Re: Hot Dogs

This is my issue living in phoenix. Early morning temps are high 80's (this morning it was 88 at 6am), so we work more on the tread, go for a spin around the block for mental stim and routine, and have been doing more play and training inside. 10pm it was 102. When we get back from walks, they both ...

Re: Yeasty dog

Hmm... your pup is gonna need an antifungal bath twice weekly or an antifungal wipe twice daily... those feet look pretty rough... Is he chewing at them a lot? No, surprisingly, he is not fussing with them at all. And he is usually such a WIMP! The only reason I noticed this was because he bopped m...

Re: Yeasty dog

Well - are the paws red/irritated? MissKiwi says only 10% of allergies are food caused, the rest are airborne, or environmental. If the paws are not red/irritated, I'd not get too aggressive - but maybe do chlorhexadine soaks a few times a week. You don't want to strip the natural oils by overwashi...

Re: Yeasty dog

Try Natural Balance. We use the Venison formulation for our allergic dogs. You can buy Ketoconazole shampoo at Walmart in the dandruff section, it's called Nizoral (sp?) and also you can purchase chlorhexadine at many feed stores, or online, in a gallon jug. We mix it by hand in with the shampoo we...

Re: Yeasty dog

OT: have you had a skin scrape for mange? Also just because one of ours is chewing her feet on Bison doesn't mean all dogs will, the other one tolerated it fine...odd, huh? I haven't because it was just the ear that took us to the vet and they didn't seem to think it could be a skin infection since...

Re: Yeasty dog

See if your vet will get you a ketoconazole shampoo, or better yet, an antifungal combined with chlorhexadine shampoo. Yeast infections are almost always related to some underlying inflammatory cause, less likely related to food and more likely related to environmental allergies. If the yeast infec...

Currently feeding Kirkland Weight Management with a tablespoon of pumpkin and yogurt mixed in, which finally sett...

Re: Pet Insurance

Old thread I know... I have been researching getting pet insurance but one thing is holding me back... Unlike a full coverage human policy where you have a copay, or they bill your insurance, the money has to come out of pocket upfront, right? I mean I am sure I could call my vet and work out a paym...

and I love my dogs! I hail from Phoenix, AZ am 32, volunteer at AAWL and am looking to get involved with MASH (Sheriff Joe Arapio's Cruelty Division) since the prevention and prosecution of cruelty and neglect is more my interest in the rescue world. I would love to be able to foster, however, I too...
