in the living room, on the rug or the laminate. nothing vertical, except for when he walks and it swings onto the side of the couch. Its not a dribble, but its not a torrent either. No, he is not neutered yet. The last few times I have just took him up to his crate without saying a word. He hasn't l...

walking and peeing in the house, anyone else deal with this?

This is the third time this week that my 10 month old male pup has walked and peed in the house. There is nothing medically wrong with him, he can hold his urine witthout issue, and I have no freaking idea what his problem is. I think its pyschological, I think he gets internally nervous when he fee...

Did you use Aloha Dog and Cat? That's where I took Friday, and he let me help handle her w/o anesthesia. He is good. :)

Get daddy a beer!

So, in order to quit one of my jobs, my boyfriend told me that with my spare time I need to train my worthless ADD german shepherd to get him a beer from the fridge. :skurrd: :beer: I think I can do it. She seems to work best with clicker training- its the only thing that seems to keep her calm enou...

To my knowledge, there hasnt been any specific brand pointed out officially- Dogswell is just the brand that we carry that made my customer's dog sick.

Well, according to wikipedia, flax comes from a family of "flowering plants"- and "grain" is defined as grasses cultivated for their edible grains or seeds. So yes, I suppose flax is a grain. And he could just have a blanket "grain" allergy, but its more likely that he ...

You might want to consider supplemeting with some cold water fish oil- the essential fatty acids act as an anti-inflammatory and help repair and strengthen the skin- which is a barrier from the environment. :)

Rye just stood out to me because some humans do find it offensive, and I think its just a rather odd ingredient to have in pet food. It's not something that is usually included in pet food- and it IS a grain. I suspect that he has more of a problem with grains vs proteins, because in my experience, ...

ATTENTION! salmonella contamination!!

Just wanted to let everyone know! As some of you know, I run a pet supply store here and one of my frequent customers came in today to let me know that her minature poodle Trixie is in the vet for Salmonella contamination- the veterinarian believes that it was a result of chicken jerky made in China...

Usually I hate to see a dog start on a perscription diet, because I think it is un-necessary to pay that much money for crap. I like to start with a food that has one previously un-fed protein, and one carbohydrate source- feed it for 4-6 weeks, then go from there. Ususally dogs do great with duck a...

Alright, after comparing ingredients of the Canidae All Stages and the Wellness Super5 chicken, I suspect he has a slight problem with ground flaxseed and a real problem with the Rye in the wellness. I wouldn't go with the CORE, because of the flaxseed in it. Grain free high protein options that he ...

That is a wierd reaction to food- usually it does not present that dramatically and as quickly.

I would assume that maybe he got stung by something on a potty break.

But what kind of wellness, and what kind of canidae were you feeding?
