Re: Concerns of a new parent

since no one answered this part I will. She most likely has a double dew claw. It isn't common in lager dogs but certainly isn't something that needs to be removed unless it bothers her. I groom plenty of dogs with double dew claws and they are just the same as regular dews just 2 nails. Nothing to ...

Re: Purina Puppy Chow....all the good stuff in it?

I would educate them and give some suggestions on what are good brands of food and supplements etc that they should be feeding their puppy instead of just pointing out the negative. Most people really just don't know that purina isn't great food.

Re: Signs of a food allergy?

Twotanks... lay it on the line... what exactly is your real question? I would love to help, but I agree, something here is getting lost in translation, and maybe if you rephrase I can be a little more helpful and specific. My dog has a flea allergy. He has been on antibiotics and pred because he go...

Re: Signs of a food allergy?

I would like to step aside from the food allergy thing because I have been to the vet and the vet thinks it is a flea allergy. I don't think someone (even if they are a vet) is qualified to give me a definite answer over the internet without actually looking at my dog. I still haven't gotten any ans...

Re: Signs of a food allergy?

Did you read my post at all? Yup, sure did... but I didn't read the most recent update until after I'd posted my usual schpeal... I've been here for forever, and its unusual for me to miss an allergy-related thread. Sorry 'bout that. Yep, you responded politely the first time I posted this. I hones...

Re: Signs of a food allergy?

My experience on this forum has been really negative and judgmental. I feel like all the regulars just attack someone with a low post count just to "show off" their knowledge and that is why I reacted that way. I have a low tolerance for things like that. I am already at my breaking point ...

Re: Signs of a food allergy?

Did you read my post at all? I said I brought him to the vet and I gave him meds. The meds lasted a month and a half and he was in the clear until 2 weeks after they were done and now he is itchy again. I can do everything under the sun to get rid of the fleas but if he gets one or 2 bites and scrat...

Re: Signs of a food allergy?

So I forgot to update yall on Gauge's itchyness. He went to the vet and she determined that he was itchy because he is severely allergic to fleas and had a skin infection. He was put on an antibiotic and a steroid to get rid of it. It worked well and he was itch free for 2 weeks after his meds were ...

yep. I have had a hell of a time getting rid of fleas and this is the only preventative that has worked. You need to get it from a vet.

Re: Signs of a food allergy?

Yah, unfortunately my vet only wants me to use interseptor or sentinal and I am not a big fan of sentinal. I am going to get some natural balance allergy food (one that doesn't have most of the common dog allergy things in it) and start switching him over. He is going to the vet on Monday and I will...

Re: Signs of a food allergy?

He is on comfortis for fleas and heartguard then switching to interceptor for heartworm. He has actually been throwing up the comfortis every time I give it to him so something needs to change there. I may try a food specifically for allergies like natural balance to start out with and feed him that...

Re: Signs of a food allergy?

It looks like a big pimple I guess. I am the hair does come off when the scabs come off. He smells bad. He may just smell bad because he is a puppy and still pees on himself lol. It doesn't smell worse when he scratches I don't think but there really isn't a time when he doesn't scratch. His skin is...

Re: Signs of a food allergy?

Yah I know how to check for fleas, no flea dirt, no signs of fleas at all. I am not saying there is no chance one hatched and bit him because that is impossible. I just haven't seen any whatsoever or any signs of them. I mentioned the fleas in the first place because my original idea was that he was...

Re: Signs of a food allergy?

I'll try that. He will be going to the vet for a regular check up in the next 2 weeks but I wanted to get started trying out a different food. I haven't noticed it get worse when he is outside but I have been getting a lot of mosquito bites outside so that is a possibility as well. I am talking 10 b...
