Thanks so much for the advice, Firefly. Sorry, Osvaldo and Nasir, I am in Mexico and cannot get the product you suggested, but I will see if a friend can bring it down for me. You're a great group of folks!snoopy

You shouldn't get an English Springer Spaniel if:
- You can't laugh at yourself or your dog
- You consider a leashed walk exercise
- You don't like brushing your dog every day
- You aren't prepared to say 'no' to extra snacks during the day
- You freak out if you get splashed as the dog does belly flops in your pool
- You need to be fashionable at all times
- You haven't got an upper shelf big enough to hold your Thanksgiving turkey before serving
- You plan to keep your couch free of dog hair
- You can't stand playing fetch for half an hour EVERY day after work
- You can't resist those soft eyes when you're eating your dinner
- You haven't got enough room on your bed for three ... or four, or five.

Hi everyone! This time of year in Mexico is flea season. Although Mama put Advantix on me last month, I developed a really bad case of flea-bites. There were thousands of them! The vet gave me a bath and left the medicinal solution on my coat until it dried. It made me feel so much better! However, the red welts are still there, all over my speckled tummy and in my groin and elbows. They still bother me a lot. Have any of you heard of a home remedy which would just make me feel more comfortable until the welts subside? blue dog

Is it possible to get wings for my beloved Simba who passed away last Wednesday at the age of 14?

Sounds an awful lot like a petit mal seizure to me, since it's happening when he has been asleep. If it were exercise induced, it would happen during or after a period of intense exercise. If it is a seizure, he must be treated by a vet, and please don't waste any time doing it. The seizures could be come more severe if you wait. If it's not seizures, you will at least know how to proceed. Your buddy is worth it. Good luck.

Dog Health > Licking, Gulping, Panting at Night -- Solved

Thanks so much for both your stories. When Simba developed epilepsy due to a scorpion bite in February, the vet suggested changing his diet to the BARF diet. I compromised with the vet and put him on a home cooked diet, but I'm worried that he isn't getting enough vitamins and minerals. He also loves fish, so I'm hoping somebody can give me a 'recipe' for a tuna meal (how much tuna in relation to the amount of grains and veggies, if applicable). And what extra vitamins & minerals should I provide? Right now, he's only getting chicken/beef/pork/ocean fish and rice. Seems as if it's too limited for a 70 lb. dog, but the vet would rather I just throw him a raw chicken leg for dinner!!! Can anyone help me out?

By the way, his obsessive licking/panting in the evenings has stopped since he's been eating his cooked diet too!

Choosing the Right Dog > Just for Fun Thread! What Breed are you obsessed with currently?

Because I live in Mexico and met a beautiful big Xoloitzcuintli at a spay-neuter clinic where I volunteer, I have become obsessed with her. She's ugly enough to be cute (something like the SharPei and English Bulldog in that sense), and has such a gentle personality. However, I am in my mid-sixties and know I couldn't lift a Xoloitzcuintli if she got sick (like I'm doing with my 14-yr-old Standard Poodle now), so I always revert back to the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, a breed I showed back in the 80s and 90s. Quite a difference between the breeds, but if I had a dozen servants to care for the dog, I'd go for a big one. Since I don't, a smaller breed is on my horizon, I think.little angel

Simba does the same thing just before bedtime. It's definitely the "nesting instinct" with him ... and it seems to be an older dog trait too. Nothing to worry about, for sure.

While I was showing my setters, I was told about a product which stopped them from sliding on the show ring mats. It's called Tacky Finger or SortKwik and is used by bankers, accountants, etc. to count money. It works like a dream! You just rub the 'wax' on the dog's paws, wait about five minutes, and he/she is good for the day! Who'd a-thunk? I'd buy the biggest container for a large dog like yours. It's worked a charm for my senior Standard Poodle on our tile floors. Here's a link to show you what it looks like. You can buy it at any stationery store. http://www.gwjcompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_ id=1098
