Re: The importance of blood work

So the final verdict on Vi's blood work after 3 of our Drs discussed it and given Vi's history of stealing food is mild/beginning pancreatitis. Since her tooth is no longer causing her pain we are holding off on the extraction and getting her liver values back to normal first. She gets another blood...

Re: California Natural vs. Fromm

All my girls and cats have been on Fromm for about a year now, and I have to say I am very pleased with their food quality and consistency. My dogs and cats have great coats too. The product has been exactly as I expect it to be every single time. They are also one of the few companies that will tel...

The importance of blood work

As mentioned in another thread Vi is going in Tuesday to have a broken tooth removed. I always do a blood panel before any procedure involving anesthesia no matter the dogs age or how long ago the last panel was done. Vi's last blood panel was done about 7 months ago before her spay, and she had ano...

Vi broke a tooth :(

So Vi not only broke her canine tooth in half, she also managed to break the inside half off too. My poor baby :( She is going in to have it extracted on Tuesday. The Drs at work wanted her on antibotics for a few days before doing a major extraction, so she is getting some pain meds and eating cann...

Re: Dog biting feet. HELP!!!!!

There is a dog I see walking by our training field all the time that wears booties all year round. We figured it wasn't for fashion because its all he "wears". Our curiosity got the better of us so we asked the owner about it, and she said its the only thing that protects his feet with his...

This.

The circling can be a symptom as well as a head tilt.

Alley Cat Allies is a national organization that helps areas find solutions to their feral cat problem. Check them out. Maybe with their help you could get your city/county to help. http://www.alleycat.org For example: the spay/neuter clinic I work at has a "deal" with Oakland County. As l...

Re: Good diet for an elderly dog?

If your dog is doing fine, leave things be. With a senior dog the most (IMO) important thing is semi-annual blood work.

Maybe try some of the places listed on the above site. If they are too far, they should be able to refer to someone closer.

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

Yes, I can say it doesn't hurt to have it done if it is done properly. Those dogs that woke up screaming obviously didn't get the right amount of meds and get it done PROPERLY. Actually the dogs were given 3 types of pain meds before the procedure was even started so pain management was effective u...

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

I'm convinced it doesn't hurt because I have EXPERIENCE, not an Internet article. :lol: I have experience, professional, surgical experience. I worked for a vet that did ear crops for years, and the only surgery that required the dog to be sedated after it woke up from the procedure was an ear crop...

Re: Fleas!

A bath in plain old Dawn dish soap. Leave lather to sit on the coat for about 5 minutes, rinse thoroughly. This will kill any live fleas on the pet at that time. It's what we do for kittens/puppies too young for conventional flea treatment. Yes i heard about this and did it with my german shepard d...
