Re: Pet Insurance

Ok, guys, there is a new kid in town and I am switching... Trupanion hiked up my rates by 45% (they did it for everyone in Florida and California), so I am no longer supportive of them. The new insurance is http://www.healthypawspetinsurance.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; They a...

Living with lumbosacral spondylosis

So, Sheba was diagnosed with that thing... Everything she loves doing involves jumping - Dock Jumping in particular. I wonder if anyone elses dog is living with lumbosacral spondylosis, and if you still let them be a dog and do things they love. Are there any supplements that worth trying? She doesn...

Re: Pet Insurance

Oh, and there is no limit on amount they will cover. It used to be 20K, but that have changed it this year to unlimited. So, if your procedure costs 10K or whatever - they got your back.

Re: Pet Insurance

Bringing this thread back... with all the horror stories I've been hearing recently, plus helping my mom with the shelties, it just seems pointless not to get insurance for Turtle. I've looked into a few companies, and I'm pretty much leaning towards Trupanion, but I have a few questions about it (...

Re: Stubborn Dog, a.k.a. Jump In the Pool Already!

Rhonna doesn't have a heated pool, so we may be SOL until next season. I don't know of any heated pools :) But this: http://www.lcsupply.com/Product/Dog-Boots-Vests/Dog-Vests/neoprene-dog-vest1.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; has been a life saver for my naked-belly dog in the c...

Re: Stubborn Dog, a.k.a. Jump In the Pool Already!

Yeah, I don't think Rhonna will help you here. If you are coming to the next competition for a practice time (in a week, I believe?), contact Urs, and ask her to schedule a private with you before the competition starts. She accommodates things like that.

Re: Stubborn Dog, a.k.a. Jump In the Pool Already!

It is all a matter of confidence level and repetition. Sheba would jump off the low dock into dark water (bay or river), but it took her almost a whole season to jump into the pool. Once she crossed that threshold, she never looked back. Just don't get frustrated or give up: do things at his pace. A...

Re: Stitches. Infected. What to do?

It is red and looks puffy. There was another growth removed the same day, and that one looks completely healed, no redness, etc. Both were done on the 9th.

Stitches. Infected. What to do?

Sheba had a growth removed on her hind paw. There were few stitches (maybe 3), and she was so good about not touching them for almost a week, but today I noticed that the stitched wound is all read and infected looking. So, she might have gotten to it after all. Or something gotten into the wound. W...

Mutant fleas...

I think we have some kind of mutant fleas here. Sheba is on Advantix (has been for years), but this year she keeps biting herself even on the treatment. Poor thing was up all night for the past few days, scratching, and biting and licking. She is covered in bumps (her reaction to flea bites), and I ...

Re: Not a dog owner but a concerned dog sitter.

My dog gets those from number of things: certain types of grass, new detergent (when I was her bedding), abnormally aggressive fleas. There would be times that she ends up looking like a lizard. She doesn't seem to itch much either, she just covered in bumps. Removing the source of irritation (ie: a...
