Re: Zymox shampoo.

My vet gave me this over the summer for Melon's grass allergies. It was amazing! Worked great for his skin problems. And unlike other medicated shampoos I've groomed dogs with, it actually cleans well and leaves the coat soft too.

Re: Favorite winter doggie clothes?

Ruffwear jackets have been the only ones I've tried that Riddle hasn't annihilated within a month.

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

RIDDLE IS A FREE DOG! I haven't been posting because there hasn't been anything to update until today. :) Today was Riddle's 12-week x-ray, and as expected she was released to normal activity! WOO HOO! She'll still be sore after exercise for a while- last time, she didn't completely stop limping for...

Re: Anyone knows what happened to petesdoggear.com?

And hopefully when she posts here she stops trying to deflect the situation by accusing other collar makers with stealing like she did immediately on the other board. Sent from my Nexus S using Tapatalk 2 Even if the stealing issue was valid (I'm not convinced) I still don't understand what that ha...

Re: Anyone knows what happened to petesdoggear.com?

I don't care what "personal issues" were going on, not contacting multiple people for a year after taking their money is completely unacceptable.

It's really too bad, because I hear her products are nice. But I would never buy from her, that sort of nonsense is ridiculous.

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Riddle had her 8 week x-ray yesterday! Unfortunately, she's not *quite* fully healed, so she can't be a free dog yet. She can have lots more exercise though! Now we're supposed to be doing 40 minute walks twice a day with lots of jogging, or 20 minute walks with 20-30 minutes of swimming. Finding 80...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Riddle got to SWIM today! Only for 10 minutes. But she was sooooo excited! She paddled around like the happiest little thing ever, it really made her day. The swim replaced her evening 20 minute walk. She did her standard post-swim roll in the car: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v232/savage_desti...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Well, Riddle's knee is doing great. We've got another complication in the form of her left elbow, however. She's got some arthritis in that elbow already, since (of course, it's Riddle) the bones never grew properly. We were treating that with laser therapy and underwater treadmill work before she t...

Re: TTA surgery for Riley - tips?

Oh, I just remembered the other really important thing: for the places where we have wood and linoleum flooring, we put non-skid rug liners on the floor so that Molly wouldn't slip once she was able to walk around the house. I think it did help her and certainly gave me more peace of mind. I got do...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

More updates! A week's worth. :) Saw the Chiro again on Monday, and that went well. The chiro said that Riddle held about 80% of her adjustment, so that's good! we go back in a month for another recheck. Physical therapy Tuesday and Thursday were amazing. Riddle is now jogging 4 minutes out of 20 in...

Re: TTA surgery for Riley - tips?

Riddle had her second TTA surgery six weeks ago. I've been keeping a journal on her recovery here:

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Little update. :) Riddle is doing 15 minute walks twice daily now! She's also doing 5 reps of cross leg stands twice a day... I pick up the right rear and front left leg so she stands on the "bad" leg and diagonal front leg for 3 seconds. Her scar is tiny! http://img.photobucket.com/albums...

Re: Am Veterinary Med Assn ruling against Raw Pet Foods

Because the FDA, The Delta Society, and AAHA also have similar position statements, and the AVMA is following suit. Because raw food ALWAYS has bacterial contamination, and cooked food does not. I cook my food, and there's good reason for it. Because position statements are stepping stones to publi...
