Re: Dirty Petco?

The reptiles and fish at ours are always healthy, it's the dog food, treats, and floors that usually need attention. One guy who works in the fish/reptile section loves aquatic critters and scaled beings, I'm not sure they'd be in such good shape if he didn't work there. The rodent section isn't as ...

Sit means Sit?

I've got a flier on my leg from this company... Wow. I've also got one hell of a story to tell you guys when I'm not fighting the clock to get to bed lol Have any of you guys dealt with these people before? I met someone today at a dog event who may well have been one of the most off-putting trainer...

Re: Fed up. #$%^%#^$ fleas.

So far the neem oil is doing wonders for Moira's scabby sores and irritated spots. It smells terrible, and makes the dogs want to lick each other like crazy roflmao but she stopped scratching at herself, and her skin is looking much less red and inflamed. Can't tell yet if it is having an effect on...

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: OUCH..

Here's how the dog sees the course. Found this after watching the second vid and had to share, the weave poles from the dog's angle are insane!

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...

Dirty Petco?

Have any of you ever been into a PetCo and found buggy products or the place was just dirty? The one here is gross. You can pick up the bones, the meaty kind in the cellophane, and other natural treats that come wrapped, if you shake them the wrapper will fill up with bugs that have gotten down betw...

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...
