her weight,is now parasite free, and is now an indoor cat. And the amazing thing is she adores Henry and Wilson. And they adore her. Who'd have thought it? She purrs and rubs up and down their legs, curls up with them, and tolerates being licked all over and poked at. Here are some pictures of the crew together r/peaches I don't have too many with Henry Clumber because he is such a whirling dervish it’s hard to get him to sit still for a picture, and when I sneak off to get the camera he moves (and I don't leave my camera sitting around for fear it will get broken). And amazingly enough this new found cat harmony is transfering to our other two indoor cats. So Henry and Wilson are learning to be cat lovers in their senior years :) I guess it just took the right kitty to convince them.”

Henry And Wilson Update Henry is Shogun’s Facinating Rhythm and Wilson is his 11 year old Sussex buddy. Last year they went to live with Paula Chmura, her cats and birds in Pensacola, FL. Here is the latest from Paula from her own pen. You may have seen this previously on a chat list.

“When Henry and Wilson came here to Florida they wanted to eat our two cats. I have been working dilligently with them and they have gotten somewhat better as long as the kitties don't run - then all bets are off. We have just made peace in the house by cordoning off certain rooms with baby gates that the cats can hang out in, and then locking the dogs in my room at night so the cats can roam at will. It works pretty well. Well, fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when our neighbor’s cat showed up on our doorstep a walking skeleton. We started feeding her because we felt so sorry for her. The neighbors were being forclosed on and we spoke to them and they gave us the cat (Peaches). Long story short, we vetted her out, she has doubled

When to Treat Your Dog at Home and When to Call the Vet By: AKC Emergencies Emergencies for your dog can happen at any time. Some are minor, while others can be life threatening. In the November/December 2010 issue of American Kennel Club's AKC Family Dog contributor and veterinarian Jeff Grognet, DVM offers advice on what you can treat at home and when you should bring your dog to the veterinarian. Among them: Eyes: Any eye problem your dog has needs to be seen by a veterinarian. Most people can't tell if their dog has a scratch that will heal on its own, or glaucoma which will cause vision loss very quickly. Vomiting and diarrhea: Sudden, mild vomiting is common and can be treated at home, as long as the dog is not inactive and lethargic and the vomiting stops. Withhold food and water for 12 hours. Once the 12 hours have gone by, offer your dog water. If he can hold the water down for two hours, offer some bland food. Diarrhea can be treated at home by withholding only food. "Whenever vomiting or diarrhea continues, or the dog is depressed, or if the dog is under 16 weeks old or is a senior, it's time for a veterinary visit," says Dr. Grognet. "These dogs are fragile and a little dehydration can make them ill." Bloat: Bloat happens to a dog when the stomach begins swelling with air and rotating, which closes off the entrance and exit. Symptoms of bloat include drooling, trying to vomit, anxiety, pacing, and a swollen belly. This disease is very dangerous and needs immediate treatment from your veterinarian. Allergic reactions: Your dog might have an allergic reaction from insect bites or stings, food, or medications. What most commonly happens is the muzzle and eyelids will swell. While this is uncomfortable for your pooch, it is not dangerous. He may also develop hives on his body which are very


itchy, but also not dangerous. Consult your vet on how to keep your dog comfortable during an allergic reaction. In addition, the article offers a list of items dog owners should have on hand. Among them: g.

irritated skin, or rubbing at his eyes or ears. -style. Legal Disclaimer If your pet is showing any signs of distress or you suspect your pet is seriously ill, CONTACT YOUR VETERINARIAN immediately.
