WebMD.com, a site for consumers that provides medical information, isn’t just for humans—the site also has pet health topics. Three quarters of WebMD.com’s readers have pets, after all. Here’s a list of the top five pet-related searches of the year on WebMD.com:

2. Pets in the bed
3. Is my pet normal?
