Also keep in mind general raw feeding practices dictate feeding 1-2% of body weight per day so, basically, a 1lb bag is a whole day's worth of food for a 50lb dog. If you want to feed up to that per day, cut back on regular food accordingly. It's all the fat that makes the coat shine and makes them ...

I give my dog the apple core every time I eat an apple, unless I eat it myself. And I know about the cyanide in the seeds. So many other things int his world can kill you I figure this is pretty low on the list of things to stress about. I'm actually surprised so many things re toxic to dogs and not...

Re-reading it, I see where the insinuation is. But, I never said all. Making a flat statement like that would be erroneous, not to mention hypocritical since the first part is about my deceased female. I was simply trying to giving a typical explanation. My bad for not relaying or wording it better...

Or maybe... they're wondering why that human of thiers is staring at them..................... When they refuse to poop in front of you they are probably afraid of being reprimanded. Some dogs who were reprimanded too much during the house-breaking period can be that way. Verbal will do it as much ...

My friend fed my dog a mango pit a few months ago. And then my dog ate another out of the trash moments later because he learned it was tasty.

After I chewed out my friend I watched and waited. Nothing. It was fine. And he's 47 lbs.

Whatever she didn't eat I just took back and didn't give her anything else. Before long, she figured out how to eat them. This tactic will work the best. Measure out what she should be eating per day, offer her that, no more. Give her 2-5 minutes to eat and take the rest away. If she's walking away...

Cut them often and to the quick, but don't quite hit it. Walk her on pavement like crazy. If you trim about once a week and let the pavement work like sandpaper, the quicks should recede. A much more drastic method would be to have her put under and the nails cut all the way down at the vet. It's ve...

I bring my dog in the shower with me. I know it sounds a little weird, but after years of wrestling with him in grooming tubs (used to work at a dog day care with a state of the art facility) I finally realized it was just easier to take him in the shower with me and use a plastic pitcher for rinsin...

I've also gotta chime in for the Allerpet. I've seen it do wonders (in tandem with a whole fastitious bathing/grooming routine, of course).

Oops, posted too soon.

In conclusion, the 3 points to remember are:

1. Keep 'em Clean (dog and bedding)
2. Keep them Happy (stress-free)
3. Keep them Healthy (Raw)

Good luck!

Demo is tricky and never really goes away, just goes in remission and can flare up once the immune system gets weak again for even a second. After you do full blown battle with this current problem, you'll have to play everything real cautious-like in the future. Diet is key. Switch to raw foods to ...
