soccer balls, volley balls, basketballs... maggie loves em all!
cheap toys, and good entertainment :thumbsup:

she does rip strips off the volleyballs, and chunks off the soccer balls, but she's always supervised, and she doesn't swallow, she spits ;)

maggie gets horribly limpy in the evening (not weight bearing on her gimpy leg AT ALL. think tripod dog), but by morning she's back to normal. if she gets really bad i'll give her some deramaxx (NSAID from the vet), but i don't like to give those to her very often because it gives her a false sense ...

if i got wild pork, i'd freeze it before feeding it to my dog. that would kill the trich. i don't freeze store-bought pork before feeding it, but most of the time the lable says 'previously frozen' anyways. even if it didn't, i'd stil feed it tho. as for the deer bones, the only bone i wouldn't feed...

I can't see letting a once-loved toy be shred to pieces.

i'm the same way :oops:
i grew up with LOTS of teddybears, so i just feel sad letting maggie shred one.

it depends how he chews it.
if he rips it into little pieces, i wouldn't leave it with him in his crate.
maggie chews the lid off, but after that she just crunches it until it's flat. once it's too challenging to destroy, she tends to give up.

yeah, i know how important the recovery time is, especially with the TPLO. from what i've heard, dogs feel better faster than the traditional method, so they're more likely to do something stupid. and knowing maggie, she'll try. so it'll be lockdown for AT LEAST 6 weeks. probably more. then she's go...

i don't know what you can put on the scratches, but i can sympathise with you! maggie got whacked by a cat in a similar situation, got scratches across her face/eye (not IN her eye thankfully), but i was more concerned with her (instant) allergic reaction than the scratches on her face! i think the ...

thankyou for the insight. it definately sounds like surgery is the way to go! maggie doesn't yelp or complain, she just limps most evenings. i think i'm going to have to put all her toys in the closet, because even tho i won't throw them for her in the house, she tosses them for herself and runs aro...
