Re: Anyone tried Apoquel? Molly's itchiness hopefully resolv

Apoquel is brand new, so I don't have any experience with it yet, but it's been so popular they are already having supply issues.

Re: Starter muzzle?

I prefer basket muzzles. They allow the dog to pant and drink water, and are the muzzles used by racing greyhounds so for those who recognize them they can be less intimidating. You can also feed soft food through the muzzle, so a big bowl of mashed up canned food while the muzzle is on can make it ...

Re: sspike here

Read the information on the top of the intro section. The moderators will need to approve your introduction, and sometimes it takes a day or toe because they are busy people.

The board is heavily moderated to prevent troublemakers, it's a great community and worth the effort/wait!

Re: Mast Cell Tumors

Mast cell tumors can be anywhere and look like anything. Luckily most donate cells well for analysis with a simple needle biopsy. All new masses should be checked in this way.

Re: After care of blockage surgery

Romeo would eat about 1 peach pit a year. He was small enough that they'd just roll around until he'd puke them back up. Longest he ever had one rolling around was 4 months (that I knew he got into anyway). He'd always partially chew them so I never knew if he'd gotten any whole until he puked them ...

Re: Urinary trouble

How low is the specific gravity? Do you know exact numbers? The specific gravity can help narrow down differentials.

Re: Canned vs. Dry food

Cats are more specialized than dogs, so the canned food is more important for them. Some dogs are excellent water drinkers (some to excess!) and dry food likely doesn't affect them. Other dogs aren't good drinkers, so like cats, getting them to eat their fluids may work better. Each pet is an indivi...

Re: LEGO: From prepared to paranoid...

So this might be late to the thread, I skipped the last few replies, but yes, it's absolutely normal to be a bit paranoid. I'm getting a hunting dog puppy in 6 days. The puppy will be trained by me, but mostly hunt with my boyfriend and his buddies - no pressure! I think I own every training manual ...

Re: Knee Surgery - Yes or no?

I would recommend doing the rehab. We have a rehab center associated with my clinic, and it really makes a big difference. You can do just a few sessions or many, and if you can only afford a few they should be able to teach you massage and range of motion type things to do at home. Its well worth it.

Re: travel stuff

Just throw a blanket down and teach your dogs to sit quietly in the car.

Or look into regular seat covers instead of the ones made for dogs.

Re: Stuffed Kong on raw diet?

Do dishwasher temperatures sterilize? Like autoclave sterilize?? Because that sounds like a super awesome way to spread salmonella to your human dishes to me... Yes because peanut butter, kibble, treats and canned foods have NEVER been recalled for bacteria. lol And while that is true, they do not ...

Re: Stuffed Kong on raw diet?

Well, guess I can never eat chicken again, since that would require it to touch a dish before cooking! And I could never cut it into pieces before cooking, since the knife and cutting board would be forever tainted! Since it is apparently impossible to wash salmonella off. Sent from my SPH-D710 usi...
