Listerine is also highly effective at drowning ticks quickly.

I love it.

Yah those are the right kind. If you have a specialized butcher shop you can usually find them for pretty cheap. My dogs love those and will chew the bones for days after being stripped clean.

Re: Eating Bones = Blockage??

what kind of issues? The only thing I can possibly say about raw bones, is that my new dog will vomit a little. It's mostly froth and juice. But he's like a cow (looks like one too), and likes to enjoy his snacks again and again.... He will also do these nasty wet burp vomit things when he's excited...

Re: Worn pads

Mushers secret was recommended to us by some folks at a lure coursing event. You can also get Bag Balm (udder cream) at most pharmacies, and I've seen them in big name pet stores for cheaper actually. Bag Balm is the shizzle, i use it on my dogs and as super heavy duty lotion for myself. http://www....

Re: Dog snapped dew claw in half

rofl my old boy would sometimes rip his nails when he fell up the stairs. yah i said up. Sometimes he was klutzy. Just keep it clean, and trim off anything he can't feel (extra nail that's hanging off). It should heal up on it's own. Otherwise try to keep them short. Some dogs will chew them down on...

Re: Triforce flea/tick/mosquito treatment

Have any of you used garlic for flea & tick preventative? I know a trainer who does, but I have not asked her about dosages or anything. I like the idea better than pumping my dogs full of chemicals. Although I probably have a two year supply of frontline in my closet, sigh. I know there's plent...

Re: housebreaking idea for Ruby

ME, I think Ruby is either insolent as all hell, or just plain not normal. I tend to think from your other posts, that her refusal to go in the yard has something to do with her fear of the yard. I have no suggestions regarding that. IBM's suggestions sound great for typical housebreaking problems, ...

Magoo is whatever you want him to be. At the vet he's always entered as a boxer mix. Boxer, pit bull, any type of mastiff, american bulldog, cane corso maybe... he may be any or all of them.
