Dog Health > How do you feel about toys and treats made in China...?

I refuse to buy anything edible made in China.

My guys aren't big on toys so that isn't a dilemma thankfully.

Seamus had emergency surgery for GDV on Nov 8th. Thankfully I got him to the emergency vet clinic quickly enough so that there were no complications such as spleen removal or necrosis. Staples came out on Monday and he's back to his own goofy self.

Dog Health > Experiences with bloat?

I had to take my Irish Setter boy Seamus to the emergency vet clinic for bloat today. Thankfully I was home when he started to show the classic GDV symptoms and rushed him to the hospital where he is now recovering from surgery and having the gastropexy. I'm still in a bit of shock over how I could have lost him (as well as sticker shock).

What are your experiences with this life threatening condition?

What can I expect going forward? He'll be 4 in January but the emerg vet tech that he should still live a long life after this.

Has anyone's dog ever experience bloat a second time after a gastropexy? This to me is my major worry.

Raw Food Diet > Best RMBs for teeth?

Too bad about the red meat because beef neck bones are great. Kelly and Seamus get those and chicken parts and their teeth are pearly white except for one spot, the front of their upper canines along the gumline and it's driving me nuts.

I should think chicken/turkey backs, necks would be good for teeth. If you want more meat then drumsticks or thighs are a great meal as well as a way to clean teeth.

Raw Food Diet > this is why you shouldn't believe everything you read by vets

I was in the bookstore this afternoon and was thumbing through a new release "Through a Dog's Eyes" by Jennifer Arnold who is Executive Director of Canine Assistants, a school where dogs are taught to help children and adults who have physical disabilities, epilepsy, and other special needs. She was quite disdainful of "so-called" raw and barf diets which she termed fads and recommended kibble.

Her contention was that the additives and preservatives that go into kibble are rigorously tested by pet food companies for harmful side-effects. This is true but just because something is edible doesn't mean it's actually good for you.

Is kibble good enough? For the most part, yes. But is it GOOD? This is where I have a problem with kibble so I feed raw.

shock

That looks like an open wound or an ulcer.

I'd be inclined to take her to the vet, have her fixed up and then hand her over to a shih tzu rescue.

Raw Food Diet > what was your best and worst price?

Kelly

Best was $1/lb frozen turkey and $2/lb eye of round roast.

The worst was pork livers, hearts because Kelly wouldn't touch them.

Kelly's been home since Tuesday afternoon and the difference in how she feels between Sunday morning and home is like night and day. She too has to eat Medi-Cal low fat gastro kibble and she does not like it at all. She ate it the first couple of days but now I have to mix in little pieces of chicken before she'll even touch it and then she'll pick out the chicken first and leave kibble in the bowl. shrug
