Senior Citizen Food Recomendations?

Old Man Boo (formerly known as Bosco) needs some food recommendations. He is devouring his last bag of Wellness Senior, which is being discontinued apparently. Special Considerations: 1. Old Man Boo has frequent bouts with pancreatitis, so he requires a low fat and not ridiculously high protein diet...

Re: Outdoor water containers

Have you tried iodine? Thats what I take when I go hiking if I have to resort to stream water...I know it makes water safe to drink, not sure what effect it'd have on algae though.

Sorry for the double post but I wanted to add that assuming you DO know your dog well, I think it's a fine line between being cautious and CAUSING a problem. With Toby, for example, the first few months I had him I wouldn't let him greet ANY dogs. After a while he started being reactive on SIGHT to ...

We get that a lot too. Toby is *usually* good with females, so I ask whether the dog is male or female. If it's male, I tell them he doesn't really like other males, and if it's female I'll let him sniff noses and than we move on after a few seconds (Toby's reactions are usually after sniffing noses...

Exercise and routine have been my ADD dog's saving grace. (While we are on the topic, I don't know if dogs CAN have ADD, but I am positive my dog has it too. lol) My boy is VERY (very) easily over stimulated and like yours, has a hard time breaking his focus (usually related to prey...a bag blowing ...

Mine does the play nipping thing too, only he does it because he is very easily over stimulated and never recieved any training (whatsoever) as a pup or young adult, so from what I gather he never learned bite inhibition. I'm sure I exacerbate the problem by rough housing with him but I can't help i...

i was just told by one of the guys i train with that when i'm doing work with my dog, i have a bad habit of freeing the dog up and letting him immediately go off and sniff or do whatever he wants to do. to build the dog's habit of keeping attention on me, when i break my dog off his command now, he...

Re: Gaining Attention on Walks - When to Treat?

IN the house he's a completely different dog...I can't get him to leave me ALONE is the problem inside. lol He's FINALLY figured out that "sit" still means "sit" outside...in the house, no problem. He knows lots of commands in the house and is generally an easy-to-train dog...it'...

Gaining Attention on Walks - When to Treat?

So I got a little lazy with training on walks...instead of *training* on a flat collar I resorted to a sporn harness (which really is a miracle gadget). But of course, like most "training" tools once removed, the pulling is back. In Toby's case, he's a light/mild puller, but when he is exc...

Aaaaaahhhhhhh!!! Toby needs a baby sister really badly, but mommy doesn't have puppy time. :frown:

(Then there's the whole landlords picking and choosing who can have more than one dog thing. Some people have 3+...one gal fosters...but they told me there's a one dog limit. WTF.)

I think I might have gotten back in my car, backed up and pulled in closer to her car. :twisted: My thoughts exactly. I've been known to park as close as possible to people who are parked right on the line, just to make a point. Of course that puts my car at risk for getting dented all to hell when...

Oooo the cotton balls are a good idea. We will definitely have to try that. He doesn't have icky ears, but they still get a little gunky now and again. I didn't really think about it until a few months after I had him, he had to go to the e-vets for his exploding behind and they noted in his report ...

Maybe the liquid is cold and uncomfortable? That's true...although on the same token, I've never heard of someone having to warm up dog ear cleaner before applying it. lol (And I'm not sure if heat would destroy the cleaner itself? Like how some medications are destroyed by sunlight/heat/etc.) But ...
