Re: Weak/down pasterns Carpal Subluxation Syndrome

how much time does he actually spend in his crate? how much exersize does he get, and what kind? it looks to me (and i may be wrong) that he spends a lot of time in his crate. i notice in one of the photos that he is missing quite a lot of hair on his tail, which could be from laying in the crate. m...

Re: zeke ate my couch!

yep, either a crate or give him his own room with nothing in it he could rip up or swallow. all my dogs are crated when i am gone, or if it is warm weather, they can go outside on their tethers. just yesterday, i left one dog in the house while i was outside for less than ten minutes, and she ripped...

Re: Question about medication dosage

i would email/call the company that makes it. it does seem strange, if the active ingredient is the same percentage.

Re: Question About Foods

i too would stick with what works for your dog. i can not afford the very best food for my guys, but they eat decent (not grocery) food. dogs have been eating a lot of different things since the dawn of time, from scraps around human settlements, to kibbled and bagged feed and done quite well. most ...

Re: My baby is pregnant..need advise!!! and tips

i thought it was a young dog because the op said it was her first time, i guess i thought he meant her first time in heat. probably means her first time pregnant. either way, the female should be spayed. if he does not even know what to feed a pregnant dog, maybe it would be for the best. that way t...

Re: Dog food for blue pit

maybe take her to a vet to be sure she does not have mites. if she does you will need to treat it. i would steer clear of any kibbles with corn or soy or beef, but that is just me, others may have more ideas. as far as bulking her up, genetics play a HUE rrole in an animal's size as an adult, as do ...

Re: My baby is pregnant..need advise!!! and tips

it sounds like she got bred on her first heat. not good for her at all. as said already, just take her in and have her spayed, it may SAVE HER LIFE.

Re: hyper new pup - very mouthy - Please Help

i am having a hard time wrapping my head around her being "hung from the neck and left outside." i tend to think if she had a rope around her neck and was "hung" by it, she would have choked to death in a very short time. i suspect the irritation around her neck may have been fro...

Re: Driving Cross Country Through Denver??

i would drive far, far around that city. they could very well see your dog, take it and put it down. there is a permit (24hours) you can get to have your pit bull in the city, but i think it can only be obtained if you are going to a show or weight pull (i could be wrong here) but if you were to be ...

Re: How to deal with a constant barker

maybe try really, really tiring her out before kenneling her (running, fetching, whatever she likes to do), and give her a big bone to chew on in the crate/kennel.

Re: Gypsie Rose has a funky eye today...

the first pic looks like she maybe scratched her eye and irritated the third lid. the second one looks similar to a foster dog i had a few years ago that had cherry eye. did it get better on it's own or did you end up taking her in to have it looked at?
