Re: Lots of face scratching.....

i'm not sure if it was 6wks or 8wks. It's a non-profit, so I'm sure they are operating within their legal guidelines. 2 weeks would be a silly thing to lose your tax exempt status over....

Re: Lots of face scratching.....

Re: Lots of face scratching.....

Called the contact at the rescue, and she asked a few questions, and we've got a vet appt for tomorrow. Sounds like it might be ear mites since I notices some scabs in her ears during bath time.

Re: Lots of face scratching.....

I have to call the rescue and let them set up the apts with the vet. There's also a tiny bit of brown stuff when she first pees. And I'm concerned it might be blood. BUT! I don't want to be the hypochondriac foster home that is doing too much "self diagnosing" ya know? I think I'll start w...

so, we kind of 'went for it' tonight, and volunteered to foster a mama while her milk dries up, she gets spayed and healed up for adoption. She's a pit mix, about 2 years old. We're going to do (to the best of our ability given our household and layout) the 2-week shutdown to give her a chance to ad...

New and considering pitbulls. Here for the information!!

I'm 29, live in MI, and currently have a 9yo lab and 3 children (7, 5, and 1). And a husband of course. ;) We've been talking about adding a second dog, and I'm attracted to the 'people-oriented' personality of pitbulls. Plus, there are a lot of them in the shelters and rescues in our area and I'd r...
