It is a hard decision to make. I went through this twice with our Greyhounds. Once the pain got so bad and they could not move or eat, it was more than time. We tried a lot of different things and spent a lot of money but in the end all we did was keep them alive for ourselves and not for the dog. They were suffering. You will know in your heart when it is time.

I would also add Glucosomine/Chondrotin with MSM to her food or in pill form. It is natural in most dry dog food in the protein source but most likely not enough. Heating pad therapy works pretty well also. Comfortable is the key word.

Behavior & Training > My 1 yr old Jackchi hates her nails being cut!

It is not unusual for our pets to get upset having their nails trimmed. Another option would be that you try taking her to a grooming salon to have her nails trimmed as it will probably cause her less anxiety if someone else does it who is trained to handle dogs that have issues with their nails being trimmed. Pushing her to be obedient on this issue is probably not good for her. Good luck.

You could try a grain free or limited ingredient kibble. Try adding some green beans, yogurt, sliced carrots, cheese, as options to top off the kibble to see if he will eat better. Good luck.

My mom also lets me have Dentley's Stuffed Knuckle Bone Dog Treats also, which go well with the Greenies for my teeth. I love them both. She also puts more peanut butter in the bone for me. They last me at least two weeks.

Sounds like separation anxiety since she is used to sleeping with you. Why is she not allowed to continue sleeping with you. Anxiety meds might help. Another option is to try a Thunder Shirt which gives them the comfort of being snuggled and calms them down. Keep us updated. Giving away your dog is not the answer as it would make you so sad. Good luck.

Sorry to hear that Kasa is having issues with allergies. What food are you feeding her, that could be the possibility or environmental? A good grain free or limited ingredient diet could help.

I do agility training with my mom and she purchased some equipment from fitpawsusa.com so I could practice. They have all sorts of play equipment for those of us who need more activity.

Great response Mulder. I have trained mine to hand signals which work really well. I do not like yelling at pets to get them to do what you would like them to do as they tend to not listen. They have to have something to focus on. Willow is so well mannered but forgets sometimes and I also do what Mulder suggested, especially when we take a walk and meet people. Try it and let us know how it works.
