Re: RAW food

I got a bunch of free stuff off Craigslist and then about 300 pounds of ground beef for 20 cents a pound from someone who butchered their own cow. Their kids refused to eat the ground beef because it was too fatty, so it ended up being freezer burned. They were going to just give it to us, but we en...

Re: Picking a vet?

You can look on AAHA.org. If the vet clinic is listed there, it means they have been AAHA accredited. (meaning they've had to pass 900 standards on everything from patient care to medical records keeping to client education to surgical techniques.) This doesn't mean that you'll "click" wi...

Re: RAW food

Wow its seems your dogs eat quite a bit of food. This might sound dumb and cheap but, I thought the raw diet on top of being better for my dog is also supposed to be cheaper. If my dog starts eating whole racks of ribs and whole chickens, we are going to be homeless lol Thats costly! Im not big dad...

Re: RAW food

Andre vomits bile a couple times a month in the morning. I haven't been able to pinpoint what's causing it yet. Sometimes it's after a supper of all ground beef, sometimes it's after a supper of pork ribs, or chicken. *shrug* Our vet told us to give him pepcid every night at bedtime to help control...

Re: Gee what a surprise. It's Spud again :(

Sorry for the DP. I just thought of something else. Call the University of Minnesota and see if they have any studies/options that may be beneficial to your situation. The worst they can do is say "no". When Tanner was diagnosed with lymphoma, we managed to get him into a couple different ...

Re: What's going on with Aedin's ears?! Sensitive? Infection

All of the dogs I've ever had LOVE having their ears rubbed, especially when they have ear infections. I assume they enjoy it because the rubbing is like scratching to them. If my dogs were yelping when I touched their ears, and refusing to let the vet look in them, they'd be getting some sort of se...

Re: Advice? Or is this normal?

Well, last night Amber decided it was wrestle-mania night. She and Andre managed to rearrange the furniture by body-slamming one another into the couch and loveseat. After they pulled the cushions off the couch, Amber wriggled under them and nipped at Andre as he circled her mountain of cushions. I ...

Re: Advice? Or is this normal?

We're just going to stick to the aspirin for the two week period and then we meet and talk to the vet again to discuss the results and figure out what we're going to do long-term. Once we're done with the 2 weeks, I'll probably be adding glucosomine supplements of some sort, so thank you for the rec...

Re: Advice? Or is this normal?

Oh. I know she's not super-active. Or at least she never has been in her time with us. Her tail is wagging more today. And it's wagging harder and faster, so I think we might be on to something. We'll see.

Re: Advice? Or is this normal?

Thanks for the well-wishes. She's not curled into such a tight ball on the couch today but still isn't what I'd call 'overly active', it is a bit of an improvement though.

Jacki, I doubt that Amber is depressed due to lack of collars. :-P roflmao

Re: Advice? Or is this normal?

Well, Amber was a bit perkier than normal yesterday evening. She even stretched out on the couch instead of curling in a tiny ball in the corner of the couch. And, *gulp* she laid on the floor for a few hours like a DOG!! :wow This morning she was out of bed by 8:30. She didn't do anything other tha...
