Foreign Body Removal...#2

So when Lars was a pup he was left in his crate with a rubber toy by my boyfriend at the time (despite the conversation about supervising all toys). He chewed it up and swallowed the pieces and had to have one surgically removed. Ever since then I have kept an eagle eye on everything, supervised eve...

Allergic Reaction to Sting/Bite

My boyfriend's pibble, Ginger, was stung or bit by something under her chin 4 days ago. Her face was swollen (she looked like a Bull Terrier, poor girl) and she developed hives. She weighs 46lbs but since her face was swollen too I gave her three 25mg capsules for the first dose. After an hour her f...

Re: Oldest a dog should go through puberty?

Yea he is fine. All dogs are different. He should have been neutered 2 years ago. How he 'looks' has nothing to do about neutering him or not lol

What everyone has said is exactly right. Besides, you've been told all this before, when you essentially asked the exact same question.

Yea I am the same way haha. He is going in tomorrow because he wiggled a lot when a friend came over (he was in his crate) and bled a bit yesterday. Not a lot but it scared the crap out of me for a minute. I got him an e-collar today too and he looked SO pathetic with it on :( haha poor guy.

I'd say an e-collar is almost mandatory (JMO). You can even get those at PetCo and PetSmart. Dogs *can* open their wounds and once they do, if they get to their innards, it's anyone's guess as to how far they might go. Dogs *have* had to be put to sleep because they ate too much of their intestines...

Swollen tummy after surgery....

Lars had exploritory surgery about 4 days ago to remove a piece of a toy from his intestine. He has been kept calm and mellow. He hasn't jumped or climbed or anything. No walks, no playing etc, just bed rest. Well, it looks like he has udders, his tummy is so swollen. It is also quite swollen around...

It was part of a toy that my boyfriend put in his crate (which he wasn't supposed to do). I think it's pretty big lol. Big enough to clog up my poor puppy's insides :( But not as big as a horse blanket haha!
