Re: After care of blockage surgery

Just got back from getting his staples removed. He was actually good and left them alone, I worried for nothing. Didn't need any cones, donuts or anything. :thumbsup:

Re: Urinary trouble

Usually if the specific gravity is low, the kidneys aren't working properly to concentrate the jrine, that is part of their function. I would think that would show up in the bun and creatinine in the bloodwork though. That is sure a lot of water for him to be drinking, have you tried only putting ou...

Re: Hair growth

The only thing I can think of is salmon oil, since it is good for fur and skin, but I don't know about making the fur grow back. Do they have Rogaine for dogs?

Re: After care of blockage surgery

Yes, I can. That will probably be the best thing to do. He came back home last night and is doing fine so far. I am so glad to have him back home. The vet said too that it could have been in there since peach season. He could have eaten a whole peach off of the counter and I would have assumed the p...

Re: After care of blockage surgery

I just went to visit him and take him some food. They said he could go home tonight if he would eat something. Hopefully he will eat his food, he wouldn't eat it when I was there but he seemed to be doing fine. She said he might have eaten the pit when it was fresh and it had been sitting there all ...

Re: Canned vs. Dry food

I can see how it might be easier for an older dog to digest. I'm glad you found something that helps.

After care of blockage surgery

Roscoe had surgery for a blockage yesterday. They said they retrieved a peach pit out of him, which I don't have the foggiest idea where he could have gotten. We haven't had peaches since they were In season this summer. Anyways, we have one of those inflatable donut collars, but I am wondering if I...

Re: Canned vs. Dry food

Mostly I would think whatever works best for your dog and is affordable for you. I just looked at dogfoodadvisor.com, thinking they might have an article on it, they didn't but the reviews might be helpful for you. One thing I've heard is that dogs teeth tend to stay cleaner with canned food, contra...

Re: Roscoe has a broken canine

She said we didn't have to do anything now, just keep an eye on it. It's just chipped, no exposed pulp. All four of his canines and some of incisors are worn down, probably from his fondness for dragging logs out of the river and chomping on Nylabones. I think I'll order some softer Nylabones and tr...

Re: Roscoe has a broken canine

Oh gees, all four, how awful!
It's a top canine. I don't think the pulp is exposed, but it could be fractured more than I can see.

Roscoe has a broken canine

I just discovered that Roscoe has a broken canine, it is chipped at the end. It is also a bit discolored. There isn't much choice but to pull it, is there?

Re: This is starting to look less like spondylosis

I hope you get some help at the specialist. The way her legs collapse is similar to my late boxer's did when she had arthritis in her spine. :hug:

Re: Pioneer Dog Food

The comments below the dogfoodadvisor entry don't sound too great though, I don't know if I would try it.
