Do I have to worry about my dog getting fleas here? Can I do anything about the feral cat colony in my neighborhood before they start breeding? My desert tortoise hasn't emerged from his burrow yet -- should I be worried?

A veterinarian, an animal control expert, and a nonprofit animal rescue founder answer these and other questions about pets from the community.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
