Re: Good diet for an elderly dog?

It's sometimes tricky to differentiate between a marketing ploy and actual benefit, so I would just look at what the ingredients are, where the calories are coming from (white starchy potatoes? soy grits? muscle and bone meal? etc) in the food and then to also adjust her caloric intake as needed and...

Re: Good diet for an elderly dog?

Most "senior" food just are lower protein/fat/calories, and have slight amounts (ie, not enough to be theraputic) levels of glucosamine added. I think if you found a regular food for her that she liked and did well on with decent protein/fat/calories, and then supplemented with Glyco-Flex ...

Re: Dog..Itching Bald, raw place on back

I would bring her in to the vet. Treating FAD requires really good flea control (often in pill format) and sometimes some other pills to help with the swelling. You will have to be very consistent and she will always need careful management but it can be done. I have seen bald, bloody dogs with thic...

I think she meant generally speaking not that you specifically had to get a paper route. For example: my first jobs were being a part time secretary for a Driver's Ed School and working part-time lifeguarding and teaching swimming lessons. I used the money for horse stuff. Anyway. If you've decided ...

Re: Good News :)

If there is NO WAY that you can change ANYTHING about the care and management of your dogs then I guess you either are --or need to get-- happy with the status quo. If you are willing to make waves and do the difficult thing, which is changing human behaviors, there have already been anazing resourc...

Oooh, the numbering is a really good idea!

Re: Please pray for Boss

Fingers crossed!!! The anti-inflammatory prescription tablets (Rimadyl, Deramaxx, etc) can be expensive but work SO WELL assuming his liver/bloodwork looks good. Make sure you give them daily so the inflammation stays under control, rather than having to play 'catch-up.' If he is on Rimadyl, there i...
