Re: Tully at the Chinese medicine vet

Oh my Tully! I've dealt with adrenal gland cancer, it's removal and later reappearance as Addison's-like symptoms. I wish I had some insight or suggestion for you but I don't. I'm just posting to let you know we're thinking of Tully, and you.

Re: Tess spayed

Dear Tess, if you were a drama queen, I'm sure your mum would pick you up and off the bed. But no, you have to be 'back to yourself' which means you can't be trusted not to jump about. That'll teach you to feel good.

Re: Miami, FL - I'm Hiding a Beautiful Stray from the Law.

I'm afraid since you posted FOUND posters everywhere AC will find out you have her. She's a real pretty girl. I hope you can get her out of Miami/Dade toot sweet! Eh, if you don't post pictures or mention the breed, just say medium red & white dog, female, not spayed. Posting pictures would def...

Re: question for all the male owners out there

depends on the dog. i've never raised a male puppy so I can't say for certain. I would assume sometime around teenage time? 8-10 months maybe?

I have a 3 year old male who squats forward to pee if he's peeing on flat ground. When peeing on something though, he'll lift his leg.

Re: Severely obese lab...

I just wanted to add, it's good to see you trying to help this dog. At three years old, no dog should be so overweight as to be having joint problems already. The poor dog, honestly. Your parents need to be more responsible about his food portions because silly labs will eat all day; they don't know...

Re: Severely obese lab...

Iams weight control ugh! That stuff is HORRIBLE. It is guaranteed to make your dog gain weight. I would feed him a good quality (read: NOT something you can find in the supermarket), high protein dog food. Do your dog some good and get away from the Iams brand entirely. You want the first few ingred...

Re: Strange Bloodwork

Gus - I agree with you completely. It's just frustrating because I felt so helpless. No vets are willing to work with you. I have never not made a payment to a vet when I told them I would. Guess that's a downside of living in a big town :sad: I'm just blessed that the doctor at the e-vet was the s...

Re: Rabies Risk - help

My dogs chased an opposed who lodged himself into the chain link fence, ugh! He had one puncture wound, and I think I know which dog it was, but I don't know for sure. My dogs were both UTD and received additional booster shots but no one mentioned any quarantine. The possum, well... my dad fixed hi...

Re: Joint Supplement Suggestions

Murfins, what kind of cosequin did you use? That's the only supplement I have experience with, so if there's something supposed to be better, I would try it when my dogs are in need. Like I said, I used the equine powder, not the tablets that mtlu mentioned. I sprinkled it on top of his food and moi...

Re: Joint Supplement Suggestions

I've used Cosequin for years on my old boy. I bought the 1400g container for ~$150 and it lasted me 5 years or more. He used to throw his leg out when he played rough with other dogs, and would limp for weeks. I had him checked for torn ACL but they said he didn't need surgery. I can't remember him ...

Oh wow, just what a little spitfire needs. Dogs do so well when they have jobs. Good for little Sheba. Sounds like she got a rare chance at a great home.
