Re: Does and has anyone used Comfortis?

Trifexis is what we use. Works for fleas and heartworms. Comfortis didnt work for us. This works great! And we are in South MS so same problems! Interesting that Comfortis didn't work because the flea preventative "ingredient" used in Trifexis is spinosad which is the same thing that is u...

Re: Food Allergies

Natural Balance has limited ingredient formulas and Acana has one as well. :goodpost: I've fed both types of food... both are great except Bruce got VERY bored with Natural Bala...

Doesn't drink enough water???

So Bruce has never been one of those types of dogs that just laps up water all the time. But I feel like lately he isn't drinking water hardly at all lately. I notice that he likes drinking the water from the water bowl outside more so than the bowl inside. Which I think is weird... But more so it s...

Re: Damien has heartworms. :(

I just called around and was able to talk to 1 vet's office. They said that without seeing him they couldn't really say much, but that they don't use the slow method either, and to wait it out, and hope that the Immiticide production gets rolling again. He did tell me about a product that I could t...

Re: Small cut on the front of paw

No to the aspirin, it will prevent the doctor from prescribing anything safer. Aspirin makes permanent changes that really don't interact well with the other NSAIDs. One dose isn't too bad if he's REALLY hurting, but not more than that, and only if he really needs it (like back pain etc.) Everythin...

Re: Small cut on the front of paw

He is now limping slightly on that paw... and it appears to be just ever so slightly swollen.

I'm going to see how he is in the morning and if it's still swollen or has gotten worse I'll take him to the vet. :(

I'm considering giving him 1 dose of aspirin in the mean time.... good idea or no?

Small cut on the front of paw

Bruce was scrounging around in some brush-y area today and when we got home I realized he had a small cut on top of his front right paw. It's about the size of the top of my pointer finger and isn't really bleeding or anything. Bruce was prescribed Chlorhex scrub solution awhile back for a small pun...
