Had the vet look at Isabeau's growth...

It's technically on her hip, an inch or two from the base of her tail. I just took this pic with my phone a couple minutes ago, it's the best I could get: http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i294/RZ2000SS/593ba87a21f74e61a09e9de867ee3009.jpg It's been there for a few months. Recently, Isabeau has star...

Re: pea sized lump

I hope it is nothing. Vet appointment is in a few hours. I'm going to try not to be the crazy paranoid dog lady when I go in there. lol

Re: pea sized lump

Reading about Mast Cell Tumors on PBF has prompted me to get a lump on Isabeau checked out ASAP. She's had it for a few months, it's a couple inches away from the base of her tail. Lately, I've noticed she's licking and chewing the areas around it. I didn't think it was a big deal, until reading oth...

Possible shoulder injury?

I haven't posted in a loooong time, but thought I'd run this by everyone. Isabeau, my APBT, is almost 3 years old. She is what I call, the 'anti-pit bull'...lazy, sleepy, inactive. For her, a leisurely stroll around the block is like running a marathon (she doesn't act like she's straining to breath...

That definitely doesn't qualify as legit as anyone can call themselves a rescue and start asking to take dogs. I'd ask them for a vet reference, find out more about their placement policies. See if they have an adoption application, adoption contract and then do a home visit. THat's not a guarantee...

Anyone familiar with this TN rescue?

I'm looking for any information on Countryside Bully Rescues in Brentwood, TN. A shelter i've worked with is looking for rescues that might be able to pull bully breeds, but they are very picky about where bully breeds go (rightfully so!). I can't find anything out about Countryside by googling, exc...

Whatever you do, do NOT take the the elizabethan collar off at night, or at any other time that you are leaving him unsupervised. Most dogs when given the opportunity to do so, will lick their incision. I've seen way too many dogs come back into the vet hospital because their owners took the collars...

Cut that post too short...

Mine likes everything, so I guess I never really worry about that. But I know some dogs are pickier eaters than others. If you start playing around with too many different samples though, you may find your dog's stomach getting a bit upset.

Most of these companies also offer sample packs. Usually one pack is about half a feeding so I'd ask for 2 at least to see if yours likes it and then likes it again tomorrow :) This way you still feed some of what they are already eating and you don't end up with the runs. While that would seem lik...

I don't randomly walk up to strangers and tell them the food they're buying is crap. lol I think that would be rude. However, I have started conversation with people at the pet store who look like they're having a hard time deciding which food to purchase. If they don't seem interested in my advice,...

I've personally used TOTW Pacific Stream (This is the salmon & sweet potato formula for sensitive stomachs). My dog did very well on it, but we did later switch to the High Prairie formula, but only because the pet store was out of Pacific Stream. She's done surprisingly well on the High Prairie...

I would never leave 2 dogs alone unsupervised, ever. If you're gone for 12 hours...that gives them a lot of time to have an 'off' moment occur. Heck, an 'off' moment can occur in the blink of an eye. If I were you, When I leave I would keep them separated either in crates or in separate rooms, and h...

I'm sorry to have brought such mass confusion to everyone. As I said before, I was looking for a dog that would be a medium-large size dog. I thought in getting this supposed boxer/pit bull mix, that was what I was getting. Once I met the guy in a parking lot....with 6 of them crammed into a tiny ca...

ok, i just dont get it. you wanted a smaller dog, around 40 lbs for your demo training.. what would be wrong with a smaller weight if the pup maxed out under 40 lbs? you say you cant have a 3rd dog, if so, why get this one ? do you have 2 already? or 1? my rufus at 8 weeks old was 9 lbs.. he was th...
