Re: Sneaky's latest ordeal

Would fleece booties work? You can buy them from dogbooties.com for $2.50 apiece. I have their regular cordura booties and they stay on pretty well. They just have a strip of velcro around the top, nothing magical, but inexpensive and they make my life easier during mud season :)

Re: Arthritis...

A joint supplement and fish oil daily with NSAIDs as needed is what I use with my arthritic girl. She rarely needs the Rimadyl but every once in awhile she overdoes it and I pop her a dose to keep her comfortable.

If you can afford it, feed canned. That alone can make a huge difference in weight control for many cats.

Re: Nature's Variety (or TOTW)

I'm a serial food-switcher as well. I often feed the pit bulls TOTW. They do well on it. It's a bit less calorically dense than many of the other foods that I feed, so Mushroom gets to eat more, which suits him. I look for the opposite for my Border Collie- it's a struggle to keep weight on him, so ...

Re: Anyone with cold laser experience?

Not for arthritis but my Border Collie has had it for a couple injuries. He had weekly laser treatments for his iliopsoas pull, and then had a laser treatment on a pulled/sore triceps muscle last month. It's one of those things that it's hard to tell if it helped, because it was just one part of a t...

Re: Sensitive pads

I have the same issue with my Border Collie. It is SO frustrating. I bought Musher's Secret and have been trying to use it regularly. Tuf Foot has also been recommended to me, but I haven't tried it yet. I need to get some. New-Skin spray-on liquid bandage got us through our last flyball tournament ...

Re: Bites, What Do You Think?

Any word? How's he looking?

We had a dog come in to work awhile ago covered with similar spots and the vet's best guess was black fly bites.

Re: Can exercising a young dog be dangerous?

i wouldn't do any sustained running or running on a hard surface for a puppy/young dog, but running the backyard on grass or whatever is fine.

Ooh thanks for the infodog link. I want to get my BC's eyes CERFed, but the clinic that my club holds is always at the same time as a flyball tournament we attend.

Re: Steve's feet.

i have no idea if the merle could be contributing or not. the only other dog i know who is this bad with his feet outside of flyball is black and white (though also a bc). @mtlu - no, he doesn't get walked much on pavement. walking him in town is so boring and with all the loose dogs, kind of danger...
