Have any of the vets mentioned meha esophagus? I just know that those dogs typically regurgitate alot b/c the eshopagus doesn't work properly so food doesn't get into the stomach where it should be. From what I understand it can also be an aquired condition from thyroid issues. Just my opinion but i...

I don't like Mitaban either. Ivermectin works well for all types of mange. I'm used to giving it orally but I know many vets will give it subq for anything other then demodex.

Jezzy looked like that on her belly and legs about 2 months ago. She would wake me up in the middle of the night from scratching. When I took her to the vet he said sarcoptic mange which I could have brought home from the shelter or she could have gotten from anyone of the wild animals that wandered...

If she had distemper then that could cause all sorts of things. Neurological signs can appear up to a year after recovery from distemper and can be anything from a slight head tilt to abnormal gait to seizures. There are multiple things that can cause joint popping and stiff gait. Has she been teste...

Maybe try leashing her before she can get to the cabinets. I really do think this is a stress outlet for her so you won't be able to stop the behavior unless you can make changes that will help her feel more secure. I would get a DAP collar for this dog and work on building her confidence in these s...

Shoppers Food Warehouse in Owings Mills usually has it. And sometimes Big Lots in Eldersburg has it. Do you feed Mackeral alot? There was a disussion on the rawfeeding list a while back that it's not a good fish to use. I can't remember why though, something about mercury levels I think. It's a heck...

Coconut oil?

I read an article yesterday about all the health benefits for humans of coconut oil. It reccomended 1 tbsp. a day in your diet and also can use it on hair, as a lotion, etc. I keep thinking I may try adding a spoon to the dogs meals and rub some into Jezzy's itchy spots for a few days and see what h...

ECR = Extracapsular Repair this is the "original" type of cruciate surgery where they go in and repair with either a tissue graft (if there is enough healthy ligament left) or what is basically fishing line. This is the procedure most regular vets do TPLO = tibial plataeu leveling osteotom...

You can also bake liver at home which is cheaper and beef heart but both are very smelly while cooking. Jezzy loves those choco milk drops (by VitaKraft I think) but those are mostly sugar so I only used those to mix in a few with other treats for variety.

My geuss is this is actually just boredom barking. SA is much more then barking while you are gone. Try giving him things to do in his crate like stuffed kongs or anything you feel is safe for him to chew on while you are gone. Mix it up so he's not getting the same thing every time he goes into the...

Sounds like a stress driven OCD to me. Take a good look at what is going on in the home. Were there any changes during the time she started doing this? Have you tried to correct her at all? That can actually make it worse sometimes. We had a lab in the kennel that was so stressed in her run she woul...

Have you treid freeze dried liver? I buy the big containers but smash the peices into little bits in a plastic bag with hammer. My dogs like that and the Red Barn roll which is just a different brand from the Natural Balance roll that has already been mentioned. I've also used freeze dried fish trea...
