yes she doesn't look like a boy. Plus its hard to miss the fact that shes a girl when you have a thermometer in her butt. I have been using the spray and her t-shirt. its definitely helping. This pink thing is new. I think there was enough time between med's, but I will call the vet to double check....

Are you in the Sunset? I like my vet out there on Taraval. Not a fancy looking place, but they've always been nice and responsive. Avenues Pet Hospital. I'm in Potrero Hill. All Pets is a good place, but I guess I wanted a 2nd opinion, or some hollistic advice for possible remedies. I'll keep looki...

you're right. I'll go with the organic chix mix. Neither of them get the squirts on the NV. I'll see how the chick organic works. As far as baths go, whenever rod is submersed in water, whether its a bath or in the ocean/lake/bay, he breaks out in bumps. The hyper allergenic soap I've been using doe...

I'll give her more time on the raw food before I go nuts. I will probably switch them to raw chicken diet from NV, to rule out the red meat allergy causing his gland problem. INGREDIENTS: Chicken, Raw Ground Chicken Bone, Turkey, Turkey Liver, Turkey Heart, Apples, Carrots, Butternut Squash, Ground ...

yes, the vet said he was going to prescribe it for her because of how pink she is. It could be some sort of skin infection that he wanted to treat.
The single protein/carb sounds like a good idea.
I would probably feed it raw. Any suggestions?

I will try and switch them both off of the red meat. Baylee came to us itchy, with a rash. The rash on her belly is gone but she seems more pink. Rod's been through most all meat sources, and seemed to do best on the beef. I tried the rabbit for him, but that was not good. And if I remember correctl...

Where did you go? Was this a vet in SF? I like the current vet I have (he's a bit aloof and all business but good) and the vet techs LOVE Molly. I have the name of a second vet (recommended to me by an acquaintance with two very active GSPs – one of which has a bad hip/leg) that I may try in the fu...

yeah I dont know why they didn't give him any meds to clear up the infection. They are both on benedryl. Rod gets (4) 25mg tabs and I just upped hers to (2). Baylee has some spray to alleviate the itch and also t-shirts. I think I'll start putting her shirt on. She's not outside too much as she does...

interesting visit to new vet

well I have to say that I was disappointed yesterday. I took both dogs in. I do have to say that part of the confusion may have been taking both dogs in at the same time and it was our 1st visit. 1st bad sign- vet tech kept calling Baylee a good boy while taking her temperature. I guess maybe she ju...

I would go to the vet to be safe. If the cut is still open, they can flush it out. Bites can be deceiving because a lot of the damage is under the skin and then can get worse with bacteria.

good luck!
I'm running into some allergy problems once again with Rod. Baylee the foster seems to have some skin issues as well. We go to the new vet on Monday, so we shall see.

I really don't see Rod and Baylee being temporary...I saw Linda's face when I said "do you think you will keep her", Damien said it's up to her and I looked at her, she was beaming ear to ear looking at Rod and Baylee standing together.... Baylee is one cutie petutie! :inlove: Such a grea...

she pulls her self forward with her front paws and scoots her butt. Its damn cute but its irritating her belly. I'll have to post a video of it. We haven't been really "correcting" her yet. I want to let her get used to things before we start training. She is a softy though. But its good w...

yeah. Thats the one draw back of working rod out all the time. We bring water with us and he'll drink a whole lot during the workout. So he always has to pee twice as much. Ooh and now i have two blatters to worry about. Yee haa, I'm nuts.
