  1. Past hour
  2. Dental - to pull or not to pull

    Ok thanks. He doesn’t seem to be in pain and I can’t see any redness or swelling. I’m just paranoid then.
  3. Today
  4. Dental - to pull or not to pull

    Hard to tell just from that Infection is more likely to produce pain, swelling, redness, smell,yucky discharge...dog not feeling 100%. More saliva can be produced if there's a delicious scent around, or if dog is a bit warmer than usual....
  5. Dental - to pull or not to pull

    Sorry may seem like a silly question. I know of dogs (bigger ones) where the water bowl is full of saliva. But my two never have this problem in their water bowls. So got a bit worried whether there was an infection or something
  6. What are they rolling in?

    +1 for my eldest boy! Only on grass. He is smart enough to not do on concrete or hard floors.
  7. Rain Anxiety

    I hope it helps. Once you know if it has a positive effect, you could ook at getting a trainer in to help you with desensitisation and counter conditioning to try and reduce or eliminate your girl's reaction to rain.
  8. What are they scratching at?

    Molly does this too. In her bed, on the lounge and even just on plain carpet. She scratches around, messes up the spot, does the 360 turn, then sits down for a 2 minutes and then she gets up and comes and sits with me.
  9. RSPCA in the news

    interesting statistics https://www.michaelwest.com.au/nsw-doggy-death-row/?fbclid=IwAR3OcrdEWp0bh2sTSp0NjaCsRNU7kiUh8Wspqv00lRMBsWkNoG-Tms7Ux8Q
  10. Rain Anxiety

    The vet has give me xanax to try next time it rains..
  11. What are they rolling in?

    With my three dogs, the only one who does it a lot is the female. The others just seem to do it when they want to scratch their back & it is never in physically dirty stuff, but maybe where something has peed. My theory is that in nature, it is the female who finds the food for the pups, so she rolls in the poo of the species that she would normally be hunting in the wild, mainly kangaroo or cow poo. She does this to camouflage her own scent to enable her to creep up on her prey. Just my theory...no scientific evidence to back it up LOL. I just know that when we take her for a walk around the farm, she has to stay on lead.
  12. autoimmune-hemolytic-anemia

    Yes I agree. Last night his blood count was up to 30
  13. Yesterday
  14. Dental - to pull or not to pull

    I wouldn't worry...that's pretty normal
  15. What are they scratching at?

    Instinct rules!!
  16. What are they scratching at?

    And all this time I thought they were logical!
  17. What are they rolling in?

    Because the birds living along the river where we are often leave carcasses lying around, or fishermen throw away the carp which are not allowed to be returned to the water
  18. What are they scratching at?

    Lol.. I get that but I think it's a more instinctual behaviour than a logical one.
  19. What are they scratching at?

    On a bed that makes sense, but on a portable carpet??? It’s flat, it doesn’t get any flatter.
  20. Dental - to pull or not to pull

    it’s almost been two weeks since my boy had a bunch of teeth removed. Stitches not completely desolved, but he has finished all his antibiotics about a week ago. I noticed today in his water bowl, after he drinks water the water looks like it has saliva in it. Is this something I need to be concerned with? he hasn’t been complaining about pain and is going about his activities like business as usual. No loss in appetite even on the day of surgery.
  21. What are they scratching at?

    I've always assumed it's a type of nesting behaviour, trying to make their sleeping spot more comfy, even if it sometimes has the opposite effect.. lol.
  22. Which store allow dogs?

    Omg. Isn’t this just common pet etiquette... actually common etiquette in general! it true now you mention it. I often see people walking their pets without a doggy poo bag or don’t clean up after their dogs. its so common in Europe to see dogs in shops (particularly in Paris). But then again I see poo everywhere on the streets and it seems no one cares!
  23. What are they rolling in?

    Brings back horrible memories!The sloppiest cow dug available used to be a rinse and repeat treat. Its also made me realise.... NONE of my dogs have done this that I can recall for the last 30 years!?!
  24. autoimmune-hemolytic-anemia

    I would also be sure to look at Titer testing instead of vaccination in the future & be very mindful of any flea/tick meds being used
  25. What are they rolling in?

    Why are there dead fish readily available to roll in?
  26. What are they rolling in?

    Pudden rolls in all sorts...dead fish are a favourite.
  27. I’m sure every dog does it. They find a spot and then starts scratching at it. And they persist at the same spot. There is nothing under the spot they are scratching at, but they just do it and it drives me crazy! Usually it’s on carpet or on their bed. After they are satisfy with their scratching, they do a 360 turn and then sits on top of the spot. What are they doing?
