Re: anal glands infection

Is this the same dog you posted about here: http://www.pitbullforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=148486&p=1950119#p1950119" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ? Perianal fistulas, from what I understand, are quite different than anal gland infections. http://www.acvs.org/AnimalOwners/H...

Re: Canadian Pet Insurance

I have VetInsurance for my two dogs and one cat. However, I probably wouldn't recommend it. If you are able to pay slightly higher premiums I would look into Trupanion. They provide unlimited coverage after a deductible per illness. I'm not an expert but I do know people very pleased with it and the...

Ok that's what I had heard. I was just interested if it was normal for them to stop bleeding noticeably but still cycle. I've never owned or cared for an intact dog (or bitch) other than her.

Re: Dogs in heat bleeding just a week??

Does anyone have experience with a very old female going into heat? My Dolly (RIP) was still intact when I got her from the shelter when she was about 15-16 and she did appear to still go into heat but really didn't bleed at all (The only reason I noticed was the first time she had a tiny bit of blo...

Re: What is your feeding routine and how much time do you sp

I try really hard not to feed kibble in bowls. Think of all the brain exercise you can use meals for! I usually soak kibble and freeze it in kongs with pb or cream cheese and then whenever I need the dogs to be quiet or when I go out, ta da! Either that or I put non soaked kibble in to food toys, us...

Re: pea sized lump

Melissa informed me tonight that VetInsurance premiums have gone up so much that people are cancelling their policies.

I am PRETTY certain Maggie is responsible for that.

Re: Jaka's trip to the vet

Was he scratching his ear? They almost look like the little scabbies that cats with ear mites get from scratchscratchscratch...just a thought. Hope all goes well!

Becky (my GSD) has broken THREE teeth in the past month (Grrr) and she didn't give me ANY indication that she was uncomfortable...the first one I just noticed because I happened to be looking in her mouth, and the other tw...

Re: Has your dog ever donated blood?

Becky donated a few times when I was working at the specialty hospital. She is a universal as well. Banjo (cat) is an B cat which as far as I know is not *super* common in regular domestic shorthairs, so he donated a few cats, even helped save a cat named Lewis :)

Re: What is your favorite dog food?

I really like Acana, by Champion Pet Foods. They have a ton of formulas, but I believe in the US you can only get the three grain-free formulas: Pacifica (Fish), Grasslands (Lamb) and Wild Prairie (Chicken). I think it's a pretty high quality dry food, much better than Pro Plan. I'm sure other peopl...

Re: Almost lost my kitty-urinary blockage

My kitty Banjo blocked more than a year ago. I noticed within an hour that the was going back and forth to the box and straining, and the vet said that getting him in so quick REALLY helped save his system from more damage. He spent some time eating c/d, but now he eats Orijen dry and canned Almo wi...
