Re: Small growths on his nutz sack

Tumors around that area in un-neutered dogs are not uncommon at all.

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

It is still easy to read body language on a dog with cropped ears and docked tail.

Re: Flea and Tick.....

Exactly what chemicals in Frontline are you worried about on your dog? If you really want to understand which chemicals to fear then you need to learn some more about chemistry. There are many many compounds that would kill you in a concentration of 2.7%. Also, if you're really worried about chemica...

Re: Running away.....

If you're trying to catch a loose dog, get their attention and run away from them. Most times they will chase you. Then praise for coming, don't punish.

If YOU think something is wrong with your dog, then keep investigating it.

Being fecally incontinent doesn't kill dogs. Cancer does.

Why would you have to euthanize if he couldn't control his bowels?

Re: Speutering of mature male/female dogs

Look up "perianal adenocarcinoma" and see if that's something you want Canon to have. It's pretty common in older, male, intact dogs. They bleed, interfere with defecation and look nasty. Almost never malignant, but won't go away for good unless the dog is neutered. I've seen many fosters ...

Re: Garlic for dogs?

The feeding of garlic and a dog not getting fleas are not necessarily correlated. None of my dogs get any topical or oral flea meds and they've also never had fleas. They also don't eat garlic. We live in an area that has a lot of fleas.

Re: helpppppp 2 puppys cages ??

It really doesn't make a huge difference where you keep each crate. Put the crates where they make the most sense for you in your house.

I have to ask, why don't you spell the word 'and' with the letter 'a'?

Re: Questions about Spaying through a Shelter

Fostering through a municipal shelter is almost always a bad idea.

Look, the shelter's resources are running thin. They always are. If you want something special, pay for it yourself and let the dogs/cats who need those funds use them.

Re: Recall in the Yard

The thing is, the dog doesn't see food and shelter as an immediate reward for coming inside. He's not going to think, "Well, I really would rather stay outside but this nice lady gives me a warm house to live in so I guess I can do it for her." He needs to think, "Sniffing the ground ...

Re: She killed a puppy

I think you're ok to return the dog and from a fostering perspective, it's the best choice for all involved. You have an adult pit bull that has killed another dog. NOBODY is going to want her. As soon as you tell someone else that she's killed another dog, they're going to head for the hills. Menti...

Re: Belly Bands?

I'm guessing Cody is getting up to pee and not peeing and laying in it. If he wouldn't like being confined to an x-pen, just put lots of puppy pads in areas where he may be likely to go. Odds are, there is some kind of pattern to where he's going. I had an elderly Chihuahua who couldn't hold it long...
