Re: When to say When

Don't give up on him, it really sounds like his life depends on you. Keep looking for options. I'm not familiar with your area so I'm no help. But I really think you owe it to him. I don't think she owes it to him, I'm not sure how that is fair. She saved him and put her all into making him a healt...

Re: Feeding an overweight dog

Why would the dog starve losing weight on higher calorie kibble? She would still be getting the same amount of calories, just less amount of kibble. I think they meant she would still feel too hungry because she was getting fed so little in volume. Like you could have a high-calorie snack, but it w...

Re: Purina One Beyond dog food

We actually feed this type of food to our cats...and thought we were getting a better food for not so expensive-the bag we get is about $7.50....I never thought about it the way you described it Amber. Well, if you usually only buy a 3lb bag of cat food anyway, then it's certainly not a big deal. I...

Re: Purina One Beyond dog food

I am glad they made a food like this because it is a good option for people who want to feed better quality food but can not afford dog foods like Wellness or Taste of the Wild. I don't think that's entirely true, though. Purina brands are quite expensive for what they contain (or don't contain). M...

Re: Swollen Behind Ear

Oddly, it's a fatty tumor. We're not sure how it popped up like that, but the vet said that if she'd hit her head or whatever it was forming, it may have displaced itself. So she's just going to have a lumpy head, I guess :dunno:

Re: Swollen Behind Ear

Her jaws seem fine, the swelling is all behind her ear. She ate dinner happily, too.

Re: Swollen Behind Ear

She ate a treat just fine. I did pry open her mouth, too, but couldn't take a picture of that. Everything looked okay from what I saw. Had a Siamese when I was little have a tooth abscess that created a hole right through the bottom of his mouth, so I thought of that, except up top. My dad is here, ...

Swollen Behind Ear

All right. My girlfriend called me at work today to tell me our 12yo Pit Bull, Tia, had a "bump" between her ear and her head. When I got home, I felt her ear all over, trying to find this "bump." It wasn't until I backed up and looked at her head that I discovered half the dog's...

Re: TOTW.. No More Venison?!

Yeah, I believe a few dog food companies that had/have venison formulas have either reduced or suspended those formulas right now because of a lowered supply.

Re: How to gain weight w/o going broke

I think I might try a spoonful of cottage cheese for now and see what happens :) My house would be mass chaos if I added canned food, or any strong-smelling stuff, so I need to stay away from that. Plus, that wouldn't help with the cost issue. I think I'm going to try the Diamond Naturals Extreme At...

Re: How to gain weight w/o going broke

I just heard of Native when i was searching google for this issue. I haven't looked into it yet. Since she's not too skinny, and I can up her food if I need to, I am going to skip the satin balls, but thanks, all ;) I just had 4 (or 5?) 30lb bags of TOTW delivered. I'll keep the pirate at 3 cups for...

Re: How to gain weight w/o going broke

TOTW has worked better for Josie than Blue Buff did for keeping weight on, although I have not tried their Wilderness version. Interestingly, when I brought home Tia, my 10yo fat Pit Bull who'd been fed Ol' Roy all her life, I put her on TOTW to help her lose weight. But she's not nearly so active a...

How to gain weight w/o going broke

My little dog, Josie, is a nut. She lives to leap around like a cracked out gazelle. When she's outside, she does not stop moving. Previously, we lived on a small city lot. She could still bound around, but not as much. Last month, we moved into our new home, which sits on an acre of land - fenced i...
