was too fucking late.

He helped me go through depression. And right now was the worst possible moment he could've died, as I've had one of the worst weeks I've had in a fucking year.

I just feel like shit and drinking heavily to stop the pain.

I just loved him so fucking much. He was only 3 years old.
