Sardine oil may have different quantities of Omega Fatty Acids vs. Salmon Oil. I use Hemp Oil because Muay is allergic to the salmon oil.

Throwing up that many times a week is not normal. You should look for a list of house plants that are toxic to dogs and see if any of the ones you have in your house are toxic. Both of my dogs eat lots of grass and don't throw up, they just like it. You should take a trip to your vet and rule out an...

I'm so sorry about the diagnosis, but at least you have a point to work forward from. Hopefully with medication her she will be comfortable for whatever time she has left. Please give Moshi a big hug from me.

Too bad for little Elmo. Sucks that it's so far for a chiro.

Hobbs the other SBT has back problems also and he sometimes does a little skip with his back leg so you can always tell with him when his back is out.

Could be allergies to dust. Could be a cold. There is a new dog flu - I believe there is a thread on it.

Some dogs have problems with nylon collars ripping the hair out of their dogs necks. This could be contributing to an existing problem. Can you try a collar that is lined with fabric? If the hair is really gone I would agree that it would be a couple of months before you will notice the hair filling...

Some grasses have little barbs on the blades that can cause allergic reactions in dogs. I have found that my white baby gets more rashes then my black dog. What kind of cream did you use? I've use cortisone cream very sparingly for allergic reactions. On the natural side, steeped green tea works wel...

I don't think it really makes a difference with male dogs once they are neutered. Tucker was 5 when he got snipped and although he likes to piss on every tree, every five feet and likes to be the boss around the yard we have no problems.

If the cut is really deep I probably wouldn't use the spray bandage. It doesn't say anything about being safe if dogs lick it.

Since you only switched to raw 6 weeks ago I would suspect that your dog is going through a little detox which can cause itchy skin. What meat(s) are you feeding? I use jojoba oil on my dogs skin, and I use aloe vera gel. Both of my dogs are fed raw, one has horrible allergies to all kinds of stuff ...
