hello /an/ first time poster here, pls help

>have Malinois doggo (~8 years right now)
>~3 years ago, he tore his ACL equivalent (forgot the name right now)
>Vet said surgery had a low chance of working
>got a harness for his leg, very little exercise for a whole year
>he actually improves pretty much back to his 95% former self
>however, in the last few months, he's been limping at the leg after long-ish walks. Usually he recovers by the next day (no limp) and if I walk him short distances, he's fine.
>walk him today for a decent stretch, he is limping badly

so before I fork a couple hundred on a visit to the vet, what could be the cause? arthritis? old age? I mean he isn't getting any younger...but its there anything I can do/try first as far as supplements or what have you? when he was recovering I gave him glucosamine, not sure if it helped but I can try that again....any other suggestions?

thank you
>>
Just take one vet visit and an x-ray. You only spend a lot of money if you keep being statisfied with vets doing 'cheap' touch-and-guess and trying a lot of unneeded medicine.
>>
>but its there anything I can do/try first as far as supplements or what have you?
have you tried painkillers? you probably shouldn't have taken him for any long walks.
>>
>>3115554

go see a vet.

>arthritis?

yes. injury causes inflammation, inflammation causes calcification and calcification causes injury causing inflammation again. it's a vicious cycle....

>old age?

yes

>but its there anything I can do/try first as far as supplements or what have you?

Anyone know what breed of cat this is? It looks like a mix of some kind to me but I'm not entirely sure.

Mutt.
No papers no breed.

Sorry

Cats aren’t bred like dogs, 99% of them are mutts aka DSH and DLH
>>
>>3115825
Calicos and tabbies are not breeds, they're types of markings. And as others have said, cats are only breeds if they come from a breeder or a rescue for specific breeds, your cat is a domestic shorthair, what 99% of cats are.
>>
It's no "breed", it's an European house cat
>>
>>3115809
thats just a generic farm cat, no breed

Dog vomited a few times this morning but in the third or 4th time, she vomited this up and didt vomit again until we took her to the vet and she puked a bit on the car ride over there. Since all the clenics in my area where closed execpt for the overpriced ones in petsmart and due to current financial problems we could not afford the x-rays and bloodworks etc so we just bought some medicine for nausea and stomach problems. Thing is she wont eat even a little bit of the prescribed food and she is usually a gluttonous pig and most worrying of all, she is hardly moving. She just kinda stands in one place or lays down where ever we put her. Sometimes she moves to go under my bed (common for her to do) but nothing. Any other /an/ friends had something like this before? If she does not get better by tomorow when the other clenics open up am taking her there asap.

make some bone broth by cooking up soup bones/meat waste like chrushed chicken bone etc., strain all the bone shards/particles off and feed the soup to the dog. you want it to get some water/food after throwing up that much and to sooth her stomach. the brown stuff in the pic could be blood I'm afraid. other than that, I can only suggest you find a good vet and go there asap!
>>
>>3116093
Bone broth is a good idea thank you.

She is moving a little bit more but she still greatly prefers to be lazy and not acting like her usual self at all. Ill try feeding her some of the food the vet recommended if she doest eat it am taking her to this other clinic when it opens up which is in 40 mins.

>>3116001
Last morning she went to pee and since she loves to lick and eat random shit thats what could have been. Some mushy stuff off the ground licked it right off before I could stop here. She is 8 fucking years and she still does this shit. I have no idea what it could have been.

>>3116068
Don't say that. Pic is when I first got here like 8 years ago or more. Ill post more status updates here

>>3116181

Yea not eating that stuff and only really wants to drink water. Gonna take her now to the vet that does not cost an arm and a leg. wish me and her luck anons.

>>3116186
Nevermind, it seems after taking a poop ( one hard targ small but a little bit watery at the end) she eat a nicr portion.
>>
>>3115727
Dogs are higher value than any livestock. If a cow or something gets sick just shoot it, you're going to eat it anyway so why waste money on it.

Potential first time cat owner.
Got the chance to rescue two wonderfully friendly cats from someone who's just completely neglecting them. Major issue is that my mother, whom I live with, is allergic. Any advice except clean their tray and bed often /an/
And any other tips for a first time cat owner, really don't wanna fuck this up
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.

Is your mom okay with that?
Brush the cats a lot in your room every day. If they have access to the parts of your home your mom uses too, which I would prevent if possible, make sure to place towels everywhere they like to lay down and change them daily. Clean a lot. Just do everything that prevents your mom comming in contact with cat hair.
Also be prepared to find them a good new home if it doesn't work out after all.

General advice:
- you don't need bowls, most cats prefer old plates
- feed good food and a variety of brands
- save for potential vet emergencies if you don't have already or ensurance,
- keep the litterboxes clean and the litter filled in high
- daily rituals with playtime and teaching them tricks keeps them fit and helps with bonding,
- a raw chicken wing every now and then helps keeping the teeth clean,
- wheat grass or catmint helps with digestion and might save your important plants,
- no bathing required outside of health hazard fur contaminations, save yourself and your cats the stress
- put the carriers into your room as a normal hiding space and teach them to go into there and let themselves be locked into there for a minute, always reward with a snack
- they can learn rules but will most likely only follow them while you're around so a better way is to always offer them a better alternative and make the old, bad place unatractive to use
