Ask A Vet With Dr. Jennifer Lu On Cats And Excessive Licking

| Filed under: Q&AHealthPetsCat


Cats are divas and divas need to look GORGEOUS at all times.

But what if your cat goes a little cuckoo and keeps licking itself?

A cat owner has that predicament:

My cat has licked all the hair off the places she can reach - tail, back legs, belly, etc. Over the months that it escalated we moved, she started getting to go outside, we got a second cat who tortures her, and she was put on a strict diet.

So is it allergies, anxiety, or something else? Why is she going crazy with the licking?

Thankfully, ASPCA's Dr. Jennifer Lu is on the case!

Here's what she has to say on a kitty's loco licking:

Dating At Work!

| Filed under: Love LineQ&AAdvice

Dr J

Ever wonder if you should go for it with someone at work?

Think it'll get complicated??

This FitPerezcious Reader wants to know the same thing!

Here's their question:

There is a guy at work that I really like. We work in different departments but we have gotten to chat quite a bit at different meetings for the office over the last few months. He's super nice, smart and funny. Last week a group of us went out to happy hour and he walked me to my car afterwards and kissed me! I'm totally psyched except everyone always says don't date people you work with and I know what they mean because I dated a guy at my last job and it was really bad after we broke up. Should I give it a shot with this guy and hope it will be different or just pretend the kiss never happened?

Luckily, we have love advice expert Dr. J here to answer!

Q&A: My Dog Is A Rebel

| Filed under: Q&ATrainingDogDr. Patrick Mahaney


Many of us have some problem areas when it comes to our dogs' training — but this woman has got it bad.

TeddyHilton.com reader, Petra, wrote to Dr. Patrick Mahaney and said:

My dog is probably the worst ever!!!!!!! She never goes on any walks. If she HAS to come I have to pull her out the front door. When my son forgets to clean the table she pushes the chair out and eats every last bit of food. She also bites my hand off if i have treats in it by jumping up and grabbing my hand. The last problem is she barks at everything! The worst part is 85 precent of the time she barks at NOTHING!! Please tell me what to do with my dog, Leila.

P.S. Help soon she is influencing my dog Loki who is beginning to pick up her bad habits.

Best Wishes,

Good thing we have Dr. Patrick to respond:

Q&A: How To Get My Anxious Dog To The Vet

| Filed under: Q&APetsDogDr. Patrick Mahaney


Looks like a case of SEVERE white coat syndrome!

The veterinarian can be a dog's friend or a dog's enemy in their mind.

And this Teddyhilton.com reader's pooch DOES NOT LIKE THE VET!

She writes:

I am a huge fan of yours! and I love your tips!

I had a question regarding my dog, she is 12, turning 13 this year. And I am constantly worried about her health and I try giving her as much exercise as I can but it is time for her vet check up and ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE HER.

My dog has extreme anxiety ever since she was a puppy and she even gets seizures when she gets so anxious. We got her tested to see if she had epilepsy or a tumor and everything came up clear. So when it comes to take her to the vet she goes insane and even bit the vet, and the vet hates us because he cant cut her nails and do the proper procedures needed.

How can I take her to the vet without having to medicate her and her anxiety levels to go up and cause a seizure?

As always, Dr. Patrick is here to save the day for this pups anxiety!
