I've got one gulper who often poops out the bones from chicken legs. Strangely, it always seems to be "facing" the right way to come out with no hard angles (like a baby's head, maybe). Anyway, the other two chew theirs sufficiently but he doesn't. I've wondered if it's hurting him. But it...

That the dogs may start out just fine, but things can change. Tell them what crate and rotate is all about and help them be sure they are totally on board for that BEFORE they get another dog. :goodpost: VERY good point. I'm in a crate and rotate situation right now and probably wouldn't have gotte...

We don't get stuffed toys here anymore because they end up gutted in 5 minutes. Lots of money down the tubes. But they never had any problems differentiating between what was theirs to chew and what wasn't.

Re: Two males together now. Nightmare!

The two dogs play together... and they don't stop. They play rough and we make sure it doesn't get -too- bad but they do end up with scratches and cuts. They will not stop playing. The only way is to seperate and crate them. I'm glad you've got a handle on that early. I have two females who used to...

Normally a dog will express their anal glands while defecating, but sometimes if the dog has softer stools, or sometimes for no reason at all, the anal glands will get impacted. This can lead to infection. It might be worth it to have them checked by the vet (unless, of course, you want to try it y...

http://www.aeb.org/LearnMore/EggSafety.htm The inside of an egg was once considered almost sterile. But, over recent years, the bacterium Salmonella enteritidis (Se) has been found inside a small number of eggs. Scientists estimate that, on average across the U.S., only 1 of every 20,000 eggs might...

I also avoid onion but feed garlic in small quantities in my raw vegetable mixture. I also don't know about a coat/skin benefit but Amie clued me in to the tick deterrent info. I haven't bought Frontline for my dogs all summer and they are critter free. If you did decide to feed garlic I would feed ...

Have the anal glands been expressed lately? Before I knew about stuff like that I a pit named Hannibal who chased his tail like freaking crazy. He ran into walls. Fences. People. Everything. I thought he was nuts. It turned out that his anal glands were totally full and it was itching and hurting him.

I'm afraid you if you start giving them unsolicited reading material or buy them a tarp without asking them if they want one, you will come off as a know-it-all and that you are the superior dog owner who has to "save" them from their ignorance. I know you have the dogs' best interest at ...

I would say definitely not too skinny. Either just right or could lose a few pounds, depending on your preference. Mine are a little leaner.

I am going to start giving her a raw egg daily and see what it does for her. I wonder if it is possible to crush up the shell.... The one thing I do know about eggs is that the shell is high in calcium. I forgot to say that I DO mix it up in my raw vegetable mixture in the food processor, so the sh...
