Usually mucousy poop is caused by irritated intestines. Has this pup had normal poops yet? Is the pup normal in every other way? How's he eating? It may be from the deworming, that can be pretty hard on their systems. If you've got some plain yogurt, you might want to mix it into their formula/kibbl...

I know next to nothing about breeding, but I know that it would be crazy to deny ANY dog water, especially a nursing mother!!! Dog's bodies, like ours, are largely made up of water, and if you don't give her water she will dehydrate, get sick, and eventually die!!! Has your dog seen a vet during her...

If you put more meat than grain in a food the dog will lose weight regardless. That might explain why my dogs are LEAN. They are on a completely grain-free diet, as Gage is allergic to every grain I've tried (including oatmeal, flax, rye, and barley). Now that he's older, his allergies are much les...

Thanks for the attempt barbponys. I don't think she's brewing anything, as this has been going on for months, and as I've said, her poops are good. No signs of infection - no fever, appetite and energy are good. Everything's normal (as normal as Angel gets), except the rank gas, and really, that's b...

A gas question

I'm hoping barbpony's can answer this, but anyone can feel free to take a shot! Angel's butt stinks. I'm not talking little stinky dog fart (which is bad enough, any of my pitters can clear a room), I'm talking something BAD inside of her, it smells horrid. Her gas literally smells like rancid garba...

First, I LOVE your new avatar!!! Silly Cedric! I've never heard of dogs being allergic to sun, but my step-sister is, so if it's possible with people, it's probably possible with dogs. And, to clarify, it's not that she burns fast in the sun (she tans nicely actually), she just gets a rash, which ca...

In the past I've used revolution during flea season. I like it because it doesn't wear/wash off the way Advantage did (I used to use that), and it kills/prevents fleas, ticks, lice, and sarcoptic mites, and prevents heartworm, hookworm, and roundworms. My dogs have had no ill effects. This is the fi...

Sorry Alexandra, I missed your question. Pounds is the imperical measurement for weight, and Kilos is metric.

One kilo is 1000 grams, and one pound is 428 grams, so one Kilo is 2.3 lbs.

I feed raw, and aside from the meat and bone they get a wide variety of veggies, which is almost like a supplement in itself. They get everything from beansprouts, to turnips, to yams, to dailan (a chinese green veggie), even taro root. If it's edible, they get it. On top of that, they get plain yog...

Angel, at 4 months, 25lbs, at 2 1/2 years, 50lbs and lean. Gage, at 4 months, 36lbs, at 1 year, 55lbs (still needs to fill out, will probably end up 60-65lbs) Sugar, didn't have her at 4 months, so don't know her weight then, now, at 1 1/2 years, 35lbs and stocky (18" tall) - I don't think she'll gr...

I voted compulsion, only because you didn't have a choice of "both". I train my dogs mainly through positive methods (rewarding good behavior, and ignoring bad behavior), but I do give verbal corrections once they know the ground rules and commands. I'll also grab my dog by the collar (or scruff if ...

Hmmm...too bad it's not as simple as "the itch". I know this will sound weird, but I swear I read or heard something somewhere about smearing vaseline on the sensitive areas (belly, etc.) before going into known itch-inducers like grass - it protects the skin? I know when I was a kid and used to get...
