Re: Joint supplements homework, please?

I love InClover's Connection. It comes in powder and tablet form. I'm currently using the powder, since it has really high amounts of yucca in it, which is a great anti-inflammatory. The powder has more yucca per dose than the tablets, but comparable glucosamine and chondriotin levels. I also like i...

Re: FML. Riddle, of course.

Well, since cruddy things always get cruddier with Riddle... I think she blew the whole thing. Possibly tore the meniscus. Fifteen minutes into her first off leash venture, she took off after a rabbit and came back a tripod. I had to carry her back partway. Now she's completely non-weight bearing on...

Re: FML. Riddle, of course.

Well, the x-rays today showed that she has in fact torn her left ACL. Which sucks. It doesn't look like a full tear, at least for now. We decided to go for the surgery. I've been thinking a lot about the PRP, but what it comes down to is that yes, it could repair the ligament, but she can and probab...

Re: Thinkin' bout switchin' from Evo to Orijen

Sorry, but I absolutely hate it when someone comes into a thread about a food, toy, jacket, or anything else and just throws a minor hissy fit about how awful it is, and not give any real evidence as to why. I also hate that you're so hypocritical about it- you say you don't like Champion because of...

Re: What can I give her for pain?

What are the ingredients? Arnica is a great natural pain reliever for dogs. We have an arnica based pain medication on hand for Riddle (Traumeel), and it works great for her. The Aches & Pains tablet ingredients are: Glucosamine, Bromelain, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), White willow Bark and Yuc...

Re: Thinkin' bout switchin' from Evo to Orijen

I'm negative about MOST commercial pet diets and skeptical about almost all methods of feeding. I'm also not the only one who I know who has had a difficult time getting any reliable information from them. I pick on them especially because of my PERSONAL experience, as I said, and because in my lin...

Re: Thinkin' bout switchin' from Evo to Orijen

thanks all, it does seem that the price of Orijen is the biggest deterrence to most. I'm glad so many have had great results with TOTW, like i stated i just don't trust Diamond. Curious on how the quality of Solid Gold is these days, been a long time since i've heard much about them If you're not o...

FML. Riddle, of course.

*bangs head on wall* It's looking very possible that Riddle has torn the ACL in her left knee, since obviously she can't have a mismatched set. She started limping 2 weeks ago. I don't know why- I was with her all day, and nothing weird happened. But she got up off the couch and was suddenly non-wei...

Re: Hiking essentials

I bring most of the stuff mentioned above, really good advice there. I also pack a set of boots for each dog, in case the terrain gets rougher than I thought, or if someone cuts a pad/rips a toenail. We also have the dogs wear bear bells, since we have bears and cougar in our area.

Re: what to do for dry skin other than fish oil?

Flax is pretty useless. Dogs need EPA and DHA, which is found in fish oil. Flax is ALA, which dogs can't use. They can convert ALA or DHA/EPA, but most of the usefulness is lost in the conversion. Coconut oil does really help Melon with his dry skin, although that's in addition to fish oil. Vitamin ...

Re: Feeding a lot and no weight gain.

He doesn't need to gain any weight at all. He definitely needs some muscle, but any extra weight added on by dumping more calories into him will just make him fat. Muscle will make his weight on the scale go up, and fill him out so he doesn't look so lean. Exercise, however, is what's required for t...
