Re: [RETURNED!]!! 1 adorable female rednose - North Texas

OK, the little red foster puppy has been returned a second time. It's not her fault - this home was not as stable as I thought. The crazy thing is, she is a good, mellow puppy. She loves other dogs, and just likes to hang out. Really she's not much trouble but we already have 4 and she deserves more...

Re: [Adopted]!! 2 adorable female pocket pits - North Texas

It is! I have heard back from both families, and the girls and their new pit mix housemates are totally smitten with each other. DeeDee hasn't even had an accident in the house! Her dad is thrilled. Although he is finding his hats and shoes out in the back yard (I warned him that she is a thief!). O...

Re: [Adopted]!! 2 adorable female pocket pits - North Texas

Due to a Christmas Miracle, the girls were adopted! One the day after Christmas and the other on New Years Day. I seriously thought it would never happen. They were on petfinder through a local group here, and the lady who runs the group like an angel found homes, both people she knows. Both homes h...

[RETURNED!]!! 1 adorable female rednose - North Texas

So, I took these two foster puppies because there was a big animal cruelty bust, and the county was in a huge rush to kill all the pit bills. I ended up having them much longer than I wanted to because they had a terrible case of hookworms - even my vet was vexed by them. One got adopted but now she...

Thanks. Those are some great resources.
Today I went by the butcher and got 9 lbs. of liver scraps for $1.80!
So yeah, both of my old dogs are getting spoiled. It's very easy to hide a pill in liver.

Thanks. Other than glucosamine and Prevacox for the joint pain, no I don't have her on anything. My old Chow is getting some liver also for anemia - it seems to have put a spring in the Chow's step so I am giving some to BB too. Right now it doesn't seem to be inflamed or anything, so I am not sure ...

Osteosarcoma

Some of you may remember a year ago I thought BB had cancer. She had a growth in her mouth, that looked like an abscess. So I had the vet clean it out and pull some more teeth and the vet shocked me by saying she thought it was cancer. She asked if I wanted to biopsy it and I was so upset I said no,...

Aw... I am so sorry. Lucy had this as well. She had times when the swelling was almost gone, and times when her belly was tight as a drum. I wish I had been more aggressive with the Lasix. I was afraid it would cause her kidneys to fail or cause dehydration. It turned out I could have been giving he...

Definitely. The vet at the low cost clinic didn't indicate how bad the heartworms were. It was a snap test. What should I ask my vet to do, to see if it's a mild enough case for the slow kill method? With Jasper, we knew it was mild because his first HW test was negative, then he had a positive 6 mo...

Oh yeah, big surprise there, the mama dog is HW positive.
I guess I can put this off a bit because she is still getting over being spayed.
Blehhhh.

For you Boston Terrier people in North Texas

I know many of you Pit Bull folks love Bosties too or know people who do, so if you know anyone who can foster or wants to adopt, our local Boston rescue is full. Or send them some cash or buy some of their stuff. Wanda's email listed an unbelievable list of animals they have picked up. It sounds li...

Yeah, that is what I figured - some votes for and some against! I know someone who has a HW+ dog and the vet wanted $500 for treatment. No way they can afford that - they live paycheck to paycheck. I feel like the vet should have at least offered her the slow kill method, but he didn't. The dog was ...
