Re: PeePoop out of control

Please don't take this the wrong way, but I'm on my phone and my long reply is a huge pain to type out so it will seem... short. For starters, you are expecting way too much from an 8 week old puppy. Secondly, he has entirely too much freedom. The general rule of thumb for how long a puppy can "...

Re: Fosting a recently weaned mama....

I will suggest having your husband turn into her personal treat machine. Start with him gently tossing her treats at random whenever they are in the same room. He shouldn't "engage" the dog at all yet. Just be a guy that drops lots of yummy things. No talking to her (but quietly talking to...

Re: Hello from Zagreb, Croatia!!

IThis link will give you more info... http://cirrie.buffalo.edu/encyclopedia/en/article/346/ But basically, it's bilateral (both sides) hip displaysia with secondary arthritic changes in the knee joint. That's what I see in the x-rays. Her left hip joint (right side in x-ray) has major structural ch...

Re: Lots of face scratching.....

well the verdict is an ear infection, and possibly something with a tooth. her ears are very red (even I could see that!) and have lots of bacteria going on in them, so we have a flush, drops, and prednazone for the inflammation. they said that if she keeps scratching at her *face* a lot, especiall...

Revolution does I think... Maybe also Advantage multi. I thought they only covered ear mites in cats since the mites are species specific, and that ear mites in dogs are so rare... ? Ear infections will cause the itchy and painful ears too. It's best to see a vet to determine the best course of tre...

Re: Pibbles Pawsh

I really like them! My favorite part is the ring on the handle, it make it so easy to "wear" it when I'm doing off leash work.

Re: Hello!!! I'm about to adopt and have a few questions.

I just wanted to add... Any breed of dog isn't fully mature until (at least) 3 years of age. You can have a good idea of the dog's personality and temperament before that, but it takes a special kind of person with a ton of canine behavior knowledge to make a good assesment before maturity. I have n...

Re: Hello!!! I'm about to adopt and have a few questions.

Many people here have multi dog homes, but most everyone will tell you to seperate the dogs when you are not there to supervise. Even dogs that are best friends will have disagreements from time to time, and if no one is around to say knock it off, you could very well come home to severly injured or...

Re: Piper snapped at someone today, What to do?

I would talk to your vet or the head tech/manager. Would going into that clinic for a "fun" visit (no treatment at all, just to hang out and eat cookies) on occasion be an option for you? It may help her ease the building tension and dislike of the vet's office. Even the sweetest most care...

Re: Going on Paper

If you teach her to go on paper or pads now, she will do it forever. Imagine a 50-60 # dog eliminating on paper in the house. Going outsidein the cold shouldn't be an issue. Your pup will only be out long enough to do her business. At this age, take her out with you on leash so you can make the trip...
