Don't get overwhelmed or anything. You were doing what you thought was best, nothing wrong with that at all. You could either go to the stores around your house and check out the brands they have, then come back here and list them if you want other people's opinions/advice. The other thing is to ch...

It would be nice if you could transfer him to a better quality kibble. That will help with further skin and coat problems.


When Vuk left the vets office for his skin infection, the vet said that Benadryl 25mg 1 cap will help too. But I would suggest any of the pet stores anti-itch spray

it could be a skin infection. My pup did the same thing (while on high quality kibble) - licked so excessively that even his hair started falling off from his front paws, in between the toes red and irritated etc. By the time you take him to the vet, get him some anti-itch spray and shampoo from the...

wow..... I specifically asked my vet if neutering Vuk at 5 months would effect his growth and they said no. Now that he is back from the surgery (just yesterday), I feel bad that I did it that soon. Why do you guys prefer a male to be 1 year old before neutering (except for that growing taller and s...

for best results its between 9 and 12 weeks. A lot of the vets wont do it past that time. And if its done later, you might end up with the ears not standing up right

If it counts for anything, I share my oranges and Grapefruit with my dogs, and they never get gassy or bloated :) But that might have nothing to do with what you're wondering about lol I was just figuring Vitamin C lol.....no roflmao it has more to do with citric acid preserving a certain fat or oi...

Thanks Linariel.....that was exactly my interpretation too, but I just wanted to make sure if other people share my opinion The only thing that I hate about all this citric acid, pre-moistening = bloat thing is that if I mix the kibble with canned or yogurt or eggs and if he refuses to eat it (which...

it might. I've put his new kibble while transitioning in his Kong or Buster Cube and he's been OK.

feeding food with citric acid, pre-moistening question

I feed my 5 month old pup NV Prairie. I chose this food because they have variety of flavors to rotate. BUT, I didnt notice that the chicken fat is preserved with citric acid. I like giving him variety, so one meal I do just kibble, the other kibble mixed with caned food or plain yogurt or raw egg, ...

wow......you have a puppy. As far as I know puppies need to be fed up to 10% of their weight when feeding raw. Dont go by the instructions on NV's site, because they are for adult dogs only. When I was feeding my pup raw he was between 30-35lbs, I fed him 3 times a day 1 lb each feeding. Sometimes h...
