Treating Inappropriate Urination with Medication


There are typically 3 categories of medication that can be helpful to treat these problems.

  • Anti-Depressants and/or Anti-Anxiety Medications
  • Tranquilizers
  • Hormones

These drugs are not approved for use in cats, they were developed for use in humans. However, most of them have been used for long enough periods of time to give reason that they are relatively safe and successful in cats.

Buspar is an anti-anxiety  drug commonly used and prescribed by Veterinarians. It is only available from your Veterinarian.

There are also drugs such as Valium and Phenobarbital. You will need to consult with your veterinarian first and foremost. Do NOT give your animal any medication without a written prescription from you Veterinarian. Human medications, when not given appropriately, can harm your pet and are often fatal. Consult with your Veterinarian first!

If you have exhausted all Medical and Behavior problems with your regular Veterinarian, he/she may recommend you see a specialist.

Animal Behaviorist, Dr. Kelly Moffat is highly recommended. Below is her contact information.

Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.

If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
 • Consider purchasing a snake kit Avoid rock piles or tall green grass/bushes where snakes like to rest. 

About 150 people in Arizona are bitten every year. 
Some of Arizona’s rattlesnakes can also be lethal. 

Scottsdale is notorious for having snakebites and s…

National Adopt a dog month

National Adopt a dog month  And National Adopt a Shelter dog month

Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Has the thought crossed your mind in the past few months? If so, that's great! This is the perfect month for you to get down to business and do just that!

You might be looking simply for a companion, maybe a hiking pal, a friend for your grandparents or parents, how about an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day? Then this might just be the perfect timing!

Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.

A dog that is on the "E-List" (to be euthanized) is commonly a dog that might have growled when captured or put into a kennel, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are aggressive.
