Re: dogs been dripping blood through penis all month.

I'm going to make an assumption that you have a pit bull or pit bull mix. They have an incredible tolerance for pain. So your dog might be in pain and is just not outwardly showing it. My female pit bull nearly had her ear ripped in half by a Lab when she was a puppy. At six months old, she yelped o...

Re: Keeping a diaper on?

Is there any way you can cover the tail only. Maybe some vet wrap around a thigh that goes up and then wraps around the tail. That could help with him getting it off. Like wrapping an ace bandage around your wrist and up over your thumb. Could you wrap the tail and then pin it against his butt or le...

Re: Keeping a diaper on?

It's really just his tail stub that's open now. The abscesses along the side have healed, but the tail stub is still mostly degloved with no skin at all on 3/4 of it. He's doing his best to pop every stitch left on that doing little butt bumps on everything possible. Two diapers on top of each othe...

Re: Keeping a diaper on?

When Honey went through her first heat before being spayed, I tried the doggy diaper route and she would have them off in an instant. It was a pain. So I went to Wal Mart, bought a couple packages of little girls undies and cheap, super absorbent pads. I put the pads in the underwear, cut the sides ...

Re: Severe Anxiety

Be careful with the on and off thingy. If she does well on it, a maintenance dosage might be best for her. Did your vet warn you about the use of other medications or over the counter supplements when on Prozac? You mentioned she is on a lower dosage of Melatonin but I'd stay away from that too, si...

Re: Severe Anxiety

So here's my experience with dogs, anxieties and medication ... Button's had issues since we got him, but they became severe -- to the point that I was considering euthanasia -- about 2.5 years ago. We had "tried" various things, with varying small degrees of success ... a DAP diffuser, a...

Re: Severe Anxiety

There are a lot of different meds on the market, and finding a knowledgeable veterinary behaviorist that can help you make good choices is gold. Where are you located? If no veterinary behaviorist is available then you might have to ask around and find a vet that has at least a bit of understanding...

Re: Severe Anxiety

Didn't even see all these responses! But here's what's happening with Honey now. The original vet appointment I had to cancel because I called into work early. I, of course, rescheduled it but ended up whisking her off to the vet on Saturday because of what she did Friday. On Friday, she managed to ...

Re: Severe Anxiety

I should also mention that she won't eat unless I'm in the room with her. The only time she eats without me is when she's really hungry or having a really good day. Which is rare.

Severe Anxiety

So, I caved and made an appointment for Honey to visit the vet on June 8th. Her anxieties have slowly progressed as she's gotten older into something that makes dealing with her a near impossibility. Just as a bit of background of Honey: I got her from a local shelter and she had some anxiety proble...

Re: Help with way to happy tail?

Honey also had a problem with the happy tail. Most days our hallways looked like a scene from CSI lol. The kennel usually started the problem. She'd bust open her tail in the kennel and it was a mess from there. Heres how I solved the kennel problem. Go to your local dollar store and buy three bathr...

California Natural vs. Fromm

I was feeding California Natural before it was bought by P&G. I absolutely loved it! Good quality food for a decent enough price. Then it was purchased by P&G. I was returning bags for a funky smells and even found a plastic bag of sorts within the food. So I gave up at that point. It sucked...

Cash's Anxiety...

The rescue remedy also works well. I'm fairly positive it's all natural and can be purchased at Whole Foods. You can definitely use that or Happy Traveler while he's healing. Honey also had a nice case of happy tail a while back that I couldn't get to heal for anything. She'd wag her tail so hard in...

Re: Cash's Anxiety...

Back about six months ago, I was working ridiculous hours at my job because my cars engine went boom and I had to take a train. (up at 4am, out the door by 430am and back at around 9pm). Thankfully my cousin was living with me and was able to take care of the pups while I was gone. Now, Honey has al...

Lumps on Honey

Good to hear, kind of amazed the vet thought you were nuts though, who wouldn't be freaking out about a big lump on their dog? Well part of the big lump is her hip bones. The area around it is inflamed a bit because of the cyst. So that takes away the odd shape to the lump. He just thought it was f...
