I'm posting a little late, but I don't know if he's better. Jada has a pulled shoulder muscle right now, and she's on crate rest for a week. This means she only goes potty on a leash, because she's nuts like you say Jack is. She would be allowed out of the crate, except she loves to run around the h...

Jada had something that looked similar on her chin. It turned out to be staph infection. She does get some bumps on her back and sides occasionally, but never that severe. My vet would prescribe ceph for 2 weeks, but it would come back. Finally I had a friend who told me that keeping her dog on ceph...

Lol, I thought the worst would be the whining to get out. But its the fact that she gets up in the middle of the night about 10 times(no exaggeration) and acts like she has to go potty. So I end up getting up to take her little spoiled butt out. Luckily when I just took her out she is looking almost...

I do every 6 months, and Jada goes a LOT of places. She did get kennel cough from a dog show when she was about 6 month. Apparently quite a few peoples dogs came down with it that weekend. Another friend of mine, had her dogs come down with it after another show, just a few weeks ago. Never gotten i...

Rest is you best bet. Pulls take some time to heal. If she uses it too much it will be reinjured. I agree! Poor Jada! Get better soon Lol, poor Jada...you mean poor me!!! SHe's NOT doing well with the crate rest. I have a crate in my bedroom, and one in the livingroom/kitchen area, and both places,...

I don't know how true this is(so someone who knows better can probably answer) but I've been told that you shouldn't work a puppy too much on a springpole because it can actually mess up the bite. I guess this is more for show dogs, but just thought I'd through that out. Like I said, I dont know how...

Pulled muscle, any advice?

Last night at handling class Jada was limping a little. Not even limping as much as just kind of lagging a little with her left side. Like she was trying not to extend it completely. The trainer is pretty sure she just pulled a muscle. So now Jada is on crate rest, and on leash for potty. Does anyon...

In my experience, Frontline does very little against fleas. It was mainly created for ticks. I used it, and within 2 weeks, the fleas were back. My vet reccomended Advantage, and I only have to use it once every 6 weeks.

Make sure you wipe down counters and stuff after bombing!!!!

Tea tree can actually be toxic to dogs. I believe its okay to use when diluted, or in VERY small amounts. Just curious if your girl is spayed or not? My dog, and a friends dog, both lose hair after going out of heat. For Jada its more like blowing her coat, but she gets sparse patches about a month ...

My rule is that if you can feel the hip bones when the dog is lying down curled up, they need to gain a little weight. This is just what I've used in Jada's weight. I like to easily be able to feel her ribs, and can usuall feel the backbone when she's curled up. Your girl doesn't look too skinny!

Jada had a slight case on her chin for a while when she was about 6-10 months old. A lot of times their hormones changing can lower the immune system. I've known several dogs who have had it(generalized) and have completely grown out of it. My vet did warn me that staph infection can follow. Which i...

Nupro

Jada eats Canidae, but isn't crazy about it, so I add Nupro, she loves the taste of it. I can see better muscle tone, her coat looks a lot better, and her energy level increases 10x what it normally is(and she's already one super hyper little girl).

My boss LOVES it. She has a Persian cat who hates to be groomed. She tries to keep up with it daily, but he's so bad that she uses the rescue remedy every few days to calm him down and really work on it.

I took in ONE picture of a friends dog. He measure the ear, from the top of the head(where the head and ear meet in the middle), to the tip of the ear on the outside. It was 2", and I told him I wanted 1 3/4, and WROTE it on the paper. I knew EXACTLY what I wanted. It was actually Jada's half sister...
