Heidegger distinguishes between concern for things and solicitude for other Dasein. As Dasein is already being-in-the-world and being-with from the start, there is no need to define what another Dasein is to recognize it. In this paper it is argued that Dasein is thrown into circles of care, where the distinction between solicitude and concern is given. Although this undermines any attempts to regard a comatose patient as non-Dasein, it raises questions about Dasein's relations with animals. It is suggested that Dasein's relations with animals could be captured by inserting another circle, for which the German word versorgen might be suitable.
