Re: Parvo recovery-what can i expect?

I always set up a litter pan at the back door and front door that has a half inch of bleach solution in it, so that people walking in and out can walk their shoes through it. Seems over the top, but I fear spreading parvo out into the world just as much as I don't want to bring it into the house fro...

Re: New pit bull puppy owner

She's beautiful! To try and answer your question about when they learn who their owner is... My new dogs catch on within a few days where the food comes from, but some dogs and puppies are so friendly that it seems like they will go home with whoever is willing to pet them or give them a treat. My f...

Re: My Am Bulldog Exploded!! Help!

I walk my older chunkier dog on the beach. The sand makes a regular walk more taxing (softer sand is best), without the joint impact that would happen on cement/packed dirt.

Re: considering...

Sounds like this dog was lucky to find a caring family to help her out. I'm sure you'll get many responses to your post, but I can give you a little advice based on my experience with the breed. Regarding public perception... Owning a Pit Bull carries a level of responsibility that, due to negative ...

Re: What do you do when your dog feels sick?

Oatmeal has always worked well for dogs I've had that were on heavy meds that made their stomach weak. I make a pot of plain oatmeal in the morning (I also like it for breakfast), and then just scoop some out a few times a day (it stays good for a few days). The 1-minute kind is fine to use (I like ...

Demodectic stray pup

Hi, I picked up a stray puppy in Turlock (CA) this past weekend and thought I would post in case anyone can help out. A little background on his story: We found "Nugget" (because he loves them, and because he looks like a plucked chicken), on a country road rooting through some trash. He i...

Primal B.A.R.F food...

Does anyone here feed Primal? I am switching my adult dog onto the B.A.R.F diet, and this is the prepared raw food available at my local pet store. I like that it comes ready to feed (just defrost), but don't love the price (my dog weighs 50 pounds and will cost quite a bit to feed weekly). Does any...

Hello from South Africa!

My boyfriend and I just adopted a pit bull/staffie cross, and as there isn't much breed awareness out here, we thought that joining a good forum would give us the opportunity to ask questions as well as share advice and experiences. I will be posting under the name AfrikaPB, and Matt will post as ne...
