If it fits in the budget I'd talk to your dvm about seeing a veterinary dentist for a possible root canal. Removing the lower canines can cause a degree of lip slouching. Granted it's a purely cosmetic thing it still can be a concern.

You MUST keep them totally separate! Your bitch can get pregnant at 9mo. I would call your vet today and schedule a spay as soon as possible. Now that you have allowed your male to be with her nothing will settle him down. It will likely take another week or two before he relaxes. This will happen t...

Heat cycles have different phases. During the first phase females are not receptive and often react unpleasantly when other dogs show interest in them.

Annika, Heartworm is transmitted to dogs by mosquitos. So in Chicago he's correct, there is no reason to give a heartworm preventative when there are no mosquitos. Some people continue on with the preventatives for their intestinal deworming properties. Fleas won't be alive outdoors after the second...

The trouble is it's quite difficult to really examine a dogs teeth while they are awake. It wouldn't surprise me that a vet didn't see it.

Your vet likely isn't concerned because at this point there really isn't anything they can do. Lyme disease only occurs 2-5months post tick bite. During that period tick titer testing can be inaccurate. The best thing to do is over the next few months watch for fever, lethargy, limping, lack of appe...

Our rescue contract specifically states that if for any reason you cannot keep the dog it MUST be returned to us and cannot be given to another party for any reason.

What happens to the dog once returned would have to be evaluated on an individual basis.

How is it NOT absorbed? Considering it says to make sure you wash your hands if you get any on you? If it's not absorbed how do you explain animals seizing after treatment? It's not absorbed. Read through the product literature. It stays in the skin gland and does not enter systemically. There curr...

It is not absorbed through the skin. It is purely topical.

I don't see any reason a UTI could cause a seizure. I would see if you could be referred to a Neurologist to diagnose and treat those seizures.

They look kind of good. I'm not sure how good they work though. The only time I ever saw it was when the owner was bringing their dog in to get an E collar because that one wasn't working good. That was our experience with it too, the dogs could still lick. That's usually because they're not fitted...
