Re: Parvo Preventative Tips

Have to say that whether or not the advice in here is something that is medically advisable or not - I found the statements about vets and money to be REALLY distasteful and nasty. Also I'm sorry but I felt that someone needed to step up and point out what seems to get ignored most of the time. They...

Re: The vet almost killed Ivy yesterday.

I am SO glad to hear that she is doing better! YaY Ivy!! Just a note too ... ALL medical personnel, whether it is human medicine OR animal medicine, ALL doctors, nurses, technicians, etc etc have their own personal bone pile. EVERY one. It's called being human and making a mistake or things just pil...

Re: Skinny Dog

I'd suggest purina pro sensitive stomach just cuz every dog I know that is on it does extremely well and they all look gorgeous with none of the commonly reported problems. I also think the side pic looks fine but that top pic,,, that looks *way* too thin to me. if that was *my* dog, he'd taken to t...

Re: Quick, Easy dog cookie recipes please!

Dried Sweet Potatoes. Dogs LOVE these things.

Just slice up a sweet potato into "chips" and throw them into a dehydrator.

They actually don't taste half bad for humans either LOL.

Re: Killing Our pets with every meal.....

Dry food? Or wet?

Re: Avon Skin-so-soft

Listerine sprayed on your yard and plants is supposed to drive off skeeters too - that they do not like the smell or something.

Re: Any idea what could be wrong??

It could be a LOT of things, that breed has LOTS of back issues and they are little land sharks. Take her to the vet - especially if the dog is in pain. Nothing anyone on the internet can say will help - we can't see or touch the dog and most folks on the internet have no medical training. Any diagn...

Don't give your dog aspirin, take it to the vet so they can see if it is serious or not.

Re: Dogs doing poorly on Good Quality Food?

Well actually, many/most raw feeders are opposed to all grain in dog food. I don't agree, but that is a common stance. Yeah, I didn't feel comfy being too general, as I have only run into them mostly online - and I thus my experience is just a small segment. That is my general understanding though ...

Re: Dogs doing poorly on Good Quality Food?

Alyssa, is that the Sensitive Skin and Stomach formula or something different? I was reading reviews on the Sensitive (it's main protein source is salmon) and it seems like a lot people have had a really good experience with it. Yes it is the Sensitive Skin & Stomach Formula, but both of the Pr...
