Re: Protein percentages

You have to determine the % dry matter and then convert it over for both foods to compare. If a dry food is 10% moisture then it is 90% dry matter. If the protein on the bag says 30%, than you do 30 x (100/90) = 33% protein on a dry matter basis. For canned food, say it's 80% moisture, then it is 20...

I get mine at tractor supply, it's about $46 out the door here. I fed the prairie one first and everyone did well, then I switched to the pacific stream one because I liked the Salmon formula

I really like TOTW and it's all ages. My older dog and pups all do well on it, and it's a decent price.

Dogs get tape worms from ingesting the flea carrying it. Your dog can get them if the one dog brings fleas over (carrying the tapeworms) and your dog ingests one. Treat the dogs for fleas and tapeworms to be safe.

Show everyone how great your dog(s) is/are. Signing an online petition is not going to help. BabyReba- Miami-Dade was grandfathered in, as the...

Havoc's are always red too, not all red, just the bottom part. I always thought it was from frog laying on the carpet and then army crawling...I am interested in knowing what your vet says. He doesn't lay in urine or pee on himself, so I know it's not that [for him].

Terra's OFA Prelim X-Ray

Terra went in yesterday for her OFA hips preliminary, she was a good girl and did not need sedation. She is one week away from 7 months old. I think they'll come back good, which makes me very happy! Now, the long wait for the results... http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g12/innocence621/ShoreboysVo...

If it were my dog, I would do the xray. It might not be able to show some things, but there will be gas patterns that can lead to the assumption of a foreign object. And they can always do a contrast series. In the years that I've worked in ER medicine and have seen TONS of foreign bodies, we never ...
