New MCT? chewing his backside and a bald cat

This is not a good day! Woke up to slurpy noises and Jack was chewing up his backside- I don't know why- he recently switched to raw and is on year round flea preventative. He doesn't mind the taste of bitter apple and I figured I'd take them on a walk even though it's freezing out- but at least his...

Re: switched to raw

There are a lot of different brands of dog (and cat) premade raw. Once you get used to it, you might find it worthwhile to do it yourself, since it's MUCH MUCH cheaper to do that than the premade. But the convenience of premade is lovely, and I admit I usually have a day or two of premade in the fr...

switched to raw

My local feed store sells frozen raw patties that are formulated with all the bones, organs, etc. so it makes rawfeeding idiot proof for people like me. It's Thomaston Feed if anyone is in the area - the owner wrote a book "To Your Dog's Health" and I have learned a lot from him. I never s...

Re: new here

Hi welcome :) kids and dogs are a great combination and it sounds like your dog is really tolerant I have 3 kids and always owned dogs. Just to be safe I supervised kids and pups when together and never allowed roughhousing like riding on or tailpulling or messing with ears. At some point the dog ma...

Re: New grain-free dog food!

Im still feeding it but mine did ok on kirkland lamb also. Their poops are a little looser than I like which wouldn't bother me except their normal potty area in the back woods is snowed in so they are going close to the house and I have to pick it up :(

For ellie I used hope clinic for her spay and they charged around $100. for spay, tattoo, vacc, nails -the works. Very happy. They might receive grants or donations to offer low c...

Re: What do you do?!!

Since I deliver mail in a low income area I come across these situations often. I've been out since having rotator cuff surgery and really feel so much better not having to see this stuff everyday. I'm dreading going back to work. It's difficult, just remember you can't save everyone. If you can edu...

Re: Are all bully sticks created equal?

If anyone is in the New England area, the Ocean State Job Lots stores have a good quality 12 inch long bully stick for $2.00. They are better than rawhides or pigs ears, but they don't last long enough. They work well as a sometime treat. Ocean State Job Lot Rocks!!!! I always find great things the...

Re: New grain-free dog food!

We are slow in CT apparently- I was in the Waterbury Costcos today and Nature's Domain finally arrived. I literally go to Costcos twice a month and don't always buy dog food so maybe it's been there awile, but anyway I bought a bag and will phase it in and see how it goes. I don't foresee any proble...

Re: Worried-Jack is trembling

Glad to hear it doesn't sound like something real serious. Thanks- the vet didn't think the lump was a mast cell so just waiting patiently for the call on that one. He hasn't been trembling, and the weird thing is my husband remembered that the day I saw the trembling we had really bizarre weather....

Re: Worried-Jack is trembling

Well to follow up he had xrays and full blood panel done - and he got his teeth cleaned. The vet said he probably has some muscle soreness from running, but his hips look great. His lump was aspirated and he had a rash on his neck which is a staph infection - 30 days of cephalexin. He was so cute an...

Re: Worried-Jack is trembling

He had his yearly in June and I just got around to making the dental appointment. pitsnok - 6 yrs ago Jack was tested for thyroi...
