Re: Belly Bands?

I use them for my Chihuahua if we go anywhere new because he's a horrible marker. When he wears one, he doesn't go in it. I would be uncomfortable using it as a diaper for a dog who is unable to hold it. You'd have to line it with a pad but I'd still be worried about urine burns unless you were able...

Re: Whats the best way to slow down a puppys eating?

I just put my fast eater in a bathroom and chuck the food on the floor. It rolls everywhere and he has to find it. Can't eat fast that way.

Re: HELP ON POTTY TRAINING! (i think she just likes to pee!

Worming her doesn't necessarily make her worm free. How many fecals have you had run? A negative fecal also doesn't mean she's worm free but it's a bit more likely.

Re: HELP ON POTTY TRAINING! (i think she just likes to pee!

Bring a sample of her urine, that is less than 1 hour old, to your vet. Something is likely medically wrong with her.

Re: Schutzhund and Bite Work ~ your thoughts

The bitesport part is tricky. I know there are tons of people that do poor bitesport work and I wouldn't go near their dog but I would probably not pick an insurance company that faulted us for participating in bite work. I do think this quote from this thread shows that for whatever reason, you th...

Re: A Hell of a Week for Cats

You could put the cats on canned food instead of raw so you wouldn't have to worry about freezer space.

What testing did the vet clinic do that your boyfriend thought was odd and was expensive?

Re: Schutzhund and Bite Work ~ your thoughts

Well, many people with actual experience in the sport have said that while the word schutzhund might technically mean protection, the actual goal of the sport is not to have a dog who can work in an actual protection capacity outside of the sporting ring and the vast majority of them never would bit...

I have to admit, I don't see the merit in starting a thread where you state your opinion and then refute every other one that is different without any attempt to learn anything.

Re: Just looking for a few pointers for my new adopted

She probably has kennel cough so you'll need to treat her for that. You might see her equilibrium improve once she is over the kennel cough. At a year or younger she really is still a puppy which will account for a lot of the silliness.

Re: Dog-but-not-Cat Repellants

All of our litter boxes are behind baby gates. It was the only thing that kept the dogs out of them. It works for us although I have found myself stepping over invisible baby gates at other people's houses.

Re: Cat with open sores on face - graphic photos

A 15 year old house cat is extremely unlikely to have FeLV or FIV and if they've spent $1000 on tests, I am sure that was one of them. It's fairly routine and very cheap.

Re: Cat with open sores on face - graphic photos

I would not assume those sores don't hurt just because she is not avoiding rubbing her face on things. Cats rarely show that they are hurting. I had a foster cat who had a claw growing all the way through her paw and she didn't even limp. I bet those are painful. She may be 15, but if she's pretty h...

Re: Gastroparesis: stomach emptying problem

Well, that makes more sense. 10 isn't that old though. Unless your vet recommends against it or there is a cost issue, I would seriously consider going further with procedures.

Re: Gastroparesis: stomach emptying problem

He's been dealing with this since he was 1 but you don't want to do further testing because of his age?
