I forgot about this thread. Here's an update. Mika is now eating (and LOVING) Merrick - her favorite is Grandma's Chicken Pot Pie. I switchi it up for her by using a little chicken broth instead of water to make the "gravy" with the kibble. Sometimes I'll add some cottage cheese (which she...

Chewbecca - I've been giving Mika benedryl lately too! Although I wanted to make the food switch clean with her - so she hasn't had any benedryl for over a week. Hmmm...I wonder if it had something to do with the allergies? Mika NEVER drools either. I've only seen her like that twice...and once was ...

Just letting you all know that Mika is all fine now. I guess I was worried about nothing. I think it was just an upset tummy. She never threw up though. I was at about half and half for old and new food, so I put a little less new food and a little more old food inher bowl last night - she chomped i...

Sorry I haven't been able to log on since this morning. Thank you all for your replies and your concern. Mika is with her Gramma all day - and I've talked to my mom several times today (I was so worried this morning), but she says Mika is no longer drooling and is acting fine. Nothing spooked her. S...

I was thinking it probably had something to do with the food. Although last night she was fine and this morning she was fine...she didn't start acting funny and drooling all over the place until I was getting ready to leave for work. I'll make sure that I do the switch slowly and keep it to just a l...

Question about excessive drooling

My dog, Mika, rarely ever drools. When she does, it's usually when she's running around the yard like a maniac or she's sniffing out the chipmunk that she chases. Other than that, she never drools. This morning, when I was getting ready to leave the house, she was drooling a LOT. There were drips al...

Oh ok, I've heard a lot of talk about salmon or fish oil on here, but had no idea where to find it. So, I can just go to the store and buy fish oil capsules in the vitamin section? Use that?

haha - we've got to all stick together, right?! :)) I'm going to give it a try - I think between the variety and the canned food too - she'll be more interested in it. She's been itching a lot, shedding a lot...we've been to the vet and she's gone on prednisone which helped, but only while she was o...

She should be fine going a couple days without food, unless she has a medical condition. Even if she's just picking at the food, she should be fine. When you give in, she learns to wait and she'll get what she wants. Just put the food down for 15 minutes, pick it up if she doesn't eat it. Try that ...

My guess would be if she's eating the lower quality moist foods, she's responding to the sugar, not the texture. They actually have straight sugar, or sugary substances added. Try Merrick kibble, it makes a gravy when you add warm water. Or get a high quality kibble and add a squirt of bottled grav...

Ok, I have a question. It seems as though my dog is having an allergy to the food she's eating. I know it's a bad choice, but she's terribly picky and I've tried a few different brands of "good" food, but she won't touch it - even after days! Tried Wellness (both the lamb one and the white...

nice bump - just in time for prime tick season. I haven't posted on here in AGES, life and work have been super busy, but I see there is someone from Union - that's right next to me! So, Hi. :) I still use Advantix K9, I think it's great stuff. Mika never has ticks attached anymore, like she did wit...

Thanks!!!

Foster Home Needed

Hi all - I haven't posted on here in forever! I received this email today from a fellow volunteer at the rescue I help out at...I would like to post it here in case anyone is in the area and would be willing to help. Feel free to cross-post: I received a distressing email last night from a woman who...
