Re: choosing food?

I have never considered raw before. I think because of cost. Are there any reasonably priced raw food diets???

choosing food?

So, I got allergy testing done for my dog and she is allergic to tons of stuff. The company gave a print out of the foods that she is NOT allergic to. This list is VERY small! I want to make sure that the food I choose does NOT have pentobarbital residue in it. But, the foods that are okayed for her...

Re: Pet Insurance

Pet insurance for our pups is so complicated! I've been through quite an ordeal with Trupanion. They declined every claim stating that everything was related to a skin condition (preexisting condition). She was treated for a UTI and they said that it was a skin condition. Then they said my vet could...

Re: Fish Oil

The Vet had given me "Free Form Snip Tips" and it cost $37 for 60 capsules. I had to give her 2 capsules daily. So, it was a month's supply. Which I feel is pretty costly. At that rate I feel like I should just get a much better brand of food that already has Omega 3 fatty acids? However, ...

Re: Killing Our pets with every meal.....

Novy - yes, that is how I came up with that list. This subject matter is new to me. The foods I listed were free of that residue. Enigma - thank you for sharing that link. I will be looking at that. I am trying to figure out some good food choices for my dog that are not too pricey, free of that res...

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

I personally feel that it is unnecessary & cruel. I feel that altering their ears or tail does not serve a medical purpose. When I adopted my dog, I had to sign a contract saying that I would never do those things to her. I would never plan to anyway. She looks great just the way she is!

Fish Oil

I'm wondering if anyone can refer me to a fish oil that is good. There seems to be so much out there. I tried a different fish oil and her terrible dry skin came back. The fish oil we used initially was from the vet's office and was pretty expensive, but worked great! Is there a fish oil that is rea...
