Ask Seth: Dog Diabetes

My 6 year old male puggle was diagnosed with diabetes about 5 months ago. His numbers are still really irregular. I was wondering should he not be regulated by now? Also now he started panting all the time & developed some brown patches on his skin in the back. Would like to know if you know anything about this? Thank you, Marta

Ask Seth: Litter Box Issues

Dear Seth, A few months ago, my cat started pooping on the floor instead of the litter. I consulted the vet and one of the assistants had the same problem. The Fresh Step litter had added carbon and we figured she didn't like the new odors as it was strong. I tried another Fresh Step and she didn't like it either. So we have switched to Scoop Away Unscented. It seemed to help as long as we kept the litter very, very clean. But now twice she has pooped on the floor after installing clean litter. I could spray the bathroom rugs but she may poop elsewhere! What can I tell a cat sitter when I go on vacation? What is this? What can we do? She shares the litter with our other cat who is fastidious. Thanks. Lillian in Yorktown Heights, NY
