Thanks for clearing that up! He's regurgitating for sure as the stuff comes up immediately with no warning.

No. Regurgitation is a passive process, no warning and it just comes up after eating.

Vomiting is an active process, the dog looks sick, there may be drooling and activation of the abdomen as it brings the food up

Thanks for the response. Did abit Google search on "puppy pyoderma"...Seems like not puppy pyoderma as it tends to grow on bare skin like their tummy...However we tends to find these stuffs where fur are grown

It can happen anywhere on the skin. Furunculosis? Sebaceous cyst? Fungal infection? Many things can be the reason why these lesions appear.

Well, in Australia an exotic pet would be a reptile or a snake. I dont deal alot with these types of animals and I refer them away.

You'd have to check with AVA if the 'exotic' pet is legal or illegal in SG

It means it is sick and needs to see a vet ASAP

Hey there, seeking some help please. I've got a two cats at home and one of them is over grooming herself quite badly, resulting in large swathes of bare patches. When petting her the patches don't seem to be rough and there's no flaking. Or scabbing, so I'm thinking it's a behavioral issue. The cats have been living together since very young and they usually just keep away from each other. Any suggestions as to how to prevent/change the behaviour?

Nope not on any flea control stuff. Re vet, I had a friend who's a vet nurse look at her and she says it doesn't seem so so I haven't, but I probably should, huh.

Behavioural issues are diagnosis of exclusion. Meaning we put certain conditions down to behavioural problem only after exhausting all tests and treatment and can find nothing wrong with the animal.

I'd say bring your cat to a vet and try ruling out fleas, diet, endocrinopathy, etc
