Hello,My 11-year-old cat has just come into the house, and

Hello, My 11-year-old cat has just come into the house, and she has lost the last inch of hair from the end of her tail; you can see only what looks like white string, which I imagine is the bone? In addition, we can see small spots of blood on the floor where she is walking around. Although she seems a bit nervy, she has just scoffed her dinner, so does not seem overly traumatised. Will the bleeding stop, or does she need treatment from a vet and, if so, how soon should we take her? And finally, is it likely the hair will grow back?

Our Chinese dwarf hamster died all of a sudden. She was

Our Chinese dwarf hamster died all of a sudden. She was about one and one half years old, at least that is what we think. She was running around yesterday with lots of energy and my daughter found her dead today. The only sign we can see of anything is that her front paws are bloody. She has had the same wheel she has always had which was smooth plastic. Any ideas. We have another chinese dwarf who lives in a separate cage and would like to figure out anything we need to be aware of. Thanks.

My blue bull terrier previously of good character started snarling and growling at me and would not leave the car for 8 hours , eventually coaxed him out with chicken nuggets but on closer inspection found some lumps under his ear where hair not growing and concerned .Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your blue bull?Customer: The car incident has spooked me , I am now slightly wary of him . That was 2 nights ago and last night also he was very restless . The closer I got the louder his growl became so decided to back off .
