  1. Stage 3 Renal Failure

    I keep coming back to these words what greater tribute can a dog have
  2. Long Term Boarding Help!

    I think $1700 for 4 months boarding is a very good price. As long as they are not cutting corners and can deal with a Mal. Juice I think the OP means in 4 months time they will be in a position to have the dog with them but not currently.
  3. Stage 3 Renal Failure

    Time to say goodbye I think.
  4. Thrifty eaters

    My crossbreed heinze 57 variety ran on the smell of an oily rag.
  5. Most Mumma dogs are happy to see the back of the little sh!ts I would advise not letting her off lead at all if you see dogs that may cause your dog to react in such a way. It is very rude behaviour and she will meet a dog who will not like it and react. She will also meet the dog that will get a big fright and be ruined by your dog. If she had a litter in May then they should have all been together for 6 - 8 weeks. Then it should have been another 2 months before she was desexed. I'm guessing you have not actually had her very long at all, if so, then yes her recall would not be 100% reliable yet. I'd be working on her recall and her general manners and not be waiting for her to flip other dogs over. If it looks like "That" type of dog is about to enter then you need to be proactive and leash her first. And you can't let her do it to some dogs, because they owners are ok with it, but not others. That's only confusing for her
  6. Couple of quick questions

    use a clip to attach the handle to a bar, makes it a lot harder to flip them. FWIW my first greyhound had tapes show up and he had been wormed 3 times! ( with an all wormer that covered tapes) forget what got rid of them but I did have to consult a vet.
  7. Older Boston Terrier wanted

    get in contact with breeders, not everyone advertises when they have an older dog available. Find one they are comfortable with and build a relationship and take it from there.
  8. Accidentally express bladder?

    I think the answer to your question is yes. You did say rather vigorous.
  9. Supplements for hips/bones

    I'm giving hemp oil capsules to 2 of my dogs, one for allergy reactions and the other because she dislocated her hip as a pup, she is nearly 2 now. I like them because they are a balance of omega 3, 6 and 9. I am also giving two of mine, the youngest with the iffy hip and the oldest, glucosamine and chondroitin powder in capsules. You buy these over the internet fairly easily. There are also natural pain relief meds you can give. If I recall rightly willow bark is one such item. Goggle would help you. Keep in mind your dog is maturing so what you think might be slowing down because of pain, might just be your dog finally growing up. Though you can see her and we can't. Needless to say keeping her lean will help.
  10. How did the kelpie get its name?

    what I have always been led to believe as well. A top notch working bitch called Kelpie. Her pups were often called Kelpie's pups which became Kelpie
  11. travel sickness

    how old is he? I've had one carsick dog ( as in throw up), and several queasy types. I found all improved as they got older. I also didn't feed before any planned trips. All mine loved the car as well.
  12. Decent inexpensive dog food brands?

    I feed supercoat/optimum/natures gift - all supermarket brand foods which I buy when on special. My dogs are fine. I don't go as low as woofbix or chum.
  13. Dog got small cut on eyelid

    If you are unsure then possibly best to take your dog to the vet. It may appear that there is no damage to the eye when there actually is. If you are confident the eye is fine then what you are doing is most likely ok.
