Re: Should we euthanize our pit bulls?

So sorry that you lost a beloved pet. You and your wife must be devastated! I'm sorry you feel the comments on here were harsh but unfortunately even if you and your wife have dog experience, managing a multi-dog, multi-bully home requires extra vigilance. I've learned so much on here about being a ...

Re: Pros/Cons for spaying 8 yr old?

Agree, 8 yo is not that old, and with a knowledgeable anesthetist and proper protocols she'll be fine. My old girl Dolly was not spayed but she was between 15-17 when I adopted her, she lived another 2.5 years and I am still amazed she never got pyo, she would not have survived the surgery I don't ...

Re: Pros/Cons for spaying 8 yr old?

I know two dogs that pyo'd the past 2 weeks, both are now spayed and lucky to still be here. glad your going for the spay Scary! Again thanks everyone for confirming the right thing to do. Uncharted territory for me as I never adopted a senior and never had an intact animal that was older than 6 mos

Re: Pros/Cons for spaying 8 yr old?

1 in 4 dogs will get a pyometra by the age of 10 unless spayed. I don't understand why any vet would say to leave her intact. This would make me question this vets comfort level with senior pet anesthesia and surgery as well, so take care in choosing her surgeon. Yes I don't think he is comfortable...

Re: Pros/Cons for spaying 8 yr old?

Yikes!
Don't want pyometra happening to the old gal!
Definitely will get spayed- seems like the risks of not spaying outweigh the risk of the surgery now while she is healthy- soon as her bloodwork is done

Pros/Cons for spaying 8 yr old?

This incredibly sweet 8 yo female was recently surrendered. My friend is interested in her- and if that doesn't work out she may end up here because she is just sweet as honey- that's her name actually. My vet (who is over 70 yrs old) said not necessary to spay at her age- I have never had an intact...

Maybe Red? Sticky on teaching to ignore other dogs

I remember a great long post about teaching a dog to ignore other dogs while walking on leash. There was a step-by-step that explained clicking-treating at the moment the dog recognized another dog was in the distance, yet the owner was able to get the dog to look at them. Then gradually build on th...

OK thanks- I wrote a letter- Bristol is 2 towns over from me. I noticed some of the commenters brag about taking their "mushy" pit bulls to dog parks and then bash "irresponsible owners". Sigh.
