Have you talked to your vet about allergy testing? They should be able to do interdermal testing (or refer you to someone who can) to find out what substance your dog is allergic to.

I was just discussing this with a pathologist(I believe that is what it is called) last week :) As far as steroids in allergies go, corticosteroids suppress the immune system. So, giving steroids to animals with allergies doesn't change the allergy; it just suppresses the immune response to the alle...

ok, for the people who fast. How do you do it? do you give them chicken broth or something? is there any special thing i should do? When I fast the dogs I make sure they have a calm lounging day. Like the race horses, the dogs are off on Sundays unless a special event. If there is a special event, ...

I have always believed in fasting once a week as well, especially on the Raw diet. This day of digestive rest gives the body time flush itself and replenish the bacteria, as well as giving a probiotic weekly/every few days. On the day of fasting the dogs I give them a raw meaty bone for them to chew...

I have a question. Any vet I have called says they will not treat or do surgery on any pets without currents vaccinations. Is there any way to get around that? My cat Punkin Pie ended up getting a tumor that was related to a vaccination she had so she gets an exception. I don't want to vaccinate my...

Oh wait what about eggplant? I have never actually bought one but they look interesting and I keep wanting to get it in order to disect it :crazy: just to see what it looks like. And since I won't eat it I might as well feed it to the dogs if they can have it. :))

I am not trying to sound cold or mean but I would continue to feed him what you are, if that is what you are set on, get a feeding schedule down and stick to it. Quit catering to your puppy. You give the pup the dish of food and leave it there for 15 minutes in the crate. If he does not eat it take ...
