Food & Nutrition > Grinding kibble?

Surprisingly grinding it made her less interested. I ended up changing foods entirely to Canade and I haven't had any issues. She eats the canade chicken with the Natural Balance rolls grated on top with no issues. And I'm happy since Canade is cheaper then the other brands I tired to get her to eat.

Will grinding Carolines kibble make it more likely she'll eat? Currently we are "fighting " she licks all the wet food and spits the kibble out some days and other days eats it all and other days won't eat anything but some Natural Balance Roll slices I have for dog training.

Do you think if I grind the appropriate amount of kibble ans combined with wet food she's more likely to eat it?

Or welcoming any other ideas.

Thanks smile

Dog Health > Hard skin with greenish tint near hotspot

Thanks for responding. The tiny hotspot turned out to be a huge portion of her leg. The fur is just now growing back. She was antibiotics for 2 weeks and had a spray for the wound.

The vet felt it was my initial separation of her and my now passed Mr. Beagle whom she'd not been apart of ever in the two years we lived together.

She made a full recovery thankfully.

Dog Health > Senior dog with heart murmur, second opinion?

Sweet Caroline has a grade 2-3 heart murmur since the day I adopted her a little over 2 years ago now. She's roughly 11-13 years old and a basset hound.

The first time I heard she had a heart murmur I freaked out and paid for the expensive EKG and what not. But in all our time together she's only coughed 2x and both those times were from inhaling food not from her heart.

I would take her to various vets knowing all her ailments in advance and let the vet tell me what they thought was wrong with her.

Carolines murmur is pretty loud l, I've heard it with a stethoscope. And out of the 6 vets I've had in the last 2 years only 1 gave her a clean bill of health aka no heart murmur. I never stepped foot in that clinic again. Even the shot clinics vets could heart it.

My best advice to you is see another vet but don't mention the heart murmur. Let them do a physical which includes listening to the heart and lungs and see what they tell you unprompted and unbiased.

Fyi: Caroline has a murmur and still runs around, eats a lot including weird things from time to time, and doesn't cough or have fluid build up.

Hi all,

Sweet Caroline has a hot spot. Or at least I think it's a hot spot. It's got a huge about 3inch in diameter hard mass under it that feels like a disk or a scab. I'm not quite sure what it is. We're going to the vet Sunday at the earliest available appointment. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what it could be?

Sorry for formatting issues sent from phone.

Anything but another beagle. I don't think another male beagle will do me any good once Jake is gone. It will be too painful. Plus I don't think beagles and cats mix very well.
I've always adopted both of my dogs and my cat was a random find one day.
So any breed really but sincevim usually an apartment dweller small dogs

Dog Health > Depression after losing a bonded pair mate? ?

Sweet- Caroline

Does being present at the passing of your bonded pair dog make the passing easier for the surviving dog?

Jake is loosing his battle rather quickly and I have begun contemplating life after him and I worry about Caroline.

I've read both here and on other blogs how the surviving dog sometimes dies from depression. Is there anyway to lesson that chance of happening? :

Would Caroline being present at Jake's passing help her not be so upset? Or should she just stay at home? I'm in no position now nor do I feel I will be for sometime after Jake to acquire a new dog or puppy so that's out.

Any suggestions on this would be helpful. While I continue to monitor Jake I worry about what happens to our pack after he goes.

Thanks in advance,

Sweet Caroline and Mom.

Dog Health > Deep breathing... Is this an advancing heart murmur?

Hello all!

Sweetie has a low grade heart murmur a 1 out of 4. The last few days she's been breathing really really hard in her sleep. She was still her usual fun loving self. She'd get up for treats whatever, love to go on walks. All that fun stuff.

Today she's even breathing hard while she's awake and I'm not sure if it's do to her heart murmur or something else.

Any thoughts?

Dog Health > Dog growling and turning head to nip when picked up

Jake does that if he's got too excited and swallow what I assume is spit. He's hacking probably to clear his airwaves.

If you don't want to be picked up you should just leave him on the floor. Not all dogs are cool with that. Maybe you could get a dog carrier or something if you want to carry him around with you. It sounds to me like you startled him and then he "chocked on spit" and had to clear his airwaves.

Hope the little guy is okay.

Good luck.
