Re: Got some bad news :(

Thanks again everyone for all the kind words. Unfortunately, Monty has passed :( My husband and I were lucky enough to both be with him. I know he is in a better place, but that does not make it easier. My poor daughter is having a very hard time with him no longer being here, they were best buds :(...

Re: Got some bad news :(

Thanks for all the kind words everyone, it really means a lot, really. He has been the best dog I've had and he has been wonderful w/ everyone...especially the kids. I'm glad we were able to rescue him and let him live out his remaining years in a loving home instead of passed around and dumped :( P...

Got some bad news :(

Well, I haven't been on in a while, but as some of you know we've been battling allergies w/ Monty for the last few years. However, back in November we thought he was having a major allergy issue...but knew something else was going on. He dropped down to 98 lbs (from 110), was lethargic and vommitti...

Re: Single protein food?

Thanks for the help everyone! I'm definitely gonna look in to some of these. I feel so bad for him! He was a rescue and was in really rough shape. He is chewing on himself like crazy! He chews his feet to the point he has puncture wounds that I am trying really hard to keep clean. He just got put on...

Single protein food?

I'm having some issues w/ my poor pup. He has allergies really bad. We were told it's a flea allergy, which made sense b/c he was only having issues in the warmer weather...one vet thought it was a food allergy...though he'd been on the same food and never had problems...except for the first summer ...

Re: Need some allergy help PLEASE!

Calendula Tea works wonders. I have a dog who gets very bad skin irritations (flea allergies among other things) and someone suggested this to me. I did it one day after I saw her skin was very red and itchy and within 30 mins of doing it her skin wasn't inflammed anymore. You can get the tea leave...

Re: Need some allergy help PLEASE!

Thanks! I'm going to check out the site right now. This poor guy has had one thing after the other. We rescued him a year ago and it's been a long road getting him up to par. He has this issue we are having now, flea allergies, chronic ear infections (vet says it may be from a hormone that causes hi...

Re: Need some allergy help PLEASE!

He gets the depo-medrol about every other month or two (his last one was at the end of March). I'm supposed to call the vet again tomorrow to try to see if he wants to get him on a regular sched (Even been looking into ordering it and giving the injections myself, was told it was an option w/ the ex...

Re: Ear/Skin Issues...need help!

He does currently have an ear infection, I've been cleaning it out and giving him drops 2x a day (drops the vet gave me for him) the drops just don't seem to be helping. I have been feeding him Retriever since I got him, I rescued him last Nov and he was all skin/bones w/ missing hair, he never show...

Re: Stunning Blue Fawn Girl Desperately Needs Home Can Trans

Is this girl still looking for a home? How is she with kids? And where is she located? My hubby and I have been talking about maybe adding another dog, and well, I'm in love! :)

The girl already has an 11 year old pit and a 15 yr old pit and is unable to keep this pretty little girl! She is a pit/lab mix with an estimated age of about 1 year. She is great wit...
