My question is about my bearded dragon.  He has begun to shake and he flips himself over onto his back.  He has been doing this for the past two weeks, shaking has been longer.  I have given him additional calcium supplements and it does not seem to have made much of a difference in his behavior.  Do you know what might be going on with him?

i have two dogs {females,not done) one dog has crusty bumps on her with the smell of stinking feet, i bath her in aveeno bath powder and apply lanacane to her sores but it does not help, on her belly the skin sheds and is red for awhile then the skin grows back repeatily. it seems to itch her alot but she is to overweight to clean herself. the crusty dandruff is mostly on her back from her neck to her tail in bumps about one inch apart from another. the other dog is healthy and slim.

I am not sure if you will be able to answer this... I have a red-eared slider turtle, 5 years old, named Speedy. Today he got lost outside and I am concerned he may not survive if he is not found. I researched online and it says he is in danger due to overheating and starvation being he cannot swallow food without water b/c he does not have salivia. He is a water turtle lost in the florida heat. Truthfully, will my pet survive on his own and for how long if he cannot locate water?

Please help me my bichon started acting lame tonight. He has been eating just fine but drinking alot more water lately. He usually will catch a little stuffed animal when tossed to him but tonight he started yelping when he tried to catch it. He has also been scooting on his but alot since his grooming apt. a couple weeks ago and the day after his groomers apt. I noticed a large tick right by his eye. I do not know how the groomer could have missed it?? He wants to be next to me all the time and will start to shake or shiver when I hold him. He has been treated in the past for a form of lyme's disease and pancreatis (pancreatitis) I was wondering your thoughts on his symptoms. I know I need to bring him in but I am currently laid off and I can not afford a bunch of testing and it breaks my heart because I would do anything in the world for him. I thought maybe it was because I treated him to little pork roast tonight but now when I think about it I have been noticing other little things lately too. Like not wanting to go for a walk. Please help any advice would be greatly appreciated. I

I have a 7 year old rabbit. He has a large 8x7cm lump on his shoulder. He had it biopsied a while ago when it was still quite small. It turned out to be only a lipoma, no cancer was found. We thought this lump would be removed, but given he has had Ecuniculi and has bouts of stasis. Now has seizures and hind leg weakness and is a little overweight the vet said the op was to big to put him through. The lump is big now and the vet said it is hard because it is in muscle. It is going to keep growing and We wish it had been removed when it was small. What is your opinion on this please?  Is it a big op?  Can it be lanced? He is hopping around on it fine and it does not seem to bother him. We only have the one rabbit savvy vet here in Perth Western Australia. Thankyou for any help.
