Re: Peeing and not knowing about it?

Ahhh, so it is a result of spaying.

It isn't uncomfortable for the dog or anything of that sort, correct? Its not a big problem for me, just a little freaky when it happens and she doesn't even notice.

Thank you for the help everyone! I'll ask my vet about the meds.

Re: Dogs and Feeding Fish

that makes sense. I try to buy foods that are made in Canada, as the meat sources are local...at least that's what they say. I also pick higher goods.

Anyone heard of the new food, Acana?

It is similar to Origin and Wellness' Core.

Peeing and not knowing about it?

This has happened before. My dog is currently 8 years old. She is spayed, and occassionally, she will "drip". There have even been times where she has been sitting and a puddle of pee would form around her. It is quite clear and color and lacks much odor. I have read that this happens to s...

Dogs and Feeding Fish

Hey guys. I am currently working part time at a pet food store. I know a thing or two about dog nutrition. However, recently, I had a customer come in and literally argue me down (I wasn't really arguing, just disagreeing!), that fish is absolutely one of the worst things you can feed a dog. She cla...

Skin Tag on Gums?

I brush my dog's teeth every second day. I noticed a few days ago that she has a skin tag on her gums, or at least that's exactly what it looks like. When I touch it, it doesn't seem to bother her, and I brush around it when I brush her teeth. It is the same color as part of her gums, which is a dar...

Re: Lost of Appetite

I came upon this topic by doing a search, because I have the exact problem with my girl at this point. She's 8 years old. I visit the vet with her on a regular basis for checkups and yearly wellness testing. Her weight is fine. Recently she has lost her appetite. I rotate her food regularly, because...

Ok thank you..will look into that!

I also heard a lot about adding a bit of garlic to food and apple cidar vinegar to the dog's water...

I also sprayed the whole house with lavendar water, as I heard most bugs, including fleas, hate the smell. Any experience with these methods?

By some vets I'm told that you won't find any traces of infection (heartworm) until about 6 months after the bite...then I hear that it only takes about one month. So honestly, how long does it take...maybe I need to switch my vet because I'm not getting any answers that this particular clinic, and ...

By Ivermectin, do you mean there is a brand called Ivermectin? Because I know heartgard has Ivermectin as its main ingredient as well. Does that mean heartgard actually covers for 4-6 months as well? I get so many different answers from the different vet clinics that I call for information. One vet ...

I'm in the north east USA and there are a lot of heartworm cases around here. I've seen what heartworms can do to a dog so I am careful to keep her on the preventative. And I use Ivermectin 1% from the feed store, I give it every 45 days since there is no need to dose every 30 days. The 30 days is ...

thank you very much guys. I have no problem with marking 45 days on my calendar..if you think about it, its smarter and friendlier for the dog too..it could mean a difference between 4 or 6 doses for the entire season..that's alot less chemicals to use, no? Anyways, thank you, I feel better :) :bowd...
