Re: Switching to "Senior" food...

Awh, overweight. I agree with Tiva, stick with a good brand of adult dog food (NB, Wellness, etc.) and 6.5 is not a senior. :) Brisk walking or jogging for 15 minutes twice a day will help out a lot too. :run: How about substituting cooked veggies or dog-safe fruits as treats instead of regular dog...

Switching to "Senior" food...

So Nikita is now 6 1/2 (will be 7 in July of this year). She has no health problems to speak of, but the vet is saying she is fat! She has gained about 6 pounds in the past 6 months.

VERY SKINNY, needs home and TLC - Dallas

This poor guy was found on the side of the highway and obviously hasn't eaten well in a while. He is very sweet and gets along with other dogs. His health condition is unknown, because he has not been to the vet as of yet. He is staying with a friend, but will be taken to the shelter soon if he does...

Kennel Cough w/ Vaccination

My poor baby has the kennel cough. Does anyone have input on why this would happen with her being vaccinated? Also, I have heard I can give her an over-the-counter cough medicine to relieve her symptoms until the antibiotics kick in. I've also heard that you don't need to go to the vet for kennel co...
