Re: leaking Urine

Yeah, definitely do the urinalysis. Black cohosh is something I tried for my dog for leaking. Didn't work, but it's maybe something to try. I have no idea what the dosage is... my vet found it for me back when we tried it. Also, DES is a different prescription medication used for leaking (info page ...

Well it wont help you with his lunging/pulling or barking and obnoxious behavior. Oh gosh, that's *exactly* the kind of behavior Contr...

Re: How does your dog feel about thunderstorms?

My pit bulls don't care at all. My Border Collie is terrified of them. He takes Xanax for storms but even that doesn't make him completely comfortable, just less frantic.

There's a few more down here that regularly race in the low-4's in a line-up. dayum. we have some nice bullies ...
