Sometimes they will eat it when they are eating to fast.. its like a second shot at nutrition.. they could hand feed them which will pace the pups eating and slow it down some.. Pineapple is also awesome to give them after they eat their regular meal.. Puppies eat to fast its normal and because they...

One thing I did with a dog I had that was very aggressively guarding was take total control of the feeding.. food was given in handfuls a little at a time until gone and we continued this for sometime... then when that made progress I sat the bowl down on the floor next to me with my hand on the bow...

Jazmine and Sierra both take benedryl on a regular basis.. but I only give them 1 25mg each which is far below a normal dosage for them.. I totally screwed up today though.. I always give it at bed time so they sleep off the worst of it.. well I realized that I forgot to give it to them yesterday so...

We took her and it's basically a waiting game now. She definitely has an upper respiratory infection. It could be bordatello, for which she was given antibiotics. But... it could be distemper. We just have to wait maybe 3 weeks to see if she develops any more symptoms. So far she hasn't had a fever...

Get her into the vet asap.. when we took our new pup Tucker in the vet Monday she said there's a huge outbreak in our area and nationwide with Parvo.. what you described is not a symptom but could be something else...

Cute pup ....
