Belly bands are wee covers...like a cumberbund that covers their junk. Awesome things for males that pee! Yoda has also wet his bed at night. We ran him at a private dog park for 6 hours straight one day and he slept so hard that he peed himself and still didn't wake up. I was still up when he crash...

My concern with playing fetch on rough surfaces would be tearing up the pads of the feet. My dog tore off a huge chunk of the highest ("thumb") pad be coming to a screeching stop on asphalt (we were playing fetch in an asphalt tennis court at my mom's condo). Perhaps longwalks on pavement ...

Today was my last straw. He cried out when Kailie body slammed his back end. I still can't find anything obviously wrong with him, but I made an appointment for next Wednesday.

Should I be concerned?

I'm not normally the take-the-dog-to-the-vet-for-everything kind of person. Generally, I can handle most things myself, and when I can't or I'm not willing to risk it, they go in. Recently, one of our ferrets died of a nasty fast spreading cancer. One of the other ferts has a slow growing cancer as ...

Kailie is a pit cow as well. She prefers the grass that grows along the creek at the back of our yard and the grass that grows on our septic field across the street. Basically, long infrequently mowed field grass, not lawn grass. I do so look forward to the spring and summer and the grass cling-ons ...

Insider info: It's made by a guy who was in the beginning of Nature's Variety. He didn't want to use synthesized vitamins by was vetoed. So he split and made his own formula w/o synthetic vitamins-hence By Nature.

It's a great food and the guy is really nice (I met him in person)!

Oh yes, I have my own nutritional research lab in the back room, and a team of financial advisors on retainer, not to mention my big fat crystal ball, and some kick donkey tea leaves I read. (just had to make fun of myself for actually using the term "cost benefit analysis" in a dog food ...

What is the dog eating? Kailie had similar issues (cones, socks on her feet, vinyl toe nail caps, t-shirts the works!) Her biggest issue was an all over yeast infection, but certain protein sources make her worse. I spent thousands of dollars and over a year with vets trying to find out what her iss...

I can relate in part. Kailie has the same issues, though not as extreme as Toda (where in WA are you? Kailie is from SE WA). She doesn't get to lie in the grass and enjoy the sunshine. She can only eat poultry and fish. She's mostly bald on her tummy and only has sparse hair on the rest of her body....
