A veterinarian may do a skin scraping to test for any sort of parasites and/or mange and that's not a bad idea. It also looks like it could use a course of ABX since there are more than just a couple raised red areas. APBT are known for skin allergies as well as having mange that can get outta contr...

I have a little BC with chronic UTIs and my vet took a direct urine sample (don't ever watch this, OW!!) AND recommeded an ultrasound because she said stones and crystals won't always show up in a urine sample alone. JME. cystocentesis= "direct urine sample". As in, put the ultrasound pro...

Thought I'd add a couple more. This is my brother's dog Pork Chop out in California. I think his dad was a staffordshire and his mom was a APBT. He's a sweet dog (and he hates the mailman! :)) ) I got these pics off of my brother's myspace. http://a70.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/42/l_8d56dc7a6...

For the urinary problems I would start with a urine culture and/or ultrasound to rule out UTIs and/or stones or crystals. a urine sample will show this as well, common place is to obtain a sterile sample from you vet via cystocentesis. Crystals and stones will show up on your sample under the u/a, ...

Sometimes age can affect the OVH effects... you didn't mention how old she is, but if she was not matured enough in her bits then it can cause chronic urinary tract infections throughout her life. However, your vet probably was so worried about the pyometra (infection) and getting that out, that the...

Just a couple more pics (I'll save the rest for the Gallery) Just to show what Marley looked like when we first got him from the pound and how he has started to fill out with good diet and excercise. This was the day we brought him home (still a little nervous) http://a285.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/i...

super cute brindle puppy :) !! and the blue is amazing too. :) ps i saw a bag of beneful.. good advertising campaign on that brand, but it's actually all just filler and junk.. a diet with more protein and less filler may be better. Plus, beneful makes their poop all funny colors. :) just a thought!!!

I forgot to add our interests :D Marley does rally, and has had classes in obeidence. Since he is over 2 and we adopted him recently, he was totally unfamiliar with stairs, cars and even tin foil.. he would go potty anywhere and would sure as hell not sit, down or stay for anyone. Now, he's fantasti...
