Re: Coconut Oil?

Do you warm it first or do you just give them the little chunk?

Coconut Oil?

I just bought some coconut oil to try for my skin care routine....getting tired of my winter skin heheh. Anyway, I was reading up on the stuff and a few places said that coconut oil is actually good for pets to eat - can help with digestion, skin/coat, hairballs(cats), joint health, and bad breath, ...

Re: Healthy treats

I use the Nutro crunchy treats as Greta's go-to treat. They are bite-sized and come in several flavors, and they are the perfect size for her Kong Wobbler, keeping in your pocket for walks, etc. When we need a higher value treat (company coming over, nail trimming time) I buy the little sample sizes...

Re: Is this a tick bite??!?

update: the vet thought they were spider bites. two of them were faded this morning (including the one I was concerned about) but the one by her front leg was swelled and inflamed. He gave her an anti-inflammatory shot and said to get some Benadryl if that was not helping. :) He also recommended a b...

Re: Is this a tick bite??!?

I should add that I know my area is high in wood ticks; I've found them on myself. But I've never found a deer tick, which I know are the lyme-disease spreading variety. I guess I don't even know if lyme disease affects dogs? ahhhhh!

Is this a tick bite??!?

I was giving Greta belly rubs just now and found three red welts on her underside. They all look like bug bites (raised area with a spot in the middle) but one in particular has me worried because it has a ring around it. I use K-9 Advantix and have never had problems with ticks (granted, I lived in...

Re: Hi from Iowa

Welcome! I live under an hour outside cedar rapids; It's always nice to see other iowans on the board! Unfortunately BSL is rampant in our area. My solution: move to the sticks where no one bothers you haha!

Re: Tick prevention

Greta spends lots of time rural settings in the summer time and I've never had a tick on her while using K9 Advantix. I love it!

Re: Chicken jerky treats from China

does anybody have any good online sources for doggy treats that aren't made in China? After this story came out I went and checked the bags of three different types of treats I recently bought and ALL of them were made in China! Jeez!

Re: nylabone...

Pig's ears over here. Greta can chew on one for upwards of 20-25 minutes and she is a strong chewer. She also loves her Kong wobbler. And my MIL has a toy (don't know what it's called) that is kind of star-shaped that you put treats in and the dog has to bite it for them to come out (it's like a smo...

Re: does this look like a problem?

Helpful drawing tm, but could have done without the snark. Last I checked, this is a forum where people can come to ask questions about their dogs, and when others start acting like they're stupid questions, people will stop asking.

Great photos, Shoshana. Love the flying ears in the second!
