Many shelters and rescues will do pediatric spay/neuters. If you have a young, intact animal, should you do them that young? Possibly not. But it makes a lot of sense on the grand scale, when looking at the huge problems facing domestic companion animals in relation to overpopulation/homelessness.

Ugh! I screwed up the poll. I'm the one that answered > $140. I was thinking monthly, not weekly. I get paid once per month, so I buy the full month's pet food at once. I spend around $140 for my three cats' food (they get canned food only, rotation of EVO and California Natural). For the dogs, a 35...

I don't know anything to do. I just had to say that what strikes me is that there is ABSOLUTELY no shortage of morons out there. I read several of the complaint pages. These people are honestly surprised that this happened?!?!?!?

You are using logic/research instead of experience. Something that I was accused of doing just a few posts ago. Did you know the word 'Hippocrate' isn't in the dictionary? Uhm, we're HUMANS. That's one of the few good things about being a human, the ability to use logic/reason over having to experi...

Unfortunately, many of the lower quality, cheaper foods are coated with an "animal digest" (i.e. blend of fats, or even restaurant grease) that makes it VERY yummy to dogs without improving nutrition at all. Think about trying to convince a three year old human that broccoli is better than...

But then condescention is answered with condescention. People here are not "afraid" of dog parks. Many of them have analyzed the environment provided by most dog parks and found to be unsuitable for all or at least many dogs, most especially a breed known to have dog-aggressive tendencies ...

Hello Jay. You've come to the right place if you want to learn. What do you do with your dogs? Agility? Confirmation? Any time of showing or performance? Have your dogs been health tested? Because of the challenges facing Pit Bulls, most here support breeding only when it is handled with the utmost ...

I had similar problems with Abbie Lou, which (after one of the longest months or so of my life!) ended up being attributed to a rice allergy. I went round and round with my vet on the Z/D. I REALLY, REALLY don't like Hill's. We ended up compromising, and I started Abbie Lou on a limited ingredient c...

It's EASY to love them, easy to want them. It's HARD to make the right, intellectual decision about whether a dog is the right fit for your family. I respect that. Fingers crossed that the right home comes along for her. I know you'll find your right dog.

Welcome! Hope you get all the answers you need. Lucky girl to have found you! Many around here will tell you to "never trust a pit bull not to fight," meaning that they keep their dogs separated when they are not under direct supervision. I do this with my dogs (two muttly wonders, one of ...

All I know is she has GREAT springy, asymmetrical ears, which is something I regard highly in all dogs. :thumbsup:

I'm a know-nothing, but wish you and this cutie pie the best, whether she's yours or not.
