Re: Carpet mill vs. electronic mill

Thanks for the responses. If we're lucky, we'll be able to do the underwater treadmill once a week, but they're only open one of my days off and I work varying day shifts. I would love to find an everyday exercise to keep them in shape and help build the muscle back in their back legs. What a great ...

Carpet mill vs. electronic mill

I know there are many old posts pertaining to the heading, but I'm wondering which type would work best for dogs that have leg issues. I have "Biggs", a 130 pound Presa that I'm fostering as he had to have surgery to repair one of his luxating patella's. He has a low grade patella luxation...

I'm a HUGE fan of crate training too, back when I did adoptions I used to school everyone in how to go about it best. I tried everything I could think of, but with him and my last foster, I've come to realization that it just doesn't work for older some dogs.

Thanks for all your support!!!

I also meant to say than you all for your responses!!! I'm really hoping we're over the worst of it. I'm off work for about a month now (I took off more time after this horrible weekend) and I'm hoping that gets us through the worst of it.

Here is our update. I had a chat with my Vet and we decided to go with the TPLO. I mentioned how concerned I was about keeping him calm afterwards and he said that he would probably need to sedate him. Wow has it ever been a stressful week+, but I think it's finally getting better. So Boss had the T...

If my last post made it sound like I wasn't going to work on crate training him, that's not how I meant it. I am VERY worried though. He is the type to almost go into panic attacks when confined, but he's okay when out and about able to roam (I'm not saying that this is the case when he has the TPLO...

Thanks for all your responses. I was hoping I could sneak by without having to crate train him. My three other dogs are all crate trained and go in when I'm not home, but they've never really had a problem with it. When I brought Boss home and tried it with him, he completely freaked out, trying to ...

It's so hard when their bodies start rejecting the meds and/or their allergies worsen with time. As much as I LOVE Atopica and what it has done for the little bugger, the Vet had given me high hopes that I would one day be able to ween him to a lower dose. Sadly, I've only had to increase his dose t...

I'm so sorry that you're going through all of this. Allergies are SO difficult to deal with when they're so severe. My PB has Atopic Dermatitis and has been on Atopica for the past few years... it honestly saved his life. There had been a few previous occasions where his ears had swollen shut, leake...

TPLO surgery-bed rest for two MONTHS???

I haven't posted in ages. Unfortunately, my baby Boss blew his cruciate and most likely needs to have the TPLO surgery done :crybaby: (I still have to do more research and get a second opinion). My biggest concern at this point is how on EARTH am I going to keep him on bed rest for two months after ...

Has anyone tried the Kong Time dispenser? http://www.kongcompany.com, it's under new products on their website. I'm just wondering if it's durable... I know my dogs and if they know food is in the "dispenser", they will try to find any way to break it. Maybe I could try it out and hang it ...

If I could grab her e-mail that would be great! Hopefully the potential adopter still adopted and didn't buy from a byb.

Hey V,

Do you still need this home check done? I have this weekend off, so I'm pretty sure I could do it.
