Re: anal glands infection

Wow, I feel so sad for your pup (and you) :(( I can't say I completely understand, but I can relate to the heartache and frustration of having a chronically unwell pet. She's lucky to have you. I really, really hope you find some solutions for her. Also, if antibiotics make her better, and she's oth...

Re: Are grain-free diets REALLY grain free?

Allegedly Natural Balance has separate factories for each formula.

Re: Feeding Raw

OMG, why did I open this thread right to the last page?

I know the rabbit was dead already and everything, but I can help but think "poor Bunny Foofoo."

Re: Need help with Blu's behavior toward select strangers

Thank you for your advice. We are seeing Drayton Michaels at Urban Dawgz on Saturday. I am filling out the paperwork now. I asked Drayton about bringing a clicker and he recommends holding off until I get my verbal reward timing correct as the clicker may get in the away at first. I understand that ...

Re: Pyoderma, antibiotics, only itching at night??

It sounds like she has underlying allergies. It is common for allergic pets to itch more at night and early in the morning, according to Blu's derm. It could be something she's reacting to where she's sleeping as well....what is she sleeping on? Did your vet recommend any benadryl, antihistamines or...

Re: Need help with Blu's behavior toward select strangers

I have contacted the Pit Bull Guru as suggested.

Anything I can do in the mean time...or any guesses as to where this behavior stems from?

We're in New Jersey. Our dog trainer (who we haven't worked with in quite some time) is Carrie from Alpha Dog Training. I am waiting to hear back from her.

Need help with Blu's behavior toward select strangers

In the past six or so months, Blu has been exhibiting odd/uncharacteristic behavior toward some strangers. I'm almost too upset about it to write about it, but I need help :oops: . The behavior is this: Acting calm (from what I can see), then staring at the stranger for a few seconds and then jumpin...

Re: Sigh...another skin infection

Try to get her as comfortable as possible until you see the specialist. Did the specialist come recommended from someone you trust? At this point, I'm sure she needs antibiotics to get over this. Even a dog whose immune system was not compromised would need drugs to kick this kind of infection. The ...

Re: Sigh...another skin infection

Good luck at the derm. That poor girl. I took Blu for the first time in January to the specialist when he was in the middle of an infection he just couldn't kick. She scraped the skin to see what the bacteria was....have you ever done that with Cherry? Turns out his infection was not sensitive to th...

I'm starting to get cold feet about this doctor. We're taking Blu for a second opinion on Wednesday.

Re: Blu ate a bite of grass that had the pesticide tag on it

Well, I did knock on the poor lady's door. And they treated it yesterday morning, but hadn't watered it yet. So I comforted myself with the fact that it hadn't soaked in yet. :oops: I called the e-vet back and they still said just watch him. So, I am and so far everything's okay. I did wipe him down...

Re: Blu ate a bite of grass that had the pesticide tag on it

I called the e-vet and they said to just watch him and bring him at the first sign of odd behavior. Also, they said to knock on the door of the people that own the house and ask them how long ago it was treated. Ugh. I'm not sure if I'm going to go that far.
