Re: Perfect (to me) Feeding Bowl/Dish

:oops: ... ya see the water spots on the stainless LOL. I've used the Pyrex now for a couple of weeks and I wonder why I haven't been using them all along HA !!! ... Perfect !!! As you can see, the 9 inch dish spreads the kibble out a bit too ... that's bonus for Rowdy, because he likes to gobble hi...

Re: Kirkland Brand Dog/Cat Food - Who Makes It?

Kirkland was on the industry wide recall initiated in 2007. One answer I've found and often repeated is that Kirkland is made by Diamond Pet Foods. Diamond has three plants that are located in Northern California, Central Missouri and South Carolina.

Re: ChAnges in feeding habits

Well I think I can understand you reluctance to change things and certainly understand your "confusion" and concern. Maybe Lucy is a picky eater like my Sugar is. Dang girls LOL. I don't like to add stuff to Sugar's kibble either. I don't want her to get in the habit of expecting it, but b...

Re: ChAnges in feeding habits

Well, they certainly won't starve themselves (except for an extremely rare seldom seen disorder I've only heard about). You could try free feeding, just leave the food for her when she wants it or pick it up after 15 minutes. Your choice. She will eat when she's hungry, especially if walked or excer...

Re: Kibble change (Fromm?)

I hear ya on the formula changes. I was an avid Canidae fan until they changed several years ago and gave Rowdy and Sugar bad poops. Maybe the change in ToTW is why Sugar stopped liking it Hmmmm. They could have changed the forumula too, but I used to feed "Before Grain" by Merrick and Row...

Re: Kibble change (Fromm?)

I have no input about Fromm. But I can recommend ToTW if your dogs like it. Sugar got to where she didn't like it much and would miss meals and wait until she was REALLY hungry, to eat. She's picky like that and she didn't like it. Honestly, I've got one word and you don't want to hear it. But, at l...

Re: Yard Fence Questions

The only other solution for containment that would provide maximum mobility at a reasonable price for the dogs that I can think of, would be some kind of overhead trolley system where a couple of pulleys ride on a rope or wire. I've also even seen them run along the ground and installed in a way th...

Re: Yard Fence Questions

That is a beautiful spot MarMar !!! Just beautiful 8) As a renter, the cost of the fence would be prohibitive as a logical choice, especially if you hired someone to put it in for you. Even though you are supervising the dogs at all times, you would PROBABLY still need at least a 6-7 foot fence. Row...

Re: Dog Silencer Pro ~ Opinions ??

I betcha the very BEST thing this device does is transfer some of your money to the source where you buy it HA !!! Furthermore, if it's the neighbor's dog(s) with an out of control barking problem, calling animal control has a much more substantial effect than this device and at the expense of the n...

Re: Small growths on his nutz sack

Thanks for the replies and I have lots of stuff to look up prior to the next vet visit. I'm not (real) concerned about it yet. It hasn't gotten larger over the last four years or so. But I do want to be proactive concerning Rowdy's health. I had a (large) tumor removed from one of Sugar's hind legs ...

Re: Small growths on his nutz sack

HMmmm, if that's the case, I'd rather cut off a small tumor than his nutz HA !!! I guess if it gets bigger, I'll have to name it or something ;) [thinking out loud] Strange though ... I wonder why dogs are the only male mammals with a propensity for tumors on their nutz sack if they aren't neutered ...

Re: changing food

10 days should be long enough for any transitional adjustment from what I've read and what I know from just my experience with my two miscreants. I used to switch brands of kibble every month when they were younger and I didn't mix old with new either. No transition period at all. I figured all the ...

Small growths on his nutz sack

Scrotum, cod, scrot, nutz sack ... what ever Rowdy has had these small growths his whole life. There are no other growths anywhere on his body. At first I thought they were little abscesses. I gently squeezed the larger one and while it has a small firm symmetrical core, it doesn't pop. Then I thoug...

Re: Dog Silencer Pro ~ Opinions ??

I agree with you 110% Stormi. I digress on the humane statement LOL. How about some advice for people who have a constantly barking neighbor dog ?? After all, that is one of the selling features of this device. You can train your dog(s), but how do you train an uncaring neighbor's dog in a non-intru...

Dog Silencer Pro ~ Opinions ??

Don't know if this should be in Training and Behavior or here. It's a product, so I posted here in Equipment. I don't have or need one of these but others might. The Dog Silencer Pro might be good to use if you have an annoying barking neighbor dog or it could be the "lazy" way to train yo...
