    Help Needed! Afraid of kittens- low confidence

    Update: I've separated the kittens from Cricket, during the daytime... Theyre under close supervision when everyone has access to each other. Dobby hasn't bounced off Cricket's head today... she seemed slightly less tense (I do have the pheromone things plugged in- several throughout the...

    Help Needed! Afraid of kittens- low confidence

    My housemate got 2 kittens a couple of months ago. They're now 6 months old. Cricket is 5 1/2 years old. Cricket is afraid of them. One (Leia) pretty much ignores Cricket- the other one (Dobby) thinks it's fun to bounce off Cricket's head (no claws involved). The kittens are not aggressive...

    General Question Vulvoplasty and entropion surgery at the same time

    Hi- Sorry for not updating earlier- been a little hectic. :) I realized that by soaking her kibble in more water, she was staying hydrated. Took Cricket a couple of days to get back to her regular water habits- right around the same time she started self-soothing with her favorite plush toy...

    General Question Vulvoplasty and entropion surgery at the same time

    Hi- Cricket had her surgery yesterday- it went well. No major complications. However, she did regurgitate during surgery. They cleaned her up and the vet checked her lungs- no fluid... I have antibiotics, just in case. However, she hasn't been coughing or vomiting. They took out a lot more...

    General Question Vulvoplasty and entropion surgery at the same time

    Cricket's scheduled for a vulvoplasty, entropion surgery, and extraction of 2 loose teeth (front lower incisors- she doesn't use these) all at once. (I do not want to put Cricket under general anesthesia any more times than what's absolutely necessary.. she does have a bulldog specialist working...

    Yes- Cricket was stung by a bee 2 months ago. Went to an emergency vet and got a steroid shot. I gave her 2 Benadryl when we got home. she also had gotten a Rx for oral steroids (prednisone) ... the next afternoon, she started throwing up every 15 minutes, and couldn't stop... Went to see her...

    Daily poll: Does your bully watch TV?

    Cricket watches random things- So You Think You Can Dance, Thelma and Louise, Big Bang Theory, dogs on tv, squirrels on YouTube (which my cat likes, as well)... she doesn't seem to have a "favorite." She just watches when she's in the mood.

    fearful/avoiding collars/harnesses

    Hi, everyone- I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for me to use with Cricket. She's recently become more skittish about having a collar, harness, or anything (this includes clothes) put on her. She's never liked clothes- she just becomes dead weight when I put things on her, and then rolls...

    Cranimals Gold for tear stains??

    Hi- Cricket has tear stains, too. I tried Cranimals gold and really didn't notice any difference. I keep her on it because what it HAS helped with is her tail pocket- she has a tight tail pocket and there's been a steady improvement with her tail pocket. I still clean it, but it's not as...

    spontaneous appearance of lumps on skin

    Cricket's much MUCH better. maybe one or two tiny bumps, but when I gave her the once-over last night, the biggest one had shrunk to 1/4 its original size. I don't feel any bumps on her anymore... I don't know what it was but I'm thinking spiders, mosquitoes, or ants. I don't think wasps/bees...

    spontaneous appearance of lumps on skin

    Hi- I let Cricket out last night at about 9:30. She was in the back yard for maybe 10 minutes. When she came back in, she had about eight mosquito bite sized lumps all over her back and on her legs (none on her belly, paws, or chest. I even checked in her mouth- no welts in her mouth). The...

    OLDEST EB

    My Willa was 3 weeks short of 12 years.. She was spayed. I once heard of someone who had a 13 year old english bulldog, but i never met it, so can't verify that.
