Don't Know Where Else to Turn - Dallas, TX

This dog was 2 days away from being euthanized at the shelter. I cannot keep him due to my pittie's "selectiveness" with her friends. He is very sweet and needs a good home. If ANYONE can point me in the right direction, please do. Here are some facts about "Kenny" 5-6 Yrs Old - ...

Help in Dallas

I was just forwarded an e-mail about a very sick Pit Bull, infested with fleas, who just gave birth to 5 puppies. They all need homes because this girl apparently can't take care of them?

Who can I contact in Dallas to help me with this?


Thanks!!

Something in her toe?

I noticed Nikita limping, so I checked out her paw and saw the weirdest thing. In between 2 of her toes there is what looks like a little piece of something embedded in her pad. It is very red and swollen and she limps all the time. When I try to touch or look at it, she freaks out! I plan to take h...

Some people are against bark collars, but I think they are ok in some cases. I have this one for Nikita: http://www.petsmart.com/global/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524441775951&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302032912&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=2534374302023689&bmUID=113441956248...

I have used both for over 20 years and found that some of my more determined dogs can escape from or tear apart a wire crate. YES!! Nikita has escaped from her wire crate several times!! And in about 5 minutes time. She scrapes up her nose pretty badly every time too. So I had to switch to the airl...

Is there a difference between me and doggie daycare?

Nikita is a bit dog agressive somtimes (walks, etc.) despite the huge amount of socilaztion she got when she was younger...but...that put aside, I take her to doggie daycare (Petsmart) and the people there love her sooo much and always tell me that she gets along great with the other dogs. Is this m...

All kinds of money? Like what? All they would need to do is take an ear swab and prescribe meds. I've never seen ear drops that cost more that $15. Your old antibiotics probably won't help for a number of reasons (different abx target different parts of the body, could be a yeast infection not bact...

My girlfriend just had an ear infection and I put olive oil in the microwave for 30 seconds and put 3 drops in. It works pretty well. I'm sure it is ok to use on dogs but I would google it. Yes, DEFINITELY Google it. 30 seconds in a high-powered microwave would make the oil HOT, I would be so afrai...

I think my vet is full of BS...

My vet claims my dog has an ear infection. She doesn't itch, scratch, or shake her ears. She does have some wax build up in there. Anyway, he wants to charge me all sorts of money. Is there any type of home remedy for this? FYI, I already have some anti-biotics from when she used to have allergies.....

I say invest $8-10 and take the dog to a professional. Nikita won't let me touch her nails, but does OK when 3 people at the vet's office hold her down. Dogs feet are very private areas to them. It is not uncommon for a dog not to want his/her feet touched. But as I said, it is worth the xtra money ...

Quick questios on BSL in TX

Am I correct when I say there are laws against any new BSL in the entire state of Texas? Call me an idiot or lazy, but I just don't want to look it up right now.

Thanks everyone!! And Nikita thanks you!

I used to have a Dacshund (i know...big and scary) when I was about 10 years old that was protective of me. One night when I was in bed (the dog always slept with me) my grandmother, who was visiting at the time, came in my room to check on me in the middle of the night and my dog ran at her and bit...
