I have a little bit of a mouse problem, and my cat is killing a few of them, but I am afraid to put out any poison even where my cat can’t reach it because I am afraid if she gets ahold of a poisoned mouse she will become ill, or die? Can that happen?
Can dogs eat bananas?
Not many dogs like onions but they are toxic. Onions do very bad things to dogs’ blood! Grapes and raisins are another thing to keep away from your pet. The seeds of many fruits are toxic as well.
I am wondering if this is true.
Dogs should not eat chocolate. Chocolate contains theobromine, which is toxic to dogs. White chocolate contains very little, and baking chocolate contains a huge amount of theobromine. Still, dogs should never be given chocolate, even if it might not hurt them. It’s better to be safe that sorry.
Overabundance of salmonella contamination is definitely worthy of a recall. Would you eat meat that was recalled even though you thought it had “some” (a so-called healthy amount) of salmonella in it?

My vet suggested feeding my 10 week old puppy boiled chicken and rice for her upset stomach. She weighs almost 6 pounds. My question is, how much of each should I feed her…is there a certain recipe to follow?
Grind 4 ounces of raw white rice in an old coffee mill until it looks like cream of rice. Mix in 2 egg whites or 1 whole egg and 4 ounces of plain canned pumpkin or well mashed ripe banana. Spread in a 8″x8″ or 9″x9″ pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with cinnamon and …
I’m looking for a good, homemade dog treat (biscuits, preferably) recipe that doesn’t contain meat. It would be for my almost-3-month-old pup, if that makes any difference.
Be sure to really do your research before feeding any home-prepared diet. Balancing the meals is very important. Look at both sides of the issue, and have a chat with your vet.
My dog’s health improved on home-cooked food. She stopped stinking, her anal sacs stopped bothering her, her ears got even cleaner and her teeth stay cleaner. And she is a very old very sick dog!
I also wanted to know if it was safe to use the non-stick cooking spray for my “Pupcakes”. Any reliable advice would be greatly appreciated.
