Re: Stuffed Kong on raw diet?

Plastic is porous, and plastic cutting boards have plenty of marks and grooves in them. So I can never cut raw chicken again? Really limits my cooking options. Riddle has had cancer and eats zero carbs, so yes it is hard to find Kong stuffings she can have. Melon has digestive issues and cannot hand...

Re: Stuffed Kong on raw diet?

Well, guess I can never eat chicken again, since that would require it to touch a dish before cooking! And I could never cut it into pieces before cooking, since the knife and cutting board would be forever tainted! Since it is apparently impossible to wash salmonella off.

Re: Orthopedic Vet/Surgeon Recommendations in Portland?

So it WAS Tim McCarthy, although my phone apparently corrected it to McArthur. lol He was really great. I only met him a couple times, for the initial consult and then on the actual surgery day, but was very impressed. I was also inclined to trust him because not only does Riddle's ortho vet love hi...

Re: Orthopedic Vet/Surgeon Recommendations in Portland?

I CANNOT think of the name of the ortho very who fixed Riddle's elbows. My ortho vet here in Bend, who did Riddle's knees, recommended him for her elbows and he came down from Portland to do it. He did an amazing job on her elbows. I'm on my phone now, but when I can check my email on my computer I'...

Re: Stuffed Kong on raw diet?

I still give Kongs with peanut butter. You can just stuff them with raw ground meat though. Although sticking to what you described, but not using kibble would probably be fine. =] Raw meat stuffing sounds like a really bad idea to me. Just because dogs can eat gross things doesn't mean cleanliness...

Re: Winter/Cold Weather Shampoo Recommendations?

The best thing I've found for dandruff in 9 years of grooming is Nature's Choice oatmeal conditioner. It's miraculous.

Re: Dog poops way too much

How much does she weigh?

3 cups a day is a lot of a good food. Depending on how big she is, she may be overeating, which can cause diarrhea and tons of poop.

Re: Looking for a New collar

Leather collars are made out of much sturdier and thicker material than belts, at least good quality ones are. I find leather much sturdier than any nylon- Riddle annihilates nylon collars, but her leather ones hold up very well. Her Ella's Lead collars still look new years old. If you order a leath...

Re: Looking for a New collar

Blocky Dogs or Stillwater will have collars like that.

Although thinking nylon is stronger than leather is pretty hilarious.

Re: No-Pull harnesses

Personally, I'm not a fan of any of them. Unless they stop pulling 100% immediately, which does not happen with the majority of dogs, they can cause shoulder damage over time. I know they're supposed to be the "humane" alternative to things like prong collars, but personally I don't like t...

Re: Cerberus Designs

I really like the looks of the Cerberus collars, but I don't have any. I really like the Praetorian, I may get it at some point for Melon.

Re: ACL repair. To knife or not.

I've been talking to our local physical therapist about arthritis in Riddle's legs, since she has had TTA repairs on both knees now. I was wondering when I would see the arthritis begin, since her right knee was done 3 years ago. She told me that she so far hasn't seen a TTA dog with significant art...

Re: Harness or no harness?

For a puppy, I like harnesses, ideally a front clip. Eventually they can graduate to a flat collar if you like. I just like to avoid having dogs strain against their necks and this is more common in puppies and young dogs. But pulling or straining on a front clip harness pushes the shoulders out of...
