      Hi Andrea, there are some great over the counter flea shampoos to help your kitten. Something with a lot of lather. Daily vacuuming and weekly laundering of all beds and toys will help a great deal.

      Hi Deshonti, we recommend taking your puppy to the vet right away. Pale gums are a sign of something VERY serious. Sending our best.

    Hello, my mom’s indoor cat….goes outside supervised like 5 minutes a day) bit me (no puncture marks, just kind of scratch marks from teeth.) She had her rabies shot maybe 3 years ago, do you think she could pass rabies or anything to me?

  • John Simar

    I have a female dog that is half Boston terrier/ half Pit Bull. She is pregnant, and I believe it is for my Alaskan Malamute. I have been having concerns about if her being pregnant for a larger dog is potentially dangerous to her health.
