The only fruit that I know of that you can't feed dogs is grapes (and of course anything made from grapes such as raisins) because they are toxic to dogs. I've never heard of any problems with any other fruit.

Wow, that is just so awful! Sounds like your old vet was just trying to get as much money out of you as possible, which is just so sad. Is there some place that you could report your problems, so that if other people are checking out vets, they'll see bad reveiws? I'm glad you found Bear a good vet ...

MsPsychotic, I had the same problem with our first vet. I'd never been to a vet before, so at first I wasn't sure if I was reading into things too much. But I just thought it was very strange that the vet was never friendly to Cayenne, never petted her, came close to her, or inspected her. There's s...

Foot licking is a sign of food allergies as well. My Cayenne licks her back paws raw when she's getting something she's allergic to. Switching foods is a good way to test it, but you have to make sure there are absolutely no matching food ingredients. While protein is the most common ingredient they...

pitbullet - this sounds very similar to my dog. She was licking her paws and biting at her legs very shortly after we got her. It progressively got worse, she started scratching all over the place! It was horrible. She had bumps all over her back, with hair falling out. She scratched at her face so ...

I'm looking at getting insurance through PetPlan USA http://www.gopetplan.com. They seem to have a better plan than ShelterCare or PetCare. Instead of limiting per incident, they just give a yearly max ($8000, $12000, or $20000). And they don't charge extra for APBT. I got a quote for the $12000 pla...

The same thing happens to my husband. We thought she had fleas when we first got her, but I never got any bumps, and we couldn't find any fleas on her. We never knew he had an allergy to dogs until we got her, but it's very mild, so not a big deal.

Eagle Pack is a great food! I have had nothing but good experience with their formulas. They are probably one of the only companies who haven't had hardly any complaints, and source all of their ingredients from the US so I consider them to be trustworthy. That's very good to hear! :thumbsup: Like ...

eagle pack holistic

Any thoughts on Eagle Pack Holistic blend? I'm switching Cayenne off the vet's allergy prescription diet, and I was going to buy Canidae Lamb and Rice formula, but the store I like shopping at didn't have it. So instead, I picked up Eagle Pack Holistic Lamb and Rice. I like the ingredients, but I ju...

I'm curious, does this stuff really work? Cayenne's been freaking out over the recent thunderstorms, shaking and panting. It really is just exhausting. And we're expecting a few more thunderstorms later this week. :crybaby:

pblove - I don't think it's a hot spot since she's not scratching at it, and it really doesn't seem to bother her at all. Everything I could find about hotspots is that the dog can't leave it alone, and Cayenne hasn't paid the spot any mind. Bullyball - I'm pretty sure it's not ringworm, it doesn't ...

raw spots

So we just found about a dime sized raw spot on Cayenne this morning, right below her collar on her back. It's completely raw, missing hair and skin. It almost looks as if she had a skin scraping like at the vet. It's not somewhere that she could reach to chew, so I know it's not that. And its too r...

sarallyn, Dogs burn fat for energy, so it's better for them to have a higher fat diet if you're going to be doing intense exercise. I just googled it, and found a good article about higher fat diets for dogs. http://www.doglogic.com/b2bfat.htm Based on what I know, I would stay away from the low fat...

Wow, I was confused for a minute...I thought the ingredients you posted were for the Royal Canin, and I was impressed! lol The Wellness Core looks good, but I have read on quite a few threads of people not liking how their dog did on it. I think Petco sells Solid Gold now, which is a pretty good foo...
