  1. Cat Health and Nutrition
    Hi. My cat has been given antibiotics tablets which as with most cats, she won’t take. My vet gave me some easy pill putty to wrap the pill in. I gave her some putty just now (with no pill) to see if she liked it. It was about the size of a pea. She was chewing constantly for about two or three...

    I rescued two kittens from Blue Cross last year when they were 9 weeks old. One of the boys (Wolfie) has had this odd habit from the moment we got him. He will turn his head slightly and chew up and down for about 30 seconds and then stop. He likes to rest his face against corners of things, he...

    Hi everyone! Looking for a bit of advice here :) We have a new little puppy (had her just over a week now!), just over 8 weeks old so still very young. She was separated from her mom a little too early, we know, but circumstances were difficult but she settled in within a couple of days here...

    Hello I have an 11 week old Yorkshire Terrier who loves to chew! she has plenty of toys, we do lots of puppy play through the day, but as soon as I move she is straight on my slippers or the bottom of my jeans chewing away, to the point where sometimes she is dragged across the floor as she...

    I need help and don't know what to do. We have a very engertic 14 month old male English Bulldog who is a handful. We are having problems with his chewing at the moment and I don't know what else I can do. When left by himself, he's perfect he just goes to sleep in his bed and wakes up when I...

    Hi everyone! Posting this because I am at my wits end and don’t know what else to do ‍♀️ I have a 2 year old cockapoo who has developed a habit of licking/chewing his paws raw! We have been in and out of the vets with him at least 5 times but everything they have advised just has not worked. We...

    Hey everyone! I got my hamster about 2 months ago and started off with a plastic bottomed, barred cage that in hindsight was probably a bit too small. After about a month and a half, my hamster managed to chew through the plastic part of the cage. So, I bought her a new one that was slightly...

    Hello folks, I'd like to preface this by saying that I've read the sticky post about medical advice on these forums and we've already been to two (hopeless) vets about the issue, and I'm looking to see if anyone else has ever experienced something similar or has found a solution to the problem...

    Hello, my puppy is now nearly 12 weeks old, I have been crate training him and he is fine with it, doesn’t cry at all and happily goes to sleep in his crate and sleeps through the night with no accidents, it’s really helping the potty training. My question is how often should he be out of the...

    My 13 weeks old puppy has always eaten quick, she has slowed down a bit with her meals but she swallows treats whole, we use her kibble as treats which aren't that big but we do have some bigger treats for when we pop out which are round and probably about 10p/2p piece in size and she just...

    Hi, im new here and am looking for some advice. My husband and I rescued a border collie in October (he has just turned 1 this month). He is the most amazing and loving dog i have ever met, and he settled in really well. We had the normal puppy teething issues with a few accidents but nothing...
  13. Rabbits
    Hi there, Hoping to get a bunny soon! Just a few questions about bunny proofing for a free roam bunny in my room. One - Would clear duck/packing tape on the skirting boards be a good idea to stop bunny chewing on the boards? Two - Do bunny's chew on blankets/sheets on your bed/floor etc or is it...

    Can anyone offer any advice on how to stop a kitten chewing? This is not a new problem but I did think he would grow out of it! He is now 7 months. I've had his teeth checked and he's all normal (no baby teeth left) but he chews constantly. Because he's indoors I was worried it might be a...
  15. Chinchillas
    Hi all! I adopted 2 gorgeous Chinchillas named Rick & Morty when they were 4 years old. Here is my dilemma: when I let them out, they don’t go 30 seconds without chewing something, be it my door or my skirting boards or my walls etc. Here are my questions: 1) are they too late to train so...

    We recently adopted a 10-month-old crossbreed (Romanian Rescue). She chews stuff constantly. She immediately started chewing anything left around, especially her dog bed and the two dog beds that belong to our existing older dogs. She's more recently started to chew our skirting boards...

    Hi all, I have a 3 month old Boston Terrier bitch. She seems to only want to chew forbidden items. I know positive reinforcement is better than punishment and you should redirect their chewing to their toys but she will play with the toy for about a second the go back to the...

    Hello, I’ve recently adopted a rescue dog and since last night I’ve noticed she keeps chewing her back paw. I know a little bit of chewing is normal with itches, stress etc, but she literally has had full paw in her mouth as if she’s trying to eat it. Is this something to worry about or am I...

    I have a rescue pup. She's almost a year now and she's been with us for most of that time. I have trained a couple puppies in my life but she is proving to be a challenge. Not sure of her breed, she's a street rescue... she's small, 6kg and about a year old. Lucy Liu chews everything. We...
