Re: Killing Our pets with every meal.....

Have you seen the Dirty jobs episode where Mike Rowe goes to a rendering plant? Don't eat while watching it b/c it's disgusting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nCiI9Toc9Q" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; And the 3+ year old comments about hot dogs is just wack. Yes, the cheaper your ...

Re: Wearing Collar all the time??

I make my dogs where their collars during the days but at night when we are done walking and are settling in I take them off. They have slept with them but not regularly at night. But for my guys to make it outside they need to run through our door, and entire warehouse, and then 2 more locked doors...

Re: Re:

:goodpost: Agreed! While I think it is great that we are questioning what we feed our fur-kids, because it clearly shows that we care about them and their well-being, all of this "no corn!" "no grain!" "No by-products!" stuff is getting a little out of hand in my opini...

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

Dogs use their ears quite a bit in communication and that IS a fact. Dogs with cropped ears still use their ears the same way, though they may require more attention to 'detail' to pick up on it. (battle crops where there is virtually no ear ARE hard to read) In actuallity, this CAN lead to problem...

Re: Procter & Gamble purchases Natura (EVO)

If you find a local supplier for the grain-free formulas of Champion brand's other pet food, Acana (well, specifically the Pacifica; Booker can't eat lamb!) please let me know! I'll keep you posted – and Molly is pescatarian as well :). I'm going to ask the guy at the pet supply store in my neighbo...

Re: Procter & Gamble purchases Natura (EVO)

Proctor and Gamble is a horrible company.. Not only is this a more corporate food now so surely the food quality and quality control will diminish, but they also use vivisection as means of testing their food quality. I'm not for peta (i am vegan) but they do have a informative section with some dis...

Re: HELP PLZ!

There is a prescription SD I think it is WD that helps with diarrhea. But I also hear that SD is only suggested by vets 75% of the time due to the fact that if they endorse and sell SD, SD pays them extra, and then they are making retail mark ups off of it. Has anyone else heard this or am I talking...

Re: HELP PLZ!

When you switched her over was she getting diarrhea? Or was she fine and just recently got it after being on the wellness? If she was getting it during the switch over you should have taken a bit longer with each amount. If she was fine during the switch and it started recently it could be something...

Re: Keeping teeth healthy

I live in a very ethnic community and the stop and shop up my street carries chicken feet! They are frequently sold out though! But also my Super 88 (a chinese super market if you have never heard of it) carries them as well. I have the best luck around here at small family owned bodegas or hispanic...

Re: HELP PLZ!

When switching a puppy to a new food you want to do it slowly so the puppy can adjust to the new food. When you switch you want to add the new food slowly into the old food. Depending on what you are feeding her usually 1/4 of it should be the new food, when given a day add another 1/4 to it etc, un...

Re: Timberwolf - New Formula?

They actually did change their formula last yearish. The owner bought his own factory to make the food in and I think that was the reason he had to change some things about it. There were a few changes to it you can probably still find some stuff about it on google. I think all of there flavors use ...

Re: Dog wounded Gotti

Hope your guys feeling better. Like everyone else said the vet is a total necessity, and if you see this guy often next time you see him take down his info and tell him you reported him and he needs to pay for the vet bill! Hope every thing works out for the best, and maybe this guy will invest into...

Re: 2 questions-please

Depending on what joint supplement you are talking about the answer would depend on that. If you are just talking about Glucosamine/chondroitin from your local health food store (yes but) you would need to figure out the correct amount to give her/him per lb/kg. When I do this I prefer to buy the pi...

Re: Epsom Salt for sliced dew pad?

Gauze and vet wrap with neosporin or SSD (silver sulfadiazene) are your best bet... just be VERY careful with vet wrap because it can act like a rubber band and cut off circulation if you put it on too tight. I saw a dog lose a limb once because of vet-wrap applied too tight. My vet said just about...
