What to do against flea infestation?
You should first treat the dog with an effective anti-flea product. It is important to treat all animals in the household as well as the sleeping places of the animal with the anti-flea treatment. You yourself do not have to undergo treatment as dog fleas bite humans only briefly.

The body temperature of humans is unpleasant to dog fleas and therefore they leave after a short time. If no improvement occurs, you should have your animal checked by the vet for other parasites. An allergy of the dog can also be responsible for the itching.
What causes and treatments are there for my dog's bad breath?
Bad odor from the mouth can have different causes. However, there is often a gum infection with tartar behind it. This tartar absolutely has to be removed by the vet otherwise the gum can be pushed back so far that the teeth can fall out.

If the teeth are clean again, the new formation of tartar can be reduced or prevented completely by various care measures for the teeth. The best care is provided by brushing the teeth with special dog toothbrushes and dog tooth paste.

Brushing the teeth two to three times a week can strongly reduce the formation of tartar. If the dog does not allow brushing of the teeth even with careful training, you can offer him special tooth cleaning strips, raw hide bones or raw carrots as an alternative which care for the teeth during chewing.

Have your dog's teeth checked regularly (e.g. when getting annual shots) so that tartar can be removed on time and no gum infections occur.
My puppy has diarrhea. What to do?
Puppies have very few liquid reserves in their body. Diarrhea in puppies can lead to life-threatening dehydration very quickly. If you wait too long to bring him/her to the vet, the dog might only be saved by a very expensive treatment (infusion etc.).

It is imperative to bring the dog to the vet as soon as you see an issue and have the diarrhea treated. The vet will also give you exact feeding instructions according to the cause of illness.
My cat sneezes, her nose is runny and she eats little. Has she got an infection?
Sneezing and a runny nose in young cats is almost always a viral infection; however, viral infections are not always harmless colds but can be serious infectious disease. The severity of the illness varies from cat to cat, but in order to avoid later damage to eyes and lungs, every cat with suspected viral infection should be treated immediately.

The longer you wait to bring him/her to the vet, the more elaborate and expensive the treatment will be.
What is the cause of the irregular coughing fits my cat has?
Such coughing fits can have various causes. Asthma, for example, is a relatively frequent cause of "coughing fits" in cats. It could also be a bit of grass in the throat, laryngitis or another irritation for the cat's larynx.

A vet has to examine the cat thoroughly to help determine the exact cause. The vet can then start the correct treatment according to their findings.
My old cat is drinking a lot and using the litter box frequently. Is this a sign of a kidney problem?
The kidneys, unfortunately, are often the first organs to get sick in older cats. Drinking a lot may indicate a kidney problem, however, this cannot be determined without an examination. It is advised  to have the blood and urine of the cat checked.

These examinations can detect the start of kidney damage and therefore, treatment can commence early enough. If you wait until the cat is in really bad shape and showing clear symptoms (thin, scruffy fur, bad appetite etc), it is often already too late for treatment.
