Daphne had demodex ... the ivermectin was horrible tasting stuff, but I used a bottle of those empty gel capsules...like what your vitamins would come in and filled them with her daily dose of ivermectin....I think it took about 6 capsules. She gobbled those up in some turkey before dinner and it ne...

I thought it said owner surrender's could not list their dogs - it is my understanding this original request is the owner's son is trying to find safe place for his dog. I understand the need for rules, but if the owner's are not willing to try all the options out there, are we to really be turning ...

I feed it to my two dogs, the original (with the grains) and they love it. I switch it off with the trout once in awhile. I think they look great, shiny coats and all...my favorite part is not going to the store to get food, delivery is the best.

Try Cascade Kennels - not sure where they are in Washington, but they housed some Katrina pits for several months for Pasado's ... might get pricey for you, but hey, whatever it takes. I know it's not a home, but it was a very nice refuge for the pit bulls when they were there.

Doggie DNA Reveals Mutt's Identity

Very interesting story....wasn't sure if it belonged here or in Press, but since it's not a story about pit bulls (yet - can you just imagine if insurance co's start requiring "mixes" to get tested so they can discriminate)....but I really wonder if this can work. http://abcnews.go.com/GMA...

More on the Costco poisoned dry dog food ... I'm very disappointed in Costco for not being more proactive, given the thousands of dead and sick pets that have already happened. Seriously, who do you trust anymore. But good for this vet who stuck to his guns to find out if it was the food: Two of the...

Hi Kate - and double welcome, glad you found it here. Just a heads up, you only get to post one intro and then wait until the mods get around to granting you access to the rest of the forum. Once they do, you'll need to repost your intro for the dog on the Rescue section. Such a sad story, I wish we...

One thought is donating to United Animal Nation's PMU Rescue - they are one of the spearheading groups trying to save the premarin victims (mares and their babies). You can find more about PMU at their website, www.uan.org - they are reputable.

Awesome request from your family!

I tried searching for groups that provide veterinary care for homeless and their pets (we do here in Sacramento sponsored by UC Davis) but Dallas is apparently not doing anything like that. But I did find these - try them all, they might have suggestions for you. Try contacting this group - they hav...

This story in USA Today is one of the first ones that really explained in layman's terms why the cats seemed to get so much sicker than the dogs....I have cats, but never really knew about their propensity for kidney issues. Lucky I guess...but why, why in the world, is tainted food still being sold...
