Bunnies need health care too.  Watch for overgrown teeth and problems due to diet.  Skin parasites can be common also.

Keep warm this weekend, its is going to be cold outside and our Veterinarians don't want to have to treat any pets for frostbite. It is not a good time to go for a walk with your dog. You know that there is a problem when Fairview Park has a temperature of 21ºF with a low of 4ºF and Fairbanks Alaska is a balmy 35ºF! Make sure you put a coat on your dog when he or she goes outside to potty. Even an old t-shirt or sweatshirt will work. For small dogs or puppies, cut off the sleeve of an old sweatshirt, make holes for the front legs, slip it over their head, and you have an easy dog sweater. Stay warm!

So, how do you know when they are fighting or playing?

Play is usually quiet, no hissing, growling, unless it gets too rough.  Ears are forward, not flattened against the head.   Fighting usually is very noisy, lots of hissing, growling and other vocalization.  Ears are flattened against the head. The aggressor will control the interaction by increasing the aggressive behavior.  Sometimes it is difficult to tell when cats are acting aggressively in a household. Most cat to cat aggression is subtle: body posture, spraying, and running away from conflict.

I learned an important lesson today.  Did you know that dogs should not eat chocolate?  I never believed that something so tasty could be so bad for you.  I found this box of brownies the other day when I was looking for snacks and decided to eat a couple.  Well, the next thing you know they were all gone, all 12 of them.  They sure were good!  By the next morning, I could not keep my breakfast down, or anything else.  I was vomiting all day long, until the doctor gave me a shot to stop the vomiting.  I'm feeling much better today.  Maybe I should have eaten something that wasn't chocolate.  The doctor said that in moderate doses, chocolate can make dogs vomit, but higher amounts, especially products like solid baking chocolate, could cause seizures, coma and even death in severe cases. (I wonder what the cake called "Death by Chocolate" would be like?) I will never eat chocolate again, especially since they put all the snacks way up out of my reach.

Ask Frankie
Q: What do the sounds cats make really mean?

A:  I’m so glad you asked.  While I tend to be the strong silent type, many of my cat friends are very vocal.  The most common sounds we make include:
purr - a happy cat sound
churr - mama cat calling her kittens, or a happy greeting sound to another cat
meow - this one is kinda like aloha in humans - it can mean many things, but often it is used to get attention or announce our presence
growl - an unhappy cat sound
chatter - this occurs when we can’t reach something we want - like that bird just outside the window.
