Confusing behaviour around baby

We knew it would take a while to adjust our male, Dante, to the new baby (she's 1 now as of next week) and we were right. Initially he was just way too excited so interaction was limited to having him sit stay while we brought her to him to sniff, check out, etc and if he got too excited we'd correc...

Re: Tucker doesn't like kibble ...

Just wanted to pop in - Our beagle had a few recurrent UTI's and struvite crystals over the course of a few months, I had them culture her urine. We treated and fed the RX food as we were told to. She seemed to get better, the UTI's went away - then maybe a year or so later, she out of the blue pee'...

Re: Is this normal?

We call our female a less than nice name for a female because she sits like that all the time. lol She switches it up, but only sits 'normal' if cued to sit. Otherwise she's a slouch with her legs spread open. She's also the only dog I know who makes it a point to sit right on her butt, with her oth...

Re: Fast eating issues

Can you try 3 feeds a day? If it works to give him half and then half an hour later, maybe splitting it into 3 would work, too?

Re: Fast eating issues

Do you feed him once or twice a day? I have 3 hoover vacuums. Feeding time for all 3 takes about a minute, with my girls being done in about 45 seconds. It was 20 seconds or so before, they're insane. We have bowls that can be flipped upside down and filled, so we do that and it slows them down a bi...

Re: Tucker doesn't like kibble ...

My three now will eat anything and everything put infront of them - food or not. If we tell them to eat it, they will lol This makes pill giving EASY peasy, but can be a pain in the butt for the obvious reasons. Our old guy however, pickiest eater, EVER. He hated most foods - but loved treats. He'd ...

Re: Introducing new objects to nervous dog

Thank you! He's afraid of the clicker lol But, I do cue with "Yes" instead, so I can do that for sure with some kibbles. What about the things that make noise or move? Should I have them running from the start or wait until he's comfortable with them just being there, first? I don't know i...

Introducing new objects to nervous dog

Dante has been getting a lot better with his nerves - but he still doesn't like change in the house, AT ALL. A few weeks before Christmas, we had to buy a new garbage can. We put it in the same spot the old one was in, and he hated it. He'd go through the kitchen one way - but heading through the ot...

Mass under our beagle's skin

I found a hard, fixed lump under the skin on Coda's rear left leg today. It's about the size of half a small grape and not moveable. The skin moves over it, it seems attached to the tissues under neath. It's just above her knee joint. Our old guy had many lumps and bumps as he aged that we had aspir...

Thoughts on skin issues/ear infections and allergies

Dante has had an issue with a red belly/licking problem for probably a year+ now. It comes and goes, we've never really figured it out - it doesn't get super raw. Sometimes it seems to be more boredom related as he doesn't itch/lick when he's out and around us (the pups are crated at night/when we'r...

Re: Hot spot advice

The vet doesn't want to see him again, but we do have more antibiotics to pick up and some steriods this time that will hopefully do the trick. Fingers crossed. The benadryl last night didn't seem to help the itching too much, but it did eventually knock him out so he went to sleep. I think we will ...

Re: Hot spot advice

We're back to the vet tomorrow now. He scratched himself wide open again, and much bigger this time in less than two seconds. In the time it took us to stop him (we were sitting right there with him) damage was already done. Currently waiting and hoping the benadryl kicks in and we've put the cortis...

Re: Hot spot advice

Speaking of that How long after applying a cream is it then okay to lick? Dante can't reach his where it is now, but we haven't put the cortisone cream on because of the other dogs. He's started to crack now and I can tell the healing is making him itchy so I might try it. Should I just crate and ro...

Re: Hot spot advice

That looks so much better than his did! His is a giant scab now and was a HUGE wound. MissKiwi can probably weigh in on this - but our vet told us that if we noticed him itching like that again or caught a small hot spot to give him some benadryl and apply a cortisone cream to the spot (as long as i...
