Sure ya can! A clicker is just a behavior marker, it doesn't have to be a noise. I use a thumbs up instead of a clicker, which I like better anyway since I can't ever accidentally leave my thumb at home ;)

Re: Partially deaf???

Quite possibly :) I don't frequent this forum as much as I used to, but I poke around from time to time. I am extremely well aquatinted to raising, training, and living with deaf dogs. If you've got specific questions, I'd be happy to chime in with some advice.

Re: poop-chute problems

I'd do a pure elimination diet. Start with canned whole fish, NOT in oils (which are likely soy, canola, or other veg oils that are NOT healthy for the GI). The bones are important and will allow you to do an elimination diet for longer than just fish meat. No treats, nothing but whole canned fish,...

Re: poop-chute problems

Well, by bland I mean strictly meat and pumpkin. Maybe that's note bland enough for what you are talking about, here, though. The diet he was on previously as well as the new one do not contain any of the typical wheat, dairy, corn, soy allergens anyway. He's been on a mostly fish-based, grain-free ...

Re: poop-chute problems

We did a bland diet for about a week after his first vet visit, but that was also while he was on meds so it's tough to say if it had any effect or not.

poop-chute problems

With an issue like this, I figured the topic at least needed an amusing subject title... I haven't posted here in a very, very long time - probably like 2 years or so. Jack is almost 9 now (seriously, when the heck did that happen??!), and oldmanhood is starting to creep up on him. For the past 2 mo...

he does wear a e-collar but I only would ever use the vibration setting and I haven't had to use the setting at all for a while, it's on just in case.

Pet safety, first aid, and CPR

This seems to fit in the health section moreso than anywhere else. I was contacted a couple months ago to do a four-part series for the Seattle Times pet blog on various topics of pet safety & first aid. The first installment is published today and features Nichole's lovely miss Sadie! A new art...

Boswellia serrata

Yup. The supplements I use for Jack are a combo of glucosamine and boswellia. Boswellia functions as a natural anti-inflammatory, and conveniently enough for us (from what I've read, anyway) seems to be particularly effective for spinal issues.

Glucosamine in treats, enough for arthritis?!

Yes, it is one of the Chinese made products. He knows that, and that's why he now only buys the duck flavor. I guess he thinks because it isn't chicken, it's safe. I've only read about chicken being dangerous, but I wouldn't consider anything made in the same factory safe. Thoughts? Same as yours. ...

Glucosamine in treats, enough for arthritis?!

They don't. And (someone correct if I'm wrong) but I *think* that brand of jerky is made overseas, and there have been numerous reports lately in regards to chicken jerky made overseas being a cause of death in many dogs.
