Re: Low Fat Food Choices

I haven't tried Acana Light & Fit but Molly has been eating different formulas of Acana Singles for a while now. Unfortunately, I don't think the protein:fat ratio will work for Capone's issues but the Light & Fit has a better profile. The crude protein is higher in the Light & Fit (35% ...

Re: Low Fat Food Choices

Are his issues related to fat content in the food or to the amount of calories/cup? If it's caloric, then simply feeding less would be the solution but if it's fat content, then you would need to examine the crude protein to fat ratios of each food.

Re: beginner

It's fine for you to not care what your local authorities say but if there is a ban in your area, your dogs may be taken from you and euthanized; the puppies you sell to others in your area could also get caught and be euthanized. How is this any better than a shelter that euthanizes dogs after four...

Re: Hello - Help with Pharaoh Pit Mix

You should also request a new lease agreement to be drawn up by the management of the apartment complex to include this particular dog. When we adopted our dog, we created an addendum to our lease agreement with our landlord and negotiated a fair pet deposit which we paid and both we and our landlor...

Re: any remedy for salt water ingestion?

Hmm, I have no clue how long it takes for the heartworm pill to break down – do you dose her every four weeks or every six weeks? In my previous research on the subject, I seem to remember reading that it's ok if you miss a dose one month but if you go for several months without a dose, a heartworm ...

Re: any remedy for salt water ingestion?

We always bring plenty of fresh water and a bowl for beach outings. As soon as Molly tries to drink the ocean, we get her water out for her. We also walk her afterwards (away from the beach) so that she can throw up/diarrhea if she needs to - this usually only happens on trips where she hasn't been ...

Re: Betsy

She looks like such a sweetheart! Does she like stuffie toys or kongs? Maybe she can be photographed while playing with a cute stuffed toy or working on a kong, that way she might be easier to photograph since she's preoccupied. Barring that, sleeping pictures on a comfy bed next with a stuffie next...

Re: Food suggestions for a dog with food allergies

If you want to try to figure out what food he is allergic to, you should stick to one food and no other treats, raw, supplements, etc. Go back and read MissKiwi's post, she is essentially recommending an elimination diet. I have done an abbreviated form of an elimination diet before with my dog (I d...

Betsy

Are you guys willing to adopt out to first-time pit bull owners? She sounds like she could be a fairly easy dog even for first-time dog owners in general. I realize that's risky but if placement is local or where it's easy to do follow up home checks, that might not be so bad. She sounds like she wo...

TTA surgery for Riley - tips?

Oh, I just remembered the other really important thing: for the places where we have wood and linoleum flooring, we put non-skid rug liners on the floor so that Molly wouldn't slip once she was able to walk around the house. I think it did help her and certainly gave me more peace of mind.

Re: TTA surgery for Riley - tips?

^^ Really good thread! :thumbsup: Molly had different surgeries but I think the initial recovery needs (first 2 weeks until stitches/staples are removed) are pretty similar. We were never able to successfully crate train Molly so for confinement, we borrowed an X-pen rather than try to put her throu...
