We are certainly looking to expand our household as well and the Bullies have always been a guilty pleasure of mine, but I would never live with myself to pay thousands of dollars to a breeder. We're in Virginia if anyone may have some good bully suggestions. Petfinder has not yielded much, but we'r...

I had always thought garlic was unsafe for canine consumption? What is a safe dosage as this sounds like a great way to keep fleas and ticks down without any harmful chemicals.

When we fed raw (which I would love to return to) we found that adding more bone to the meal would help firm up mushy or loose poops. Too much meat would make the poops soft and finding that right balance varied for each dog. May still want to give your pup a checkover with the vet just to make sure...

The Petco near us carries Solid Gold which is a nice food, I don't know the price off the top of my head however but it warrants a look at.

I am allergic to dogs and cats. To combat my dog allergies we purchased a very nice AlenAir HEPA filter and I take the 24 hour allergy medicine. Our vaccuum cleaner also have a HEPA filter on it and I have lived predominantly symptom free with our dogs. There are occassions where I get an itchy thro...

I do believe Petco carries Natural Balance, which is on the Whole Dog Journal's best dry food list.

I typically look at the first few ingredients to know the main content of the food... I must say I've never seen Tapioca and Pumpkinseeds listed in those top 4, or Chicken Fat. Are these things good for a dog?

This was my first thought as well. Parvo is deadly to pups, get it checked ASAP.

I hope for the best that it is not parvo. Good luck.

In researching larger breeds (i.e. Mastiffs) I've read that they say twice a day is best. A dog that is fed once may eat with too much gusto and gulp down too much air in the process and this can lead to bloat. In giant breeds this is probably more of a concern than for Pits... I don't know how prev...

WOW. stop take a breath and count to 10 lol Thank you, yea I called my GF after doing all this research and she had the same reaction like I was an expecting father going over all the things that could possibly go wrong.

Puppies, Parvo, Socialization, and Apartments! Help!

Lots of topics here but all are pretty much intertwined. I am getting a puppy (not a Pit bull) and doing so much research the past few months about the proper breed for me, being my first dog, and what would fit into my eventual living arrangements (apartment) and my lifestyle. What it boils down to...

Should I be concerned with giving supplements like kelp to a pup or are supplements something for adult dogs?
