Dr Brown, first I want to say I was so impressed to read about the mission of DELTA Rescue. It warms my heart.
I have a male 5 year old beagle that lost a rear leg. He refuses to stop running the wild life and this wears him out often times barely making it home dragging himself on his one good rear leg. He is in so much pain is there anything I can do for him. My vet gave some Glucosamine Chews and they help a bit. He was getting a little over weight after neutering so I put him on a diet which helped a bit also. Do I need to kennel him and not let him out every again? This makes me sad to think of but I hate seeing him in pain.
Thank you for your feedback.
Hi Dr. Brown, was just watching the video on this post and was reminded of how remarkable you are. Thank you for being a selfless and kind soul dedicated to the well being of our animal friends. You rock! I miss DELTA and the animals. What a sweet experience it was working there. Blessings to you, the staff and the animals!
We lost our 10 year old female Rottweiler in May 2013 (osteosarcoma). Ever since she passed away, our other dog, a three year old Rottie (also female)seems depressed. She has always been a very energetic and happy dog but now she just wants to lie in her bed all the time. She’s not sleeping, she just looks up at us with sad eyes.
We take her to the beach, dog park, walks, Petco etc. but it seems as though she doesn’t want to go anywhere these days. She used to run out and hop up into the Jeep like a crazy dog whenever we said “Bye Bye.” She’s not even interested in backyard play time.
Her eating & drinking habits are unchanged and her demeanor is just as sweet and gentle as ever. Could she be depressed and/or grieving for her playmate? Should we consider getting a second dog?
We are retired and someone is usually home with her all day. Other than her companions illness/death, nothing has changed in the household. We got her as a pup, about 8 weeks old, so she has never been a solo pet.
i took my dog to my vets to board him for a week, he is 4 yrs old, and never been away from home, american bulldog, when i picked him up, he was sluggish, didn’t recognize me right away, he had a problem urinating for a couple of days, scratching constantly, gave him a flea pill, still scratching, and doesn’t want me to leave his side for long, i feel so bad, but might have to make another week trip, what is your advice, granted he is also tempermental, when it comes to people, and other animals, what do you think of all this????
I have no one he likes to take care of him, and i worry about taking him somewhere else, not sure how he will react to people he don’t know at another place??? thank u for your time..
Enter your question here. How can I help a feral cat I have had for 10 years who is not eating. I cannot get it to the vet as it is too wild to get into a carier and once when I did get it to the vet, he couldn’t get hold of it to exam it. This has been the case for two months now and I am very worried
Please help. I have tried every kind of food but no improvement.
our dog is a rescue, we love her … she is Wolfhound -mix, smaller than normal in height, she will be walking with us on her leash,sees another dog drops belly down to the ground..people say she wants to attack thie dogs, but she doesnt, attack , unless the dog forces themselves on her, what is this behavior ,is it dangerous ? (weve had her 4 years now …) thank you …
What can I give 2 cats to calm them down. They are afraid of everyone, but will come out to eat. They can get in the dropped ceiling, do not want handled. I have found a cat rescue that will take them, but I need to get them into the carriers. I am 82 and it is not easy. They need to be around people, they are very sweet but don’t want handled. They are only 3 years old, spayed, all their shots, never been out side since then. Thank you.
