I've known a lot of dogs who vomit in the wee hours from having an empty tummy. Can you try feeding at 7:30 am, a snack at say 2 or 3, dinner at about 8pm, then another snack at 11 pm, or right before you go to bed? Split the lunch serving between two snacks basically. My girl hurls if she goes with...

The only reason I can think of a dog becoming HA or DA from gunpowder is because he is wretchedly sick all the damn time!
I also agree with you that the dog was likely also being mistreated in other ways as well, not just nutritionally.

We compost and recycle, so there in't much tasty smelling stuuf in our trash. That helped a lot. We got the step lid cans for the bathoom and kichen, and one of those motion activated cans for diapers (turn of fthe lid and baby and dog can't get in it.) There is also moue-trap thinggies that just ha...

I personally don't believe dogs don't sweat.
You ever let your dog run around a lot, then hang out in a small room with them? They have to sweat.

I have basket muzzle for each of my dogs and they both tolerate it. I think that it is my responsibility to make sure that they can and will tolerate anything that may be required at some point in their lives. Kailie was muzzled at the last vet we went to (which is why we don't go there anymore), so...

I keep my dogs separated when we aren't home, but so far between *my* dogs, I have not had any problems with aggression. As Kailie transitions into adulthood and genuine maturity, she is becoming less tolerant of other dogs. So far, her issues have only been with other females. I had been sitting a ...

I think it has a lot to do with your vet and your trust in them. My dogs' last vet was great with my hound, but afraid of Kailie. They would bring me a muzzle and have me put it on her so they could take her in the back and have God knows how many people restrain her to do *anything* to her. I could...

Asthma?

I did a search and couldn't find anything particularly helpful...I even Googled. When Yoda runs, he whistles. He rarely reverse sneezes, and he doesn't have kennel cough. He just chirps/whistles when he runs. It's pretty loud too. It's not too difficult to hear over the dogs running and dinosauring....

Yoda is a resident, he is a rottie/hound. Kailie is the APBT. There will be no more guest dogs. This one yesterday was going to be a guest as part of a barter deal that will now be worked out in other ways. I do realize that each fight has the potential to increase her DA, and I am well aware of the...

Please reassure me...

Kailie is about 3 years old. I adopted her when she was about 10 months old, and she went to work with me at a dog daycare every day for the first 8 months I had her. After that, she went to work with me to a pet food store 1-2 times a week, where she got along with the other staff dogs. The only ti...
