I don't think I'd be comfortable using a vet that didn't have an xray machine. Seems a little too 'old school country vet' to me. :dunno:

Yep, Doogie got into and ate an entire giant sized container of algae wafers. The gas really, really bad. :yucky:

Loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea with a history of dietary indiscretion usually equal obstruction. He needs barium and xrays to figure out what going on and then most likely surgery or endoscopy.

Does Doogie lick the cream off?


Of course. But I figure if it's safe for babies......and he's never had a problem other than a bit of mushy poo every once in a while.

I've used diaper rash cream in the past for Doogie. Or Bag Balm. It's weird, sometimes it's worse than others and I can't figure out why. *confused*

Interesting. Thanks for the input! I can see the difficulty of placing a highly DA dog (and also the increased difficulty of fostering). I don't feel that a DA Pit Bull should be discriminated against, but I do see how it would be very easy to pass them over for a more dog friendly specimen. Do you...

Good point. There's a difference between dog reactive (acceptable and workable) and a dog so DA that he's not going to be happy unless he's killing another dog or animal.

Well, it's definitely easier to place a pit bull with low/no DA and they definitely take up less time in a foster spot.

Is it used on dogs? Google can't find anything.


It used to be. I'm not sure if they're using something else now....

For dogs that are allergic to fleas, it only takes one bite to set them off. The bite itches, then they scratch/bite and it and inflame it more. It's a vicious cycle that generally needs a steroid shot and/or antibiotics to help get it under control. It's good that you got rid of the fleas but you m...

I have six dogs in my house as well. A couple of them pit or pit mixes so it's a lot of work to responsibly manage them and make sure everyone gets lots of exercise and love. While I'm not preggers and don't have any children, I do work full time, run a dog rescue and also am a performer at night an...

Sucks, doesn't it? There's nothing you can do to GUARANTEE you won't get a dog back. Was the guy a home owner? Some people won't adopt to renters for this very reason. It's weird. When people decide they want to give a dog back, they almost always want to do it right then, like that very night. I'm ...

A lot of insurance companies also discriminate against malamutes. I wouldn't be so eager to support BSL. It could very well be your breed next.

I was attacked by an off leash doberman. I don't blame the dog or breed, I blame the irresponsible person who didn't contain or control their dog.
