I wanted to pass along a tip, especially to new owners whose first dog is now aging... a lot of old dogs seem to build up gunk in their ears much easier than young dogs ever do. I can only guess at all the reasons why. Just check those ears often to make sure they aren't in need of cleaning. If you're not comfortable cleaning out your dog's ears yourself, you may want to ask your vet to show you how to do home maintenance cleaning. But, for reeeeeaaallly deep cleaning or some seriously persistant "icky" stuff, I'd say let the vet clean it out and give you an opinion.

And, as always, if the ear is red & inflammed and smells gross and your dog is really bothered by it, it's probably infected and needs to go to the vet!

Especially as your dog starts to slow down and spends less time all over YOU and more time snoozing in their bed, make a point to check ears habitually. smile Your dog will appreciate squeaky-clean ears.

I think you can only block someone from paw-mailing you.

Well, another round-about solution is to join the group, and then select "I'll read messages on my group page" and then you shouldn't ever get the invites again (or any other messages from the group).

Hmm, I don't think there is a way to do this, unfortunately. You may have to block ALL Dogster e-mails in your account settings in order to block group invites, which is inconvenient.

It's a great (and needed) feature idea, however, so definitely contact Dogster about it: click here for the contact form.

Howard, try going to "Manage Photos" and then you should see a box for picture tags. I thought I saw one of your pictures in the stroll yesterday, so it looks like it will work!

You might want to call your vet to double check, but my 24 lb dog was just recommended a dose of 250 mg once a day of glucosamine/chondroitin by the vet. So, it seems like a rule of thumb might be 10 mg per pound of body weight. Because g/c is available over the counter, I'm assuming that there will be general dosage directions on the box as well. I haven't had a chance to look at any yet myself. smile

As for her ears, my "miracle worker" for growing back healthy fur is cocoa butter. Slather some on those ears on a regular basis and see if it can get the fur to grow back in. It'll make her skin healthier too, and can help heal scarring. Cocoa butter has amazed me every time I've used it on dogs, I hope it gives you the same results!

Dog Health > Systemic Yeast Infections

I am looking for information on systemic yeast infections in dogs.

Have any Dogsters suffered chronically from one? (I need a support group!)

What kind of dietary changes or supplements were helpful to your treatment? (I've heard probiotics and a potato-free diet?)

Any bathing/anti-itch sprays that you can recommend? (For fast relief during flare-ups)

For older doggies, did you have thyroid issues at the same time? (Did medication help significantly?)

You can also post an intersection alert (click here!) at the major intersections near where he was found.

I'm glad he is in a safe place in the meantime!

And, like Murphy said, contact all the local vets with his flyer. Chances are that some vet in your city knows this dog. The owner may not have told their vet that the dog is missing, so it's better not to say "Has anyone reported a husky missing?" but to ask them if they recognize the dog on the flyer.
