Poor little Sponge!

Yes, it's possible that the urinating on her bed was from the sedation. Two of my foster dogs wet the bed after being fixed as a result of the anesthesia.

If it were me, I'd keep the wounds & stiches dry rather than clean them just now. Hopefully the antibiotic will help her fight off any nasty organisms that are on them.

I'm no expert, but I think not eating might slow down her digestive system. I'd keep feeding her if she's hungry & take her out regularly, just as you have been. Seems like eventually she'll have to go. Was the vet concerned about the amount of time that it's been since she's gone?

Good luck to Sponge. I hope she gets better soon! hug

Trixie - I know this is an old thread, but I haven't been on in a while & just saw it. Ridgebacks are not known for same-sex aggression. In fact, I know many people who have more than one male & they do just fine.

That being said - I have always thought the male/female combination works the best, too.

He does look a lot like a Ridgeback, maybe mixed with Lab. That whitening of the face is very common in older Ridgies. Max is starting to get some. Makes him look distinguished!

This one's really cute! It should be required watching for anyone considering breeding Ridgebacks - or owning more than one puppy at a time!

I'm so sorry that happened. cry There's no way to know whether Jindal would have lived or not. As much as you wanted to help him, you might not have been able to save him anyway. He's not suffering any more, and that's good. hughug

I think that Parvo can live in your house for quite some time, so you might think about waiting for 6 months before fostering a puppy or unvaccinated dog again. I'm sure your adult dogs will be fine, though. hug

Thanks for sharing, you guys!

I've been cooking for my dogs on & off for a while, too. Do your dogs do OK w/ that much liver & kidney in the recipe? I always thought those organs should comprise only 5-10% of the total amount of meat fed.

One other question - Do you follow the recommended amts on the container of bonemeal or calcium supplement, or just do a dry measure per the recipe? I know that different calcium sources provide different ratios of calcium to phosphorus, so one type might require that you add more than another type. Do these recipes account for that as well?

You've gotten some pretty accurate information so far, Tyler!

Ridgebacks are, indeed, independent, but extremely loyal. They don't bark unnecessarily. They're very loving and affectionate to their owners, but can be aloof with strangers. They prefer to watch people for a while, and then seek attention on their terms! These are not wiggly, "pet me", types in general - but they can be very friendly sometimes, too.

Ridgies are generally good with other dogs when well socialized (Max loves little dogs!), and are quiet in the house. They can also exercise with the best of them. And the nail thing is OH SO TRUE!! We do manage, but every Ridgeback I've ever met HATES to have its nails done!

By the way - this is a female-dominated breed! The males are typically described by their owners as "sweet", but the females are the ones in charge. wink Like all sighthounds, off-lead activity is not recommended. They will be off in a flash if they see something they want to chase, and often won't even hear you calling them.

Dermoid sinus can be detected when the dogs are pups. Be sure to ask any breeder whether their pups have been tested. It can be a very serious condition.
