Other Health Questions

The main focus of the Can Pets Eat website is to guide you with regards to pet nutrition. We want to tell you whether your pets can or can not eat certain foods. They are your questions, our article titles and our answers. And hopefully, they will tell you all you need to know to help you take proper care of your furry friends.

Diet is one of the main aspects of pet health but there is so much more to take into consideration. That’s where this section of the site comes in. If it doesn’t fit into the individual sections on pet nutrition and is more related to pet health, then this is where you will find it.

To use this section, just scroll over the Other Health Question menu above and then wait to see what pops up. You can then click on the section you’re looking for and be guided to the relevant article. It’s actually much easier, however, if you simply use the search function. You can find this on the top right hand side of the website.

What You Will Find in this Section

Anything that does not fit into pet diet and pet nutrition can be found here. You have asked us questions like Can Rabbits Fart?, for instance, which have been discussed in this section. This may sound like an amusing question that will only generate an irrelevant answer, but that’s far from the case. Flatulence is a good indicator of your bunny’s health. It can indicate just how healthy or otherwise the digestive system is, which in turn can tell you whether they need to seek assistance from a vet or not.

There are other, similar questions and answers discussed in this section. You have asked us whether it is okay to give your dog and your cat certain medications prescribed for humans, and we have answered them. These medications often work for animals in the same way as they do for us, but there are a few important differences. For instance, it’s very important to get the dose right. What’s okay for you might be a massive overdose for your pet. It’s also important to know which medications are okay and which ones are not.

This information is provided as a guide only, giving you an answer to an important question and helping to ease your concerns. It should not be taken in lieu of a vet’s advice. Whenever you give medication to an animal, regardless of the type of medication, the type of animal, or the disease you’re treating, you should always consult with a vet first.

Only they can tell you if you are doing the right thing. Only they can tell you if it is safe or dangerous, and only they can truly advise with regards to the dose, the effectiveness and any safer alternatives that you can try.

So, start clicking, start visiting these articles and start learning more about your pet’s health today! If you have any questions that you can’t find here, then use our Contact Us page and put it to us directly.
