i am a strong advocate for fostering a dog. It's so hard to meet a dog for 15 minutes or see one online and just be like, "yep, that's the dog for me". fostering is a win/win. Either you foster and help find the dog a great home...or you fall in love and adopt yourself. I would suggest fi...

Kailie licks obsessively too. The floor, herself, us, whatever. I think it might be an OCD thing...Sorry, I am no help at all.

Kailie quit breathing the one time I used Advantage on her. I use Frontline in Yoda (he likes water), Advantage on the cat and ferrets when neccesary, and Natural Defense on Kailie. I only use it if I see creepy crawlies though, not on a monthly basis. I have only used it maybe four times in as many...

Sounds to me like your friend doesn't deserve the puppy.

I hope the pup pulls through and is okay.

Thank you for at least trying to help the pup.

Yeah, for squirrels, distemper is not possible, rabies is unlikely. The most likely things for a neurologic squirrel are Baylisascaris (they get this from raccoons), and being hit upside the head by a car. Your dog could only get baylisascaris from eating the squirrel, or eating raccoon poop. Yes, ...

Kailie will eat anything that meets the following criteria: -is edible -was edible at one time (ie ferret or cat poo) -might be edible (ie can I chew it?) Bonus points if it makes her feel full or offers any tiny amount of nutrition. She ate the router under my desk at work once. No more alone time ...

I read that squirrels could get canine distemper, but then my vet's office said no, it's species specific. But I do know that ferrets can get it, so I'm confused.... especially since they said that dogs can't get rabies from rodents except bats. At any rate, my hubby 'euthanized' him by trapping him...

Distemper?

We have a squirrel in the driveway that I'm fairly sure has distemper. My dogs get titers, but I didn't do them this year. Can I ever let them out again???? If I need to sterilize the area, how do I do it? Is it transmissable to people?

Topic: Daily food rotation ?? Good ?? Not Good ??
Replies: 5
Views: 515

I switch foods every single bag (which works out to be about every 2-3 weeks). I stick with the good brands (ie TW, NV, Canidae, etc) and due to Kailie's issues I stick with fish and fowl. Once the dog is accustomed to rotation, you *shouldn't* have digestive upsets. In the wild, canines don't eat t...

I had Kailie on a veggie food for exactly one bag. I needed to rid her body of animal proteins so that I could introduce them one at a time to determine what she was allergic to. It never occured to me to feed my mostly carnivorous pet a vegan diet long term. The only dogs I have ever seen that hone...
