Re: Stuffed Kong on raw diet?

I don't use the kongs much now that my dogs are raw fed but when needed I stuff with ground meat or poultry hearts. Nothing is easy to clean out of those things so not sure it matters.

Re: CCL repair walking video - Feedback wanted

Quit looking and comparing! Every dog will handle it differently, Jersey was VERY cautious about putting weight on it, she was walking pretty similar to Veronica at this point, got a little better, then she got a seroma and stopped putting weight on it at all for quite a while.

Re: Our first foster is HW+, Need advice with our resident d

Can you potty him in a different area than your dogs? That would probably be the best idea although just picking the poop up right away should be enough I would think.

Re: Help! Low (45) platelet count

Hey a diagnosis! That's a good thing. Doing antibiotics? Nero had to do a long course of them soon after we got him for lymes and anaplasmosis.

Re: Hello, again...

I'm glad to see you are still around, kind of wondered what happened to you. Nice to see you stepping up and trying to make things right. I have 2 collar and leash sets from you and they have held up well and still get used.

Re: I don't know what to do -- allergies

Coconut oil seems to help my allergy dog quite a bit, switching to raw took care of most of his issues but took several months. His issues do not sound quite as severe as yours though, mostly a lot of itchiness, stinky BO, hair loss, redness/bumps/hives sometimes and goopy eyes but they were getting...

Re: Knee Surgery - Yes or no?

Are you talking about ccl tears or luxating patellas or what? CCL tears do not show on xray and are usually diagnosed via a drawer test.

Re: ACL repair. To knife or not.

That sucks! I hope she didn't tear the other one. Jersey is 2 years past her first tear now and so far the other knee hasn't gone but I am always expecting it.

It's heavily pushed at the one local vet, no waivers either, the other vet doesn't even recommend hw protection. I stick to monthly pills and none in the winter.
