Senior Dogs > Balling up rugs?

Adopt a shelter- dog!

Joker does the same thing with one of the rugs in the spare bedroom. He balls it up and leaves it. He has done this occasionally for the past 5 years now. I have no idea why but I find it pretty funny.

Choosing the Right Dog > A Dog For My Parents

They need to go to a shelter to find an adult dog to suit their lifestyle. A puppy sounds like the last thing they need.

Food & Nutrition > What Kibble Do You Feed?

I eat Innova mixed with Canidae or Solid Gold. I really like Nutro Natural Choice Large breed but my mom doesn't want to feed me it anymore because of the recalls... even though Nutro kibbles weren't in the recall, she is still concerned.

Choosing the Right Dog > HOW MUCH DID YOU PAY?

Joker was $125 as a 10 week old puppy from an animal shelter. That included the neuter, his shots, frontline for the month and heartguard for the month plus a bag of the food he was on and a leash and collar. He's an awesome dog and truly a one of a kind. I would never go to a breeder or a pet store. There are way too many animals being euthanized every minute because they have no homes.

Dog Health > Declawing a dog????

Declawing a cat OR a dog is barbaric. They both involve amputation of part of the toe. The US is the only country who accepts the declawing of cats, people in Europe are shocked we allow such things over here.

On a side note, I've seen people request their dog's teeth be removed because of a dog being nippy which is also absolutely cruel.

If the mucous continues, it can be a sign of whipworms. Whipworms are rarely seen in feces but mucous is a common indication. But it's probably nothing.

Food & Nutrition > FOOD FOR OVERWEIGHT DOGS!?!

Joker

I understand your concern, I would be worried about kidney or heart problems too. He gets long walks multiple times a day and I have cut back on all treats. He goes back to the vet for a recheck in 3 months. They even did a thyroid panel on him and it was all fine so he's just overweight.. Nutro Ultra makes a weight management food that is pretty good, might be worth a try.

Food & Nutrition > rotating foods- are these good choices??????

That's true, some dogs can't handle changes to their food. Two of my dogs are great with it and love to eat different high quality foods and haven't had any problems with it. But my other dog just gets Wellness because I don't think she would be ok with change. It all depends on the dog.

Food & Nutrition > Why do vets do this?

Joker

I wouldn't trust any vet who recommends Purina, Iams or Eukanuba. California Natural is a great food and as you stated, the problems started before you switched.

All 3 of my dogs were adopted from the same no-kill shelter in IL.
Joker was $145 in 2003, Roxy was $200 in 2005. They were both adopted as young puppies so their fees were higher than adult dogs. Apple was 1 year old and she $125 in 2006.

Included in the adoption fee:
Spay/neuter
Bag of Science Diet
Leash
Collar
Vaccinations
Heartworm test
Flea/tick treatment
Deworming
