Dogs can certainly be under stress when moving from one home to another, but if your dog isn't drinking water or eating well then you may want to see a vet. If you do not know the current health of your dog, then a visit to the vet will also give you a baseline about the dog's health and whether there are any issues that need to be taken care of.
When I adopted my dog she had parasites if that helps you and we had to see a vet for that.
If you think your cat has had a reaction to the Revolution medication please contact your vet for help. Prednisone is a steroid medication. This article Allergies - Skin may be helpful before you talk to your vet about your cat's problems.

Please take a moment to click on the above link because Dr Hohenhaus has listed some really good reasons why a situation with your pet means it's a medical emergency which means a trip to your vet or a pet emergency clinic.
In a medical emergency it's important that you seek immediate medical care for your pet and not wait for an online reply to be posted to your question. Remember that there are no on call vets here and the board cannot be a substitute for an in person visit to a vet.
Does a puppy prepare you for parenting? Young puppies and babies have a lot in common. They need to be fed round the clock, they pee and poop whenever they need to because they aren't developed enough to do otherwise. They can't be left alone, and they cry a lot! It takes a lot of patience to raise a puppy to an adult dog and to raise a baby to be an adult too.
So if you have a young puppy or if you adopted your dog as a young puppy, do you think it has prepared you to be a parent? Are you a better parent because you have the experience raising a dog from the time it was a puppy? I'm sure that other community members would appreciate your insight so please share your thoughts!
