I am about to buy a puppy and a kitten and I am not sure whether I should get them neutered/spayed straight away. I have read conflicting reports from different vets as to which is the best way to go. I will be buying a male puppy and female kitten. I definitely do not want them to have puppies and kittens in the future. On the one hand they say your should let them go until 12 months and others are saying 6 months at the latest. I really want to do what is best for them. Any help would be great.
Has anyone had any experience with Changi Quarantine. I have a cat arriving from Australia next week but the flight doesn't arrive until 10pm and quarantine shuts at 10.30pm. Do you know if they are flexible and will stay open later. Surely if they know an animal is on a certain flight they will stay open. I don't want my cat to have to stay at the airport overnight. I would like him cleared and delivered to my home the night he arrives no matter how late it is.
I was in a pet shop the other day and I was quite distressed to see a very sick Husky puppy. He was sitting down, I do not think he could have stood up. His tongue was hanging out of his mouth he had open sores on both his front paws, and quite frankly looked like he could have passed out at any minute. Are there any laws making these pet shops responsible for the animals in their care? No one would buy this poor Husky, although I was tempted just so I could take it to the vet!!
We have a 3 year old cat - who is spoilt rotten and is the centre of attention. We are going to introduce a new kitten this week. Does anyone have any advice as to how we should introduce them? Are we best to keep them apart for a while until the kitten gets used to its surroundings or introduce them from day one. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hi, we will be moving in the near future, from an appartment to a house about 5 kms away. Is it true that a cat will escape and try run to the old home? Do you have any advice about this? Butter on their paws is what I heard (when I was about 10yrs old!) help!Also, he has never been vaccinated, so will need to be as he will have loads of freedom....does anyone know if he will need two shots (first & booster) like kittens, or only one. He is three.Thanks!!!
My friend's dog who after swimming and drinking in the Kallang Basin, comes home for the rest of the day and is very quiet and vomits. Has anyone else come across this? Any help would be great - as the dog loves to swim. Maybe just the heat is getting to him - but it seems only after swimming that it happens. Rocky
I have just returned from a weeks holiday to find my 3 year old cat has a bald spot under her chin and it looks as though she has broken the skin as well. It doesn't seem to bother her so I'm not rushing to the vet just yet but just wanted to see if anyone else has had this happen with your own cat? I know it is not fleas and the only changes I've made lately is changing brands of cat litter. I wonder if it is an allergy?
