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...

These are what I've used through three different grooming shops, and they work GREAT.

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...

Any chance you could post a pic so we can see how thin your dog is?

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...

It's perfectly reasonable to muzzle a dog that is growling at you. From someone who worked in an animal hospital for years it's upsetting to me that people would rather see people get bit by dogs than for them to wear a muzzle for a couple minutes. I don't know too many vets that will "play&quo...

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...

Yep, moved to NY a couple years ago and my s.o. is very good friends with him. They trained dogs together for years. Cya stayed with us before and he was quite the gentleman!

Most of the surgeons and PT's are putting their ortho patients on Dasuquin and Welactin as well as recommending Science Diet j/d kibble. I've had Anwar on Dasuquin and Welactin for about a year now and am happy with the results. The Science Diet j/d wouldn't be in fitting with what most of the forum...

Thanks for posting this, they really aren't too far form us.

On another note... Am I the only one who loves little goats?! I had a friend before with a little billy goat that was probably only 1.5ft tall and he was the most hilarious little dude ever! Very cool.

Awww, poor baby. Coming from someone who gets car sick themselves, I feel her pain. For me, Dramamine NON-DROWSY works best. Believe it or not regular Dramamine and Non-drowsy are two totally different drugs (Diphenhydrinate and Meclizine). I would give one a try (about and hour and a half before th...

DO NOT USE AN ECOLLAR. Using stimulation as a punisher and/or combining stimulation with emotional pressure is a recipie for disaster. Your best bet is to see if there are any trainers in your area that offer private in-home lessons. That way the trainer could walk you through the situations you're ...
