I went through this with mine when he was rescued. If there is no vet markup, the treatment in two stages- to be kind to the dog, is 75.00 per treatment (60 lb dog-if memory serves, I'll ask my vet/bully rescue). Almost any dog can live through this. In addition, a massive jolt to a highly advanced ...

You could give her something easy on her stomach while waiting, like boiled chicken and rice, or fish and rice. I have done this in the past to avoid causing the runs with a sudden diet switch. It's easily digestible.

I started Riley on Nutro because of a friends bully rescue that went from barely moving authritic ...to a bouncing boy because of the Glucosamine/Condrointin supplements on top of the amount that was added in the Nutro. My male slammed himself into things with all of the grace of a wrecking ball all...

Just got back in town. Daisy was at a sitters house. She ate like a champ after the first day for the whole ten days. There is something in my house and I am leaning toward her being the canary in the coal mine for mold toxins. I stopped off and had a talk with an old boss that suffered greatly from...

A rescue or humane society can give you a better price, and consider how many of these they do a day. Every single animal that comes through the door. 150.00 plus some donations of much needed supplies (paper towels, surgical gloves, rawhide, toys, etc...they'll have a wish list) will still save you...

Good tips, NILIF is already in effect. I waited for her to eat, specified times 30 min down...then is disappears, no dinner. She held out for three days. I have been catering as to keep her appetite up since she was already under weight and is now under the weather. I was spoiled by the late Riley, ...

Thanks for posting, Daisy's fur is so thin I was worried about the summer months. I've always had dark/black animals, so it hasn't been an issue. This may be stupid, but I just was wondering reading this. Will dogs skin protect itself , or are there any sunscreens for the little pinkies?

That's the problem, since she's had the good stuff (chicken and eggs) she won't touch dry food plain. I starting to consider barf. For the walking schudules, I don't really want to let her eat at her whim. Also, I don't really think that I will have any dominance issues with her, but want to run a t...

O.K., Daisy is a very finicky eater. When I first brought she picked at her food and didn't eat much on top of being a little underweight. (then... :roll: ) I mixed a cooked egg with her food (which she loves) when I was making breakfast so as to get her on my schedule and to have her eliminate in u...

They make the liquid skin that you can paint on if she'll leave it alone. The neosporin idea sounds good, wonder if that will work for the suspiciosly canine size holes in my remote..... :huh?:

On my black and white dog, the white spots are pretty pink-which is most of her head. We call her pinky all of the time. Bully coats are pretty thin so the skin shows through sometimes. On the other hand, she is a rescue and has probably had her diet changed about 100 times as of late (eating whatev...

Simply put, if the coat is white then the hair in the inenr ear is white- the hair that picks up vibrations, transmits them to neurosignal signals that the brain can process. Part of this neurological process is the pigment in the hair. No pigment, no sound. Look in the "Grey colored pit bull" post ...

I am not a vet, so I cannot say what is correct- but I've been told by mine that Ivermectrin can be used/prescribed incorrectly with bad results. This was in response to a rescue that came in with horrible Demodex after a 20 something day treatment of Ivermec when I was picking up Daisy. Just a thou...
