Cat has ongoing aggression after a fight & upcoming transition

Looking for a little direction with our 9 y/o female kitty, Nermal. We took her to the vet to get a sudden limp checked out a little over a month ago. X-rays showed arthritis and mineral deposits in her hind leg joints. She is only 9, but the vet suggested obesity could be a factor in the developing arthritis. Since bringing her home we gave her the pain medication supplied by the vet for the first week (until it ran out) and have been giving her glucosamine supplied by the vet with her food daily and restricted her from jumping up on things -the limp is much less noticeable now. However, a couple of weeks after coming home there was a fight that took place when we weren't around between her and our two male, younger kitties. Based on the cleanup it was a pretty bad fight and even though the boys sustained minor injuries and she wasn't injured that we could see, she has remained angry and defensive towards them and we have to keep them separated when we aren't home/around. She hisses at them every time they come nearby and if they attempt to touch noses with or sniff her, she either hisses or starts a fight. She is touch and go with us as well, can be very cuddly and loveable, but if we do anything she doesn't like (pick her up, make her move, or don't let her be in a space that she wants to be in), she hisses and growls at us too -which starts a fight with the other cats if they're around, as they are defensive of my husband and me. She's always been a little entitled and persnickety, but more in a loveable way and never violent or to this extreme. She's never had trouble getting along with her brothers like this either, especially for so long. It's been about 4 weeks since the fight took place. I'm starting to think there is a bigger issue than just drawn out resentment from a bad fight, but the visit to the vet just before the fight only showed the arthritis/mineral deposits. Could she be acting this way because of pain? If so, is there something we can do to help her with that? The tension between our cats is getting very difficult to manage and I feel like it's only a matter of time before one of them gets hurt more seriously (there have been scratches that come close to their eyes and I worry about Nermal's arthritis with her running up and down stairs during a fight with her arthritis). Also, we are expecting our first (human) baby in December. I'm worried about dealing with her adjustment to that while she's still so upset about this at the same time and I'm not sure how to prepare the two younger male cats for it either, who are still trying to figure the new Nermal out.

Diabetes - dog been on insulin long time

Hello: I was wondering if you could help. I have a busy site and one of my customers has an older, blind diabetic dog who constantly battles infections. Once the dog is placed on antibiotics, the dog's blood sugar level spikes. The owner is desperate for help. Her dog is very anxious as well when the owner leaves. The owner is afraid to give any herbs since she believes that many break down into sugar and affect her dog's diabetes. Any help would be great. Thank you. I just found your site and love it.

Recent purchases

I recently purchased Chews for my feline with severe arthritis. They have arrived but they are so hard she is unable to chew them. Solution? I also purchased on the same order ArthroiONX. She won’t eat them from my hand so I have been putting them in her water but they dissolve and lay on the bottom of the dish. She is difficult to medicate so I have put other treatments on her food but refuses to eat the food. Do you have other suggestions for administering these?

possible cruciate damage

I have a 6-year-old Malamute who may have just injured his cruciate. I've had it happen to Malamutes I've owned in the past. I am absolutely opposed to TPLO. I'm even opposed to getting a drawer test done due to the possibility of causing additional damage. Would Arthro or Promaxal be an effective alternative to surgery? I know that if the ligament is torn that his joint will slowly deteriorate, so I was hoping that one of these products might help prevent that. I am also adding glucosamine and chondroitin supplements and I have just switched him over to Stella and Chewy's raw-coated kibble to give him some of the advantages of raw. Thank you for your time.

My dog has hip and back issues

My 7 yr. old Keeshound had an operation for cysts on his back. Shortly after that he has gone down in the back, acts like he has a cold in his nose and eyes, I have been giving him allergy and over the counter hip meds. I read on the internet about IONx for hip dysplasia. Do you think it is to late for him or should I try it. This has been going on for over 2 months. This is my last resort.
