It should be fine to feed to your dog, though it probably isn't suitable for human consumption. Do you guys think that wolves put their kills in the refrigerator or something when there are leftovers? lol Nope--they'll go back and eat the carcass for days and don't suffer any ill effects from it. G...

Great work, both of you. Maryellen, do you think you could put a note on the children age? Perhaps a "case by case discussed"? You might run into a mellow and very polite bully who would do great in a home with younger children.Or maybe a family with only one child on NILF that is capable...

Liz-he is already on cephalexin and prednisone. Doesn't seem to be helping much. Misskiwi-Rocky is going to be 6 in December. We do have another dog, Baby...if it is a wart, I would probably get it removed (if that's possible) to keep it spreading to her. They play together and sleep together. I'm t...

Better safe than sorry. Warts are essentially a tumor, so its not uncommon to have them biopsied, just to make sure you aren't missing something. It would be much better to biopsy a wart than to miss a mast cell tumor. Also, true warts are usually raised, and much smaller. I've never seen them anyw...

and the exam fee is 20 dollars as oppsed to 50 at the good vet. :oops: Sometimes you get what you pay for. :frown: ~Lindsay~ No doubt. But, I thought I could take him in and say "what is this?" and he would say, "oh, that looks like a blank, you do blank for it." I do agree that...

Sorry no edit button. I don't know if the clinical diagnosis is eczema per se, but dogs can get very similar conditions. I think I would freak at any vet who says to me "it might be infected hair follicles or a serious as cancer?" WTF??? I just have to know who your vet is..please pm me!!...

IDK, but I hope it's nothing serious. Is it bothering him at all? How soon will you get it tested? He isn't scratching at it...thank goodness because it looks as though it would burst. When we poke around that area it does seem to be tender...the vet even had to muzzle him to look. He's going in fo...

WTF is THIS?

Rocky has grown a weird thing on his neck..we first thought it was a hotspot, but...it isn't. This pic is majorly blurry..but..it looks like cauliflower, greyish red bumps in a cluster, and more of them going about 2 inches down his neck. The vet has scared me, he wants Rock in for a biopsy ASAP, ha...

Rocky ate a FIVE POUND milk chocolate bunny about three yrs ago. We made him puke (that was fun!) and he was okay, with a little bit of runny poop for a few days.

Ok, a little change of course maybe.. I'm also interested in the quality of the ingredients in different foods..ie. the price of them, how much it costs to manufacture them, the availabilty of them etc. Corn is cheap. We all know that. I'm assuming that animal by-products are cheaper than real cuts ...

Big name companies, be it Hills or Innova, are all trying to sell their foods however they can. Just because Hills gets picked on more than anyone else doesn't mean its the worst of the worst. It's pretty close to it, I'm sorry to say. Here's a comparison: Alpo First Ten Ingredients Ground yellow c...

That's what ALL vets should be like...geared towards the overall health of the animal. Something unbelievable I just found: Did you know: the so called "clinical trials" the AAFCO performs on pet foods are only 6 months long, and the only requirement that the food must meet to pass is that...

Missikiwi, I'm not saying that some dogs don't flourish on foods like this...I fed my dog no name brand food for twelve years before I knew better and he was healthy as a horse. My point is...vets are supposed to be looking out for the best interests of a dog's health, aren't they? Don't they know t...

Science Diet WTF.

I work in a boarding kennell, one that promotes raw feeding and at the very least high quality kibble. Since starting there a year ago, I became interested in the ingredients in dog food, so when the dogs come in, I like to read the backs of the dog food bags that come with them.
