Re: Dog poops way too much

try putting your dog on a limited ingredient food... ie, only 1 protein source. It may be an allergic response to 1 or more of the protiens in the food. My Pit does not do good on Salmon or Turkey, and gets the runs as you describe. Try chicken, rabbit, lamb and/or beef, 1 at a time to see what work...

Re: Product ideas needed to make my dog stop licking her wou

Kanobis' vet recommended using VICKs vapor rub to stop licking since it tastes terrible but is non toxic.

Lumps on my APBT

Kanobi was treated for a skin condition with Clavamox for 14 days about 2 weeks prior to us adopting him. The scabs cleared up and he was fine. About 6 weeks ago I had him on NV Salmon and the bumps slowly started to return. I took him off the Salmon and put him on NV Rabbit thinking the bumps were ...

Re: OMG satan dog

thanks MarMar.. I will def. look at those links. I got him some new toys and a stuffed bone. He has been working on the bone, and in-between he's been playing with his new ball and I got a new tug-of-war rope.

on average, we play about 2-2.5 hours a day.

Re: Top 5 Foods

I was feeding Kanobi NV Rabbit kibble and rotated him to NV Salmon and he is now very very loose when he deficates. I thought rotation of feed of the same brand was seemless and without digestive issue. What is the problem?
