Re: Temperament - venting

That is so sad :(

The majority of dogs I have fostered have been adults, so that may have something to do with it. It would be heart breaking to have a puppy with serious temperament issues.

Re: Temperament - venting

Because rescuers are humans too.

And often they are humans with a good heart but little understanding of dog behavior.

And......I have honestly never seen a puppy in rescue with a temperament issue.

Re: Stinky Breath

I have been expressing them when he needs it. Today he was stinky and licking his bum so I expressed him and there was a little bit of blood in it :(

Could it be an infected or impacted gland?

Re: Stinky Breath

Re: Stinky Breath

The thing is, he never had anal gland problems before. Now he is leaking all over himself and anything he sits on. Pretty large amounts and I am needing to wipe him down 4+ times a day (he seems to 'clean' himself pretty well, but he leaks all over when he is sleeping).

Re: Stinky Breath

So Apollo's breath is still stinky, his gas is pretty much gone, but his anal glands are leaking. And it went from being white discharge to brown. His stools are normal. Is it normal for anal discharge to change colors? I am worried and going to make another vet appointment. Maybe his stink breath i...

glad vet gave him the o.k.


She did mention kidney diseases and wants me to bring in some urine and will draw some blood if it doesn't clear up. But he is not showing any other symptoms, so I hope it is just the change of diet :pray
