A friend of mine had an application on a rottweiler that she bottle raised and it beats all of the ones I have had on any of my foster dogs. "I am looking for another rottweiler because when the police did a drug raid they took my dogs away." lol At least this person was honest though, huh? lol It s...

My dog has had nasty nasty diarrhea for 3 days now. We take her outside many many times during the day in which she will only do #1. Then she waits until we have been asleep for about 2 hours then bombs away. We fed her a can of wet dog food a couple days ago but I didn't think it would upset her t...

I didn't realize that you only had him for a few days. What was he eating prior to you adopting him and what are you feeding now? Also are you keeping him active and tiring him out? This may help boost his appitite as well if he has not been very active. I would however recommend getting him to a ve...

Pblove that is horrible! I don't think I would have handled that any differently either. The carpet would be ripped up immediately :yucky: I remember when my AB brought in a dead squirrel once and it took us about 15 minutes to realize that it was not a rope from outside :eek: Thankfully he was stil...

Thanks. This is the one of the reasons I don't like to crate a dog(although it is MUCH better than in the house). I feel so bad when they are sick and I see that sad look on their face like they think they did something terribly wrong. All the food was fresh that they had yesterday (nothing out of t...

Mother of god..... what did she get into

I am a HEAVY sleeper... this morning was no exception. I vaguely remember hearing my dog whinning and crying in my dream-like world. Seven am rolls around and I finally start hearing the alarm that has been going off since 6am..... sh*t I am late.... again. I sit up and immediately something strong ...

How long has he been refusing to eat? And have you been catering to him every time he refuses to eat the dry food? He won't starve himself, just quit worrying about it. If this is the food that you feel comfortable feeding him then feed it. If he doesn't eat it within so long pick it up and wait unt...

Glad your pup is doing better! You might cook up some rice and chicken, that's a good bland diet that will help her. And if you can find a better food for her than Puppy Chow, that would help, too. You can moisten the dry kibble with some warm water, that will make it easier for her to eat, just le...

I just wrote this in another forum about food allergies: Nutro is better than the normal junk advertised but in my opinion it is lower quality than Natural Balance. The con about Natural Balance is the Omega 3:6 ratio is off so you have to suppliment aditional Omega 3's. I also recommend contacting ...

Try and get some sugar in her to boost her up a little. Plain vanilla icecream, karo syrup, maple syrup. If she won't lick it up rub some syrup inside her lips. Also be careful not to make her aspirate while force feeding liquids. A good way to make sure you don't is to make ice cubes out of pedialy...

It is normal from what I have seen and heard. Just make sure to keep an eye on her. If she seems to really be struggling or whining follow your instincts on that, as you know her best. But panting is normal.

Re: 7 WEEK OLD PUP DEHYDRATED NOT EATING.

this is my pup and im trying to find out what could be wrong short of having to pay 5-600 in vet bills , not all of us have money just to walk into a vet office and say here you go. Acutally a checkup by a vet is generally about $35 dollars. After that they tell you what is wrong and then tell you ...

Oh I didn't know she was that old... well not OLD but older ;) I have heard a lot of people talk about their older dogs becoming much more sensitive to noises, but I don't know if they ever tried to desensitize it or not. Working in drives, ie food drives, prey drives. If she enjoys a good game of t...

What is rescue remedy? Could that help with fear of the vets and getting meds? Rescue Remedy is a liquid formula that some people take for mild anixety issues. It should help with fear of the vets, etc. It is fairly cheap so it is worth a shot. Isn't there alcohol in it? lol I would suggest rather ...
