Probiotics (Yogurt + supplements) Low/no carb diet or go BARF/RAW This is more common than you think, and less difficult to fix, than you'd imagine. Marie We did raw for two years and it never made a difference. :frown: When I got pregnant and we had to trim our spending, one of the first things we...

Skin yeast

Kailie has a yeast infection all over her entire body. It looks like nasty greyish brown dandruff and she smells awful. She was on an oral anti-fungal for 8 weeks, which helped significantly, but it isn't a long term solution. With 5 other animals and an infant, I just don't have the time to give he...

I thought my rottie/hound was special... His OCD is really bad! He is also a chronic light chaser. Our house is in the woods, so we don't have as much of an issue with car lights reflecting in the house, but when I take him to work.... The not so many faces of OCD: If I stare at the floor long enoug...

[quote="Trish"]Hey there :) Once thing they did teach us at the classes is that you should introduce your pup to a lot of different people and other dogs so he won't be scared when people come up to him. You should also let them pet him as much as they want so he knows its okay to be touch...

I must be a beast of an owner...My dogs food is switched cold turkey every bag with no rhyme or reason to what kind of food is next. Which equates to something totally different about every two weeks. I always feed high quality foods, and honestly I don't know if we've had an issue with runny poo. I...

I would also say to get the poor dog to the vet. And if they can't help, try another vet. Kailie's skin looked like that for 2 years and it wasn't until the third vet that we were able to help her! Her problem was diagnosed as food allergies at first and through elimination diets we concluded that s...

You can get anti icky poo at http://www.antiickypoo.com . Some vets sell it and a very few independent pet store carry it. The mold is really frustrating! When we bought the house, it had single pane storm windows that sweat really bad! We tore all those out and put in energy star double pane vinyl ...

For my husband and I, it's not just about the chemical hazards, but also about the environmental impact and the garbage we create by using a lot of disposable stuff (who needs dish soap wipes?! I've never had a problem with my scrubber that I run through the dishwasher every load...) and oodles of p...

Frankly, I think that people tend to get a little excessively worked up over a fairly trivial aspect of dog ownership. I personally don't have my dogs ears cropped. I don't see a reason to do it. Nor do I prefer the way it looks on a dog. I prefer the natural ears-especially on APBTs and Am Staffs. ...

For those of you who have several dogs and buy a lot of food, if you have the storage space, you may ask your local pet food store if they would be willing to make you a deal on a pallet if you pick it up the day of delivery. We have a customer with 3 mastiffs who was paying $40-50 a bag and buying ...

A good rule of thumb for pet food is that if you can buy it in a grocery store, it's crap. Even a lot of the foods at national chain pet stores are crap. Your best bet is to learn to read the labels and be choosy about your dog food. You'll spend less at the vet and have a healthier, longer lived do...

Where I live, most rescues have a stipulation in their adoption agreement that if you ever find yourself needing to rehome the dog, you must return the dog to them. Not to be rude or sound like I'm attacking you or your decision, but I am curious as to why you would adopt a working breed (especially...
