Modena- Bladder infections can be common in young female dogs. My mal pup had chronic UTI's for 2months! And I see them at my hospital all the time. My suggestions would be to give her the amox as close to bed time as possible. This will allow the meds to sit in her bladder for a long period of time...

Katch- Really I wouldn't worry. It's hard to say w/o seeing it but it could be a number of things. Sometimes dogs get a type of wart on their feet. It's pretty common in young dogs especially and nothing to worry about. If it's not bothering him and not rapidly changing I think he'll but quite all r...

I'm not sure how healthy it is but I can say that my dogs love love love to eat grass! Maybe it's cause we're in the city so fresh burb grass is like a delicacy. Sometimes they throw it up but for the most part it hasn't caused any problems. I would just let him as long as he doesn't vomit too much.

Actually neutering doesn't prevent cancers in dogs. (You'll find that in the same page your quoting.) Tumors associated with intact dogs are usually benign and enlargements usually can be treated hormonally.

elegy- You should try ordering them from http://www.kninekountry.com Those guys rock! Their sticks are the very best price for the quailty! I have found that they don't smell as bad as some cheaper versions. I think knine kountry was rec. by the Whole Dog Journal because of the quality in which ther...

If you don't want to do rawhide Bully Stick or sometimes called Bull Pizzles are a great alternative. Pits can rip through them easily but not as quick as rawhide. They are great for their teeth and don't get strecthy and gooy like rawhide. The only downside is sometimes they smell!

Tennis Balls

Fish- I haven't heard that before... but if it's true I'm screwed ! I can't imagine how that would have any validity. But, like anything, they can pose health concerns. They shouldn't be ingested. So if your dog makes a habit of swallowing things it chews on I would trade a kong for that tennis ball...

Feet

I would agree trying to switch his food to a fish and potato or one of the IVD foods like rabbit, venison etc. Other than that if you vet isn't figuring it out I would ask for a dermatology specialist referal. That's their gig and if anyone can figure it out they can! Good Luck!

A UTI is a very good possibility. It could likely be vaginitis which can be common in female pups. Surely take her to the vet.

Puppy

Your puppy will be fine being away from it's mother. I would, however, try to find some healthy puppies for him to interact with over the next couple of months. If you contact a local reputable trainer many of them have puppy socialization type classes. When he's a little older he will benefit from ...

Food

Whenever you switch foods to evaluate allergies you should give it a minimum of 6-8weeks. I know this sounds like a lot but it is the only way to get a true evaluation. My boy is a real itcher but derm caps 2x day and occasional triamicinalone really helps. Good Luck!
