Kennel Cough, or maybe a cold?

Em let out a cough/hack last night which I thought nothing of, because she has a tendency to throw up (from drinking water too fast and then moving around, etc) and I thought it was just her starting to throw up. But my neighbor was over when she did it and immediately said “that’s kennel cough,...

Thanks Yvette. I will try the mild shampoo bath, if I can't find another solution. I would love to find some way to relieve her itching without bathing her, as bathtime is an ordeal with her! She's terrified of it, poor girl, and I throw my back out every time (I have to hoist her into it, etc etc)....

Post-skunk, scratching like crazy!

So my dog, Epps (2yrs, female), and I got skunked earlier this week (ICK! It was a stealth attack, the little bugger just lunged at us from some bushes as we walked by!). Anyhoo, I immediately ran the dog home and bathed her with the Dawn/Hydrogen-Peroxide/Baking Soda solution (did not use a lot, as...

In heat again? (6wks after last cycle)

Does anyone know if it’s normal for a dog to go into heat more than the average 2 – 4 times a year? I’ve been trying to get my dog spayed but when I took her in on 10/14 she was fully in heat, so we rescheduled. She has her new appointment this week but I noticed her bleeding the last few days and s...

New Bully Owner

I’m Jennie in southern California where I recently adopted my Pit Bull. She is my first dog of my own, though I grew up pet-sitting and volunteering at shelters. In shelters and at dog parks over the years, Pit Bulls have been the most common dog I encounter. That, along with having friends who’ve h...
