How to Stop Cat Urinating on Bed

Looking After Horses in Winter

L

Keeping horses has many advantages in terms of your property and the ease of doing it. Of course in some ways it’s more challenging – you need to have the money to rent some space for them or to just have enough land to keep them; but at the same time it means you don’t have all the concerns dog owners have such as wee on the carpet or your furniture being unthreaded.

Claw and Nail Disorders in Dogs: Brittle, Cracked Nails

C

Claw and nail disorders are a big problem in dogs for whom the nail is a rather important implement.

Why Is My Dog Not Eating?

W

For most of us, our dogs are not the most discriminating food critics. On the contrary, most dogs will eat literally anything that is presented to them, and quite a lot of things that aren’t. Dead birds, manure, dog food, cups of tea, human food, bones, insects, grout, dirt… you name it. For most of us no trip to the kitchen is made alone without our dog following us close behind. So when this...

Cataracts in Dogs

C

Watching your dog grow old can be a heart breaking experience. Your dog has been your best friend for many years, but now the lively puppy you remember is a memory and instead you have a dog who is riddled with aches and pains and prefers to spend his days lying by the fire rather than chasing rabbits. One of the common side effects for dogs who are growing old is cataracts. If your dog has...

G
