Riley had HOD as a pup and was left with some pretty serious joint deformities and arthritis. He gets Tramadol for his pain which is stronger than aspirin, but easy on dogs' systems than Rimadyl-thus making it safer for long term use. I also supplement his diet with glucosamine, and it's made a worl...

JCleve86-I practically am you! roflmao college student-check part time job(s)-check new renter-check and I still managed to adopt not only one, but two dogs! :)) That said, if I actually saw my application as a rescuer, I would be deeply suspicious. I can't tell you how many animals are returned to ...

Jeez, only dog people could come up with a topic like this. roflmao Riley's a once a day man, which I am greatful for since he feels the need to spin in a circle while doing the deed, thereby making it more diffucult to clean up all in one go. Piper Ann goes about twice a day give or take, but at le...

It may just be that your dogs can't handle BB. There are a lot of other really good foods out there that are in the catagory "better than Nutro." You may just want to try something else. I feed Solid Gold Wolfking, and my dogs do great on that, but I've also fed Natural Balance, Innova Evo...

[quote="alwyzchanging"]There is a specific way youre supposed to introduce food? Please explain, I thought you just give them the new bag..[/quote] There's definately a right way to switch foods. Most dogs, if you switch cold turkey, will get really bad diarrhea or at least gas. I'm probab...

I feed my two Solid Gold, and I was really surprised at what a good deal it is-I buy about one, 33 lbs bag a month which costs me $40.75. So that's less than I pay for my cell phone-or the internet. That said, I would choose Chicken Soup before I fed Nutro, and I would feed Nutro before I fed Author...

'ello all

'ello all! I am a chronic lurcker at this site, and after recommending it to about the thirtieth new bully owner, I decided to suck it up and register. :tongue: Pics will come as soon as I figure out how to resize them-ah, the pains of the computer illiterate. Anywho, a bit about myself: I am from t...
