Re: Where do you go for cheap online supplies

Thanks guys, It looks like wag.com is a great resource, and I had never even heard of it before. I absolutely love bestbullysticks.com. I immediately bought this grab bag. Anything I get that is too small can be donated, and I love mysteries! http://www.bestbullysticks.com/home/bbs/page_6644_21/bull...

Where do you go for cheap online supplies

So, I usually buy all of my pet supplies from Amazon, but have run across a few really cheap websites that seem to have a good selection. http://www.yourdogsuppliesstore.com http://www.entirelypets.com/ http://www.dog.com I was wondering if anyone has heard about/purchased from any of these websites...

Re: Separation Anxiety Getting Worse

Hey guys, Thank you all so much for your advice. The Reconcile is doing well at helping him calm down enough to respond to the behavior modification exercises we are doing, and crating is looking like the way to go. I found a trick with that. He won't eat while I am gone, so the Kong always lays on ...

Re: Separation Anxiety Getting Worse

Thanks for your posts. I had never thought about crating Daisy next to him. That might help him out. He might be hearing her move around on the other end of the house and it may be upping his anxiety. I have been keeping her in our bedroom so that she doesn't disturb him while we are gone, but she i...

Separation Anxiety Getting Worse

Hello All, About 6 months ago, I adopted our pibble Kohl. When I got Kohl, he had a myriad of health issues and was very low key. Even when he was sickest, he would get extremely worked up when we left him for any length of time. We started him in a crate, but it seemed like all that would do would ...

Re: Victor Dog Food

I switched to Victor earlier this year because of the Diamond Foods issues and I absolutely love it! My Saint Bernard, Daisy, who has allergies (as well as Addison's Disease) is on the Grain Free- All Life Stages (red bag) and it is doing great with her. Her coat looks great and I have actually star...

Re: Joint supplements homework, please?

I used to use Dasuquin and loved the results in my Saint Bernard who has really bad hips and knees. I used it for two years with her, and then it stopped being effective. My vet showed me this other supplement formula, Dr. Bussan's Joint Rescue formula, and recommended that we at least try it. I gav...

Re: Strange Growling (Kinda Long)

That's a very interesting thought Mooresmajestic. In fact, Daisy is due for her three month bloodwork next week, so maybe there is something going on, and her doses need changed again. It does seem to only happen when she is being exceptionally lazy, and maybe she is the one not feeling well at thos...

Re: Strange Growling (Kinda Long)

Ummm, I re-read my post and it kinda sounded like I shook him like in anger to get him to stop, but I meant like you shake someone awake. Gently shaking the fat on his back, like a "hey, whats wrong?" kind of shake....didnt want anyone to think I was being abusive or escalating the tension...

Strange Growling (Kinda Long)

Hi all, In March, we adopted Kohl, our lovable pittie who has numerous health problems that he is working through. We are also working with him with his SA. (He chews through interior doors, baseboards, salivates like crazy, has broken a canine tooth on a crate, and chews on the end of his tail and ...

Re: Trifexis -- how's it working out for you?

I've been using it on my Saint Bernard, Daisy, since it came out. My experience with it has been great. We have fleas year round in East Texas. I would know if there were even a few flea bites, because Daisy has a very high flea allergy and gets hot spots easily. It doesn't prevent ticks, but regula...

Re: Heartworm Treatment Success Story

In certain dosages, Levamasole slowly kills off the adults within a one month period from what I understand from the vet. He fully expects her to test negative on her antigen test in six months. It's not like other slow kill methods because it's not waiting for the adults to die due to life span, wh...

Heartworm Treatment Success Story

I just wanted to share some good news on this thread. Maybe it might encourage someone who has made the tough decision to start heartworm treatment. Kohl, my baby that I adopted about 3 months ago from a high kill shelter from their euthanasia list, is now heartworm free! It has been a long road thr...

Re: **Diamond Naturals dog food recall**

Does anyone have any suggestions on similar formulas in another brand? I have always fed nothing but Diamond Naturals Lamb and Rice and I don't want to feed any more of the bag I have. (I keep all dog food in airtight storage, and throw away the bag, so I have no clue if mine is contaminated lot.) I...

Intro

[/color] Hello Everyone! I am excited about joining up with other pitbull owners to help me be a better owner. I have recently adopted Kohl, a blue and white pit mix, from a high kill shelter. He was on the euthanasia list because he was heartworm positive and no one would adopt him. When I took him...
