if the dog bit your dog, it's just a matter of time before it bites another and even possibly a child. Oh, please don't. I fully agree that the owners have shown they can't properly control the dog, and something needs to change to prevent future dog aggressive attacks. But we are all (hopefully) a...

Baby teeth! Keep one if you're sentimental (and can find one) - dogs and cats usually swallow them.

Hope she's doing better soon!

I just looked over the report from the e-vet, and it says "possible kennel cough leading to pneumonia"

I'll ask our regular vet Friday (or before, if I talk to her) if it's bacterial or viral. I wasn't thinking clearly enough at the e-vet to ask.

I broke free:

Clavamox (one HUGE pill) and Metronidazole (one and a half just big pills)

Clavamox and something else but it's in the other room and I'm under two cats.

Here's what he looked like this morning:

Thanks, ladies. He's doing okay - lower energy, much fewer wags than normal, but otherwise okay. He's still eating and drinking like a champ, so that's a very good sign (if he stops eating, I have to put him in hospital, and no one wants that). I think we did catch it pretty early. I saw the x-rays ...

that's the thing, some dogs dont have allergic reactions to the raw version of what they are allergic too. cooked proteins are altered to the point where they cause allergic reactions whereas raw proteins do not. I think you meant "raw proteins might not"? My cat is allergic to chicken - ...

8) She has a bigger frame than I assumed - Oscar's 55, so I was thinking how 30lb is more than half his weight. Now, he's in great physical condition (except for the pneumonia :frown: ) but I was just guessing her frame was smaller - tough for me to tell from the photo. Yeah, if she's starting that ...

I don't think she needs to lose 20 - 30 lb. That seems like a HUGE amount.

Nevertheless, how much exercise is she getting, and how much is she eating?

Do you give her anything other than the Pedigree? Treats/handouts/table scraps?

Pneumonia

Jeez.

He'll be fine, we caught it very early stages, but still.

Crap.

When I was a kid we had a beagle who ate an entire bag of tollhouse chips. I still remember coming home to an entire living room decorated with about ten "giant hershey's kisses" (where he'd thrown up. It was not pretty. But he lived happily to eat dozens of other horrible things for years...

You actually re-sparked my interest in them, and today when I went to my health store I bought agrimony (which is in the dog's mix anyway) and holly both in individual bottles. I have two cats that don't get along and they piss me off fighting and I yell at them. This is not good for the dog's fear ...

I wish it were normal! Oscars actually even more energetic (I consider it the only negative side effect for me) I'd guess it's a combination of the weather and the change in diet - that is, not that the diet is going to keep their energy low, but that their bodies are processing things differently. ...
