This is likely due to a problem in her knee, less likely hip or back. This requires a good neurologic and orthopedic evaluation from your vet. Thankfully, she does not show overt signs of
The Labradoodle as a dog breed is still developing, and does not yet "breed true," i.e., puppies do not have consistently predictable characteristics.
The Labradoodle was first deliberately bred in 1989, when Australian breeder Wally Conron first crossed the Labrador Retriever and Standard Poodle for Guide Dogs Victoria. His aim was to combine the low-shedding coat of the Poodle with the gentleness and trainability of the Labrador, and to provide a Guide Dog suitable for people with allergies to fur and dander. Guide Dogs Victoria continue to breed Labradoodles today and Labradoodles are now often used around the world as Guide, Assistance, and Therapy Dogs as well as being popular family dogs.
Wool (with tight curls, and similar in appearance to that of a Poodle, but with a softer texture); Fleece (soft and free-flowing, with a kinked or wavy appearance); or Hair (which can be curly, straight or wavy, but is more similar in texture to a Labrador's coat)
Although most Labradoodles are healthy, they can suffer from certain problems common to their parent breeds.
Both Poodles and Labrador Retrievers can suffer from hip dysplasia, and should have specialist radiography to check for this problem before breeding. The parent breeds can also suffer from a number of eye disorders, and an examination by a qualified veterinary eye specialist should be performed.
Over the past couple of years, a number of Australian Labradoodles have also been found to suffer from Progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), an inherited disease that causes blindness, which occurs in both Miniature Poodles and Cocker Spaniels. It is strongly recommended that Australian Labradoodles be DNA tested for PRA before being bred.
A limited number of Mutigenerational and Australian Labradoodles have also been found to suffer from Addison's Disease
Like most Labrador Retrievers and Poodles, Labradoodles are generally friendly, energetic and good with families and children (although as with any dog the temperament may vary between individuals).
Well, I will give you a short lesson on the differences between vomiting and regurgitation, and will assume, your cat is most likely regurgitating.
I am So sorry to hear of your Jack Russell's recent serious illness. I, too, have a Jack Russell and mine also has cataracts, retinal degeneration and other signs of aging. So...
I would think again about having a cat and a baby. They can do very well together.
As you likely know, cats love fish and fish flakes are food from the sea for animals in the sea-- so-- I am not surprised to find that she likes them. It is fine to share a few with her.
The treatment is surgical and can be very dangerous. If there are no clinical signs, it may not need to be treated in an adult cat, but if there is distress or problems as a result, surgery i
