Damien has heartworms. :(

Found out today that Damien has heartworms, and the vets have no medicine for him. The doc gave him a steroid shot, and some antibiotics to help with his breathing, but basically said that there's nothing they can do without Immiticide, which they ran out of 6 weeks ago, and is not being produced ri...

Re: anyones boys umm... jewels not dropped?

That's what I was afraid of. I'll make some calls tomorrow and see what I can find. Looks like I'll be looking for another vet as well. It's a shame too, as this is the only vet in my area, but I've noticed this since birth, and the vet never said a word, other than he was healthy.

Re: anyones boys umm... jewels not dropped?

Thanks. Didn't intend on breeding him, so the neutering isn't a big deal, but what are the issues you speak of?

anyones boys umm... jewels not dropped?

Damien is about 2 1/2 years old now, and his doggy jewels have never dropped. If he is lays on his back while playing, you can see them a little bit, but there is literally no sack. Kane on the other hand had huge balls.lol It was hard not to notice them no matter what he was doing. Just wondering i...

Tomorrow will be 1 week. Soon as I find another job (which is very hard in my state) I may go all raw.

They're on Diamon Naturals Chicken and Rice Formula.

They really had lost weight. Their spines started showing, ribs were very noticeable, and you could see their hip joints. Good thing is that they're doing better now. They each have a good 5-6 lbs to put back on, but they're looking much better.

I believe Damiens parents are in the 60lb range, maybe 65. Iv'e never seen Kanes parents as I adopted him from an abusive situation. Damien at 6 months weighed 55lbs, and kane was 50lbs at 5 months. Both lean and fit. We had some issues about a month or so ago, where they both lost weight. It has be...

Oops, no edit button. What I meant was that they are getting 2 cups of kibble in the evening, sometimes 3cups . Depending on activity level.

Can you look at my dogs diet and tell me if it's ok?

I feed Diamond Naturals Chicken and Rice Formula. When I was feeding them kibble only, they would need 3-4 cups a day to keep at a consistant weight, and not lose lbs. They're healthy and all, but it doesn't take much for them to shed lbs. I have started them on raw within the last week. They each g...

In the past 2 months or so I have been letting them stay in there cage outside to get fresh air. That's when it all star...

I'm in contact with a place local to me that will neuter for $50.00, and they plant a microchip for $10.00. Damien will be the 1st one to get it done, as he is the hyper one. He is also the only one that does any mounting, not all the time, but enough. I got lucky with the marking, neither of them h...

Been a member for awhile, 1st post. Pics of my boys.

As the title states, I've been a member here for a little while now, just reading, and gathering info/knowledge. Figured it was time to take the leap into posting. I'm a 27yr. old male from Michigan, and I am the proud owner of 2 pitties, Damien and Kane. Damien is 14 months, and Kane is 13 months. ...
