Re: Raw chicken = hives??

My gut reaction is that it's environmental if both are suddenly affected, but you can't rule out the food altogether.

In any case, you can give benadryl to stop the hives. They might become itchy and then that could be a vicious cycle, so best to nip it in the bud. Good luck!

Re: My shelter is closing... (Long!)

Ugh, what an awful situation! There are some good ideas here already. One thing you could do immediately is start a chipin that could be passed around different social media. That might be able to buy you some time while other options are explored. It's hard because you could do a dozen fundraisers ...

Re: Feeding Raw

I forgot to add that I started raw feeding in November because of Khan's allergies. I have seen such an improvement even with environmental allergies that would normally have flared up in the spring and be going full force now. ^ I started feeding raw because of Paco's allergies and found such an e...

Re: Need Feedback your experience as a foster

Maybe it's the optimist in me but I'm wondering if your mom saw what a great job you did then maybe she would be more open to the idea in the future. Is there a way you could make her a deal (ie. do the dishes the whole time the foster is around, get good grades, volunteer at the shelter taking resp...

Re: Treat em' right rescue in houston

DISCLAIMER: I know nothing of the org in the OP . I am not making this statement about that org. There are many rescues/shelters that look good on the surface, but if you look deeper you will realize they are not what they seem. Sometimes it takes months of directly working within the org to see th...

Re: Healing from a ccl injury - long and rambling

Paco had knee issues. First go-round we did very strict conservative management (like two weeks of hardcore tie-down rest, two months of on-leash activity only) and were able to put of surgery for two years. The second go-round we were not so lucky, and opted to do bilateral TPLO. I cataloged the w...

Re: Damage to Foster Homes

I am bad at interpreting legal jargon but the BR foster contract seems to put all financial responsibility on the foster home for any damage incurred by said foster dog. Too bad it isn't some sort of yard/fence situation where you could offer labor, materials, and good faith to fix the situation. Fu...

What did this hypothetical dog hypothetically do that cost $1000? That is, if it were to happen ;)
