I just got my shipment in. Came in nice and prompt, bags intact, and cans undented.

I too, noticed it takes Nadiya a couple weeks of getting used to it.

That's so sad, I'm sorry. I've never had to deal with it personally. Any pets we see at the clinic that have terminal cancer are simply made comfortable and the last part of their lives are made enjoyable. Some people may opt to do chemo, but its really a personal choice decided on by the owner. Bon...

My dog has spay incontinence and she was leaving LAKES on the bed, couch, floor, you name it. You could smell it, too. We put her on hormone therapy, and her vulva swelled up really big. I took her off it for a year and she did fine. She started leaking Lake Superior and was put on Proin, a medicine...

Now I'm really scared. I'm hearing mixed reviews on it.

I'm PRAYING that I don't have any problems!! 8(

She's never had any problem eating it before, but I got a different formula this time around.

Wow... I just ordered a big bag of the stuff, plus some canned.
Nadiya has a pretty hardy stomach, and she's been on the Southwest Chicken and herbs before. My bag hasn't shipped yet, but I guess we'll see how things go this time around. Ya'll have me worried sick now! :p

It looks pretty scary, but I'm sure its not uncomfortable. That jail crate looks more uncomfortable bare-bottom than the one I quoted. You can always toss some bedding in there of course. Problem solved.

From my understanding the FLP will kill the fleas, eggs, and larvae <i>on the dog</i>. If there are any eggs, fleas, or larvae in the house they will seem to reappear. The quickest way to eliminate them in the home is to treat the house itself. A lot of people complain that the product isn't working...

That's about all I could come with too. All of those are too far away from where I live. :( I would LOVE to go to that doggie-spa but its in Ohio! :po:

I'm going to call the place in Kansas City to see what their rates for canine massages are. Better yet, if they could show me how to give one.

Also, I forgot to mention that the itchy rash would probably be flea allergy dermatitis. It is an allergic reaction to the saliva from flea bites. The only way to prevent this is to make sure to every last one of those fleas is gone off your dog! Here is the frontline website and it should tell you ...

Get a good topical flea medication from the vet. I like to use frontline plus. The initial cost may be expensive, but you'll far surpass that cost by buying that flea shampoo that does next to nothing. Frontline plus will kill all the adult fleas and protect against new invaders for a month. It also...

I looked at that crate, but the charge for shipping quoted was astronomical. I ended up ordering an aluminum crate from Ray Allen Professional K-9 Equipment that I have been very happy with. http://www.rayallen.com/images/d-RAK500.jpg That looks like something they would put Hannibal Lector in! lol

She seems pretty bad. She's already 6 years old and she has quite a grind in her hips, especially her right. Both hips are quite inflamed. If she was diagnosed younger, then I could've helped slow he degeneration more. She just never showed any of the signs before. She swivels her hips and bunny hop...

bump? :oops:

I went ahead and got the Black Forest formula. She's running out of food and I needed some left over so I can make the switch gradual.

Managing Hip Dysplasia and diet (long)

My 5 year old siberian husky Nadiya has hip dysplasia. It seems to be pretty mild at this point, she has some inflammation and its being treated with supplements and physical therapy. She does have a grind in her legs. While she's not extremely overweight, she needs to lose a few pounds. She's right...
