I share some of your experience. I brought Otis (rescued from life on a chain) into our home with a fear aggressive jack russell. I could hardly sleep at night wondering what he would do to her if I slipped up and they interacted - she's a nip 'n run kinda dog. Supervision, time, training, routine &...

I use EVO or Wellness when I can't make homemade. Lily can't eat a lot of foods because of pancreatitis & ibs - these cause no upset or diarrhea.

Re: Nervous wreck- puppy being spayed

Should i be concerned with the vets office procedure or just chalk it up to "they do this everyday, your just another pet owner" Don't take it personally. As long as you like your vet ... I get rolling eyes, "calm down mom", etc. when I remind the receptionist to please make sur...

Careful with Advantix. Bayer uses permethrin which is HIGHLY toxic to cats and fish. I've known a few people who's cats have died from this stuff before they issued warnings. I use Advantage topical on one pooch (w/heartworm control) and Program for my skin sensitive jrt. Both work great. Wikipidea:...

Re:

What Red suggested was great info. Whatever you do you don't want to cover it up and a puncture wound like that is normally best left unstitched unless it is extremely deep because these have to heal from the inside out. If it's stitched chances are it will close in bacteria leading to infection. x...

I have a Jack Russell Terrier too. You really don't get much more true terrier. She's always been a mature dog, but still has enough spark and energy at nearly 15 that people think she's much younger. I've got a Jack too - 12 yr female. She's been "mature" forever. Serious as a heart atta...

They adverse reactions we exeperienced were loud vocalizing and running into the sliding glass doors, falling, foaming at the mouth. Possibly rare reactions - I don't know.

I think you're terrific! What a great thing to rescue a senior. My experience with seniors is different with each one. One of my pooches was arthritic - we exercised her slowly at her own pace. She got body rubs from the family every night till she fell asleep. My other dog didn't care to be touched...

My female Frances slept about 14-16 hours a day. She loved to snooze. Didn't care much for exercise. My male Otis sleeps about 10 hours a day and he loves to move. Extreme wresting with my son every night, walks in the morning. They're all so different. I have/had jack russells too - one slept all t...
