also, the injured toe is not open and bleeding, its closed and swollen. Will the betadine help pull an infection out? I also thought about soaking it in warm salt water to help pull it out. Yeeeccchh. Poor guy. I dunno about if it's all closed up-- feet are tricky because they are so prone to getti...

Ouch! Booker's done that about 5000 times so far.... after the first few trips to the vet, we came up with a treatment plan. I first soak then flush the foot/toe in a diulted betadine mix to get any dirt and junk out. Then I carefully remove any frayed remaining little toenail pieces (it's softened ...

I think there is a member on here, LCD (maybe??) that has a dog named Bishop, who had the "cross-wind" ears for a while but I think they have straightened out now. Check a search of the Gallery, pretty sure there was a thread just devoted to Bishop as he was growing up....

If the edge of the cone is hitting/opening up the wounded area, he may need a longer cone... I bought the largest collar they sold at the store, but it still wasn't long enough to prevent my dog from licking the tip of his tail, so pacopoe and I improvised by taping plastic transparency sheets to th...

I tried it but it had sooooo many different protein sources and carbohydrate sources and other ingredients that my dog didn't do well on it at all. He got dandruff, anal gland leakage, and fluid-filled welts on his paws. Over time (and trying much simpler strict diets!) I found out what foods don't ...

God, I am so sorry. Poor little pup. I hope you stress to the breeder that what your pup (and the male) are suffering from is a GENETIC condition. The male should be neutered asap and not bred. Again, I am so sorry. x2 and if you do return this puppy to him, this puppy SHOULD NOT BE BRED when it is...

he was very loud about it! I don't believe you! Alright, the fabric for Oscar's mat is in the dryer now, and I might get started sewing tonight, although I'm beyond exhausted today. So maybe tomorrow. But I'm hoping to have it done by the weekend, and I'll begin working on that process with him, wi...

For a quick muzzle to be used at the vet or handling, not for walks or waiting around in a crate or in really hot weather, nothing like that, we use regular plastic Jafco muzzles. No flexible leather straps or flexible plastic straps, they do not IME work very well to protect from serious bite attem...

She is cute! I would personally never do two puppies because of the work load. I also think it is easier to have one dog well-trained and used to focusing on me, the owner, before adding a second dog to train but I also work full-time. If I was home more I would probably do things differently! <----...

All is well, his teeth look sooooooo good, almost as white as a puppy's. I guess that one tooth was okay even though it has discoloration on it. The dentist was still in surgery when I got to pick up Booker so I couldn't talk to him; I will call tomorrow. Booker was soooooooo groggy. It takes him a ...

Very impressive Red!! Thanks for posting. Tux is a joy to watch! Would it be accurate to say that the "click" is what must be well timed and the treat can follow? I have always tried to deliver the treat almost immediately with the click and I think this may be why I have had such a hard ...
