I feed the dogs active manuka honey twice a day, it's only done good things.

If you want to amuse yourself, slide a spoonful of honey into Molly's mouth and watch all the weird faces she makes :twisted:

If you're looking to provide all of your dog's food yourself, I think some research is in order. There are, of course, foods which we can eat, but which can be toxic to dogs ( check out the sticky on this ) but dogs also have some nutritional requirements that differ from people. I'm assuming from y...

I know this is a topic which many are very passionate about, but can I ask that we try to keep it civil and refrain from taking cheap shots or name calling? This is a good discussion and provides a good opportunity to better understand a variety of training methods, but it's not going to work if it ...

Is there an outside, qualified person who could evaluate the dog for you, since it seems like the picture of what actually happened is pretty muddy at the moment? Perhaps your vet could suggest someone? Or a local rescue?

On the flip side though, an adult dog, who has spent a decent amount of time in a foster home with children, is more of an open book, no?

My dog, Roxy, started to look skinnier about a month ago when it started getting really cold, so I upped her food and now she is looking good again. Basil and Streets are really prone to dropping weight really quickly when it gets cold out. Even with more couch time than the rest of the year, they ...

Are you looking to make your dog's whole diet yourself, or just things you can add to kibble?

How or how often were you giving the rescue remedy?

i understand that. there is always that slight chance, but they are NEVER alone. and in the chance that they are, i put 1 in my room and the other downstairs. i have done my research on these dogs, and i might be a noob to the breed but i give my 100% and try to make them happy while staying in con...

I don't know if you're going to find a totally black and white answer. There are obviously big advantages to neutering. There are, as is becoming increasingly obvious, some possibly negative effects as well. When you choose to neuter is also something to consider. I think you're going to have to wei...

It's really hard to tell from the picture, but for 2 or 3 years in a row both my dogs would get blisters on their toes right around where the fur meets the pads. I showed them to my vet numerous times and neither of us could figure out what they were or what might be causing them besides maybe moist...

About 50% of my dog's diets are pre-made raw patties. These are my general thoughts on the matter, but it's just my opinion.... I think it's important to still understand feeding raw regardless of feeding a pre-made product. If you don't have a grasp on how to feed, the issues that can arise and wou...
