We brush every third day, plus good stuff to chew on every night to help out in between actual brushings.

C.J. was put on Proviable (Nutramax) when he was hospitalized last month. He's all better now but the vet recommended keeping him on it long-term, even after his antibiotics were done. I've been very pleased with the results so I do plan on keeping him on it. Definitely recommend buying it online. Amazon sells it for less than half of what it would be from the vet.

Food & Nutrition > How much salmon oil?

I have recently realized that the "dosing" instructions on bottles of salmon oil varries substantially from brand to brand. Anyone aware of a more concrete guideline for how much to give? C.J. weighs 90 pounds about two teaspoons (4 pumps) in his breakfast and two teaspoons in his dinner.

I tried a similar thread in the "Health" forum but didn't get many reponses. Maybe you'll have more luck here!

C.J. gets:
- Salmon oil twice daily, for all of the many benefits that come from Omega 3s
- Cosequin DS plus MSM twice daily, we're taking this as a preventative. He has no mobility issues right now, but C.J. is an agility dog and I want to make sure he can keep playing comfortably for as long as possible. On the advice of our vet, we're going to switch to Dasuquin when our current supply of Cosequin runs out.
- GNC Dog Digestive Health Complex - twice daily Digestive enzymes
- Proviable, once daily. C.J. has had some "digestive issues" in the past and our vet put him on this probiotic when he was hospitalized last month and recommended that he continue it long-term. I've been very happy with the results since he's been on it.

Food & Nutrition > Opionions on "best" grain free food for healthy older adults

I personally don't think there's one right food for every dog, but I've had C.J. rotating through the different ACANA (which uses russet potatoes and peas as the carb source - not sure where Foxxy is seeing tapioca) formulas for more than a year now and have been extremely happy with the results. It's definitely a rich food which can easily be overfed; at 90 lbs. and a fairly high activity level, C.J. only gets 2 cups per day to keep lean. I feel confident about the ingredient list, quality, and source of ingredients. It's pricey, but a 30# bag lasts us a good two months. Anyway, that's what we've found works best for us. They also just released a new formula (Ranchlands: beef, bison, and lamb as primary proteins) that we finally got a bag of yesterday and are eager to put into the rotation. Good luck! blue dog

The Petzlife oral care gel is definitely good. I put some of that and Petrodex enzymatic toothpaste on the brush together when I brush C.J.'s teeth 3x per week.

Sports & Agility > Tips for speeding up weave performance?

I was wondering if anyone has any training tips or tricks to help C.J. increase the speed of his weaves. He doesn't have a problem with entrances and he rarely pops out early, but we go from sailing through a course to almost a standstill going through the weaves. I know he's a big, long dog and weaving is definitely work for him, but getting through sets of 12 at trial is just killing our time. Sets of 6 are slow also. The thing is, I know he's CAPABLE of doing them fast. Every now and then he'll get the zoomies and just blast through them but that's very rare.

I've tried leading out in front, pushing from behind, approaching from both sides of the poles, throwing food to the end... Any advice is welcome; thanks!

Dog Health > General Prognosis for Heartworm?

C.J. had heartworm when I adopted him two years ago and had to be treated. We went the immiticide route along with some prednisone and doxycycline. It's a very involved, stressful treatment process but SO worth it in the end. Two years later he's in excellent condition, runs agility and keeps up with the best of them, and is not expected to have any other long-term issues.
