Re: My heart is breaking!

After 11 years I'm proud to say I gave my girl a good home and a great life. She is still fighting, but her days are numbered. She has a tumor on her spleen which ruptured the other day. She on pain meds now and I'm holding on for a couple more days, hopefully not selfishly. She's still eating, drin...

Not Eating in the AM

For the last week and a half my male is not eating much in the mornings. He eats a bit and then just walks off. He seems to be more interested in running around, playing and/or going back to bed. He is eating like a champ at night with no issues. He is acting totally normal and he is not losing any ...

It took me about six months and four different foods to find one he was not allergic too. Doh!

There is no change or anything to her, she looks and acts the same just stinky!

We feed Nature's Variety but she has been on it for over a year and this problem just started.

Stinky Dog

In the past month or two my female has become a stinky pooch. Her body has the regular dog smell, but it is extremely powerful. I've also noticed her tummy smells like a dirty/sweaty gym sock too. We've washed her multiple times, but the smell returns in a day or two. I talked to the vet and they to...

I work my male at night before and after dinner. We do probably two hours of fetch off and on, 30 minutes of spring pole and 30 minutes of flirt pole. Every three day we do light weight pulls and a lot of ball jumping. I have been slacking lately since life has been busy, but if you stick to a routi...

http://www.pbase.com/rgyoung777/image/66876079.jpg My dog has a bigger problem cutting up her hocks than the carpal pads on her front legs, but the neoprene leg wraps we got from Neopaws worked nicely for protecting both her front and back legs without hampering mobility. They've held up well to so...

Ripping Stopper Pads and Cracking Nails

My male is an insane character. He has the highest drive I have ever seen in a dog. He goes 100% all the time and he puts his body at risk daily. He is like the crazy skateboarder that comes home to his parents with new cuts, bruises and scars every day. We are constantly fighting with his stopper p...

Both dogs are at the vet :(

Just got a call from the wife that she had to take both dogs to the vet. They were playing and my male went to grab a toy out my females mouth and accidentally bit through her lip. She will probably need a stitch or two. Shortly after that my wife went to wipe off my male's paw since it was covered ...

My female has a grade 2 in her left read and a grade 3 in her right rear. My recommendation would be to get a second opinion. My last vet gave her a grade 3 and 4 and told us we needed surgery ASAP or she wouldn't be able to even walk a year or two down the road. After seeing another vet (our curren...
