Re: Babesia, a reminder

Plus, every time you take a dog outdoors with you - you run into the chance that they might run across a tick. Even in an urban setting ... all you need is one dog that has a tick to drop in where another dog is going to run by it once it's fully digested and looking to refill. Plus not all ticks en...

Re: Show you their toys??

Toby does it when he is trying to "trade up" - it is indeed very cute.

It's been a perfect food for us.

Re: Cesar Millan

Hate his methods. Choking a dog until it is nearly dead is NOT something I can condone or stomach. I find his methods horrific. Charlie Murphy probably summed up my opinion about his training methods the best: (there is adult language so I will not embed the video here so folks can avoid it if they ...

Oh that's right, for humans they often will opt to leave the ovaries, huh? I forgot about that! LOL

Thank you!

Toby got his CGC!

He actually passed his CGC last fall, but his certificate JUST came the other day in the mail - so now it if is official!

Just always nice to see him get to show off his temperament and stable nature, as he is such a joyous and sweet dog.

Re: Best and worst dog foods?

We only feed Toby Pro Plan Salmon Sensitive Stomach (not to be confused with Pro Plan's natural salmon and brown rice food).

It has never given him a single issue and he looks fabulous and his health has been top-notch.

Re: Trust your Vet to spay or go with the cheapo clinic?

What Odnarb said. Look at it this way - a spay is basically a hysterectomy. The surgery is done a same way that it is done for humans, using much of the same equipment. Then compare the costs. You would NEVER find a human hysterectomy that was only 400 bucks (and I'm talking before insurance - no fa...

Re: Do you feed measured amounts or let them gourge?

We feed Toby 4 cups a day - unless we are showing/working him, at which point he goes to 3-3.5 cups a day.

Re: The big bad "C" word :(

And chemo is not that expensive (not assuming it would even be applicable in your case). My cat has been undergoing chemo for the last year and a half (currently on more of a maintenance protocol) after an initial prognosis of 6 months. It runs about $85 a month + the drugs, which again are not rea...
