Re: 15-20 ft Leads

WOW! Thanks for your help, I did buy the one from walmart awhile back but it was so thin and dinky I didn't think I would continue to use it for Sadie, but maybe for Cesar my chi.

I will have to take a look at Ella's leads! Thanks so much!!

OMG!!! Really??? Nasty! :eek: quote]

Re: Broken Nail

My vet doesn't sedate for this at all but I know how to hold a dog such that the vet won't get bitten. He says "ready" I say "ready"...chop, squeal & squirm, tape it up...done. Doesn't your vet own a muzzle, though? Tape? Really? It couldn't have been "ready...chop, squ...

15-20 ft Leads

I was told by someone you can buy a horse lead(?) and cut a portion off and it becomes a dog lead. I ask because I don't have a store to buy one from locally other than a Cal Ranch. I wanted a durable 15-20 ft lead. Walmart does carry the metal tie versions but I don't know If I want to be carrying ...

Re: Hook Worms

talking hook worms, not heartworms. hooks are easily removed with the right meds, im just tired of buying it from the vet. although the stuff i get from the vet is for cats and dogs, so i may stick with it. Interceptor eliminates the tissue stage of heartworm larvae and the adult stage of hookworm,...

Re: Hook Worms

I am not sure about treatments after the fact, but have you tried a preventive? I know it can get expensive with so many animals though. We use interceptor, I am not sure if that's the best but it was what our vet started us on along time ago.

Re: Broken Nail

Okay, so I took her in and I am shocked! The vet just ripped the nail off without any pain meds and she freaked and almost fell off the table!!!! He then kept telling the vet tech something about super glue(?) ... Sadie would scream and I would talk to her, trying to keep her on the table (which is ...

WOW!!! That's good everything worked out perfectly, except you getting knocked down of course. I guess my question is, do you reward them after they have completed the recall or punish them for booking it? I am assuming you would reward them, since they have probably already forgot that they were ba...
