Re: My heart is breaking!

also, I just re-read this entire thread, and I felt like the Grinch, with my heart growing two sizes.
from shelter to a forever home and 11 years of love and family. Amazing things happen when the community gets together. <3

Re: My heart is breaking!

I'm so sorry.
11 years seems like a long time, and a blink of an eye all at the same time.
cherish whatever time you have left together, and take time to grieve. It's never easy to lose a family member.

Re: Padded bed suggestions for kennel : durable for chewer

I board a dog who destroys every bed/mat/etc that you put in his crate. He just gets a blanket or towel folded up to lay on now... but sometimes he'll shred that a bit. He doesn't eat what he destroys, so I don't really care too much when he puts a hole in a towel. He can lay on holey towels!

Re: Eye infection :(

not sure I'd want vinegar in my eye :/
If it's not too bad, you could try polysporin eye drops (NOT regular polysporin!), or get it looked at by a vet. Eyes are important, and the infection may need antibiotic drops.

could you hang a spring pole somewhere? (low enough that his feet stay on the ground)

Re: Post op. Acl surgery

that's the hardest part! keeping them still is hard once they start feeling a little better. I had leashes tethered to things all over the house, and used crates/xpens as much as I could too. Also had to hide all the balls in the house (my dog is very ball driven!) and had dining chairs stacked all ...

Re: Post op. Acl surgery

My dog has had 4 knee surgeries (yes, 4... don't ask.) I would highly HIGHLY recommend going for physio if there is any kind of canine physio clinic nearby. The exercises and range of motion stretches they'll show you are very helpful, and if they have an underwater treadmill, do it! That has helped...

Re: Pet Insurance

with my dogs latest surgery two weeks ago (to repair a smashed canine tooth, and remove another MCT), we officially tipped over the $30k mark with trupanion. That doesn't mean my dog has cost $30k, she has cost WAY more than that, with all the physio, consult fees, chiro, acupuncture, etc. that insu...

Re: The Cost of Feeding Raw?

i feed raw in vancouver canada, and meat is pretty pricey up here! even when chicken goes on sale for super "OMG must buy!" cheap, that's still $1/lb. however... i feed raw because i can't afford to feed kibble. the past couple years i've worked my butt off and networked with hunters. the ...

Re: Good quality orthopedic bed?

she slept on your bed even after surgery? I can see visions of myself sleeping in a sleeping bag in an xpen now. He's so not used to isolation. with her first surgery, i spent the first couple weeks on the floor with her, on a camping foamy and layered quilts. for her second, third and fourth surge...

Re: Good quality orthopedic bed?

i thought about an orthopedic bed for my dog (because she's about as broken as they come)... but then i realized that she sleeps on my bed at night, and the couch during the day.
i scrapped the idea, and used the money to buy her extra physio swimming :)
