Re: Ideas for abdominal surgery issue?

How are you lifting her? How does she react to you holding her chest and rear in your arms, while cradling her weight against you?

Re: Boys!

Also-and I wish this weren't so-Nugget is aroused... maybe 80% of the day. Anything exciting, like my roomate walking into the room, someone eating a sandwich, sitting down, leaves blowing in the wind- anything -and out it comes. If neutering earlier would have changed this, I would have had him don...

Re: Boys!

Gordo was neutered at 6 months, and has never been overly interested in females, and never been much of a humper, marker or roamer. There's no mistaking that he's male, but he's more like your intelligent, attentive guy friend. Nugget was done right after I found him, somewhere between 10 months and...

Would video taping him be useful? If it's happening routinely every few weeks, maybe there is a trigger you don't know about...

Re: Hock tendon injury? Molly's latest medical adventure

Nugget just went in for rads for his hocks yesterday. No swelling, but his hock ligaments are so slack they constantly hyper-extend and cause him pain and make him non-weight bearing after more than a few minutes of running. When Molly's a little sounder, we should take our hock hobblers for a walk.

Re: Goat milk kefir

We had some pups in the clinic recently who were rejected by their mom, and we bottle fed them with goats milk. We didn't use the whole can and it had to be thrown out, so on a whim I gave the leftovers (3/4 can) to Nugget. He LOVED it. Didn't upset his stomach at all, and I've heard that it has goo...

Re: Pros/Cons for spaying 8 yr old?

Meh, we do surgery for tumors etc on dogs 12 and older all the time. Its sad sometimes how the general public thinks pets will die under anesthesia after 10 years of age. Dental procedures require much longer anesthetic than most surgeries, and we perform these on senior dogs every day. Unless she ...

Cross posting for a co-worker who is trying to help this dog get adopted. She looks like a Picasso from getting her jaw broken by a previous owner. This girl needs her own forever home!!! http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/petdetail/21709250-Lucy-American%20Staffordshire%20Terrier-Dog-New%20York-NY ...

Re: Sneaky's latest ordeal

I'm really sorry this is happening. I don't pray, but you and your dogs are in my thoughts. I lost a dog I loved very much to a tumor in her heart, this past Friday, and I am still trying to deal with it somehow. I can't catch a break.I had 5 happy dogs in my house on Thursday night and tonight ther...
