  1. Be careful with honey as it "can" take the breath away. The best way to give honey is to buy the honey in the squirty pump packs and write 'dog' on it, they way you wont get it mixed up with your honey and get slobber on your toast. With the dog laying on it's side, lift the flew and pour the honey in the side of the mouth on the top gums, this way it wont take your dogs breath away. For kennel cough, the "usually" need OAB's and soft foods (even soaking the biscuits in some cases). Benadryl (cough mixture) can be brought over the counter at most good chemists and pharmacies, it's "usually" what the vets prescribe inconjunction with OAB's anyway. Good Luck, Elise
  2. Put boracic acid powder in the ears. It absorbs the water.

  6. The "main" cause for hot spots is fleas. Another cause for hot spots is when the dog is wet (not being dried properly after a bath). We find Mylanta works well on hot spots, it dries them out pretty quick. If you've got the diet sorted out and you're bathing her in medicated shampoo another couple of possibilities to look at could be:- * thyroid * hormones (is she coming into season) * some dogs have an allergy to a certain bush/tree/plant/grass in the yard. This can make them itch and scratch and lead to a hot spot. * over-washing can irritate the skin Apart from the OAB's, did your vet prescribe a very low dose of steroid? Good Luck, Elise
  7. Did the vet look at her throat by any chance? I had a dog a couple of years back and she had this "funny" cough and she was hungry but couldnt' eat, poor thing had tonsilitis.
  8. My dogs prefer certain flavours over others (of Supercoat). We have that many different coloured bags going at once at the moment, it's not funny.
  9. So very sorry for your loss, Poodle girl........seems it's a rotten month for DOL'ers to have their hearts broken. Thinking of you, Elise
