Use Advantage. It will start killing fleas within 2 hours and nearly all will be dead within 12 hours. Advantage will also kill fleas in the vicinity of the dog. A study done showed that the application of Advantage to your pet can clear a heavily infested house in three months. No other flea treatm...

how about her views that rottweilers aren't from germany but italy and that's why they're supposed to be mastiff like (her dogs aren't even good for mastiffs they just look like fat pig rolls) The trainer that certified me said the same thing. He said that they go back to the Romans. Personally, I ...

Other breeds do get the ears & tails done as it is a part of their history and breed specs. Breeders typically take care of this when the pup is young, before the pain sensors are in place. I don't see any reason not to do this. Even with pain meds, the puppies scream. They are not under anesth...

Natural Balance is a much better food and comes in limited ingredient as well as regular food. Natural Balance can be bought in the same stores as NR and is in the same price range.

Try a product called Arthrimine. It's available at most pet stores. It's all natural and does not have any side effects.

Or maybe... they're wondering why that human of thiers is staring at them..................... When they refuse to poop in front of you they are probably afraid of being reprimanded. Some dogs who were reprimanded too much during the house-breaking period can be that way. Verbal will do it as much ...

If the Nutro does not work (it didn't for my Boston) give Natural Balance a try. They have limited ingredient foods that dogs do well on. And all of their foods are considered allergy free foods. It's available at Petco and I should think that Petsmart carries it also.

According to the Pit/As breed standard the ears do not have to be cropped and tails are never docked. Tail docking was never part of the breed. Other breeds do get the ears & tails done as it is a part of their history and breed specs. Breeders typically take care of this when the pup is young, ...

Hey, if you're comfy and she wants to be there, I say let her. If she isn't hurting you then why not. They aren't just nearly impervious to pain, they are also very strong and can handle alot.

Use Frontline. If you do not have cats, Canine Advantix is better. The Advantage products not only kill the fleas on your pet, but also in the areas surrounding your pet. There was research done that showed that a flea infested house would be flea free within three months just by using Advantage or ...

Total Pet Care Broadway Ave. Holbrook, NY If you want a premium, they have it. Unfortunately, I have to run to Petco for Ferret food. But for dog or cat, I go to Total Pet Care. Their prices are competitive. As a note, Petco is slowly phasing out animals and will be going back to primarily being a f...

Please, be very careful with Rimadyl. It causes liver issues if used for just a couple of months. A great alternative is Arthrimine. You can get it at most pet stores and you will see a difference in a reasonable amount of time. Vets dole out Rimadyl because people want results NOW. But, those resul...

I had a female that, when in public, had to poop & piddle behind a bush or she would try to hold it. And yes, there was the put out, pathetic look of indecent exposure all about her. But.... Dogs don't have guilt or shame or many of the things that plague humans. It's probably just, "ok, it...

Malaseb and chlorhexiderm shampoos are available in gallon sizes. If you can drop the $95 you save a ton in the long run. Just google the product. I know that Amazon has it. I don't know if the wipes or sprays come in larger sizes.

My Boston pukes if he is on anything but Wellness. Having a dog with a sensitive stomach can be rough. It really can be a crapshoot going from food to food. I had a lot of success with Natural Balance. He went down from being sick a few times a day to once every couple of days. After about 4 years o...
