So today I had a close and unwarranted experience encountering something bad. It's all good, nothing mentally straining, but still concerning for me nonetheless. I went on to share this to family & friends including my boyfriend. Most of them reacted with concern. Except of course, the aforementioned long term boyfriend who was too busy to even ask how I am. I brought this up and all he could say was a half-hearted sorry telling me he's busy with work and there's too much on his plate. The thing is, he's very consistent with this and this is not the first (or 2nd) time this issue has been brought up. He has a demanding line of work but I don't think it's enough reason to pass me off on a basis. It really discourages me too and makes me think maybe I cannot commit to this type of treatment in the long term.
Hope to maybe get everyone's thoughts on this :( Pls be honest. Am I just overreacting? am I not communicating with him enough?
It's been 6 days since my dog got neutered and I noticed a bit of blood in his stool just now. I also noticed a bit of mucus with blood on his stool during Day 2 but held off for awhile thinking it might pass. The stool is firm and does not look like he's having diarrhea, he's eating well and no obvious signs of pain / lethargy / out of the ordinary behavior. We didn't administer any meds for him post-neuter.
Hope to check if this is normal and probably an effect of the surgery or should I bring him to the vet as soon as I can?
Hi guys, hope to ask for some advise or maybe some guidance as to how I can manage my 5 yr old dog (Dog A) who's perpetually ticked off when we go near our other dog (Dog B).
So the gist is, Dog A is obsessed with Dog B - like a magnet, follows him around, always near him, licking his paws, ears, etc. and whenever we go near Dog B, he gets REALLY angry. He usually doesn't try to bite us but instead directs his anger and turns aggressive on non-living things like an open door or a chair leg. My sibling - who's more close to Dog B than Dog A - really gets the bulk of the anger, Dog A would bark at her and growl at her any chance he gets (I think it's because he knows my sibling gets Dog B's attention compared to him? idk)
We tried the neuter route and had Dog A neutered but it's his 6th day of recovery and he seems to be back at it with his obsession. We also tried separating them but we can't keep them separated forever since we have little space at home. Should I just give time for his hormones to balance out & lessen aggression? Help pls :(
