Re: Negative Reinforcement

Would you count having to sit nicely before coming out of the crate when the owner gets home? The crate is not a punishment, but the waiting-to-come-say-hi-to-mom is "unpleasant" I guess.

Re: Bump?

Lymphangiectasia actually means dilated lymphatic vessels... so I'm assuming he means a small lymphatic vessel in that part of the skin would be clogged and unable to drain lymph away.
Like Allison said it can happen in the intestines too but that doesn't sound like what's going on with your dog.

Re: TICK EMERGENCY!!!

Frontline is fipronil, not permethrin. If I were you I'd be careful about telling people on the internet to feed or apply garlic and tea tree oil to their pets, since it is well known that they are toxic to dogs - especially since they are not dosed by weight like commercial flea products are. http:...

Re: Underweight diabetic

If I were you I would look for an Internal Medicine specialist vet and then possibly a board-certified veterinary nutritionist. If there is a vet school near you they will have those services, or you can look up a vet specialty center near you. It may be that the diabetes is not well regulated or th...

Re: Am Veterinary Med Assn ruling against Raw Pet Foods

^Humans and animals both have lots of defenses against pathogens, including lysozyme, low gastric pH, local gut immunity, and so on. That doesn't mean either one is completely protected at all times from pathogens.

Re: Am Veterinary Med Assn ruling against Raw Pet Foods

It's not a law. It's just the AVMA saying their position on it, just like they have positions on many other issues.

Re: Wonderful Website

I dunno, I had my first one for 2 years after it was given to me used, walked my own dog every day with it, and then walked a bunch of shelter dogs with it. It was totally fine feeling (until my foster chewed the handle off... sigh).

Re: Wonderful Website

I love their Mendota slip leads. Super strong and have leather instead of metal next to the handle so you don't hurt your hands.
