I think a vet visit is in order. He's not a senior yet but he's getting to the age when things can go haywire. Drinking more and peeing more can be also kidney or Cushing's. I mean, don't worry yourself sick but definitely bring this all up at a vet visit. Thank you. I was thinking yesterday that I...

scaley skin

I have an allergy dog. I am used to the number of different skin issues that he developes as a result. This is a new one that I have not seen before. It started as peeling skin. It looked like he had a sunburn that was peeling, but he hadn't spent enough time in the sun for that to be the case. It w...

Ear cropping hasn't affected any of the scads of cropped dogs I know... the ones I own or otherwise. They don't remember the surgery, and the discomfort is temporary... I even had one get a few stitches removed by her sister (in the blink of any eye, the chocolate!) and she was fine. x2 except the ...

They are marking it. They put their scent on it so other animals know it is theirs.

I think Kirkland is specifically a Costco brand, but I'm not positive. You and your uncle could always go 1/2 and 1/2 renewing the card? Just a thought if it's something you'd like to continue to feed and isn't sold anywhere else. Or do you have a friend w/ membership? It is Costco only. Adult food...

have you tried a shaker can to startle the pup out of the fit? She should give the command she wants him to listen to to stop the fit and create some loud noise to startle him, like a can with some coins or nuts in it. Then when he stops, put him in a sit and reward the calmer behavior. If that does...

Cephalexin is pretty commonly prescribed for skin infections. yeah I know, it was just a thought for the poor infected boy. Cephalexin is a commonly prescribed drug for alot of infections, not just skin. It would be like ampicillin in humans. It's fairly safe with low side effects, easy on the tumm...

I feed the venison, and have no issues. I have noticed a difference in color and smell occasionally and have had no issues with my allergy dog. I know they don't use dyes so color variation is normal, and with season changes, maybe their meat sources vari resulting in smell changes? not sure on that...

Re: interesting visit to new vet

well I have to say that I was disappointed yesterday. I took both dogs in. I do have to say that part of the confusion may have been taking both dogs in at the same time and it was our 1st visit. 1st bad sign- vet tech kept calling Baylee a good boy while taking her temperature. I guess maybe she j...

I have done crate and rotate from seperated all the time, gradually working down, back to together at all supervised times. This worked fine. It not only gave them time to see (they are crated where they can see each other) that the other doesn't do anything they are interested in, it gave me time t...

Did the vet do an x-ray, or a manipulation of the jaw? I was just questioning because when Bertha tore her leg up they thought soft tissue at first as well because the x-ray didn't show anything, and she was partial weight bearing, full weight bearing when intense on something. She was completely bl...

I would keep them. I would keep them hidden as much as possible. I know my vet would work with me on it. No one would know I have dogs. I have a fairly large yard so I could exercise them in that. If by some chance they were found, and it was nation wide.... I would put them down myself so I could h...
