Dog Diarrhea- treatment& tips /pet MD/PetMD

Diarrhea is a common problem in dogs, often because they will put almost anything in their mouth. But it can also be caused by more serious health problems, some of which require close attention, especially if the diarrhea is severe or occurs frequently.

Healthy Diets For Healthy Dogs

Good nutrition is important for dogs. It keeps them healthy and happy. But there’s no set formula for how often you feed your dog or what you put in his bowl. That’s because each pooch is different.

Dogs may vomit for a variety of relatively benign reasons—to expel something they shouldn’t have eaten from their stomach, for example. But sometimes vomiting is a sign of a serious health problem. Read on to learn why dogs vomit, when you should be concerned, and what you can do to help dogs who are vomiting.

Do you have a little extra time on your hands now that the holidays are over? Do you want to give your cat a special treat to celebrate? I’ve put together a couple of recipes for homemade cat treats that are healthy but distinctive enough that your cat should really enjoy them.

Herpesvirus infections in cats (also called feline viral rhinotracheitis) can be a big problem. Most cats are exposed to the virus at some point in their lives. Usually, the illness that results looks a lot like the human cold. Infected cats sneeze, have a runny nose and eyes, and feel poorly for a few days to a week or so, but then they recover uneventfully.
 

Benadryl, also known by its generic name diphenhydramine, is one of the few over-the-counter drugs that veterinarians routinely have owners administer at home.

Of course it is normal for dogs to scratch, but a sudden and intense bout can be a sign of an allergic reaction. As such, it is important you determine why the dog is scratching, especially if the behavior is repetitive, prolonged, or intense in nature.
Lyme disease is one of the most common tick-transmitted diseases in the world but only causes symptoms in 5-10% of affected dogs.  When infection leads to disease in dogs, the dominant clinical feature is recurrent lameness due to inflammation of the joints. There may also be a lack of appetite and depression. More serious complications include damage to the kidneys, and rarely, heart or nervous system disease.
Is too Much salt Dangerous for Cats

The New York Health Department put forth this rule in an attempt to make people aware of just how much salt they are eating and its role in increasing the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, kidney disease, and other health conditions. By chance, just as the New York rule was making headlines, I happened to run across a paper that looks into the link between sodium intake and feline health. The news appears to be better for cats than for people.
