Dog Health > Sick dog : /

Barked: Mon Jun 15, '15 5:52am PST 
I woke up on Saturday to Rocko (5 years old) apparently having thrown up (white liquid) and having an accident- feces semi-solid, kind of like melting ice cream..shrug

Sunday went fine, no accidents or vomiting.
But now this morning, another diarrhea accident, like he had on Saturday.

He ate all his food on Saturday and Sunday and drank water normally.

My other dog, who eats the same kibble, is just fine.

Food & Nutrition > How to determine what ingredient is causing food allergy???

Barked: Tue May 12, '15 11:51am PST 
My mini-schnauzer mix has had her white paws, belly, and mouth all turn rust colored. She licks her paws constantly, and scratches both sides of her face on the grass when she goes outside.
Not to mention, the yeast infection on her belly that caused her to smell like mold frown

At my wit's end I brought her to the vet, who gave me a Chlorhexidine foam for the yeast infection, and some type of pill for her as well (can't remember the name?).
It only helped a little. She is still rusty and licks her paws, & scratches her face on the couch and grass.

I've already tried bags of these with no improvement-
Nutro Natural:
Chicken, Brown Rice, Oatmeal
Venison and Brown Rice

Nutro Ultra:

Purina One:
Chicken & Rice

Grooming > HORRIBLE Musty smell?


Barked: Thu Mar 6, '14 7:39am PST 
I have a small 1 1/2 year old schnauzer mix. Recently, she has started to have this HORRIBLE musty smell on her belly.

Her belly feels damp, like she would be sweating. If you pick her up the smell gets on your hands and it makes me want to vomit.
Even after a bath, the smell is still there.frown

I went on vacation for 2 weeks and had my parents dog-sit. They bought Purina One Smartblend Chicken & fed her this (I do not feed my dog this; not knocking anyone who does..)

Could it be the food?! Why the sweaty belly?
Please help! I want to be able to snuggle my puppy again puppy

Behavior & Training > Male dog "marking"


Barked: Tue Nov 19, '13 2:23pm PST 
Just as my title suggests, I am having an issue with my male dog (3 years old) urine marking in my home on random items.

I rescued a female puppy, exactly 1 year ago. She was spayed immediately.

He is intact, and did not start marking until about 6 months ago. It has become a daily activity for him, unfortuantely. He also attempts to hump my female after playing and sniffs her behind constantly

I have finally gotten time off from work and an appointment to have him neutered.

I am wondering what are the odds that this "marking" behaviour stops?shrug

Grooming > Clipper/Blade for really thick & fine dog fur?!

Barked: Thu Sep 26, '13 7:35am PST 
My dog has very, very fine light fur that is incredibly thick. He is a mixed breed that looks like a papillion.

To give you an idea of his fur, it is really light (gets airborne quite easily , sticks to everything and shrug and out of his little 8 pounds, his fur is probably 4. LOL! It is that thick.

My Andis pet clippers from PetSmart just aren't cutting it-literally.
They barely make their way thru his thick mane and get overheated and sound like they are about to die out.

Any suggestions for a specific clipper? Or maybe I am just using the wrong blade?

Behavior & Training > Dog beginning to show aggression?


Barked: Wed Jun 5, '13 6:46pm PST 
I have an unaltered 3 year old rat terrier mix and recently he has begun to show aggressive behaviors.
Normally he is playful and sweet; he only acts "aggressive" when he is corrected.
Ex. I tell him to go to his bed, he lets out a low growl..and doesn't move. I say it again, in a firmer tone and he goes, but then he bares his teeth, and snaps at me.
It is almost guaranteed that he will bare his teeth at me when I correct him-something he NEVER did before.
That is before, I adopted a fixed female puppy last November.

It's almost as if he's lashing out in jealousy! Is that possible?
Is he jealous of the new female dog? It is sexual frustration (he tries to mount her daily while they play)?
What happened to my sweet puppy?

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > Shelter rescue! Breed guesses


Barked: Sun Nov 25, '12 7:11pm PST 
I rescued this adorable little girl from a kill-shelter, and need some help guessing her breed(s). Shelter was told by the person that dropped her off, maltese-yorkie mix. She just doesn't look like a morkie, so they were likely misinformed.

She is still a puppy, currently unsure of her age..but about 3-5 pounds, has a wiry coat, short muzzle, and ears that stand up.

here is a link to photos:
