Re: LEGO: From prepared to paranoid...

Electronic fencing is not advisable for determined dogs or breeds like pit bulls. They were built to take pain and keep going. If your dog is amped up about something on the other side of the fence line, they very well may take the shock and keep going. Building a secure fence is the last ditch eff...

Re: LEGO: From prepared to paranoid...

At his age, it's pretty normal but still very good that you don't see any red flags. Things sound good so far with him, respecting the kitties space and not feeling uncomfortable with other dogs and people around his food. It could possibly change one day, and you'll know when and what to do. Buddy ...

Re: LEGO: From prepared to paranoid...

So I am a newish pitbull owner also. I would suggest on CM subject, maybe not bring it up lol. It will always be a fight with that subject. I also cringe at CM, but its useless to want to try to change someones opinion. But on the actual subject of your post, I was in your situation, except I was no...

Re: Any tips to promote skin health?

Coconut oil is a godsend for skin issues. And mine love it (plus, I get to lick the spoon. :mmm: ). It was a huge turnaround for the two major allergy dogs. One of mine is a Shar Pei mix, which are notorious for skin problems-- and she had them! But coconut oil has helped a lot. We feed raw, so the...

Re: Two females in one home.

Okay I see. I did bring a kitten home on Thursday for the weekend so she didn't have to be cooped up in a kennel all weekend at my school. The dogs have all done well with her but that is something very different in the environment. The kitty is going back today. Ill definitely try and keep things c...

Two females in one home.

Bella and Bailey are both a little over a year. I got Bella when she was about 8 weeks, Bailey when she was about 5 months (at the time that Bailey came home Bella was about 7 months) They have been best buds since day one, I think it helped that they met at my school and socialized there frequently...

Re: Any tips to promote skin health?

Yeah that's interesting about the yeast and oatmeal, I don't think that's her issue though. Her skin scrape at the vet showed no mange and no yeast, and more recently I did a skin scrape on her at school to really look as long as possible at the sample and get some techs to look also and again there...

Re: Any tips to promote skin health?

I'd say you are on the right track with trying different foods to see which she does best on. I have been dealing with a similar issue with my 12 yr old dog, she now can't eat chicken, beef, or rice. I've been feeding her the Diamond Naturals Grain Free Whitefish & Sweet Potato kibble and she's...

Any tips to promote skin health?

Bella seems to be my health problem prone girl. Skin issue, signs of hip dysplasia already, and a random case of panostietis (random inflammation in her back legs with no knowing cause) But I noticed her skin issue when she was approx. 6 months old. Whats crazy is that she was on blue buffalo puppy ...

Re: Greetings from hopeful future pit owner! Advice welcome!

Hi I'm happy to hear you are researching into this breed before getting one. I wish I did that lol. You seem to have all the right reasons to become a pitbull owner. Many of the members, including myself, are all for rescue. I understand why you are cautious. You do not get a history of temperament ...

Re: 2 month old Nipsey pooping blood HELP

A stool sample was a good step. If they sent it out to lab for testing, it may take a while to hear back on results.

Re: Horrible Vet Experience -_-

Im so late on this post, but if you ever do read this I have a bit of advice from my own experience. Probably not as awesome as above. I had problems with a vet I use to see with Bella, he didn't go over board on attention, he just didn't do any kind of interaction or introduction before working on ...

Re: OFFICIAL e-collar debate thread

I've been trying to read through the whole thread and after reading about half way there is things I want to add. I also just want to add onto my post about the emotional effects of using the collar. I admitted it wasn't pleasant while getting my girls to understand the sound and the shock. But I do...

I may get shunned for this but I really just want to put some insight on this topic and my situation. I also just want to say that I read Reds comment over and over again before deciding to post this. Here it goes.. I recently moved into the country on a 5 acre property with my fiance.

Wow. I just went through four pages of poop... Haha but wow was it informative and I really hope you figure out your poop situation soon. I really think it's great you take such serious consideration into your dogs health. So many people dont even pay that much attention to their dogs poop, but it p...
