How long should I wait before getting new pet for my other pets?

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

I just had to put a dog down, and my older dog is now alone. She keeps looking for her. It is so sad; I always thought she would go first. She has had more health problems. Now I am scared for her. I want to make her comfortable and find her a new friend. How long is it good to wait?


How can I tell if my dog is depressed?

Friday, May 21st, 2010

Do dogs actually suffer depression like humans do?  If so, what are some signs of depression in dogs?

I’ve heard stories about dogs being treated with antidepressants and that made me curious. I discovered there are animal psychiatrists and I was wondering what  your thoughts are on animal psychiatry?  Is it real?

We lost our 24 year old cat 4 months ago and since then my 11 year old beagle has not been his usual self, acting listless and depressed.

What other options are available for sad pets?
Thank you,
