Re: Tivoli

This guy has been in our local shelter for a year... it breaks my heart to see how happy he is and all that he has been through and know that he is still at the shelter. When found he had a muzzle on and a dislocated shoulder, he was burned over 90% of his body. He had been thrown from a truck and ...

Re: Heartworm Meds in the Dead of Winter?

Depends on how long your cold weather lasts. One good reason to keep them on preventative year round used to be that you didn't have to retest if they stayed on the preventative, but I know they're now recommending the retesting be annually anyway. So, if you're having months and months of freezing...

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

You took my opinion and ran with it. Not everyone is going to agree and have the same views in this thread(obviously). Sorry but cropped pitties look "hard" and 'tough" to me(maybe I should have chosen my descriptions more carefully), especially with big chains and spikes around thei...

Our girl was eating her raw too fast today and started to choke. (There is always someone supervising her) My husband was able to help her and she seems all right now. Seems to be some coughing and irritation and I was wondering if anyone knew what might be safe and soothing for her irritated throa...

Re: Bailey keeps biting/scratching the SAME spot, skin allergie?

It can be all sorts of things. My dogs have skin issues here and there but they usually resolve. Is the dog getting lots of exercise? Without it, pits especially can get stressed and have hives. Hey guys, Lately, these last few days, I've been noticing Bailey (our black brindle pitbull) scratching/b...

Hi Everyone, I love all dogs and have a special place in my heart for pitbulls as they need humans who will stick up for them because unfortunately they can't speak and they're most maligned breed of dog on the planet. I am the proud owner of Beauty, one of the world's great dogs, who lives in peace...
