U can feed the puppies easily with a tube. The vet can give u a red rubber catheter(used for male cats) and then u measure to their last rib and stick the tube down their esophagus to the line where u measured. U can use a syringe to put formula into the end of the tube. A vet should be able to demonstrate this for u. Its easy to do. U do want their ne k Ina natural position don't stretch it or you will go in the trachea instead of the esophagus.

You might want to try an all Italian greyhound forum for this question. There is one www.iggyplanet.com this site messes up links so just google iggyplanet. What u are describing sounds like hge. Also have u tried famotidine(pepsid ) instead of omeprazole? My Italian greyhound has acid reflux and he has to eat 4 meals a day at 6am, noon, 6pm, and midnight or he gets sick. When he had hge it was from being allergic to chicken. It was a raw diet(Stella and chewys) and eating 4 times a day that helped him.

Raw Food Diet > Can I feed pre-made raw long term?

Usually you will see something about balanced, or approved for all life stages and there will be a chart about how much to feed. I feed stella and chewys not bravo so I'm not sure about if they are all complete and balanced but it should be on the bag somewhere. The Stella and chewys bag says complete and balanced, and approved for all life stages in the bag.

I have feed premade raw over a year. It is ok to feed long term, and is already balanced for you. You do not need to add anything to make it complete. I know several dogs who have eaten premade raw their entire lives. I do think would be too expensive for a large dog because I spend about $80 a month on my dog and he weighs 11 pounds.

Raw Food Diet > Raw Meaty Beef Rib Bone-Question?

I have an Italian greyhound and I brush his teeth every night with vet toothpaste and use essential healthy mouth gel. I feed my Italian greyhound raw because he has had tummy problems including hge. I feed premade Stella and chewys raw, but I don't do bones. His teeth are very clean from the daily brushing , to get the back teeth I use a human child toothbrush(the one that says 0-2 age) and I slide it inside his cheek and hold his mouth closed so I can get all the teeth.

Small Dogs > Need Help with New Dog- Hypoglycemic, need opinions!!

How often were u feeding the dog? A dog that small needs many very small meals a day I would probably feed her every 6 hours. That would likely stop the hypoglycemia . I have a small dog I feed at 6am, noon, 6 pm,and midnight. U can also get this stuff for dogs called nutrical that is in a tube and give little squirts of that in between meals

Puppy Place > Help with potty training

I see that you have a toy poodle/cavalier puppy toy breed dogs take much longer to potty train than big dogs and need to be taken out more often. Also toy breed dogs do better in an exercise pen with a top (rover and Midwest make them but make sure u get the top) this gives them more space u can put a bed and then pee pads in there. Dogs who use the bathroom in a crate are not ready for a crate. I think your dog would benefit from an exercise pen with a top. Then ur dog can have a place to sleep and a place to potty. There is a website try googling dfolly Italian greyhounds where there is a link to how to potty train using an exercise pen.

I feed raw, but switching proteins feeding raw it would be hard on a dog with allergies. Merrek makes some single protein grain free kibbles. If u r going to feed raw id do a novel protein, like venison or wild boar. I believe merrek has a novel protein kibble that might work for ur dog. Your dog might have allergies to other things besides food as well.
