Re: Ugh hair loss

Well, he could have scraped it on something, or it could be a minor infection, but it's probably mange.

Re: Dog Coat Color Question

I'm fond of that site because it has spiffy illustrations. Capone looks to me as if his color is probably what is generally called "lilac" in pit bulls. He is liver, so bb, and appears to me to also be dilute, so dd. That would make him "lilac", but genetically, dilute liver. (Ja...

Re: Eva hip X-ray

Still gimpy. :( On exercise restriction, which she doesn't much like. Her owner was putting off taking her back in to the specialist to come up with a course of treatment, because she had health worries about her older pets, but I think she had an appointment today. Haven't heard the results, yet.

Re: Inverted Vulva

Conformation is conformation. If she's tucked way up in there, getting taller isn't going to do much. . Not really, growing isn't just about getting taller, a lot of body proportions change as an individual (of any species) matures. It's not at all uncommon for an adolescent pup to look out of prop...

Yes, you need to let her have a season. Sorry.

I'm pretty sure they don't make s/d anymore.


It's on the Hills website, so I would guess that they do. Still wouldn't feed it to a puppy, though.

Re: Urinalysis Results

SD isn't prescription. What IS Boss eating? Does he have access to water all the time? SD is prescription. It is a diet designed to dissolve struvite crystals. It is not designed for puppies. http://www.petfooddirect.com/product/8834/Hills-Prescription-Diet-s/d-Canine-Canned-Food" onclick="window.o...

Re: Urinalysis Results

He's way too young to be putting on something like the SD food. I would get a vet who runs the UA properly (right away, there is no reason not to do it in house, if you aren't culturing). If he's doing better now on the antibiotics, though, that may be sufficient treatment for him.

Re: What;s wrong with the grain free kibbles?

I haven't seen anyone advertising a grain free kibble as being equivalent to raw food. Grain free seems to be advertised as better than food that includes grain (which I'm not so sure about, though I do feed a grain free kibble). In general, though, any manufacturer is going to tell you that their p...

He'll lose those in the next month or so. The smaller teeth come out first.

I have to agree... that article is just anti-kibble, nothing specific to grain free.

Re: Petella Luxation

Yep, I'd get a 2nd opinion on that. Your dog might need surgery, or might not. If this is a "once in a while" thing, and the dog isn't acting painful, it's more likely that he doesn't need surgery. An orthopedic specialist could give you the best advice.

Re: Eva hip X-ray

Bicipital tenosynovitis. :( Poor Eva, it's a long, slow healing process. And her owner is threatening to not do agility with her any more, though I really think this has to be unrelated to the agility.

Re: Eva hip X-ray

She's about 21 months. I really wish they would find Lyme disease, it's easily treated, and would explain everything. I'm the one that pushed to test for that, because it fits the symptoms so well. But it's not too likely, unfortunately, since the disease isn't that common here, and there is no know...
