Re: How much do you feed?

Pups (42ish lbs) each get 1 1/3 cup twice a day. Coda (18lbs) gets about 1/3 cup twice a day. My guys are soooo busy and active in the house that they eat a ton and don't pack on the weight. Infact I might have to up Coda's food a bit more, she's looking a little too slim these last couple of weeks....

Re: My poor girls

Yikes! I hope everyone is in tip-top shape soon and feeling much better! I swear my animals know when I am done Christmas shopping and have to scrounge for money for a while til the pay checks come in after Christmas. In the last 6 years, we have had ATLEAST one vet visit a week before Christmas. On...

Re: Tripod Boxer!!

I think you spoke with leslie before...she has contacted a rescue she knows personally and they are going t...

Re: Peeing the bed

BF wanted to wait and see over the weekend - Dante had 3 accidents yesterday again, so we're taking in a urine sample this morning and we'll go from there. We tend to be over zealous with potty issues because my beagle had chronic UTI's and bladder stones, so accidents tend to freak me out, and with...

Re: Could use some ideas.

Our beagle at one point was 29 pounds. This was following bladder surgery and some icky prescription food - she's on the small side for a beagle and sits just right at 18 pounds. MEGA oops, poor chunker, she was massive. We mainly took the weight off by decreasing her food. She liked to walk, but li...

Re: Pancreas problems

Hows the dog doing now? My beagle had pancreatitis after she inhaled several pounds of cat and dog food in 5 minutes. She was fine the first few days, then she started vomiting any time she ate. We took her in and we fasted her for over 24 hours, put her on rice (no chicken, not nothing...just rice,...

Peeing the bed

Dante peed his bed 3 times yesterday and then he (or Mina, maybe) also pooped in the house during a flurry of three dogs running laps around the house, someone pooped...likely him, Mina trained pretty quickly. He peed the bed in the morning, then about 2 hours later, and then again atleast once duri...

Re: how often do you bath your dogs?

Does I can't remember the last time I bathed them, count? haha. My dogs are all quite prissy - they don't like icky dirty things. Well, that's not true. My beagle likes to roll on dead worms in the summer - but I don't have mud dogs, they don't like water really, so my guys stay pretty clean. The pu...

Re: Why do you feed the food you do?

Our old guy we switched to Wellness senior super five and he went on to be 15 before he passed. When we switched him at 12 we were sure we didn't have much longer with him...he was having a lot of trouble getting up and laying down, stiff and sore all the time and had lost his spark. He got MUCH hea...

Re: Switched food a month ago - still having diarrhea

Exercise gets the intestines moving and the digestive tract going.

We could always tell when our old guy was having trouble having a bowel movement - he'd run laps around the yard for 5 minutes - and then viola! It would happen for him.

Mina ALWAYS has diarrhea after a walk or harder exercise.

Re: Puppy Chow feeding amounts

Thanks. She actually feeds all her guys raw, but is pretty well regarded for nutrition info to a lot of people. Wasn't ever able to find any specific numbers though to look for - so thanks for those!

Re: Puppy Chow feeding amounts

"Large breed" is not a regulated term... so the food does not have to meet the recommended nutritional requirements for large breeds to be labeled as such. The orijen large breed is too rich for my tastes, and its calcium levels are far too high for a true large breed puppy. The Acana loo...

Orijen makes a large breed puppy food now. Acana is also good, they also have a large breed puppy food.

Re: sores

DoggLeggs makes some socks and wraps for dogs with sores or lick granulomas to keep them covered. I've never used them but have heard great things about them!
