I would say as long as you are not a first time dog owner and have experience with the breeds, then the pup would be a great dog as long as you take it to training and socialize it. Good Luck. smile

A blood panel was done before the meds were prescribed with regular follow up blood panels. He's not due until next month, but I will take him earlier.

I don't know about videos but I use the "look at me" command then give them a treat game. It worked great with Koby and I'm working on it with Reina. Once they have that down, I make them sit and stay while I move around them saying "Look at me" and then I toss them a treat, which they love catching. It teaches focus. Its stops Reina in her tracks when she's nauty. She stops what she's doing, looks me in the eye and expects a treat. It works great. Maybe someone else can pop in with suggestions. Good luck!

Thanks guys. Koby can't use most NSAIDS, specifically Previcox. It was the first med prescribed and he got bloody diarrhea, so that's why he's on Tram adol. It's taken most of the edge off until recently, that's why the vet prescribed the Meloxicam. He always has some degree of pain, esp. if he's full of it and wants to play. We were trying it to see if he can tolerate the Metacam. It appears he can except for the not wanting to pee, so I guess a trip to the vet for some tests is what I will do. Yes, they did a blood panel which he's due for again. frown I do have him on the joint supplements you described.
As far as treats go, I read all the labels. Anything for dogs Chinese made scares me, since we lost one of our dogs to the infamous dog food recall. It was before they confirmed what was going on. If it's made is China or if the label is ambiguous, I don't buy it.
Toto, you live fairly close to me, do you know anywhere I can take him to swim? I can't find anywhere that's safe, doesn't cost a fortune or says "No dogs allowed". shrug

This Winter's been particularly hard on Koby. The snow was/is too high for him to get his regular exercise outside, so I've had him on the treadmill more than usual. The frozen ground is really hard on his hips. His vet prescribed him the pain med s Tram adol for everyday use and Meloxicam (Metacam) to use only for his really bad days, which seem to be often lately. Anything I've read says I shouldn't keep him on it for more than a few days at a time. It really helps him. He acts like a puppy again. I noticed he doesn't want to drink or pee when he's on it. I make sure I put a lot of water in his food so he gets plenty of fluids. But he still doesn't want to pee. Today he went only twice. Should I be worried? Any input would be really appreciated.

Unfortunately, some dogs are unconsolable. I have a friend with the same problem. They haven't found a solution either. Good luck!

Well, this Winter we got more than 7 feet of snow. I really couldn't walk him in that this year, esp. with his HD.

If none of that worked, maybe you could get some mild tranquilizers from the vet when you know a storm is coming. Maybe you could put his crate near a loud appliance like the dishwasher, clothes washer or dryer. Good Luck and I hope it works out. hughughughug

That's what I would have done. Dogs live in the moment. So, when you called him over and he followed you, you rewarded him for that, not the barking and lunging. Good Luck and please keep us posted. smile
