Re: Heat stroke...

I'm going to chime in with Sarah here, as another Oregon resident. I leave Riddle in the car ALL THE TIME. In the summer, no, its too hot, but in the fall, winter, and early spring she practically lives in my car. She is much happier in the car than at home, and she's stayed in my car for work days...

Re: Nobody is helping. (Pika? Or What?)

...We feed her Wellness white fish formula which is considered "ultra-premium" it is right up there with the Natura brand (well, until P&G changes the ingredients. lol ). So I doubt she isn't getting the minerals she needs. :S... Andre started eating poop when we switched him from Blu...

Re: raw feeding - what to expect, what to look for

I think the size of things you feed completely depends on each individual dog, and even what's going on at the time you feed. Andre (100 pound puppy) can swallow a chicken drumstick whole, but can end up choking and having to cough up a piece of cat kibble. He also has decided for some reason he mus...

Re: It's Lymphoma Large Cell Type.

I'm so sorry. You are doing the best thing for you and your Ella. She loves you more than anything in the world and she thanks you for letting her go when she's suffering. I'm devastated on your behalf. Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of my pibble, Tanner, dying from lymphoma. He'll be waiting ...

Re: It's Lymphoma Large Cell Type.

I'm so sorry, Rebecca. I know what you're going through. We went through lymphoma last year with our Tanner. Let me know if you need/want someone to talk to. What helped me the most was the Canine Lymphoma group on facebook. It helped to have other people to talk to who knew EXACTLY what I was going...

Re: Who's Had Hives?

Both my dogs came in with hives last night. I'm 98% certain that they're mosquito bites on my kids because the skeeters were awful last night. They each got the max dose of Benadryl and seem fine now.

(I get huge welts from bug bites, so it's not so shocking to me that my dogs do as well)

Re: running/walking crooked?!

Andre used to run like that. I think part of it was clumsy puppyness, because he still does it when he's really excited (9 months old now). It got significantly better after his first chiropractic adjustment. A good chiropractic exam (just an exam w/out adjustment) should be significantly less expen...

Re: Trying not to panic.

OH! and NO Tanner's swollen nodes weren't like that overnight. They were swollen enough to know there was something wrong, but they weren't that size until months after he was diagnosed. I, like you, tend to think if it's just one node and it's that huge, there's some sort of localized infection or ...

Re: Trying not to panic.

Thanks, guys. :)) I just have a hard time believing this is cancer. Now, I am ignorant to cancer, and how it rears its ugly head, but swelling like that overnight? I just don't see how that is possible. I'm hoping maybe she got bit by something that she is reacting to. Or maybe even stung by someth...
