The Fat... It Dangles!

Just a quick update on Chino. She's still far from ideal, but she's progressing nicely :nana: She's up to eight blocks on average 2x a day. There for a long while she would slow down 3/4 of the way around a three block walk and waddle like a lame turtle the rest of the way home. She's now moving at ...

Re: Chino's obesity. (pictures this time)

how far is she undershot. I am not sure if you are forgetting I have ABDs, and yes they are all undershot, but have no issues eating small, large, medium things, they are a bit more messy when eating, but that's it, no problems picking up things. She's undershot by somewhere between 1/4 and half an...

Re: Chino's obesity. (pictures this time)

I'm with you guys on the anti dog park thing, we usually avoid them like the plague, but we have been going with Chino late in the evening, when there's nobody there and meeting up with several other owners and their dogs, all of whom are tubby and all of whom enjoy each other's company. Chino's fav...

Re: *NEW vaccine protocol*

We're currently stuck on yearlies with Chino, Mambo, and Loki. They donate blood every two months and are required to have their vacs every year to continue to donate. I'm hoping they will change the policy at some point in the near future but I'm not holding my breath. Stormy will receive her rabie...

Re: Chino's obesity. (pictures this time)

Right now she's on Iams weight control. She seems to really like it and the large breed has really big kibbles so it takes her longer to eat it than the regular kibble because of the funny shape of her mouth. In spite of the diet dog food, another suggestion by the vet mind you, and reduced portions...

Chino's obesity. (pictures this time)

I'm sure some of you remember the thread I posted a while back about Chino exploding. Well I'm happy to report that she's down to 61.8 pounds. Still way too butterball but coming along. She's lost just under 7 pounds which is amazing considering how light we're having to take the exercise so she doe...

Re: Shedding! </3

Those blades work wonders on a dog with a double coat.. like labs, huskys and GSDs.. not so much on a a short smooth single coat.. like pit bulls, dobes and dachshunds. Rubber curry combs work best on them... from my experience as a dog groomer anyway. I will never own a dog with a double coat. Tha...

Re: Science Diet's new product

What gets me is the piss poor quality of their foods. It boggles my mind that these big companies market their products as being so incredibly awesome but in reality they're really no better than your bargain basement Green bag Purina dog chow.

Re: Science Diet's new product

No worries. It's disgusting what they put in dog foods. Cat food is almost worse IMO, all their dry food with tons of veggies. Cats don't NEED veggies to be healthy. They need a moist diet of meat meat meat.

Re: Steve's feet.

We used Lanolin on Chino's feet, when she was younger I swore she could tear her paw pads in thick grass. It seemed to do the trick for her. I can't remember the brand name but it comes in a purple and white tube, if you know anyone who recently had a baby at a hospital you might ask them if they've...

Re: Shedding! </3

Mambo sheds like a thousand big hairy dogs. I brushed him out today, got a regular grocery bag full of his hair, and this evening he already had tufts of shed sticking off of his butt at odd angles. Some of them just shed a ton. I use the Furminator on the girls about once a week and that's all they...

Re: My Am Bulldog Exploded!! Help!

Chino's weight loss is just crawling along. We've switched her diet around, white meat Chicken is all she's getting on raw days as per the vet's suggestion, changed the kibble portion to a diet dog food, cookies have been replaced with extra kibbles. We're going to the dog park at least three times ...

Re: What Supplements do you use?

We do fish oil for everybody. Chino's going to be starting some joint supplements when I get paid next week to help with her wrist issues she's been having due to being a little lard dog.

Re: Has anyone tried this brand of dog food?

xD Maybe I'll get some to help me leash train Koi? On another note I will not be buying that food at all. 14 dollars for a 9 pound bag? really? Yeah thats out of my budget and I was looking on dog food feedback sites and its not very good quality either. So I'm going to look into the other foods li...
