As this unpleasant anniversary approaches, a friend suggested I focus on the season as a new beginning â€“ appropriate advice for spring. Kisses will always have a special place in our hearts, and the two cats who joined our family after her death are unique, irreplaceable gifts. Her legacy includes the information I gathered while working with our wonderful vet to prolong her life.

Question by Help: what happens to dogs who cannot get treatment for sarcoptic mange?
there was this street dog near my house who had sarcoptic mange..we called an animal shelter a while ago but the dog stoped coming near our home..is it dead or is it still itching..plz answer im very concerned
Answer by A Mom
There is no way of knowing about the mange without a skin scaping by the vet. Hopefully someone picked it up and got it to a vet. Keep an eye out, if you see it call a rescue, it’s what we do. If it is manage and it is not treated, secondary infections will set in. Just get rescues on the alert, so they can react if the dog comes back.

It pays to trust your instincts when it comes to taking care of your dog.
In February a woman from Indiana found her 10 year old dog was lethargic and dehydrated. She quickly took her to the vet where her condition worsened and she began to have seizures and going into cardiac arrest. Her Dog, Abbey soon died.She asked the vet if it could be the Pedigree dog food that she had been feeding her dog and the vet said that he didn’t theink it was the cause. Her Dog Abbey soon died.
Three weeks later she got a new puppy and fed her the same exact food. The same thing happened to the puppy and she was rushed to the vet. This time the vet listened when she told him she had fed her the same food and they immediately put her on IV’s and antibiotics. Fortunately the puppy recovered.
Later she found that the Pedigree dog food she had purchased in February at a discount store because she couldn’t find it any where else had actually been recalled in August the previous year.
She stated “If when they had a recall they just set a little tag out where the food used to sit on the shelf why its not on there I never would have bought this.”
The vet bill for her two dogs came to $ 1400

Question by Brandon Campbell: I have central heating and have a flea problem?
My issues is this, I have two cats, which i have treated for fleas with advantage (topical form) and they still have fleas! I’ve purchased a flea comb, and was about to buy some flea bombs when I noticed it said to turn off all pilot lights before using. My question is this, I have central heating, and the furnace is actually outside away from the house. Do I still need to turn off the pilot light to use the flea bomb?
Answer by T.J.
As long as the pilot light is not in the same room as the flea bomb you will not have a problem.
