You might see if the holistic vet would do a phone consult and ship herbs. I was just suggesting it because I've seen the Chinese herbs work really well on skin cases

I'd suggest going to a holistic vet who uses Chinese herbs. I work at a holistic vet clinic and we see lots of itchy dogs who have gone to regular vets for years with no relief .the Chinese herbs take a month or so to work but then the dog isn't itchy anymore. My dog is on a Chinese herb for his stomach issues and has not been sick since he started the herbs.

Dog Health > Bladder Stones, Unhelpful Vet

Sandy

Urinary so for life actually is a good recommendation. Normally vets perform an x-ray (to see the stones) then surgery, then urinary so for life. It's possible that urinary so can dissolve stones on its own but it takes a very long time and it depends on the amount of stones I've usually seen it used after surgery to prevent the stones from occurring. It uses ph so u cannot feed your dog anything else at all that means no treats no table scraps ONLY urinary so. I have a cat that eats it he went 5 years with no uti I took him off the food and he had a uti in 3 weeks. I know several dogs eating it post bladder stone removal surgery and they have not had any stone growth. I also know 2 dogs whose owners refused to use it and they had to have surgery again.

Senior Dogs > Lifting my dog from a lying postion

U can get a sling that's made to help people lift their dogs. I believe dr.fosters and smith the website has them or you could type dog sling into amazon. U can also use a towel you roll it up and slip it under the hips and lift with it, but the sling is easier to use. Is he on any pain medication?

He needs more exercise. If u make him tired he wont get hyper. Take him to a dog park, or on a run or walk. 3 or 4 mile long walks a day and he will be sleeping not biting.

Dog Health > heartworm concern :(

Heartworm prevention should be given once a month not every 2 months. It should be given all year. I use to use interceptor and switched to sentinel. I hope your dogs don't have heartworms, giving prevention all year is the best thing you can do to protect them

Food & Nutrition > Struvite Crystals, Food & treat options? Lengthy post.....

Sandy

tiny...but fast!

Struvite crystals can be normal but when they are more than 1 per field when u are looking at the urine on a microscope it is not normal and they can form stones. The royal canine diet can dissolve stones but it takes almost 6 months of feeding it exclusively (no treats allowed) and it only works sometimes on very mild cases. Usually surgery followed by using royal canine is what's best for dogs with stones. Radiographs need to be taken to actually see the stones. Crystals in urine can mean stones but can just be an infection. If your dog does have stones I would do the surgery and then never feed anything but the urinary so from royal canine. You may need to only give him distilled water as well. I know 3 shih zhus who have had stones and the only one who hasn't had to have the surgery 2 times was the one who stayed on the royal canine urinary so.

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.

Dog Health > My dog has been puking blood for MONTHS... help, anyone?

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.
