You'll just need to ask your retailer if they will sell you the "Kennel Pack." The bags are labeled "Not For Resale" so I don't think they are supposed to sell individual bags to customers. You may have better luck if you ask to buy multiple bags and split them up between friends...

Nature's Variety Budget Tip

Don't know if this has been posted before but... I recently found out that Nature's Variety aka Prairie makes a 50# "Kennel Pack" bag of dog food in both the Chicken and Beef varieties. I was able to get them from my local feed store on a special order. They charged me $53 for the 50# bag!...

Sarah, There have been many dogs on the PBF including my main squeeze that have had MCT's. Let's see what the pathology report says next week. For many MCT's surgical removal can be curative. Anwar had one removed from his flank in 2005. It came back Grade II but the pathologist said that it had pen...

Well, I checked them again this morning and they're the same size as yesterday. My vet closes at noon on Thursdays(not sure why...) so it's too late to call in. :\ However, I'll call tomorrow and see what she says. I have a feeling that if Bean needs to be put under for surgery(even a minor one lik...

Anwar had aural hematomas late last year and had surgery - pie crusting sutures. His hematomas were very very small when he had his surgery... In fact they just had begun to fill the afternoon before. This type of suturing is painful because they sutures go through the cartlige. Anwar is a "too...

My girls will be getting the OFA rads taken in the next couple months and they will both be sedated. Proper hips rads require that the dog be 'stretched' and the legs to be 'turned' to achieve proper position. For some dogs that type of handling is ok but for many dogs it's not only very uncomfortab...

Just remember also that food trials for allergies need to be at least 6-8weeks before you'll know the results.

Well of course he opened his eyes when we got there but the news is good. Looks like his conjunctiva is irritated but there are not scratches or ulcers his pressure was good.

So we're starting him on some neoploybac drops and will see how it goes. Whew.

Possible eye infection...

So my poor little Deedle (aka Anwar) has been having a stressful last couple weeks with our move from NY back to Chicago and to top it all off it seems like he's come down with a possible eye infection in the last couple days. His third eye lids are fully raised and only when super stimulated will h...

Deedle had a mast cell tumor removed from his flank several years ago. The pathologist didn't recommend chemo and he hasn't had a reoccurance. Mast cell tumors are fairly common in dogs. The vets I work for remove them quite frequently. I wouldn't be too worried until you get your pathology report b...

I have been feeding my boy Anwar this food for about a year now.... I chose it because I wanted to feed a grain free but considering he is 8 years old now I didn't want to feed him the traditional Evo or other higher fat food. So far so great! He loves it and does fantastic on it. It's always been m...
