the couch beds they had at my costco were pretty small . . . they didn't seem big enough for my 50 pound and up dogs. Your dogs just need to curl into smaller pit balls. http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h121/RodentRanger/Dogs/Kailie2-1.jpg Kailie in a bed no more than 20" across. She sleeps i...

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...

Keep up the good work. It's probably going to be a long road with Issis, but I think there is hope for her if you are willing to help her overcome her issues. It took me over a year to get Kailie where she is today. We took it slow and I realized that I had been trying to push her too hard to fast a...

Growing up, my grandparents had a pit mix. They lived in the boonies and had a track around the house, so I was riding my bike on it. Tucker flew over the fence to run with me without a running start or touching the fence. It was only a 4 ft chainlink though. After he ripped off a neighbor's goat's ...

While I've done the alpha roll (farkin' dog bit my butt!), I also feel that it is ineffective on a lot of dogs. They know YOU aren't a dog, so why would you "speak" dog? I think there's much better ways to establish leadership with your dog. NILIF anyone?

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?

Views: 712

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...
