Re: Supplement

I would suggest, rather that a catch-all supplement, targeting your funds on 2 items to start.

Salmon (or a fish body oil)
a joint supplement. Everyone has different ones that they like. I use Glyco-flex for all of my dogs.

Re: Supplement

What food are you feeding? a good foundation nutrition in your everyday feed is the first step.

Re: what to do for dry skin other than fish oil?

So with the coconut oil do I add it to her food or do I give it to her straight? Where can it be found? Thanks for all of the replies guys! :) Either. I just plop it on the top but mine will also eat it off of a spoon. Trader Joe's is now carrying it. Not sure about major/regional chains. Whole Foo...

Re: what to do for dry skin other than fish oil?

Coconut oil!!! also , really increasing almost any fat can help on some level so if coconut oil is hard-to-find or expensive in your area, you can try other things. Olive oil can be ok, as can a peanut butter that's just peanuts (read the labels!) NIchole - I think starting at a teaspoon a day for y...

Re: Our Vet Visit came up with an issue.

I agree whole WHOLE heartedly with Sarah and Leslie.

Plus to recommend buying additional food "toppers" and supplements while giving you the thumbs up for Purina Puppy Chow? Talk about confusing!

Re: Dog Warts

Try L-Lysine. about 50mg once a day. I'm not sure if it works for all or just mouth ones but it worked for Levi's oral ones.

Re: Feeding a lot and no weight gain.

Some dogs are hard to keep weight on and some can get chubby in the blink of an eye. It depends on the individual dog. Each of mine are very different and if effects how much food they get. For example, my younger pit bull tends to put on weight in the winter very easily - my little terrier is 14 po...

Re: Feeding a lot and no weight gain.

I think he looks fine now. Why are you worried about him losing weight enough to have to put extra weight on him?

If he's a fine weight now (which it looks like he is) and his poops are fine and he's negative for parasites, then I don't really see the need to pour extra calories and fat into him?

Re: Muscle/Bone building vitamin supplements

he is being fed Eukaneba for puppies. he is about 6 months old. I suggest a higher quality food. That's not a good choice for a growing puppy at all. Lots of fillers (I'm sure he has big poops, right?). I don't feed kibble but you can use the search function in the health section for "puppy fo...

I haven't read all 10 pages, but I'm also curious about the oils. I'm really wanting to use safer, non-chemical cleaners in my home, but want it to be safe for my cats and dog.

Re: Muscle/Bone building vitamin supplements

Has anyone experiments with the so called "muscle building" supplements, such as Bully Max, etc. If so, please post your experience with it. I haven't. I prefer to help my dogs reach their best through just plain old good nutrition and exercise. The reason i ask, is NOT because I want my ...

Re: Feeding Raw

I have been slowly switching him over for a little over a month. He is on chicken legs right now. I am holding off on the heart/liver, it is sitting in the freezer. My friend just slaughtered some of her cattle herd and gave me a heart/liver and I couldn't say no to free dog food lol I just wasn't ...
